The above painting, The Monalisa is the most popular painting worldwide. It is a halflength portrait painting by Leonardo da Vinci an Italian Renaissance artist in 1503. It is an oil on
poplar panel painting showing Leonardo’s wife Lisa Gherardini. It is a realism style painting and
has a value of $820 million as of 2018.
I chose this painting because of its realism style. Leonardo uses realism to make Lisa
appear real in the painting. He uses perspective to resonate an illusion of depth and space, setting
the color composition and lighting to make Monalisa appear real. In my opinion, Monalisa’s
gaze makes her appear real and gives her strong depiction to the Virgin Mary. There is no
stylization or abstracted elements in the painting. The painting consists of a series of
brushstrokes of many colors to make one central solid color. In the painting, one notices

Leonardo didn’t use outlines but rather used soft blending to create that real look. The hills and
green vegetation are evidence of the use of an aerial perspective to create an imaginary
background. Leonardo places a horizontal line at per with Monalisa’s eye to link the figure to the
landscape background. The non-discernable shapes of the hills in the background show that an
oil-based paint was used. The green-yellow black and orange color contributes to the central
style of realism by giving the painting life. The colors also express the beauty of the Monalisa.
The pale yellow color of her skin and her posture make her expression indecipherable. On seeing
the picture, the first trait of Leonardo that comes to mind is that he loved enough to paint his
wife. The painting shows the beauty of women and the landscape of the 1500s.

This painting is titled Starry Night and it was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889. The
medium used in painting this piece is oil on canvas. It was painted in impressionism style to give
the impression of the village of Saint Remy.

I chose this particular painting because it has different ideas, techniques, and styling in it.
For example, the moon is stylized even if records state that it was a waning gibbous. In the
painting, the moon and the sun are painted as swirling bodies in the sky. I also chose this
painting after hearing the story of its creation. Vincent painted it from the view of his house
through metal bar windows. If that isn’t determination and passion I don’t know what is. In my
opinion, the painter succeeded in using abstractions in his work. The lack of distinct shapes apart
from the houses shows Vincent used oil-based paints in his work. The swirling sun and moon are
also evidence of oil-based paints. He uses smudges to create the sun, the moon, and other stars.
The overlapping blue, yellow and white paints create the impression of Saint Remy just before
sunrise. The white paint around the sun moon and stars symbolize the light that they emit
spreading in all directions. The houses, hills, and trees give you a picture of the hilly landscape
of the hilly Saint-Remy province. The painting also shows Venus (the morning star) making its
descent in the sky. The painting shows the beauty of Dutch nature and once you see if you are
inclined to pay Saint-Remy a visit to see it up close.
