The Lighted Candle Magdalen with the Smoking Flame created by a Frenchman named Georges De LA Tour whose painting brought upon my attention Is a painting consisting with the images of a woman turning away from the sight of the observer and do not incorporate much activity or light But it does consist of interesting composition of light darkness and motive When just getting a glimpse of the painting the only attention that is drawn is the light of the candle and only a partial of the womans face is lighted The lighted area seems to captures the womens Magdalen thoughtful world as she sits and stares off into the dim wall By the light of a single candle the womans flesh seems almost translucent As the dim wall transforms into the dark so does the rest of the surroundings of the painting The dark area of the painting seems to have much more detail and a tale about the women The darkened areas consist of a stack of books a table chair and the women holding the skull on her lap Her clothing seems to be very revealing as well as comfortable All of these distinct parts seem to have a different reflective quality from the lighted candle With such great detail in it and little activity going on it seems like if the canvas was not produced till after the Renaissance Era The date of the painting was provided but with just observing it it was something different from the world of the Renaissance It does carry the classical body of the human as well as the naturalism of movement The way her heavy clothing smooth flesh and hair make it natural Not only is naturalism taking place but there is a sense of proportion and balance with the items on the table and setting With these characteristics it goes beyond the common brightness of art into a more morbid pondering
