Looking back through all the daily posts, I must say I’m a little amazed at the body of work, as well as the effort it took to create. What started as an exercise of visual metaphors inspired by Twyla Tharp’s book “The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life,” this time last year, has become a great vehicle for art-direction, inspiration and connection. Along the way, I’ve showcased some of the best and most interesting work from the fields of fashion, beauty, photography, art, architecture and design.

This is only one of the many ways in which to do this. It is the way I decided upon after viewing many prints at galleries and museums.

Landscapes, Classical to Modern Curriculum

The Greeks and Romans created wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the tradition of depicting pure landscapes declined, and the landscape was seen only as a setting for religious and figural scenes. This tradition continued until the 16th century when artists began to view the landscape as a subject in its own right. The artistic shift seems to have corresponded to a growing interest in the natural world sparked by the Renaissance. Rise of the Landscape in the Netherlands The term "landscape" actually derives from the Dutch word landschap, which originally meant "region, tract of land" but acquired the artistic connotation, "a picture depicting scenery on land" in the early 1500s (American Heritage Dictionary, 2000).

Les sables du temps. 10 Top Tips to Help Define Your Personal Photographic Style - Tuts+ Photo & Video Article. Is Photography Art? Art Photographs There are many thousands of important art photographs in public and private collections worldwide and yet the majority were not made with the art exhibition in mind. Some were intended as demonstrations of what the new medium could do; others began life as documents, records or illustrations; only later were they seen as art objects.

Some photographs, such as the study by Eugene Atget (1852-1927) of Parisians viewing an eclipse, find the surreal in the real. Others, including Self-portrait as a Drowned Man (1840) by Hippolyte Bayard (1807-77), play with photography's ability to make fiction appear as fact. As the majority of great photographic images have been accepted as art objects retrospectively, their story cannot be told by reference to movements, schools and coteries.
