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.

Winter Scene In Brooklyn by Francis Guy

by: Serene Rivera, Chloe Carter-Daves, Jacob David, Sammy Wagman


We did a lot of description. We didn't do nearly enough interpretive analysis, and we didn't ask many questions, perhaps it's because we took a lot of our personal interpretive analysis as given, perhaps due to the incredible detail of the picture, which makes us feel as if there is less room for interpretation, even if it is. We gave a lot of historical context, perhaps due to our knowledge of American History, and our knowledge may as well have affected our interpretation, having thought we knew the context well.

Two Ivans and Oksana

by: Ariana Campbell, Nohelly Derosiers, Kayla Fontaine


We discussed the description, formal properties, subject matter, and historical context. However, we did not interrogate the work of art…our main focus was the sleeping father.

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 We didn't analyze the historical content of our piece or the artist's intention.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.

Portrait of Anita Ramirez in Black

by: Emilee Carratala and Miriam Fried


We described what we saw in the painting, discussed the historical context, and asked questions which we attempted to answer. We also discussed the difference between this painting and others from its time and we explored the artist's intention behind the piece.

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.

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.

Mrs. David Forman and Child

by: Kimberly Villalobos, Jacqueline Kim


We did description and formal properties, but we didn't do interrogation, subject matter, and historical context. We would have liked to gotten around to historical context if we had more time.

Night at the Museum – Portrait of a Lady

by: Melissa D'Angelo, Alex Matuszewski, Elizabeth D'Angelo, Leah Herzberg, Cheyenne Madrid


We used the analysis of description, interrogation, formal properties, subject matter, historical context and artist's intention. We used all of them and didn't really leave anything out. If we had more time we definitely would've talked more about the painting in general.

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.
