Standing Woman

by: Janelle Hyppolite, Leslie Epps, Meena Natarajan


Our group analyzed the subject matter and features of the piece at the museum. We also questioned the artist's intentions and the significance of the subject matter. Lastly, we analyzed the piece in relation to the time period in which it was created and made assertions about the influence the norms of the time period had on the artist and the piece.

Two Ivans and Oksana

by: Ariana Campbell, Nohelly Derosiers, Kayla Fontaine


We discussed the description, formal properties, subject matter, and historical context. However, we did not interrogate the work of art…our main focus was the sleeping father.

Findings at the Brooklyn Museum

by: Taylor Burgos, Anisa Lajka, Katlyn Palmatier, Briana Atkinsr


We should have focused more on the formal properties of the piece such as the lines, shape and scale. Instead, we focused more on the colors, shading and the contrast between light and dark.

The Doge’s Palace

by: Leeba Erlbaum, David Fodiman, Alexandros Gloor, Victoria McGrath


Things we analyzed:

– the objective form of the work
– the use of color and geometry
– the use of light and focus
– the perspective of the painter
– its relation to philosophy (Plato's world of ideas)
– the subject matter of the work as opposed to its form

Brooklyn Museum Analysis

by: Alexandra Kononenko, Benjamin Freeman, Megan Govin, Guy Villette, Luisa Anaya, Danny Jimenez, Jehan Miah


We analyzed both the details, setting, and possible significance or use. We did not analyze enough the emotional response that the piece evokes in us. We could've researched the historical background of the images depicted.

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.

An Out-of-Doors Study

by: Claudine Guerra, Emily Tepe, Simona Popa


We did all of the specified types of analysis with the exception of historical context. If we had more time, we would've tried to analyze the historical background more and tried to decipher more of the artist's meaning. We went into depth regarding description and formal properties, specifically the colors, lines, brush strokes, and general composition of the painting.

Cecelia Beaux, Mrs. Roberts

by: Priyanka Thomas, Soon-Hee Shimizu, Abir Petiwala, Sam George, and Ariane Marchese


Our group analyzed Ceclia Beaux’s Mrs. Robert Abbe at the Brooklyn Museum. We discussed multiple facets of the painting and focused on the artistic choices of Beaux. The highly experimental style of the painter portrays the originality and peculiarity of her work. The dress in particular reflected this unusual style. At first glance, it seems like a messily painted dress, but her life long devotion to art allows us to view this style as an intentional choice. We connected this dress to the defiance of a woman in a time period where women were expected to be compliant and unoriginal. This was a reflection of the artist herself, because she was an unmarried woman, unusual in her time.
