Starry Night, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island, Still Life with Basket of Apples - Impressionism is very pretty and complicated. It was from 1860 to 1910. Monet is the perfect Impressionist. Impressionism had its basic tenants. Their subject matter was the middle upper class, the city, and leisurely activities. They painted on en plein air which means they painted outdoors. They painted in snow, rain, storm, just in order to record directly the effects of light and atmosphere. They painted with strokes and touches of pure color by using a great deal of white and rarely black. They recorded the shifting play of light on the surface of objects and the effect light has on the eye without concern for the physicality of the object being painted....   [tags: post impressionism, painting analysis] 559 words

The Sunday Times reminds its readers that the clocks should have gone back overnight with a tiny cartoon in the top left hand corner.

The Search for Immortality in On the Beach at Night and Sunday Morning - The Search for Immortality in On the Beach at Night and Sunday Morning The search for immortality is not an uncommon one in literature. Many authors and poets find contentment within the ideals of faith and divinity; others, such as Whitman and Stevens, achieve satisfaction with the concept of the immortality of mortality. This understanding of the cycle of death and rebirth dominates both Walt Whitman's "On the Beach at Night" and Wallace Stevens' "Sunday Morning" and demonstrates the poets' philosophies of worldly immortality....   [tags: Papers] 698 words

Doubting Religion in Wallace Stevens' Sunday Morning - Doubting Religion in Wallace Stevens' Sunday Morning Voice is an integral part of Wallace Stevens' "Sunday Morning." The voice of the poem is not the woman's, but that of an outside narrator who seems to give words to the feelings that the woman experiences. The dramatic situation is created during the first stanza. The woman, still in her peignoir, is taking "late coffee and oranges in a sunny chair" on a bright Sunday morning instead of attending church. The quiet of the scene is evident, and the "holy hush" provides the woman with the perfect environment for introspection....   [tags: Poem Poetic Essays] 902 words

Art Analysis of The Luncheon of the Boating Party vs A Sunday on La Grande Janette -      The Luncheon of the Boating Party by Pierre-Auguste Renoir is a piece full of rich colors that reflect both the time period and the artist’s impressionist style. This composition not only conveys a leisurely gathering of people, but also expresses the changing French social structure of the time due to the industrial revolution. To portray these themes Renoir uses, shape, space, color and texture. Shape is seen in the modeled figures and bottles, and space is created by overlapping of the bodies, but it does not give a realistic illusion of depth....   [tags: Pierre-Auguste Renoir Georges Seurat Art Painting] 878 words

Bloody Sunday as a Turning Point in the Romanov's Popularity with the Russian People - Bloody Sunday as a Turning Point in the Romanov's Popularity with the Russian People Nicholas II was made the tsar of Russia in 1894 when his father (Alexander III) died. The Russian tsars had a strong tradition of autocracy and Alexander had followed this strongly. In part, this was due to his father, Nicholas's murder by a Russian political extremist group after he had started an "age of reform". This convinced Alexander to be more repressive than his father. Another reason for his views and opinions was his tutor Konstantin Pobedonostsev, who championed the phrase "orthodoxy, autocracy and nationality"....   [tags: Papers] 674 words

Historical Perspective - Historical Perspective Unfortunately, all most Americans know about the event known as Bloody Sunday, they learned from U2's smash hit, "Sunday Bloody Sunday." The source of this song's popularity stems from its ability to evoke widespread sympathy for Irish by painting an unforgettable picture of death and despair in the minds of each of its listeners. So what is unfortunate about this song being the primary source of historical knowledge concerning Bloody Sunday for most Americans. It is unfortunate not because of its lack of information or authenticity, but because of its lack of historical perspective....   [tags: Bloody Sunday History Essays]

Bloody Sundays Lead to Bloody Years - Since the beginning of time, there have been incidences where people or countries have been owned or dictated by another country or group of people. At times this governing by different countries can lead to times of peace and an opportunity for both sides to benefit. But sadly, more often than not, this exchange of power is not done in an agreeable manner; but rather in a way that includes a malicious and most often unnecessary show of might. This show of strength is usually done with the help of the military under false or misguided judgment generally based on greed, the need for control, and religion....   [tags: European History ]

Poetry Analysis: "Those Winter Sundays" - In Robert Hayden’s “Those Winter Sundays”, the readers follow the narrator’s seemingly dark memory of his father: who worked, sacrificed, and endured many pains for his family, and mainly, his son (the narrator). As one reads, they come to see that this father is gratefully unappreciated. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the father is violent and abusive and the main contributing factor for why the narrator has come to fear him. As the narrator begins to end his reflection, he comes to a revelation and understanding of his father and seems to come to terms with the role he played in this father and son relationship....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]
