Poe’s use of imagery in the short story is powerful and shows itself in multiple parts of the story. When Poe writes they “arrived at a deep crypt” (Poe) and “the foulness of the air caused out flambeaux rather to glow than flame” (Poe), the reader can write out an image to imagine what the scenery of the story is looking like at the moment. The feel, touch, smell, etc. is what Poe did really well when creating these images. Poe’s distinct explanations of imagery really put images into the readers head.
John Hanley Visual Communication year 2 semester 1 k00143151 Surrealism and Design essay. Oscar dominguez's Wheelbarrow. Oscar Dominguez’s “wheelbarrow” is a fascinating example of a surrealist piece art. The everyday object is padded with the most luxurious looking satin.

Tennyson captures Iphigenia by using descriptive and rhythmic word choices in the poem that paints a picture of Iphigenia to the readers. Tiepolo captures Iphigenia by the layout of the painting that makes people see and feel Iphigenia 's story without words to tell it. Commonalities that are present in the poem and the painting help put in perspective of the deep connection between literature and paintings. “Iphigenia” by Alfred Lord Tennyson and The Sacrifice of Iphigenia by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo both give off the same thoughts and feelings about Iphigenia and her story, one in literature form and the other in an art form. In the poem “Iphigenia” by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Tennyson uses literature to paint a vivid picture of Iphigenia as defenseless and broken down To do this he applies a rhythmic style and powerful words to his poem.
This shows the juxtaposition of Incompatible objects that was a key component of the surrealist era. When the man arrives at the inn there is a lot of eye threatening imagery that relates to darkness. In this story there is a lot of frost imagery and explains the difference between the conscious and subconscious with the scene of the mirror. During this story he is narrating the events through surrealist imagery such as dream imagery and there is a sense of rupture when he shows the duet of thorns and violent. He paints the picture of the woman with her eyes on a tray and the sense of damage to the eyes is a Freudian idea and links in with the previous works of Dali and Buñuel.
Henry Mayhew's London Labour and the London Poor (hereafter London Labour) is a journalistic work that describes the living conditions of the working street-folk and the poor in mid-19th century London. Whilst creating vivid impressions of metropolitan street-life, the text also tries to arrange a part of the population unknown to the middle and upper classes into systematic order. Personal narratives alternate with numbers, tables and statistics. On an abstract level, there is a dichotomy between subjective and objective forms of representation, which makes it hard to pin down the text as either fact or fiction. Several critics take this dichotomy as a starting point to examine the status or relevance of London Labour as a historical document.
NIGHTHAWKS During the late 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, many cultural and social changes were arising in the United States. These changes were portrayed through an art form called American Realism, which attempted to depict the ordinary American life at home during different time periods. Edward Hopper became a well-known realist painter who displayed many common place scenes in his work, that capture the isolation of city life. In 1942, following the Pearl Harbor bombing, he painted his famous Nighthawks painting, which displayed the common themes of loneliness and in this case, wartime isolation, and uses Kairos, along with contrasting dark and light colors and four mysterious individuals, to bring out the deeper messages
It is a dark scene that gives off feelings of sadness, desperation, and grief. The way Rubens did the lighting for this painting works to put a spotlight on the action. The foreground is brightly illuminated to draw the viewers’ attention to the main action in the painting. While the background does its job of showing its viewers that this scene is taking place in a city street, it is clear that it is
A friend had taken his life in the city, so as the artist returned, he focused on what he referred to as the ‘real Paris.’ With this new perspective, he drew subjects that resided in places such as psychiatric hospitals and homeless shelters. This period of Picasso’s paintings is accurately called the ‘Blue Period’ because of the content of his work and that they are in many different shades and hues of the color itself. Sandra explained that this is when Picasso really began to gain popularity with the upper class because it was so different from the “cupcake and happy” paintings of Monet, Renoir, and other impressionist painters. Sandra also emphasized that Picasso “captured the psychology of the character in the painting” rather than just having a painting of the form, he was able to portray what was happening
The painting exhibits Cabrera’s chief subject on most of his works, Sabel. The artist emphasized the face of Sabel, which is plain but full of emotions. He made use of primary and bright colors contrasted with dark background directing the eyes of the viewers to Sabel’s face. At first look, the work has an impression of grief, loneliness, and madness. The lines are geometric and abstracted, arranged in a diagonal and curvilinear manner.
How visual semantics are being used to convey and communicate the sensibility of concepts in the postmodern times with traditional techniques of art. The citizens of Pakistan have been directly or indirectly added to the instability and destruction of the economy. Artists have been using the social and political factors when highlighting the problems of Pakistan in their art practice. ‘Socio-political
