Historically, these people in power and held such status were expected to be presented in certain ways. They weren’t allowed to look “comfortable” or “normal.” As Givhan stated her thinking, “Dressing appropriately is a somewhat selfless act” (Para 8) she was trying to give the reader the feeling that the Roberts family were going against this stereotype and needed to be judged for it. To tag along, she illustrates an analogy about the family’s attire, “His wife and children stood before the cameras, groomed and glossy in pastel hues - like a trio of Easter eggs, a handful of Jelly Bellies, three little Necco wafers.” (Para 2)
The figurative artist I chose to research is John Singer Sargent. He is an American artist with an impressionistic style who utilized unique compositions that captured the emotions and personalities of his sitters. Sargent was born in Florence, Italy in 1856 and was encouraged to pursue an interest in drawing and painting by his mother, who was an artist herself. He trained in Paris under the artist Carolus Duran, who taught him not to rely on drawing the composition before painting, but rather to start the straight away. As he Began his training at École des Beaux-Arts school, he gained the attention of many artists, and since then he created a significant impact in the world of art.
Hello Cimberleigh, Thank you for sharing your post! I appreciated reading your hypotheses about what you saw in the paintings. It was interesting to review other responses and see how different people view and draw various conclusions from the same images. For example, in the first image you saw isolation whereas I saw someone being methodical, not necessarily thinking about anything in particular, but contemplating. From my perspective, the person may have been thinking about positive and negative things, but without additional information I didn’t feel comfortable drawing conclusions.
Their language sometimes reflected their feelings about dating, marriage and drinking habits. “I have to see a man about a dog” at this period of time meant going to buy whiskey; and a “handcuff” was considered an engagement or wedding ring (2). When parents heard their daughter talking in this new slang language they created, they did not understand what their daughters were saying, it drove them crazy. To the older women, these girls were destroying everything they had worked
Every piece of literature can be compared to others to determine which is better. But what if the two pieces being compared are the same story? Anton Chekhov, in the late 1800s, wrote the short story “The Lady with the Pet Dog” about a man who views women as an “inferior race” and constantly cheats on his wife until he finds a young lady he truly falls in love with. Joyce Carol Oates’ story, written almost 100 years later, also named “The Lady with the Pet Dog” is about a woman who cheats on her husband with a lover she truly falls in love with. Even with these two stories being very similar as much as having the same title, one can be determined as the better piece.
The short story “The lady with the Pet Dog” by Anton Chekhov and “The lady with the Pet Dog” by Joyce Carol Oates are written very differently, but in distinct ways. In “The lady with the Pet Dog” wrote by Anton Chekhov is a better read than “The lady with a Pet Dog” by Joyce Carol Oates. It lets us readers stay on track and have a better understanding. It does not jump back and forth. Both “the lady with the Pet Dog” by Anton Chekhov and Joyce Carol Oates can be compared and contrast in different ways.
Henry Lawson – Essay Henry Lawson, commonly known for his eminent stories, ‘The Drovers wife’ and ‘The Loaded dog’, which he reflects on personal experience to depict a bush lifestyle that is rapidly abandoned in the harsh nature of making a living in the Australian bush, and the stoicism of the Australian spirit. ‘The Drovers wife’ outlines the absence of action that considered life in the outback in the isolated parts, distant from the urban settlements of Australia, exemplified with repetition in “Bush all round—bush with no horizon” and the distance of their house far from the city conveyed through “nineteen miles to… civilization”. The second story ‘The Loaded dog’ is also set in the rural landscape in the outback of Australia, which is
The brilliant hues of greens, purples, reds, and yellows that are strategically brushstroke on the piece give of a sense of impressionism. The characteristics of this piece capture the modern them of leisure activity. Caillebotte’s young cousin Zoe and brother Martial are depicted in this piece through the two characters. Both characters are dressed relaxed and have middle to upper class attire. The painting contains element of modern style through the scenery and garden.
My piece that I chose to stare at for 20 minutes was Gino Severini’s Armored Train in Action. I chose this piece to spend my time at, particularly because of the way the composition is set up so that the train looks like it’s coming right at you, and the way that the artist uses not only tone, but his brush strokes also to create depth in the painting. Severini paints very colorfully and uses lighting and shadow, and if you look closer depending how the thing he is drawing or painting bends or folds, he will keep his brush strokes in that direction to show the bend not only with color but with the strokes in the paint themselves. George Seurat’s brush strokes come a lot to mind when i see them, but more in an organized fashion. Gino Severini was born April 7th, 1883 in Cortona Italy.
Born in 1984, the contemporary Japanese artist Keigo Nakamura, utilises classical brushstrokes in a contemporary style to present new possibilities of painting. The miniature size and scale of the works implies the how small human beings are in the universe with the exquisite brushworks, this refreshing outlook is constant in his works that remains after long periods of observation and research. Awareness of the Self Upon first inspection, Keigo Nakamura’s works seem to be cute, after close examination, the surface appears to be introverted, however, under the façade of solitude, there is unexpected depth and optimistic brightness. The calm stuffed cat or bear, looking at the candlelight, as if thinking, leading the viewers into the picture to reason the subject’s self awareness, in fact, the artist has cleverly used the setting in the paintings to created a projection of the mind to the audience, giving the depicted subjects life and abundant sentiments.
Comparison The poem “The Flea” written by John Donne and the poem “To His Coy Mistress” written by Andrew Marvell, are both poems written during the Renaissance. These poems revolve around the idea of the speaker taking away a certain woman’s virginity. Both poems approach convincing these women in the same way, but it’s Marvell that writes a more persuasive one. This was accomplished by using metaphors and meter.
' 'work of art which did not begin In emotion is not art’’(Paul Cezanne).Every one of this world has been created uniquely. This is similar to the artist of the 19th century including Paul Cezanne(1839-1906) and Pierre Auguste Renoir(1842-1919).Both are from French. In addition Paul, Cezanne was a shy, rude and angry man. His new ideas and intense style of painting changed the history of art so, he is known as the father of modern art (Zurarakhinsky 2018)On the other hand, Pierre Auguste Renoir had a pleasant personality and he painted many paintings demonstrating joyful scenario(www.biography.com 2016).In spite of rheumatoid arthritis, he devoted himself in painting till the end of life(www.biography.com 2016)though they had committed their whole life to painting, their art movements,subject matter of painting and influences has seemed totally opposite to each other but still, both loved to paint portraits and nude women. One obvious difference is work movements.
The painting “Self-Portrait with Her Daughter, Julie” by Élisabeth Vigée Lebrun shows the artist’s daughter as an extension of herself not only meant to exalt her love for her child but also to show herself in a flattering light as the devoted and beautiful mother. “Self Portrait
The portrait represents the beauty of the time period. It holds simplistic colors with detailed shading. The artwork is very intriguing to me. I love the detail in the background, there are tiny brushstrokes that makes up the mountains and sky. Also, I find the shading of the mouth and eyes very interesting.
