When learning about the U.S. -Mexico borderlands with regards to female painters, one cannot forget to include Frida Kahlo. Kahlo gained lots of popularity for her art work in the 1930’s and 1940’s. She painted lots of self portraits and displayed her life experiences through her art. Many people have argued that she made a huge impact to modern art and that her artwork will remain a true inspiration for many new artists. Her creativity and fame has set an example of how a Mexican woman can succeed in a country that has done so much to keep Mexican women in the bottom tier.
The most influential event in Frida’s life was the bus accident. The bus accident became an essential outlet for her emotionally and spiritually, so she uses her emotions to display on the canvas. Also, the importance of Frida Kahlo was her clothing and eyebrow trademark. Her eyebrow trademark and her clothing brought her out as beautiful woman, including her painting. Diego encouraged Frida to symbolize her eyebrows as a trademark in her painting.
Enough about me, I know you’ve created some monumental sculptures such as The Thinker (1902) and The Kiss (1882–1889); but tonight I would like to review one a particular sculpture that captivated my attention, the Young Mother in the Grotto (1885); presently on display in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I selected this precise sculpture due to the personification of maternal love and protection sculpted by
UXT Task 2 Austin Olooaringo (ID# 000556089) Western Governors University Work: Alexandros of Antioch, Venus de Milo, c. 130−100 BC Period: classical Period A1. Initial Thoughts My initial thought was the display of feminine beauty and grace as seen from an artist perspective dating back in time. The goddess Aphrodite is a sculptural elegance that has continued to fascinate the art world and remains relevant from the time of its discovery on the island of Melos around 1820. Her posture and demeanor reflect confidence of her personality and womanhood. A2.
With the help of artist Georgia O’ Keeffe, who Kusama had started friendship with while still in Japan, she was able to secure exhibitions and also some sales, leading to interest in her work right from the start. Also, there was a fascination with the foreign artist herself, and she struck up a deep relationship with her fellow artist Donald Judd and the middle-aged assemblage artist Joseph Cornell who was also infatuated with Kusama, often writing her love letters and sketching her in the nude. Because of her anxiety and fear of sex, both relationships, while very close, were strictly platonic. Kusama and Cornell developed such a close bond (allegedly, he shared her sexual aversion and hated sex) that when he died in 1972, she began creating collages to honor his work and cope with his
To get started, the azaleas in the novel represent Maudie Atkinson because of her loving, strong minded, and compassionate character. Azaleas stand out because they are able to grow even in harsh and unbearable conditions. They still turn out to be in a perfect beautiful condition, unlike many flowers who need a good environment to grow. Maudie is a perfect representation of an azalea because she lives in the prejudiced, judgmental town but she still stands out when compared to other individuals in Maycomb because of her loving and compassionate character. For instance, the day after the trial, Jem and Scout are provided with Miss Maudie’s famous cake, “There was a big cake and two little ones on Miss Maudie’s kitchen table.
She taught two of the most famous Confucian scholars to have lived, and she invented the famous style of commentary where original characters are written within larger columns and those of commentators within smaller ones. Most importantly for this paper, she was a moralist; an exemplar well-known for her writings on femininity. She advocated for the education of women, and was the first person in human history to be known for doing so. In such she can be considered a sort of proto-feminist. Her advocacy for female education has two sides to it: the fact that if followed, it would prove a tangible positive impact on countless lives, but that it is also proposed and framed within the same oppressive patriarchy that fails to allow any reasonable deviance from its gender roles, much less a consideration of the value of those roles.
The charging bull sculpture, sculpted by Arturo Di Modica, on Wall street is a very well-known piece. Earlier this year there was another sculpture placed in front of the charging bull called, "Fearless Girl", sculpted by Kristen Visbal.

Some believe that the fearless girl sculpture needs to be taken down because it takes away from the meaning behind the original sculpture. Others believe that the fearless girl sculpture should be kept because it sends a good message out there for women.
