SpecialtyArts.Com is hosting an online discussion forum on controversial
subjects in the visual arts that may be of interest to your readers. I'd
like to invite you to explore our forum at:
www.specialtyarts.com/discuss-hockney.htm and submit personal comments about
the current topic under review- the controversy spurred by David Hockney's
new theory on art history.
Even if you did not hear any of David Hockney’s lectures earlier this year, it’s not too late to find why his controversial theory on art history stirred so much attention among the art establishment. You can now go online, see artwork cited as evidence, find a summary of all the key issues, examine the arguments, and participate in the discussion forum on art hosted by the web site, www.SpecialtyArts.Com.
At the center of the debate is the question, How did the old masters draw so wellNULL The modern British master, David Hockney, believes that early camera technology was an important drawing aid in the creation of much of the realist art we have come to revere over the centuries. Some art experts are intrigued by Hockey’s theory but many challenge his lack of hard evidence. Gary Fagin, Founder of the Academy of Realist Art, contends that artists such as Caravaggio, Bellini, Raphael, Velazquez, and Van Dyck didn’t have to cheat. SpecialtyArts.Com presents visitors with a variety of positions on the controversy and the opportunity to express their opinions.
The question being raised in the site’s new topic for discussion is the role of technology in what is presented as art. The question is complex and SpecialtyArts.Com, Inc. plans to publish all visitor comments and suggested resources that contribute positively to the discussion and invite an exchange of ideas.
