Art analysis | English Literature | Louisiana Tech University
Art and literature often weave into each other, influencing one another, and both can be used as a means to teach us about humanity. This is especially true of the surrealist movement, where art and literature are bound together. Great works of art have inspired great works of literature, great works of literature have inspired art, and together they have simultaneously represented similar movements, like surrealism. Unnerving, illogical scenes can be found in both the art and the literature of this time, and both allowed the unconscious to express itself.
Step 1: Spend time with your chosen piece(s). Take down some notes: potential interpretations, specific details, images and what they possibly symbolize, etc.
Step 2: Analyze the painting(s). In your analysis you should note key elements of surrealism and details from Carrington’s life and from her literature. Explain how the piece(s) of art is bound to the artist and her work.
