We are writing a paper on a field trip to the Caldwell County Historical Museum. I am going to explain what I found at the Museum. When I first thought about the Museum I thought it was going to be like a room with cases of different artifacts and documents. When you arrive you sign this book saying that you have been there When I heard about the Caldwell County Historical Museum, I did not know what to expect. At first I thought it was going to be a room filled with artifacts and documents.
I was attracted by this piece among all the photographs in the museum. The obvious symmetric glass building in the front with a blurry reflection of other buildings that cought my eyes. The piece is named “Reflection, Old St.Louis County Courthouse,” and photographed by William Clift in 1976. It is a 30x40 cm black and white photography and the medium is Gelatin silver. The glass building is a rectangle shape with perpendicular to the side roads.
Beauty in Beliefs The art piece, Peaceable Kingdom by Edward Hicks has a medium of oil on canvas which consists of a lot of detail and meaning. This was a painting made in 1832 with a scale of 17 7/8 x 23 7/8 inches and now is part of the MET collection. Hicks intention with this painting was to get the idea of Isaiah 11:6 into image since it wasn 't going so well at the time of the paintings creation.
The piece of art I selected is a one called Suburban Landscape. An artist by the name of Alan Barden produced this in the year 1982. It comprises a collection of three paintings, the first two created with what I believe to be acrylic paint and the final one with oil. I found this work of art at the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Gallery.
The physical qualities of Diego Rivera’s “Two Women and a Child” feature an oil on canvas medium. In this painting, Rivera utilizes the fresco technique which according to “A Beginners Guide to the Humanities” is a painting on a surface of plastered wall or ceiling, usually applied when the plaster is wet. Using the fresco technique allows any work of art to have a durable consistency and matte finish. The shapes of the figures have curvilinear lines to accentuate the curves and swirls of their bodies.
This oil on canvas art piece is a beautiful scenery of a sunset over the sea and a lighthouse on a cliff to the far left of the painting. Next
It was donated to the Dayton Art Institute my Mrs. Harrie G. Carnell in 1928. It is located in gallery 112, and the acquisition number is 1928. 48. A & B. I chose the Stone Relief with Dragon Design for my paper because I love the store it tells within itself.
I do believe though that my favorite piece featured in the museum is Dream (Mantis Religiosa) by M.C. Escher. This wood engraving was created in the year of 1935. The artwork is 13 by 10 inches. Escher’s Dream (Mantis Religiosa) depicts a sleeping man with a praying mantis laying on top of him.
The next artwork is done by Louise Bourgeois called Cumul. The interesting part of this artist is she makes really abstract sculptures but it looks like you can just touch it and it will feel real. This sculpture was made of marble which look like a form of round fluffy clouds. This sculpture looks really 3-D as to someone can interact with it. This painting, just like the two above include male and female body parts .
And the two artworks are Number 1 by Pollock Jackson from expressionism and Mama, Papa is wounded! By Yves Tanguy from surrealism. I chose these artworks because these were the most influence artwork in those movements Number 1 was painted in 1950. This painting is made on oils,
