RESEARCHING YOUR EXERCISE:
a) Initial research tasks – current reference texts:
Start searching for information on your artist by working through the current reference texts on nineteenth—century European art. These should include major art historical dictionaries and specialist nineteenth—century dictionaries, such as:
J. Turner (ed.), The Dictionary of Art, London, 1996, 34 volumes [See Oxford Art Online]
E. Benezit (ed.), Dictionnaire critique et documentaire des peintres, sculpteurs, dessinateurs et graveurs, Paris, (1948) 1999
U. Thieme & F. Becker, Allgemeines Lexikon der bildenden Künstler von der Antike bis zurGegennwart; unter Mitwirkung von 300 Fachgelehrten des in— und Auslandes hrsg. Leipzig, 1907—50
T. W. Strieter, Nineteenth—century European art: a topical dictionary, Greenwood Press, 1999 [709.03043 STRI]
P. Dunford, A biographical dictionary of women artists in Europe and America since 1850, Harvester Wheatsheaf, 1990 [709.22 DUNE]
C. Petteys et al., Dictionary of women artists: an international dictionary of women artists born before 1900, Boston, Mass, C1985
C. Yeldham, Women artists in nineteenth—century France and England: their art education, exhibition opportunities and membership of exhibiting societies and academies, with an assessment of the subject matter of their work and summary biographies, New York, 1984 C. Wood, Dictionary of Victorian Painters, Woodbridge, 1971 [759.2 WOO 1]
b) Collection references:
Check the publications of the National Gallery of Victoria. Does it appear in permanent collection catalogues or any of the exhibition catalogues? For example:
U. Hoff, European Paintings before 1800 in the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne,(fourth edition), 1995.
[National Gallery of Victoria], Pre—Raphaelites and their circle in the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1978.
T. Gott, 19th century Painting and Sculpture in the international collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2003.
J. Poynter, Mr Felton’s Bequests, Miegunyah Press, Melbourne, 2008.
You should check the provenance of the work: when was it acquired? Who owned it before that?
c) Search through the secondary literature (books, articles, exhibition catalogues) to research the artist’s life and work, and seek references to your work or similar works by the artist in term of subject matter, chronology (i.e. early work, later work), technique,etc.
If the subject matter is noteworthy, search under subjects such as ‘Realism’ or ‘Nude’ or ‘Portraiture’. For example:
B. Stewart, Dictionary of portrait painters in Britain up to 1920, Antique Collectors Club, 1997.
Use the Baillieu library catalogue to search for books and exhibition catalogues. Use various ‘search engines’ (Wilson Art Index, BHA, etc.) to search for articles, citations, etc., via the Discovery link on the library website.
d) Familiarise yourself with other works by the artist and their circle:
Go to the web and search for your artists under Google images.
Search other accessible image databases: such as major institutions’ on—line collections (Tate, Musee D’Orsay, Louvre, Metropolitan Museum).
Go to the Witt Photography Library microform [MICf WITT] and search under your artist.
This section provide an important data related to porosity and permeability in order to get a better understanding in reservoir and flow of different types of fluids using DHP (Digital Helium Porosimeter) and DGP (Digital Gas Porosimeter) devices also VINCI is one of the instruments that used for steady- state processes. SCAL sectio Special core analysis section are specialist in understanding petrophysical properties goes beyond special techniques with advance tests to help the client more in estimating their fields. It is important to note however, that SCAl provide several services in MICP (mercury injection and capillary pressure), FRF (formation resistivity factor), and permeability of fluids especially water, CT scan, and flush cleaning using different solvents. However, the department provides unique tests related to the above processes in order to ensure the delivery of good quality services and focus on saving costs to the customer. Therefore, SCAL section is responsible for different fluid analysis at several stages in order to fulfil all the operational requirements and to achieve important results that optimize production and development of the fields. Other sections Weatherford laboratories also provide some other services behind the services provided by CCA and SCAL. These services include the basic experiments and requirement to observe several parameters such as temperature, pressure, and type of gas. Summary of the internship I have implemented the internship in Weatherford Company, Is one of the international oilfield services company. The company has several sections and the section where I had training is the Weatherford laboratory and is considered one of the main sections in Weatherford. The Weatherford labs are located in Ghala Industrial Estate in Oman. The company offers internship opportunities to students in different departments for example wireline, product line which include laboratories, and finances related to their major and skills. During the 6 weeks of the internship program, several tasks were assigned to me according to my major and practical skills in all the 3 units of laboratory department. I spend one week and several days in each unit with multi tasks given whereby some are related to my studies and others are for the purpose of gaining new experience in other fields that are semi-related. Besides that, I was trained not only in improving my soft skills, but, also dealing with several safety situations in the workplace and management technique when dealing with During my training a couple of approaches were assigned to me such as calculating the porosity and permeability using different instruments for example DHP (Digital Helium Porosimeter) and DGP (Digital Gas Porosimeter) also VINCI which is used for unsteady-state processes, how inject mercury to samples and calculating the bulk volume of the sample using Archimedes law, CT scan which include several software�s for making videos of core sample to analyze the fractures and how it will affect the value of porosity and permeability, Formation Resistivity Factor ( capillary pressure) (appendix 2), permeability of fluids, flush cleaning using different solvents, and finally the dean stark which is about extraction of oil and water.>GET ANSWER
