Reaching For The Moon
Maxfield Parrish (maybe not...it could be an Edward Eggleston)

The old argument (the one in my head) rears its ugly head...is this graphic design or is this art? Perhaps when Parrish was working it was an easy answer, but today, with incredible software and lightning-fast computers it's not so clear. There are numerous examples of amazing "art" that were created on a PC using off-the-shelf software.

For those of you who prefer real art, here is something for you that should be less taxing on your artistic aesthetic.

It's not the case, as people assume, of putting brush to blank paper and painting a picture.

24 Graphic art made with computer tools can definitely be classified as art. The computer is a tool, just like brushes and canvas. It's just another medium. It also enables people with arthritic or palsied hands to create something very beautiful or moving or thought-provoking. Don't be dissin art made via computer.

46 Art is composition and skill. Traditionally learning the skill also meant you learned composition on the way through.

With photoshop and other tools the skill is easier, it comes in a box with instructions, but the composition and the eye for what is "familiar enough to be understood but enough off what is expected to be interesting" still has to be learned and practiced.

I do wonder if Dada was an attempt to shed that measured avant-garde vision of the impressionists.

Sort of the way Punk was supposed to be a revolution against the top 40 vision of the whole "give us something new and exciting, but not too new and not too raw, and make it 2 minutes and 47 seconds and make it catchy"

I like Parrish, but some of his stuff seems remote. He liked landscapes with trees and craggy rocks and quiet houses and snow, but hated painting trees with snow on them.

I like Much better, but that might be the bewbs.

Anyway, he was a genius with color - the reason for Orange is that it's the complementary color to the Royal Blue in the background. Your eye knows it's right even when your intellect doesn't quite grasp it.

59 The purpose of some of Parrish's paintings may be illustration, like Wyeth, but I regard them as art. In the case of Parrish, I absolutely love his use of color as well as his subjects. The neo-classical (my designation) subjects are so successful in the effect they create. The more stylized, fairy tale paintings are both fun, close to the words they portray, and can show a sense of humor or whimsy.

If his works aren't art, they will do until the real thing shows up.

It can be both, but I don't believe that all graphic art is "art", just like all painting is not art, or all sculpture, etc. To me, something has to meet specific guidelines before I'll consider it ART. I also believe that there are ranks in art--that something is more of an artform that another. But my definition of art is different than someone else's. No one has the authority to dictate what is Art and what isn't to someone else.

72 The way I see it (and my son is a Graphic Designer), Graphic Design is merely "applied art." As my son said while getting his degree at an art school, "I'm in the Graphic Design program, you know, the one where you actually make money." I think that by the common definition, anything is "Art" if it is made for "art's sake" as they say. The medium is irrelevant.

81 I loves me some art nouveau. On the more "what is art?" sort of topic: graphic design is commercial art is art. I mean, that was literally Andy Warhol's whole point. It was easy to get lost in the pretense and pettifogging, but the core message was really, really simple. "This soup can (and arrangements thereof) is a really fucking good-looking soup can. It has artistic merit." "This picture of Marilyn Monroe is a pleasing balance of shapes - it's a good photo because it's a good structure because IT IS ART".

Raymond Loewy is well recognized, but unsung as an artist - but is his kind of extremely brilliant arrangement of shapes and colors to provoke emotion that different than Rothko? Only because he made it to be reproduced.

On a related note, concept art is the great invisible realm of surrealism of our day. Went to a panel at Dragon Con hosted by Stephan Martiniere - fascinating stuff.

106 I once read an interesting essay written by an art student who had a professor that threw a plate of spaghetti and meatballs at a classroom wall, shouted "IS IT ART?" and then spent the rest of the class making the case that it was.

The student took the view that it was not art and wrote the essay as a rebuttal. It was a great essay, but I read it online back in the dark days of the interwebz and haven't been able to find it since. Wish I had saved or printed it.

133 "74 I've seen a lot of hood ornaments based on this print. Or is it the other way around?"

You're probably thinking of "Nellie in her Nightie" aka "The Spirit of Ecstasy", which has been placed on most Rolls Royce models since 1911. (and subsequently copied by other auto makers hoping to get in on some of the RR cachet)

It wasn't sculpted by Parrish, but both artists were working at the same time and reflected the Edwardian aesthetic. The model for the sculpture, Eleanor Velasco Thornton, was the mistress of Lord Montagu, an early Rolls enthusiast.

It seems there's always a sad ending to stories of that era, and Ms. Thornton was killed in 1915 when the ship she was on was sunk by a German U-Boat.

