Bernini and Bellori had described the lighting of the Pantheon and Caravaggio’s paintings, respectively, back in the seventeenth century. Whereas, Bernini described the Pantheon lighting as light from above that enhances the beauty of any object or person within the space. On the other hand, Bellori described Caravaggio’s paintings as a great example of chiaroscuro, of which was achieved by using minimal artificial lighting just to expose the central figures and leaving the rest in shadow. Both Bernini and Bellori appreciates the lighting in the spaces and of the objects. This analysis agrees with both Bellori and Bernini with their description of the lighting and personal opinions of the lighting.
Overall, the unity of the painting comes primarily from the visual elements. On the sliding scale from blandness to chaos, this piece falls in the center of the spectrum. The quadrilaterals and the swath of green keep the painting interesting, and the soothing colors and horizontal lines make sure it doesn’t become too chaotic. The quadrilaterals, horizontal and vertical lines, and the analogous color scheme are the primary visual elements that come together to give this piece a feeling of visual
This helps to create a close up look at the view outside the window suggesting the intimacy between the artist and the habitat outside. This is because the focus is almost wholly given to the view outside the window. The view, which is embellished by the presence of flowers sitting on the windowsill, and creepers climbing on the railing, is located in the center of the composition. Despite the lack of a line of symmetry and any logic or geometric order, Matisse has been able to draw the attention of the viewer’s eye through the use of bright colours, almost fluorescent, which were used to portray the calm sea with its floating blue boats, and the sky tinted with the colours of the sunset. The calm sea at the horizon is painted with unreal tones of pink, sky blue, and violet whereas the boat, painted with tones of indigo, orange and green, seem to move along with the light breeze.
This inclusion of many details and pops of bright color add a sense of liveliness to the piece even in the seeming absence of action or excitement. Overall, I think Leys was very successful in his endeavor to make a historic painting that captures the truthfulness of the situation. His piece, King Henry V Courting Princess Catherine of Valois, was a clear example of his departure away from Romanticism and into the realm of Realism. He truly pioneered this switch to Realistic art in Belgium and served as an inspiration for many later painters who admired his drive and
The objects are also very balanced. By this I mean that they are laying in the centre of the canvas, rather than on the right side, left side,corner or any other. By looking at the objects,especially at the boxes which are brown (the one on the left-most and the other one on the right-most sides) you can see the brushstrokes. After Morandi used this kind of technique, it became an essential part compostions. It then showed that still life pieces don’t have to have smooth surfaces and perfect/equally distributed amount of paint.

Lighting may needed to photograph it, though natural, available light may often better”. (Edwards, 2006) 4.3 SHADOW Light is a creator of space effect in photographs.

The artwork is comprised of mostly geometric shapes which appears rigid and structured. The lines used in the foreground are vertical and as result it shows power and strength but also shows perspective. The lines are also very cluttered which creates rhythm and pattern. In the background, the shapes are organic and the lines are horizontal which appears spacious and balanced. Form is created by the use of value creating a more realistic, life-like painting.
