Monet - 535 words
The middle class family Claude Monet was born into was average in every way. The son that was born into that middle class family was not average, but will be remembered in the art world for many years. He drew cartoons for his family and friends, and would get as much as $60 apiece for them. He did hundreds of these and gave the money to his aunt to hold for him. The day Monet accompanied a local artist to paint and saw what painting could be, it was as though a veil had been lifted from his eyes. The local artist Boudin did a lot for forming Monets love of outdoor painting and painting ordinary people in ordinary cloths. Though he could not get a grant or money from his father Monet left to ...

Several years ago when I was ten I had an opportunity to travel to France. I went to a few museums which I liked including Yhe Louvre and The Pompidou Center. The museum I found most interesting was Mus'ee D' Orsay. All the paintings at Mus'ee D' Orsay were impressionist paintings. Claude Monet was the artist who intrigued me the most. What I liked particularly about his paintings was a lot of them consisted of his wife and his son. My absolute favorite painting was Woman with a Parasol. There are a few different paintings of his wife with a parasol which look quite similar. Some are by herself and at least one is with her son in the background. That is the one I chose to Claude Monet was bo ...

Claude Monet At The National Gallery Of Art - 1,276 words
Claude Monet at the National Gallery of Art Claude Monet is most definately my favorite Painter of all time. Widely considered the foremost Impressionist painter, Monet inspired Masters like Degas and Renoir. Monets paintings, characterized by their blurred lines, quick brush strokes and interpretation of light, capture the essence of the subject without the harsh realism of previous centuries. Earlier on in his career Monets paintings attempted to catch the momentary light and mobility of his subject. His paintings were done quickly and almost completely outdoors. As his career progressed, he became increasingly fascinated with the atmosphere. Late in his career Monet devoted himself to pai ...

Comparison Of Monet And Claude - 1,718 words
Claudes The Sermon on the Mount is a relatively large painting in a horizontal rectangular shape. It is a landscape painting with Jesus giving a sermon to a crowd of his followers as the subject. It states in the acoustic guide that Claude is trying to depict the landscape of Mount Tabor surrounded by the Dead Sea on the right and the Jordan River on the left. The painting is done from a high vantage point. One can see this because as the viewer looks at the painting he can see far into the distance, and on the (viewers) left the trees seem to be going downwards as if the viewer standing upon a hill and looking down over the trees. As they get further away they diminish in size. On the left ...

"Father Of Impressionism" Claude Monet was born in Paris on the 14th November, 1840. When he was five years old, he moved to the port town of Le Havre. For much of his childhood, Monet was considered by both his teachers and his parents to be undisciplined and, therefore, unlikely to make a success of his life. Enforcing this impression, Monet showed no interest in inheriting his father's wholesale grocery. The only subject which seemed to spark any interest in the child was painting. He developed a decent reputation in school l for the caricatures he was fond of creating. By the age of fifteen, he was receiving commission for his work, and was finally to become known as the "Father of Impre ...

-------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ (1814-75) The son of a small peasant farmer of Grville in Normandy, Millet showed a precocious interest in drawing, and arrived in Paris in 1838 to become a pupil of Paul Delaroche. He had to fight against great odds, living for long a life of extreme penury. He exhibited at the Salon for the first time in 1840, and married two years later. At this time, the main influences on him were Poussin and Eustache Le Sueur, and the type of work he produced consisted predominantly of mythological subjects or portraiture, at which he was especially adept (Portrait of a Naval Officer, 1845; Muse des Beaux-Arts, Rouen). His ...

Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality." They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

The Immpressionists At Argenteuil - 720 words
Argenteuil is a suburban town on the outskirts of Paris. The riverside town lies on the banks of the beloved Seine River, immortalized in many works by Claude Monet and Eugene Boudin. They are just two of the many Impressionist artists inspired by the scenery of Argenteuil. The short seven-mile train trip from Paris also contributed in getting artists to the location. Argenteuil is not different than that of other smaller French cities, yet the contribution Argenteuil made to the evolution of modern French painting sets it apart from neighboring villages. Monet and Boudin both painted very similar scenes of the small river town. Monet in particular painted a less classical piece than Boudin. ...

Impressionism relates to a style of painting and composing from the last third of the 19th century. It was started by Claude Monet and his paintings and then worked its way into Debussys compositions. In painting terms this style was characterized by short brush strokes of bright colorsto represent the effect of light on an object(Wechsler 6). The music of the impressionist composers contained hidden images and portrayed reality through music. The impressionist era was based mainly on light and the concept of reality and used nature as a background and ordinary subjects as the foreground. Impressionist works of music contained some of the same characteristics of impressionist painting. It wa ...

From the real to the surreal, Salvador Dali embodied it all. Once he was satisfied with his abilities to mimic what he saw in the world, he began to play with objects and space. He comprehended, perfected, and finally transcended realism, and his works became much more than paint on canvas. At the youthful age of fourteen, his charcoal drawings patterned techniques that Claude Monet is so renown for using. Dali was capable of portraying Monets stylistic texture in a texture-less medium. By the time he reached his twenties, he had perfected this impressionistic style using oil paint on canvas. As he perfected this style he became more realistic. From this point, Dali encompassed and transcend ...

Impressionism - 1,287 words
Impressionism is defined as the style of painting characterized by concentration on the immediate visual impression produced by a scene. Impressionistic paintings use unmixed primary colors and small strokes in order to stimulate actual reflected light. This method of painting varied greatly from the previous works of art categorized under "realism." Comparatively, realism emphasized the portrayal of modern life as it actually was, without idealization or presentation in the abstract form. The transition from realism to impressionism occurred gradually and can in no way be contained in a definite period of time. Yet, for the most part, it is believed to have originated in the nineteenth cent ...

... gories of bourgeois, proletarian, and peasant classes, proved so compelling that Marxist notions affected public policy throughout the Euro-American world for nearly a century. The arts were similarly affected, both in practice and in theory, by Marxist systems stressing fundamentally economic forces that underlie all modern civilization. This influence produced numerous Impressionist images that present or analyze class relations, family structures, and individual anxieties in the midst of social struggles. In capital, products are continually created and accumulated in new ways. This was true with Impressionist art. Similar to other goods it was marketed. It was at this time that art b ...

I spent my second night in a youth hostel in Paris last night. I arrived in Paris around 6:00am local time two days ago. The flight from LAX to Orly airport was ten about hours long. It wasn't so bad, though. There was nobody sitting next to me and a nice, elderly French lady two seats away. The charter flight that I flew on was run by a French airline, and it seemed that the majority of the passengers were French-speaking. When we were taking off from LA, all of the announcements were in both French and English, but the frequency of the English announcements seemed to decline as we got farther and farther away from the United States. Customs was amazingly simple. I breezed right though, and ...

We dont really know what Ebola has done in the past, and we dont know what it might do in the future. (p.49) According to Eugene Johnson, a civilian virus hunter, specializing in Ebola, the essence of the virus itself is one whose existence is still unintelligible to humans. The knowledge of the nature of this virus, as well as Marburg the gentle sister of the three filovirus sisters (Ebola Zaire, Ebola Sudan, and Marburg), remains questionable today. In his book, The Hot Zone, Richard Preston shares a horrifying account of the hideous outbreaks of these recognized deadly viruses, in particular the appearance of a lethal virus in the outskirts of Washington, DC. It began in October of 1989, ...
