This paper stems from viewing two pieces of art: Arthur G. Dove's "Gale" and Marsden Hartley's "Landscape, Vence" and then presents them in a comparison/contrast. Points of discussion include colors used, emotions expressed, style of painting, etc.

From the Paper:

"Dove painted Gale in 1932, during a period of art known as the Expressionist period. Expressionism describes a style of art that enfolds its viewers and causes them to feel as though they are a part of the painting instead of an uninvolved onlooker. As Dove's painting demonstrates, all senses are utilized when viewing an Expressionist painting. The purpose of the Expressionist artist is not so much to paint a realistic portrait, but one that is representative of all senses experienced in the scene depicted."
