Vincent Van Gogh’s self-portrait titled ‘Saint-Rémy ' (1853-1890) along with Edvard Munch’s ‘THE SCREAM’ 1893–1893 have created a historic influence on artwork in the present day. Based upon Alice Neel’s quote, “A good portrait… has something more than just accurate features. It has some other thing!” these artworks will be examined in regards to their description, analysis, interpretation and result in a concluding judgment. Both being famous pieces and vary in significance, these portraits will undergo further examination throughout this critical analysis using this quote and determining whether they really have “some other thing.” Within Vincent Van Gogh’s infamous Oil painting (65 cm x 54 cm) the main focus is of Vincent himself. The portrait contains Vincent surrounded by the dominant colours of pale turquoise and a shade of absinth green.

The medium used to create On the Avenue is oil paint and the composition of this painting well put together. Kenneth Miller’s use of elements such as color, light, and proportion has made this painting all the more wonderfully put together. There is a use of warm colors in his painting but most of the brightest colors are focused on the central figure in the painting. The color of the dress, coat and hat.

Beauty in Beliefs The art piece, Peaceable Kingdom by Edward Hicks has a medium of oil on canvas which consists of a lot of detail and meaning. This was a painting made in 1832 with a scale of 17 7/8 x 23 7/8 inches and now is part of the MET collection. Hicks intention with this painting was to get the idea of Isaiah 11:6 into image since it wasn 't going so well at the time of the paintings creation.

This triptych was painted by Peter Paul Rubens from 1610-11. (“The Elevation”, N.D) It is a beautiful oil on canvas. The perspective in this case is almost perfected and the artist makes great use of foreshortening with the position of Christ compared to the other figures in the painting. The lighting, while darker and starker than the previously mentioned triptych from the Renaissance period, is more natural and helps to amplify the somber atmosphere of the
Lastly, the two paintings use perspective, color, and light very similarly. In Death of General Wolfe, the artist, West, clearly and realistically paints the figures in the foreground and in the background in uniforms that would have been common during that time. Similarly, Giotto paints his figures in robes which were common, and what painters usually depicted their figures wearing.
