The morphological transformations of the image in modern European painting (Installed plates as a model)

Abstract

The current study, entitled as (Formal transformations of the image in Modern European Drawing(Composite Paintings as a model)) investigates an artistic phenomenon that has itsan aesthetic and intellectual reference in the arts of ancient civilizations, which affected the products of modern European drawing in many artworks that are characterized by the multiplicity of scenes, to discover the features of the transformation and its aesthetical characteristics in the contexts of the structure of the image that came together with the desire of some artists to produce a multi-parts complex artwork that differs in composition and form from a single painting.The formal transformations in such works resulted in the emergence of another transformations at the level of the general structural pattern of modern European painting that its artistic schools are known by the development according to the dictates of the intellectual pressures of each stage, so that art has made a clear transformation in the aspects of producing the artistic image in terms of construction and performance, and in various ways that drawing was subjected to a linear sequential format that combines several works of a variable structural pattern to witness the emergence of more contiguous visual surfaces.The current research includes four chapters, the first one deals with the research problem, its importance and the need for it, passing through the research aim that centered on (Detecting the formal transformations of the image structure in Modern European Drawing) and define terminology.The second chapter includes the theoretical framework that contains two basic topics, the first one deals with the formal transformations of the image structure in ancient civilizations, while the second deals with the transformations of the composite image in the European Renaissance paintings.The third chapter of the study includes the procedures related to the research that are (50) technical models for the time period (1910 - 1973 AD), and(5) artistic models were chosen intentionally as research samples to achieve the goal of the research, and in conclusion.
