The sun beams from the sky are lighting up a small area of the painting and the rest is dark and gloomy. The gloominess of the painting represents dark and depressing times while the brightness of the sky creeps through thick dark clouds. This represents heaven because heaven is so large and bright and amazing that even though life is hard and seems like the world is ending, there is always something greater out there. Personally, I love this painting. I really like how Dore paints that trees and valley dark because it really highlights the beams from the sun.
The brilliant hues of greens, purples, reds, and yellows that are strategically brushstroke on the piece give of a sense of impressionism. The characteristics of this piece capture the modern them of leisure activity. Caillebotte’s young cousin Zoe and brother Martial are depicted in this piece through the two characters. Both characters are dressed relaxed and have middle to upper class attire. The painting contains element of modern style through the scenery and garden.
The main color scheme of this painting is very muted and includes mainly earth tones such as grey and tan. Even his use of blue is very minimal and muted.

In the 18th century, another one of the greatest artist of all time, Vincent Van Gogh illustrated a very personal painting. The Starry Night is now one of the most widely known paintings in the world, but the story and meaning is not. Both artist used dark and grim themes when it came to their creations, and that is what draws the public to them.

Andrew Wyeth’s painting, Christina’s World shows a young woman in a empty field looking up at a grim farmhouse on a rustic summer day.
In art, color is very personal and subjective, and gives different meaning to different people. However, in this Van Gogh piece, it is clear what the colors are used for. The blue found in the man’s overalls suggests uneasiness, melancholy and distress. Blue is unanimously associated with sorrow, and it is clear that in this piece, the subject is suffering immensely.

Also the mood is pretty positive and I like how realistic it feels so I can also relate to it in that way. To me, the painting almost seems to be saying that the friendship of the people depicted in the picture is as fresh and indispensable as the water needed to make up a lake. Or that it’s crystal clear how relaxed the people in the painting are.

The lighting in Red Hills with Flowers is dim because dawn was approaching. One might feel like they could not walk or reach into this painting because they would not feel like it had the right space to do so. The lines are curved to shape the mountains and the center of the
However, the top fraction of the painting is more light because it represent the sun and the other half of this painting has a darkness which can be the shadows of the lights or to illustrate the big rocks. An intuition of my part, is that I think this painting is depiction of harmony in nature. Indeed, the "Cora Kneeling at the Feet of Tamenund" is a painting that reflects the scenery beauty of the Hudson
Of course, eventually new generations of audience have different interpretations of the meaning of these paintings, however these paintings have both keep there originally meaning. Starry Night relates mostly to the person of Van Gogh himself. His main purpose of this painting was to show his brother his lifestyle and the view he had while in jail.
