Jan van Eyck made an impression with me when we covered him and class and The Portrait of a Man in a Red Turban is one of my favorites as well. I chose this one mainly because of how busy these paintings are as well as the contrast between the left and right on the right panel. The more I researched Crucifixion; The Last Judgment, the more interested I became. According to the Met Museum, the Crucifixion panel is presented as a first hand account. The left panel seems to have three different scene in one, starting from the top down. The top portion shows Jesus be crucified along with who I believe are the two these the gospels mention Jesus be crucified with. The top portion of the panel doesn 't show much detail in the background. This brings the attention forward to Jesus and then the two thieves. Jesus is the only one that facing the viewer straight forward everyone else is turned away at an angle. The bottom shows two clusters of people. The ones closer to the crucifixion seem to be all men. These men seem unfazed but the crucifixions taking place. The second grouping of people consist of women, with the Virgin Marry among them. I believe that Marry is the women in the blue robe, surrounded by three women that also seem to be grieving the loss with her. I believe that Marry is the women in blue because in class we learned she 's almost always in a blue robe. The robe covers most of her body and …show more content…
The Last Judgment panel of The Crucifixion; The Last Judgment, by Jan Van Eyck also seems to be separated in three sections as well. From top to bottom is depicts heaven, earth and then hell at the bottom. The top shows Jesus looking majestical along with other angles. The way that this panel is set up also shows the importance of the figures. Jesus is top and center and is also one of the biggest figures on the painting, the Archangel is also depicted on the same scale of Jesus but his wingspan makes him look larger.

Jesus has a yellow glow around his hands and feet that emphasize his puncture wounds from the crucifixion. Mary and John the Baptist are to his left and right, looking up to Jesus. The angels surrounding Jesus seem to be playing instruments and two are holding up the cross. 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. It shows the Archangel Michael standing right over death. To Michaels right it shows people rising from their graves. On his left is shows the rippling current of the ocean. Michael drew my eye first in the picture. His

When I analyze this painting, my eyes are drawn to the building in the bottom left which seems to resemble a church. It has a white steeple and roof line along with light red brick for the walls. The color, style, size, and position of this particular building sets it apart from the rest of the buildings which all seem to blend together along the composition.

In the picture you can see a man facing his back towards the viewers, he is also wielding a Scythe which represents the grim reaper symbolizing death.

Highly decorative scenes of the damned in agony, the saved ascending to heaven and a simple, yet historic note that reads “Gislebertus hoc fecit” which translates to “Gislebertus made this” (Stokstad and Cothern, 2013), makes the Last Judgment Tympanum at Autun, an important piece of artwork during the Romanesque period.

“The Calling of Saint Matthew” by Caravaggio was the Counter-Reformation movement. Light pours in above Christ’s head on the right and reveals stunning detail in the painting.

The wide space between the man and woman has no major distractions within in, the artist could have filled that space with some interesting art, but chose not to because it would have drawn the viewers’ attention away from the woman and man.
