The second difference seen is in the way that these paintings are done. For instance, The Sower uses expressive line throughout the entire drawing. In the field, it can be noticed that the colors are overlapped. Van Gogh is known for using expressive line in his work, which can also be seen in his other painting named Starry Night. Veteran in a New Field doesn’t use expressive line.
His work was large in scale, flamboyant in color, and fluidity. He is most closely linked with what is known as action painting. No drop of paint is an accident and loose, rapid sweeping brushstrokes make this style reminiscent of the Surrealists. Pollock became influenced by Picasso, Miro alongside Rothko and the surrealists but soon developed his own unique style which he would later become famous for. Mark Rothko’s technique of painting departs from Pollock’s actions.
The use of shading of the painting, along with sa was quite interesting because the half with the settlers was vibrant and colourful, and as it moved towards the right, the painting becomes darker, with less intensity. It’s most likely supposed to display good and evil, the light, happiness, and the dark, cold, depression. The native Americans are displayed as vile and dark, something that needs to be moved.

This painting shows them being moved farther and farther west, away from the settlements, in what was called the “Trail of Tears”.

The landscape painting is depicted vertically, showing a deep mass and volume of the painting and visually showing a dream-like fade that is highly influential to other artworks during the song era in the "golden age of Chinese landscape painting".6 The painting was highly influenced by the movement of the imperial court and reflects highly on the details of its landscape form, showing it 's foregrounds and depth. The way Li Cheng envisioned the idea of total restlessness is by creating a wash of mineral colored pigments to show a symbolic atmosphere of a dream. The elements of the painting contain tampered brushed lines that appear to be modulated or iron-wire painted lines.7 The painting consists of a very washed out texture, forming an illusion of depth through perspective, and managing a dramatic backdrop that displays a rich fade of what appears to
The Great Wave Poetry is “the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts” (Dictionary.com). Painting is “the works of art painted in a particular manner, place, or period” (Dictionary.com). Even though poetry and painting are two different forms of art, when viewed together they can help the viewer visualize much more in their mind. The painting and the poetry interpretation of the painting titled “The Great wave”, when analyzed separately and then together, help the viewer to visualize the turmoil and strife that the painter is going through in his life. “The Great Wave” by Katsushilza Hokusai is an extremely famous painting that has been around since the 1800’s.
The poem, “ The Tyger” by William Blake has many different kinds of tone in the poem such as disappointment, beauty, and the one i chose which was astonishment.

An example of syntax in the poem is, “ Burnt the fire if thine eyes” this is an example because there are other ways of writing.

Upon gazing at the works of Rembrandt van Rijn, I was immediately able to distinguish the unique aspects of the Baroque style. One of his masterpieces titled “The Return of the Prodigal Son,” is believed to have been completed shortly prior to his death.

The dramatic quality of the Baroque style can also be seen in the painting as represented by the figures worrisome expressions
