1. A work that is disturbing.
This work seems slightly disturbing because it looks like some sort of medieval torture device. I think it is interesting, but I don't like it because it looks dangerous.
2. A work that makes no sense even with the description.
This piece of art seemed really cute to me, but it made no sense, especially with the description. The description described something about water painting being more beautiful than oil painting. I see a ship, but that's about it.
3. A work that shows repetition.
The shapes may not all be the same, but I see a pattern in some areas of the painting. The colors that are used also are used multiple times throughout the canvas.
4. A work that shows royalty.
I saw this work of art appreciated in a film about the Norton Simon Museum. I found the subject�s posture to radiate a sense of authority. The crown emphasizes Indra�s position as �the king of gods�.
5. A work that shows classicism.
This piece was an interesting work of art because it is the woman who is wearing luxurious garments and receiving gifts. She is not in the center of the picture, but she is the focus of the picture.
6. A work that shows mythology.
This work of art caught my interest as I looked through paintings that had to do with mythology. Up close, the painting is much more impressive. The brush strokes seem very cohesive while the figures themselves seem almost transparent.
7. A work that shows sadness but still is beautiful.
This work is sad because there is a figure in the background of the painting that looks like a geisha. The life of a geisha is usually unpleasant, so this picture makes me slightly sad.
8. A work that is sculpture.
I found the attention to detail on this structure to be very fascinating. The detail on the bottom of the sculpture draws my eyes more than the detail on the chests and faces. This is because the material draped around the Bacchante�s leg and the legs of the faun are rather complex parts of the piece.
9. A work that shows social injustice.
Jesus was a pretty nice guy who really did not deserve to be crucified (even if he did cause a little bit of ruckus). To Christians the death of Jesus was most definitely an injustice.
10. A work that is not European.
I find this artwork to be very adorable. Usually, I like pretty pieces of work that are idealistic, or are close to perfect. However this style jumps out at me because the cute figures are fun to look at.
11. A work that shows love.
This picture caught my eye because of the title, "Happy Lovers". I feel that the title fits the picture perfectly as the two subjects look very happy to be together.
12. A work that shows desire.
Venus is always the object of desire from what I have observed. The fact that Cupid is there, probably shooting anyone who comes nearby with a love arrow, makes the painting seem to portray the idea of enticing Venus-crazy men.
13. A nude and why do you think that artist made this, you need evidence.
The model does not strike me as a delicate person. The facial expression tells me that this woman is confident about herself. Her body language seems to tell me that she is very feminine and knows how to act delicate and dainty.
14. A work that shows struggle.
The animals, although they are dead, seem to look as if they are struggling to get away. This my not directly show a struggle, but to me, it shows the aftermath of a struggle.
15. A work that shows just how crazy the artist was
This painting seemed crazy to me because of the crooked mountains. The fact that a circle that reminds me of a full moon is somehow in front of the mountains and not in the sky strikes me as anfunny.
16. A work that shows how open minded you are.
Sure the artwork does not seem beautiful at first glance, or second glance for that matter. However the eyes seem to have this unexpected splendor compared to the rest of the body. The woman in the picture seems much more tolerable to look at when I look at her eyes.
