Editor's Page ‌.. Hello Readers ! The lighting, whether natural, artificial, or a combination of the two, has a profound effect on the atmosphere of the room. Lighting is taken into account when a color scheme is being determined. The cool colors (blue, green, gray) and the warm colors (red, yellow, orange, brown), the strong dramatic colors (red, brown, purple, black), and the less prominent colors (beige, pink) can contribute a great deal to the feeling created by a room. Certain colors have the effect of enlarging a space (white and the cool, light colors); others, of diminishing it (black and the warm, dark colors). Certain colors blend unobtrusively with other colors; the same colors in differing intensity or shades can become Supreme Home Therapy

Indian Folk Painting : Bani Thani Kishangarh painting emerged as a distinctive style in the middle of 18th century under the patronage of Maharaja Sawant Singh. Nihal Chand, a gifted artist in the Maharaja's court, produced some highly individualistic Radha and sophisticated works. The chief characteristics of the Kishengarh paintings were the elongation of human faces, lavish use of green and depiction of panoramic landscapes. Portrayal of Radha and Krishna in elongated faces is a common subject of Kishangarh paintings. The elongated neck, the long stylised eyes with drooping eyelids, the thin Supreme Home Therapy

lips and pointed chin of Radha standing in a graceful pose with her head covered with a muslin odhni, is undoubtedly the most striking creation of the Kishangarh school. This style continued into the 19th century and a series of paintings of the Gita Govinda were produced in 1820.

Bani Thani The most famous Kishangarh painting is called Bani Thani. The Indian government has engraved it on one of its postal stamps. The Bani Thani style of painting got its name from a story with a twist of romance to it. In the Kishangarh court during the 18th century there ruled a poet-king called Raja Samant Singh (1699–1764) who had eyes only for Bani Thani, a court singer and poet. Bani Thani’s eyes were what drew Samant Singh to her, and so did her singing. Seeing Bani Thani singing in his court each day helped the king’s heart grow fonder. Now Samant Singh wrote poetry under the name of Nagari Das, and since Bani Thani was a poet in her own right too, love was not far behind.

Bani Thani has been labeled as India's "Mona Lisa".

Hindu Sculpture Hindu sculpture were developed during the Gupta period. Reliefs were carved in rock-cut sanctuaries in Udayagiri, Madhya Pradesh (400600), and adorned temples at Garhwa, near Allahābād, and Deogarh. From the 7th to the 9th century a number of schools flourished. They include the highly architectural style of the Pallavas, exemplified by the work at Kānchipuram, Tamil Nādu; the Rastrakuta style, of which the best-preserved examples are a colossal temple relief and the three-headed bust of Shiva at Elephanta, near Mumbai (formerly Bombay); and the Kashmīr style, which shows some Greco-Buddhist influence in the remains at Vijrabror, and more indigenous forms in figures of Hindu gods found at Vantipor.From the 9th century to the consolidation of Muslim Supreme Home Therapy

power at the beginning of the 13th century, Indian sculpture increasingly tended toward the linear, the forms appearing to be sharply outlined rather than voluminous. More so than previously, sculpture was applied as a decoration, subordinate to its architectural setting. It was intricate and elaborate in detail and was characterized by complicated, many-armed figures drawn from the pantheon of Hindu and Jain gods, which replaced the earlier simple figures of Buddhist gods. Emphasis on technical virtuosity also added to the multiplication of involved forms. At this time the three distinct areas of production in sculpture were (1) the north and east, (2) Rajputana (now part of Gujarāt, Madhya Pradesh, and Rājasthān states), and (3) the south-central and western regions. In the north and east, one of the main schools was centered in Bihār and Bengal under the Pala dynasty from 750 to 1200. A notable source for sculpture was the monastery and university at Nalanda in Bihār. Black slate was a common medium, and the themes, at first still Buddhist, gradually became more and more Hindu. Another northeastern school, in Orissa, produced typically Hindu work, including the monumental elephants and horses and erotic friezes at the Sun Temple in Konarak. In Rajputana the local style was exemplified in the hard sandstone temple of Khajurāho, which was literally covered with Hindu sculptures. Supreme Home Therapy

The south-central and western schools produced notable works at Mysore, Halebid, and Belur. The temples were embellished with friezes, pillars, and brackets carved in fine-grained dark stone. After the Muslims became dominant, they adopted many of the native patterns as ornament. The traditions have persisted until the present day, especially in the south, where art retains its indigenous purity.

