Country Maid Art Analysis Research Paper

… Pissarro often painted working-class women, and some of his other well-known works include The Maidservant, Washerwoman, and A Young Woman Washing Dishes. Pissarro painted the darker side of rural life, unlike his fellow Impressionists who enjoyed showing the beauty of unspoiled nature. "The key theme of domestic labor is linked, in turn, to Pissarro's views on agricultural labor and the market economy" and in domestic servitude in The Little Country Maid.[footnoteRef:1] [1: "Groundbreaking perspective on Camille Pissarro opens at the Legion of Honor this fall," Art Daily, December 12, 2011, http://www.artdaily.com/index.asp?int_sec=11&int_new=51257&int_modo=1]

Pissarro was the lone Impressionist who made domestic workers his central focus, just as much as Degas focused on ballet dancers and Monet upon flowers. Pissarro was described as a political radical during his…. [read more]


Art of Comparison: Two Treatments of Judith Essay

… ¶ … Art of Comparison:

Two Treatments of Judith and Holofernes

Often, in the history of art, certain themes are portrayed again and again. Throughout much of Western History, religion provided a source of artistic inspiration. The Biblical story of Judith and Holofernes was portrayed by numerous artists. The story of Judith and Holofernes offers features that appeal to the macabre imagination. It is also a tale of victory over superior odds. Right triumphs over might -- a "mere widow" defeats a great empire and saves her people and city from foreign conquest. Thus, Judith and Holofernes contains elements that speak to different generations. Each age can see a similar, yet varying, message in the timeless tale. In Matteo di Giovanni and Antiveduto Grammatica approach…. [read more]


Ho Women Are Portrayed in Late 19th Century Art Term Paper

… ¶ … Women are Portrayed in Late 19th Century Art

Throughout history, women have served as the subjects of compelling and poignant works of art, reflecting in large part how society viewed them and what roles they were expected to play. These gender differences were especially pronounced during the 19th century when women were women and men were men, and these differences can be readily discerned in the portraiture that emerged during this period. This paper provides an analysis of how women were portrayed in late 19th century art in general and in the paintings of women by John Singer Sargent and James Abbott McNeal Whistler in particular. An examination of how women are portrayed in paintings in general before the 19th century is provided,…. [read more]


De Beers and Coca Cola Essay

… It is important for De Beers to focus on their footprints in the environment in the operations that they perform. The main operations of De Beer have been certified. In order to create an opportunity to make a product that is different from everyone else's, the company is also developing a brand of luxury goods and diamonds (Reilly, 2004). It also created a joint venture with successful companies in LVMH in 2001 and also opened a store in Tokyo by the name of De Beers LV. It was very frustrating for the company to open the stores in the U.S.A. which they strongly desired because the U.S. government put a ban on their business due to the alleged violations and mistrust (Business Write, 2003).

Price Beauty? Term Paper

… These ideas provide an excellent overview of that Age's understanding of the subject. In the second edition of his Enquiry (1759),

Burke addressed the idea of Beauty, by which he meant "that quality or those qualities in bodies by which they cause love, or some passion similar to it." Burke's goal of identifying the physiological relationship between external objects and their emotional apprehension is most apparent in Part Four [of the Enquiry], where he hoped to "discover what affections of the mind produce certain emotions of the body; and what distinct feelings and qualities of body shall produce certain determinate passions in the mind."

Physical beauty, therefore, was seen as inspiring an emotional response; specifically a feeling of love and affection on the part of…. [read more]


Renoir's Method of Characterization in His Movie Which Called the Rules of the Game Term Paper

… Characterization in Renior's Rules Of The Game

At the level of high culture, most clearly in its modernist phase, there has always been this dream of transcending the local, the provincial, and the national, or in social terms, to transgress the narrow bounds of the bourgeois world and to enter a realm that is nothing if not International: the transcendence lay in being truly "European" or cosmopolitan." (Kroes, 1996, p. 126)

Rural France before World War II was a world of contrasts. There was a stark contrast between the world of the aristocrats and the world of the servants who attended to them. These two worlds were separated by social barriers created by a desire by the bourgeois to retain their status and separation from…. [read more]


Othello Shakespeare's Skepticism: Unconditional Love Research Paper

… Then he goes on to say farewell to his sane mind, and the only solid thing he has ever know, his military duty: "O, now, for ever/Farewell the tranquil mind! farewell content!/Farewell the plumed troop and the big wars/That make ambition virtue! O, farewell!/Farewell the neighing steed and the shrill trump,/The spirit-stirring drum, the ear-piercing fife" (3.3.350-352) for he is now mad. He then moves on to tell Iago that he no longer loves Desdemona but now hates her; "Swell, bosom, with thy fraught,/For 'tis of aspics' tongues!" (3.3.449-450) Then in Act V Scene 2 he realizes that he has erred and that Desdemona was never unfaithful and claims that the only way to deal with his deed of killing her in her innocence is….

Henry Fielding's Joseph Andrews Research Paper

… Either way, the presence of parody, in defining the distance of Fielding's novel from the bourgeois romance of Richardson, is sufficiently clear; equally evident is the use of parody in the cultural clashes of the mid- eighteenth century over ethics, class, and sexuality. (Dentith 61-2).

