(Answered) HUMN303N Week 2 Discussion: Critic of the Arts


HUMN303N Introduction to Humanities

Initial Post Instructions
Select a work of art from any of the chapters in our textbook, and write a response that analyzes the art through the lens of a descriptive critic, an interpretive critic, and an evaluative critic. What different things would these critics have to say? Use the following guidelines:

  • Descriptive Critic: Address at least 3 different elements of art and/or principles of design.
  • Interpretive Critic: This will require research so that you can understand the subject, meaning, and intent of the work.
  • Evaluative Critic: Use the standards of perfection, insight, and inexhaustibility (as described in the text).


The painting I chose from out textbook is Flaming June. The three elements/principles of art I would use to describe this painting are texture, space, and color. In this painting, implied texture is used in the dress because although we can’t actually feel the dress, we know how the bottom of the dress would feel. According to Chamberlain College of Nursing (2020), “Implied or visual texture that the artist is trying to convey, such as silk or fur that a figure is wearing, the coarse bark on a tree, or the glass-like calm of a lake” (p. 1). …..please click the icon below to purchase full answer at $5
