Art History Movements & Discerning Eye ~ Differentiating Movements & Artists
Although I have been an artist for many years, it was only by going over slide after slide in art history for these presentations that my eye learned (without my conscious awareness) to automatically differentiate between movements, years and artists with almost flawless precision. This only fully dawned on me when I walked among a large array of varied art posters at a large urban hospital. I picked out each one's movement, artist and time period. I didn't get a single one wrong.
I next realized that I now could see paintings from different movements and artists side by side and pick out the differences. This all made me curious about whether a program could be put together in which a student could look at two paintings and learn to do the same. So I have put two paintings as close together as I can so the eye can easily travel all parts of both images. Then on other slides we discover the differences.
There are three separate powerpoint presentations. In the first, the two paintings are seen pulled together and then pulled back apart and identified. In the second powerpoint, the student must pick the movement out of four choices. In the third powerpoint, the student is given the name of the artist of one of the works and is given four choices for the name of the other artist.
The Preview shows two of the paintings in all three powerpoint shows. Download it to get the full idea.
