The deep lines along her face and neck is so life like making her realistic and laboriously observed. De La Tour’s vivid and highly effective style of painting depicts what the 17th-Century European painters were trying to achieve. With the expert use of dramatic elements such as; mood, pose and texture he was able to bring out strong, deep and vivid emotions in his painting, for example; the deception of the women enclosing on the youth, and those emotions of the young man naiveness and air of being showered by wealth. These emotions pull the onlookers in as they silently and cautiously take in each element and accurate
In 1925 Otto Dix completed a painting of a friend and performing artist titled, The Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber. At first glance it appears Dix portrays Berber in a harsh and negative light, however upon a closer look at the personal, public and artistic lives of both artists one can glean that Dix represented Berber more fondly and favorably than many of his other portraits of working women. The Portrait of the Dancer Anita Berber confronts the viewer with a fire engine red color scheme that is close to monochromatic. Berber wears a slinky fitted dress that hugs and accentuates her body. The dress material bunches and stretches leading the viewer’s eyes throughout her body.
"Sonet 145" has the exactly same form. This form is extremely common is baroque poetry. The first quatrain in both poems function as a complete clause. The poems both immediately address a person, a “you,” However this "you" serves a different purpose is both poems. In Sonet CLXVI the "you" is the beautiful girl who he is urging to enjoy her beauty but in Sonet 145 the is it "you" who is looking at the painting, which is the
The soft blur over the painting looks almost as if Mary Whyte had painted it while recalling a memory. As if a walk down memory lane, the painting, while blurred, shows clearly a small child smiling sweetly behind a quilt as she holds a doll. In her mind it must be one she enjoyed as the the warm colors used give the painting a cozy atmosphere. The quilts are a strong mixture of yellows and oranges with faint amounts of green which likely were etched into Mary Whyte's mind as she painted. The girl stands, smiling softly while clutching her doll, they both wear dresses, the girl's being a cream-tan color and the dolls being a white color with small flower like orange patterns throughout.
Not all of Leak’s painting and etchings are on display for the public, but the artwork that is available to the public is truly astonishing. After observing her art in the exhibit, I carefully picked out three images to describe and interpret. The first image I will be depicting is an oil painting where Leak is the content of the painting. When you first look at the painting all you can see is Leak orbiting a crystal ball because she directly painted herself to be as if a spotlight was shining on her. The way she completed this task was by using white on certain spots of her robe to make your eyes focus solely on her.
In as much as the clothing of the subjects of the painting in both cases demonstrates affluence and association with the middle class of the renaissance society, both Bronzino and Rubens chose to give their characters clothing of relatively darker colors. These colors are perfectly amalgamated within the context of soft lines bringing a visual appeal. In as much as Rubens uses maroon in the painting of the lower part of her wife’s dress, this color is not as bright as others like red would have been, and is equally dominates by the black and dark green color used to paint the major part of the attire and the vegetation in the background respectively. In the same manner, Bronzino draped both Eleanor and her son in darker clothing and golden laces and jewelry. Both artists use a significant style of the renaissance period where the chosen colors help in moderating the hues of the surrounding (Sayre, 2012).
Usually, people thinks warm color stands for happiness and cold color stands for happiness.so through the warm color used in the painting, the whole sense will give people a feeling of comfortable and happiness. it is what other modes may lack in their expression of determining what happiness is. Meanwhile, the distinctive part of simple lines is also make the theme of happiness preform. Trees and people in the painting are all made of curves which are simple lines (Matisse). In this painting, people will realize that there are lots of couples of people who are naked and lie down in the ground.
The dish is red because it is a symbol of marriage and marriage is held together by love and that is what the red represents. The color red is important to the story because it shows emotion and especially love. Edith Wharton used several symbol to add to the story. In Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton, the author uses symbolism to add depth and importance to the story. The Cat reflects and fills zeena personality when she is not present.
In this twofold representation of Thomas Mifflin and his significant other Sarah Morris you could tell how the artist show his wealth and status of Mr. and Mrs. Mifflin, beginning off with the visual verification that sets the photo off by him solidifying the precise painting style that appear to reveal the purpose of enthusiasm of accentuating and emphasizing the sitter 's physical appearance as sure and well off. Beginning with Mrs. Sarah Mifflin, she sits in the foreground, wearing a snazzy dress, the subtle element of astonishing white tone silk shine dress is exceptionally perfect the mid length fined nitty gritty pippin on the puffy sleeves. The colorful flower that placed on the dress is very nice. If you take a look at the bottom of
I love that it is as relevant today as it was more than 250 years ago. FEMALE- Portrait of a Woman in a Blue Turban by Eugene Delacroix 1827 Oil on canvas. I selected this painting because is the one of the few paintings of a woman of color. She is dressed elegantly and painted in such a respectful way making it truly unique. She isn’t the typical subject of the time and I appreciate the paintings subtle nod to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
