Although the flowers are asymmetrical, the artist has tried to create an element of balance by placing them almost at the middle of the painting, and through the mixing of intense and dark colors. This makes the flowers to stand out clearly in the painting. The artist uses a variety of colors to make the painting beautiful and reduce a sense of monotony (Buster and Crawford 31). The viewer is looking at the flowers from a distance thus their medium size. This brings the effect of realism generated by the painting.
Claude Monet, a 19th century French Impressionist, devoted the last 30 years of his life on a series entitled “Water Lilies”. This series consists of approximately 250 individual oil paintings portraying Monet’s flower garden at Giverny. The Saint Louis Art Museum is home to one of these very unique paintings. Water Lilies is a very interesting piece because there is not just one painting, this series is on display at museums across the word; including the Musee Marmottan Monet in Paris, the Metropolitian Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, the Carnege Museum of Art, the National Museum of Wales, the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nantes and the Portland Art Museum. Monet painted the majority of the series of Water Lilies while he was suffering from cataracts.
Thomas Cole, a painter who founded of the Hudson River School, traveled to the Catskills in search of scenic views. One of Cole’s paintings caught John Trumbull, the president of the American Academy of the Fine Arts, eye and bought the painting. Trumbull quickly spread the word about the new young painter. More upper-class people of the art world started buying Cole’s paintings and within a few years Cole became the leader of an accomplished circle of landscape painters. Over the next 80 years, the Hudson River School grew to include about 100 painters!
Unit 7 Assignment 1 Refraction, Reflection and Optics Refraction The most common real life example used when discussing refraction is a straw in water. When a straw is placed in a glass of water and viewed from the side, it appears to be broken or bent. This is due to the difference in the refractive indices of air and water. Since water is denser than air, the straw appears to bend as the light it reflects is slowed by the density of the water. This phenomenon also makes submerged objects, such as fish look closer to the surface than they actually are.
This material choice and placement could be a implicit undertone of inner beauty. In the artwork titled You Hodges displays the importance that nature has on his creations. You looks like a cascading waterfall of flowers. The result is an artificial nature (silk flowers) vs. non artificial nature (cascading waterfall) 3d sculpture. This piece comes after a period of time where Hodges worked only in black and white.
