Question: Write an essay on Art Paintings? Answer: I have selected some very special paintings for the company and would like you to review them from my eyes. Three of them are from the Impressionist period which was a revolution in itself painted by oil on canvas and covering some of the main themes. Roses This is one of the most attractive and positive vibrational painting by Vincent Van Gogh called Roses 1890 in which most beautiful form of still life is portrayed. It is painting having a flower vase with white, and pink flowers in it and a lush green background. As far as its relation with the office is concerned, it can be placed near the garden wall present inside the office campus. It is exuberant and vibrant in terms of glory out of full blooming fresh roses. These flowers are significant of the birth and renewal. This can relate to the fresh flora and fauna of the garden. It will also signify freshness, renewal, positive energy, nature enlightens, zeal and exuberance. The historic significance relates with the Impressionist period of paintings depicting real life and a bend towards nature (Hayashi, 1998). It is healthy for the corporate environment to infuse the employees with positive and natural energy to do work on new projects. It will fill up the campus with life. The paintings green color is a symbol of fresh green spring time and the diagonal strokes further beautifies the painting. Allee of Chestnut Trees Another painting of Impressionist era can be Allee of Chestnut Tress painted by Alfred Sisley as an outcome of tranquility. The painting consists of a curved platform surrounded by a series of chestnut trees with blue sky and green grass flowing with the rhythm of the air. The painting depicts tempering of the bright sunlight by dappled shade of the tress. The artistic combination of colors have put much more life into the painting. This painting is relevant for the office to blend the internal monotonous and boring environment of the corporate culture with the freshness, newness and brightness of the outside world which abounds in bounties of natural and scenic beauty. It is a curved pathway significant of curves and challenges in the corporate life yet the trees stand still and undeterred to protect the land from the bright sunlight with the help of their shade. Leaders tend to manage and control their group and protect them from any potential challenge and hence it relates with the corporate culture. It shows a pleasant weather, crisp and pale blue sky and the green grass bending in the wind. It gives a sense of joy and sheer pleasure inside the office routine. It can be placed in the staircase complying with the line of stairs. Ice Floes Another relevant painting for the discussion room or meeting room of top management is Ice Floes by Claude Monet. This painting is hard to describe but beautiful to view as it blends a single color into different shades. It is about melting ice floes over frozen ice sheets. The painting capture effects of nature and showcases the problem of frozen river which slowly melts down. The beauty of the picture lies in different shades of white color being portrayed beautifully. The significance of the painting is to show the winter time clad in the lap of white snow. The painting can be placed inside the discussion room of experts for a strategic purpose to make them remind of the challenges and the ways to overcome them effectively. It is a mark that every problem has a solution and one can come up on to the solution with effective and innovative techniques. The simplicity of the painting makes it best matched with the seriousness and discipline of the discussion room. Post Impressionistic painting refers to independent artistic styles for incorporating emotions rather than optical impressions. Coconut sculpted in a face The picture selected can be in the form of the either a sculpture or a painting. The painting is named as coconut sculpted into a face made by Paul Gauguin and falling under the post Impressionistic domain of paintings. It is a brown colored painting having carvings into it. Basically it is a coconut into which a face is crafted in and the eyes protrude from the coconut giving it a lively form (Campbell, 2001).. This should be used as a sculpture to be put on the side table in the main waiting hall near the reception. It can add to the beauty of the place with a decent brown color and innovative concept. It can be placed in yet another wooden tray to add material to it. The significance of this coconut sculpted face can be a hard shell protected the employees of the company and adding to the beauty of the place. It is also personification of employees having a determined approach. Princeteau in his studio Another post Impressionistic painting selected for the company is Princeteau in his studio by Henri de Toulouse Lautrec. In this painting there is a man painting on the canvas showcasing abstract art in his room. It has vivid colors and a scripture of horse as his old work (Chauvet, 1996). It can be kept in the recreational room of the company campus in which it can placed on the front wall in entrance. The significance of this painting is that people can have freedom to pursue their personal interest and carry forward their hobbies on their personal terms. Every person has an opportunity to pursue any hobby irrespective of the position of the employee in the company. Sculpture of Ms. Schuffenecker Lastly we can select another sculpture of Ms. Schuffenecker by Paul Gauguin having a face of a woman sculpted in stone. It is beautifully sculpted in stone with high quality. It can be placed in the office cabinet of a woman who is in a top management position. It will signify the scenario of women empowerment. This sculpture of woman would infuse elements of courage and inspiration in women. References: 1. Haneishi, H., Hasegawa, T., Hosoi, A., Yokoyama, Y., Tsumura, N., Miyake, Y. (2000).
