The first piece of artwork I chose was from the Cetraal Museum, located Utrecht, Netherlands. This piece of artwork is called “Joseph and His Brother” and Abraham Bloemaert was the painter between 1595-1600, the painting is w211 x h141cm. This painting shows vivid bright pastels embracing and expressing celebration. The people in the painting appear to be a very poised society. The Utrecht society painted in an elongated type shape, which is usually used to depict humans in spiritual portraits. This painting illustrates the reunion of Joseph and his half brother, after his jealous half-brother sold him into slavery to the Egyptians. This painting is a simple of forgiveness and honor among brothers. The colors are fluid and show some sense of righteousness.
The second piece of artwork I chose was from In The Mouvement ESSARTS, This piece is called “Question of balance” it is a sculpture by Pierre Tessier. This sculpture is tangible, rough woody log, which is balance by one stone from Canada sitting on the left side on the log. The colors a full and real it allows you to question the mysteries of life and what really makes balance real the stone or the log. In today’s society balance is so important and in this sculpture the stability of this log depends on the one stone.
The third piece is a very is bronze sculpture from the 10th century Chola Dynasty, “Queen Sembiyan Mahadvi as the Goddess Parvati” the sculpture is w334 x h1073 x d257cm. The sculpture is unknown so I could see that that sculpture captured a the real form and shape of this goddess, making her figure real life like, but the face is no distinct features, except for the gauging of her ears. You can see that the type of accessories worn by the queen in these times, the covering of the lower part of the body and the detail of the breast makes life like. The sculpture appears to be smooth to the touch.
