This week should prove to be quite interesting as we investigate the intersection of fine art and
technology for the first time!
So, in the history of Art, we go from the highly dramatic overblown
images of the Baroque era, such as we have been looking at recently with Rubens, to the end of
the Enlightenment era in which a greater variety in painting styles develops.
With the invention of
the camera coming at roughly the same time as we see Realism and Impressionism gaining
popularity, can anyone discuss what the relationship between them may be?
Do you think
photography and painting would have been in competition, or would they have complimented one
Explain your thoughts...
