The first painting I chose was titled I know a maiden fair to see take care Charles Edward Perugini painted it This painting is oil on canvas This painting spoke to me It was painted in Italy in 1839-1918 The woman in this painting is leaning on what looks like a bed There are pillows around her and she is holding a fan She is wearing the clothes that look like they are from the time that this was painted In the painting the woman looks like she is wearing rouge on her lips and blush Her hair is crimped but pulled back The lighting is beautiful the woman is lit up and the background is darker This is dramatized by the fact that everything in the light is detailed and brightly colored In contrast everything in the dark is blurred and the lines are faded This painting spoke to me because of the beauty of the woman She is not the normal beautiful she is Overweight by todays standards but she is more beautiful than most models today Her smile was one of the things that caught my attention She kind of has a smile like the Mona Lisa its provocative and mysterious The second painting I chose that spoke to me aesthetically was called Portrait of a Woman as Judith Agostino Carracci in Italy in 1557-1602 painted it The painting is oil on canvas In the painting the woman is holding a sword and a severed head She looks wealthy she has pearled necklace and expensive looking earrings Her hair is pulled back and she looks very pale She has a slight smile on her face like she has just overcome something she has the look like she is drained but she is proud of what she has done The light is on her and the background is dark but detailed The lighting and background makes you feel like war is going on