W's work was pretty good early on. He seemed to have potential, but then he plateaued. He started to do bland portraits of political figures from pictures he found in the news. Don't get me wrong, I think portraiture a can make great art (see Rembrandt). But he is painting what he wants and enjoys it, so good for him.

I have a pet theory that Jackson Pollock borrowed his paintings from nature. Specifically granite. I've seen actual granite stone that looks just like one of his paintings. They even 'named' the stone on the tag, 'Pollock'. With a price tag of $50,000 for an approx 7 foot by 10 foot piece.

It has to be seen to be believed.

145 For the Horde's edification, a brief bio of the actual artist and a link where you can see more:

Edward Mason Eggleston was born in Ashtabula Ohio on November 22, 1882. He attended Columbus, Ohio Art School and studied under Harvey Dunn former student of Howard Pyle.

Most of his career was spent in New York. He had a successful career as a commercial artist was a member of the Advertising Club of New York as well as Society of Illustrators. He painted calendars for the Thomas Murphy Co. and Joseph C. Hoover and son as well as Brown and Bigelow. As a genre his works included many Indian maidens along with Arabian. Egyptian and pirate girls.

He died on Jan. 14, 1941 at age 58.

It's amazing how many students misunderstand what this means. Many think that a painting can mean anything the viewer wants because they say so. A sculpture about peace and healing can be about oppression and division because reasons. I try to tell them that it is subjective to their tastes, but the meaning is concrete---UNLESS the artist made it deliberately message-less so the viewer can project his own onto it. This is a very recent development, though.

Just finished the arduous process of kitchen remodel. Looked at many many slabs of Granite, many were so stunningly beautiful that we would never be able to say "put the sink there" and cut out a piece of it. God, the most masterful artist. Go figure.

Truly amazing stuff occurring over billions of years and under incredible pressure. I would suggest art lovers take a look.

I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the Pollock stone and said, 'Pollock'. The clerk said, 'Look at the name on the tag'. It was like 'Pollock - Tier 21' or something like that. When the budget allows Tier 3 or 4 it was totally out of our budget.

There was also a 'Van Gogh' stone that had all of the brilliant colors of 'Starry Night'. Once again, a $50,000 stone.

205 . A sculpture about peace and healing can be about oppression and division because reasons. I try to tell them that it is subjective to their tastes, but the meaning is concrete---UNLESS the artist made it deliberately message-less so the viewer can project his own onto it. This is a very recent development, though.

Posted by: Kris at September 19, 2017 10:06 AM (nwqNw)

Thanks you for that. Well said. Art used to make sense even accounting for artistic license. The artist has a message. But hey you can just take someone's words and distort them according to to your feelings. Or your own gender for that matter so...

There's a line to be drawn, somewhere in there, between what gets created by the artist, and what is the work of the tools he uses.

I used to do some stuff with photoshop years ago, and got pretty good with it. If you give me a paintbrush and a slab of canvas, no matter how long I dabbed at it, no art would be brought.

So when considering music, if I pick up an electric guitar, I could... could mind you (I can't right now) with some basic training make stuff that sounds not dissimilar to the so-called greats of the rock era.

Is that art? Do their hands create it, or the instruments they use, and where is the line between the two?

281 The 'art via computer' poses an interesting possibility. One can imagine software that produces random image 'stuff', and then via some genetic algorithm begins to modify it based on human feedback, 'Likes'/'Dislikes' by a large audience. The results might be interesting, or really, really sucky.

grammie you need to get some Kurt Schlichter into your life. He. too, is tired. Because he understands why we get whipsawed:

The Brooke Baldwin mammary mess is just another example of how liberals leverage their ability to create new rules out of thin air as a means of asserting their power over us normals. What was A-OK yesterday is now forbidden, and what was forbidden yesterday is now mandatory. Their goal is to keep our heads spinning and paralyze us with fear, like nearsighted corporals caught in a minefield and terrified that if we take one wrong step we will detonate a concealed wrongthink booby-trap. They want us living in fear of their fussy wrath, and that is precisely why it is so important for us to keep abreast of pseudo-scandals like this so we can nip these libfascists' schemes in the bud and deny them the ability to rack up yet another victory in the culture war.

As they start playing Yoko gets into a black bag and starts rolling around on the stage in front of them. How f-ed up did Lennon have to be or amount of self hate did he have to want to put up with that?

Old Curt was a black man, with white curly hair,

I'd give old Curt my money, he'd play all day for me.

I seem to recall Trump making basically that argument back in the 80's or 90's, probably at least half in jest.

I mean, yeah-- the UN Building is in New York. So was Trump. I bet Trump's mind was cascading with shimmering whatever at the potential, what he could do with that structure and/or land.

