The Pulpit No v Oil on Canvas Art Critique


1. William Hartnett’s A Smoke Backstage on page 9, fig. 1.9.

2. Use the help sheet and example critique below to write your critiques.

Be sure to use the terms for your Analysis:

Formal elements: line, shape, form, value, texture, space, color.

Principles of art: balance, emphasis, harmony, variety, gradation, movement, rhythm, proportion, space.

Craftsmanship refers to the medium (materials) and techniques that the artist used.

  • The questions to address under Historical Precedence are: Does this piece recall a previous work (from any artist or time period)? Does it reflect or reject a traditional treatment of the subject? Does it contain elements typical of a previous artistic period/style?

And finally, give your Interpretation of the work: What does this work mean to the intended audience? For whom was this work made? Why was this work made? What is the artist trying to communicate? What signs/symbols does the artist employ to communicate this message? What feelings or emotions does this work elicit? How is this achieved?
