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. The paintings tell a story of the artist behind them, and this makes them feel so real.
Their paintings were also done with vivid colors and captured the details of the people in them. For example the masterpiece done by Leonardo Da Vinci capture the details and the beauty in each human being he painting with lots of attractive colors. He painted “The Last Supper” and “Mona Lisa”, both work of arts were created with such detail and focus on the face to show the people in it physical beauty. Another famous artist from the Renaissance was Michelangelo, he was the one who painted the ceiling in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel and sculpted David who was part of the Bible.
In the entire framework, the other figures are faced towards the bull as it is a peaceful figure in the painting. Furthermore, the surrealistic quality of Neruda and Picasso’s images produce vivid imagery relating to their own personal experiences. The poem and the painting venture into esoteric creations that allows the reader to have multiple interpretations on its meaning. Neruda and Picasso found inspiration from horrific situations that enabled them to enrich their work.
Edgar Degas was an impressionist artist but he preferred to call himself a realist or independent (Schenkel 1). He wanted his works to capture fleeting moments in the lower of modern setting (Schenkel 1). The work he preferred to do were paintings of theaters and cafes illuminated by artificial light (Schenkel 1). He used the artificial lights to contour his figures (Schenklel 1). Edgar Degas was intrigued by the human figure and how he could capture the body in unusual positions (Edgar Degas Biography, Art, Analysis of Work 1).
One of the most famous veristic artist was Salvador Dali, who drew such beautiful scenes of fantastical creatures, melting clocks and some other elements. It is called veristic, meaning realistic, but this style is a type of drawing that is creative, the view into the fantasy world that has no connection to the reality. This type of surrealism can bring the viewer, then artist’s fantasy world, which is quite detailed because the artist tries to not filter parts that are unconscious. With a detailed painting, the viewer can have a cleaner view to the artist’s dream world, which then can interpret his/her wishes.
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.
This sculpture is a mixture of female and male traits; its idea is to describe the realism without mythical and big muscles as was found in the Hellenistic period. Donatello’s David shows realism more than it does an ideal condition of man as in the Greek Hellenistic period. There are a few ways to tell. First, David’s skinny body and his arrogant expression reveal a confident man and anon-mythical expression that would not have been made as artwork during the Hellenistic period.
The mirror which is depicted on the left-hand side of the painting stands out because of the contrast of the black frame around the mirror and the light blue walls. This effect by Degas allows him to draw your eyes to the different sections of the painting. As you look in the mirror, you will see the reflection of a window which Degas creates an image of an urban city. This image in the mirror not only adds depth to the painting, but further emphasizes the urban and modern scene that Degas is trying to
“It is often quoted that, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, like the beauty in the reclining female nude ‘Titian’ (1485-1576) or the heroic ‘David’ by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564). They are more than sum of their parts; they reflect very specific notions of beauty. We find more than pearly ‘flesh’ in Titian. We see moral code, notably the expression of virginity, chastity and fidelity. The fiery intensity of David’s facial expression exemplifies the terribilità (emotional intensity) and the whole figure demonstrates his mastery of the male nude.
While both abstract and realistic depictions of the human form play important roles in performing arts, I prefer accurate arts of human body more. To me, the human figure is so perfect and beautiful that it deserves to be portrayed and recorded eternally. A painting or sculpture about human beings never fails to amaze me. There is a different kind of body art that I want to introduce. Alexa Meade is an American artist who invented a new way to pursue arts using human bodies and transforming them into a painting.
The rest of the colors used in the painting are dark browns, greens, and grey hues. When you look real close at the painting you can see the details of each brushstroke which are short in length, messy, and almost blurry in some areas which allude to create differences in lighting effects which is representative of an Impressionistic painting. Because there is a distinctive outline of the woman’s form the painting would be representative of the Post-Impressionistic Era, yet the flowers and tree as well as the hem of her dress are more blurry which is consistent with the Impressionistic Era. Francis Davis Millet is classified as an American Academic Classicist. He has an advanced education and traveled much of his life.
All the lines are smooth and deliberate, surrounded by diluted colours which all fall into a gorgeous, aesthetically pleasing composition that is directly in the middle of the borders between fantasy and reality. Gonsalves’ style is very modern because of the use of block-like colours and little fine detail and it is also quite unique due to the genre and the way Gonsalves draws his human figures. In conclusion, I love Rob Gonsalves’ work because of the genius illusionistic techniques he has managed to create and his ability to pull a viewer into a dreamlike story with only a painting of one
Titian can paint reclining nudes with a virtuosity not found in many, or any, other painters of the Renaissance and beyond. Titian has been described as a master of paint and color to create seductive compositions. In his other dramatic scenes too of the Poesie, such as Perseus and Andromeda, he still provides a contrived and beautiful body spread in the best way to show of her figure. In Europa, he abandons this and he must do it for a reason. She is not sexually idealized; instead she is awkwardly flung about with her torso so scrunched up that any feminine curve that once resided here is now erased in folds of skin and fat.
If you haven’t figured it out from the title, this is a photograph of a butterfly that was later painted. The piece is very balanced and asymmetrical, causing it to be very simple looking at first. When you compare this artwork with the other displays, it actually really stands out. The reason as to why it stands out is because this is the brightest and most colorful piece in the art collection. The value of this piece consists of mostly dark colors with the use of light colors to create a darker, higher contrasted look.
