Principal: Unity Value refers to the differences of relative lightness and darkness. A part of the painting is in sunlight and a the other part is shrouded in a shadow. There are two small rocks, one in the sunlight and the other in the shadow. The hard rocks are said to resemble the reality of life. In 1980, Dalí was forced to retire from painting due to a motor disorder that caused permanent trembling and weakness in his hands. ALbrecht Durer-
Young Hare Texture refers to the qualities of a surface that seem tangible or to the implied visual representation of such surface qualities. Durer made the rabbit look as if it could be felt because of it's furry texture. The rabbit is in scale to what a real rabbit would look like. The head, feet, ears, and body are all proportional. Durer made a thousand drawings and watercolors and is considered to be the greatest printmaker of all time.

Rhythm or movement refers to the suggestion of motion that is shown by various elements. Falling Water is a house that was built over a waterfall. As you can see, the water looks as if it is falling since the photo was taken while it was in motion. The final fee was $155,000 (Included $8,000 architect’s fees, and $4,500 for installed walnut furnishings Form refers to an object appearing to be three dimensional.

Shape implies spatial form and is usually perceived as two-dimensional. Pattern refers to the repetition or reoccurrence of a design element, exact or varied, which establishes a visual beat. Henri Matisse was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, whose art pieces altered the course of modern art and affected the art of several generations of younger painters. Beasts of the Sea' can be seen at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Colors all come from the three primaries and black and white. They have three properties – hue, value, and intensity. This painting uses three main colors which are red, blue and white. Balance is the impression of a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced.

She used a weathered cow's skull to represent the enduring spirit of America or depicting Jesus Christ on the cross with touches on the strong ties to Christianity. The Eiffel Tower has depth, length, and width and resides in space. All of the components of the Eiffel Tower work together, to create a beautiful, flowing building that results in harmony. The Eiffel Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel. . When this huge tower was officially opened in 1889, it was the highest structure of the planet, it is now the 5th largest structure. Element: Line M.C Escher- Drawing Hands Escher drew many lines in the drawing to look both three and two dimensional. Line is when a point moves through space, which Escher was able to demonstrate thoroughly. He created this while he was in Holland in 1948. M.C. Escher, during his lifetime, made 448 lithographs, woodcuts and wood engravings and over 2000 drawings and sketches The End Thanks For Watching!
