Transcript of art history and appreciation corse project

Art powerpoint question Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine chapel and Diego Rivera's murals reflect various aspects of the times when artists lived and worked. How do the works of these artists express the culture, politics, religion, and artistic movements of their time? Michelangelo Buonarroti lived in 1475-1564 (Renaissance)
lived during the italian wars between Spain and France
was a sculptor, architect, and painter
born on March 6, 1475, in Caprese, Italy
His father worked for the Florentine government
his father did not approve of his interest in art
At 13, Michelangelo was apprenticed to painter Domenico Ghirlandaio Diego Rivera born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato State, Mexico, on December 8, 1886
His prominent style was cubism, like Braque, Matisse, & Picasso
participated in the founding of the Revolutionary Union of Technical Workers, Painters and Sculptors in1922
later that year he joined the Mexican Communist Party political influences of Diego Rivera In 1922, he joined the Mexican Communist Party and became a hardcore political activist
his art reflects working-class scenes and society as a whole
he married Frida Kahlo and soon adopted much of her style
became less political and more casual political influences of Michelangelo A lot of his ideas were influenced by Neo-Platonism
inspired by the Classical times of the ancient Greeks and Romans
had more religious inspiration than Diego Rivera
father had been mayor of Tuscany Religious influences As a favorite of popes, two of Michelangelo’s best works are religious in theme—David and the Sistine Chapel
Michelangelo completed David, the Old Testament’s King David (who defeated Goliath)
In the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo exhibits knowledge of the Bible and Roman Catholic doctrine
Pope Julius II hired Michelangelo to paint the ceiling from 1508 to 1512 Michelangelo created many more works, including the Pieta, the pioneering Mannerist works in the Laurentian Library, the Last Judgment, the humanist Medici tombs for the New Sacristy of San Lorenzo (for Lorenzo, duke of Urbino, and Giuliano, duke of Nemours), and the architecture of St. Peter’s Basilica Religious influences Diego Rivera was mostly politically influenced while Michelangelo was religiously influenced
Diego was an absolute atheist
He did not believe in God and made this very explicit in many of his murals
he wrote in his mural at the Alameda Central "Dios no existe"and caused a huge controversy in Mexican society
did not represent religious images unless they were useful as social observations Cultural influences While studying in Spain,Diego was fascinated by the works of Cezanne, who introduced him to cubism
He was also very interested in Mondrian and created many paintings reproducing his style
His greatest influence, however, was Pablo Picasso
Diego was interested in cubism because it questioned the pre-established conceptions of painting
This technique, however, did not fulfill him completely because he felt a lack of originality in his work
he decides to find his own style by going back to a more realistic way of painting
The themes his murals would try to portray Mexican identity Cultural influences Michelangelo had a collection of antiques
Because of his collection of antiques, it can be demonstrated one of his influences to bring the classical form into his work was the esteem in which he held the past Michelangelo's artistic style Italian High Renaissance
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was more sculptor than painter, but he was orderd to paint by Pope Julius II Diego's artistic style social realism
From 1913 to 1917 Rivera, influenced by the work of Picasso and others, painted in the cubist style.
In 1917 he shifted into Post-Impressionism
In 1921 he became involved in the government sponsored Mexican Mural program Summary both Michelangelo and Diego Rivera were talented artists.Diego had multiple art styles and he excelled at each of them, while Michelangelo was mostly a sculptor but proved to be an excellent painter when he painted the Sistine Chapel. Diego was mostly influenced by his Mexican culture because he was atheist, while Michelangelo was mostly influenced by classical greek and roman. It is uncertain wether he was religious. He only painted religious scenes because the pope ordered him to. He had lots of political influences because his father was the mayor of Tuscany. Answer The work of these artists reflects their time periods by using politics and religion. Michelangelo lived in the renaissance period where almost all art was religious and the fresco style was very popular. Diego Rivera lived in Mexico and used his roots in his murals.
