'The Painter’s Family', Giorgio de Chirico | Tate

'The Painter’s Family', Giorgio de Chirico | Tate | eArt | Scoop.it
Inge Tang's insight:

In the mid-1920s de Chirico reworked many of the themes of his pre-war paintings in the light of his interest in the art of the old masters. In contrast to their pre-war counterparts, the mannequins in this work have a flesh-like solidity, while their grouping echoes traditional scenes of the Holy Family.


The easel and painting stick appear to refer to the artist's belief in the importance of old-fashioned technical skills. However, de Chirico's attitude towards tradition and the past was always ambiguous and ironic. The building fragments that emerge from the mannequins' stomachs, for example, seem vaguely classical but also suggest a child's building blocks.

The Complete Bridgman Part 2

The Complete Bridgman Part 2 | eArt | Scoop.it
Inge Tang's insight:

At first the study of heads should be in the abstract, that is, we should forget everything that distinguishes one head from another and think of the masses common to all heads. Heads are about the same size. Each is architecturally conceived, constructed and balanced; each is a monumental structure.

 

By first mentally conceiving of a head as a cube, rather than as an oval or egg-shaped form, we are able to make simple, definite calculations.

Line rhythm or music depends on the shape of your lines, their relation to each other and their relation to the boundaries of your panel. In all good work this music of line is in harmony with the subject (the artistic intention) of your picture or drawing.

Richard Dadd | Tate

Richard Dadd | Tate | eArt | Scoop.it
Inge Tang's insight:

English painter. He was the fourth of nine children of Robert Dadd, an apothecary and chemist in Chatham. Dadd began drawingwhen he was about 13, and it seems likely that he learnt the technique of miniature painting during his formative years.


In 1837 Dadd entered the Royal Academy Schools, London. Dadd was regarded as one of the most promising young artists of his generation and was universally liked for his gentleness, intelligence and cheerful good nature.

The Complete Bridgman Part 1

The Complete Bridgman Part 1 | eArt | Scoop.it

Before you make a line you must have a clear conception of what you want to draw. In your mind it is necessary to have an idea of what the figure to be drawn is doing.

 

Study the model from different angles. Sense the nature and condition of the action, or inaction. This conception is the real beginning of your drawing.

The Practice and Science of Drawing Part 1 (Drømmemila)

The Practice and Science of Drawing Part 1 (Drømmemila) | eArt | Scoop.it

Art probably owes more to form for its range of expression than to colour.

Inge Tang's insight:

Many of the noblest things it is capable of conveying are expressed by form more directly than by anything else.

 

And it is interesting to notice how some of the world’s greatest artists have been very restricted in their use of colour, preferring to depend on form for their chief appeal.

 

It is reported that Apelles only used three colours, black, red, and yellow, and Rembrandt used little else.

The Practice and Science of Drawing Part 3 (Drømmemila)

The Practice and Science of Drawing Part 3 (Drømmemila) | eArt | Scoop.it

The masses that go to make up a picture have variety in their shape, their tone values, their edges, in texture or quality, and in gradation. Quite a formidable list, but each of these particulars has some rhythmic quality of its own about which it will be necessary to say a word.

Inge Tang's insight:

As to variety of shape, many things that were said about lines apply equally to the spaces enclosed by them. It is impossible to write of the rhythmic possibilities that the infinite variety of shapes possessed by natural objects contain, except to point out how necessary the study of nature is for this.
