Idyllic landscape... or naked body? Artist photographs 'bodyscapes' using miniature figures and nude models

At next take, it’s a breast. That was exactly the intention of psychologist-turned-artist Allan Teger, whose innovative, slightly erotic images of figures on the human body first resemble landscapes. The sensual photos are taken with a film camera and are entirely untouched – what you perceive is what you get. Bridging the gap: The inspiration of the photo series was that people can see things both ways - the body and the landscape Hitting the slopes: Teger used the body's natural curves to his advantage Day on the green: Teger says he likes to use themes from psychology in his photographs The artist, who once taught psychology at Boston University and the University of Pennsylvania, wanted to incorporate the lessons he taught in the classroom in his art.

Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, usually involving imaginative or technical skill.


In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art. This article focuses primarily on the visual arts, which includes the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they usually are not in a painting, for example.

Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style [that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material [and] the requirements of mass production".[2] During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress.

§Etymology[edit] The first use of the term Art Deco has been attributed to architect Le Corbusier, who penned a series of articles in his journal L'Esprit nouveau under the headline "1925 Expo: Arts Déco".

Victor Horta

John Julius Norwich described him as "undoubtedly the key European Art Nouveau architect. " Indeed, Horta is one of the most important names in Art Nouveau architecture; the construction of his Hôtel Tassel in Brussels in 1892-3 means that he is sometimes credited as the first to introduce the style to architecture from the decorative arts. The French architect Hector Guimard was deeply influenced by Horta and further spread the "whiplash" style in France and abroad. Life and career[edit] Born in Ghent, Horta was first attracted to the architectural profession when he helped his uncle on a building site at the age of twelve. When Horta's father died in 1880, he returned to Belgium and moved to Brussels, married his first wife, with whom he later fathered two daughters, and went to study architecture at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts.

The House of Medici (/ˈmɛdɨtʃi/ MED-i-chee; Italian pronunciation: [de ˈmɛːditʃi]) was a political dynasty, banking family and later royal house that first began to gather prominence under Cosimo de' Medici in the Republic of Florence during the late 14th century. The family originated in the Mugello region of the Tuscan countryside, gradually rising until they were able to fund the Medici Bank. The bank was the largest in Europe during the 15th century, seeing the Medici gain political power in Florence — though officially they remained citizens rather than monarchs. Their wealth and influence initially derived from the textile trade guided by the guild of the Arte della Lana.

Like other signore families they dominated their city's government, they were able to bring Florence under their family's power, allowing for an environment where art and humanism could flourish.
