Nineteenth-century author Jacob Grimm, along with his brother Wilhelm, produced some of the most widely read stories and influential tales in the history of literature.

Social realism Social Realism, an international art movement, refers to the work of painters, printmakers, photographers and filmmakers who draw attention to the everyday conditions of the working classes and the poor, and who are critical of the social structures that maintain these conditions. While the movement's artistic styles vary from nation to nation, it almost always utilizes a form of descriptive or critical realism.[1] Social Realism should not to be confused with Socialist Realism, the official Soviet art form that was institutionalized by Joseph Stalin in 1934 and was later adopted by allied Communist parties worldwide.[1] Origins[edit] 34 Digital Painting and Drawing Tutorials Nowadays, lots of great Photoshop tutorials appear on the web each week. However, lately I’ve noticed a real decline in the amount of tutorials teaching digital painting and drawing. This is most likely because these tutorials are often more intricate and time consuming to produce. However, any great designer should at least explore the wealth of techniques involved with digital painting.

The war over "Wolf of Wall Street" Here we are again: How does Martin Scorsese feel about Jordan Belfort, the debauched penny-stock tycoon played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who never quite receives his just deserts in “The Wolf of Wall Street”? How did Vladimir Nabokov feel about Humbert Humbert, the pedophile narrator of his most famous novel? How does Brian DePalma feel about Al Pacino’s Tony Montana (“Say chhh-ello to my leetle frien’”) in “Scarface”? For that matter, how did Howard Hawks feel about Paul Muni’s Tony Camonte in the original 1932 “Scarface,” which had to be released with a didactic prologue, a capital-punishment ending and an interpolated scene in which a group of newspapermen sit around talking about how bad the bad guys are? (I’m deeply sorry for issuing a spoiler on a movie made 80 years ago.) Oh, and while we’re on the subject, how do Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal feel about extraordinary rendition and torture?

Paper Mache Recipes This page contains recipes for several kinds of home-made paper mache paste, and home-made gesso recipes for finishing your sculptures. I have been messing around with paper mache for over 50 years and up until a few months ago I always came back to the easiest paper mache recipes, using plain old white flour and water paste with torn strips of newspaper. Now, however, I have abandoned the traditional layered paper process and use my new paper mache clay recipe and/or the even newer silky-smooth air-dry clay recipe for most my sculptures. However, for younger artists or for those who really don’t want to make the trip to the hardware store, these following recipes work just fine, and most of the tutorials on this site would work using these traditional paper mache recipes.

Proper shading is important in drawing realistically. Good shading textures and tonal flow can add a lot to a drawing. Adrock deleted scenes from Propellerhead interview To hear Adam Horovitz describe his first experiences with beat-making you'd almost think it sounds easy. "I didn't know that was something I could do," he says almost dismissively. "And I did. And I got into it" But under his moniker "Adrock" and along with the other two Beastie Boys, Mike D and MCA, Adam didn't just make beats... he helped invent a whole new style of beat collage and layered production that inspired a generation of artists that would follow them.

The ABC of Art Criticism: Some Recent How To’s It has often been said that writing about art is like dancing about architecture. Nearly as often, it has also then been said: But I’m going to do it anyway. Whether or not the dance analogy captures all the futilities and elations of the endeavor, writing about art, experience proves, is an activity unlikely to abate. Indeed, as art’s institutional and popular reach has grown ever more expansive in the early 21st century, the proliferation of adjunct written discourses has perhaps never been greater.

elements of art My previous post gave you a preview of a project for my Studio students. Here I am going to share a bit more how I am going to work to incorporate some Common Core into this unit, as well as more details of what I hope to accomplish with this unit.

‘The Great Beauty' movie review: Finding deep meaning in superficial extravagance The writer in that opening scene, Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo), could almost be an older version of the Marcello Mastroianni character in “La Dolce Vita.” Having published one very successful novel 40 years ago, Jep became “King of the High Life” and never penned another, instead doing just enough journalistic work to keep him in contact with everyone worth knowing in the city. That terrace by the Coliseum is part of his bachelor pad, where he recuperates after all-night revelry and hosts parties large and small.
