Van Gogh's Starry Night is considered his most famous work and it characterizes his individual technique. The style of this painting is another example of mixing abstract with realism. I can clearly tell what is the sky, what is a mountain, and what is a building, and yet all of these objects seem to mix and swirl into one another in a way that they seem connected. The artist use of thick and flowing layered lines made the sky expands beyond the place. In Starry Night Van Gogh´s unique, thick brushstrokes are very much evident and there is a consistency to his technique that adds even more depth and texture to this work of art and made it look like a dream.

The true definition of honor is “a privilege” or “high respect”. To me honor means having courage to be committed to or feel pride for something or someone, so I guess I’m not that far off.

One scientist is a man famous for his inventions but mostly for his world known art pieces including The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. He was also the only left handed artist of his time.
The usage of curvilinear lines emphasizes the rounded shapes within the painting and the model’s moment of reflection.

This painting is realistic, she is proportionate and she looks like any other girl that one might see. Over all, this painting is pleasing to the eye and had wonderful texture, and
Both of these paintings have a dark background. In West’s painting, Death of General Wolfe, the sky in the background is filling with dark clouds and smoke. The battlefield appears like it has a shadow over it, while the foreground figures are bright and have light shining on them.

Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art.
