The purpose of this film is to help my students improve the way in which they write image analyses. This analysis was not meant to be complete. There are many comments that could have been made that have been left out in order to make the video short and concise but still get certain points across. The assessment matrix featured in the second half of the video is my own based upon the criteria in the Swedish curriculum for the subject art.

The Painting featured is Les Parapluies by Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted in 1883 and the image was taken from Wikipedia Commons.
