Blue and the Emotions

Man in a Blue Cap, Jan van Eyck, c. 1430, From the collection of: Muzeul Național Brukenthal
This image is very relevant to my blue mood gallery. The man is wearing a blue cap. Using facial expressions our artist makes the man blue (sad) as well.
yellow and blue, Alex Lyne, created 2014; exhibited Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2014, From the collection of: Sculpture by the Sea - Bondi
This image uses the contrast of the yellow and blue to evoke imagery and emotion in the viewer. Blue is in the lifeguard boards and the ocean as well, balancing the painting overall.
A Field of Blue Bonnets, Late Afternoon Sunlight, JULIAN ONDERDONK, 1919/1920, From the collection of: Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum
These bonnets are beautiful. I am from Texas, and the state flower is bluebonnets. Those are the flowers in this picture and they represent subtle beauty.
open blue print, James McCallum, created 2014; exhibited Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2014, From the collection of: Sculpture by the Sea - Bondi
This abstract surreal sculpture is entirely blue. It is not a defined shape and in this image the blue represents the control of chaos, so we can wrap our heads around a crazy sculpture.
Blue-and-white Plate with Maid Painting, Shunzhi, Qing Dynasty (ca.1644-ca.1661A.D.), From the collection of: Hunan Provincial Museum
The contrast of the isolating white and the blue tones really give this painting a feeling of loneliness and purity, and cleanliness which is good for a plate. ( cuz u eat off of it )
Blue Water Lilies, Claude Monet, 1916 - 1919, From the collection of: Musée d’Orsay, Paris
This painting is almost entirely shades of blue. From the water to the lilies to the title, it is comprised of the deep meaningful color blue.
The Paintings in Scale (Blue), David Diao, 1991, From the collection of: UCCA Center for Contemporary Art
These abstract blue paintings are two shades, light blue and dark blue. The ability to make an entire work with contrasting shades of one color is very powerful and moving, and this artist did a great job.
A Blue Mood, Eileen Monaghan Whitaker, 30 x 22 in. Watercolor., 1962, From the collection of: The Frederic Whitaker and Eileen Monaghan Whitaker Foundation
The title of this is "A Blue Mood". This just goes to show that the color is a very effective tool for mood, and blue is typically a negative sad feeling. The character depicted is restricted and not free, which is why she is colored blue for a reason.
Lyndra by the Blue Pool, Dorset, Derwent LEES, 1913, From the collection of: Art Gallery of South Australia
Lyndra by the Blue Pool, shows that not just is the pool that matters. That fact that it is blue means a lot, and she looks at it. It is reflective, deep, meaningful, as she ponders in her blue mood.
Young Woman in Blue, Degas, Edgar, about 1884, From the collection of: Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields
This young woman wears a blue outfit. Instead of any other color the artist chose blue, which displays how the woman feels. It contrasts with the blue and the red inn the image and shows the meaning of the color in the art.
Blue Space 2010, Yi, Hee Choung, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
Blue space is a recent work, also comprised of mostly blue tones. The circle represents continuity in the circle of life, and blue is the mood and tone of the overall feel.
Blue Store Window, Petar Lubarda, 1930, From the collection of: The Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection
Blue store window is a classic representing the class dynamic in the early 1930's. This is a classic store representing the times, it just happens to be painted blue, out of all the colors. It is welcoming and unthreatening to improve customer experience.
Doubt-Blue Column., Yang, Dae Won, 양대원, 2007, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
These characters are hiding behind blue columns displaying lack of courage, and fear. They are doubtful of their future, and the neon red represents strength, encompassing the whole picture in harmonious conflict.
Blue Café, Ivan Tabaković, 1937, From the collection of: The Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection
Blue cafe shows no facial expressions, but the mood is set by the colors. Each character is slouched, and the lights are dim and harsh. It is not a pleasant time but it is a beautiful scene to look at.
Blue-Green Land, Xu Lei, 2008/2012, From the collection of: Today Art Museum
A blue horse in a blue background, this beautiful abstract painting represents mysticality. The horse is real, and the background is real, but together they make a mythical scene with neon glowing tones and sadness.
