Much of analysis that we did were based on physical observations. We incorporated our knowledge of contextual history in an attempt to understand not only the art but also the artist’s motivations. A fantastic example would be Noblewoman, a piece from the Roman period. We analyzed the subject’s beautiful – and perhaps expensive – earrings as an indication of her wealth. The analysis that we wish would have done more is the examination of the artist’s techniques in creating his or her pieces. If we had more time, we wish we could have done more of a technical analysis of the works of art.

Looking Back Into the Future

by: Debbie Weng, Riya Kaushal


We looked at the colors and the techniques the artist employed in his painting. We failed to address the more formal properties to the painting, such as historical context and artist's intention, which we delved into more in depth later on during the workshop. If we had more time, I would have explored the museum and related paintings a bit more.

Cartonage of Nespanetjerenpare

by: Destany Batista, Christopher Tang, Jonathan Hakimian


The Cartonage of Nespanetjerenpare immediately caught our attention with its tall stature, vibrant colors, and intricate details. Because we had a plethora of audio, it was difficult to decide which aspects of our conversations were most significant to our understanding of the piece. However, we managed to create a concise and comprehensive video that promotes the main ideas expressed in our intellectual exploration of the cartonage.

A Cold Winter Night

by: Erik Niu, Monica Chan


We described the painting. We tried to interpret what the artist is trying to say. In addition, we talked about which objects in the painting represent which things the artist was talking about. We didn't discuss the content of the painting as much.

Clouds over the Black Sea

by: Nabila C., Adina L., Nazija A., Jimmie S.


We didn't really analyze the formal properties or analysis very much, but we did mention the depth perception! We also could have been more in depth about historical context; however, we did mention context in the artist's life which helped us interpret the artist's intentions.

Night At The Museum

by: Michelle Cohen and Datya Baron


Our analysis consisted of interpretation, description, interrogation, content and formal properties. We didn't analyze the historical content of our piece or the artist's intention. If we had more time we would have liked to edit and put together our video clip more professionally.

Night At the Museum

by: Emily David, Chana Tropp, Rose (Hannah) Chaikin, Josh Sacker, Shifali Chambers, Zach Schechter, Joe Fernandez


We analyzed the features of the sculptures, discussing their facial presentation and what it might mean. We also compared and contrasted the two pieces together. There was also a discussion about the style used by the artist. We didn't however discuss the time that the piece was written in, and had there been more time we might have discussed the historical context in relation to how the piece was created.

Soundsuit Analysis

by: Zena sallam, Mariyah Farooqi, Joan Nieh


We analyzed the visual aspect of the mannequin, the glittery black body suit with red flowers and beadwork throughout. We also analyzed the meaning of the cage with flowers that was encompassing the mannequin's body. We analyzed what might have been the artist's message that he wanted to convey to the spectators. We didn't analyze the time period the suit was created in, or the history of the suit. Analyze more about the artist and the purpose of the suit, if it was ever actually worn or modeled.

Uncommon Woman

by: Dan Jung, Ryan Seerattan, David Kang, Shira Shkedi


There were many different kinds of analysis in our conversation at the museum that described our painting. Firstly, we discussed the historical context of the painting, Kiss Me and You'll Kiss the 'Lasses by Lilly Martin Spencer. The painting was created around the 1800-1890 — the painting's subject was very uncommon at this time period. Spencer was trying to communicate to the viewers that it was uncommon at this time for a independent female artist to be so bold. Furthermore, we went on to describe the painting physically; from size and matter to content. We could have analyzed the formal properties more — specifically, we could've talked about the different lines, shapes, material, and composition.
