The work of art chosen to be analyzed is a portrait by Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun entitled The Countess Von Schönfeld And Her Daughter. The artwork is oil on canvas art painted in 1973. It is a painting of a woman and her daughter. Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun’s main focus of the portrait is visibly the mother and her daughter displayed in the portrait. The subjects are placed in the center to emphasize the figures and the pair is set in the foreground.
There are five males who all stand and surround one helpless, beautiful female. She is lying on her back, and her eyes are softly closed. Her facial expression shows a sign of weakness and lack of control, whereas, the males all have very serious expressions. While the other two men in the advert do have tops on, one wears a fitted jean jacket to add to the classiness. One of the shirtless males stands tall over the female, holding both of her hands down with ease.
When arriving at the museum I was greeted with beautiful art and ancient pieces from all over the world. The museum is intimate and quite with three floors to the museum The first piece that caught my eyes was, the Powerful Women in Costa Rica. The two large, finely made statues represent powerful female witchdoctors. Seating with their hands on their knees in meditation, their bulging eyes indicates trance. Both shows their bulging bellies of pregnancy, communicating that their power lies equally in female procreativity.
The woman is sleepy, but she stumbles from her bed to check on the baby. The words, “cow-heavy” literally mean as heavy as a cow, and the floral means like flowers. The image this quote creates is one where the woman is suddenly awakened by one cry. As
Self-Portrait as Wunderkabinett By: JULIE HEFFERNAN Oil painting 82 x 58 inches Describe: Julie Heffernan used oil crayons to paint Wunderkabinett. She used a variety of different soft and dark colors within the painting. This portrait takes place in mid 1900s Victorian ball room; the room is dark green with gold trimmings on the top of the room, and it has a similar Michelangelo, Sistine Shapel painting on the ceiling. In the center of the large room is a chandelier hanging down from the ceiling with a variety of colored balls spilling out from the chandelier and landing on the floor. The chandelier stretches halfway down the room, with many birds flying around the chandelier from the bottom right side, curving around the chandelier, and ending up on the upper left hand corner.
There is a very transparent golden V laid over top of the photo, and there is a gold-colored bottle of cologne in the bottom left corner. The woman is standing to the side her body facing Usher, and she is looking back toward the left smiling. She is wearing a simple white dress, a necklace, and a bracelet. Usher is wearing black dress pants with a white long sleeve dress shirt, and he has a black untied bow tie hanging around is neck. He is facing the reader
She has come to attend the service and the white church goers have a different opinion. Walker’s description of the woman’s clothing starts off with what you assume is a typical church outfit but begins to tell a different tale with the words “old corsage”, from that point forward you are fed an image of an old, weathered, foul-smelling, dirty black woman. To create an image of her weathered skin she chooses a simile to liken it to the bark of a pine tree: “Skin was ashen but durable, like the bark of old pines” (Walker, 1993). The reader is guided to imagine dry rough skin, by her use of the familiar image of rough pine bark. The story is being told by an omniscient persona.
After Alice has done her makeup, the camera shot cuts to Alice holding Bella’s white wedding dress on one side of the room when she exclaimed, “here’s the dress!” then immediately cuts back to the other side of the room to show the exclaim from the mother. Then the camera shot cut a focus to the facial expression of Bella, which is worried, symbolizing the dream she
She is a slender character who is curvy. Her backside is facing the open-faced window; her left arm is bent with her left hand placed on the man’s shoulder. Her slender right arm looks to be pressed up against the man’s chest, leaving just her hand to be cupping the back of his neck. Her head full of hair is thrown back, with her nonexistent facial features facing upward against the face of the man she is embracing. The man who appears to be taller than the woman has his back facing away from the window, but leaves the outsiders a glimpse of his left side of his body.
The storytime presentation was held outside in the courtyard of the library. There were red and yellow balloons all around the courtyard, and the children all sat around on blankets as the firefighter read aloud a fire safety book called “No Dragons for Tea.” This children fiction picture book is an informative story about a little girl who invites an adorable dragon to her house for tea. The dragon sneezes, and of course starts a fire. The story was told by firefighter Cameron, I felt his volume projection was good considering we were outside. Cameron held the book up so the children could see the colored pictures, and he did well with the different voices of the little girl and the dragon.
