[by:www.TingVOA.com - VOA英语网][00:00.00]如果你喜欢VOA英语网(www.Tingvoa.com),请介绍给更多的同学哦[00:00.10]Unit 6 Design[00:1.00]Lesson 21 A Matter of Taste Chinese Prints[00:2.00]This exhibition starts on 1 July at the Newman Galleryin Dinham[00:3.00]and ends on 15 September.At 6:00 p.m.on Friday 3 July[00:4.00]there will be a talk on Chinese painting by Dr Alison Enwright[00:5.00]In August there will be talks on Chinese culture.[00:6.00]Opening times:Mon.-Sat.from 10 a.m.to 6 p.m.[00:7.00]Admission:FreeXu Beihong(1895-1953) was important in modern Chinese folk art.[00:8.00]During his lifetime,he developed the tradition of combining poetry,[00:9.00]calligraphy with painting.[00:10.00]Between 1933 and 1940,[00:11.00]he held a number of exhibitions in Asia and Europe to promote Chinese art.[00:12.00]Across the painting,named Racing Horse,[00:13.00]we can see a horse galloping at high speed.[00:14.00]On the left and right side of the painting,[00:15.00]Xu cleverly drew in black ink to show the moving hair on the horse's mane and tail[00:16.00]He also used different shades of grey in a creative way[00:17.00]to show the sweat along the horse's body.[00:18.00]The painting of dark and light colours is a favourite of many art CRItics.[00:19.00]Qi Baishi (1863-1957)was one of China's greatest painters.[00:20.00]He worked as a wood carver during his early youth.[00:21.00]Then between 1902 and 1909, he travelled across the country[00:22.00]and painted many landscapes.[00:23.00]His interest changed later to simple images from everyday life,[00:24.00]such as vegetables,flowers, birds and insects.[00:25.00]Cabbage is a well known example of Qi's work.[00:26.00]The tiny insect near the cabbage has some red on its back.[00:27.00]Its shiny black eyes,which are fixed on the cabbage,[00:28.00]show the creature's interest in the vegetable.[00:29.00]Qi Baishi's style of painting[00:30.00]often leaves the audience guessing and makes them use their imagination.[00:31.00]Chen Yifei (1946- ) is a very successful artist.[00:32.00]His soft portraits of beautiful women are very valuable.[00:33.00]In 1997, one of his paintings sold for US$503,000.[00:34.00]The painting, named Poppy, is a classic example of Chen's artistic style.[00:35.00]In the painting, a young woman sits alone and is deep in thought.[00:36.00]Her hand holding the fan is elegantly positioned above her knees.[00:37.00]To emphasise the woman even more,[00:38.00]Chen adds a lot of details to her dress and fan,[00:39.00]and chooses to paint the background behind the woman black.[00:40.00]Lesson 23 Chinese Paper Art[00:41.00]Chen Zijiang is a paper-cutting expert whom I interviewed recently.[00:42.00]Paper-cutting is something that he learned to do from an early age.[00:43.00]I talked to him to find out more about paper-cut art.[00:44.00]'Paper-cutting is a Chinese folk art with a long history,'says Mr Chen.'[00:45.00]Paper cuts of animals have been found in tombs[00:46.00]which dale back to the time of the Northern and Southern Dynasty (386-589).[00:47.00]By the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279),[00:48.00]paper-cutting had become an important part of everyday life[00:49.00]For example,a young farmer who wanted a wife would[00:50.00]look at a young woman's paper-cutting skills to choose his bride.[00:51.00]According to Chen Zijiang, there are three types[00:52.00]of paper cutswhich people like to make.[00:53.00]One type is used for decorating windows,walls, gates and lanterns.[00:54.00]These paper cuts are put up during holidays to bring good luck.[00:55.00]For the same reason,the are used to decorate presents.[00:56.00]A present for parents whose child was born recently,[00:57.00]for example, might feature pictures of children or eggs.[00:58.00]Paper cuts which feature the Chinese character[00:59.00]for double happiness are commonly used to celebrate weddings.[1:00.00]Another type of paper cuts is used for religious purposes.[1:1.00]These paper cuts are often used as temple decorations[1:2.00]or offerings to the dead People to whom the dead person was related[1:3.00]would make these offerings on special days and during festivals.[1:4.00]A third kind of paper cuts is used in the design of other crafts.[1:5.00]For example, a paper cut may be used as a pattern for embroideryon clothing[1:6.00]or a pattern on a jewellery box.[1:7.00]For newcomers to paper-cutting,[1:8.00]Mr Chen suggests practising easy designs such as snowflakes.[1:9.00]I have scissors,paper and a lot of determination.Hopefully.[1:10.00]I'll also have a snowflake too.[1:11.00]Lesson 24 Dream Houses[1:12.00]The House on Mango Street[1:13.00]we didn't always live on Mango Street.[1:14.00]Before that we lived on Loomis on the third floor,[1:15.00]and before that we lived on Keeler.[1:16.00]Before Keeler it was Paulina,and before that I can't remember.[1:17.00]But what I remembered most is moving a lot.[1:18.00]Each time it seemed there'd be one more of us.[1:19.00]By the time we got to Mango Street we were six Mama, Papa, Carlos,[1:20.00]Kiki, my sister Nenny and me.[1:21.00]The house on Mango Street is ours, and we don't have to pay rent to anybody,[1:22.00]or share the yard with the people downstairs,[1:23.00]or be careful not to make too much noise,[1:24.00]and there isn't a landlord banging on the ceiling with a broom.[1:25.00]But even so, it's not the house we thought we'd get.[1:26.00]We had to leave the flat on Loomis quick.[1:27.00]The water pipes broke[1:28.00]and the landlord wouldn't fix them because the house was too old.[1:29.00]We had to leave fast.[1:30.00]We were using the washroom next doorand carrying water over in empty milk gallons.[1:31.00]That's why Mama and Papa looked for a house,[1:32.00]and that's why we moved into the house on Mango Street,[1:33.00]far away, on the other side of town.[1:34.00]They always told us that one day we would move into a house,[1:35.00]a real house that would be ours so we wouldn't have to move each year.[1:36.00]And our house would have running water and pipes that worked[1:37.00]And inside it would have real stairs, not hallway stairs,[1:38.00]but stairs inside like the houses on TV[1:39.00]And we'd have a basementand at least three washrooms[1:40.00]so when we took a bathwe wouldn't have to tell everybody.[1:41.00]Our house would be white with trees around it,[1:42.00]a great big yard and grass growing without a fence.[1:43.00]This was the house Papa talked about when he held a lottery ticket[1:44.00]and this was the house Mama dreamed up in the storiesshe told us before[1:45.00]we went to bed.[1:46.00]But the house on Mango Street is not the way they told it at all.[1:47.00]It's small and red with tight steps in front and windows[1:48.00]so small you'd think they were holding their breath.[1:49.00]Bricks are crumbling in placesand the front door is[1:50.00]so swollen you have to push hard to get in.[1:51.00]There is no-front yard,only four little elms the city planted by the curb.[1:52.00]Out back is a small garage for the car we don't own yet[1:53.00]and a small yard that looks smaller between the two buildings on either side.[1:54.00]There are stairs in the house,but they're ordinary hallway stairs,[1:55.00]and the house has only one washroom.[1:56.00]Everybody has to share a bedroom -Mama and Papa,[1:57.00]Carlos and Kiki, me and Nenny. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180128/531773.html
