At first glance I thought that these were angels, but after looking closer, they do not look very angelic. Compared to other paintings we have looked at in class, these women do not carry the same traits as other angels. They do not carry much beauty, and their clothing is not very angelesque. If anything, the one on the left may be an angel, however, the one on the right looks like a poor lady. Out of everyone in the picture, she is the least colorful and has the most basic clothing. Due to this, I do not believe that she is in fact an
A women known as Truth is shown in the middle exuding a bright light surrounding Confidence, who is showing maternal instinct over her child. Another woman believed to be Ignorance is wearing rags and appears in the bottom left corner, struck in fear as her child is being consumed by the monstrosity known as Falsehood. The painting itself is believed to be an allegory created by Lilly, who in her own words, explained its importance to women. “Truth is shown in female guise because woman, the first instructor of “mankind in its innocence”, has particular need for Truth’s enlightenment and
In each of the paintings the artist also uses the shadowing technique. The use of light and dark is captivating in The Lamentation; a lot of it has to
This woman’s expression is much different than the woman in the center of the image. The woman in blue looks stuck in thought, worry and grief. She is holding a burden. Her expression is so void of emotion that you can feel the suffering that lies behind her eyes and are within her thoughts. Her gaze is aimed up toward the viewer but do not appear to be making contact with the camera. She appears to look through the viewer or past them, but not into them. She is fascinating, she holds one of the babies, but with no affection. All the other woman in the photograph add to the grief, anger and sorrowfulness felt in the image. Their gorgeous and colorful dress drowned out by the apparent distress of the expressions on their sun lite faces.
Death on the Pale White Horse, created in the year 1817 is painted horizontally through the application of oil on canvas.The dimensions 176 inches x 301 inches. that correspond to the scale of the figures within the painting come across disproportional and are somewhat misleading to that of the overall height and width of the piece. However, undisturbed by the edges of the canvas, the centralized pyramid shape : formed by the figures in conjunction to those figures within the foreground and the background, is not only placed harmoniously but sporadically together to begin the process of guiding the viewers eyes across the canvas.
The painting is very expressive as it shows the strength of the humanity and nature. The human is actually winning this battle with the horses. The dark colors also accompany this idea. The lighting is rather dim in this painting with a stormy sky above. The perspective is from floor level making the viewer look up in order to appreciate the full specter of this painting. The massive size of the painting proves that Regnault is trying to express power and
At the extreme right, a woman is falling and has not yet hit the ground. Further left, a woman is picking herself up after falling. The horse in the center is fatally wounded and will soon die. To the far left, the child in his mother’s arms has already died, and so has the warrior whose head rests at the bottom of the mural. But again, the strong right to left movement arises from the direction in which the subjects are looking.
"By their deeds you shall know them" is a Biblical passage which seems to state a lesson reiterated in Shakespeare's Macbeth. We intend to examine closely the dark future which the Macbeths deserved because of their sinful conduct.
A Shakespearean tragic hero starts out as a noble person; a great exceptional being who stands out. A tragic hero has a tragic flaw of an exaggerated trait that leads to their downfall and eventually to death. William Shakespeare often made his main characters tragic heroes in his plays. In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the role of the tragic hero is given to the main character: Macbeth. This is because he starts off as a loyal and well liked man in the beginning, but has a tragic flaw of ambition which ultimately leads to his downfall.
In his painting, there is a term to expressing how light varies from its original light. For instance, the background of the painting is adding with brown color, yet using tint and shade effect to the sun sets with distinctive brightness. Brightness is adjusted by horizontal movement, and Breton increases, and decreases his painting’s brightness at the background view. Upper part of the pieces, twilight shines with varying brightness, depending on the darkness of the sky surface. Brightness for the mid-gray tones in the surrounding space, with significantly affecting the highlights and shadows. Overall painting allows depress emotion. Figures is luminous such as the sky and houses, also for the woman, she is apparently describing with a energetic sense of natural, and mournful atmosphere. The light at the back part of the drawing gives viewers to pay attention to the woman rather than the background, since there is bright white T-shirt with dress, and the woman’s face. Breton uses tint and shade effect at the upper part of the painting, and clouding of the back scene maintains a tenderness. Breton uses bright light at the sun sets, and it expressed that it was the dawn and bring message with a bright future will come soon to the woman, and the
A Tragic Hero is a common figure in many of Shakespeare’s works. A Tragic Hero is usually a figure of royalty, fame or greatness. This person is predominately good, but falls from prominence due to personality flaws that eventually lead to self-destruction.
The last canvas I found is the opposite in a way of the two I talked about. The Consummation of the Empire, I found this picture strange at first, that is why I chose it. Consummation meaning the completion of something, it is representing the finishing of Civilization. The point is nature has been taken over, nature is not the main focus anymore, the big white buildings seem to take over most of the land with lots of people as well. So how does this painting play a role in Romantic times ? Instead of taking what is beautiful out of something bad it does the opposite. This painting takes something that is beautiful, meaning the big white buildings, the clear blue sky and what seems to be a lot of people and makes you realize that nature is more important. In all three of these canvases, it seems that the color and texture play a role in how the artist is trying to explain emotions and how what they have gone through or what they may want to go through can affect their
An individual’s imagination is an incredible and persuasive influence on his or her actions. Imagination is defined by Google as “the. . . action of forming new images or concepts . . . not present to the senses.” Many tales and stories have a protagonist with a game-changing imagination. Imagination often persuades people to think one way or another, even though it is often obvious that the reality is much different from their perception. In William Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, the main character is often influenced by his imaginative mind, and evidence of this can be found in three scenes: act 2, scene 2 after the murder of king Duncan; act 3, scene 4 when banquo’s ghost haunts the feast; and act 5, scene 3 before the final battle.
