Exit Ticket:
1. Describe what Art Criticism is.
ALWAYS in this order.

Judith Leyster's, Self-portrait from 1630, measures 29.4 x 25.6 inches. The media is oil on canvas.

In the painting, Leyster is seated in a chair and holding a paintbrush in her right hand, which is resting on the back of the chair. She holds a palette with several paintbrushes and a rag in the other hand. Her face is turned towards the viewer, with a slight smirk on her face. In front of her is an easel with a painting of a man in blue, playing a violin.
Leyster uses an overall dull
color
palette. Her dark red and black dress is juxtaposed next to the delicate
lines
of her white collar and bonnet. She has created simulated
texture
in the satin on her sleeve, and the delicate lacework of her collar and cuff. Contrasting with the dullness of the color scheme, the man in the painting she is working on is wearing blue clothes, much lighter in
value
than the rest of the composition. Although chiaroscuro is used to create
form
, there is not a deep sense of
space,
as there is not much negative
space
.
Wood has employed symmetrical balance in his painting with the two figures. He creates pattern by the lines of the pitchfork being repeated in the seam of the man's overalls. The heads of the figures are given emphasis by being linked to the horizontal lines of the porch roof and the diagonals forming the peak of the roof.
My interpretation of this painting is that Judith Leyster is depicting herself in what would have traditionally been a man's occupation in the 17th century, as a self promotion. It shows of her skills as an artist, with her palette in hand and canvas in progress. She seems to have paused from her painting to turn and speak to the viewer, maybe a patron. Her confident smirk says, "I'm just as good as any male painter."


I enjoy looking at his painting. It is successful in the aesthetic theory of Imitationalism. Leyster has successfully represented her subject; a self-portrait of a confident young artist, engaged in a work in progress.

In her Self-portrait, Leyster uses an overall dull
color
palette to create
unity
. The
contrast
of her dark dress to her white collar and bonnet
draws the viewer's attention to her face. The painting on the easel
balances
her figure on the left.
Movement
is created by the direction of the diagonal paintbrushes in her hands, drawing your eye to the artist, then back to the canvas.
