Women in the Arts

CHECKING OUT TCHAIKOVSKY; THE ART OF WOMEN IN THE 1800S

Watch Media

—–

PRELIMINARIES: Our discussion this week has two parts–the first related to chapter 31 and the second one related to chapters 31-32. Do both parts. There is also the usual EXPLORE list under the topic. Be sure to use that instead of any random googling for answers–you are required to use the class text each week and at least one of the EXPLORE-listed websites. HINT: The Explore list normally suggests what page numbers to focus on. ANOTHER HINT: If using the eBook purchased via our bookstore, when you just click on the on-screen page, the page number appears on the lower left of the screen. Jot it down.

TOPIC: Please respond to both of the following, using the class text and sources under the Explore heading as the basis of your response:

Select one composition by Tchaikovsky that you enjoy. Using the class text as well as the link to that music, describe the music and subject matter of that work, and explain why you enjoy it. Passionate nationalism, like Tchaikovsky’s for Russia, could be a feature of Romantic art and music and in the arts of the late 1800s. Give an example of music today (besides national anthems) that is characterized by nationalism.
Select two specific paintings depicting females—one by one of these male artists: Manet, Degas, Dewing, or Eakins the other by one of these female artists: Cassatt, Morisot, Haudecort-Lescot, Sara M. Peale. All of these listed artists can be found at the links in the EXPLORE list or in chapters 31-32 of our class text. Compare and contrast these two depictions of women, and comment on any general tendencies that you detect among artists of that era in this respect. Compare this situation in the late 1800s to the way females are depicted in our own modern times, using at least one specific modern example.
