Potd9 Impressionism3

  1. 1. PoTD #8 <ul><li>Impressionism #3 </li></ul><ul><li>Aka: Some of the Other Ones </li></ul>
  2. 2. Degas <ul><li>Degas was included in all but one of the Impressionist exhibitions, but fervently denied being and impressionist. More than half of his paintings were of dancers. He actually mocked the impressionists for painting outdoors, since he was trained in the tradition of classical painters and his aspirations were to be a historical painter. Also, he hated Jews. </li></ul><ul><li>Standing Nude </li></ul><ul><li>Pencil on Paper (1860) </li></ul>
  3. 3. I didn’t want Mary Cassatt to be the first gal in this series of works, so here...as an aside...lllllladies and gentlemen! In the tradition of Caravaggio himself...Judiiiiiiiith beheading Holofernies! ‘ Holofernes ( Hebrew , הולופרנס ) was an Assyrian [1] invading general of Nebuchadnezzar , who appears in the deuterocanonical Book of Judith . It was said that the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar dispatched Holofernes to take vengeance on the nations of the west that had withheld their assistance to his reign. The general laid siege to Bethulia , commonly believed to be Meselieh, and the city almost surrendered. It was saved by Judith, a beautiful Hebrew widow who entered Holofernes's camp and seduced him. Judith then beheaded Holofernes while he was drunk. She returned to Bethulia with the disembodied head, and the Hebrews defeated the enemy. This can be interpreted as a honey trap . “ -From Wikipedia‘ <ul><li>Artemisia Gentileschi </li></ul><ul><li>Judith Beheading Holofernes </li></ul><ul><li>c. 1612-1613 </li></ul><ul><li>Oil on canvas. </li></ul><ul><li>1.59m by 1.26m </li></ul><ul><li>Museo di Capolodimonte, Naples. </li></ul>
  4. 4. It’s a Girl Thing- Cassat <ul><li>Mary Cassatt is the first American featured in the PoTD series! Unfortunately, she wasn’t very exciting. She was trained at PAFA (Pennsylvania Acadamy of Fine Arts—Cherry and Broad Street, Philly) and had the family bling to travel. Eventually she moved to Paris and met up w/ Degas and Manet. She then made a bunch of paintings of Moms with their daughters. Quaint. I’ve always found these paintings to be alienating and a bit sugary. I’m pretty sure she had a much different childhood then Artemisia Gentileschi. </li></ul><ul><li>Mary Cassatt </li></ul><ul><li>The Bath 1891-1892 </li></ul><ul><li>39.5x26in </li></ul><ul><li>Art Institute of Chicago </li></ul>
  5. 5. Cezanne <ul><li>In Drawing 101 you learn to make your drawings based on shapes such as cylinders, spheres cones and cubes. Cezanne invented this and became the bridge between impressionism and what is to become Cubism. </li></ul><ul><li>May I repeat what I told you here: treat nature by means of the cylinder, the sphere, the cone, everything brought into proper perspective so that each side of an object or a plane is directed towards a central point. Lines parallel to the horizon give breadth... lines perpendicular to this horizon give depth. But nature for us men is more depth than surface, whence the need to introduce into our light vibrations, represented by the reds and yellows, a sufficient amount of blueness to give the feel of air.&quot; Paul Cézanne to Emile Bernard, 15 April 1904 </li></ul>House and Farm at Jas de Bouffan Oil on Canvas (1889-90) (23.75x29) Still Life with Apples and Oranges , ( 1895-1900) Etude: Paysage a Auvers (Study: Landscape at Auvers) c. 1873 Oil on canvas, (18 1/4 x 21 3/4&quot;); Philadelphia Museum of Art
