Part A-Museum of Art, Date Visited: 9/27/2017 Piece 1-Screenprint in acrylic on canvas First Impression: The piece seems weird, it is clearly a picture of a woman, but seems disfigured. The picture reminds me of puzzles I did when I was younger. Sometimes I would put the pieces in the wrong places. This piece appears to be made cloth puzzle pieces. My initial impression is negative; the abnormality of the picture is too much for me. Museum Card: Woman in a Flowered Hat 1968 Screenprint in acrylic on canvas Richard Pettibone Extended Viewing: The extended viewing and thinking did not change my perspective on the piece. The piece is still too different for my tastes. As I was thinking about the piece I did notice that it not only has two left half faces, but also only has hair on the left side of the head. I also noticed that the title of the picture focuses the viewer on a hat, but in this picture most of the hat is not visible. I also noticed that the woman is sitting in a chair. The left side of her shirt is much darker than the right, and both sides have different patterns. Elements of Art: The most prominent elements of art in this picture are line, and shape. This picture has very few straight lines. This gives the picture a unnatural feel. The lines are very thick, similar to that of a stained glass window. The thick lines help create a vivid contrast between the positive space and the negative space. It is interesting that most of the lines are going every which direction. Most of the lines are not really vertical or horizontal. But there is one spot with not only a vertical line, but also a horizontal line. The lines cross at almost exactly ninety degree angle. This creates an almost three-D aspect to the picture; the woman is in a chair with a glass roof surrounding her.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