Ideas for Your Apartment : Part - II Living in a small space is tough, especially when your decorating options are limited by rental rules and landlord laws. Let these ideas inspire you to make the home (and space) you want. - Turn your TV wall into a focal point. Hang

paneled artwork behind the TV to frame it, and surround the TV with plenty of storage. This TV could have been placed on the console beneath it, but to maximize space and functionality in an apartment rental, take your TV to the wall and place a console beneath it that can be used as a Supreme Home Therapy

serving surface when entertaining. Plus, having a piece of furniture beneath a wall-mount TV grounds it and prevents it from seeming as if there's a random black object floating on the wall. - Finding nonpermanent ways to update your apartment is key to making a rental feel like home. You might want to switch out your sink, but your rental agreement makes it a no-go. Instead, modify it to suit your tastes. Hang a skirt around an open sink, using adhesive-backed hook-and-loop tape to hide unsightly plumbing. Hide baskets or a low shelving unit of bathroom essentials behind the skirt. - A cramped dining nook can become worthy of dinner parties with a few smart strategies. Use clear chairs or a glass-top table to visually expand the space and make it feel bigger, hang up some artwork, and adjust the lighting. Install wall-mount sconces that don't need to be hardwired, or place lamps on a narrow console. If your dining area came with a chandelier, see if you can

cover the bare bulbs with shades, which will diffuse the light, softening the room's glow. - Picture your apartment's living space without any furniture to help you think beyond your current furniture arrangement. Decide if the room is large enough to divide up in to zones that will make the space more functional. Then get creative with how you start to arrange furniture. It might make the most sense to "float" the sofa in the middle of the room and place your TV on the wall facing it. You can then use the space on the other side of the sofa for an office or dining area. Place a console behind the couch to use for storage to serve both zones. - Use colorful garden stools as impromptu coffee tables or as bedside tables. These relatively lightweight furniture pieces can easily be moved from room to room and are much easier to carry up apartment stairs than a bulky table.

- Turn awkward apartment features in your favor. Tap odd corners or narrow closets for storage or a cozy seating area for one. In this living room, two narrow nooks provide storage for office and crafts supplies, and curtains can be drawn to conceal the spaces. - Bring furniture into your bathroom and you'll be adding plenty of function. A slender table with a drawer can be used for storage and a sturdy chair can become a perch for clean towels. - Introduce a rental to luxury with gorgeous drapes. Hanging several sets of drapes along a wall is an apartment-approved way to give your walls personality without the permanency of wallpaper or paint. It also gives the illusion that there are windows hidden behind the drapes, rather than just an expanse of blank walls and one tiny window. - A daybed can be a couch by day and a guest bed by night. Plumped up with plenty of pillows for back support, you can sink comfortably on to a daybed to watch TV or read a book. But when overnight guests come, they'll have a Supreme Home Therapy

comfortable place to sleep. Keep a large basket nearby for extra linens to make the transition from couch to bed easy.

Art criticism

Criticism and the psychology of art, although independent disciplines, are related to aesthetics. The psychology of art is concerned with such elements of the arts as human responses to color, sound, line, form, and words and with the ways in which the emotions condition such responses. Criticism confines itself to Supreme Home Therapy

Page 21

particular works of art, analyzing their structures, meanings, and problems, comparing them with other works, and evaluating them. Before go further , lets understand the meaning of criticism first .

Criticism means : 1. act of criticizing: a spoken or written opinion or judgment of what is wrong or bad about somebody or something 2. disapproval: spoken or written opinions that point out one or more faults of somebody or something 3. assessment of creative work: considered judgment of or discussion about the qualities of something, especially a creative work.

Artists have often had an uneasy relationship with their critics. Artists usually need positive opinions from critics for their work to be viewed and purchased; unfortunately for the artists, only later generations may understand it. Supreme Home Therapy

History Although critiques of art may have its origins in the origins of art itself, art criticism as a genre is credited to have acquired its modern form by the 18th century. The first writer to acquire an individual reputation as an art critic in 18th C. France was La Font de Saint -Yenne who wrote about the Salon of 1737 and wrote primarily to entertain while including anti-monarchist rhetoric in his prose. The 18th C. French writer Denis Diderot is usually credited with the invention of the modern medium of art criticism. Diderot's "The Salon of 1765" was one of the first real attempts to capture art in words. According to art historian Thomas E. Crow , "When Diderot took up art criticism it was on the heels of the first generation of professional writers who made it their business to offer descriptions and judgments of contemporary painting and sculpture. The demand for such commentary was a product of the similarly novel institution of regular, free, public exhibitions of the latest art." A dominating figure in 19th century art criticism was French poet Charles Baudelaire, whose first published work was his art review Salon of 1845, which attracted immediate attention for its boldness. Many of his critical opinions were novel in their time, including his championing of Eugene Delacroix and Gustava Courbet . When Supreme Home Therapy

Edouard Manet's famous Olympia(1865), a portrait of a nude courtesan, provoked a scandal for its blatant realism, Baudelaire worked privately to support his friend. Today Art critics today work not only in print media-in specialist art magazines as well as newspapers, but also on the internet, on TV and on radio, and in museums and galleries. Many are also employed in universities or as art educators for museums. Art critics curate exhibitions and are frequently employed to write exhibition catalogues. Art critics have their own organisation, a UNESCO non-governmental organisation, called the International Association of Art Critics which has around 76 national sections and a political non-aligned section for refugees and exiles . Art Blogs Since in the early 21st century, online art critical websites and art blogs have cropped up around the world to add their voices to the art world. Some notable art blogs and art blog writers who have focused on art criticism include Art fag city , Art Critical, Neoteric Art, James Wagner, Fallon and Rosof, CultureGrrl, Edward Winkleman's blog, Sharon Butler's Two Coats of Paint, The James Kalm Report, Sharkforum blog, Wooster Collective blog, Brian Sherwin's writing on Myartspace and FineArtViews, Hrag Supreme Home Therapy
