Landscape

1: "The landscape in Rousseau's "Sleeping Gypsy" is barren, and simplistic, which helps to focus the viewer's attention on the central figures. The large, blue sky envelops the painting and contrasts to the strong neutrals in the rest of the piece. The horizontal lines created by the land, water, and mountains lead the viewer's eye to travel through the scene, while the figure lying diagonally draws the eye down through the piece. The moon is a dominant object in the large, clear sky, which balances the larger, heavier figures below." 2: "This piece holds a special spot in my life that I can relate to. The most important thing that draws my attention is the lion peacefully watching the gypsy sleep. The line of the mountains in the background draws my attention away from the gypsy and the lion. My favorite color in this piece is the vase sitting next to the sleeping gypsy. It holds my attention the longest every time I look at this piece."
Gustav Klimt's Hope II is a very ornate decoration. The long diagonal of the body draws the viewer from the bottom to the top. You are mesmerized by the different distortions of emotions visualized throughout the portrait. Klimt was one who combined archaic traditions such as the byzantine gold leaf painting of Hope II.
i LOVE THIS PIECE AND IT MEANS A LOT TO ME. wHEN I FIRST VIEWED THIS PIECE IT CAUGHT MY EYE. iT WAS A WOMEN THAT WAS COMFORTABLE IN HER OWN SKIN NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE THOUGHT SHE EMBRACED HERSLEF AND BODY. NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN EMBRACE THERE BODY BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE WAS THAT THE WANT` IT TO BE. THERE IS A LOT OF BODY IMAGERY GOING ON. THIS WOMEN IN THE PICTURE IS CONFIDENT AND HAPPY WITH HOW SHE IS AND WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE. i THINK THAT IS A WOUNDERFULL THING AND IT SHOULD MAKE US ALL WANT TO EMBRACE OURSELF NO MATTER WHAT SOCIETY SAYS. THE COLORS WAS WOUNDERFULL. THEY WERE DARK BECAUSE IT TOOK PLACE AT NIGHT AND TO ME THE COLORS IS CALM AND SOOTHING.
Roger and Angelica by Odilon Redon depicts a fantasy scene as the subject matter, the story of Roger and Angelica from a book. The main figures are of a monster, man on a horse, and a woman next to an ocean. The figures are abstract and the theme of the work is invention and fantasy. The work has mostly cool colors that are saturated and contrasting. The shapes are mostly organic and mostly without lines with the existing lines mostly contour lines and a few outlines. There is a lot of light around the bottom middle of the painting, drawing attention to that area. The three main figures depicted move your eyes around the painting in a circle, starting with the man on the winged horse, moving to the chained woman, and down to the smoke-blowing monster or dragon. The medium used is pastel and the style is symbolism.
When you look at "Pines and Rocks" you can almost feel the breeze blowing through the painting. The brush stokes Paul Cèzanne uses in his painting blur the lines between the rocks, the trees, and the sky. He uses mostly an earth tone palette to describe his view of the forest. The tree lines draw your gaze upward into the sky that you can only just barely make out through the leaves. This painting is emanating a serene feeling.
It feels like the sky is moving when you look at the painting. The swirly lines which look like they represent the clouds make it organic. The colors are bright; especially the stars and the moon stand out to the viewer. It feels like the entire sky is illuminated. The rest of the painting is somewhat in muted colors of green, blue, black. The huge tree or bush on the left of the painting kind of grows into the sky. It is oversized compared to everything else the viewer looks at. But the swirly lines are similar to the ones in the sky. It looks a little scary due to the fact that the colors are deep dark green.
This leaf art made by using pinpricks is a vertical display. The leaf is a teardrop shape and in the design we see a circle above a heart shaped outline. It looks almost like the top half of a hooded figure and then if you flip the image upside down it looks like a person raising their arms. The work is done on a dried leaf, so it is beige/brown in color with the design much lighter beige. When viewing teh work I am first drawn to the circular shape at the top. My eye folows down the heart shaped outline, and then inside of it to the smaller leaf shape. The veins in the leaf are barely noticeable, yet the draw the eye naturally back to the center of the peice. This peice is not representational art, or it might be so abstract that it is unrecognizeable, but the subject is not clear.
