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.
Van Gogh is the king of light because he disperses a lot of colors on to this painting, making it look very illusive, or different. Another thing about this oil painting is the colors, which is yellow and blue, and they point out his work of art is classified as impressionism, which overall, “Van Gogh oil painting to display in their vision of reality” (oil painting-planet.com). Van Gogh also uses tone when creating light for his paintings because this is an example of his expression lines and which this also creates an arbitrary color scheme through the painting. Arbitrary is the artistic style that makes sense for this painting because this shows how the mixture of colors can become implied to its mediums. For this painting, the medium was oil, or oil pastel, but the point is that the colors has to blend in with the canvas which Van Gogh masters to create an impressive impasto painting.
By doing this, there was not a real story telling anymore, turning the painting into modern art. The final composition was transferred onto a huge canvas. Since they are made life-sized it is much more clear what the figures are inspired from. Picasso always refused telling his sources, but the police found out. Though he had not stolen Iberian figures from Le Louvre himself, he was aware of the wrong he had done.
Hiroshige uses the element of line but drawing all of the trees, house, etc. The tone in this painting is not as plain compared to the other painting of Hiroshige, because there are many different colours all around the the painting. The colours that Hiroshige uses are: green, yellow, red, white, orange, black and brown. The texture of the land it very detailed because the trees in the foreground are very detailed with every leaf as well as all of the mountain and hills with all of its trees there, along with the houses in and out of the mountain. The sky is a yellow orange colour with a light of black at the top and then some white spots around the sides of the mountain along with some fog.
throughout the painting we can view shading and shadowing that mesmerises and helps to fully appreciate the skill it takes to create. However, there are also parts of the portrait in which we see texture such as the texture of the many trees scattered throughout the landscape. An Additional example can be seen in the garments worn by the persons within the piece and the buildings in the background that seem be carved into. The principle balance may also be viewed upon further inspection. The way that the many trees wrap over the flowing river and the inhabitants of the landscape can be an example of symmetry.
Adding artificial color to the image was a new idea in his time and Van Gogh used it very well in most of his works. Here, as he described in one of his letters to his brother, the depiction consists just a friction of realism while everything else is impressionism or post-impressionism which he acquire in all of his later works. The colors of the sky, water and land in foreground almost looks the same when instead the real landscape had the colors of aquamarine, royal blue and mauve respectively. It is a mark of his artistic understanding about the scene to make it more soothing to eyes. The position of the stars in the sky is formative as the stars in the middle are the members of the constellation called Ursa Major or the Great Bear as artist mentioned it in his letter.
Theodore Earl Butler (1861-1936) was best known for his work during the American Impressionism movement. He was famous for his paintings, specifically watercolor. In 1861, Butler was born in Columbus, Ohio, where his father was a wealthy businessman. But unlike his father, Butler was not interested in a business career. After graduating from Marietta College in 1882, he moved to New York to study at the Art Students League from 1884 to 1886.
Within the painting, there is a dome shaped windmill directly in the center of the painting. The grass in the foreground has a high level of saturation, and the sky in the background has a low level of saturation. The second windmill is titled, Windmill, and it was made in 1917. The windmill is placed in the center of the painting, and is shaped like a cylinder. The scene takes
In this paper, I am going compare and contrast two different abstract artworks from two different art movements. Abstract art is non-figurative, non-objective art. After the 19th century, the artists started expressing their feeling in the different way, which was in the form of abstract art. Artist felt that the society and technology have developed so, they had to create new things. The two abstract art I am going compare and contrast is expressionism and surrealism.
One of those places is in the seventh circle, it’s a dark wooded area with strange black trees. Dante hears suffering cries that are actually coming from the trees themselves. The trees used to be living people, all those who took their own life. An artist with a somewhat different style who still does an excellent job with this illustration is John Flaxman. His drawing is almost cartoon like, and shows very organically shaped trees with bodies built into the trunks.
He painted the American gothic as a knock off from the modern American culture, so people can find it funny. But many people didn’t find it funny at all, they thought it was insulting to the people that worked very hard to own a luxurious house during the depression. Grant disagreed and said he wanted to show how hardworking people actually felt during the depression. He tightly cropped the man and the woman in the painting to represent the private life in a small town and the sad and humorless expression on their faces represented how they felt about their
The idea of a circus is seen in art and media is seen as dark and scary, while Mike Nichols paints it with a bit of darkness but also adds pops of color to convey lightness. Art is important to life, because it allows people to stimulate their imagination, and it allows people to express their
Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art. Stanton Macdonald-Wright applied thin layers of dry paint in wide strokes on the canvas to create flat surfaces of color. In some regions, the painter uses the technique of drybrush to create a scratchy texture that let the under layer of white paint to show through. This created the transition from dark and intense hues to lighter shades of that hue, giving the colors a transparent quality. Although chiaroscuro modeling is not used,
The Starry Night is an oil painting by Vincent van Gogh, painted in June 1889, in asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Like many other artist, Van Gogh’s artistic inclinations was based on an extremely popular subject in late-nineteenth, which is Landscapes. Although Van Gogh enjoy seeing farmers working on the countryside, his creations was rather on darker color side. But after he encountered works from the Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist in Paris, since then he had been incorporated their brighter color and style in his work, created his personal unique style, Post-Impressionism and carried over through the end of his life. On the other hand, Ginny Marsh’s Bowl was created in 2010.
In Albert Ronstadt‘s Rocky Mountains, Lander‘s Peak, he uses primary colors, blue for the sky and yellow for the grass and animals. He mixes the blue and yellow to create the secondary color green to paint the trees, grass, and in some of the Hilltops. He uses cool colors for the sky. I see tint in middle and on top of the mountains.To make the dark areas he shades them. The waterfall makes the painting feel calm and peaceful because he uses a monochromatic colors scheme.
