THE LADIES’ TOWER AT THE ALHAMBRA In this painting I found it interesting, how scale is depicted. The children on the bottom of the painting are depicted to be small, compare to the tall trees and the buildings. The focal point on this painting that caught my interest was the children on the bottom of the painting. Implied mass is also visible in the depiction of the big buildings on the painting.

THE MEDICI GARDENS IN ROMEThis painting is a good example ofimbalance.

WHY I SELECTED THESE PIECES OF ART WORK I selected these pieces of art work based on the theme of landscape. I was able to see on these paintings and sculpture trees, rivers, mountains, the sky and different times of the day, with the light of the sun. I found it interesting, how artists can make their art work beautiful with some type of depiction of nature, when nature is already a natural art itself. My exhibition “The Collection of Landscape Art” will be arranged in the following order: the painting, “Mancorbo Canal In Picos De Europa” will be hanged on the wall to the lower left side corner near the entrance. Next to that, the painting, “Landscape with the Embarkment of Saint Paula Romana in Ostia” will be hanged on the same wall. On the right side wall, the sculpture, “ Allegory of Francesco I of Medici” will be hanged. On the back wall the painting, “The Ladies’ Tower at the Alhambra” will be hanged up and the painting, “The Medici Gardens in Rome” will be hanged on the same wall but to the closer to the left corner. On the following slide you will be able to view the setting of the gallery.
