Dali communicates his message of time and how it is slowing down by using symbolism, juxtaposition and colour. This artwork can be read as a landscape, a still life and a self portrait highlighting Dali’s tour de force. Dali has been influenced by Luis Buñuel, Garcia Lorca and Paul Eluard. Although this painting is small the careful detail that has been placed into it makes this artwork captivating. In the background a peaceful morning has been painted contrasting with the unrealistic foreground.
However, he is not fully capable of discerning the meaning behind the story being told, nor can he discern any of the other paintings upon the urn completely. It goes to show the complexity of the language of art when read by mankind. Art can not only speak to a person, but it can also paint a picture of a perfect world inside one’s mind. The human mind and human emotion can sometimes yearn for the world that is reality to bend to what it desires. Though this is not likely at all to occur in the realm of reality, it is easy to capture a world of perfection in eternal stillness in art.
(VanGoghGallery) Another of Van Gogh’s works that show how Post Impressionism evolved yet stayed in the impressionistic movement is “Café Terrace at Night” which has much cleaner defined lines with bold colors yet the forms of the people in the painting are still very loose and less defined. Many of Van Gogh’s paintings give me the same feelings
The artist chose to use cardboard because of the matte effect it had with the resulting art work. He did not clearly dictate the contours with distinct outlines but used the colors and their relationship placed together to imply shapes and the drape of fabrics. Vuillard was able to enunciate the tired look of the older woman’s well lit face using analogous colors together in simplest forms instead of defining lines. He used warm colors straight from their tubes to create flat, opaque, and blurred colors to create a pattern-like order of what is to be interpreted. Edouard Vuillard did not intend to duplicate his subjects but to convey their artistic attitude.
1983. Polygnotos (monumental) * He was from Thasos and was a wall painter. * Not a fragment of his work survives but his influence appears to have been profound. * Internal motivation rather than external activity intrigued him and he often avoided painting the obvious moment of climax e.g. didn’t depict the sack of Troy but he painted the scene the day after so that he could explore the movement of the mind when that of the body had been stilled.
In this piece, the image seems to be almost completely lost. The lines appear to come together to create familiar objects. Like Picasso’s this painting also has little color and he uses white, blue, red and yellow. The painting is very creative and it’s like Gorky creates his own language, his own mark making and even his own calligraphy. Finally, the most recent of the artworks, Jackson Pollock’s Full Fathom Five, 1947.
Usually artists painted their own versions of what is going on in their country, but David portrays it through classical looking characters. This makes his work very different and eye catching. The way that David painted this work of art makes us immediately think of virtue and
Delacroix realizes that upperclass, "civilized" culture is phony and shallow. This realization, coupled with his new view on beauty, allows him to create imaginative and unique worlds in his paintings. He avoids painting things seen daily, and digs into deeper more primal human emotions. He accomplishes this by focusing on color and movement in his pieces rather than on line or formal
I don’t think he used colors on purpose to show how calm and sort of peaceful the mountains were during the summer and how there was never really much going on in that area. Now on to the use of texture it sort of looks like the artist used ink wash for texture. The lines used are soft looking strokes. They aren’t to noticeable like i’ve seen in some other art work pieces. The texture also proves to the people that the work piece is smooth and slow going.
These are portraits with unusual perspective and peculiar range of colours. They are far from realistic representation of a person, but still they are portraits. Can photography do that? Of course no. Also, while painting is an independent creation, photography is very much dependent on a scene.
