Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Suicide 1916 by George Grosz and how it is related to the theory of art Suicide 1916 was painted by a German artist named George Grosz (1893-1958) during the period of First World. This period of the time informs us about how tough his life could have been to go through it.

Conclusion

One other thing that helped us to appreciate and understand the paintings better can be the descriptions of the paintings that were placed right next to each of them. These descriptions helped us to know more in depths about the intension of the artists and the painting itself. It is obvious that art isn't exactly the same as other Areas of Knowledge. It is surely more subjective and has no definite truth. But the fact that it contains at least a form of knowledge within itself and it has the ability to convey us the knowledge it contains, why can't it be just like other knowledge we learn from? It is for sure, depended on individuals how art can be judged whether as a knowledge or something else than that. But knowing all the characteristics of art, the society should take a side in accepting it then rejecting it. ...read more.
