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 small mask is a wood sculpture with pigment and were created around the late 19th to early 20th century. The masks were painted depicting anything from animals to human caricatures. The mask is symmetrical, “one of a kind”, and had lustrous curving surface that suggested clean healthy skin. Most of the masks represent an individual idealized by the Baule standards of beauty; a broad forehead, long nose, pronounced eye sockets, introspective, and peace. The portrait mask not only indicated beauty, but also refinement and desire to please others.
Lopez went into a lot of detail with all of the thoughts he had, so it was easier to understand what he was talking about. Nature in his point of view seemed a little weird to me. Lopez stated that you needed an intimate relationship with nature; I don’t think that relationship is necessary. Yes I love nature and I have many great memories from it, but I don’t see it was an intimate type of love.
She’s even willing to do anything that happens to be in style, as evidenced by when she would pin an “orchid” on Mama in Mama’s fantasy. Even though Dee said to her that she thought orchids were tacky, she does it when it is trendy. However, Dee does not care about her family. She did not like her first house and was elated to watch it burn down (49). Also, she left for an education away from her family in Augusta (49).
The first being “Best part of the story, including ending”. In this short explanation she expresses how much she loves the way each chapter is connected to one another not just by the painting, but through a common theme and design or pattern, like the way Vreeland illustrates the appreciation of the artist's skill, identifying the people with the painting, and how they need beauty to enhance their lives. The second topic is “Best scene in story”. Deptula explains her favorite is “Morningshine” because she believes Vreeland did a very great job of communicating why the miniature of the young women meant so much to her. Finally, her last
Holden rarely wears the hat if there is a chance he’ll be around someone he knows. “That hat I bought had earlaps in it, and I put them on-- I didn't give a damn how I looked. Nobody was around anyway."(53) He doesn’t care how he looks because no one he knows is around that will judge him.
The painting of a goldfinch held high regard along with possessive feelings for Theo. The artwork itself was one of his mother’s favorites, similar to her two toned shoes black and white shoes J that she always wore. He had stood attentively as his mother explained the simplistic beauty of it: “This is the one I was talking about. Isn’t it amazing? This one little painting … that clear pure daylight, you can see where Vermeer got his quality of light from” (Tartt 26-27) After the explosion, Theo stumbles upon a dying man while trying to
After all, there was a whole romance in the movie that did not really appear in the book except for a brief mention of Winnie and Jessie getting married eventually. Ms. Babbitt’s writing has a flair for the descriptive unlike any I had seen before. It quickly became apparent why Tuck Everlasting has become such a popular piece of literature. John Steinbeck, while having a different style of description than that of Ms. Babbitt, is also very talented at painting a picture in “The Chrysanthemums.” A few of my favorite descriptions he wrote are as follows:
I have had many teachers throughout the years that have had a great impact on my attitude toward education. No instructor however has had such a huge impact in my life as Miss Mindy Sopher. I first saw her name as my academic advisor listed in My Pack Portal, or my online account at NC State. I had no idea what type of experience I would have with her. Last summer before my freshman year, I sent her an email introducing myself and she was quite impressed by my ambitions, especially becoming a “geographical engineer.”
These factors seemed to become transparent within the presence of Janie’s new pear tree, Joe (Jody) Starks, a being that produced “a feeling of sudden newness and change…” (pg. 49) The reality is however that change never comes on its own will, but rather it arrives with a cost, and to Janie that cost became her womanhood. The outcome of such was first seen on page 61, as the town chooses Jody as their mayor and call Janie for a speech, a request that never comes as Jody silences Janie’s voice, “Thank yuh fuh yo’ compliments, but mah wife don’t know nothin’ ‘about no speech-makin’.
The painting that really caught my eyes while waking through Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art at St. Gregory was Reading the Letter by a twentieth century artist named, Harry Roseland. During the twentieth century genre painting became a huge deal and artist starting showing more and more. This allowed the artist to tell a story Roseland was self- taught and really enjoyed depicting old and poor African Americans. The reason Roseland loved painting these Post Civil War African Americans was because it was a topic that was going unnoticed.
There were many excellent pieces of at the St. Louis Art Museum but the one that intrigued me the most was Gerrit Van Honthorst’s, Smiling Girl, a Courtesan holding an Obscene Image. I chose this piece to analyze because I thought it was comical and I was astounded. At a glance it appears as an ordinary painting of a young lady.
