FINE ART

TEXTBOOK The Humanities Through the Arts Author: Lee A Jacobus & F. David Martin Publisher: McGraw Hill, Edition: 11th Edition

After reading chapter 2, What is a Work of Art? discuss the following:

Browse through your whole textbook and look at the pictures of paintings. Limit your response to only paintings that are pictured in your textbook. Choose two pictures: one that represents one of your favorite panting, and another that represents one of your least favorite paintings in the textbook.

For this Discussion Board, you will indicate the pictures you have selected and answer the discussion questions based on your choices. Number each of your discussion answers 1 – 4 for your Favorite and 1- 4 for your Least Favorite. Post pictures of your two paintings if possible; if not, post the web links to the paintings you have chosen.

FAVORITE PAINTING

  1. Name your favorite painting from the textbook, the artist, and provide the page number and figure number.
  2. What is it about this painting that attracts you? Is it beautiful, interesting, makes you curious, reminds you of something? Describe what physical observations led you to choose it as your favorite?
  3. What value is communicated through this work of art? What does it say and mean? Is this a value that you ascribe to personally? How?
  4. Is this art? Why or why not? When answering this question, use the “Perception” method for identifying art, rather than the simpler “Conception” method.

LEAST FAVORITE PAINTING

  1. Name your least favorite painting from the textbook, the artist, and provide the page number and figure number.
  2. What is it about this work that repels you? Is it ugly, appears incomplete, or simply uninteresting? Discuss what physical observations led you choose it as your least favorite?
  3. What value (if any) is communicated through this work of art? What does it say and mean? Is this a value that you agree with, or does it offend you? How?
  4. Is this art? Why or why not? When answering this question, use the “Perception” method for identifying art, rather than the simpler “Conception” method.

SECTION 2

After reading chapter 8, Theater, number your discussion topics below 1, 2 and 3 as you answer …

Musical Theater is the focus of our text on pages 216-218 and is also covered in the online lecture 10/Musical Theater material. Carefully read about the contribution of the musical to Theater as a performance genre. Then focus on the information about the musical, Hamilton. After studying the material, respond to the journal prompts. Be sure to number your responses appropriately (1, 2, 3, etc…)

1. Where did the art form of Musical Theatre develop? What are its background influences?

2. Why/How is the musical Hamilton different from other Broadway musicals?

3. Have you seen Hamilton or another musical, either in person or via online viewing? If so, please share its title and where you saw the musical. Do you think that viewing a musical live, rather than on-screen, made or could make a difference in your participation with the work?

4. The elements of drama (remember Aristotle?) are all well developed in musical theater. Pick one element, such as music, spectacle, thought, or character, and give examples of how the director’s choices made that element impactful to the overall performance.  How did the director’s choices cause you to participate more deeply with the performance?
