Alice’s mother did not own the palace of Versailles nor was she responsible for the vast gardens around it, yet she always made whatever shabby space her family lived in as flourishing and as bright as any great garden. Alice’s mother had a passion for plant life. Any spare moment she had would be spent tending to her garden. Alice describes her mother’s habits as such: "Before she left home for the fields she watered her flowers, chopped up the grass and laid out new beds. When she returned from the fields she might divide clumps of bulbs, dig a cold pit, uproot and replant roses, or prune branches from her taller bushes or trees- until night came and it was too dark to see.” (Walker 150).
The colors used in the painting are very vivid yet rich in depth. A combination of high chroma and low chroma gives the picture its dep... ... middle of paper ... ...oul. Maybe Vigee-LeBrun had this idea when painting and wanted the eyes of the people she painted to show the souls and the life of the people instead focusing on features that were less valuable. “The Grafin von Schonfeld with her Daughter” is very interesting to look at. It shows history and context of the lives of the 1700’s.
When we look into a mirror we tend to see ourselves differently than what is really there. An interesting nontraditional vanitas type painting that gives a great example of this is Pablo Picasso’s Girl Before a Mirror painted in 1932. The visual elements, unique design, and iconography that Picasso used smoothly communicates the theme of mortality while also influencing contemplation of self. There are many visual elements that help to balance the composition. The woman on the left and her mirrored image on the right gives the painting a symmetrical balance.
The colors represented her indivi... ... middle of paper ... ...epresented the woman in Sethe’s past, and that made her feel complete again. She was also starting to enjoy her freedom of life for the first time. This was the only time Morrison made Sethe look happy and confident. This confidence did not last a long time for her, but she expressed it by using bright and cheerful colors in clothing and nature. Bright and beautiful colors brought the family together in Beloved.
The painting is set deep in the forest, where the mother and her children are enjoying a pleasant spring afternoon. The blurred background of the piece brings the figures to the front of the painting creating a more personal situation for each viewer. Incidentally, this creates the effect of a personal link between the viewer and the figures in the painting. The peasant woman is depicted in plain clothing by using very dull colors; on the other hand the wealthier woman is painted in more vibrant colors to describe her social status. Overall, the composition seems to be a commentary of the social circumstances of the time.
This is also reflected in the extensive metaphors used in this poem. The most obvious of these being the first few lines in which Burns compares his love with a newly bloomed flower full of “life”. There are ... ... middle of paper ... ...re used to express the extent of his affection for this woman, and were not meant to instill any type of gloom or sadness, in an otherwise happy, cheerful love poem. The author was just wanting to try and create a powerful, moving, poem using overblown and extensive metaphors, which could easily confuse a reader into to making all sorts of interpretations instead of the intended meaning. This poem both focuses on the eternality of ones love, but also the time that is spent on earth.
An impressionist is an artist that creates a painting as if you would see in real life, for example a realistic painting (The Art Story Modern Art Insight. "Claude Monet.") I prefer Picasso, but Monet also influenced me in many ways. I always love to capture a moment, the sunset, the ocean, or just a person. But people just figure to take out their phones and take a photo, but that is very unlike me.
The fact she lives in a cottage shows she is of lower class, this is also supported by her being Hardened by sun and air, showing she worked in fields and on the land. We learn the maiden was happy with the life she had. Contented with my cottage mates, Not mindful I was fair. The words cottage mates show that her friends are of the same class as her. Using Alliteration in Contented... Cottage helps with the rhythm of the poem and re-inforces she was content and happy and adds to the hurt she is now feeling.
As the sun rises in the distance, she lets the light encompass her. The sun’s rays grow on the horizon, and the entire mountain seems to pause for that moment, just to honor the beauty of this particular sunrise. The girl watches in the distance and lets this moment surround her. The anticipation of the mountain, the embrace of the sun, the smell of the world around her. With a pang she decides that if she had to choose a moment to live in forever, this moment, right now, it wouldn’t be so bad.
Remarkably, not one of the corn stalks bent. It appeared the other rows of vegetables were also unharmed. It appeared the tornado left the garden alone, or, so the children thought at first. Jessie’s Fun-in-the-Sun Sunflowers looked defiant after the tornado. Megan wondered if her flowers were safe.
