This paper seeks to analyze and look into artistic drawing and the artist. It also seeks to analyze the style, characters and themes that are used in the particular drawing and painting.
The allegoric landscape is a side show, which features silhouetted figures that are completive in nature in the darkness of the night reflected on the skies, in ruins, barren land, barren trees and morning mist. The contemplative nature is not only a unique artistic work, but stands out in the dullest places, which involve anti classic and symbolic works of art. These artistic works can be used to bring out or convey the emotional responses or subjective outlook to a very bare and natural world. Such paintings have characteristics of human presence, which losses its perspective, when expansive landscapes are used. The key innovation in the theme of landscape is to potray and visualizes landscape in a very different and unique manner. The artist could not only explore, but also enjoy the perfect bliss and beauty of the artistic view. This theme is an art instrument that can be used to transform artistic landscape from an emotive subject or outlook. As a viewer who is placing himself in such a position, one can realize and perceive the potential and experience of nature whether bright or bleak (Vaughan, 2004).
Great painting art is not what is real, but that which is termed as unreal. True art is also painting that not what is seen on the outside, but that which is seen in the inside. Such elements include; storms, rain, mist, forests, expansive skies among many others. Other artistic works feature a coffin being carried over an open grave (The Abbey in the Oakland, 1808). The landscape theme is also consists of dusk and dawn, which bring out unique features in the art work.
This is a general question, which has been asked by many people from different parts of the world. Real and effective art should always carry the uniqueness and nature of art regardless of the settings or changes in the settings. This simply means that, in a different setting the artist would have to introduce other themes such as character and context. In this way, the artist will be able to express the continuity of the tragedy of landscape to the audience. Thus, the use of realistic and conventional features would add a backdrop to the artistic work. It is important to note, that the tragedy is an element that is used in both the real world and in fiction. Different settings would serve as a better potential for the exploration of fiction in the context of the same (Frederick, 1984). This simply means that the artist could not only develop meaningful settings, but also represent the functions, which are necessary for the plot in a question or an artistic work. Additionally, physical features such as mountains, hills among many others help to create a realistic landscape in a different setting. As an artist it is important to consider the outline of narrative settings, obvious settings and actual settings.
Settings can be moved to the present day. Such settings would require a lot of researching, studying and imagination. This would mean reverting to the initial or historic time frame. However, the artistic work would have to contain probable and logical work instead of pure art from the landscape. The style and language would have to change. This is because the language and style form the epic time that would not probably fit into a modern setting. The other prospective that would have to change, is the theme of the artwork. In the modern setting the context, ideas and nature of evidence differ from the context from the epic times. These concepts may include; landscape designs, classicism, physics, history, mathematics among many others. It is also important to note that the reception of the work would also drastically change (Cormen, 1999, p. 977). The modern world would receive epic artworks with mixed feelings as opposed to the audience in the epic time frame.
The point of this work was to create a unique artwork that would relate to human feelings and emotions. In most of the tragedy of landscape paintings, a simple view of the painting is felt and transformed to human sensation. Human sensation is a priceless feeling that can only be brought out or achieved through real and unique artwork. The other point of the work is to achieve or bring out an appeal of the artist`s authority and allow the viewer and the audience to recognize the ongoing life plus the preoccupation and unconcern that filters this life. It shows a very different world of unconcern and indifference that is usually assumed not to exist, but it does exist in the inside of humans. The point of this work was also to amplify and simplify tension on a cross road, where rhetorical emphasis and tension meet. The artist tries to talk about the indifference that exists in every human being. He also tries to explain the cross roads and the conflict between the rhetorical emphasis and the tension that exists in the same. This natural phenomenon exists in the inside. One look at the painting brings an emotional discourse that only proves that human nature can be compared to ‘’ the tragic of landscape’’.
David Danges was the artist who invented and discovered‘’ the tragedy of the landscape’’. He grew up at the period, when there were a very disturbing disillusionment and development in such materialistic society (Vaughan, 2004 p. 295). However, David died in obscurity and his works were not recognized. Casper David rediscovered dAngeles work and added firmness, neatness and diligence in to the work. The question is: why the artist chooses the places, people and work. Well, the artist chose these attributes, because they added firmness, diligence and neatness to the already discovered and invented artistic work form the epic times. This helped to bring out the uniqueness and the dramatic effects of the work. These interventions did not only visualize sublime and the landscape in an entirely different way, but also allowed the viewer to experience firsthand nature and the sublime potential in it, and thus, reunite the viewer’s spiritual self via nature contemplation. However, all artists should match their personality introspective scrutiny with their natural observation. In this way, they will have a better concept of the expectations of the viewer in context to the artwork. Loneliness and death were evident in this artwork (Cormen, 1999). As a viewer looks at the drawings, they feel an acute loneliness or a sense of it. The author suffered depressive seasons, which were reflected in his work. These depressive seasons pushed the artist to include thematic shifts such as death symbols among many others. However, the artist managed to leave legacy. He influenced many other painters and his work, style and language will be remembered by the present and future generations.
The paper has discussed and analyzed the tragedy of landscape. It has not only analyzed the story behind the work, but has also analyzed and discussed the point of the work and the work in a different setting.
