Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - Art History - Post Impression - 187 Slides

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - Art History - Post Impression - 187 Slides

This is a complete presentation on Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - Art History - Post Impressionism. THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FOR YOUR REVIEW ON THIS PAGE. THIS IS YOUR BEST INDICATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY. EXCERPT: Painting: Vincent van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, 1888, oil, canvas Arguably the best portrait of van Gogh, as painted by an artist other than himself. Lautrec was 23 and van Gogh 34 when this was painted. Perhaps because of his own deformities, Lautrec was especially skilled in picking up slight nuances in a subject’s face or way of holding himself. Here he captures the inherent tenseness and anxiety which permeated van Gogh, even while he was relaxing with a friend. His body is leaning forward and his hands seem to be moving one over the other. The expression on his face is slightly tense, wary and watchful. A glass of absinthe is in front of him. Both he and Lautrec drank it together, one after the other. Today we know that absinthe is no more dangerous than any other alcohol. Back then, it was considered the most dangerous alcoholic beverage. EXCERPT: Painting: Streetwalker, 1890-91, Toulouse-Lautrec, oil, cardboard The prostitute Golden Helmet is the subject. The nickname refers to her hair. The sitting took place in the garden of Lautrec's neighbor in Montmartre. Lautrec avoided fantasy with his subject matter. Rather, he accurately reflected the circumstances surrounding his subjects. Lautrec and van Gogh were among the first artists to paint working class people and prostitutes differently from the artists before them. The prior way of depicting them was as types of people. Lautrec and van Gogh painted them as individuals instead. Many young women were drawn to Paris initially because they wanted to become stars like Jane Avril or La Goulue. When their hopes faded, they fell into prostitution instead. In the twentieth century, women would experience the same as they flocked to Hollywood instead.

Blooms Questioning in Art

Blooms Questioning in Art

A great resource to utilise questioning in art. Add your own questions to the palette. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on the colour paint selected. A simple but effective starter or plenary.

Felix Vallotton - Nabis - Post Impression - Art History - 210 Slides

Felix Vallotton - Nabis - Post Impression - Art History - 210 Slides

This is a complete presentation on Felix Vallotton - Nabis - Post Impression - Art History. THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FOR YOUR REVIEW IN THE PREVIEW. THIS IS YOUR BEST INDICATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY. Excerpt: Vallotton was born in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1865 and moved to Paris in 1992 to study art at the Académie Julian. By 1892, he was affiliated with Les Nabis (The Prophets), a group of young friends who were artists that included Pierre Bonnard, Ker-Xavier Roussel, Maurice Denis, and Edouard Vuillard (dissolved by 1900). During the 1890s, he was allied with the avant-garde. His paintings reflected the style of his woodcuts, with flat areas of color, hard edges, and simplified detail. Felix Vallotton reinvented the woodcut in the decade from 1890-1900. His reductive approach to woodcuts was extremely modern and stark. Thematically, he explored politics, Parisian life and gender dynamics at the turn of the century (19th to 20th). In his own time, he was criticized for the severity of his woodcuts. Time proved him the correct one. His woodcuts are today universally acclaimed. In 1900, his interest shifted back to painting. He was newly focused on the domestic scenes he discovered as a married man plus landscapes. His landscapes are universally acclaimed. His non-landscape paintings after 1900 sometimes depicted a bitter realism independent of the artistic mainstream. Vallotton was a popular artist in his own time and was continually shown in the Paris Salons. Vallotton died of complications from cancer just one day after his 60th birthday in 1925. He had completed over 1700 paintings, 200 prints and also had written novels and plays. Some of his plays were performed. Many experts believe that he remains undervalued in the present day. There was a major retrospective Vallotton show at the Grand Palais in France in 2013-2014. One aspect of his work which has continually undercut his reputation is that most of his nude paintings are deemed “dreadful” and complicate the task of exhibiting his work. One is forced to include at least some of his nudes in any retrospective exhibit. His nudes were the most contentious pieces exhibited at the 2013-2014 show. Theories abound as to what was Vallotton’s purpose, if any, with these nudes. He left no answers.
