Overview Of Reclaimed Wood Wall Art

By Stacey Burt

The history of Western arts is reduced largely to history of European arts from the Middle Ages and the classical Greco-Roman arts; and the beginning of arts history with the civilizations that are considered precedents (Egypt and the Middle East). The artistic manifestations of earlier times in Europe and the Mediterranean basin are very different, because although some are very distant in time and have a great cultural distance (prehistoric arts); other non (reclaimed wood wall art).

Less attention has been given arts productions of other civilizations, and even peripheral areas of Western civilization itself (as colonial America), regardless of considerations that may be of importance compared with that of central areas of western civilization . Such orientation is often accused of Eurocentrism by supporters of a global. Although the concept of arts is modern, it is perfectly usable in architecture, sculpture, painting and antique jewelry, and many of its real achievements arts and not mere utilitarian craft products. The formulation of Western classical aesthetics begins with the Greek and Roman cultures.

The Romans played many of Greek architectural schemes, but also introducing new elements such as the arch, as well as new techniques and materials. In Rome, on the other hand, the civil architecture will be even more important.

The arts during the Middle Ages was almost exclusively linked to religion, specifically Christianity. During this period, in which the vast majority of farmers were illiterate, visual arts were the primary means of communicating religious ideas with sermons. The Catholic Church was one of few institutions rich enough to pay for the work of arts, and therefore most of works of this period were religious in nature (conditioning the emergence of what is known as sacred arts).

The sculpture reached during the fourth dynasty absolute mastery of technique in elegant and realistic depictions of scribes and statues of pharaohs stately. Dominated the "law of frontal". The mural representations, embossed or paintings, represented by symbolic hierarchical approach and mythological images, royalty and, later, scenes of everyday life (in tombs of nobles). Predominant "canon profile".

The two main architectural styles (mainly related to construction of cathedrals) were the Romanesque and Gothic. The Romanesque is characterized by thick walls and massive structures, just lightened by openings. The Gothic, characterized by buildings of greater height and with a large number of openings, marked the emergence of new building techniques, being able to dispense with thick walls through the use of vaults in which the rib structure is independent from cloths.

In construction of cathedrals is sought to create a "mystical" feeling inside ofm, ie interiors to recreate a "heavenly" atmosphere, an effect that becomes more noticeable in Gothic sought. One thing to note is the appearance of unions in this period, bringing together arts who held a monopoly on practical knowledge of particular branch of production.

It should be noted that the people in Middle Ages did not have the habit of reading, and very few had access to writing and could read. Therefore, arts was a way to spread in society the doctrine of Christianity. It is difficult to identify individual arts in this period, except for some foreman in architectural construction, and most of works are by anonymous authors. The Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci is the symbol of humanistic spirit of Renaissance. The arts of this period A period reflects do arts design features: classicism, reason and symmetry.
