When an amateur goes to appreciate oil painting, from which Angle to admire.
What are the aspects of knowledge, such as history, culture, composition, genre, and writing?
I had a long answer to this one, and it's interesting to poke it right here.
How to admire monet's painting?
If you're not interested, here. Because it's popular, let's just say common sense. Is it ok to study the color palette of visual theory?
To break the problem, since it is oil painting, only oil painting.
Why do you say that? Because there is a mistake, it seems that western paintings are oil paintings, but they are not.
For example, the birth of Venus by botticelli, is recognized by the earth.
Why is this painting not a painting? Because it's an egg color. Notice that this painting is a late 15th century painting, and when it's drawn, Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael can get soy sauce. Oil paintings were not fashionable at the time.
What about this picture? Everyone on earth knows, Raphael "the school of Athens"? Well, it's not a painting. It's a wet fresco.
That was the beginning of the sixteenth century. Oh, by the way, when Raphael drew this, Michelangelo was painting the Sistine ceiling.

So, oil paintings are actually not so big in terms of time span, the most important period, almost Europe, from the 16th to the 19th century.
What is this concept? It has been a long time since the exhibition of "spring map" was produced and the painting of dong jushan was painted in the early song dynasty.
Okay, oil painting.

Take a few words of waffle and make a point.
Before the Renaissance, Europe could be divided into north and south. The south is dominated by Italy, with fiorentina, Rome and Venice, and bologna. These groups have basically asked for form, composition, ideal beauty and connotation. Usually for religious and rich people.

The northern school, mainly Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, is basically a color, lifelike, mirror image. In addition to drawing pictures for religion and rich people, the school also drew pictures for small citizens, so it was more grounded.
In the middle, the French rise. From the cardinal richelieu to Louis xiv to Louis xvi, the rich, as long as the north and south, became a unique.
Okay, let's get started.
The grandfather of oil painting is fan Ike brothers. They're northern. Look at this, in the fifteenth century, and it's so beautiful. The reflection of the laminae of the clothes, the small animals all painted to be fluffy. It's all realistic. In this kind of painting, we mainly praise their realistic and detailed sketches. Let's call the Nordic mirror pie.
But then, the southerners looked down on the northerners. Small family gas.
Italy is beautiful and beautiful. Compose your composition. The lines are tender. It's not realistic. It doesn't matter. There are too many Italian schools, and the ferrara, the Romans, the Siena painters, are trivial, and only the main ones.
Well, fiorentina, I think Raphael is best, and his paintings are ideal. We call it the Florentine ideal. Well, Raphael had been working in Rome, so he did the Roman school -- the oxen, and everybody pulled him in. The Roman school was more demure, and Rubens considered the beauty of architecture. I'll just take a look at that. The virgin Mary, for example, is dignified and stable, with the same structure as a pyramid. This is the beauty of structure and form.
This one is a picture of god and form. The overall composition is handsome (notice everyone's shape), the individual form is round and beautiful. The wind of Florence.
