Then, be sure to look up the terms “tenebrism” and “chiaroscuro”. Look for these techniques in this painting.

Item #3

René Magritte, “Personal Values,”

Rene Magritte, a man from Belgian, is a modern painter. This is considered Surrealism.  You will be looking for the Elements of art and other design elements in this painting. Is there anything that is different from normal in this painting? ( Also, it’s good to know in this painting, we see Magritte’s bar of soap, his wine glass, a match for his pipe, his comb and his shaving brush. We also see a bed, a wardrobe cabinet and other furniture.)

Remember look for how these ideas are shown in this painting –

Elements of Art – line, shape, light, space, mass, volume, texture, color

Design Elements – balance, contrast, rhythm, pattern, movement, emphasis

For the Magritte, don’t forget to look at 1-point perspective. ( Know the vanishing point, the horizon line and the vanishing lines.)
