A beautiful portrait of the fair is built with Larson’s detailed depictions of “the buildings, waterways, and scenery” (Larson 274) within this spectacle. The clear pictures painted in the reader’s mind transports them to this wonder-filled attraction. However, more disturbing images are depicted in subtle ways, like the fact that Holmes “often smelled vaguely of chemicals” (Larson 46.) An image of horror conjures within the mind of the reader at this seemingly minuscule detail. The beauty and novelty of fair existing parallel to the grotesque nature of Holmes’ past times can only be excused as pure and unadulterated dramatic irony.
Pollocks technique was effortlessly performative as he would air paint and walk around canvasses on the floor. The action paining style embraced the spontaneity of applying paint to a canvas; whereas traditional painting styles embraced the careful application of paints to a canvas. This is what made Pollocks art vulnerable to criticism It was unapologetically different. The drip painting style was another abstract art form that Pollock heavily embraced. Instead of simply using a paint brush and a palette, he would drip and pour paint on a canvas and use many different instruments to substitute the traditional painting brush.
The famous balcony scene in Act III exhibits this theme of appearance versus reality exquisitely. Although Edmond Rostand's attitude toward this theme has been positive so far, in Act IV we observe a subtle change of attitude towards the theme. When De Guiche boasts of his subterfuge during the battle, Rostand considers his lies extremely contemptible and makes his feelings
The luxurious castle with a dining room, piano, and servants are few of the factors that represent the status of the Medina family (Corman, 1961). In contrast, the narrator lives in a prison with a wooden floor, circular pit, and received food and water occasionally (Poe, 9 and 18). The narrator even clarified that, the water “...must have been drugged—for scarcely had I drunk, before I became irresistibly drowsy (Poe, 10).” This illustrates the distinct lifestyles of the characters. As a result, the setting of the castle creates a romantic mood. For example, when Nicholas shows Francis Elizabeth’s room it consists of her paintings, a stately bed, and expensive furniture that represents his love for his dead wife.
One of his art work which depicted the mass-production of Campbell Soup cans and Coke bottles, captured the clean-edge look by commercially manufactured object, this artworks make him rises in fame. This causes his art to be mass produced objects. During that time, there was many critics over the banal subject matter. Abstract Expressionists
London is a commonly utilized backdrop for novels, plays and films. The monuments make for stunning backgrounds in modern cinematography while the history and character of the city add meaning and symbolism to a number of works and the works, in turn, contribute to the reputation of London. In Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dorian is a beautiful young man with an increasingly corrupted soul as he is seduced by the city. The story of his decay takes place in two famous parts of London - the West End, known for its wealth and opulence and the East End, better known for its poverty and opium. The two sides of the city mirror the two sides of Dorian himself.
Indeed, Dicken’s stories were just one facet of the 19th century public’s inclination to the literary pieces that were centralized on lynching, bloodshed, and felony. Actually, the 1842 edition of the Punch Magazine jokingly stated that “Murder is, doubtless, a very shocking offence; nevertheless, as what is done is not to be undone, let us make our money out of it”. Despite its purpose to evoke humor amongst its readers, the fact still remains that the 19th century readers and audiences enjoyed the dire and malevolent aspect of humanity. With attention to that, it was normal for people at that time to write stories and to conduct plays that were based on real- life murders and crimes. An example was the case of Maria Marten.
We also see that romantic painters were principally partial to showing the effects light in their paintings which is one of the most obvious visible cues that shows this as a piece done during the romantic period. Another major theme evident in this painting is revolution. While this painting was made to show the beauty in nature and the awesome power of the sea, it was also created in revolt to the slave trade. This is apparent in the images of horror depicted that ensures the viewer feels sorrow and disgust in this practice. Turner does a great job depicting the evils of the salve trade by showing the bodies that have been cast over and destined to drown in the water.
As I mentioned before about the middle ages and medieval times being dark, plain and in my opinion a tad bit boring. In the time of the Renaissance it was a new beginning to everyone. This meant things had to be colorful and full of life. They also rediscovered the beauty and art of the human body. Artist were painting portraits of people while they were nude in order to capture their physical beauty.
It depicts a view from his asylum room, just before sunrise. It is a vibrant work of art that uses thick, expressive brushstrokes, and focuses on the shades of blue, green, and yellow. It is an abstraction painting or one made from imagination. For a night sky, the painting is quite bright, which is probably because of the glow from the celestial bodies. Personally, I think it differs from Bain á la Grenouillére, in a way that it captivates the attention of the viewer in a more emotional
