O’Keeffe always tried to see nature and other commonly painted objects differently, which is one major reason she changed artwork for men and women in future years. The Dow Method is a major reason O 'Keeffe 's paintings are so famous today, even the emotion O’Keeffe was able to put into a simple picture of a rabbit next to a copper pot had already gotten her so far. O’Keeffe played a key role in bringing American art to Europe (Fallon 23). Furthermore, her emotionally touching paintings spoke to men and women all over which caused many more women to feel able to become painters and not just school art teachers. O’Keeffe’s rising to fame in the 1920’s changed the attitude towards woman joining art schools (“Woman in the Early to Mid-20th Century (1900-1960): Woman and the Arts” 91).
The barn use to be run down with the Mail Pouch painted on the sign, now it is bright pink. The painted the one sign of the the barn bright pink and put stuff on that side to do with Breast Cancer Awareness. I like this piece of art work for two reason it stands for something that means a lot to me and it gives Gallipolis Ferry/ Apple Grove some modernization with the bright color. In conclusion, there are many different art pieces within Mason County. My favorites are the Battle of Point Pleasant Murals on the floodwall, the barn Quilt Blocks throughout Mason County, and the Susan G. Komen “Mail Pouch Barn”.
The medium was oil paint on a canvas, which had a good a effect on the tree. In grade 6 my class was shown a picture of the jack pine for landscape painting inspiration, once I saw it the image got stuck in my head. The colors collaborated where very interesting and the tree looked so realistic. Canadians should really know this famous piece because its transforming. Its’ so unique, I never heard about oil painting on a canvas until I researched further on about this piece.
The painting that really caught my eyes while waking through Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art at St. Gregory was Reading the Letter by a twentieth century artist named, Harry Roseland. During the twentieth century genre painting became a huge deal and artist starting showing more and more. This allowed the artist to tell a story Roseland was self- taught and really enjoyed depicting old and poor African Americans. The reason Roseland loved painting these Post Civil War African Americans was because it was a topic that was going unnoticed. The first thing that I notice in this painting is that the white woman is the brightest thing in the painting.
The piece of Art, Smiling Girl, a Courtesan Holding an Obscene Image, painted by Gerrit van Honthorst in 1625 can be seen at the Saint Louis Art Museum. I was initially drawn to this image from across the gallery mostly due to the subject’s bright red dress with gold sleeves, it was one of the brightest colored images in the gallery. It is about three feet tall and two feet wide, it is an oil on canvas painting. As i approached the image, I was still intrigued as the image she is holding is of a naked man facing away, the subject in the painting seems to get enjoyment from this. To me this piece of art makes me curious, I want to know who this woman was and why she is holding that image.
Because the mountains and waterfalls were found in nature, it is pleasing to the eye and can be considered naturalistic. In my opinion, this painting looks like it is from early in the morning.
