This contest is fueled by the following news: A painting known as "The Village Ba'Game" is the earliest known painting of a football game and was created in 1830 by Scottish artist Alexander Carse. The painting can be found in Edinburgh and is slated for auction this summer. It is expected to bring in $100,000. The painting likely was first exhibited at the Scottish Royal Academy in 1830 and is one of three paintings by Carse of the game. It is similar to a Carse work that belongs to a Dundee art gallery and that currently is on tour at the World Cup in Germany. The painting slated to be auctioned depicts a large number of villagers, including children, clergyman and even animals engaged in a kick around. They are cheered on by women and elderly spectators. The painting was purchased in Glasgow shortly after the end of the Second World War. This marks the first time that the painting has appeared for auction in over 50 years. The auction takes place at Bonham's at the firm's George Street address on August 25th. Indian ink and half-painting technique Ė crayon - are also related to painting. Painting can be done on any base: on rock, plaster, canvas, silk, paper, leather (including body of animal or man), metal, asphalt, concrete and so on and so forth. Painting meets and is a neighbor of plastic arts, including architecture, sculpture; it can participate in shaping of artificial and natural environment. Painting like other fine arts is delusive: it is an imitation of three dimensional spaces in plane achieved by means of linear and color perspective. But it's visual and that too color aspect (eye perceives, in split of a second, practically unlimited information) is conditioned exceptional place painting among all other fine arts.
