This paper assignment is about review of after visiting Musum of modern art in New York to see the works from the list.
Piccaso and Braque’s cubism paintings and De Kooning’s Woman
need to compare and contrast the style of the works in very specific analysis.
You are to compare the formal structures of each painting ? focus on composition, on use of color, on application of paint, and the overall size of the work ? in order to discuss how these works articulate the experience of viewing. Do not forget what we?ve discussed in class ? if you add up the various properties of the work, you will find that they work in conjunction so as to position the viewer in a very specific way with respect to the content of the work. You will also remember that the positioning of the viewer in many ways IS the content of the work.
