A Ritualized Approach To A Series Of Mixed Media Watercolor Paintings, Richard K. Miller Jul 1969

A Ritualized Approach To A Series Of Mixed Media Watercolor Paintings, Richard K. Miller

All Master's Theses

The thesis problem involved the development of a series of watercolor paintings within a ritualistic format; the standardization of approach resulted in the development of a personal iconography. This iconography was secondary to the total work however. The thesis involved the development of a series of paintings with identical preparations and preliminary developmental stages, all of which, at a certain point in development, became totally dependent regarding further work on an intuitive development and a reliance upon epiphanic insights for completion.

The Influence Of The Mixed Media Concept On Contemporary Literature And Music, Joe Kirby Jan 1969

The Influence Of The Mixed Media Concept On Contemporary Literature And Music, Joe Kirby

Honors Theses

Probably the most exciting development in the fields of literature, art, music, and communications in the past twenty years is the mixed-media concept. The idea of using more than one artistic form in conjunction with others to produce a desired effect is not new, but only with the development of our modern electronic technology did this concept come to tremendously influenced the contemporary literary and musical world. More important, however, the development of new and hitherto undreamt of communications and transportation media has had a profound influence upon modern culture and civilization itself.

The French Impressionists, Bill Merrell Jan 1969

The French Impressionists, Bill Merrell

Honors Theses

Impressionism seems to have arisen as a close study of nature and external phenomena. It was at first regarded as a meteor destined to go out, but now the name "impressionist" appears to be an imprecise description of the group of painters who in 1874 held an exhibition and by a penny-a-liner were dubbed Impressionists.

In 1870 they had been more or less independent painters, each going ...

With this short summary of his life and the trials, the problems, and the love, I hope to show how the statement "belief even unto martyrdom" applies to van Gogh. I further will endeavor to prove that Vincent van Gogh was the father of the modern Expressionist movement.
