    Critical Analysis: Northern Summer Window The piece that I chose is Northern Summer Window, the piece is oil paint on canvas, 24 5/16 in. x 20 1/4 in. and was finished in 1936. Marsden Hartley was in American artist - born in 1877 and died in 1943 at the age of 66. Northern Summer Window is a gorgeous piece – the use of pinks, blues and reds.

While this piece is simply wonderful, the use of artistic relations in the piece really bring it together. Starting with the line work for the painting is elegant – with the use of, from what I can see, thin and curved lines. They’re very flowing, soft and continuous – they all flow in together and make the piece seem soft, comforting, and homey. However, from what I can see – there are mainly straight lines on the bottom side on shapes, for example the clouds, the piece in the window, and there is also the lines on the bottom side of the leaves. While looking at the straight lines, there are also lines in the books and the vase. All the lines make the shapes look stable, yet the looseness of the curtains flow and give the piece a sense of balance. The piece is illustrated during the day – it’s clear; bright and all the items in the piece are illuminated, the two books, flowers in a vase along with the…

    I have places inside me where there are works of art: internal abysms that feel full, physical, like forces that fuse past and present. In the early 2000s, I spent four straight days in the Prado; all of it's still within me like some huge, Proustian madeleine. Almost every Bosch, Cézanne, Matisse, Alice Neel, Bill Traylor, Martín Ramírez, and Marsden Hartley that I've ever seen can flash like lightning at will. I spent a day enraptured by Matthias Grünewald's Isenheim Altarpiece in Colmar. (I…

    seems to tell us that the savagery of the wild is to be feared and conquered to build a fresh better life. Looking deeper left at the bare front of the canvas, there exists a broken and disfigured tree, this might signify how unpredictable the wilderness can be and how much damage it can cause to those who are not careful enough. Next migrate the eyes to the right side to detect the light, a few houses in the distance, and the clouds purely white. The white in the clouds may signify how…

    reader gain a pretty clear picture in their head. He does this in other poems like “The Red Wheelbarrow” or “Queen-Ann’s Lace” add colorful description to his short, expressive poems that dwell on imagism. The Brueghel series takes a very important art historical source as its subject. Williams explicates the paintings, like any art historian would, except he enjambs all of the lines to make them more abstract and to invert the reader’s expectations. That is the simple answer for how he…
