I need help with a Art & Design question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Examine this painting “Promissory Note” by contemporary painter, Deborah Zlotsky. She has been linked in style to the Dutch Baroque painter, Rembrandt as well as to the Italian Baroque painter, Caravaggio. Explain the connection. Use good description to support your assertions. You must use chiaroscuro and trompe l’oeil in your discussion. The bluish paper in the hand on the right hand side is litmus paper and the rabbit is being sacrificed for a pregnancy test. Zlotsky, during her Dutch phase of painting (she now paints large abstractions) lifted ideas from earlier painters that she loved and went as far as appropriating (copying) parts of paintings. But I am asking you to look specifically at the stylistic issues that show influences from the artists, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. I also want you to include Rembrandt’s Slaughtered Oxin your discussion of the idea of sacrifice and the ideas of symbolic still-life from the American 19th century painter Charles Bird King. When examining the hands, please study the hands in Caravaggio’s Supper at Emmaus. So you are really discussing style and symbolism in your essay. Do not forget to use the vocabulary, define it, and apply it to description of the painting.
