Pictures and Tears by James Elkins

By James Elkins

«Картины и слезы» - необычное исследование картин и эмоций, которые они вызывают. В прошлом зрители часто приходили в сильное волнение от картин. Греческие живописцы IV в. до н.э. изображали людей в состоянии глубокой печали, чтобы зритель мог бы сопереживать им. Крик перед картинами был обычным делом в средневековье. Большое количество слез было пролито перед картинами в восемнадцатом столетии, а затем вновь в эпоху романтизма. Почему же последние сто лет был настолько «сухи» по сравнению с ними?
Автор описывает свою встречу с «Экстазом Св. Франциска» Беллини в Собрании Фрика, анализирует эффект, производимый на посетителей часовни Rothko Chapel, разбирает отзывы зрителей о картинах Караваджо, Грёза, Фридриха, Энгра и др. Сотни отзывов людей, разделивших с автором состояние крайней взволнованности перед картинами, становятся объектом исследования об эмоциональной уязвимости и природе искусства.

Maximum Embodiment: Yoga, the Western Painting of Japan, by Bert Winther-Tamaki

By Bert Winther-Tamaki

Greatest Embodiment offers a compelling thesis articulating the old personality of Yoga, actually the “Western painting” of Japan. The time period designates what used to be arguably crucial circulate in sleek eastern artwork from the overdue 19th to the mid-twentieth centuries. maybe the main serious marker of Yoga was once its organization with the medium of oil-on-canvas, which differed enormously from the water-based pigments and inks of previous eastern portray. Yoga encompassed either institution high-quality artwork and avant-gardist insurgencies, yet in either instances, because the time period indicates, it used to be usually interested in innovations, motifs, canons, or iconographies that have been got in Europe and deployed by way of jap artists.

Despite fresh advances in Yoga reviews, very important questions stay unanswered: What particular visuality did the protagonists of Yoga search from Europe and give a contribution to trendy eastern society? What traits of illustration have been so dearly coveted as to stimulate commitment to the pursuit of Yoga? What exotic Yoga in eastern visible tradition? This learn solutions those questions by way of defining a paradigm of embodied illustration detailed to Yoga portray which may be conceptualized in 4 registers: first, the special materiality of oil paint pigments at the photograph floor; moment, the depiction of palpable human our bodies; 3rd, the id of the act and made from portray with a somatic expression of the artist’s actual being; and eventually, rhetorical metaphors of political and social incorporation. The so-called Western painters of Japan have been pushed to reinforce subjectivity via maximizing a eastern experience of embodiment in the course of the technical, aesthetic, and political ability advised by way of those interactive registers of embodiment.

Balancing critique and sympathy for the twelve Yoga painters who're its vital protagonists, greatest Embodiment investigates the search for embodiment in one of the most compelling photos of contemporary eastern paintings. The valiant struggles of artists to garner strongly embodied positions of subjectivity within the 1910s and Thirties gave strategy to despairing makes an attempt at fathoming and mediating the scary studies of genuine existence in the course of and after the conflict within the Forties and Nineteen Fifties. The very homes of Yoga that were so conducive to expressing forceful embodiment now produced frequently grotesque imagery of the destruction of our bodies. Combining acute visible research inside of a resounding conceptual framework, this quantity presents an unique account of ways the force towards greatest embodiment in early twentieth-century Yoga was once derailed by means of an impulse towards greatest disembodiment.
