ART HISTORY TEST 8 | Revolutions


Create a painting in either neoclassical or romantic style of a person, place, or scene...
  • A scene out of history, like David, Turner, or Delecroix
  • A local landscape, like Gainsborough or Constable
  • An extremely expressive portrait, like Gericault or Goya
  • A "genre" slice of everyday life, like Chardin or Ingres

THIS TIME, you may choose to work with a different media-
  • Use a thick impasto, like Chardin (be sure to mix plenty of glue in your tempera to prevent cracking & flaking)
  • Use pastels, like Ingres, or
  • Use watercolor, like Turner

    • Neoclassisism

    • Landscape
    • Impasto- paint that is applied so thick that make it stand out from the surface. Impasto was used frequently to mimic the broken-textured quality of highlights—i.e., the surfaces of objects that are struck by an intense light.
    • Pastel- dry painting & drawing medium executed with fragile, finger-size sticks made of powdered pigments combined with a minimum of nongreasy binder, usually gum tragacanth or, methyl cellulose.
    • Watercolor
    • Genre painting- painting of scenes from everyday life, of ordinary people in work or recreation, depicted in a generally realistic manner. Genre art contrasts with that of landscape, portraiture, still life, religious themes, historic events, or any kind of traditionally idealized subject matter. Intimate scenes from daily life are almost invariably the subject of genre painting
