Hunt or Be Hunted
The lion seems to be looking directly at the viewer as he tears into the flesh of the terrified horse. This piece was created as Baroque ended and Neoclassicism began.
This piece illustrates a few of the characteristics from the Baroque period; visual weight is on the right side and the diagonals are implied throughout the scenes providing directional force.
The shading and soft edges make this unfortunate scene appear slightly abstract. I love how the artist uses neutral colors throughout except for the yellow that depict a light on inside.
Created during Expressionism, pride and victory can be felt as the hunters march their trophies from the mountains.
The defensive swan is made to look very large; scale was an element artists used to intensify effect and emotion during the Baroque period.
