Art Periods and Movements Periods and Movements A movement is a style or technique followed by a group of artists who share common goals and beliefs. Movements are confined to a specific period of time, anywhere from a few months to several years, and can be visual, architectural, or literary. THE MUSIC LESSON by Johannes Vermeer Comparing the girl with her reflection we can notice that the back of her head, directly seen, is more conventionally perceived, more recognizable, perhaps more touching, her reflected face, its detail dissolved, its humanity suspended in light, has a deeper kind of completeness. The face is reflected not only in the mirror but also in the painter's temperament. For the first time we have the sense that he has a use, however oblique, for the whole of human appearance.

on Mirrors Ancient and primitive mirrors were typically made of polished stone (obsidian in Stone Age Turkey, and jet in Pre-Columbian Peru), perhaps wetted to make them more reflective, and then metal (copper, bronze, silver, tin, etc.) In the 16th century, Venetian and French glassmakers developed a process in which transparent glass is coated with mercury (to the back side). Processes using an alloy of silver are most often used in manufacturing contemporary mirrors, but several materials — a number of metallic, ceramic,

Siamo talmente convinti che non esistano più eroi, che ci rendiamo conto del contrario solo quando ne scompare uno. Conceptual Art First published Thu Jun 7, 2007 The philosophy of art has confronted myriad issues relating to an equally diverse subject matter. From primeval painting to postmodern poetry, and from the problem of how music can convey emotion to that of nature of the existence of fictional characters, the whole spectrum of artistic activity has been considered by philosophers of art, and the questions they have sought to answer extend far into neighbouring philosophical realms and beyond. To date, however, philosophical interest in what may broadly-speaking be called conceptual art has been notably sparse. And this seems surprising. After all, both philosophy and the diverse kinds and styles of art and art-making that fall under the conceptual tradition all have one thing in common: they are both intended to make you think.

La vasca di Damien Hirst alla Fondazione Prada Lo scorso 9 maggio ha aperto a Milano la Fondazione Prada, un’istituzione dedicata a arte e cultura che si presenta come un complesso molto grande di edifici preesistenti – che un tempo appartenevano a una distilleria – e di nuove costruzioni. Le strutture, vecchie o nuove, sono state adibite a spazi espositivi di opere d’arte contemporanea, e uno di questi ospita un’opera particolare: l’installazione di una vasca cubica piena di pesci, con dentro anche oggetti “femminili” e con uno strano lettino ambulatoriale. L’opera si chiama Lost Love, è di Damien Hirst ed è del 2000. Lost Love è costituita da una vasca di vetro di forma cubica su cui è stato installato l’impianto di acquario.
