There are several reoccurring brush strokes and a limited amount of color which create a great mix of warm and cool tones. If you look to the top left of the portrait you should notice a diagonal stroke that makes its way through the whole piece. The painting centers on the model’s eye to create an emotional connection. The line work in this painting is used to outline the entire scene. The lines in the background all seem to fan out but point in towards to model forcing you to focus on her being the center of attention.
The different types of color panels make it appear that the subject of the painting blend into and become one with her environment. The highly individual spatial composition is full of mystique atmosphere. It is worth noting that Gustav Klimt has deliberately avoided portraying feet in the pictures of his golden period. However, Klimt shows her in a full-frontal pose in this portraiture. Below the hem of her colorful patterned dress are her legs, the white stocking, and the kitten heel
In his paintings, the characters have strange appearance: big head and short body. As we know, the methods selected by artists usually have something to do with their experiences, opinions and philosophies. Their life perspective are shaped by their special time and environment and determines the way they view the world---- It is what they feel. So life is not simple records of the objective world, but a mental world. From the above analysis we can see that the grotesque figures in Chen Hongshou’s paintings reflect his mentality and wild emotion.
Marie Denise Villers painted the Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes. The glowing image of this beautiful young woman focuses all the attention. The colors used in this painting are darker, which cast on the more somber scenes, whereas the colors used in The Love Letter are pastels and golden which highlight the happiness and joyful scenes. The light source is barely noticeable in The Love Letter, but in Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes the light source is visible. The light source in Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes comes through a cracked window and outside there is a man and women who seem to be in a relationship which directly contrasts The Love Letter.
He reason why her dress is red is to let the person know she is the main point of of the picture in the vibrant blues and greens and brown. The mood of the painting can be described as pleasant which demonstrates the idea even though she is beautiful and beauty is around her, she is still lonely and that’s what’s making her sad. A thematic statement could be is that beauty is pleasant but but can make a person self-centered. In the background we see a wall with a river and landscape to show how tall and gorgeous these mountains are. Another detail is that she is standing in a patch of flowers with doves circling her.
What’s most captivating in this painting is not all the gold but rather the subtle details Klimt has included with great attention to them. Klimt shows distinct visual differences between the two figures. The woman wears a wreath of flowers in her hair whilst the man’s is of laurels, which is often seen as a symbol of conquest or achievement. The pattern on his robe is made out of white, gray and black rectangular shapes, whereas the woman’s dress is made up of circular and oval shapes of different colorful shades that clearly evoke femininity. Despite all those differences, both figures are cloaked in the same garment, which shows that Klimt is saying although they’re different, there 's connection that 's balanced between the two subjects.
The setting of the story, the facial expressions on those who are in the painting, and what are the clothing articles that shown in the painting and their color. These things are what make the story come together in the viewer's mind, they are small things and objects, but they make the whole story make sense. I will be focusing on these aspects when discussing the paintings. The first piece of art that I will be discussing
The sky has been painted in a soft, pale blue which gives the effect of a nice day, from this it means the men are not raining from the sky like droplets but they are floating still in the air in a specific order; they are all evenly aligned but although he has painted the men the same the faces are all different. In both Criste and Magritte’s images they have used realistic colours and objects but placed them in unfamiliar ways to trick the mind and make us question. ‘Golconda 1953’ In the painting ‘The face of Mae West Salvador’, Dali demonstrates the technique of illusion to create a face. The idea of what is suppose to be room with curtains; steps; a chair; a table and pictures hung on the wall are giving the vision of a human face because of the way it is laid across the canvas. ‘The face of Mae West Salvador 1935’ Perpetuance of Vice by Criste is another masterpiece of illusion, the way he has painted the smoke in addition the repetition and placement of the other cigarettes create an image of a ladies profile smoking a cigarette.
In the painting the drapes are used to point out the painter`s departure from the traditional form of painting. In the era of Renaissance, the painters perfected the ideal of the human form but Picasso approach to the distortion of the ideal human form led to the remarkable work of art . The painting can be seen as a reflection of the artist`s fear of venereal disease, his perception of mysteriousness of sexual energy and his private affairs with women. The painting consists of an element of psychological anxiety communicated by the masked figures. The effort of labour that Picasso indulged in painting Les Demoiselles D Avignon which is although said to be incomplete work has definitely led to a certain sense of liberation of the artist through his work ,Les Demoiselles DAvignon.
By placing the metaphor in his first line it shows the reader that her beauty is in her confidence so even though he continues to describing her, the she knows that her confidence show more beauty that her physical appearance. He describes her beauty as “like the night/ of cloudless climes and starry skies” mixing imagery and simile together to form a description that shows her as a pale and beautiful. The description forms a such an image because he compares her with the night, which hides the light of the sun thus taking away the tan skin tone from people 's heads, and the clouds which are usually white. The imagery also works comparing her to the “starry skies” making her appear beautiful. In the second part of the poem Lord Byron’s expresses that one of the reasons she is so beautiful is the small physical features like her “waves in every raven tress” showing more imagery to describe her curly black hair.
