With the painting, "Tokyo Street with Pachinko Parlor ll"
Title- Tokyo Street with Pachinko Parlor ll. Artist- Yvonne Jacquette. Composition- painting, oil on a canvas.
Median of the Art/Technique of the Artist: For this part I chose to take a picture with a painting of a street in Tokyo. The pictures gives no justice to the painting when you actually see it in person. When I first saw the painting I was drawn to it because you can see every stroke the artist made. Seeing the different stroke lines, colors and the painting as a whole just really made it that much better to look at. I really think that it is a great piece of art and you can really see how much time the artist put into creating this beautiful piece.
Wall of pottery. No artist or title were given.
Design of the Museum: The part of the museum that appealed to me was the wall of pottery. It was given to the museum by Robert H. Axline, as you can see from the top of the picture. All of the pieces of pottery are from different dynasties throughout time. Starting with the Neolithic period (c. 2500-2000 BCE) all the way to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It appeals to me because it is such a huge case of pottery, you walk into the room and it is the first thing that you look at. After reading about the pottery and seeing how old each of the different pieces are it is crazy to me that every piece is in such good condition. They are beautiful pieces of art and the details are amazing. I wonder how people were able to create such pieces in the time that they did.
Title- Family. Artist- Agustin Carenas. Composition- sculpture made of bronze with brown patina.
Art and Core Values: The title of this piece of art says it all. Family has always been one of core values as a person. I have a very big family and we are all really close to each other. When I first saw this piece of art my first thought was my family, before even seeing what the title was. Right away I knew what the artist was trying to portray, two parents with a child on their lap. When I saw this sculpture it made me happy because it me thinking about my family. I thought of my parents and sisters and how I missed them so much since starting college. This sculpture better helps me understand what I cherish (my family) because it helped me see that I will always be my parents child. Not in a derogatory way, but in the way that my parents will always be there for me and always look out for me no matter what because I am their daughter.
Title- Going to the fair. Artist- Helen Hyde. Composition-color woodblock prints.
Art and the Good Life: I chose this particular piece of art because the print itself represents the good life. It represents the good life because of what is going on in the print. It is young and old people traveling to the fair. In that particular moment the good life for all of the people in the print is getting to the fair and enjoying the fair. There is a little narrative next to the piece that is there to explain the piece and give a little more information on the artist. It explains the painting as "a charming narrative subject" and says that the print represents "a dreamy image". The print itself and the narrative show that this piece represents the good life.
