Woman stand strong IV.psd
One of the most striking aspects of this beautiful oil painting is the use of bold accent colors which help to bring to life the wonderful pastoral scenes of summertime. The background and the sky background are both rich with colors that really make the painting come to life, and add the perfect touch of whimsy to what is otherwise a very somber and serious piece of art. A closer examination of the woman standing in the clouds, shows a kind of longing for youth. This makes it seem like the painting might be an ode to the lost innocence of youth, or at least a depiction of the innocence which seems to be lost forever due to the modern technological advancements of our time.
The Woman Who Stands in the Clouds is a fantastic example of art in the Pre-Raphaelites style. As well as being a fantastic example of art in the Pre-Raphaelite style, it also presents another parallel with other artists from the time period. For example, in the artwork of Georges Braque, there are perfectly aligned, concentric circles in his work which correlate to the art style of the Pre-Raphaelites. Also, in comparison to some of the other artists of the Pre-Raphaelite period, Jan Keteleer seems to have a much more restrained and flowing style in his paintings, which also correlates with the Pre-Raphaelite style.
