    Self Envisioned Painters of the Baroque

    A portrait is characteristically defined as a representation of a specific individual. A portrait does not merely record someone’s physical features, however, says something about whom they are, suggesting an evocative sense of a person’s presence. The traditions of portraiture in Western culture extend back to antiquity and predominantly to ancient Greek and Roman traditions, where realistic depictions of celebrated men and women appeared in full scale sculptures made of bronze and marble. Following the period known as, the Renaissance, a shift within European culture occurs which would eventually lead to artists challenging formal boundaries and attempting to elicit sensual, emotional, and intellectual reactions from the audience in an extreme display of authority. Due to the sharing of culture, affluence, and philosophy brought upon by the printing press, the Counter-Reformation and Catholic patronage, the Baroque and its late variant, the Rococo, would become the first globalized art form. Within this exhibition, we will take a look at several prominent Baroque and Rococo (16th c. - 19th c.) artists whom have immortalized themselves, in their own way, through self portraiture. And perhaps we can ask ourselves, what is the artist telling me?

    Anatomy of the Ancient Greek as seen through Sculpture

    Sculptures from the ancient Greek periods are highly reflective of their ideals and ability to portray the human anatomy. Over the course of one thousand years a clear progression from rudimentary form towards that of proportionate precision can be seen. Though many of these great sculptures were once rich in color and pristine in condition, these sculptures have endured an incredible amount of wear and tear. War, and the transitioning of major cultures has reduced many Classical sculptures into particles of their former selves. In this exhibition, one may examine several exciting and bold relics of the ancient Greek through the Minoan Age (2000-1400 BCE) and lastly into the Hellenistic Period (336 – 146 BCE).
