There is a unique beauty in the characters of his paintings and this style is the formed with the change and maturity of the painter. The unique features of Chen Hongshou’s paintings developed from free style in his early years, tough and elegant in his middle age and simple and startling in his late years. According to what Zhou Gongliang wrote, “When Zhang Hou started learning painting at young age, he did not care about the similarity in appearance. He would change the way of painting when he was copying.
It features the first full incarnation of what he later called a "zip," a vertical band of color. This motif would play a central role in many of his subsequent paintings. The painting 's title is an archaic derivation of the word "atonement," meaning, "the state of being made into one." For Newman, this unevenly painted zip on a flat field of color does not divide the canvas; rather, it merges both sides, drawing in the audience to intensely
Persistence of Memory It is probably Dali’s most famous painting and a perfect example of artist’s creative direction. Salvador Dali said once that his works are “hand painted dream photographs”Salvador Dali is the iconic Surrealist painter who became known worldwide both because his art and his eccentric and narcissistic personality.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti is an artist, who has hugely influenced the world’s history of art, depicting in his painting “Beata Beatrix” the issue topical both to him and the time he was living in. He questions the way the love was chanted by his predecessors and clearly states, “the love is what moves the sun and the light”. This paper will provide the analysis of the most quintessential painting of Rossetti, with the regards to its hidden symbolism and historico-cultural meaning. The multi-talented, temperamental like the Italian and dreamy like the English, Rossetti, being 18-year-old, became the head of "Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood", the members of which were inherently romantic. Together with William Holman Hunt, Millais, noticing blind imitation
As was the case of Velazquez but things have turned around for him. At the order of the king the Cross was painted onto Velazquez chest, which indicates that he was a member of the Order of Santiago’s and some say that king Philip IV had painted it himself (Kahr, 225). “Velazquez intended this huge and visually complex work, with its cunning contrasts of true spaces, mirrored spaces, and picture spaces, to elevate both himself and the profession of painting” (Kleiner, 2009). In the terms of the techniques Velazquez used on this great piece of painting. Velazquez first started to apply the colors, using different kinds of densities according to his desired effects he wants to apply for the object he wants to paint.
Picasso and Beuys Pablo Picasso is one of the most influential artist and main figure of cubism art. He was a very influential artist during his time and world renown I chose to research on him because of his character of being antagonistic towards people. The title of the piece of interest that I will talk about is Three Figures. According to the text the art piece is created using oil on canvas and was created on September 6, 1971. The piece has three figures and looks like the bodies are distorted.
As a viewer looking at all that black color usage, I got the notion of mystery and complexity, as if the artist had something he was trying to hide or perhaps could not express. The oblique direction, color black and the contour lines are used repeatedly throughout both the pieces however I found it interesting to note that only the color black was used on one half of “Portrait and a Dream” and that half felt the most chaotic, mysterious, and complex. The most commonly used artistic method was action painting by the artist. Action
He created an important example at every stage of his career from the classical works of the 1920s to the works produced in occupied Paris during the 1940s. Guernica (1937) by Picasso is one of the most famous paintings of all time. The painting reveals the importance of Spain, war, and most of all bullfighting. Picasso’s connection to his homeland of Spain is evident in Guernica, named after a small country town in north Spain that was the target of a terror bombing exercise by the
Starry Night and The Scream are two completely different types of artwork made by two different artists. Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch being those artists surely makes these pieces of art highly valuable and treasured. Starry Night was made by Van Gogh very late into his career and The Scream was made by Edvard Munch in his mid-career. Even though these two pieces of artwork are made by different people during different times of their career, these paintings look and have very similar aspects. Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh and The Scream by Edvard Munch both have similar formal elements including color, line, form, light, shape, texture, composition, etc.
