As mentioned previously, Mountains and Sea is an abstraction. As this painting is non-objective, there is not much indication as to what the composition depicts. The only indication of its contents is the painting’s title. The dominant elements are the sprawls of color across the canvas. The painting in done in pale colors.
Since there is only little fill light used in the back of the room, it is low-key lighting. The low-key lighting produces the overall gloomy atmosphere in this scene. The use of lighting contributes to this scene by using minimal lighting making it more of an intense scene when the viewers are watching it. The way they used the low key lighting is very powerful because it leaves the
Bright oranges and reds are almost, but not quite, dominated by shades of blue. The warm and cool colors balance each other out. There are small areas of gray and one little patch of a comforting yellow. The form of this piece is obviously a very important element, considering the painting itself even has a form and is not a sculpture. It’s also important to note that the two devices were once in motion and have been frozen in time, this is not
The painting that started this change is called Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon, however this was not the original title given by Picasso, but by the purchaser of the painting. Immediate reactions of art connoisseurs, when seeing the composition, can be summarized in a few words: aggression, ugly, hideous and so on. The colours are fighting each other, in conflict, creating contrast that is not
there is also something different about the story such as the techniques that make it easier to show the subject. In this paragraph I will be talking about how the story and photograph have a similar technique. A technique that is similar and used throughout the story is figurative language. This is shown in the caption of the photograph when it says, “As the only window to the future”. This is an example of a figurative language because there aren’t windows that lead to your future.
Unlike painting with light and aesthetically pleasing colours, van Gogh would paint with greys. His artworks were not selling and were rejected by the public. He started drinking and smoking because of his increasing depression but was still motivated to paint He brightened his colour palette and with several other artists
Exemplified by the landscape paintings of painter (1840-1926), artistic movement targeted on the virtually not possible task of capturing fugitive moments of sunshine and color. Introduced non-naturalist color schemes, and loose - typically extremely rough-textured - proficiency. Close-up several Impressionist paintings were unidentifiable. extremely less-traveled with the final public and therefore the arts authorities, though extremely rated by different fashionable artists, dealers and collectors. Eventually became the world's most famed painting movement.
Van Gogh’s ‘’Starry Night’’ has more definite figures as opposed to Munch’s the ‘’The Scream’’. The human figure on the foreground leaves one wondering if it is a man or a woman. Each painting have a fluid brush stroke style which gives that distorted look to it and motion seems to be prevalent in each piece. Though the scream was supposed to show the sun setting, still, it’s ushering in to the dark. Both paintings are also inspired by true personal experiences by the artists.
Upon looking at the Matisse’s Bonheur de Vivre we see that ultimate departure. My interpretation is of this painting is that it is certainly a contrast with bright colors while at the same time also having a somewhat distorted view of reality and of the human form. This painting was certainly significant in making a bold statement of the human form as well as of human existence being viewed as being leisurely and indulgent. The second painting, could be seen as a departure, just as discussed taking the dehumanization to a different level. The distortion is far more angular and of course, as noted above, the background follows this distortion and further emphasizes this style of
Romanesque Manuscripts - the manuscripts produced during this period had some of the best Romanesque style paintings since they were not restricted by the fresco medium or by walls and lack luster paint. It is highly detailed and the pictures were important for portraying the message since many people at that time still cannot read or write. The majority of illuminated manuscripts were of religious matter and the bible is what is widely produced wherein the monasteries were the centers of production. The paintings used intense and eye catching colors: the characters had vivid clothes in contrast to a simple background. The embellishment with gold or silver gave the manuscripts the impression that the page had been literally illuminated.
