Clare 209 Sum 1 Dubin

A glimpse into the favorite artworks of Josh Dubin. Once I figured out how to separate these into paintings, sculptures, and photographs, I wasn't able to drag them from my main gallery for some reason so they're all together.

This is another painting by Vincent van Gogh. I chose this because everybody has their own world in their bedroom. People generally spend a lot of time in their rooms and we get a glimpse into van Gogh's. This was painted in 1888 and sits at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
I chose this because it is powerful and representing of early civilization. The Tower of Babel is mentioned in the Bible. This is depicting the building of this great tower and a civilization in which people would stay, not scatter. It sits in Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
I chose this because it looks relaxing and sociable, and it also gives us a glimpse into the lives and dress of 19th Century England. Seurat focused on color, light, and form. It currently sits at the Art Institute of Chicago.
This is an early sculpture of the Greek Civilization . It dates back to 442 BC. I chose this because I like the detail in the hair and garments of the people in it. It lets us see how people dressed back then. The person in the middle looks to be of some importance, which I found interesting.
I chose this sculpture because of its mystery. It is an Aztec sculpture and is 12 feet long weighing 24 tons. Historians are unclear whether it is some kind of calendar or religious depiction. The center appears to have a mysterious figure in the center, possibly being some kind of god. It sits in the National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City.
This photography shows a mountain. To me this is representing the beauty of nature and the power of massive landmarks like mountains. It dates back to 1861 when the earth was much more rural and untouched.
This photo depicts some sort of celebration in a beautiful park in France. I chose it because it looks peaceful and it appears to be a nice spring or summer day.
I couldn't find much information about this sculpture. I chose it because it looks incredibly old and exhibits the power of the female form. It is beautiful and mysterious . Although it appears to be very old, it was created only 42 years ago.
This to me shows the effects of the great depression. It was taken in San Francisco at Aquatic Park in 1949. This photography by Minor White captures the depression of the area, yet offers an entertaining background with a ferris wheel and water. San Francisco is beautiful today and this snap shot captures a moment in history when things were different.
I chose this piece because it is powerful. It appears that Alexander the Great has conquered Persia, and the queens are kneeling before him. His posture and body language suggests he is having mercy on them.
I chose this piece because of its mystery. It is a smiling figure that dates back to the year 700-800. It looks like its something from the Incan, Mayan, or Aztec civilizations. It appears to be a happy woman holding a fish or a rodent, possibly in celebration. i like the detail in the hat and outfit and I think the expression of the face was captured very well.
I chose this work because it portrays the German occupation of Greece during World War II. It is a soup kitchen where people are lining up to receive meals. It captures the poverty and suffering that went on during World War II, all at the hands of the Nazi Party and the German Army. The black and white mundaneness adds to the desired perception of economic depression.
The Starry Night, by Vincent van Gogh. I chose this picture because I like its style and because it is one of the most famous and recognizable paintings in the world. It was painted in 1889. The painting shows a night time view outside one of his windows in Southern France. It sits in the Museum of Art in New York City.
I chose this sculpture because I already had one of the female form. I thought this was an interesting sculpture because it is missing one leg and two arms and a head. It makes you wonder about the actual person behind it, when in reality its a depiction of the beauty of the male form.
