Assignment On The Artwork That Caught My Eye

339 words - 2 pages

All my life I have always loved scenery base art that has a futuristic or fantasy look to it. So when I started to look for my art at the Dallas Art Museum I already had a basic idea of what to look for. In the beginning when I was looking for the art of my choice I was just playing around talking about the arts that seem to me to have no uniqueness to them. About twenty minutes of looking around and playing I came to a painting by Antonio Canal ("Canaletto") called The Grand Tour. My first look at the painting was just a glance but that was enough for the painting and me to connect and make me turn around for more thorough investigation. The Grand Tour is a spectacular piece that shows a view from Fondamenta Nuove looking toward San Cristoforo, San Michele, and Murano; it was also the piece I was looking for.. The artwork is portrayed on oil on canvas that adds a shinning look to it; coincidently the shininess of the art helps since the art is in a day time setting. The picture has a structure in the middle of a lake that is surrounded by land; this provides a fantasy fell to the art since the technology was not available yet to create structures on top of lakes. After looking at The Grand Tour; I decided to walk around to see what else was offered. It took me about thirty more mintes to look at the whole musuem for scenery base art and although I found some more none connected with me like The Grand Tour. I went back to the painting The Grand Tour to get all its information and to take picture to write about the art work that caught my eye.

402 words - 2 pages Free between the plain and leveled railroads and a tall building in the horizon seems to represent people to reach higher. It’s also unusual that the building’s color is the only one that shines in the photograph. What I like about this artwork is that it’s in black and white just like any other photograph that’s captured by Keizo Kitajima. Being black and white teaches you to see the world more graphically, it takes away the distraction of color. The viewers eye concentrates on the subject itself. Tones, shapes, textures, light play, shadows, and depth of field all become more apparent when the element of color is removed.
