Institution Professor Date Chapter 1 On the left side it is a blurred portrait of a woman shown as squatting and very closely facing another seated creature who can be said to be an old man at the dark background holding her left shoulder. On the right side is a portrait of an old woman seated holding a walking stick. The artist used curved lines to create the comfort and calmness that the woman is extending the other man (Marchiori 95). The woman is the comfort of this old man. The woman is placed in the foreground for the viewer to be able to make a greater emphasis on her while placing the old man at the rear and blocked and unclear background. To the right the artist used diagonal lines to indicate the unstable situation bewildering or surrounding the old man. The old man is clearly shown seated object making every aspect close and function together. The two objects are portrayed each facing own direction as if they are not performing in the same motion. The rear one seems to be making different movement from the front one thus making their composition uncoordinated. 2. Which artist comes closest to your personal style? In what ways? The second image is well prepared and adheres closely to formalism and therefore brings out the best personal style. The artist has clearly demonstrated various principles of composition and makes the artwork excellent. Work Cited Bergeron Vincent and Dominic M. Lopes. "Aesthetic theory and aesthetic science."