You can make cases for and against the UN as an institution, how much money they should get, what strings we should attach, all that's fine. But does the physical headquarters have to be in Actual F'ing New York City? Why not Geneva, or Paris, or Vienna, or London, or Milan, or even San Francisco or Vancouver?

And that's even if a big city is necessary.

382 The whole 'what is art' question is one of those that can lead you into the weeds very easily.

One definition is that anything that evokes a reaction in the viewer is art, but that opens up crap like Jackson Pollock and computer-generated art (no human interaction apart from the coding) into the realm of 'art'.

Another definition requires craft and work, which might leave out some modern computer generated art.

It's all ultimately subjective. Which is kinda frustrating.

424 To ask whether a concrete object or collection of objects is or is not Art seems to be a poorly formed question.

"Art" isn't really a category that a noun can belong to or not belong to. Like saying is this red, or is this 50kg, or is this conductive. It is a purely perceived kind of thing, more of a process or an action. I base this off the following train of thought: As soon as the question "Is this Art?" began to be seriously asked (mid to late 19th century?), it became obvious that there is no rigorous and universal definition of what Art actually is. Art is obvious when not questioned. When questioned, it becomes nebulous.

473 It isn't graphic design. Commercial art would be more accurate. That said, there's nothing wrong with pleasing commercial art or graphic design. Some of it is quite beautiful and innovative.

Fun fact: M. C. Escher bridled at being called 'Maestro' or 'Master'. He did not consider himself a fine artist and said as much any time he was asked. Escher considered himself a graphic artist, a commercial illustrator. I personally never understood this, especially since he also produced little wooden sculptures, perfect little objects that rival most (if not all) contemporary sculptures in terms of aesthetic quality.

So what's the distinction between fine and commercial art? I guess it's about theme and intent, the effect the artist is striving to achieve. I know it when I see it.

510 UN has a lot of tyrants that treat their people as slave-capital, as opposed to the kinder phrase "human-capital". They come to the UN to make deals with people like Hillary that enable them to move their ill gotten money into the banking system. (Hillary did that big time for various african goons).

So Trump is teaching them "let your people go" free. That is not why they come to the UN, they come for graft and globalist positioning to better leverage their tyrannical power.

The US plays the game to try to manage the nations of the world, to offer them "free trade" if they help US. But somehow China always gets in the middle of those deals, and they have co-opted all those trade advantages while still being human abusers and enabling Nork nukes.

TPP supposedly advances our ties to some Asian countries, but China has its hands all over those transactions. And at the root, Democrats ARE commies and grifters, so they sell us out gladly. (see Clinton and chinagate, uranium one, skolkovo etc)

Our multi-nationals also sought profit over country, and loved countries with slaves, no pollution laws, and that cheat. Mutual Fund America has tied their portfolio to said globalist players. Long road to unwind it.

It costs hundreds of billions of dollars a year, and accomplishes almost nothing. Its filled with people who talk but have nothing to say. Its purpose is to stop tyranny and war, and has failed almost every single year of its existence. It has bodies meant to combat certain evils, consisting of people who do or represent groups that carry out those very evils. Its troops have no power to fight, its aid workers prey on the very people they are supposed to be assisting, and its membership blithely violates the laws of the host country while demanding special treatment.

Its almost perfect as an illustration of the left. If anyone would pay attention.

I think there are other states that have "con-con" referenda at similar set intervals. If your state is due for one that might be what the signs are about.

They should move it to Syria.

Then, in 8 years they can move it to another 3rd world shithole.


Or we could subcontract the decision-making to the IOC and have winter and summer UNs every coupla years.

With curling.

I hate to disagree, but then what's Japan's excuse? Not the same dysfunctions, but dysfunctions nonetheless.

547 >> ":Maxfield Parrish (maybe not...it could be an Edward Eggleston)"

Definitely not Parrish, the drapery on the figure (such as it is) isn't characteristic of M.P.'s work. The piece is clearly by one of the many Parrish imitators of his "Girl on a Rock" series in the early 1900s.

549 I think this covers Trump's U.N. speech better than claiming he said bureaucracy is the problem and that can be fixed...

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.

Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety, their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity.

559 315 I'm a frumpy, nerdy, middle-aged homeschool mom whose main occupation at the moment seems to be driving Weasel made with my cookbook boo-boos, sadly.

What I get from this is that you write cookbooks, in crayon, on construction paper. When you make a mistake, you rip the sheet off the pad and eventually turn it into a papier-mâché minivan that you call The Weasel.

Probably posted with black diamonds because I somehow mysteriously have autocucumber in the comment box.
