  • 3. Represented Artists: • William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) • Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924) • Jean-Baptiste Greuze(1725-1805)
  • 4. Represented Artist: William-Adolphe Bouguereau was born on November 30, 1825 in La Rochelle, France. He was a French academic painter and traditionalist.” In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. During his life he enjoyed major popularity in France and the United States. He received numerous official honors, for example, as the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avantgarde.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William-Adolphe_Bouguereau http://www.bouguereau.org/biography.html William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905)
  • 5. William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) Berceau, c.1875 oil on canvas Courtesy of a Texas Collection Describe the subject matter. What is it all about? The painting demonstrates the female figure with lavish life style . This also illustrates the fact that during that period , In the nineteenth century, “art was as mark of status, both decorative and there to make a very definite point, and it carried over into how this class lived and raised their children: The arts were ornamental subjects in the education of young ladies and gentlemen.” Describe the elements of the work ? His painting of skin, hands, and feet is very realistic and detailed. We can see the detailed skin of kid and his hair, which is the illustration of his style and his concentration on details. http://www.rehs.com/daniel_ridgway_knight_1880s_and_1890s.html
  • 6. William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) Berceau, c.1875 oil on canvas Courtesy of a Texas Collection Describe the subject matter. What is it all about? In this painting the female figure is at the center of the art work and her proportion seems bigger than the landscape. Like most of his art works, this painting has the classical approach to composition, form, and subject matter. Describe the elements of the work ? The color and texture of painting is very rich and provides a great contrast, so the visual focus is more on her. Also, it is very interesting that she looks at viewer and connects.
  • 7. Interpretation of William-Adolphe Bouguereau Art works Describe how the work/event makes you think or feel: • Describe the expressive qualities you find in the work. What expressive language would you use to describe the qualities (i.e., tragic, ugly, funny)? Peaceful Beautiful Colorful Realistic • Does the work remind you of other things you have experienced (i.e., analogy or metaphor)? I believe these painting of William-Adolphe Bouguereau are not completely original since he was influenced and inspired by Raphael. • How does the work relate to other ideas or events in the world and/or in your other studies? His concentration on the human’s body reminds me of the early PreRaphaelite era art works.
  • 8. Represented Artist: “Daniel Ridgway Knight's works represent so many aspects of Nineteenth Century painting, including history, genre, landscape, portrait, and floral themes. In each work, all that is aesthetic is recorded with fine detail and skill.” http://www.rehs.com/virtexdrk.htm Daniel Ridgway Knight Born on March 15,1839 in Pennsylvania
  • 9. Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924) A Moment of Rest in the Garden,n.d. oil on canvas Courtesy of a Texas Collection Describe the subject matter. What is it all about? The art work presents two female figures in bucolic landscape. This painting illustrates an artist’s style of painting, which is known for his depictions of serene. Describe the elements of the work ? In this painting it seems the artist wanted to freeze the moment of life and present the beauty of it which is also combined with hard work.
  • 10. Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924) Picking Flowers,n.d. oil on canvas Courtesy of a Texas Collection Describe the subject matter. What is it all about? The art work presents a female figure picking flowers. Even though the landscape in the background is very colorful , she stands out and the viewers eyes stars at her. It seems that she is ignorant of everything but the beauty of flowers. Describe the elements of the work ? The cooler and texture of painting represents romantic and beautiful scene. The figure doesn’t engage with the viewer and seems she is unaware of her surroundings. “Other important influences were Bastien-Lepage, with whom he is most often compared, and Jules Breton for his plein-air style.” http://www.rehs.com/Daniel_Ridgway_Knight_Bio.html
  • 11. Interpretation of Daniel Ridgway Knight Art works Describe how the work/event makes you think or feel: • Describe the expressive qualities you find in the work. What expressive language would you use to describe the qualities (i.e., tragic, ugly, funny)? Live/ joyful Beautiful / Dreamy landscape Colorful Realistic • Does the work remind you of other things you have experienced (i.e., analogy or metaphor)? These type of painting have been around for long time so we can say that they not completely original. • How does the work relate to other ideas or events in the world and/or in your other studies? His concentration on the nature provides realistic perspective of rural classes working environment, which is very tangible.
  • 12. Represented Artist: Jean-Baptiste Greuze born in 21 August 1725 Tournus, France and died on March 1805 (aged 79) in Louvre, France “His true style was paintings of humble and bourgeois life; he had a wonderful career of success and good fortune. For some years he was the most widely known and most celebrated painter in Europe. His art was hailed as the triumph of natural bourgeois virtue over the mythological and immoral painting of Boucher. His work was a pleasing return to reality and life as it is.” Jean-Baptiste Greuze(1725-1805) http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07029c.htm Self Portrait. Louvre
  • 13. Jean-Baptiste Greuze(1725-1805) Painting of a Young Woman, n.d. oil on canvas Courtesy of a Texas Collection Describe the subject matter. What is it all about? This painting presents the portrait of young and innocent appearance of girl. Also, the way that her emotion is depicted is interesting, it is not very and presents a mix feeling of sadness and peacefulness at the same time. Describe the elements of the work ? It seems that viewer can engage with the figure, her eyes stares almost patiently out toward the viewer. The color and texture of painting provides a clam and peaceful feeling. Also, the painting has a classical style with the attention to realistic detail.
  • 14. Interpretation of Jean-Baptiste Greuze Art work Describe how the work/event makes you think or feel: • Describe the expressive qualities you find in the work. What expressive language would you use to describe the qualities (i.e., tragic, ugly, funny)? Innocent Peaceful Realistic • Does the work remind you of other things you have experienced (i.e., analogy or metaphor)? The colors illustrate the period that Dutch influenced realism into French portraiture. • How does the work relate to other ideas or events in the world and/or in your other studies? It can be examined as a study of sociology, because historically having a portrait paintings were primarily memorialized the rich people.
  • 15. Judgment or Evaluation Present your opinion of the event/work’s success or failure: • What qualities of the work make you feel it is a success or failure? Museum exhibits inspire interest in an area of study, time period, and ect. but unfortunately in this museum I couldn’t find variety of art works for my project. However, the art works that was provided are from the well-known artists which I admire their works. • Compare it with similar works that you think are good or bad. I believe they have been the best artist during their time, based on their accomplishments. • What criteria can you list to help others judge this works? in order to others judge these works, I would point out that the concepts of all the art works that was provided are almost the same. Also, their realistic style , form, position, and the way their emotions were depicted are approximately similar. • How original is the work? Why do you feel this work is original or not original? I don’t think the art works that I visited in this museum are original just in the fact that we can see this types of art works with other artists.
