There was a focus point which is Saint Francis. Although the painting mainly consist of black and tan colors, the slight bright colors to balance of the black. This help bring out the details, such as the blessing on hands and the kneeling of people. Yet, the details were not too big that it would be too much to handle. This helps get the message across to the audience, like myself.
The main focus of the painting is the architectural aspect. The scene is dominated by the main building and the large arched bridge that juts out in front of it. It is proportionally placed within the canvas. The width of the central façade makes up the central portion of the painting with the doorway being centered within the entire composition.
Over in the middle of the painting, there is a more pronounced aperture looking over a waterway and rocks. The outline of the aperture makes up the shape of the face, the woman sitting down looking over the other way forms the mouth and nose of the face and the rocks at the distance form the eyes. All these objects clearly form the face of adolescence. Over on the right side there is a smaller aperture looking over the shore and what seems to be a woman on her knees. The figure of
Even the woman’s frame and posture seem to follow the lines created by the railings of the viewing box. The railings are also implied lines, the first thing our eyes go to is the woman, and then we follow the railings to the man who has his gaze set on the woman. The man’s gaze gives us implied lines that lead us back to the main focus of the painting, the woman. The artist also uses light and dark to guide our eyes to the important parts of the artwork. Most of the artwork is dark, while the woman and the man looking at her are in the light.
One angle is also bearing the symbols of the crucifixion like the lance Christ was stabbed with and the crown of thorns. The top part of the painting as a very calming and gentle tone to it. Both panels show Jesus but they look like two different people. On the left he 's lifeless, has no clothes on and seems weak. The middle ground between heave and hell is small.
The sun beams from the sky are lighting up a small area of the painting and the rest is dark and gloomy. The gloominess of the painting represents dark and depressing times while the brightness of the sky creeps through thick dark clouds. This represents heaven because heaven is so large and bright and amazing that even though life is hard and seems like the world is ending, there is always something greater out there. Personally, I love this painting. I really like how Dore paints that trees and valley dark because it really highlights the beams from the sun.
The portrait represents the beauty of the time period. It holds simplistic colors with detailed shading. The artwork is very intriguing to me. I love the detail in the background, there are tiny brushstrokes that makes up the mountains and sky. Also, I find the shading of the mouth and eyes very interesting.
However, the top fraction of the painting is more light because it represent the sun and the other half of this painting has a darkness which can be the shadows of the lights or to illustrate the big rocks. An intuition of my part, is that I think this painting is depiction of harmony in nature. Indeed, the "Cora Kneeling at the Feet of Tamenund" is a painting that reflects the scenery beauty of the Hudson
The painting has asymmetrical because the weight on each side is uneven. Mary is much bigger than baby Jesus. The dominate design in the painting would be Mary’s face. Mary’s face is key focus; it draws your attention to see what is next. But, Mary’s hands also take domination because in early painting Mary is barely holding on to Jesus, he is just floating above her lap, but in this painting you can tell the grip Mary has on Jesus.
There is no source of natural light in the picture, and the direction of the artificial light is indiscernible. When a viewer first looks at the painting, they see the cow and man observing each other. Then, a viewer will notice the finer details of the smaller cow being milked, the man with a scythe in the town, and the sapling being held by gentle hands. The colors in the foreground are whites and greens, while in the background there are darker tones of green and black. The lines are curved and overlapping, suggesting wrinkles and folds in the cow and the
This help intensify the agony that Prometheus is going through. It should also be noted that Reubens uses dark color to signify the pain and the agony that Prometheus is going through. The asymmetry in the painting makes the painting to have an aspect of movement. The movement signifies the struggle between the eagle and
