The artist created the illusion of space by overlapping images in the painting such as the palm trees in front of the mountains. The use of light gives clarity, and contrast to the painting. The Nativity Set Backdrop has extensive use of light which creates an atmospheric or aerial
Bierstadt and Bradley’s paintings both share the line as an element and rhythm as a principal. In Bierstadt’s oil painting the use of line allows the mountains and trees to take on a three dimensional shape. The use of rhythm in Bierstadt’s painting shows the similar repeated images such as, way the animals are painted to look identical to one another. In Bradley’s painting the similarity of line allows the buildings, cars, and the dessert plants to define where one three dimensional object begins and another one ends. Bradley also uses similar rhythm with the repetitive size of the buildings, cars, and dessert plants.

In the comparison of “Turning Road, L’Estaque” by Andre Derain, 1906, oil on canvas, 51 x 76 ¾ inches, and “Venus” by Ernst Matthai, 1816-1820, marble, 63 ¾ x 25 3/16 x 21 ¼, I think that the difference between them is in their usage of color.

The bodies are not mimed perfectly and are twisted. When looking at this piece there is a sense of desperation. To be able for humanity to see its flaws, Orozco uses mastery of movement and color in his murals. At time his art can give off an eerie feeling due to his use of expressionism. The size alone of the work he did at Dartmouth is incredible.
The Meeting of Joachim and Anna vs. The Annunciation While studying Renaissance art, particularly Italian art spanning from the 14th century through the 16th century, many similarities can be noted throughout paintings by various artists, yet major differences and variances can also be detected when it comes to the style that each artist chose to pursue. Each painting holds its own importance and displays its own outstanding aspects that make it great regardless of style. In Giotto di Bondone’s painting of The Meeting of Joachim and Anna from the Arena Chapel in Padua, Italy, the technique known as fresco was used. This type of painting technique uses colors that are applied to fresh plaster. Once these colors set and dry, the painting then becomes a
For example, a piece of abstract art can have ridged lines and warm vibrant colors. The ridged lines may be representing anger in the artists painting, but the warm colors give the viewer a different opinion. This is why the colors and shapes also help to define the different styles that are encompassed in abstract art. One style is curvilinear. When abstract art relates to this type of style, the motifs employed are interlaced patterns, spirals, and knots.
Actually, with this piece, I want to express the idea that a human’s personality is getting shaped by many external elements, such as environment, society, and politics. With those seven portraits that you mentioned, I want to show different moods and feelings (I like to call them existences) which comes from external elements that I express in They, I, We (Second Stage). I mean, this there many things which affect us, a lead us into some moods that are sometimes are odd. So, I try to depict those strange feelings. Additionally, for these drawing I used my own portraits, but I do not want them a self-portrait.
