Art Appreciation

Museum Paper In the process of researching and comparing different works of art I chose to go to both Gilcrease and Philbrook museums. I believe the buildings and the surroundings of the buildings have a lot to do with how successful the museum is. Both museums have an elaborate entrance way which would lead the visitor to believe that once inside the same grandeur will continue. Upon entering Philbrook the awe from the exterior continued throughout the museum; on the other hand Gilcrease was rather disappointing to the viewer, especially after the beautiful entrance way. To me it looked as if most of their time has been spent on the exterior. Gilcrease as a whole was an enormous let down; from the pieces of art to the way the pieces were light. The lighting gave Gilcrease a cold and crypt like feeling which made me rush through the museum. If there were any pieces of art with bright coloring or great detail the atmosphere was sure to kill it. Somehow in this gloomy environment I found six pieces of art that I enjoyed. The first piece of art that really caught my eye was El Galope which was painted in 1943 by Jose Chavez Morado. This oil painting has a tremendous amount of motion from the horses running to the direction t Continue...

With out looking at the title that is exactly what I thought of the painting. Both sides have beautiful colors except the bad sides colors are just a little darker than the good side. On the other hand the bad side as well has a head like figure which is outlined by a strand of Christmas lights, but the only thing that makes this side look evil is the way the lights look like they are choking all life out of the invisible head. To make the flowers jump out even more Fechin applied the bright colors on top of the dull colors to make the flowers the main attention. This color selection left you with a peaceful feeling. The good side you can almost see that it has been chosen because the set of clothes have a blurred out area above the collar that looks like a head. As a whole this painting had a lot of action in it for being such a small painting. The only colors in this painting are hues of black and white. The second work of art I will discuss will be an oil on canvas by Nicolai Fechin titled Still Life With Calla Lilies. It looks like she is ready for take off and once she lifts off she is never coming back. The colors the artist chose were shades of pinks, purples, and greens. Even the colors of this painting give a since of anger. It was placed in a room full of paintings of the Native American culture; it looked as if it was the only place left in the museum that this painting could fit. The motion in this picture leads the eye to the mother buffalo protecting her calf. The third piece of art that caught me eye is oil on canvas painted by Oscar Edmund Berninghaus titled Winter Night Taos.
