Below was a painting name “Thusnelda at the Triumphal Entry of Germanicus into Rome” by Karl Theodor Von Piloty. The reason why I chose this paint because it gives me a strong feel on the use of value structures and tonal organization. From this painting, I can tell the main figure that artist want us to focus on was the women in the center with a kid.  This painting has a lot of people but I didn’t feel the composition was busy at all because the different value Karl use.  Karl makes the most important figure white and the rest dark. He also uses gray value to make the background not stand out too much but you will also pay attention to it.
