Pull out the your worksheets from Friday…



  • 1. The dancers are dancing “en pointe.” In your opinion, does it make the dancers appear weightless? How so?



  • 2. Knowing the story, does this ballet portray Act IV? How do you see the story happening? Give at least 3 examples.



  • 3. Describe the various costumes you see (girls, Prince Seigfried, Von Rothbart.) How do they help tell the story?



  • 4. Did you enjoy what you saw? Would you buy tickets to Swan Lake? Why or why not?

    • This one I won’t make you share – but answer HONESTLY on your paper.

    • Turn these papers into the box for credit. I will pass them back in a few days and they will go back into your binder.

Romantic art

Romantic Art


Romantic painting

Romantic Painting

  • Romantic style had an emotional appeal (similar to music, opera, and ballet)

  • Romantic compositions moved toward fragmentation of images

    • With the intention of dramatizing, personalizing, and escaping into imagination

  • Painting strove to get away from formal content and move towards the expressive

Romantic painting characteristics

Romantic Painting - Characteristics

  • Characteristics of Romantic Painting:

    • Fragmented – usually by lines (most often diagonals)

    • Clear obvious brushstrokes (texture)

    • Strong contrast

    • Very expressive to the point that detail sometimes suffer for emotion

    • Often involves a sense of “doom”

Romantic painting1

Romantic Painting

  • We’ll look at the work of several artists to demonstrate the emotional themes and individuality

  • You will NOT need to name these paintings on the quiz or test

    • You will want to remember these names…

    • And (remember you WILL have music recognition)

Francisco de goya

Francisco de Goya

  • 1746-1828

  • Spanish

  • Used his paintings to attack the abuses perpetrated by governments, both the Spanish and the French

  • His highly imaginative and often nightmarish works capture the emotional character of humanity and nature

The third of may goya

The Third of May - Goya

  • Tells a true story

  • On May 3rd, the citizens of Madrid rebelled against the invading army of Napoleon

  • People were arbitrarily arrested and executed by the masses

The third of may goya1

The Third of May - Goya

What/who is the focal point?

The third of may goya2

The Third of May - Goya

  • It is impossible to escape the focal point of the story – the man in white about to die

  • His strong value contrasts force the eye back to the victim

  • The lantern behind the soldiers keeps the work in balance

The third of may goya3

The Third of May - Goya

  • Goya leads us beyond the death of individuals here

  • The figures are not naturalistically depicted people

  • Instead, Goya makes a powerful social and emotional statement

The third of may goya4

The Third of May - Goya

  • The soldiers’ faces are hidden and their rigid, repeated forms create a frightening line of suffering

  • The murky quality of the background strengthens the value contrasts and charges the emotional drama

The third of may goya5

The Third of May - Goya

  • Color areas have hard edges

  • A stark line of light running from the oversized lantern to the lower border separates the executioners and victims

The third of may goya6

The Third of May - Goya

What Romantic characteristics are seen?

J m w turner

J.M.W. Turner

  • 1775-1851

  • English

  • Indulged in a subjectivity even beyond that of his Romantic contemporaries

    • His work foreshadows the dissolving image of 20th century painting

  • “airy visions with tinted steam”

The slave ship turner

The Slave Ship - Turner

The slave ship turner1

The Slave Ship - Turner

  • Visualizes a passage in James Thomson’s poem “The Seasons” which describes how sharks follow a slave ship in a storm “lured by the scent of steaming crowds of rank disease and death.”

The slave ship turner2

The Slave Ship - Turner

  • Elements of Romantic Painting:

    • Fragmented by disjointed diagonals

    • The brushstrokes are energetic and spontaneous

    • The sea and sky appear transparent

    • Expression dominates form and content – a sense of doom prevails

Eugene delacroix

Eugene Delacroix

  • 1798-1863

  • Employed color, light, and shade to capture the climactic moments of high emotion

The 28 th of july liberty leading the people delacroix

The 28th of July: Liberty Leading the People - Delacroix

  • Shows the allegorical figure of Liberty bearing the tricolor flag of France and leading the charge of a freedom loving people

The 28 th of july liberty leading the people delacroix1

The 28th of July: Liberty Leading the People - Delacroix

Which characteristics of Romantic art are evident here?

The 28 th of july liberty leading the people delacroix2

The 28th of July: Liberty Leading the People - Delacroix

  • Lights and darks provide strong and dramatic contrasts

  • The red, white, and blue, used around the work unify the scene

Jean baptiste camille corot

Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

  • 1796-1875

  • “Romantic naturalism”

  • First to execute finished paintings outdoors rather than in a studio

  • He wanted to create the full luminosity of nature and to capture the natural effect of visual perception

    • Visual perception: how the eye focuses on detail and how peripheral vision works

Volterra corot

Volterra - Corot

How is there visual perception?

Volterra corot1

Volterra - Corot

  • Strives to achieve a true-to-life visual effect by reducing the graphic clarity of all details except those of the central objects (which are presented very clearly)

    • Just as our eyes perceive clearly only those objects on which we are focused

Romantic vs

Romantic vs...


    • Chiaroscuro is DIFFERENT from Fragmentation

      • Chairoscuro is a strip of bright light (high values)

      • Fragmentation is having one side of the painting high in contrast from the other


    • Both Romantic and Classical aren’t overly detailed

    • Classical is POSITIVE (Utopia – graceful)

    • Romantic is NEGATIVE (harsh – doom)
