Modernity in 19th Century Art: Manet, Monet, Bazille, and Caillebotte

- The Impressionist movement, while one of the more commonly known movements in art history, was also one of the most radical. As with anything new, there is a foreman, and Edouard Manet was this man. Not only did Manet’s paintings make him a crucial pioneer in the Impressionist’s revolt against the Academy’s standards of art, but what made him so radical was the way he painted and what he painted, along with others like Claude Monet, Frederic Bazille, and Gustave Caillebotte. Manet’s paintings exhibit something especially radical for the art of his time in the eyes of the academy and make them essential in leading up to the rebellion of the Impressionists; their modernity of self-consciousnes...   [tags: the impressinist movement]

Art versus Pornography

- Art versus Pornography       Her head rests on her left knee, with her hands clasped on her ankle.  Locks of hair are thrown about in an auburn blaze.  Her tight rosy lips are as red as her cheeks.  Her dark-blue eyes reveal a half-seductive, half-submissive look.  Her legs are in a subdued spread-eagle formation, leaving her crotch area quite visible.  Her white panties leave little to the imagination. The sexual overtones are more than just a coincidence.       Suspend your imagination for a minute and ask yourself if the description formed in your mind a work of art or, instead, a photograph of softcore pornography, found in such magazines as Hustler or Playboy?  Where this description...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Whiteness And The Imagery Of White By Richard Dyer

- ... These shades carry messages such as “everything has its darker side,” connoting darkness as bad, and are even portrayed as being desired by nonwhite people, as it represents innocence, purity, and untainted by malignant forces. Women in media are especially made to look extra white as this lightness is linked to ideas of good hygiene, perfection, and most of all as unattainable. This is because “ideally white is absence: to be really, absolutely white is to be nothing,” thus whites believe they are not racially slighted....   [tags: White people, Race, Racism, Black people]

Sculptures of unclothed women were usually of the Goddesses of love and sexuality, which justifies the nudity. The need to justify female nudity while male nudity was considered commonplace already reflects ideas about gender....   [tags: Gender, Gender role, Woman, Gender studies]
