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.

Samantha and Nick’s Video on Portrait of a Lady

by: Samantha Vee & Nicholas Smith


We talked about the piece's formal properties in regards to its color scheme and details. We also focused on the historical context of the painting and the artist's intentions. We did not ask questions about the painting, which we would have done if we had more time.

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.

Untitled (Egungun Series)

by: Shelly Zou, Nickolas Almodovar, Wayne Chim, Bryan Rosendo


First, we observed the various textures and colors the subject wore and the contrasting background. From there, we were able to draw various conclusions such as: the subject wore garments of cultural importance and the outfit itself drew attention away from the person wearing it and to the (what we later discovered) spirit it was depicting.

Ancient Egypt Erotica

by: Janell R. J., Brandon D., Soraya A., Naveera A.


We focused on the meaning and the history behind the work. We could have discussed dimensions, color, and the material used in more detail. If we had more time, we would conduct more research on the work.

The Doge’s Palace

by: Leeba Erlbaum, David Fodiman, Alexandros Gloor, Victoria McGrath


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

A Little Taste Outside of Love

by: Mary Rueth Simone Henderson Gabby Ribaudo


We talked about the physical appearance and qualities in detail to describe the focal point of the piece. We also went in depth of the subject matter and the artist's potential intentions. We also discussed possible historical context from the 1970s. We didn't analyze the painting by asking questions about it which we would have liked to do if we had more time.

Amulets

by: Rebekah Laguerre, Sneha Sajan, Samuel Keselman, Vinila Varghese, Melissa Chan


In retrospect, we should have looked at each amulet individually, and noted the details of each. In particular, we should have noted more of the specific mediums of each amulet. We had a general description as to when the amulet was created (Ancient Egypt) ;however, we did not specify the particular time period. We did not discuss in depth about the intention of the artists, because it was a large collection of amulets. There were bandages at the base of the exhibit that we did not discuss about.

At first we thought they were kids toys, but they were amulets. There was a booklet on the side with all the gods and goddesses, the amulets were based on. We were wondering why the Amulets were made and what they meant. We talked a lot about the materials and the colors, wondering how the dyes were made. We knew the amulets had to do with religion, specifically polytheistic form, because of the depiction of gods and goddesses. We discussed the importance of the afterlife to the ancient Egyptians and how depending on your status, their burial rights were different.

Brooklyn Museum

by: Angelica Maury, Kamar Tazi, Krystle Salvati


As a group, we touched on description, formal properties, subject matter/content, historical context, and artist's intention. We did not touch on the interrogation part of the analysis which looking back would have been better in furthering our conversation. If we were not put under a time constraint, we would have liked to take better quality pictures and had more time with the artwork at the museum.
