Unlike the preconceived image of an omniscient heart monitor counting the moments between life and death, all is quiet. My grandmother is curling in on herself slowly with each passing hour. Her heavy folded lids twitch while her soft dark hands paw at her face, and I am reminded of a fetus moments before entering the world, unaware of its surroundings and even its own self. When I entered the room I called her name, apprehensive of even touching her. Last night, before the ambulances came, she did not recognize my mother, her own child. She screamed and pushed my mom away, frantic in the moment of not knowing, and then somewhere between her old couch to this hospital gurney she no longer responded to us. I am terrified of putting my hand on her shoulder, but I finally do. There is nothing here. Sitting on the chair in the corner, I am acutely aware that this will be my final moment with my grandmother. The only other death that had touched my sheltered life was a childhood friend.

Benjamin West was an American-born painter of historical, religious, and mythological subjects who had a profound influence on the development of historical painting in Britain. One of the first American artists to win a wide reputation in Europe, Benjamin West exerted considerable influence on the development of art in the United States through such young American painters as Gilbert Stuart , Charles Willson Peale, and John Singleton Copley.

Any Bindenschild that is stamped in blue underglaze or overglaze and has perfect symmetry and shape is not a Vienna Porcelain mark. If inscriptions, signatures or letters are arranged in such a way that the mark appears as a beehive, then it is not a Vienna Porcelain mark of the Vienna manufactory. Any impressed numbers, except molders and turners , and year numbers from are indications of a forgery. Letters, words or shapes in gold overglaze are indications of forgeries.

Overview[ edit ] Any piece of art is in theory capable of being analysed in terms of style; neither periods nor artists can avoid having a style, except by complete incompetence,  and conversely natural objects or sights cannot be said to have a style, as style only results from choices made by a maker. Artists in recent developed societies tend to be highly conscious of their own style, arguably over-conscious, whereas for earlier artists stylistic choices were probably “largely unselfconscious”.
The names of most older styles are the invention of art historians and would not have been understood by the practitioners of those styles. Some originated as terms of derision, including Gothic , Baroque , and Rococo. Western art, like that of some other cultures, most notably Chinese art , has a marked tendency to revive at intervals “classic” styles from the past.
Classical art criticism and the relatively few medieval writings on aesthetics did not greatly develop a concept of style in art, or analysis of it,  and though Renaissance and Baroque writers on art are greatly concerned with what we would call style, they did not develop a coherent theory of it, at least outside architecture. Giorgio Vasari set out a hugely influential but much-questioned account of the development of style in Italian painting mainly from Giotto to his own Mannerist period.
