In his painting, he used bright and bold colors, such as yellows and purples, to exaggerate the colors of the sky, which also reflects off the water. The large cloud in his painting, instead of appearing smooth and fluffy like a realistic cloud, has finger-like projections coming from the top. Thus giving the painting a more eerie feeling. This also shows how Seurat began experimenting with abstract shapes. Instead of using brush strokes, Seurat used the painting technique Pointillism.
Both of the artworks are done with oil on canvas. This type of medium is one commonly used by both artists. Another likeness of the two works, like the medium used, is very apparent. Both of the works are paintings. Though the styles of the paintings are nothing alike, both were created with paint and brushes on canvas.
They both use oil on canvas; but their styles mentioned earlier was in contrast. In Ingres Painting, the long, gentle curving limbs remind the Mannerist painting than that of a Grek nude, and his colors are rich, reminding Bronzino’s in the Exposure of luxury, his painting looks linear, while on the other hand, Delacroix seems to exhibit good texture of paint itself. Another important contrast is at the pose level: the pose in Ingres painting is positively conservative, while Delacroix’s is less conservative. 2.

Pirates Fighting Sunrise (1818) by Horace Vernet 72.0 x 103.2 cm oil on canvas Viewed at Art Gallery of Ontario on 25th September 2012 I have chosen to write about Horace Vernet’s “Pirates Fighting Sunrise” painted in 1818. Being relatively much smaller in size than most of the other pieces displayed around it this 72.0 x 103.2 cm piece oil on canvas managed to draw my attention before any other, because of its extraordinarily realistic details achieved with rich and vivid shades of oil paint, represented in such a small amount of space. Vernet’s piece captures a beautiful but chaotic and stressful moment in history, set in rather complicated scenery. The content of the painting altogether creates a sense of chaos and confusion for the viewer. The scene is set during sunrise; the sky is seen during its transition from night to day, somewhere between the two.
There were horses and men, cattle and women, pigs and children, all holding the same rank in the scale of being, and were all subjected to the same narrow examination. At this moment, I saw more clearly than ever the brutalizing effects of slavery upon both slave and slaveholder. (56) The second important theme that helps Douglass achieve his purpose is the theme of two-facedness of some Christians. Douglass emphases the corruption slaveholding had over religion. During the narrative, Douglass forms a difference between true Christianity and false Christianity, which he explains as one, being the “Christianity of Christ” and the other as the “Christianity of this land”.
This style was originally controversial and opposing artists thought of impressionists as not skilled with incomplete works. However, the pursuance of being in the exact moment, light was skillfully placed to give radiance from the sun and reflections were realistic enough to give you the time of day the scenery took place. This can explain why it was more effective for artists to capture their subjects in the great outdoors. The incompleteness was rather helpful in achieving an instant vision and was done by using primary colors without blending. In order for this style to be clarified artists used short brush strokes, dotting and smearing techniques.
Symbolism in the Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne uses symbolism in his writing to give subtle hints about the Puritans way of life. He uses symbols such as the scaffold, the scarlet letter, and lightness and darkness. These symbols are all connected to the sin of Hester Prynne. Hawthorne used the symbols to show how Hester and those around her are all affected by her sin. The scarlet letter is one of the main symbols Hawthorne uses in the novel.
How can symbols be used to contrast characters and ideals? In Lord of the Flies, author William Golding uses fire and water to accomplish this. “Water popularly represents life. It can be associated with birth, fertility, and refreshment. Fire consumes, warms, and illuminates, but can also bring pain and death; thus, its symbolic meaning varies wildly, depending upon the context of its use.
His painting Night Watch is noted for its excellent use of chiaroscuro. The eyes are deep and sorrowful and the expression seems to be that of triumph over great inner-struggle. It is believed that during this time Rembrandt may have been subject to the Copernican revolution, and surely this art piece seems to show that Rembrandt was reclaiming his solitude. Unfortunately, his drastic change in style cost him his popularity, which of course also meant his
Also, the use of visual and auditory imagery allows the reader to depict vividly the surrounds of the slave times and the seriousness of the struggles they are faced with. The sound is shown in the phrase “voice high-sounding o’er the storm” and the visuals are shown in the line “Saw, salient, at the cross of devious ways”. The poet concludes with the use of pathetic fallacy in the phrase “lonely dark”. This is used to evict emotion onto the reader with the depiction of the state of loneliness. Overall, Dunbar makes clear the message, as well as fulfils the purpose of this poem for readers of all
