Interpretation of Giovanni Bellini’s Madonna and Child
– … These images are the central icons for the Catholic and the Orthodox churches. While Mary may be referred to as the Madonna in other contexts, it is applied specifically to an artwork in which Mary, with or without baby Jesus, is the main focus, and central figure of this artwork. The word is from Old Italian “ma donna” which means (my lady). Mary and the infant may or may not be surrounded by the saints, like in earlier versions.

The Timeline of Art
– Timeline of Art The Thread: The thread which joins all the isms in the twentieth century are its slow evolution from one period to another.

But del Sarto finds himself trapped between two identities: That of a husband to his wife, and that of an artist to his patrons. Andrea del Sarto recognizes that his work as a painter often distances him from his wife, but he also recognizes that his love for his wife has reduced his capability to paint subjects as they are.

A Painter as a Poet
– A Painter as a Poet Each of these words could easily describe the fervent brushstrokes on a painters canvas. However, it is the passion of E.E. Cummings poetry that they are meant to express. The words and designs of his works embody the same breathless quality contained in modern art. It is no surprise that he was an open-minded critic, attentive observer, inspired participant, and devoted lover of various art forms besides his renowned poetry. The concepts of impulsive creation which are evident in art are also apparent in Cummings’ poems…. ;
