Spectacular Shadow Portrait from a Sheet

Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita is known for her stunning installations that incorporate the clever use of shadows. Her newest piece is called ‘Veil’, and it is a work of wonder. Veil is a temporary installation at the Villa Como in Italy in the 23th edition of Miniartextil. It is created out of a single piece of cloth, but through simple lighting mastery, it produces a shadowy outline of a woman. The result of simple elements produce this unbelievable outcome.

art history meme. 1/5 movements

the hudson river school » mid-19th century, america
»» albert bierstadt, john william casilear, frederic edwin church, thomas cole, john frederick kensett, thomas moran

The first coherent school of American art, the Hudson River painters, helped to shape the mythos of the American landscape. Beginning with the works of Thomas Cole (1801-1848) and Asher B. Durand (1796-1886) and evolving into the Luminist and late Romantic schools, the Hudson River painters set about to heed Emerson’s call “to ignore the courtly Muses of Europe” and define a distinct vision for American art.

The artists who came to maturity in the years of egalitarian Jacksonian democracy and expansion translated these ideals into an aesthetic that was sweeping and spontaneous. Like the vast nation that lay before them, which they celebrated not chauvinistically but with a sense of awe for its majestic natural resources and a feeling of optimism for the huge potential it held, the Hudson River painters depicted a New World wilderness in which man, minuscule as he was beside the vastness of creation, nevertheless retained that divine spark that completed the circle of harmony.
