Chapter 2:1 TEKS 1A, 3A, 4B Objectives: As a student I will use description, analysis, interpretation and evaluation to critique artworks I will explain how art critics use the criteria of design quality, expressiveness, and originality to evaluate art.
Vocabulary: description: the facts in an art work, such as objects, people, shapes and colors. elements of art: the building blocks of art: shape, color, form, line, space, texture, and value
Vocabulary Continued : Analysis: the examination of the relationships among the facts (objects, people, shapes, colors)in the artwork Principles of design: Balance, emphasis, rhythm, movement, repetition, contrast, and unity The methods or techniques that artist use to organize or design artworks by controlling and ordering the elements of design (Line, color, shape, space, form, value, texture). Composition: The act of organizing the elements of an artwork into a harmoniously unified whole.
The first step in criticism: Description: stick to the facts-no opinions Auguste Renior: Luncheon of the Boating Party 1880 oil on canvas What objects do you see? How many objects do you see? What colors, shapes, and line do you see? Read the first two paragraphs on page 20 and print what you actually see in the picture.
What colors are used ? How many people do you see? Did he use white areas? What type of clothing are the people wearing formal, casual, informal, winter, summer, spring, autumn Where are the people located? Locate some of the most important lines? Are the colors warm or cool? Is there a secondary color? Is there a mood? Is there unity and balance? Using the Elements and principles of ART What is the subject of the work? Notice how many different colors are seen in the foliage Look at the different depictions of light reflected in the white table cloth and napkins, What other colors does Renior use to convince you the table cloth is white and the napkins are a different white?
Analysis? Notice how the group below form a triangle. How do the lines of sight among the three people add interest to the composition? What is the relationship among the objects (principles of design) Do they clash or harmonize? Are they balanced? Is there variety? Ask yourself these questions… Is there unity without monotomny?
Art criticism a systematic discussion of the characteristics of an art work, usually involving four stages: description analysis interpretation and judgment What will you be describing as you analyze the composition of an artwork? Principles of design or how the artist relate things to each other in the art Asymmetrical: a feeling of balance attained when the visual units on either side of a vertical axis are actually different but are placed in the composition to create a “felt” balance of the total artwork Symmetrical: a balanced arrangement in which the parts of a composition are organized to that one side duplicate or mirrors the other
Art criticism a systematic discussion of the characteristics of an art work, usually involving four stages: description interpretation explanation of the meaning of the artwork Using the ART What is going on in Renior’s Luncheon on the Boating Party? What is the relationship between these people and why? What is the spirit of the painting?
Unity: describes they way in which an artwork is treated as a single, indivisible whole Variety: describes the differences within the artwork, subject matter, visual elements, and materials. This abstract painting offers the viewer multiple optical effects. Why isn’t balance an issue in this work? The pond in the center of this painting serves as its dominate element. What is it that draws your attention to this feature? Josef Alerts, Homage to the Square: Glow 1966 Acrylic on Canvas Robert S. Duncanson, Blue Hole, Flood Waters, Little Miami 1851 Oil on Canvas

What area or part of this painting seems most important or dominate? Which paintings are symmetrical? Renior AlbertsDuncanson
What is a metaphor? ) Art Criticism: Name some metaphors? Print 5 metaphors? Select a painting from this chapter and print a metaphor for that painting? What is the style of this painting? Why do you think the artist included the glimpse of a river view? History: Renior included his friends and fellow impressionist in the Luncheon of the Boating party. They would often gather in the village of Chatou on the Seine River to rent boats and dine at Maison Fouranise. Occasionally Renior traded his paintings for lodging at this restaurant and small hotel. He probably painted this picture while visiting and revised it at his studio. How does the river view help you to understand the painting?
Evaluation: the process to determine the quality or lasting importance of a work ). Art Criticism: Formalism: a way of using the elements of art and the principles of design to evaluate art. Expressionism: how effectively the work reflects a theme or world- view. Aesthetics: appreciating something for its sheer beauty. Print three critiques of Renior’s Luncheon of the Boating Party, from the three different perspectives: Formalist, expressionist, and someone who treasured originality How important is the monetary value of a work of art?
What do the three art works on these pages have in common? Art Criticism: How do you think the later artist might have been influenced by the earlier paintings. In what ways is Georges’ painting original, even though it explores a similar subject History: Supper at Emmaus illustrates the biblical story in which the recently crucified but risen from the dead Christ blesses the bread, thus revealing his identity to the two men whom he had joined as they walked to Emmus. Michelangelo was criticized for his use of common people as models and making his painting too realistic. Caravaggio led a violent life. He went from one scrape with the law to the next and finally fled to Rome when he killed a man. Michealangelo Caravaggio Auguste Renior Paul Georges Supper at Emmuas 1601 Luncheon of the Boating Party 1880-1 Back Yard 1976
