  3. The Feldman Method:There are many philosophies on how to analyze and interpreting Art. Fortunately, Edmund Feldman created a simple 4 step structure of the criticism of art consisting of description, analysis, interpretation and judgment. • Description - • What is the Artist’s name? Title of the work? Date of the work? Medium or materials used? What do you see in the picture? • What kind of subject matter is in the picture? Portrait or Landscape? • Analysis - • What is in the foreground, mid-ground, and background? What colors and shapes are used and how have they been arranged? Are there any leading lines, patterns, and if so, where is your eye lead, Is there any use of contrast? if so where. Is there a sense of space or perspective. Are there any special techniques employed by the artist? • Interpretation – • What story do you think is being told? • Judgment – • What do you like or dislike? How successful do you think the artist was?
