Monet expressed that he did not mention the subject because what he intended to represent is interaction between the subject and himself (as cited by Potter, 2002). An illustration of this group is Water Lilies, Evening Effect, which was painted in 1899. It is one of Monet’s set of artworks depicting water lilies at his water garden at Giverny. In Water Lilies, Evening Effect, he painted water lilies floating on the surface of the pond at night. The water lilies are luminous, while the water is nearly opaque.
The melting of Vetheuil, 1881 (Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum) is a good example of Monet's work from this period. In the mid-1880s Monet, considered the leader of the impressionist school, had achieved significant recognition and a good economic position. Despite the boldness of his colorful and extreme simplicity of his compositions, he was praised as a master of meticulous observation, an artist who sacrificed neither the true complexities of nature and intensity of their feelings. In 1890 he had the opportunity to acquire a property in the village of Giverny, near Paris, where he began to build a new garden (now open to the public) -a lily pond crossed by a Japanese bridge pendant with willows and clumps of bamboo -. In 1906 begins to paint the lily pond series that are exposed in the Orangerie in Paris in the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Modern Art.
Monet 's father wanted him to continue his family 's dry food business, but Monet only liked drawing. Eugène Boudin, a frequent artist on the Normandy beach, taught Monet some of the first drawing techniques in 1856. In 1861 to 1862, Monet served in the army of Algeria. Lecadre, a Monet 's aunt, agreed to help him out of the military if Monet followed the arts sciences at the university. Monet left the army to enter the university.
Two scholarly writers brilliantly conveyed nature in their own opinion, an essay written by John Miller called, ”The Calypso Borealis," and a poem by William Wordsworth called, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.” Both authors created work that acquires their idea of the beauty of nature while showing their compassion and love for nature. They each endured the essence in their own way. Each author also used their memory as descriptive imagery to creative share the scenery and amazement of their experience. Each individual has their own personal opinion about nature and how they decide to express their feelings can be diverse, and both authors, John Muir and William Wordsworth, expressed their compassion and love for nature in their own way. Once the piece of literature begins, the reader begins feeling captivated in the imagery that the author created to be envisioned.
The Classification of Emotions in Monet’s Paintings According to Claude Monet, a famous impressionist artist, “It 's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” (as cited by Kendall, 2004). As artwork is chiefly depicted in many different ways, such as in natural, spiritual, objective, or subjective description, Monet believes that a plein-air painting style can convey such profound feelings to audiences based on thorough observation and comprehension (Perry, 1927). Thus, there are four groups of emotion in Monet’s paintings, which are serenity, loneliness, confusion, and joy. The first group of emotion in Monet’s paintings is serenity.
On April 1851 Monet entered the Le Havre secondary school of the arts. Monet’s mentor, Eugène Boudin, taught him “en plein air” (outdoor) painting techniques. When Monet was 16 his mother died and he went to live with his childless, widowed aunt.
In the painting Helen of Troy, Evelyn de Morgan uses the immaculate beauty of Helen to show that people can easily be distracted by beauty. While in the poem the “Description of Helen.” Christopher Marlowe uses the same scene to show that people should not dwell or worship others only because of their beauty. In the poem “The Description of Helen” Christopher Marlowe uses vivid imagery
Tennyson’s attitude towards art is definitely underlined in his poems: the artist should be isolated from the temptations of society because the artist’s ability to produce is diminished. In “The Lotos Eaters” Odysseus’s men come to “land / In which it seemed always afternoon” (Lines 3-4) and “the mild-eyed melancholy Lotos-eaters” (Line 27) offer them a life of simplicity. Odysseus’s men choose to stay in the sensuous land of the Lotos, having “had enough of action”
Eliot intrigues his audience by constructing his poem in fragments, and bombards the content with images of decay and destruction ‘London Bridge is falling down falling down falling down’ . Through this intense technique, Eliot effectively forces us to experience the feeling of emptiness that he is attempting to portray. Pessimism is often used in Modernism poetry as a way for the poets to describe the despair that they experience in a society that is strongly progressing scientifically and technically. The fear of the unnatural, which is produced by technology and science, drove modernists to place extreme emphasis on conveying pessimism and an erosion of realism into their
Poetry before the time of Wood worth employed a lot of philosophical and intellectual engagements. (Stephen 70) The history of William Wordsworth has helped in understanding the poem by firstly knowing that his sister Dorothy was the silent listener mentioned at the end of the poem. It is also important in understanding how the poem was composed and the various situations showing communion with nature. His historical background also shows that he was a Romanticist and together with another composer it gave Wordsworth the ability to grow further in poetry.
