Finish Swan Lake

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 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 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

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 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 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)
