His painting, The Haywain, on a six foot canvas, depicts “a blue sky pushing out darker clouds, and invisible layer of moisture that makes everything glisten” (Davies 828). Constable completes the picture with smaller details such as the showing of the dog, the boat, and the harvesters. The picture does not create represent ideal beauty but the passionate feelings of a particular place. The picture itself is “a particular site presented in all of its heartfelt specificity” (Davies 828). The Haywain represented the life that John Constable knew and loved best (Barker).
Zoe Toscano has painted one of the most abstract painting I have seen. It describes the light and darkness in life and how we handle it. Life could be a mystery and Zoe’s painting of Die Trying helps tell the story on how life is lived. You start out full of life and vibrant. But sooner or later you see life for what it really is and you can see the darkness and despair.
Step back and observe two cityscapes both similar in subject matter and composition, however unique in style and technique. One canvas is on fire, burning with the influence of impressionistic characteristics while the other stands strong reflecting the glow of the artist’s personal sense of precision. Together, these two paintings show eras that contrast one another and artists who evolved traditional teachings by depicting cities in ways that are now seen as revolutionary. Joseph Mallord William Turner was an English painter in the 18th and 19th century. J.M.W.
Authors use very vivid word to illustrate the image they want to paint in your mind for you to understand. They want you to live the moment with them, so you know how the character’s situation is. “One of his eyes resembled of a vulture-a pale blue eye with a film over it” (355 Poe). Edgar Allan Poe uses an animal you know to create an image in your mind of the eye. Then he states how the eye has a film over it ,which they are not very clear, it looks hazy.
Cabeza made by Jean-Michel Basquiat is an abstract piece of artwork, and you can tell by looking at the black figure who looks like a disfigured human. This painting is very abstracted it uses a lot of exaggerated motions, and figures to define society. This painting Cabeza is made out of crayon using many colors like yellow, gold yellow, orange, black, white, orange brown, and also dark blue. Some parts of the painting shows how Basquiat either colored the paintings smooth after he was done coloring, but the texture of the painting from my view is very smooth like but intended on making it look like it was rough in some parts of the artwork. It’s very unique because the way the lines are set up in this painting it looked like Basquiat did
Starry Night is no different; many believe that it shows Van Gough’s struggle with illness, which is expressed in the dimness of the night. However, some believe that he is trying to convey the comfort and hope he felt looking out into the night with the warm glow of the city lights. Another interesting fact about this painting is the pattern that Van Gough used on
This large unframed painting was originally intended to be light but as his palette had become darker he used a mixture of red, maroon and black instead. A large black horizontal rectangle overlays a base colour of maroon with two slimmer vertical maroon rectangles enclosed inside, suggesting a window like structure. The black form is a solid colour and the edges have been feathered and blurred into the areas of the maroon. Different pigments have been blended into the maroon, turning the colour from a deep wine to a muted mauve with tones of red, giving a sense of depth. The canvas was a single sheet of cotton duck material; this was tightly stretched and primed with a base coat which he made from powdered pigments mixed with rabbit skin glue.
This piece of art has a very bold and vibrant color scheme, and has a vibrant and dramatic scene as well. Its medium is egg tempera on gessoed masonite. (Hunter Museum of Art). I would say that this painting has a more diagonal line to it because it looks like everything is kind of going in an upward motion. The perspective of Benton’s painting is a picture plane, which is basically the surface of a painting with a frame around it.
However, the attitude shifts during the last stanza from negative to positive. For instance, the text reads, “Either the Darkness alters—, Or something in the sight, Adjusts itself to Midnight—, And Life steps almost straight,” (Dickinson, lines 17-20). When the dark changes to light or when other objects adjust themselves to the darkness, life seems to come back together. In this stanza, the change from dark to light is presented as positive because it is the transition between not seeing and being in the clear. In “We grow accustomed to the Dark”, by Emily Dickinson, change is presented as mostly positive.
“The dazzling sunlight flamed along the luscious velvety grass, and a shot amid the rounded, distant purple peaks, and streamed in the bars of gold and crimson across the blue midst of the narrower upper Coollies” (par. 2)”. This example tells about the sunset in one long sentence. The explanation is so well written, it makes the readers feel there. The use of the words velvety, luscious, and dazzling bring the audience more into depth of the story.
Although, the light was not adequate for my taste. The journey started in the center room of the exhibit and right off the bat, I fell in love with the picture of the very first painting that we came across. Kahlo’s painting “Still Life with Parrot and Fruit” was unequivocally astonishing. The border of the painting was damaged, but that did not take anything away from the picture of the painting itself. The beautiful blue background set off an array of colors in the painting.
