The History of Portraits

The National Portrait Gallery has just turned 20 so we thought it was a good time to find out more about this historical art form and why portraits are still so popular.

ARTY PANTS (Episode 1) - Portraiture

What is a "portrait"? • Watch this video with your students. • Art Vocabulary - Help students to recognize the word "portrait" and to understand its definition. A "portrait" is a picture of a person. • Composition - Assist students in becoming visually aware of the specific way a portrait is framed. In a portrait, a person is typically framed from the waist area all the way up to the top of their head. The most important part of a portrait is a person's face. • Social Relevance - Inspire students to think about the significance of why artists choose to create portraits.

Alexander Calder performs his "Circus" - Whitney Museum

From Oct. 16, 2008 - Feb. 15, 2009, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York presents "Alexander Calder: The Paris Years, 1926-1933" http://www.whitney.org/calder, a new look at the artists early years when his radical innovations included open-air wire sculptures, his beloved and important miniature "Circus", and the creation of a new art form, the mobile. This video excerpts scenes of Calder performing the "Circus" from a 1955 film by Jean Painleve.

Works of Calder

Works of Calder - Graphics Pioneer Herbert Matter's Rarely Seen Film Marks Sculptor Alexander Calder's Birth

Calder: Sculptor of Air

Unique modern artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) revolutionized the art of sculpture with his distinctive modernism, freeing sculpture from its stand and adding movement to the art itself. He rose to fame in the 1930s with his renowned Miniature Circus, but his modernist creativity skyrocketed with his wire sculptures, an invention he dubbed "drawing in space". Contemporary and friend with Duchamp, Miro, and Mondrian, who have greatly influenced his evolution, this genius tinkerer, too often limited to his Mobiles, was fueled by artistic renewal, creating such unexpected shapes as his huge stabile sculptures now exhibited worldwide. In light of the artist's life, this film retraces this unique quest and explores the masterpieces that have marked the history of 20st century art. Please visit http://www.kultur.com/Calder-Sculptor... for more information on this program

Greater Boston Video: Alexander Calder Exhibit At Peabody Essex Museum

I was a kid when Calder became well known to the public in general. something that Calder engendered in kids was a sense of wonder AND the great fun of using his ideas to make one's own mobiles!! we made mobiles from everything: tableware, seashells, twigs, anything that we could get our hands on. I also think this fun of making mobiles was educational. we understood how things moved, how much weight we had to employ to balance the rest of the arrangement.

More Than Mud

More than Mud Coulibaly and Brothers Burkina Faso With subtitles Produced by Natural Light Films To see Ten Thousand Villages products handcrafted by Coulibaly and Brothers, visit: http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/ca... Habibou Coulibaly named his workshop Coulibaly and Brothers because he considers everyone who works there his brother. Coulibaly and Brothers is one of 20 ...workshops that Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Burkina Faso represents. Habibou Coulibaly and his 'brothers' have been making bogolan (mud cloth or 'batik') in the same way hunters in Burkina Faso have for centuries. Hunters used the mud cloth as a way to disguise themselves by changing their sent and among these hunters there were some who added designs. Habibou learned how to do the mud cloth dying process with his grandmother. Mud cloth is created using natural dies including one produced from the leaves of the sycamore tree. The artisans use brushes and stencils to apply the design to the mud cloth. Women, who traditionally weave the cloth, are now beginning to learn how to do the bogolan or mud 'batik' work as well. Today Coulibaly's workshop includes 8 artisans and 25 to 30 more people when they are busy with orders. Habibou states that fair trade provides just pay and is helping to change lives in their community. Their work and income helps to unite them and provides them with a decent living. Because of the work provided by the workshop people now have a mode of transportation where they were before walking by foot. Habibou wants customers to understand that they are not only buying a product but they are also assisting in development. The sales of products provide employment, which eliminates poverty. Habibou wants customers to see the energy and the life of the artisan in their bogolan works of art. "Don't just look at the price of the product but most of all see the image of the artisan." -- Habibou When you purchase a product at Ten Thousand Villages like this mud cloth, you are purchasing more than a beautiful product. Your purchase assists in the development, reduces poverty and takes the image of the artisan into your home.
