Rodin’s Burghers of Calais

by: Annmarie Gajdos, Rehmat Sakrani, Stephanie Angus


We included all the different types of analyses; descriptive, interrogation, formal properties, subject matter/content, historical context, and artistic intention, in our conversation. If we had had more time, we would have liked to further analyze the form and historical context of Rodin's sculptures.

Night at the Museum Project

by: Nicole Belenitsky, Richard Tang, Talia Kornreich, & Belinda Wong


This video includes the analysis of the painting "The Outlier" through the lenses of description, formal properties, subject matter/content, historical context, and interpretation. We did not use interrogation for this analysis and if we had more time, we would have like to research the artist's intention and the perspectives during that time.

The Harmony Chair

by: Evan Harris, Matthew Damiani, David Zucker, Irwin G


In our conversations at the museum we analyzed the properties of the work and the historical background. We should have looked more into the alternate perspectives from alternate angles as opposed to taking the chair at face value.

A Legless Bird

by: Serena Chen, Omayra Cen, Jessica Pitts, Megan Jean-Louis, Ashaney Ewes


At Night at the Museum, we talked quite a bit about the description and formal context of this drawing along with with the content and artist's intention while creating this drawing. Toyin Ojih Odutola wanted to objectify whiteness the same way that the majority of our society objectified minorities like blacks, muslims, asians, hispanics, etc. In the description of the drawing, "Non white persons become 'other,' while whiteness, as a category defining those in a historically dominant social position, is left 'unmarked,' unspoken, and undefined– controlling through its supposed invisibility." People walk by this drawing because at first glance it just looks like a blank piece of paper. They fail to take the time to actually take a closer look at the subject and find out what it is that they are REALLY looking at; the same way that most people in our society view minorities. Which leads to prejudices, stereotypes, and social discrimination and racial classification.

Analysis of The Fatalist

by: Sierra Baksh, Katherine Chemas, Ashley Sagesse


Together as a group, we critically analyzed The Fatalist by Alejandro Guzman. We looked at each aspect of the sculpture and discussed what it reminded us of. We didn't historically analyze the sculpture. If we had more time, we would like to match the pictures to what we were discussing at the time in the video and also add text.

A Morning Snow – Hudson River

by: Susan Evans, Reid Vero, Steven Moshier, Brianna Gelsomini, Chunilall Kissoon, Nathaly Garzon


While analyzing A Morning Snow – Hudson River by George Wesley Bellows, we elaborated well upon description, formal properties, content, historical context, and art style. There was room to further develop our ideas on the artist's intention and interrogation.

Macaulay Night at the Museum (2016)

by: Ashley-Mei Torrenti, Zoe Sailer, Anthony Patafio, Joseph Gofman


The analysis we utilized were description, interrogation, formal properties, subject matter, historical context, and the artist's intention. If we had more time we would have liked to add more affects and embellish the presentation more.

A Legless Bird

by: Serena Chen, Omayra Cen, Jessica Pitts, Megan Jean-Louis, Ashaney Ewes


Did: description, formal analysis, historical context, our interpretation of the artist's intention
Didn't do: subject matter/content

If we had more time, we would have liked to further analyze the piece, the author's background, and the works surrounding this one in the Disguise exhibit. We would also have liked to explore the other racial discrimination problems and social issues that minorities face not only in the U.S. but around the world to further understand what the artist would have wanted to express in her work.

Seated Figure of Nakhtsaes

by: Maria Bilello, Denisha Deonarine, Christian Buonamassa


This is the Seated Figure of Nakhtsaes, a headless statue sitting down, which is very faded and dilapidated. We used description, interrogation, and historical context. We weren’t able to use formal properties, subject matter, and artist’s intention. If we had more time, we’d like to delve into the artist’s intention, and compare what he wanted use to take from the piece to what we inferred.
