Vigée-Le Brun was one of the few women who were able to attend the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in a time where the art of painting was dominated by men. Her painting speaks to me more since she demonstrated through this painting of her daughter Julie that women could paint portraits just as good or even better than the dominant male
Living up to this quote, Artemisia became one of the best painters in Italy during a time when women were not known or respected as painters. She took “control of her being” by not caring about what others thought and used her life experiences to make inspiring art and open doors for other women to become artists. She made it possible for women to be respected as painters and gave permission for women to be honored in the artworld. Artemisia was born in Italy and lived there from 1593 to her death in 1653. Artemisa grew up in a house of artists; her mother and father both loved to paint.
Jean- Leon Gerome was one of those artists, he was awarded many medals and was recognized for his unique paintings of young women. Gerome also tried to improve his skills by painting the Cockfight in 1846 its an academic exercise in which depicts a nude young man and a lightly draped girl with two fighting cocks. The background is the Bay of Naples. After he had admired his paintings, he soon sent the paintings to the Salon of 1847, in which he won another medal. This time, it was a third-class medal.
Just in creating two simple paintings of everyday youthful women, Vermeer manages to inspire artists to achieve natural beauty and effortlessness within their works as well. Vermeer isn't a genius because of his ability to survive throughout the centuries, he is a genius because his works have lasted this long and are still inspiring others to this day. Johannes Vermeer's works are classic and mesmerizing
Throughout history women have struggled to gain their rights. Ever since Adam and Eve, Eve was always the one making mistakes. American history regarding women is a shameful one, for women have been suppressed since the beginning. In the 1600s puritans traveled to america to gain freedom, but they suppressed their women as much as possible. Women were publicly hanged and accused of being witches in 1692, and this was seen as okay.
Like the farmer, he was only there to help create life and to receive the final product. Women sometimes endured double standards when they became mothers without their consent. A fragment of a lost tragedy sheds light on rape culture. “Tyro was abducted by Posiedon and became the mother of twin sons. Her father blamed her for her pregnancy, and her stepmother Sidero brutally mistreated her,” (Lefkowitz and Fant 18).
By virtue of the excellence of her work, the originality of her treatment of traditional subjects and the number of her paintings that have survived, Artemisia Gentileschi was the most important woman painter of Early Modern Europe. She was both, disdained and praised by contemporary critical opinion, recognized as having genius, but also seen as monstrous, for she was a woman exercising a creative talent thought to be exclusively male. She ‘’ has suffered a scholarly neglect that is almost unthinkable for an artist of her caliber’’ (Mary D. Garrard). Artemisia Gentileschi was born in Rome on July, 8th, 1593. as the eldest child of the Tuscan painter Orazio Gentileschi and Prudentia Monotone Gentileschi. Her mother died when she was twelve.
When Mayella said she was raped, everybody including the jury had sympathy for her. This also allows her power for she is a woman. In conclusion, Mayella Ewell is significantly powerful in “To Kill a Mockingbird”. In the first place Tom Robinson wasn’t going to win given that Mayella had an advantage in Race, Class, plus Gender. Although this may be true, Mayella was guilty.
PART 3Jan Van Eych is well known for his works during the renaissance movement. One ofthese arts is “Giovanni Arnolfini and His Wife”. This painting depicts a marriage in progressbetween Giovanni Arnolfini , an Italian Merchant, and a women. Although, there have beenrecent arguments that suggest the painting is actually portraying an engagement rather than anactual marriage. It contains a few eye catching features that backup this new disagreement.This paints little elements that are easy to miss at first glance.
His wilting body then turned into a beautiful flower that was named narcissus in honor of him (Alice Lowe). The myth of Nemesis and Narcissus was so popular in the time of the Greeks that it was copied by other cultures, who put their own twist on it. In the Roman version, the Nymph Echo is involved. The myth did not just impact storytellers, however, it also inspired many artists throughout Europe. In 1597, the myth inspired one Italian painter, Caravaggio, to paint a picture of a young man kneeling by the water, admiring himself.
In fact, it was later discovered that the statement was a fabrication, rather than data. Therefore, although the aberrational statement caused alarm and possibly fear, it was not reliable evidence as to the actual number of homeless people in America. However, this would deem conventional wisdom since it was an easy and impactful number expressed to alarm all Americans. Finally, women’s rights activists also use conventional wisdom to gain support. According to Freakonomics, “Women’s rights advocates, for instance, have hyped the incidence of sexual assault, claiming that one in three American women will in her lifetime be a victim of rape or attempted rape.” Freakonomics discloses that the figure is actually an estimated one in eight, but “advocates know that it would take a callous person to publicly dispute their claims.” In other words, the activists exploit people’s moral and social incentives to gain importance and attention while simultaneously eliminating opposition.
