Ryan Fessler ART 120 11/10/2010 Methodology Paper #3 The painting that I chose to evaluate comes from the Flint Institute of Arts, but does the artist is unknown. The title of the painting is “St. George and the Dragon.” It was created with egg tempura on panel during the 15 th century at the Italian Byzantine School. This work of art can be described from two different methodological vantage points: iconography and formalism. Iconography is artwork that has to do with written text that underlies the image. Symbolic meaning is the most important aspect when looking at artwork from the iconographic methodology. Formalism is the artistic activity which is on end unto itself. The elements and principles of design are the only significant points in this type of methodology. Elements of design include line, shape, color, form, value, and texture (Getlein, 133). Principles of design include harmony, variety, balance, proportion, economy, rhythm and repetition, and unity. “St. George and the Dragon”
