Rubens has a divine talent of forcing the viewer to question what sins are hiding within the painting. In The Fall of Phaeton, Rubens reveals the turmoil produced by one individual 's mistake, and again in The Judgment of Paris he depicts just how dangerous an individual may be. Through visual analysis I believe Rubens’ strives to illustrate turmoil in his work as well as expose the downfalls within humankind. In The Judgment of Paris, we find three nude women dazzled by what lies in the hands of a masculine gentleman. Tangled within the nude women we find two angel babies; one looking at the object in the gentleman 's hand as though he is un-amused, the other angel wrapped around the leg of the woman placed in the middle.
The rage and jealousy in Othello's heart lead him down the path of destruction. He cannot see through this veil of darkness Iago has placed before him, and starts to believe that women are actually just as deceptive as the other men had thought. In Shakespeare's plays, he often writes about tragedy, and political unrest. During this time period women had little capability, and they were often seen as barely human. Emilia, in the play Othello, is a wonderful example of how women were seen as deceptive.
Kilbourne later explains “In the Diet Coke ad, for instance, the women are physically separated from the shirtless man. He is the one in control. His body is powerful, not passive” (Kilbourne 467). “When society has turned a woman into an object therein lies the justification of abusing her” (Kilbourne 466). For a woman to be a blank canvas, this implies that any and all are free to determine who they want her to be, she can be treasured in one moment and in the next become trash.
In document D it also shows a paragraph written by a historian in the 19th century. In this paragraph, he says that “people became intoxicated… by the terrible success of their imposture (acting), and were swept along …”(Charles Upham). This meant that people saw how they were lying or acting about people being witches and people seemed to believe them so they wanted to keep doing it, even though it affects them it was a life or death situation and people took it as a
In 1731 Hogarth created the first of his modern moral works: A Harlot’s Progress. This follows the story of a young country girl, turned into a prostitute. It is a discriminating portrayal of the fatal nature of human vanity and blindness, however innocuous, in the face of ruthless economic and sexual forces. These paintings also show how climbing up the class system at a rapid pace will destroy human beings, and everyone surrounding them. Another famous painting which put William Hogarth on everyone radar was A Rake’s Progress.
Haywood incorporates this idea of making the heroine disguise herself as a prostitute to ensure that she is able to experience the control high classed women of the eighteenth century have always been deprived of. She is ridiculing society and its limitations of women in higher
The 1808 painting The Valpincon Bather by Ingres, is said to be “controversial”(oil painting techniques). At first glance, one may only see the back of a nude woman. If one looked closer there is a lot of different types of elements of composition. From the curtains, to the tassels it all plays a role. In the painting there is a great detail that is shown.
The bending woman in the middle distance show as the apex of the classical triangle of which the three foreground figures serve as the base and sides. The Salon was shocked with the content that the nude lady was comfortable sitting with two fully clothed
Beauty is tormenting, it is a poison that runs extensively than just physical discomfort , it corrupts the mind, the heart, and the soul. Not everything that is appealing to the eye is good. Currently, the women of this time are judged so much about their appearance, but people do not realize what women have to do to meet other people’s standards. The women of the Elizabethan era were only considered prettier if they had the whitest skin and the reddest cheeks. Not only did the women do this, but also the men.
In the final painting just appear five naked woman, two of them are looking to the “viewer”, other two, on the sides, are opening a curtain. And the other one is sitting and turned to us. Before she there is a still life, probably a tribute to Cézzane (2). In the picture do not appear these masculine figures, found that Picasso created an effect where the spectator instead of contemplating a room with harlots, now he/she is seen by the female
