Dexter’s Four Robes geometric shapes, such as triangles, polygons, pentagons, rectangles, and squares are used in this painting. While using geometric shapes to add a human element to the painting Jim Dine also uses organic shapes to simulate the natural curve in the human
This gives the sense of stability in the center because the texture is consistent throughout. The matte central area further contrasts the sparely colored sky and lower corners, emphasizing their lack of pigment. Because of this lack of pigment, the sky comparatively seems much more unstable than the landscape, and even other parts of the
The Gerome is 31 ¾ inches long and 26 inches wide, while the Cranach is 54 inches long and 15 ½ inches wide. The height of the Cranach makes the painting more lifelike, because it is almost as if the painting is drawn to scale. Both works portray soldiers. Through an analysis of elements and principles of art in both paintings, I will conduct a comparative analysis to show the similarities and differences in the way the soldiers are portrayed. The first design element that will be discussed is color.
It 's painted in non traditional colors that are not right, they are the complementary colors to the normal colors in the flag. Once you stare at them long enough you become desensitized to these colors so when you look at the grayscale flag you only see the primary colors red, white, and blue. The artist also helps to draw your focus from top to bottom in a couple of ways. Firstly he uses vertical strokes in the gray area to help you start looking at the work in a vertical manner. He then has the grayscale flag popped out from the original painting, basically a smaller canvas stacked on a larger canvas.
The fold and fabric as well as the contour lines exhibit in the images of the horse clearly create a sense of movement to viewers. The artist uses several hues of the spectrum including red, orange, yellow, green and blue colors to create a sense of warmness and coolness of his painting. The intensity of some colors the artist chose to use attract viewers’ psychological understanding. The artist employs a several elements of art to create a focal point of the painting. The focal point of this painting is Don Francisco Vasquez de Coronado.
The second difference seen is in the way that these paintings are done. For instance, The Sower uses expressive line throughout the entire drawing. In the field, it can be noticed that the colors are overlapped. Van Gogh is known for using expressive line in his work, which can also be seen in his other painting named Starry Night. Veteran in a New Field doesn’t use expressive line.
This diptych like most diptych is not large, each panel stands 22 ¼ by 7 ⅔ inches. Jan van Eyck painted Christ’s sacrifice for the salvation of mankind and the Last Judgment. Jan van Eyck painted both secular, religious art as well as portraits and altarpieces. According to Wikipedia his style came from International Gothic, but he focused mostly on naturalism and realism. As we learned in class, Van Eyck mostly used oil, because it does not dries
Melvin Williams Arth 1381 Professor Zalman 13 November 2014 Visual Analysis The painting, The Basket Chair c.1885 by Berth Morisot, and the painting The Orange Trees c. 1878 by Gustave Caillebotte, are both magnificent and interesting pieces that I got the opportunity to see. The paintings are both wonderful pieces and their composition overall is very impressive. Both paintings have different aspects in the way the artist displayed modernism, formal characteristics, class and gender, and the subject matter of the painting itself. These are great distinctions between Berth Morisot’s The Basket Chair, and Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, but both paintings have their own distinctive style and sense of modernism that inspired the painters’
The beads cause the board to have a rougher aspect that varies across the board. This is important because all of the beads correlate and tell some history of the Luba people. In addition, all the characters are carved into the wood rather than attaching beads. In the unknown artwork, texture is present in the form of reliefs. The artist carved reliefs that represent characters on the board and they protrude off the board.
Both artists use a significant style of the renaissance period where the chosen colors help in moderating the hues of the surrounding (Sayre, 2012). Therefore, both the authors were meant to achieve the theme of simplicity while showing substantial affluence. Additionally, both forms in the two paintings seem to be static as though they posed for the painter when making the drawing (Emison,
The overall theme of the piece seems to be very peaceful and exciting. Hassam uses a few visual elements of form to support his painting. He uses actual line to define shapes such as the side of the mountain. He indicates depth by causing the area that is
