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.

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.

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.

A Night At The Brooklyn Museum

by: Sunhee Nduwimana & Uju Nwaigwe


As a group, we did not fully focus on the interrogation aspect of the art. This can be seen as a weakness because it is important to ask questions for further understanding. Also, as a group we focused on our opinions rather on the artist's intentions. Overall, this night was a great realistic experience for all who attended.

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

George Taylor II

by: Tanja Miketic, Benard Slawomirski, William Dadario, Bart Rosenzweig


We analyzed the portrait of George Taylor II, painted by Rembrandt Peele. We started our analysis by focusing on describing the painting, then moved on to studying its formal properties. We ended by discussing subject matter and content. We unfortunately did not make mention of the painting's historical context or the artist's intention.

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.

A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie

by: Joseph Gurbo, Simon Heimowitz and Shana Ravvin


We mostly focused on our description of the painting and describing what we found interesting or what formal properties we found to be beautiful. We also discussed historical context and content such as when the painting was made and what it was depicting.

Something that our discussion lacked was "interrogation". We did not ask any questions while interpreting the piece. One thing that we would like to know more about was what message the artist was trying to convey through the painting. If we had more time we would do more research.
