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.

George Washington

by: Nathan Vulakh, Vadim Mell, Matthew Tuckman, Michael Itshakov, and Gabriel Vizgan


We looked at the symbolism behind the position of Washington, the objects in the painting, and the different aspects of the paint. We didn't pay attention to the art method. We would have like to pay more attention to his paint style if we had more time.

Night at the Brooklyn Museum

by: Manuel Sojan and Qing Ning Huang


We analyzed several features of the work of art. For instance, we reflected upon the historical context in great depth. This painting was created during the Depression Era. We evaluated to see how this historical time period could affect the emotions of the subject of the painting. However, we forgot to focus more on the formal properties of the painting, as we spent most of the time looking into the description and interpretation of the artwork. If we had more time, we would do some background research on the painting and the artist himself, and then apply the knowledge we gained to better understand the implications of the painting.

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.

Columbus Before The Queen

by: Andrew Palacios, Samuel Meyerovich, Ashir Raffe, Daniel Ostrom


The historical significance of this piece is one that echoes the discovery of the New World. This discovery, in turn, sparked the interest of Europeans to build what is America today. For that reason, it is incredible how Columbus is the centerpiece of the painting and is thus wearing bright red clothing. The artist's intentions for this piece is to demonstrate the power that the New World – America – already has despite not being influenced by colonization. This is further presented by the use of bright colors around Columbus and those near him. The proud look of the subject of the painting is contrasted by the varying expressions of the king, queen, and royal subjects. Nevertheless, this is a powerful piece due to the foreshadowing of American values, culture, and civilization that will begin to emerge in the near future within the context of this masterpiece.

“Last Days of Pompeii” James Hamilton

by: Michael Miranda, Adam McKoy, Christo Vairamon, Ishraq Khan, Mohammed Kallash


We did mostly literal observation regarding the use of colors and brightness. We touched upon emotional reactions. We didn't use very technical art critic terms as we lack the expertise. We would like to have had more time to edit the video.

spacelander bike

by: Caleb Chang, Thomas Kim, Vikash Tewari, Yusuf Wong


We described the features of the bike very distinctly. We examined the practical purposes as well as the scientific details of how the bike works. We also looked at the time frames the bike seemed to fit in. We didn't go too in-depth about the color contrasts of the bike or how it was made. Perhaps we would like to examine the process of how the bike was built. For example, was it spray painted or brush painted; did machines build it or was it hand made; etc.

Egyptian Art

by: Nicole Budzinski, Marlena Osei, Grace Ronan


We used description, interrogation, formal properties, historical context and artist's intention. We didn't really use subject matter/ content. We could of used more historical context. If we had more time we would add music and maybe include more photos. We need more specific description within the imovie.
