Feldman’s Method of Art Criticism

A way of looking at art.


Vocabulary

Vocabulary:

  • Art Criticism: An organized approach to studying a work of art. It has four steps: describe, analyze, interpret and judge.


The 4 steps

The 4 Steps:

1. Describe: What do you see in the work of art?

This can include the literal objects, like people, places and things. It can also include the elements of art, like lines, shapes, colors, textures, values, forms and space.


What things do you see what elements of art do you see in your notes name three things

Describe this Painting:

What things do you see? What Elements of Art do you see?In your notes, name three things.

The Banjo Lesson, Henry Tanner, 1893, American.


The 4 steps1

The 4 Steps:

2. Analyze: How are the Elements of Art organized? In other words, which Principles of Design are being applied in the work of art?

The 4 Steps:

3. Interpret: What is the artist trying to say? This can include either the:

- Story – a narrative the picture is telling.

  • Mood - a feeling the artwork is showing.

  • Meaning - a message the work of art is telling.

    ….or it can be all three!

The 4 Steps:

2. Judge: Is the work of art successful?

A work of art can be successful or unsuccessful technically and conceptually.

Technically successful means the artist used the Elements and Principles well, and used their materials well.

Conceptually successful means the artist had good ideas and communicated them well to the viewer.
