Wednesday, January 27, 2016 Episodes in Western Art Week 1: Nazi Plunder & Egypt - Visual analysis • the basic tool we use to understand an art piece. - Expolio • People got together to paint one area before the nazi’s arrived. - 3 paintings • photorealistic • monochrome - Painting VIII • Everything in the painting works to draw our eye towards the woman. - Flowing lines. - Triangles pointing upward. - Eyes moving up (literally). - Mostly gold, contrasts wth the color of the woman. - Most hectic area of shapes frames her head. • There is a slight resemblance to realism. The place she is in looks like a room with a possible floor and window. • Her gesture - Hands are clasped together, showing some reserve or maybe embarrassment. • Very basic use of lines and shape, almost looks like a collage. Balance the other side with two silver squares . • • Flat light. • A person of high status . - Lots of jewelry. 1 Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - Hair is very wild, took time to care for it. - covered in gold. - Cool colors balance out the excessive use of warm gold and occasional red. - Not much emotion from her face despite it being the focal point. - Cant distinguish the dress from the wall. • Repeat patterns shown throughout the painting make it difficult to tell what part belongs to what area. - She is the only part of the picture surrounded by different colors (mostly silver) and some more finite red and pink colors • Possible rejection of status. Her status, if seen as the gold, is almost consuming her, but she is trying to break free of it.. - Egyptians • Frontality - drawing not as you see but to convey the most information • even with an open mind we filter through our own biases • Wise but not rational • Eastern Women - powerful but meant to be possessed and controlled buy western men - West: urban imperial, masculine, white, liberal - East: non-rational, feminine 2
