Meet KnowRe. Your New Digital Teacher's Aide. Collection search Registration numbers The most common type of Museum number begins with the year of acquisition. The database standardises these numbers in the form, for example: 1887,0708.2427 (year: comma: block of four numbers - usually representing a month and day: full-stop and final number). The final number can be of any length and may be followed by another full-stop and a sub-number. In some of these cases a prefix has been added before a number (e.g. If the number you are entering has come from an old catalogue it could appear in the form 1887-7-8-2427. In the case of some two-dimensional works from Asia and the Middle East a full stop may need to be inserted into the final number. The second most common type of Museum number takes the form of one or two letters followed by two numbers. There are also some special cases including, for example, S.2534 (Sheepshanks collection, in which case the number will fall between 1 and 8000). BM or 'Big' numbers Other numbering systems

About This Site What is art? How does art address the needs of humanity? Why do we create art? Is all art beautiful? Does everyone see art in the same way?

Although website materials are capable of being viewed in any order, it is recommended that you begin with the Elements Of Art. ARTiculation also contains a Timeline and Vocabulary Section to aid you in placing works of art within a historical context and understanding the meaning of art terms that may be new to you. il nudo femminile sdraiato dall’antichità ai nostri giorni (Achille della Ragione) Il prototipo del nudo femminile sdraiato viene generalmente fatto risalire al Giorgione, anche se già nel I secolo d.C. viene realizzata, da un ignoto artista romano, una Venere marina circondata da due amorini su di una parete del peristilio in una casa patrizia di Pompei. Purtroppo una rovinosa eruzione cancellerà dalla memoria degli uomini per circa duemila anni la splendida dea dell’amore ed il suo giovane corpo nudo e ne vieterà la visione. Quando sarà diseppelita gli artisti avranno di nuovo creato quell’immagine poderosa in grado di scuotere il torpore e di accendere la fantasia e da allora non si sono più fermati. fig.00 Ignoto artista romano Venere marina I secolo d.C. Pompei Casa di Venere Il Cinquecento inaugura la spettacolare serie delle Veneri nude con la più sensuale e misteriosa delle creazioni del Giorgione, la Venere dormiente (fig 1) il quale, nel 1509, ci fa dono dell’ immagine immortale di una placida fanciulla che sogna e ci fa sognare.

Once you understand the Alphabet, you'll be able to "read" pictures and other works of visual art and understand why they work the way they do. The Alphabet of Art was developed by the late Robert J. McKnight derived many of the ideas in the Alphabet from Maitland Graves and his book, The Art of Color and Design (McGraw-Hill, 1951). The Alphabet of Art is a service of Guidance Communications, Inc. The Alphabet of Art — A Notation System for Visual Design The visual notation system known as the Alphabet of Art is made up of Elements and Attributes. The seven Elements are the things that the artist or designer works with: Line, Line Direction, Shape, Size, Texture, Value, and Color. The Attributes are defined as the qualities that the art or design conveys to the observer. In any notation system there must be a method of making comparisons.
