One difference is in the Clemente painting it is very modern because of the clothing that they wear. For instance, in the Washington painting, it is more old-fashioned because of the clothing and the style of the furniture. However in the Washington Painting, they mostly used warm colors for their clothing and furniture. Another difference in the Clemente painting would be that they don’t use warm colors they, all mainly, wear cool toned colors. In the Clemente painting, the colors set a more somber tone.
Albert Bierstadt’s The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak (1863) is a oil on panel that means it has been created on wood, and the oil in the painting allows easy manipulation for the choice of color in the panting. However, David P. Bradley’s Indian Country Today (1997) is an acrylic on canvas that means it allows for multiple possibilities for color and technique. Bierstadt and Bradley paintings both have similar forms and choices of hue. In Bierstadt painting the use of form allows the viewer to distinguish between the mountains, trees, and the grass within the painting. In addition, the hue in Bierstadt’s painting also allows the viewer to perceive the difference between the grey color of the mountains to the hunter green of the trees and grass.
Versailles and Forbidden City represent the difference of traditional cultures and art between the East and the West. Versailles has a elegant U-shaped main building in the center and a royal court with diverse plants. Inspired by the architecture of baroque Italian villas, but executed in the French classical style, the garden front and wings were encased in white cut ashlar stone that called enveloppe. The inner palace for royal family living is decorated with minors and luxurious lights. Sculptures and paintings are displayed in every corner.
Charles Dickens, an author with many award winning novels and plays from the 19th century, used a different approach when creating his characters for his writings. In his historical novel, “A Tale of Two Cities,” Dickens uses characters who have a more skewed aspect to them with either more so protagonist views and values while some of their actions makes them appear also as an antagonist, and vice versa. He uses the passion of the characters in their development to make them an in between, so to speak, character, also known as monogamous. Throughout this novel, and many like it, characters are often categorized as protagonist or antagonists, but that doesn’t mean there are characters who are can be more so monogamous within “A Tale of Two Cities”; Charles Darnay, Jarvis Lorry, and Lucie Manette serve as prime examples of those subtle but no so subtle “in between” characters. Charles Darnay is one of the most intricate, diverse, obviously ambiguous character in “A Tale Of Two Cities”.
Each building was a unique design in itself, an original work of art that fulfilled the specific needs of the client, and the community it was a part of. 4. They were carefully integrated with their surroundings, both through their use of site-sensitive design and natural materials (so as to blend in with the hilly, evergreen setting) and by bringing the outdoors indoors, through devices as large expanses of glass, balconies and decks to allow sunlight, natural scents and breezes from outside to flow through the interiors
In his many years of working under him, da Vinci learned to make paint and brushes. After da Vinci left Verrocchio’s studio, he went on to accomplish many great things in the field of art such as painting “The Mona Lisa”. However, since da Vinci rarely recorded personal information of exact dates, the exact year he painted “The Mona Lisa” is unknown (Kallen 11). This painting is especially known for the mastery of technical innovations and the mysteriousness of the legendary smiling subject. The famous piece is now hanging in a museum in Paris.
The interconnections exhibit at the Moma is truly breath taking. Upon entering the exhibit it can be a little overwhelming as there is so much going on. You have the giant room painted wall to wall ceiling to floor, along with miniature sculptures of visionary architecture. So many interesting pieces in the exhibit, but a couple of paintings really caught my eye one by Sanile Goje and another by Laurie Simmons. Laurie Simmons painting is titled the “Walking House” and Sandile Goje painting is titled “ The Meeting Of Two Cultures.” I was drawn to these two paintings mainly because of my love for history and social behavior.
One complaint about the exhibit was the real life representation of the bedroom paintings. I felt as though maybe it could be a display in a history museum because I came to an art museum to look at art not a real life display of what was painted. Also as the exhibit went on there were various other little things that caught my attention such as the paints used in some of Van Gogh’s paintings and his pallet. I was actually stunned that they had such artifacts but again these should be in a history museum. The last part of the Arles section was by far the best because it had a computer where you could examine all three of “The Bedroom” paintings at once.
The book “Frankenstein” has shown many characteristics that are commonly found in books published in the Romanticism literary period, such as having a mythical quality, relations to mythology, and the belief of childhood innocence. “Frankenstein” has also shown common methods of transportation such as certain types of carriages people would use during 1818. It has also described activities that children and adults would spend their leisure time doing. Such as playing, reading and playing instruments, which are very similar to what many of people of society in the year 1818 would
Colleen Baker 4/2/2017 Art 281 East Asian Art & Architecture Essay The exhibition I chose to use for my analysis is the Smithsonian Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M.

Chinese brushes comparison to other brushes the versatility of the brush used from arts and calligraphy to the carefully picked materials that manufacture the brush with brushes made with different types of animal fur, from rabbit, wolf, bear, goat and horses.
