Neo-Classical & Academic Art Screensaver - 700 Paintings by over 100 Artists in One Screensaver Long Description:
NeoClassicism, of the mid 1700s through the mid 1800s, was the artistic component of the intellectual movement known as the Age of Enlightenment . It was an art of an ideal, familiar with it's own canon, but did not repeat it in lifeless reproductions. Rather, with ever deepening technical expertise, these artists synthesized the traditions anew in each work, applying it to fresh interpretations of often ancient archetypes. Neoclassicism seems to be a natural recurring expression of many cultures at certain moments in their development, confident of their own rich traditions. Academic Art, which gained great popularity during the mid to late 1800s, refers to the work influenced by the standards of the French Académie des Beaux Arts, from which this movement derived it's name, in the attempt to synthesize together both the styles of the preceding, and sometimes conflicting, Neoclassicism and Romanticism movements. A battle of styles known as the Poussiniste Rubiniste debate had been long standing as to whether line and form should dominate art due to their appeal to the intellect, or that spirited application techniques and more importantly color should dominate because of their appeal to emotion. Both NeoClassicism and Academic Art considered already existing idealized mythological, literary, religious, and allegorical subjects as fertile soil, and it assimilated the philosophical idea that history itself could be considered as a collection of allegorical plays, a dialect of competing ideas which had eventually resolved in a synthesis. Artists in this collection include Jaques Louis David, Jean Ingres, Francois Gerard, Anne Girodet Trioson, Pierre Guerin, Jean Leon Gerome, Pierre Prudhon, Edwin Weeks, Albert Moore, Lawrence Alma Tadema, Lord Frederick Leighton, John William Godward, William Bouguereau, James Tissot, Alexandre Cabanel , and many more.
