I later found out that Bierstadt loved to paint paintings that had dramatic weather, saturated light, colors that verged on expressionistic, rocky mountains, Oregon trails, virgin landscapes, scenes of native Americans, and a bit more. This painting may symbolize dramatic weather because of the setting and all of the details that’s in it. Bierstadt had gathered the materials he needed to paint a painting of a place that he could identify as Puget Sound. Bierstadt’s artwork “Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast” was successful. It was a great painting of a storm approaching some working people on land.
Yosemite Valley (El Capitan and Bridal Viel [sic] falls) (fig 1) was painted with oil on canvas, and like most of Hill’s work it has characteristics of the outdoors and nature. IT is uncertain as to when the landscape was made but it is believed that it was made around the 1870’s. The dimensions of this painting are 88 in HIGH x 72 in WIDE. The subject of this painting is obviously the beautiful Yosemite Valley, where the position of Bridal Veil Falls and the big vertical rock known; as El Capitan, represent the Yosemite Valley from the western entrances. Yosemite is popular for its big mountain rocks and huge waterfalls and this artist was able to capture that into his painting.
This allowed him to spend spring and fall creating drawings of the beautiful surroundings. It is said that “Art historians have noted that Thomson paintings from this period show the artist’s appreciation of the rugged beauty of Algonquin Park.” Tom Thompson had a great unique bold style with a great use of color that made his images painted stand out. Georgian Bay was also another Canadian landscape that influenced Tom Thompson’s
In order to properly understand and analyze this poem, the setting, the tone, and the mood must be looked at first. This poem takes place in what seems to be a forest, filled with animals. This is supported in the first line of the poem when Jeffers describes, “The deer were bounding like blown leaves”. Blown leaves are usually moving in the same direction very closely. The deer is moving live blown leaves in order to escape the fire that was behind them.
Perfective had been used since the Early Renaissance, was basically a geometric formula that solved the problem of how to draw three-dimensional objects in a two dimensional surface. Cezanne was not interested on creating depth in his paintings. He felt that the illusion of perspective denied the fact that a painting is a flat two-dimensional object. He preferred to flatten the space in his paintings to place more emphasis on their surface that way he could stress the difference between a painting and reality. He saw painting in a more abstract terms as the construction and arrangement of colors on a two dimensional surface.
The artistic style that I decided to write about was Impressionism. Impressionism is a 19th century art movement and a type of style in a painting that was originated in France in the 1860´s, it is characterized by a concern with depicting the visual impression of the movement, mostly in terms of the shifting effect of light and color. It seeks to catch a feeling rather than achieving accurate depiction. This style is significant and I chose this style because it changed the nature of the way people think about art this present day. If the people known as impressionists did not believed in themselves and wouldn´t have kept on following their dreams, we would not have a fine art called impressionism.
He uses a traditional set up of over-the-shoulder shots, while occasionally turning to a medium two-shot. Wes Anderson follows a common artistic “guideline” in defining themes that examine the symbolism of the colors that were used to depict the human and animals in the film. The use of autumn colors within the film enabled the appearance of a golden tone over the fields and in the sky; his choice of orangery autumn colors splashed with yellow and black leading towards a
The first element I want to start with is light. The word photography is derived from the Greek meaning: painting with light. Lighting is the key to photography, for it brings out texture, color, and shadows. It can cast a warm, dreamy feel or a hard, harsh light. Often photographers will simply photograph shadows such as a bug casting its shadow upon a leaf.
One interpretation is that Van Gogh depicts land as sad and the sky as happy. Van Gogh might be trying to say that it is impossible to escape death and death is better than life as he painted the sky in bright colors and the land in dark colors. Since Van Gogh was mentally unstable during the time The Starry Night was painted, he glorified death more than life. In his letter to his brother Theo, Van Gogh wrote, “I should not be surprised if you liked the Starry Night and the Ploughed Fields, there is a greater quiet about them than in the other canvases.” This quote by Van Gogh shows that he was very depressed and alone when he painted The Starry Night. Another interpretation is that, Van Gogh shows a sense of hope as the bright stars shine on the dark landscape.
