Can some one help me with this art question. Not sure what exactly it is asking for.
1) Look at Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez and describe the formal qualities of this work in terms of its organizing space. Do the formal qualities working together create a particular effect? If so, what is it and how is this accomplished?
2) Look at Nighthawks by Edward Hopper
and describe the formal qualities of this work in terms of its color and light. Do the formal qualities working together create a particular effect? If so, what is it and how is this accomplished?
