What do these works have in common? Last

This lesson has a starter for students to make connections and leads into an analysis task exploring how an artist's work develops, looking for style and technique changes as well as ideas and concepts. Its a nice variation on art history research approaches and focuses the students more on what they are looking at in the work of an artist over their life. The starter is fun and always engages as students like guessing at what the connection may be. Ideal as a back up lesson, an intervention lesson or as evidence of informed personal response for GCSE and A Level work

Odd One Out - Birth and Death

Odd One Out - Birth and Death

A starter to engage students on entry - looking for clues for connections they can make between the images and learn a bit about Art History along the way. These starters always go down well even with the reluctant participant because they can look and suggest possible answers, and students can get new ideas on approaches for their own projects.

Winslow Homer - American Painter - 19th Century - Oil Watercolor - 187 Slides   (Public Domain)

Winslow Homer - American Painter - 19th Century - Oil Watercolor - 187 Slides (Public Domain)

MANY ACTUAL SLIDES ARE IN THE PREVIEW. IT IS YOUR BEST INDICATION OF QUALITY. This presentation covers the art of Winslow Homer, the top American artist of the 19th century. Homer was equally proficient in oil and watercolor painting. He single handedly set a very high bar for American watercolor painting for the 20th century. Homer was self taught. He got his big break when Harper's Magazine sent him to the front of the American Civil War to illustrate it for the magazine. His first oil paintings also flowed from this experience. Homer's career continued to enlarge from there. He painted the former slaves during the Reconstruction in the South. He also painted ordinary Americans in small Midwest towns and on the Atlantic Coast. The people were going to school, tending the farm, swimming in their "swim costumes", building model ships and every other "ordinary" pursuit imaginable. Homer painted it all. Then in the 1880s he moved to Maine and became such a great Marine painter, in both watercolor and oil, that most people forgot he'd ever painted anything else. Not satisfied with painting just the ocean of Maine and the lakes of the Adirondacks, by the 1900s he was also doing Marine Paintings of Key West, Cuba, Bermuda, Nassau, and other tropical locations. This product covers all facets of Homer's art, not just his Marine paintings. The student will study the long arc of Winslow Homer's remarkable career.

Thomas Eakins - American Artist - 1844-1916 - Realism - 166 Slides  (Public Domain)

Thomas Eakins - American Artist - 1844-1916 - Realism - 166 Slides (Public Domain)

THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES ON THIS PAGE FOR YOUR REVIEW. THIS IS THE BEST INDICATOR OF PRODUCT QUALITY. Thomas Eakins was the great realist artist from the East who was master of many art media, including, oil painting, watercolor, sculpture, and photography. He was also an educator at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, an art college. His innovations in teaching are used in art education throughout America today, although there was great resistance to them in his own time. Eakins almost became a surgeon instead because he was fascinated by anatomy. He used this fascination in art though and got every part of the human body straining and moving as it should. His Dr. Gross painting sold for $77 million and was an utterly realistic portrayal of a first operation on a cancerous human femur. His sports' paintings, especially of boxers and oarsmen were equally authentic. When it came time for someone to do the sculptures for Lincoln's and Grant's horses for New York City, he was the choice because he could make a horse look right due to his anatomical realism. Another sculptor did Lincoln and Grant to sit on the horses. Eakins crowned all of his achievements by painting the most extraordinary portraits in oil. He was indifferent to making his subjects look better. He captured them exactly as they were, inside and out. He would not change a thing. There is no understanding of American Art and American art education without learning about this fascinating artist.
