neo classicism
Neo-Classicism
  • A rejection of the Rococo
  • “The ancients set the bar (Rome and Greece), and now we must try to surpass them.”
  • Based on:
    • Restraint of emotion
    • Simplicity (or clarity)
    • Following convention is more important than the desires of the individual artist
  • At first revolutionary, but eventually bogged down by overly rigid rules endorsed by the government and conservative society (later rebelled against by the Romantics)
the biggest names in neo classicism
The Biggest Namesin Neo-Classicism
  • Jacques Louis David (1748-1825)
  • Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)
1 david
1. David
  • From revolutionary to prisoner to Napolean’s portraitist to exile
  • Originally studied under Rococo master Boucher
  • Leader in the abandonment of Rococo
  • Universally acclaimed as a master
  • His work praised honesty, nobility, duty, self-sacrifice, etc.
  • Accurate drawing above all - appeals to emotion are purposefully subdued

Napolean in His Study - 1812

Napolean Crossing the St. Bernard - 1800

2 ingres
2. Ingres
  • David’s student
  • The leader of the academic opposition to Romanticism
  • Felt that a painting’s surface should be “as smooth as the skin of an onion.”
  • But would occasionally distort the form for expressive effect

Portrait of Madame Haussonville - 1845

ingres
Ingres
  • The last great practitioner of classic portraiture

Paganini - 1819

Louis Bertin - 1832

romanticism1
Romanticism
  • Rejection of the Rococo, but also a rejection of Neo-Classicism
    • The opposite of classicism
  • More like a frame of mind than a specific artistic style
  • Based on:
    • Emotion over reason
    • Emphasis on the individual
    • Sensation over intellect
    • Appreciation of freedom
    • Appreciation of NATURE and natural beauty
    • Appreciation of the weird, the Middle Ages, the exotic, even the occult
the big names in romanticism
The Big Names in Romanticism
  • Francisco Goya (1746-1828) - started it all
  • Theodore Gericault (1791-1824)
  • Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)
  • J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851)
