Write a 350- to 700-word summary of the following topics:

  • View Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night on p. 65 and Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing No. 681 on p. 68 in Ch. 4 of A World of Art and describe both paintings in terms of their lines. What does each artist’s use of line communicate about the artist’s personality and view of the world?
  • View Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez on p. 163 in Ch. 8 of A World of Art and describe the formal qualities of this work in terms of its organizing space. Do the formal qualities working together create a particular effect? If so, what is it and how is this accomplished? You might find it helpful to also watch the Closer Look discussion of this painting on the MyArtsLab website under Ch. 8.
  • View Nighthawks by Edward Hopper on p. 524 in Ch. 21 of A World of Art and describe the formal qualities of this work in terms of its color and light. Do the formal qualities working together create a particular effect? If so, what is it and how is this accomplished?
