Week 1: Foundations – Visual Analysis Definitions Key Concepts Locations * = on exam Formal Analysis: viewing a work of art and deciding what it is that the author wished to convey; included contextual analysis because the viewer has a context and background of their own, which influences their interpretation. remember works of art change over time Formal Elements Color - keep in mind varying hues, levels of saturation, and color patterns (such as primary colors). Line - Consider linearity vs. painterlines (chiaroscuro), distinguishing between works that emphasize linear contours as compared with those that emphasize the play of light and dark; also consider if the line is strong or broken. Space - this term indicates whether the image conveys a sense of three- dimensional space. Mass - describes the space created by an artwork, indicating whether the artwork conveys a sense of substantial form, as if I had weight or volume. Scale - relative size, both within the artwork and relative to the viewer. Composition - a description of how the artist combined all of the elements in the work. Note: Always check an artwork's dimensions. Sculpture Methods Additive Processes - the sculpture is built up. Modeling - from material, like clay. Subtractive Processes - like carving stone or wood; in which material is taken away to create. Casting - molten metal is poured into a mold. Note: Since the 20th century, many artists have begun sculpting using unconventional methods. Anthropomorphic: figures with human characteristics. Abstract: art that does not set out to imitate observed reality. Note: artworks are neither completely abstract nor completely figurative. Installation Art: artwork made for a specific site that creates a total environment rather than being placed in a pre-existing environment. Ekphrasis: a form of visual description; the goal of this literary form is to make the reader envision the thing described as if it were physically present. Style: refers to the resemblance works of art have to one another. Connoisseurship: The traditional approach to deciding whether a particular artist painted a particular work, in the absence of documents that link them explicitly. Iconographic Analysis: establishes the meaning a work of art had at the time it was made. This may or may not include what the maker of the work intended.
