Formal Analysis Of Art Lillian M. Floyd ART/101 Shelly Scott- Harmon February 6, 2013 * * After viewing Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing No.681 both artist has their own technique of using lines in their compositions. How does artist use lines to show their personalities and their views on the world? To Van Gogh nature is compelling and formidable as God himself and with him being mentally unstable this was evident by the way he used lines in his painting which is strong and black. The swirls in the night sky are strong as a possible indication of his views of God’s and nature’s power. Van Gogh’s view of the world was simple for he looked at it as uncontrolled as evident through his use of lines and swirls in his painting.
The Ministers Black Veil and Nature How do they compare or do they compare? Both of these stories could fall in the romanticism line. Actual outdoor nature and human nature are both mysterious. Though neither is perfect in both stories it seems that is what we are looking for. When you read Emerson’s Nature you can feel how perfect he sees things.
Next was Eddie Perfect, who received quite a lot of applause upon entering the stage. He was young, charming and had a very nice rich quality to his voice, as well as a great range. But what specifically reminded me very much of a young Michael Buble was his style. “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories” are my favorite out of all the song at that night. Jazz music sound soft and mellow as playing on however like all music, it tells a story and here are the stories of “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories”.
Under the eyes and the blue square is a large blotch of faded orange and an almost rectangle shape of icy blue. Within the faded orange is a triangle shape which is the only triangular shape not only making it unique but illustrates how this artwork does not have a defined layout. The painting is very spontaneous because of the various colors and shapes and its random strokes. The icy blue contrasting against the calm, dark blue
In the painting there are intense colors show and the Expressionism is linking with Fauvism and making a great influence on the painting. Everyone in the picture seems to have a purpose and a task as to doing something whether it is going to work, or shopping, or just walking around. One of the members of Die Brucke was Emil Nolde who was also a member of the German expressionist painters. He was known for
It is similar however due to the very neutral colors being used in the painting. There is a lot of while and black and then brown hues, red hues, some yellow hues and some green/blue hues, however they are all very dark in value and it gives a black and white feel to the painting. Another similarity is the perspective. The perspective in the photograph is very similar to that of the painting, where you have the dead men in the foreground and the horizon in the background both having similar vanishing points and points of view. Another similarity is value of the sky and the foreground.
Her use of sensory details is impeccable. The line “think of your hands, fingertips on the soft hair” not only makes me think about touching someone’s hair but makes me feel my smooth fingers brushing through soft silky hair. She uses a great simile when comparing the men’s eyes to the night sky. She shows her use for metaphors when comparing her mother to a white dove. My favorite would have to be the simile just because I can clearly picture in my mind that the eyes of this man can look like the dark black night sky.
He also uses the symbol of wilderness to show a division in worlds. Also being characterized as the unknown, the towns people do not like the unknown. Thanks to hawthorne we can take a look at the deeper meaning in this piece of his literature. Symbolism is the best way for an author to develop and bring a greater meaning to a story. Throughout the book, Hawthorne uses the symbol of an "A" , the way it is used varies depending on the part of the book the reader is looking into.
By the time he came to construct “glass, guitar and bottle, analytical cubism had moved onto synthetic cubism. Picasso began to build up his paintings from a selection of painted shapes and collage materials. The inspiration came from the shapes colours & textures rather than the objects. Four examples of Ann Redpath’s work are; “The blue tablecloth – c,1940”, “The Indian rug – c,1942”, “ Still life with teapot on round table – c,1945” and “The white azalea – 1954”.Ann Redpath showed great early
Unit 1 Listening Assignment Chapter 1 1.) Title - "Mood Indigo" Artist - Duke Ellington & His Orchestra Composer - Billy Strayhorn Musical Traits - The beat that the instruments play is what the song actually gets it's title from.
