The painting done by Jim Dine called Dexter’s Four Robes and the painting by James Lechay called Sky, Sea and Samos are two paintings that are vastly different, but both exhibit similar and different Elements and Principles of Design. I will analysis both paintings and compare as well as contrast the similarities and differences of each painting. I will than explain my opinion on which painting I believed is more visually appealing and what I liked and disliked about each painting. The Elements of art that I will be comparing as well as contrasting are Lines, Shapes, and Colors. The Principles of Design that I will be comparing and contrasting are Emphasis and Subordination.
His approach to color was both individual and systematic: “Marc also devised a color symbolism to modulate the moods of this flow: blue was ‘severe’ and ‘spiritual’; yellow, ‘gentle’ and ‘sensual’; red, ‘brutal’ and ‘heavy.’” (Hal Foster et al., p. 99) This language is represented in his Large Blue Horses (1911) through the titular blue horses, the red mountains, and the yellow ground. Marc brings color to its most elemental, favoring primary colors and using instinctive associative meanings. Though his work is certainly expressionist through having color represent emotion, Marc uses a systematic expressionism in which he teaches the viewer to read and understand his paintings. Through this technique, Marc creates works that are both highly individual, and able to be understood by the masses, at least partially achieving the goals of both Matisse and Signac, and creating a new language of color in the process. Overall, these three artists approach color with different techniques and goals, though ultimately all creating new languages for avant-garde painters to
His influences were from Surrealism and Cubism. His depictions of the unconscious derived from Surrealism and the use of picture spacing was obtained from Cubism. (Surrealism and Cubism) The Deep is valuable because it displays extraordinary artistic techniques, it provides several possible interpretations regarding his personal life, and yet it is relatable to viewers’ lives, given the complex nature of the painting. Pollack uses artistic techniques that are unique. He used a dripping method that other artists had not used before that time frame.
Furthermore, his belief was focused that one needs to participate in negative emotions to relieve the pain that he or she feels. Edgar Allan Poe creates a character in desperate need of aid in “The Fall of the House of Usher,” utilizing an aspect of art: music, to try and relieve Roderick of the pain he is dealing with a the solution to his suffering, but does not provide permanent relief. Art in “The Fall of the House of Usher” is structured to have Roderick arouse feelings of cheerfulness as he listens to music. For instance, his mental state was abnormal based on the narrator 's initial description, “He suffered much from a morbid acuteness of the senses; the most insipid food was alone endurable...could wear only garments of certain texture...flowers were oppressive...tortured by a faint light...and these from stringed instruments, which did not inspire him with horror” (Poe 164). The narrator 's depiction of Roderick portrays him
1. Describe the major art project of Jacob Lawrence; discuss his style, theme, purpose, materials, and the reason why his work is so important to the Harlem Renaissance. • The major art project of Jacob Lawrence that he is best known for is the “Migration Series” which was originally entitled “Migration of the Negro”. Lawrence is known for his dynamic cubism style which is an abstract art. In addition, his paintings showed a comparison of black and brown v. vivid colors.
It is suggested that Van Gogh painted with such contrasting elements to reflect on the pain and moods he was in during this time. He was unconcerned with how others perceived his paintings, he just wanted to paint. Many art media critics loathed his work; they complained his paintings lacked creativity and were incomprehensible. Some even went a far as to categorize his work as philistine. Works such as “Starry Night” and “Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear” which were created during his stay at a psychiatric mental facility he checked himself into.
My final project consists of two self-portraits, each which portrays the influence of the historical art movements called Impressionism and Analytic Cubism. Among the numerous art mediums, I chose acrylic paint, and my inspiration for painting in an Impressionist style comes from Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. For my analytical cubism painting my inspiration came from both Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque with their emphasis on geometrical shapes. According to Gardner, Impressionism was an art movement born in late-19th-century in Paris (Gardner 687). Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir were some of the few artists to experiment with the new artistic style that was once rejected from society.
If it seems too old or too fake, take a clean makeup sponge and with small touches, soften the look. Or, if it doesn’t look old enough, take the matte eyeshadow and use it to deepen the lines. Then take the highlighter, and a proper brush with it. It can be a fan or a crease shadow brush, but there are also special artistic brushes just for highlighting. If there aren’t any, use the sharp part of a clean makeup sponge.
Also use of simple compositions and solid shapes, Nguyen Sang’ s oil paintings has those melodramatic spaces in it. Moreover in his painting they mostly contain of powerful, bright colours that follow a theme, like red, green, gold, light brown, yellow. And his red, yellow and orange glitter brightly and move gently, they all very basic colours but he have the ability to bring the simple to the next stage. To be more specific about this painting “ A girl by Lotus “ Nguyen Sang in the background has those unrealistic shapes, that might represent furniture in the house or decoration, but he does not draw very much detail in it, just the shape. Also his brush line is very thin and small so he can draw details on the lotus or the girl’s body
It not only sketched to the world a chronology about his life, but also gave a clear glimpse about the artistic journey and creative ambitions that he had. His biographers have studied these letters extensively and extracted each and every information about him to understand his personality and nature. Certain interpretations have also been made about the paintings that he made from the narratives that he made in his letters. About the letters of Van Gogh, Washington Post wrote ‘Van Gogh’s letters….are one of the greatest joys of modern literature, not only for the inherent beauty of the prose and the sharpness of the observations but also for their portrait of the
