He looked at people, objects, nature and his composition with a sense of geometry in organization rather than focusing on their reality and translating that onto the canvas. This self-portrait is testimony to that process of simplification as he treats each part of the composition with broad brush strokes and fluid patterns and still brings out the purpose and mood with clarity. This portrait reveals Cézanne’s artistic personality reflected in his technique and treatment of space on the canvas. He painted the face with hues that illuminate a part of the face forming a strong sense of perspective. He uses a series of shades to contour the face instead of using contour lines.
Albert Bierstadt’s The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak (1863) is a oil on panel that means it has been created on wood, and the oil in the painting allows easy manipulation for the choice of color in the panting. However, David P. Bradley’s Indian Country Today (1997) is an acrylic on canvas that means it allows for multiple possibilities for color and technique. Bierstadt and Bradley paintings both have similar forms and choices of hue. In Bierstadt painting the use of form allows the viewer to distinguish between the mountains, trees, and the grass within the painting. In addition, the hue in Bierstadt’s painting also allows the viewer to perceive the difference between the grey color of the mountains to the hunter green of the trees and grass.

Overall, the unity of the painting comes primarily from the visual elements. On the sliding scale from blandness to chaos, this piece falls in the center of the spectrum. The quadrilaterals and the swath of green keep the painting interesting, and the soothing colors and horizontal lines make sure it doesn’t become too chaotic.

In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, he uses all different sorts of descriptive imagery as well as characterization of a various symbols throughout the entirety of the novel. The vivid and vivacious description of a rosebush in the first chapter isn’t only placed where it is to provide background information and historical context for the reader, it has a much deeper meaning than that, for it sets up a juxtaposition that will deem crucial to the plotline of the novel and it will foreshadow some of the future events that will occur in Hester and Pearl’s lives as well. The rosebush depicted by Hawthorne has various interpretations that enhance and embellish the meaning behind it as a symbol and the novel as a whole. The rosebush
William Merritt Chase (1849 –1916), a prolific artist from Illinois who trained first in New York and then in Munich, became a key American artist in the Impressionist movement. Often, Chase was unfairly overlooked because of his contemporaries, yet Chase was deserving of the same repute as he was “equally capable and talented” as some of the most famous expatriate artists of the time, such as John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, or Mary Cassatt. When viewing such works as Mrs. Chase in Prospect Park, it is clear to see that he merited more recognition as an artist who was truly unique and progressive during an already incredibly innovative movement. In order to comprehend the many facets of Chase’s work, it is helpful to examine one of his paintings.
An Investigation into the Juxtaposition of Minimalism, Realism and Fading through the Exploration of My Artworks and the Works of Ileana Hunter Realistic Minimalism is a theme used by the artist Ileana Hunter and my own works.

There are important aspects that are needed to be able to create Realistic Minimalistic art pieces such as shadows, intricate detailed work, fading and symbolism, which
All of them help in a way, especially the focus component. When you look at the portrait you immediately focus on the breast then the movement of her body structure, then the background which all comes together as unity. The media used would be drawing and painting while using the technique of the mosaic of pasting colored glass on the portrait in certain areas. I believe this approach was used because this could be Mackalene’s signature use or wanted to try a different approach and do something most artist don’t do.
