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. I compare this portrait to “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci because, they are both portraits of women who were considered to be beautiful and role models for young girls back in their times. Mona Lisa painting have more vibrant details.

Melvin Williams Arth 1381 Professor Zalman 13 November 2014 Visual Analysis The painting, The Basket Chair c.1885 by Berth Morisot, and the painting The Orange Trees c. 1878 by Gustave Caillebotte, are both magnificent and interesting pieces that I got the opportunity to see. The paintings are both wonderful pieces and their composition overall is very impressive.

a. Analyze the ways that the young girls in the photo reflect the influence of Katniss Everdeen as a role model.

Johannes Vermeer’s genius is credited to his artistic abilities, dating far beyond the 17th century. Vermeer is able to create beautiful paintings with extensive detail and simplicity, while breaking the boundaries of the normal 17th century modes. The majority of paintings that originated in the 17th century were historical paintings, based on biblical texts and greek mythology. Vermeer focused on the genre paintings while using women in the paintings to showcase modern housework and housewife responsibilities in a eye opening light to those in the 21st century. Jonathan Jason wrote in Vermeer's subject matter “their costuming- it's colouring, shapes and associations contributes so much to bodily construction and expression that he absence
William Shakespeare’s works, written primarily from the late eighteen hundreds to the very early sixteen hundreds, have long been the subject of academic debates and analysis. Potent with double entendres, metaphors, and social commentary, it is easy to apply queer theory to Shakespeare’s plays, notably Twelfth Night, written in 1601.

The most apparent homosexual themes are present in the relationship between Antonio and Sebastian. Antonio, who saved Sebastian from

O’Brien’s article mentions how the narrative and camera angles are of pivotal importance in establishing the standings of the three main characters of the movie: Thomas, Matt and Tess.
Colour and texture are paramount in the work. Each painting is unique, with a tactile presence, which reveals the hand of the artist.
