Archaeic Age Art

Red figure

began in 530 BCE

virtually the same methof as black figure, except the background stays black

advantages, paint fine detail, lines can overlap, can paint in expression, can control texture, more naturalistic look

Black figure

Sawdust and manure are added to the kiln. the oxygen level decreases, figure turns black, oxygen level rises, everything except for figure turns red.

disadvantages, no fine detail, lines can't overlap, no expression, no texture changes, less natural looking, details have to be scratched in

Six characteristics of art

1) horror vacui

2) rigid division of vase into a rational and balence

3) the use of geometric shapes

4) three horizantal lines seperate each change of direction

5) the most important scene is placed between the handles where the vase swells out

6) people and animals on vases constructed out of crude geometric parts
