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.
Darker areas generally are focused on first which provides a focal point. In photography, there are several composition guidelines to draw the reader to the subject of the work. Angela, although not a photograph, fills the frame prohibit the eyes from wondering far from the subject. The mark frames the subject’s eyes, submitting them to be the main focus of the portrait. Since eyes are primarily a small element of the face making scale an important factor to portraits and the focal point.
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.
Bernini catapulted the baroque style of sculpture, adding movement and emotion that was ahead of his time. Bernini was an inspiration to a variety of artists, including some of his biggest rivals. Bernini has been known to study his sitter thoroughly through their daily lives as to catch their most natural face, and accentuate the right features to make it still look life like. His approach is faster and spontaneous than others. Bernini has a painterly effect to his sculptures and is his signature style.
From a line in Langston Hughes poem “Harlem”. Both readings were written in a time of immense promise and hopefulness. But they also both deal with choices and endurance of consequences from that choice. One of several particular elements in each of the stories that best emphasize the theme is the usage of figurative language in each text. Some of the different types of figurative language each author used is simile, personification, and metaphor’s.
A Personal Reflection on The Barkley L. Hendricks Experience - As I See It Thomas, Floyd R. “A Personal Reflection on The Barkley L. Hendricks Experience - As I See It.” Lyman Allyn Art Museum (2001): 1. Resource Library Magazine. Web .

Pepe Karmel tells us “The formal qualities of an abstract painting or sculpture are significant not in themselves but as part of the work’s expressive message.”4 According to this definition Seed falls whole-heartedly into the category of abstract, specifically referring to the limited color palette and undefined species as previously mentioned. Does the heat of orange with its message of fertility and energy5 contrasted with the “something cool and detached about blue”5 support the expressive message of Seed? Going back to what Linda Lynch said of her work overall, “representation… rather than image”2 color does seem to go beyond a simple choice to symbolic representation and her
Dove was known as America’s first abstract painter and he used colorful, dynamic forms to show his sensitive side of the physical world which inspired O’Keeffe. Over the years of their friendship, their artistic dialogue yielded a form of modernism grounded in direct, emotional responses to that of nature which helped shape the course of art in America. While Stieglitz was a photographer, he and O’Keeffe’s styles were also similar. He was a photographer that had an eye for abstract art while she had the style of abstract
First, a wealth of evidence exists to indicate that Durkheim, and his works, had a significant influence on Marc Bloch, many of Bloch’s colleagues, including Lucian Febvre, described Bloch as captivated by Durkheimian thought, one of Bloch’s peers even writing; “Of all the disciplines which have acted on Marc Bloch, it is certainly the sociology of Durkheim which has exercised upon him the greatest influence.” And Marc Bloch himself was open about the central role Durkheimian thought played in his own academic work, reiterating his support for much of, but not all, its ideas
The lines that are used in this piece are different in many ways; they are orientated horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The lines are also a combination of curved and straight lines to create distinct shapes. The shapes most evident in the artwork are organic in nature as compared to geometric shapes. Space use creates the illusion of depth in this art

To do so, I had to achieve a balance between the map and the shapes. The first idea I had pertaining to this problem was to make one of the designs colored while making one black and white to create an instant and striking difference. However, I chose to keep the design black and white as this is how Flatland is described throughout most of the novel with the exception being the color revolution. Additionally, by keeping with the black and white, the emphasis is placed on the content rather than the color of the cover. To achieve a maximum contrast between the two central designs, I created the map in the background using a lighter gray and the figures were created using a darker color and a thicker stroke.
Artists; Betye Saar, Kara Walker, Michael Ray Charles, and Kerry James Marshall all create art stemming from race and stereotypes, and although their works have the same subject matter, their influences somewhat differ. Betye Saar likes to use characters such as Aunt Jemima, Uncle Tom, and other stereotypes from folk culture, and advertising in her works, and often using collages or assemblages to showcase those works. She once stated that “I’m the type of person who recycles material but I also recycle emotions and feelings.” Kara Walker is known for creating black-and-white silhouette works. Her subjects draw critical attention to the earlier cultural time of the pre-Civil War United States. Often displaying the subjects of slavery, conflict
While both abstract and realistic depictions of the human form play important roles in performing arts, I prefer accurate arts of human body more. To me, the human figure is so perfect and beautiful that it deserves to be portrayed and recorded eternally. A painting or sculpture about human beings never fails to amaze me. There is a different kind of body art that I want to introduce. Alexa Meade is an American artist who invented a new way to pursue arts using human bodies and transforming them into a painting.
