Number 48 Art Critique

by: Hailey Lam, Julia Duze, & Stephanie Bondietti


During our conversation at the museum, we mainly analyzed what was there in the art piece. Rather than debating the presumed history, we opted to observe only the superficial aspects of the painting. We didn't discuss the significance of each shape or composition of the work, or the juxtaposition of the shapes, but had we the time we would have.

Southern Landscape

by: Annalissa Thomas, Serina Mathew, Preeya Ninan, Roby Daniel


We used description, interrogation, formal properties, and artist's intention. We didn't use subject matter or historical context and we would've liked to use these types of analysis if we had more time.

Analysis of Gilt Figure of Marichi

by: Aaron Yam, Emily Li, Justin Pacquing, Jasmine Wong, and Yu Qing Xu


Gilt Figure of Marichi, 18th century

At the Brooklyn Museum, we chose to discuss the Gilt Figure of Marichi, because we felt it encompassed many traits and abilities and plenty for us to interpret. We questioned the importance of sculpture, why it was made out of gilt bronze, what each item in her hands could represent, how the she was ornamented, her position both during the 18th century and her physical position, amongst many other things. We wish that we had discussed more about the sculptureā€™s historical context. Although we did discuss the spiritual importance that the sculpture held, as we made the video we realized that we never mentioned that the sculpture was probably meant for worship rather than decoration.

Macaulay Night at the Museum 2016

by: Alex Jones, Anton Khrystenko, Sarah Ustoyev, Daisy Waltermaurer


We did physical and contextual analysis while we were at the museum. We didn't do historical analysis. We would have liked to have done a more in-depth conversation on the physical, contextual, and historical aspects of the painting. This would have given us a better understanding of what we were looking at.

Nydia by Randolph Rogers

by: Sabrina Abrahim, Sarah Coopersmith and Yola Haber


We really looked deeply into Roger's sculpture. We described, interrogated, analyzed the formal properties and talked about the content, historical context and the artist's intentions in creating Nydia. If we had more time, we would have talked more about the purpose and the materials used in the sculpture.

Scene from the Tale of Nastagio degli Onesti in Boccaccio’s “Decameron”

by: Becky Chakkalo and Marilyn Terzi


We analyzed in many different ways at Night in the Museum. We used a lot of description, and then used our descriptions in order to form formal analysis. We also had a lot of questions regarding this painting and interrogated a lot. We didn't really touch upon the artist's intentions. We questioned them but never really drew conclusions. If we had more time I would have liked to explore more about the historical context of this specific painting.

Web of Life

by: Shabab Karim, Derek Lee, Miar Elaskandrany, Amber Jin, Mohamed Abid


Our conversation mostly included descriptive analysis. We also used formal analysis, and we interpreted the artists intentions. However, we failed to use interrogation analysis, content analysis, and historical analysis in our audio file. We did include the historical analysis in the video though.

Herter Brothers’ Mantle

by: Jadyn Marshall, Matt Denaro, Benji Freeman, Ashley Singh


Description, formal properties and subject is what we mostly focused on. We guessed about the historical context. We could have discussed more the historical context of the piece.

Bobo Masks

by: Heather Trazino, Jordan Williams, Caroline Zuba, Muhammad ?


Our analysis focused on the appearance, symbolism, and historical background of Bobo masks. We did not go into much detail on formal properties such as scale and composition because they were not as applicable to these pieces as some others. If we had more time, we would have liked to research the culture further and understand why the horns were added to the masks.
