Do the works have political messages or are they attempting to persuade the viewer in some way?

Purpose
This assignment asks you to practice the close looking and interpretive skills we’ve been learning in unit two (Visual Art). You will complete a comparative analysis of two works of art, noting their similarities and differences. This is a specific type of #interpretivelens that will allow you to make an argument about how we might understand these works.
You are not required to conduct research or consult secondary sources. The assignment is designed to help you practice your own close looking and interpretive skills. Your analysis should be written to persuade the #audience that your interpretation of the works is plausible based on the evidence you provide.
use this painting ( this first painting ) to:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CWwU809BFHpCMheI62qkqBs4QhoeT3qA/view
1. Pay special attention to formal elements and themes you notice in the work. What do you think the work is about? What formal elements of the work help convey the theme? What effect does the work have on the viewer, and what formal elements create that effect?
2. Write a 150-250 word interpretation of the one work. Be sure to note the title and artist of the work in your first sentence. Use 2-3 pieces of evidence to support your interpretation. The evidence should be formal elements of the work (e.g., the subject/scene depicted, composition, movement, pattern, plane, color, value, use of light, shape line, brushstrokes, materials/medium, etc.).
Explore works from the Barjeel Art Foundation exhibit, “Memory Sews Together Events that Hadn’t Previously Met,” and choose a piece of art from the exhibit that you think relates in some way to the first work you wrote about. this link: https://www.barjeelartfoundation.org/exhibitions/memory-sews-together-events-that-hadnt-previously-met/
Look closely at the second work of your choosing, again paying attention to its themes and formal elements.
Write 300-500 words comparing and contrasting the two works you’ve chosen to look at at closely. Note similarities and differences in their themes and formal elements and then explain how those similarities/differences help us understand the works. Remember, your goal is to make a persuasive argument about how the audience should understand these works. You might find some of the following prompts helpful as you think about the two pieces of art in conversation with each other. You do not have to answer all of these prompts. Use the most useful questions as a guide:
What are the subjects or settings of the works? Are they similar or different?
Do the works evoke the same affect, mood, or feeling in the viewer? Why? What formal elements contribute to these feelings?
Do the works have political messages or are they attempting to persuade the viewer in some way? If so, what techniques do they use to do so and are they effective on you as a viewer? Why or why not?
Do the works use similar artistic techniques or materials? Are they used to the same or different effect?
Compare/contrast the color palette of the works. Are the colors similar or different? Are the hues bright or muted? Are the colors drawn from nature or are they non-naturalistic? How does the use of color in the works affect the viewer’s response to them?
Compare/contrast the composition of objects in the works. Where is your eye drawn in each? How are the objects or figures arranged in relationship to each other?
Compare/contrast the perspective in the works. Is there a depth of field and do objects/figures appear three-dimensional or is there little depth and objects appear flat?
In order to receive a 3 or 4, you will need to submit both an interpretation of one of the five works of art listed in step #1 “Mourners,” 1959 and a compare/contrast analysis of the work you selected and a second one of your choosing from the Barjeel collection**. For example if you select “Mourners” for step one, your compare/contrast analysis should compare/contrast “Mourners” to a work you select from the Barjeel collection. Your interpretation of the first work should include a statement of what you believe the artwork expresses, means, or is otherwise about supported by 2-3 pieces of evidence. Your evidence should be based on close observation of the formal properties of the work (composition, subject, color, medium, etc). Your compare/contrast analysis should make an argument about how the #audience should understand the meaning of these two works in relationship to each other. This means you should have a thesis and 2-3 pieces of supporting evidence based on close observation and a comparison of the formal properties of the works. The work you turn in should be written for a #audience of your peers in this class and the instructor. Your goal is to persuade us that your interpretations are plausible based on the evidence you present.

Personal Essay
Answer each of the following questions with a minimum of one, but no more than three, typed pages
in Times New Roman 12pt font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins, and clearly labeled.
1. Mahler’s music is in many ways a culmination of musical developments from the late
Classical, Romantic, and early Modern eras. His clear melodies are infused with deep
emotion, lush orchestration, and intense physicality demanded from orchestral players.
What did you think of the performance of Mahler’s 5th Symphony you watched for class?
How did the musicians express their emotions? What was the conductor like, the man
leading the orchestra? Did any of the paintings we discussed in class come to mind while
watching? Any of the literature or opera? The earlier works of Mozart and Berlioz? Please
specifically refer to at least two of the cultural artefacts we discussed in earlier classes
when answering this question.
