Akhenaten (pronounced /ˌɑːkəˈnɑːtən/; often also spelled Echnaton, Akhnaton, or rarely Ikhnaton; meaning Living spirit of Aten) was known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV (sometimes given its Greek form, Amenophis IV, and meaning Amun is Satisfied), a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, ruled for 17 years and died in 1336 BC or 1334 BC. He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Aten, which is sometimes described as monotheistic or henotheistic. An early inscription likens him to the sun as compared to stars, and later official language avoids calling the Aten a god, giving the solar deity a status above mere gods.
Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted. After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the Eighteenth Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as "the enemy" in archival records.
He was all but lost from history until the discovery, in the 19th century, of Amarna, the site of Akhetaten, the city he built for the Aten. Early excavations at Amarna by Flinders Petrie sparked interest in the enigmatic pharaoh, which increased with the discovery in the Valley of the Kings, at Luxor, of the tomb of King Tutankhamun, who has been proved to be Akhenaten's son according to DNA testing in 2010 by Zahi Hawass of Cairo. Akhenaten remains an interesting figure, as does his Queen, Nefertiti. Their modern interest comes partly from his connection with Tutankhamun, partly from the unique style and high quality of the pictorial arts he patronized, and partly from ongoing interest in the religion he attempted to establish.
Neferjeperura Amenhotep,[ más conocido como Ajenatón,Akhenatón o Akenatón,[fue el décimo faraón de la dinastía XVIII de Egipto. Su reinado está datado en torno a 1353-1336 a. C. y pertenece al periodo denominado Imperio Nuevo de Egipto. Hacia el cuarto año de su reinado, cambió su nombre a Neferjeperura Ajenatón.
Dentro de la historia del Antiguo Egipto, su reinado inicia el denominado Período de Amarna,debido al nombre árabe actual del lugar elegido para fundar la nueva capital: la ciudad de Ajetatón, esto es, «Horizonte de Atón».
Es célebre por haber impulsado transformaciones radicales en la sociedad egipcia, al convertir al dios Atón en la única deidad del culto oficial del Estado, en perjuicio del, hasta el momento, predominante: el culto a Amón. Dichos cambios se desarrollarían a lo largo de varios reinados después del suyo y se detendrían con el fin de la dinastía. Es el primer reformador religioso del que se tiene registro histórico. Con todo, su reinado no sólo implicó cambios en el ámbito religioso, sino también reformas políticas y artísticas.
Aunque tardíamente descubierto y todavía poco conocido, está considerado por muchos historiadores, arqueólogos y escritores, como uno de los faraones más interesantes .
Lo empece a pintar antes de la revuelta de Egipto, el fue siempre mi faraon preferido, desde aqui deseo al pueblo egipcio paz, democracia, libertad, respeto, amor, comprension y que todo llegue a buen fin, gracias a todos por compartir!!!
The process of oil painting varies from artist to artist, but often includes certain steps. First, the artist prepares the surface. Although surfaces like linoleum, wooden panel, paper, slate, pressed wood, and cardboard have been used, the most popular surface since the 16th century has been canvas, although many artists used panel through the 17th century and beyond. Panel is more expensive, heavier, harder to transport, and prone to warp or split in poor conditions. For fine detail, however, the absolute solidity of a wooden panel gives an advantage.The artist might sketch an outline of their subject prior to applying pigment to the surface. "Pigment" may be any number of natural substances with color, such as sulphur for yellow or cobalt for blue. The pigment is mixed with oil, usually linseed oil but other oils may be used as well. The various oils dry differently, creating assorted effects.
The paint tube was invented in 1841 and artists were liberated from the studio. Artists no longer needed to grind each pigment by hand and carefully mix the binding oil in the proper proportions. Paints were made in bulk and sold in tin tubes with a cap. The cap could be replaced and the paints preserved for future use. The manufactured paints had a balanced consistency that the artist could thin with turpentine if he chose. No longer bound to the studio, they could work outside in direct sunlight, misty fog, at dawn or twilight.
Paint in tubes also changed the way artists applied paint to the canvas. Painting became much more spontaneous. Artists were no longer obliged to paint in careful layers of thinned pigments and varnish, although they could use that time-tested method if they chose. With paint in tubes, a greater variety of techniques could be employed, such as blending the paint on the canvas and painting directly on the raw, ungessoed surface. The effect of paint in tubes was so important that it contributed to the rise of the impressionist style. The artist Renoir said, “Without tubes of paint, there would have been no impressionism.” Thanks to the mobility that paint in tubes provided, artists could capture the light of a fleeting moment of the day, and the impressions that it provided.
Many modern paint in tubes manufactures have extensive color testing done. The results of this test will tell the artist which paint will last the longest without the colors altering after a period of time. This is important to pay attention to when selecting oil or acrylic paints.
A painting is a artistic design or picture in paint to bring artistic effects and expressions. Painted renditions of objects, events, individuals, emotions, and virtues have been created by human beings since the very beginnings of recorded history. The various styles of painted representation that have emerged throughout the duration of mankind have served to both inspire and influence the various human cultures from which these styles are borne. The individuals responsible for the creation of the works of art that ultimately serve as tools and vehicles for human stimulation are known as artists.
Although some of the books listed above attempt a global approach, they are universally strong in western art history. The books use representative examples from each era in order to create a story that blends changing styles with social history. The Western narrative begins with prehistoric art such as Stonehenge, before discussing the ancient world. The latter begins with Mesopotamia, then progresses to the art of Ancient Egypt, which then transitions to Classical antiquity. Classical art includes both Greek and Roman work. With the decline of the Roman Empire, the narrative shifts to Medieval art, which lasted for a millennium. The high intellectual culture of the Medieval period was Islamic, but the era also included Early Christian art, Byzantine art, Gothic art, Anglo-Saxon art, and Viking art. The Medieval era ended with the Renaissance, followed by the Baroque and Rococo. Sometimes another period, Mannerism, is inserted between Renaissance and Baroque, which is a visual hybrid. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries included Neoclassicism, Romantic art, Academic art, and Realism in art. Art historians disagree when Modern art began, but it was either in the mid-eighteenth century with the artist Francisco Goya, the mid-nineteenth century with the industrial revolution or the late nineteenth century with the advent of Impressionism. The art movements of the late nineteenth through the early twenty first centuries are too numerous to detail here, but can be broadly divided into two categories: Modernism and Contemporary art. The latter is sometimes referred to with another term, which has a subtly different connotation, Postmodern art.
Although textbooks periodize Western art by movements, as described above, they also do so by century. Many art historians give a nod to the historical importance of Italian Renaissance and Baroque art by referring to centuries in which it was prominent with foreign terms. These include trecento for the fourteenth, quattrocento for the fifteenth, cinquecento for the sixteenth, seicento for the seventeenth, and settecento for the eighteenth.
The history of art usually refers to the history of the visual arts of painting, sculpture and architecture . It is the history of one of the fine arts, others of which are the performing arts and literature. It is also one of the humanities. The term sometimes encompasses theory of the visual arts, including aesthetics.Considered encyclopedically, the history of art is an attempt to survey art throughout human history, classifying cultures and periods by their distinguishing features. This is undertaken by people and institutions with diverging goals, but whose efforts interrelate, including: academic art historians, museum curators, auction house personnel, private collectors, and religious adherents. Given these agendas, it is unsurprising that there are many ways of structuring a history of art, as will be outlined below.
