For Plato, poets and painters are both imitators and their work a third- generation removed from the truth. For Aristotle, TV he poet being an imitator just like the painter or other maker of likenesses, he must necessarily in all instances represent things in one or other of three aspects, either as they were or are, or as they are said or thought to be or to have been, or as they ought to be. ” More than five hundred years ago Leonardo dad Vinci entered into a stinging debate With a bunch Of pFompous poets Who degraded painting as a mechanical art.
Defending the primacy of art, Oleomargarine, architect, scientist, and a genius Of high Renaissance—snapped: “If you call painting dumb poetry the painter may call poetry blind painting. He argued that a good painter can provide a more intelligible and beautiful sense experience than a poet because painting satisfies the eye whereas poetry appeals to the ear and seeing is superior to hearing. In the 18th century the play,Wight and philosopher Godhood Leggings described the intrinsic difference veneer painting and poetry in terms of the distinction between image and word.
He rejected the ancient belief that these two arts are in fact similar, or as the Roman poet Horace put it: UT picture poesies (painting is like poetry). Leggings also pointed out that the domain of painting is space While the domain of poetry is time. In my opinion, transferring a poem exactly to another form is quite an impossible task because of the unique nature of every vernacular and their petticoat idioms. And on the other hand, painting as an art form is unique as well.
It can portray astonishingly beautiful or ugly people, or show breathtakingly magnificent or depressingly dull landscapes and still lives and other visual phenomenon, which defy exact verbal description. Generally speaking, objects of the visual world can be represented in painting more accurately than in Words. However, poetry has the upper hand in describing emotional states and mental events. A comparison Of these two art forms reveals that in many ways both poetry and painting resist conversion, and they mutually defy transference into each other.
However, despite their irreconcilable differences, painting and poetry share many common titivates. With the development of literature and enlargement of understanding about this world, we have to acknowledge the integration of poetry and painting as well. Through five thousand years of continuous civilization, Chinese art has developed a rich language of symbols, By the second century the image of falling leaves, for instance, had become a metaphor for troubled times n which great talent was cast aside and unjustly punished with exile, Magnificent flowers often symbolize beautiful ladies.
Rising above a lake they may represent fairies with red hair spins walking above the water and one single lotus flower in the Huh Sing Pool is like the entire world. In spite of its fragmentary posture western culture has produced great artists excelling in different branches of art. Among painters and poets the oeuvre of such artists as Michelangelo, Goethe, William Blake, Billionaire and Picasso shows the unity of painting and poetry. As the proverb goes, “there is a poem painting, painting in poetry_ A successful mom, in my perspective, is the one with a relative aesthetic painting in our mind when we read it.
That is what we called in Chinese Hi Jinn. Poor example, a famous poem in China “Shih Chi SAA Sang’ written by Wang Wee, which gives us 3 picturesque painting in our mind immediately: the desolation and broadness of a frontier fortress, a puff of smoke and the setting sun… Len terms of painting, painter integrates With poetic beauty. In Song dynasty, the task for getting a professional painter certification required examine to draw a painting according to a piece of poem. Poetry enters the painting, bringing the creativity into the minting. Even the limit of time can also be overcome.
In conclusion, although poetry and painting have some differences, they both are important literature forms, we pay more attention to what they bring to us. In my vision painting and poetry invite us to step into a deeper level of reality that lies under the peel of surface appearances. The creativity power of art can play a significant role in ameliorating the human human condition, in making the planet a habitable and welcoming environment for ourselves and for utter generations, Without concern, responsibility, care, compassion and love we cannot survive.
