The Art of Sculpture

Mary Ann Sures

Presented at: OCON 2003

Date: Jul 05, 2003

In these lectures, Mrs. Sures presents the application of Objectivist esthetics to the art of sculpture.

Part I includes a brief review of the basic principles of Objectivist esthetics as applied to the visual arts; the definition and distinctive nature of sculpture; the role of the human figure; how abstract values are conveyed in the medium: subject, theme and style in sculpture. Throughout the lecture, points made will be illustrated with examples drawn from the history of art.

Part II is a survey and comparison of selected works of Michelangelo, Bernini and Houdon, seen in the context of their respective historical periods: the Renaissance, the Baroque and the Enlightenment.
