Style of Representation

This piece of art was done in an era that was characterized by diminishing pharaonic
authority. Hence, it is a reflection of Egypt’s changing political and social affairs during that
period. All the decorative elements of the painting mark the events of the late 18th dynasty in Egypt
(Laboury & Connor, 2017). For instance, the king on the painting has the mark of earrings, a
common thing that started to emerge towards the end of the 18th dynasty.
Also, in the painting is the blue khepresh crown that the king is wearing alongside two
ribbons falling on his neck and a protective cobra that adorns the khepresh crown. Ideally, the
painter used mainly the red, yellow-ocher ink, as well as black highlights on the limestone to bring

events that were present during its creation (Kang & Pashler, 2012). Although the surface of
limestone is considerably rough, this was the smoothest surface during the period of the painting.
The roughness of the painting surface did not deter the painter from obtaining an excellent
drawing on such a surface. Also, the painting of the king on the limestone resulted from the close
relationship between artists of the time and the royal dynasty (Laboury & Connor, 2017). At the
same time, they were employed to paint the tombs of the royalties which explains the choice of
the personality that is in this painting.

Style of Representation
Raphael’s style in the above painting and all his other works is the still-life style. He was
the first American to venture into using the style in his drawings making him become one of the
four greatest painters of the 19th century in America. This style, as is evident in the painting of a
basket full of peaches provides a new way in which people can view the things they consider
normal around them.
