Romanticism cont… Liberty Leading the People, Eugene Delecroix, 1830
Pair Task - 10 minutes Now that you have seen a variety of art pieces that capitalize on cultural and historical imagination, answer the following question: How is Romantic or Neoclassical Art reflective of the different political movement of France, Great Britain, and/or Russia? Develop a thesis and three specific bullet points of supporting evidence to share with the class.
Realism (1830-1900) Bonjour Monsieur Courbet, Gustave Courbet, 1854
Impressionism (1870-1900) Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh, 1889
Impressionism cont… Woman with a Parasol, Madame Monet in a Japanese Costume Both: Calude Monet 1875
Final Task Like Romanticism and Neoclassicism, Impressionism and Realism are reflections of a Modern European shift of culture. What does Realism and Impressionism suggest about the changing focus of European culture in the later half of the 19th century? What do you think is responsible for this shift?
