Art Museum Visit
Art is an activity in which a person can express his or her ideas or emotions. Many artists have done greats sculptures, paintings, and other types of art. Each one of them expresses an idea or feeling on each piece of art that they make. In my opinion I believe every piece of art is beautiful no matter how it looks like, and what really matters is what it is trying to show to the world.
I choose the painting named “Jefa” (Patronessas), made by Xul Solar, which was an Argentinian artist who lived the most part of his life in Europe, this painting was made in 1923. This painting attracted my attention because I saw a cat on the middle of it. I also liked it because it was made by a

    As an art student, I find the art that we learn about in class very interesting because it is art that I would never be interested in, but yet after learning the details I enjoy them. Although I don’t mind learning art through power points, I find physically looking at art more enjoyable. Getting the whole experience of physical artwork is a more exciting way to learn and catches my interest more, which is why I was so excited to visit a new museum and look at some art. For this assignment I decided to go to the LACMA museum. I have been to many museums before, but I have not visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art yet so I was very excited. I find a lot of art very fascinating, but I am more interested in the more contemporary and modern arts. I am a design major so I was drawn to the sculptural art pieces that were displayed outside the building. One piece in particular that I found very beautiful and fascinating was an outside display entitled “Urban Light”.…

    “Painting isn’t an aesthetic operation; it’s a form of magic designed as a mediator between this strange, hostile world and us, a way of seizing the power by giving form to our terrors as well as our desires” this quote by Pablo Picasso allows the audience to delve deeper into his emotions and what has finally persuaded Picasso to enter the art world. Art reflects the social values of a particular time and place; this can be seen throughout many of Picasso’s artworks throughout time, and how he and his techniques have changed over the period of his career.…

    The first painting that caught my eye was the First Theme by Burgoyne Diller. For some reason the colors of Blue, yellow, and white on black background caught my eye. I thought it was very different and unique to start off with a large square in the middle and then a long yellow rectangle and a blue long rectangle on a black background. It looked so fascinating to me. Just the idea and the colors that were used made the painting seem very different than the other ones around it and the fact the artist used these three colors together made it stand out more. This made me think a lot about the way it was structured. I absolutely loved it, and it reminded me a lot of Picasso’s art work as well. Looking at that painting made me feel the different moods of the color as well, white was more like happiness. Yellow and blue next to each other felt like two different moods as well. It was just something else.…
