By adding subtler, yet vivid hues of blue and red to her daughter’s portrait, she was able to bring out her daughter’s youth and vibrancy. The flowing white dress Julie wore illustrates a classical antiquity and reflects a prevailing fashion at the time. Her paintings capture an essence of time where Aristocrats lived in grandeur and the bourgeois lived in a modest way, which all changed after the French revolution. I feel that is it important to remember the way the French use to live by and understand why it was significant to have a change in the way people lived. 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.
I believe art is a way to express a feeling, or an inclination and to create an alternate perspective of the world. Beauty alone is not art, but art can be made of about, for magnificent things. This painting fits under art and beauty because I believe this portrait is very detailed it shows her beauty through art. I compare this portrait to “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci because, they are both portraits of women who were considered to be beautiful and role models for young girls back in their times. Mona Lisa painting have more vibrant details.
Berth Morisot was a French paintmaker and painter, who was associated with impressionism. Born into a family of a government official who was supportive of the arts she was able to openly practice her passion to paint. Through her painting The Basket Chair, she demonstrates her remarkable style of rough to light brush strokes that create a sense of realism in this piece. She was one of the few female painters of her time. The subject matter of her piece is not as interesting as that of Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, due to the gender inequality and male superiorism.
The Virgin and Child coloring is mostly pale skin tone, with royal blues symbolizing royalty and, white symbolizing purity. The lining in the skin makes the painting look more realistic and the lighting brings out the dimensions very well. The lining is overlapping which shows the movement in the painting. The triangle shape begins at the top of Mary’s head and down the back of Jesus contacting to the bottom of her hands and coming around her shoulder. Spacing is very important
The use of the fresco technique when painting, usually produces a matte-like finish once it has dried, a trait that can be noted when analyzing Bondone’s painting, The Meeting of Joachim and Anna. On the other hand, Simone Martini’s painting, The Annunciation, shows the opposite finish of Bondone’s painting, because The Annunciation is considered to be very elegant, and includes a gold background, which enhances its brilliance. This is mainly because The Annunciation was painted in tempera and gold leaf on wooden panels, the opposite of a fresco painting. The use of tempera and gold leaf added immense sophistication and brilliance to Martini’s painting, something that Bondone’s painting was lacking. While Bondone’s painting has a matte finish which can be associated with the Florentine style of art, and Martini’s painting has more of an elegant finish,
In the comparison of “Turning Road, L’Estaque” by Andre Derain, 1906, oil on canvas, 51 x 76 ¾ inches, and “Venus” by Ernst Matthai, 1816-1820, marble, 63 ¾ x 25 3/16 x 21 ¼, I think that the difference between them is in their usage of color. The similarity between them is that they are both trying to tell a story. In the comparing and contrasting of the two artworks, the difference between them is in their usage of color that. The artist of “Turning Road, L’Estaque”, Andre Derain, use a wide variety of color that allow the piece to appear lively and peacefully with everyone in the artwork performing their daily assignment. Derain also use a lot of complementary color such blue and orange and red and green, and they are used to create depth and complexity within this piece.
William Ernest Reynolds-Stephens balances the painting with the positions of the people in the painting. The are all closely connected and that brings them all together cohesively. This painting shows asymmetrical balance achieved by the lack of symmetry but the entire image holds the same visual weight. For example, the cheetah skin at the bottom left of the image helps to even out the image. When I imagine the picture without the cheetah skin I can see how it would be a little less visually pleasing to look
"Sonnet in Primary Colors" by Rita Dove is composed around a work of art by Frida Kahlo. Dove portrays how she is tormented to look more wonderful than every one of the workers, and how Frida is grieving the demise of her loved ones. The poem is named "Sonnet in Primary Colors" even though black is not one of the primary colors. Maybe this is on the grounds that primary colors are expected to serve for the changing feeling. She is portrayed as having a black wing however later Dove composes, "wildflowers entwined the plaster corset"(Dove).
Adele is “the embodiment of every womanly grace and charm” who “idolizes their children, their husbands” (9). Together Edna and Madame Ratignolle discuss womanly duties of sewing and childbirth.

Madame Ratignolle conformist lifestyle motivates Edna to become her own person away from the Victorian feminine ideal.

Her ability to have the kindness and be that loving astonishes me. This is a reason that my mother should receive the Marvelous Mother award. My mom definitely has the characteristics to win the Marvelous Mother award. She is a very hard working individual and that is definitely a reason that she deserves this award. Like I said earlier, she is very supportive in the fields of dance and daily life.
