Select one artwork from Chapter 21, The Modern World, that interests you. In 300

Select one artwork from Chapter 21, The Modern World, that interests you. In 300 to 400 words, write a brief description and analysis explaining how the artist used the visual elements and principles of design create a composition that holds your attention. Do not discuss the “story†of the artwork, i.e., the subject matter, theme, or backstory. Focus on the formal elements only. Please include an image of the artwork, image citation, and an identification of the artwork including art, title, date, and medium.
Before writing your analysis, take a few moments to quietly view your chosen artwork. Notice your sensory responses to it.
Then, ask yourself the questions in this viewing exercise to better observe how the elements of art and principles of design are used:
What catches your eye first in the artwork? Name the visual elements involved.
How are your eyes are pulled throughout the composition?
Is there a discernable pattern of movement within the composition itself? How is it implied? Is it dramatic or relatively static?
Which visual elements and principles of design are involved in your responses to the questions above?
