These portraits are equidistant and their frames are the same and wooden. And just below each of them are two yellow papers which look like some of his painting. The one on the right is horizontal; with black vertical lines in the center of the paper and the one on the left is vertical with black vertical lines not much in the center but moved slightly up. These portraits and papers are just above the bed as the wall is slant. It looked like pine wood was used to make the bed.
The background of the room contains a bookshelf, a chair covered with a throw rug and a woven rug lining the floor. The combination of these elements create a feeling of warmth and comfort within the space of the interior. The artists application of a warm colour scheme, filled with tones of yellow’s, brown’s and rich reds, adds to this feeling of comfort. Using a block painting technique, the artist develops warmth which adds texture and enhances the relaxed atmosphere of the interior. The employment of this technique, Cossington-Smith directs the viewer to optically blend colours to define the shapes in the room.
She used different kind of materials in her artwork for example unique gouache, tracing paper, unique colored crayon and pencil on paper, original woven wool, original gouache and pochoir on paper and some other materials I didn’t mention. She prolonged Orphism values to the design of fabrics, pottery decoration, stage sets, and other applied arts. During the 1920s, Delaunay designed textiles and dresses, and her use of abstract colors had a strong influence on international fashion. But she basically known for her use of strong colors and geometric shapes she did a lot of abstract work using circles and geometric shapes I think they may have even called it orphism.. Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the combination of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing.
There are mostly vertical and horizontal lines, as opposed to diagonal lines. The artist uses closed form in this painting and there are clear outlines and smooth brush strokes. The painting has a central format; the important is in the center. In this painting the artist uses linear perspective; this is a technique where things appear to get smaller as they go back in space. This technique also creates a depth in a flat surface.
In addition, the arched and meandering lines ending in husk motifs that flank the top shell in Watteau's design have been placed lower, and some of the smallest ornamental details have been omitted. The artist used reversed copies of the prints by Cr6py and showed remarkable dexterity in cutting out very fine decoration. Allegorical figures derived from another series of French prints were pasted on either side of the door frames and in the central niche (Figures 25-27). Symbolizing seven months, these figures represent various gods and goddesses with their symbols and signs of the zodiac in a fanciful architectural frame. From left to right, starting with the left-hand door, we see Vulcan as September and Minerva as October.
Lytton Strachey by Vanessa Bell appeals to me because it is slightly abstract and has a slightly distorted look – for example, the hand has been stretched and is out of proportion. It also uses a variety of colours and has an unusual arrangement – with an unclear background, which makes it stand out. I chose this painting because, when looking through many paintings, I found that this one interested me most, and was the most memorable. Marianne von Werefkin’s self portrait also interests me because the person blends in with the background, and it has movement to it so is unusual. Also, it is very colourful, and uses different shades of colour blending in to each other, so is bright and stands out.
Many of the Minoan palaces were decorated with large frescoes, or murals. Most were painted in one bright, vivid color. These paintings greatly showed influences from the Egyptian culture and other Mediterranean cultures. While the Egyptians used a “dry-fresco” technique, the Minoans used a “wet” painting method (Sheldon, 2009). This type of method helped characterize the Minoan art and helped them paint images of life and nature.
His pieces of art are distinguished by their stunning strength and realism. His art pieces show distress and moral weakness as well as passion and beauty. “Eve” is a world famous sculpture and known as one of his most powerful and influential works. “Eve” was first introduced in his design for “The Gates of Hell’. He received a commission to create an entrance for the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1880.
The artwork of John Adams has great balance, noticeable effects, and incredible symbols. John Copley constructed an image that was equal, but it had uneven sides, thus creating an asymmetrical balance. It seems that Copley probably use oil paint which applies a glossier effect to the image. Because of the color variety and the highlight, it seems that he emphasized more on the left side than on the right. His decision to use more dark colors than light creates a softer image with a calmer feeling.
The darkest part of the painting is actually the left foreground – uncharacteristic of most paintings from this time period. There is an impressive range of textures, from sharp and clean shown on the chandelier, which achieves a very realistic metallic effect, to soft and flowing, shown in the various fabrics around the room.
