  • Art Criticism
  • The 4 Stages of Art Criticism (Feldman Method) Description: What is the subject matter? Analysis: How do the elements work? Interpretation: What is the content? Judgment: How successful is the artist?
  • Description
    • Technical Qualities
      • materials used (wood, metal, etc.)?
      • 2-Dimensional or 3-Dimensional?
    • Recognizable Subject Matter
      • describe the various recognizable
      • objects in the work
    • Non-Representational Art
      • list the things that are used to create
      • this image:
        • line, color, shape, etc.
  • Analysis
    • break down the formal elements
      • size, shape, color, texture, space
      • this can help to figure out the content of the work
  • Size
    • biggest object more important
    • observe the size relationships to give you a sense of perspective
  • Shape
    • Geometric shape
      • implies order
      • formality
    • Organic shape
      • non-geometric
      • implies natural, flowing
  • Color
    • color can affect the mood of artwork
      • bright can imply happy
      • muted/monochromatic can imply somber
  • Texture
    • tactile/real
    • visual/illusionary
  • Space shallow flat deep
  • Interpretation
    • meaning beyond subject matter
  • Judgment
    • is it about formal elements only?
    • is it meant to evoke emotion?
    • is it meant to deliver a message?
