The painting I chose to write about is a “Portrait of a Roman Lady La Nanna” by Sir Frederic Leighon. This painting took place in a castle. In this portrait she is attractive and beautiful. She looks like she was sitting on a chair when the artist was creating this painting. She has jet black wavy long hair with thick eyebrows and flawless makeup. Around her eyes and inside her eyes are black. She is wearing a white pearl necklace around her neck. She has on a lovely red and white dress with a little black bow hanging from her dress and a creamy color robe hanging off her shoulders. She is posing like a model with her left arm across her stomach and her right arm is on her shoulders with her fingers going into her dress. In the background the …show more content…
The artist capture everything to make this picture even more beautiful. I assume that Sir Frederick Leighton was very precise about the colors that he used to create her clothing to give it texture. La Nanna looks like she was a smart, confident strong women and a role mole for young girls in her times. She also looks like she was very cocky and successful. The way her eyes look in the portrait she looks like she was evil and the way her face looks she look like she was strict and took everything seriously when it came down to work. This portrait fits under art and beauty. Art and beauty encompasses many things. Art and beauty is the human capacity for making things of beauty and things that stir us into creativity. I believe art is a way to express a feeling, or an inclination and to create an alternate perspective of the world. Beauty alone is not art, but art can be made of about, for magnificent things. This painting fits under art and beauty because I believe this portrait is very detailed it shows her beauty through art.

Mona Lisa painting have more vibrant details. The paintings both has a lot of details about their beauty, their background, and the clothing they have

Nancy Rourke, the painter of Deaf Culture: Unity of Global Signing, was born deaf and grew up in a world of oralism (Northen, Spindel). Oralism is when someone teaches a deaf person how to read lips and talk instead of teaching them to sign (Oralism). Rourke’s parents did not know she was deaf until she was about six years old but quit in 1986 to become a graphic designer.

Her life transition did not begin until 2010 when she became involved in
There is a vase of blossoms off to one side behind them, and there are windows that post to ranger service out of sight. The blooms truly pop in the photo in light of the fact that the shades of the lady's and young lady's apparel are light whites and soul, though the blossoms are this profound orange and red shading. Their appearances are likewise extremely pale. That being said, the lady's dress has dull and thick dark
The painting “Examination of a Witch” by Thompkins H. Matterson, 1853, in the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA, was created so that the viewer could understand the allegory of the Salem witch trials. Matterson’s purpose was to show the ignorance the people of Salem had along with how naïve they were. This historic painting is a good example of the lifestyle the Puritan’s had during the 17th century. In this painting there is a crowd of people of both men and a few women all looking upon a young female as if she was a display case.
She is wearing large hoop earrings, one of which is covered by her slight hand, leaning on her graceful neck, and a silk bracelet. Both are jewel studded and colored light brown to compliment her blondish tan spaghetti strap dress that matches her flowing slightly curly golden
The form of the earring reflects light that is soft like the beams of light on the Girls face and clothes. The pearl earring has weight to it, and in society it demonstrates wealth at the time. Nonetheless, most critics agree that the earring on the girl was either a false tin that was exaggerated to resemble a real pearl earring. Others believe that it is a real pearl, but the form of its weight and volume look were painted to exaggerate its purpose (Essential.) The Girl has a deep yellow
This portrait is also known as La Gioconda, which means pleasant, delightful and happy. Leonardo painted this portrait on a popular cottonwood panel using oil paint. Most oil paint is drawn on canvases but by using cottonwood the portrait has lasted for six centuries and is hung in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. Leo uses the technique called sfumato, giving the hills and the mountains in the background a hazy look. There is also sfumato, or some shadowing, used at the corner of her eyes and lips, which gives a rhythm to her face.
The women depicted were most often courtesans and geisha at leisure, and promoted the entertainments to be found in the pleasure districts. Soon there were other subjects of all levels of beauty in order to satisfied the demand of entertainment and pleasure from all levels. The typical example would be the Three Beauties of the Present Day, 1793 by Kitagawa Utamaro. The piece depicts the profiles of three celebrity beauties of the time. The very delicate details and the careful use of color represent both artist’s and viewers’ attentions on the appearance of the painting.
The image of a young smiling carefree Marilyn Monroe elicits reverence, yet also sadness. Monroe is an iconic figure yet her tragic existence and early demise contribute greatly to status as an icon. Marilyn, appears to be an oil painting. It is a still life and the colors are vibrant and saturated. There are many items; the main being the image of a smiling Monroe inside of a open book; her image is on the right side and on the left is a page of unreadable text.
Then the way the woman is smiling in the picture, could look almost comical, but she still has some backbone. The way she is shaped in the portrait shows she has some strength and will fight for her sanity if necessary. Despite how one can see a strong, firm woman in this painting. Still today people discriminate against them, some men don’t like the idea of a woman being independent and stronger than him. However, that still won’t stop women from showing who they really are and what they have to offer to society.
The “Mona Lisa” is the best known and most visited piece of art. It is a portrait painting done by Leonardo de Vinci. The portrait is an oil painting on a white Lombardy poplar panel.
