3 Analytical and Expressive Lines Analytical and Expressive Lines The first of the two paintings that I chose because of what I believe to be its analytical lines and the second of the two paintings I chose because of what I believe to be its expressive lines. The paintings also “spoke” to me, they grabbed my attention. Analytical lines seem to be vertical, horizontal, rational, and organized in ways that make one think strong. In this painting The Old Guitarist, the old man is concentrating on his music. If I understand right, this came about the time of Picasso’s blue period. The man does seem somewhat sad but also strong at the same time.

Unformatted text preview: In the Midsummer Eve, the lines seem to be curvy as in the curve of the girl’s legs and the spiral of fairies she is talking with. The painting is like a fairytale, somewhat dreamy and a comfortable place to be in like a wish. 5 Analytical and Expressive Lines Fig. # 2 Edward Robert Hughes c. 1908 Midsummer Eve Oil on canvas Yes, I do agree that the analytical lines take on the masculine aspects of being strong, organized, and sometimes logical (some men). The expressive lines (curvy, loose, and free flowing) tend to take on the emotional aspects, as some women can be emotional. References Hughes, E. R. Midsummer Eve. (1903).

    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.
