Off Mount Desert Island Conversation

by: Timothy Mooney, Joseph Ardezzone, Matthew Griffin, Anthony Astarita


The vast majority of what we analyzed was based on what we physically saw and what we thought the meaning was. We analyzed many different components of the painting and why the artists made the particular choices that he did. We failed to look in depth into the historical context of the piece.

Analysis of Art

by: Jason Luna, Alexandra Shoneyin


We analysed the specific designs of the figures and also the hidden meanings of the paintings. We did not analyze the color or tone of the painting and we also didn't explain how the lighting effects the mood of the painting. I would have liked to speak about the connection of that object in comparision to other objects in its collection.

Avarice, Portrait of a Lady

by: Lauren Lazarte, Manuel Francisco Cifuentes, Robert Xhelili, Jonah Green


Reflection Piece:

For our Media Arts Workshop, we chose to analyze Portrait of a Lady by Giovanni Boldini and Avarice by Fernando Mastrangelo. In our analysis we used description, interrogation, formal properties, subject matter, content, the historical context, and artist’s intention. Ultimately, this provided us with an overall sense of the meaning of the art works.

Showgirl by John Carroll

by: Yeniliz Peguero, Michael Pinto, Ashley Dirzis


In this analysis we discussed a lot of the historical context of the painting as well as some of the artist's intentions. We compared this modern painting to a lot of the other older paintings we had seen at the museum. We could have described the painting more and we could have discussed some of the formal properties of the painting such as tone, material and medium.

The Peaceable Kingdom

by: Hannah Bruschi, Vanessa Belford, Johnan Monzon, Lisa Manitta


We talked about historical analysis, and subject matter. We did not discuss formal properties to its full extent but we did mention where the eye is drawn, and we also didn't discuss the author's intent. If we had more time we would have discussed more about paint types and other formal properties.

Brooklyn Museum Art Project

by: Amanda Zhang, Hengyuan (Roy) Lin, Aaron Empedrado, Mindy Aloff


We made a lot of observations by first stating what we saw in the painting. Then once we finished describing what we saw on the surface, we began delving deeper into the implications behind what we saw. We did a lot of comparisons as well. We compared the animals we saw in the painting to other texts that reminded us of it. For instance, we mentioned the "Jungle Book" and "Where the Wild Things Are." By comparing the things we saw in the painting to these texts, it helped us get a better understanding of the artist's intention of painting this. In addition, we used a historical context analysis. Although we had some idea of when the painting was painted, we made assumptions about the subjects we saw in the painting especially the indigenous people and the European explorers. We didn't do a formal properties analysis, and if we had more time we would have talked more about the artist's choices in composition.

MHC: Night at the Museum

by: Will Zeng, Jason Oelbaum, Stacy Shapiro, and Hannah Sverdlov


For both images displayed in the video, we used a variety of descriptions, formal properties, interpretations of the artist's intentions, historical context, and interrogations. Specifically we observed the color contrasts, the size of the canvas, and other formal properties that made up the image of George Washington. In addition, we referred to the historical context of the Revolutionary War and the time period of Washington's inauguration. The following picture depicted the embarkation of the pilgrims, we observed a variety of descriptions, such as the meaning of the rainbow in the background and the light directed on the priest in the center. Moreover, we discussed the historical context and the painter's intentions for his work.

Macaulay Night at the Brooklyn Museum

by: Sandy Xu, Alana Zeng, Joseph Parziale


We addressed the formal aspects of color and scale and the content of the works. If we had more time we would polish the production of the video as well as add commentary on the artists intentions and how the content we described relates with the time the pieces were made.

A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie

by: Rob Norato, Gil Barahman, Vincent Vitiello


We mostly did descriptive analysis, commenting on the size of the painting and all of its features. We didn't really do any historical context, such as the time in history Bierstadt painted it. We also didn't discuss his intention of the painting. If we had more time we would've liked to discuss these aspects of the painting.

Dona Maria by Miguel Cabrera

by: Samantha Silber, Tiffany Tichio, and Eva Kuperman


This piece focused on nobility. It highlighted the emphasis on nobility and royalty within society at the time in which the painting was painted; 1790. If we had more time we would have researched the artist more as well as studied his other pieces. While in the museum we discussed the description and interrogation, but not the other parts of the assignment. Upon completing the project we further analyzed the painting.
