A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat, 1884-1886, From the collection of: The Art Institute of Chicago
Shadow and lighting create contrast. Each person is facing the same way, making the viewer wonder what they are looking at. Lines are very defined making each character clear. Oil paint is used on a canvas.
Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil (Automne sur la Seine Argenteuil), Claude Monet, 1873/1873, From the collection of: High Museum of Art
Brush strokes almost appear to be random. There are no clear and defined lines. Each color runs into the next which gives the trees, water, sky, boats, etc. their shapes. Image appears to be like a quick glimpse of the scene. The painting is oil on a canvas.
Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, Auguste Renoir, 1876, From the collection of: Musée d’Orsay, Paris
Brush strokes almost appear to be random. There are no clear and defined lines. Each color runs into the next which gives the trees, water, sky, boats, etc. their shapes. Image appears to be like a quick glimpse of the scene. The painting is oil on a canvas.
Oficina, Sérgio Vidal da Rocha, 1900/1900, From the collection of: Afro Brasil Museum
Brush strokes almost appear to be random. There are no clear and defined lines. Each color runs into the next which gives the trees, water, sky, boats, etc. their shapes. Image appears to be like a quick glimpse of the scene. The painting is oil on a canvas.
A Lady in Her Bath, François Clouet, c. 1571, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
The color red is in stark contrast to the woman’s bare white skin, making her a focal point. The painting is very clear and smooth. Each person leads to another all the way out of the room to what appears to be the main room of the house. This gives the eyes a direction to follow while viewing. Medium used is oil on oak.
