In Albert Camus’s fiction novel, The Stranger, the main character, Meursault is an absurdist who is does not develop emotional bonds to those around him, and because of this, is looked at by society as an outsider. Camus uses the relationship between Meursault and Marie, Meursault’s belief in the meaninglessness of the individual person, and the symbol of the courtroom to show that the world is absurd, and that society can not accept the lack of order in the world.
Antoine Watteau’s La Perspective (View through the Trees in the Park of Pierre Crozat) uses many elements of the Rococo style of painting to instill a sense of intimacy. In this painting, members of the elite society gather unceremoniously in a wooded clearing. The people make casual exchanges as they mingle in the park. Trees and foliage dominate a majority of the painting. A small white building can be seen in the background through a clearing in the trees. Watteau uses color, composition, setting, and pose in the painting to create intimacy.
The theorists being compared in this discussion question would be Jean Piaget and Albert Bandura and how their theories fit into the developmental process. Both are great contributors to the field of psychology due to their theories on cognitive development. There are some similarities and differences between Albert Bandura’s Social learning theories with Piaget’s cognitive theory in term of ideas and subjects that were used.
Artwork, too, was just as divergent. Consider the Rococo masterpiece The Swing, by artist Jean-Honoré Fragonard. The delicate coiling of the tree branches, the ruffling of the fabric and lace on the subject’s dress, and the play of light and shadow in this painting of a woman on a swing in the forest are all visual hallmarks of the Rococo style. Again, contrast with a Neoclassic masterpiece Oath of the Horatii by Jacques-Louis David. This work, which shows

The vision was to have a colony on the Mississippi River that was a gateway to open and expand trade with the new world. On May 7, 1718, Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville and the French Mississippi Company officially founded Nouvelle-Orleans. Bienville would later become governor of the Louisiana colony three different times between the years 1702 and 1743. The city was named after Duke Philippe d'Orléans, who was France's head of state at the time (Briney).
At this time Paris was fun and careless before the French Revolution of 1789 released its horrors on it. But the outbreak of the revolution changed everything, and with all of the violence around, she fled France with her daughter to find safety in Italy (Moffat and Mossman). When she returned, Paris was a completely different place. However, the demand for her art had not changed. Vigee Le Brun is considered a painter of the rococo period. Rococo is best described as an eighteenth century art style that places importance on the carefree life rather than grand heroes. Originally the rococo fashion started in Paris, where Vigee Le Brun was born. It changed the way people looked at art and the world in general (Bleiberg). Vigee Le Brun not only used the rococo style in her art, but also to influence fashion, persuading women to wear simple, high waist shifts, which would be an important stepping stone in changing fashion forever. By refusing to put powder in her hair, she made being natural beautiful. If it weren’t for her innovations we might still be wearing Victorian gowns and wigs. She made fashion and styles for young women, such as herself, more daring and interesting (Steadman).
Jean-Antoine Watteau brought the rococo era into new hights beyond, architecture,furniture and sculpture into paintings All because of the variours inpiration that gave him the extra spark to emerge and break away from the norm. Earning him title as the main figure that started the rococo era.
After the ride and fall of High Renaissance came the style known as Mannerism. This style involved developing artist individual style, artificial, aesthetically fantastic images and breaking away from tradition including Renaissance. Mannerism was inspired by the
The industrial age was a time of revolution for Europe, when the introduction of factories, and the use of chemicals were a few of the changes that occurred. With the new restructuring of society, it was also a time of drastic adjustments to how Europeans led their lives in response to the aforementioned changes, and many more. William Booth, Henry Mayhew and Jeanne Bouvier discussed in their texts some of the aspects that characterized the quality of life of the lower classes. Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army and a Methodist minister, had greatly interacted with the poor and the evildoers of London, in his effort to deliver them from their predicaments (Perry, 207). Just like Booth, Mayhew, a sociologist and researcher, had
I nominate Jean-Honoré Fragonard, a brilliant artist that didn't get as much attention as he should've because he didn't follow the "exact" career path or the model that was set before him. He took a different approach by working with private collectors instead of royalty. His work was influenced by the Rocco style of art, with a erotic, whimsical-fun flare that captures the eye and holds it in awe. He expressed love and adventure in his art work that is still admired today. For example "The Swing",painted in 1767, depicts a bourgeois woman enjoying the simple pleasure of swinging. His works encompass the freedom and curiosity that was the Enlightenment period. In the "The Stolen Kiss", Fragonard shows a deep passion for intimacy,and love with
The artists Jean-Honore Fragonard and Jaques-Louis David both successfully embody their respective stylistic differences. Fragonard’s style of painting is Rococo, which is characterized by its softness, asymmetry and curviness. Contrasting these ideals is David’s style of painting, Neo-Classicism. Neo-Classicism is synonymous with strong gestures, symmetry, and solidness. Two works that best exemplify the ideals of each style of painting are Fragonard’s The Swing, 1767 and David’s The Death of Socrates, 1787. Although at first glance, it is easier to focus on how each work is different to the other, one can argue that they are similar in theme. Both
Witches have been portrayed in various form throughout history. They have been seen as a young teen finding her new powers, a pointy hat while riding a broom, and a green face female with a hatchback stirring some boiling liquid in a huge pot. Tv shows have also shown witches in two forms seen as good and also bad. When it comes down to it, the real history of witches is often dark and deadly. Three major stories of witches include Angele de la Barthe, Mother Shipton, and Catherine Monvoisin.
It is hard to believe that what began during the Renaissance would be followed by what we refer to as the Baroque period beginning in the 1600’s and later the Rococo. The term Baroque was first used in the eighteenth-century by critics in a negative way. “To the eyes of these critics, who favored the restraint and order of Neoclassicism, the works of Bernini, Borromini, and Pietro da Cortona appeared bizarre, absurd, even diseased—in other words, misshapen, like an imperfect pearl” (Camara, E., n.d. para. 12). Stylistic style differs in the Baroque period with the use of interrupted contours, dynamism, and instability. In addition, artists were moving toward a more realistic subject matter and not the idealized portrayals we saw in the Renaissance period.
