"Leon Bakst (Russian Artist)." Encyclopedia Britannica Online. Encyclopedia Britannica, n.d. Web. 11 Dec. 2012. Two Contrasting Artworks It is the girl's birthday and the guy gives her flowers but that's not all she wants. She expected more. So immediately, he leaped back into the air and kissed her which resulted in her happiness. Title: I and the Village
Size: 6' 3 5/3 x 59 5/8" (192.1cm x 151.4cm) Title: Dawn at Saint-Paul
Produced: 1968
Size: 24 1/2" x 16 3/4" (62.2cm x 42.5cm) Oil on cardboard Museums The New York Museum of Modern Art is the home to some of the best Chagall paintings; I and the Village and The Birthday Analyze: The Birthday The colors that Chagall uses are all very bland which show that he is painting a subtle scene.
The textures in his painting do not affect the overall artwork; some examples of this are the watermelon and the cloth in the background.
The focal point of the painting is the man kissing the girl.
The lightest object in the painting is the wall, and it is right behind the man and the woman. The light wall brings out the man and the women, making them the focal point.
If you look closely, you can see that the man’s face is somewhat gray and kind of blurred; this shows that the man is moving. Interpret: The Birthday This painting depicts a lot of emotion as the man is trying to make the woman happy.
Srong relationship
Chagall's life
Why is the girl facing the other way?
Why can’t she just face the other way so it would be easier for the man to kiss her? Evaluation: The Birthday Original artwork
I think that this artwork would have a benefit for others if they knew the reasoning behind this artwork. If they understood this painting, they would be able to have feelings for it as well.
For example, if a couple was in a fight, and then they looked at this painting, it could bring back old memories or make them realize their love for each other.
The man leaping into the air to kiss the woman arouses a lot of feelings because the man is going through a lot of work in order to make the woman happy.
The woman is facing the other way which shows how women can sometimes be very reserved and can expect too much out of people. http://www.bestpaintingsforsale.com/painting/Marc_Chagall/birthday-9651.html Describe: Carmen Type: Lithograph on Arches paper
Painted: 1966
Image Size: 39 1/2 inches x 25 11/16 inches
Foreground: buildings and a city setting
Middle ground: white and blue fluffy cloud or mist which has people with pale skin dancing on top of.
Background: people in stands watching a circular circus bellow
When I look at this picture I instantly see red and my eyes are drawn to the blue in the middle. I see a circle as a circus, people and the shapes of buildings. Analyze: Carmen Reds to make a bold, bright circus theme
Implied texture is used in this painting because the middle ground looks fluffy like cloud or mist and the buildings look hazy not sharp showing they are more of the foreground or background.
Light is used to make the buildings on the left side lighter and have a glowing effect on the dancers. Also, I think it creates an illusion of space between the foreground and the middle ground. Judgement/Evaluation: Carmen Interpret: Carmen Materials/Medias Timeline: Part 1 Shortened Timeline Canvas
Stained glass
Theater sets
Ceramics and sculpture
Chagall used Jewish themes to inspire his artwork and transformed Fauvism and Cubism into his own folklore style. Stained Glass memorial at United Nations Buildings in 1964 Ceramic plate titled "Moses" Darker Hue Implied texture: cloud-like mist as the middle ground Soft,colorful, playful clothing Light source on the left http://ineselo69.blogspot.com/2008/08/arthur-garfield-dove.html Léon Bakst Léon Bakst visited St. Petersburg very often
During his visits, taught at the Zvantseva school where Marc Chagall was one of his students
Bakst encouraged Chagall's artistic ability and this motivated Chagall a lot because his dad did not support Chagall's interest in art Art Theory: Emotionalism Most of Chagall's paintings represent a lot emotion. Every one of his paintings changes your mood. Rule of thirds
Diagonal movement
Foreground, middle ground, background Symbols: white bird which could be a dove symbolizing peace and harmony with the scene or a person.
Carmen is a traditional play and because of this Chagall made this painting very saturated and vivid.
The musician with the mandolin represents Chagall's friend.
The background is a bullfight not a circus as I originally thought.
The play Carmen has a lot of passion, hate, and love which is another reason for the abundant reds and dramatic appearance.
This piece is a good representation of Chagall's work because I get a whimsical sense from it as many of Chagall's works give. Signed in the corner by Marc Chagall and is number of an edition out of 200. Also, was published in 1966 which was a year that Chagall was alive in.
My own taste doesn't prejudice my judgment because I focus on elements and symbols instead of my preferred concepts.
It would benefit people who are fans of the play Carmen or who didn't have the chance to see the play because it represents the drama, some of the characters, and the setting of the play in the piece.
This painting possesses a lot of value because of its accurate representation of a play and its appealing saturation. Also, the way Chagall was able to put symbols and use light and color to enhance his work adds a lot of intrinsic value and worth.
It falls between both catergories because while it is wonderful to look at it doesn't have a signifigant value to every observer. Pablo Picasso, a well-known artist remarked, "When Matisse dies, Chagall will be the only painter left who understands what color really is...his canvases are really painted, not just thrown together... There's never been anybody since Renoir who has the feeling for light that Chagall has." 1911 1985 I and the Village http://ineselo69.blogspot.com/2008/08/arthur-garfield-dove.html Sails Musée National is a museum in France that is fully dedicated to Chagall's paintings and that is where most of them are.