Dentith suggests the contradictions in the way that Fielding's response to Richardson views him from a lofty aristocratic height by stigmatizing him as "bourgeois" at the same time that it nervously indicates "conservative" class politics by "mock[ing]" the "class presumption" of Pamela. To some extent we can read the unveiling of Joseph Andrews as having been a gentleman all along as being Fielding's response to Pamela's need to attain respectability and marry into a higher class -- Fielding in response….

Margaret Atwood's Theory of Natural Survival Term Paper

… Margaret Atwood's Theory Of Natural Survival

Margaret Atwood is arguably one of the most influential female Canadian writers of the last four decades. Her best-selling books have one many awards and, in the case of novels such as Surfacing and Handmaid's Tale, have inspired/enraged/empowered women in several decades to seek out their own power and challenge the patriarchal domination of their lives. Surfacing, which first appeared in 1972, was particularly embraced by the feminist community, which found a sort of odd manifesto in the heroine's descent into primeval nudity and her return which rejected all forms of victimhood and colonization of the body in exchange for a new strength and innocence in her mothering and mating relationships.

This above all, to refuse to be a…. [read more]


Touki Bouki and Black Girl: Experimental Films Essay

… Another trait indicative of the Nouvelle Vague is the confusion of fiction and non-fiction plots as a result of the verite-style aesthetic. In modern times, this aesthetic is often seen in reality television programming, as well as normative types of documentary television and films.

Touki Bouki seems to be heavily influenced by the filmmaking techniques developed in the early and mid 20th century by the Soviets. The editing style is non-linear and demonstrates characteristics of Soviet Montage Theory, or the style of editing/montage developed in the Soviet Union, primarily Russia, beginning approximately at the turn of the 20th century. The editing style and aesthetics of the Russian's are more associative than literal. The task of editing and montage assembly is a focal point of 20th…. [read more]


Inter-Culture Communication Holfstede's Cultural Dimensions Geert Essay

… Inter-Culture Communication

Holfstede's Cultural Dimensions

Geert Holfstede is a prominent Dutch cultural anthropologist who argues against the existence of a universal management method or management (Changing Minds 2011). Management is not separable from processes already interacting within a society. It assimilates with developments and occurrences in the family, school, politics and government. It necessarily interacts also with religion and science. Hofstede formulated five dimensions of differences or value perspectives between national cultures. These dimensions are power distance, individualism vs. collectivism, masculinity vs. femininity, long-term vs. short-term orientation, and uncertainty avoidance. He uses and commends these dimensions to managers in order to know, understand and empathize with people of other countries. These help the manager become aware of how people of other cultures think, feel and…. [read more]


Bollywood Indian Culture Term Paper

… They have a traditional, low caste wedding at the same time as the family's bride and groom, under an umbrella of marigolds in the monsoon downpour on a bridge in the garden and then are welcomed into the family's wedding tent as a n expression of the modern acceptance of the lower castes.

The filmas most overt visual references to old Hindi movies crop up in the parallel romantic drama that develops "downstairs" between an initially clownish wedding planner, P.K. Dube (Vijay Raaz), and the Verma family servant, Alice (Tilotama Shome), whose grave, watchful, presence temporarily stuns the loquacious hustler into slack-jawed silence. It makes perfect sense that the touchstone films that make their bone-deep cultural influence visible in the behavior of the servants are…. [read more]


Angelica Kauffmann Cornelia Presenting Her Children or Mother of the Gracchi Chapter

… Angelica Kauffmann, Cornelia Presenting Her Children as Her Treasures or Mother of the Gracchi, 1785

Initial Reaction to the Work

Initial thoughts and/or feelings about the work

This work is subtly colored and deeply filled with felt sentiment. Most neoclassical works are known for their coldness and lack of emotional vitality, but here we have a picture that has a touch of simple humanity. The expression worn by the anonymous matron is probably the picture's most priceless element. She seems to ask if you mean that the pearls are not any better (Abbott, 2013).

Aspect of the work that most interests you

I believe this painting is an elegant and classy one with a very sweet message for all. The painting has a rather simple…. [read more]


Harlem 1920-1960 Term Paper

… Harlem 1920-1960 Culture of the Harlem

Harlem has indeed been a mirror of the diversity that sums up the essence of the American nation. It is the social, economic, and political environment in which the African-American cultural individuality has integrated and defined itself as a cornerstone of what came to be known today as the American nation. Despite the multitude of opinions arguing that there is no true American cultural identity, it is beyond any doubt its existence, even if it cannot be fully integrated in a cultural blueprint as expressed by the traditional analysis of the European standards. Indeed, the American culture lacks the time duration and from this point-of-view it can be said to be inferior to the French or the Italian ones…. [read more]


Joan of ARC's Spiritual and Military Leadership Term Paper

Joan of Arc's Spiritual and Military Leadership Helped to Inspire a Demoralized King and Nation Rise up Against the English Nobility is Deus pro-nobis, quis contra nos? (if God is for us, who is against us?) -- Romans 8:31

Few young women in history have attracted as much attention from the historians as Joan of Arc. According to Dumas (1970), "There are few people nowadays who would dispute the spiritual stature of Joan of Arc, one of the most remarkable women who has ever lived, although over five centuries after her death there is still no common agreement as to the exact nature and….

Jeffrey Burds, Chapter 19 of World of the Shadows: An International History of Espionage (The Golden Age of Soviet "Illegals")

This chapter opens with a quote from Stalin, who in 1937 questioned the prevailing belief that bourgeoisie states would refrain from sending "spies, wreckers, saboteurs and assassins" into socialist states.
