Diversity Through Different Time Periods(Project 5/Field Trip 6 Reaction)

I chose this theme because it shows the different types of art from various artists during the time periods.For each artist, they illustrate their ideas and thoughts about art through their works. For example, the painting, " Corridor in the Asylum" by Vincent Van Gogh depicts the asylum Van Gogh stayed at for twelve month. This painting shows what he saw in his mind, while he was in there for treatment. Another painting is "Mirror" by Stanley William Hayter which shows the face of a woman in a fan, while her body is an instrument or an object. In my opinion, this represents how society objectifies women as tools, instead of actual human beings.The last painting i liked was "Circus Slideshow by George Seurat. This painting illustrates popular entertainment by showing a circus as a slideshow to promote people to buy tickets.This painting gives a fun, pleasant feeling because it shows people having fun and enjoying the company of the people around them. Based on this, all these paintings depict the different ideas and thoughts from each artist throughout the different time periods.
