Treat Nature By The Cylinder, The Sphere The Cone Analysis

Improved Essays
Treat nature by the cylinder, the sphere, the cone.” is a famous saying Paul Cézanne wrote for the next generation (Wikipedia, Paul Cézanne 2015). Without him, we can not talk about Picasso or Matisse because he was the one to have moved on from impressionism to post-impressionism and broke classic styles of art forms to lead the next generation into modern art. First of all Cézanne took away the idea to take the light transition into a drawing. Day and night, by minutes and hours, with the sun, clouds and rain, the light changes the color of nature and objects. Of course we would not be able to see things without light, but he thought impressionism was swayed too much on the matter. A drawing he wanted to create was solid and autonomous reconstruction. In other words, …show more content…
In doing so, Picasso had to create something different from both impressionism and post- impressionism. Multi view images are introduced here as a beginning of cubism. Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is said to be Picasso’s first cubism painting but cubism style was already seen in the work “two nude women (figure 4)”. You can clearly see the similarities in the two. Even though the models are females working in a brothel in Barcelona, they all have some eland of African taste, the face, the hair, color of the skin and exaggerated fat and masculine bodies. In Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, however, more of a multi angle combing technique is used. The third lady from the left has her leg drawn from the back and from the front at the same time. Eyes, noses, mouths and foreheads, many of the body parts are of multi angle combination. Cézanne’s pieces are chamfered to create the cubic atmosphere but cubism emphasized on multiple view angle combination to create the objects’ stereoscopic features (The Collection, Pablo Picasso

    Throughout Carnival, there are more women than men and a great display of female nudity. A dichotomous concept, nudity is both seen, through magazines, advertisements, and live performances, and heard, throughout lyrics and conversation. Depreciating the women, one is represented as an erotic object for male enticement and enjoyment. Both erotic and pornographic, the nude “perfect” woman shows the link between Carnival and sexuality. Sexism is clearly seen through the interaction of social classes; women are “prostitutes” and the “guests” of men, unable to pay their own way into some events and promoting a form of uneven dependence between the sexes (Rector 1989, 67-77).…

    Each of their works can be identified as a symbol of modern attitudes to gender and sexuality. Each artist has set out to challenge the modern and historic social stereotypes women are objected to. Their works purposely distort and reinvent the female image to create a juxtaposition to the embodied, sexualised image of women recognised in the public sphere. Hannah Wilke represents the 1970’s feminist art movement, her performances use a connection to burlesque and question traditional views of femininity. Marlene Dumas Creates the image of provocative sex industry workers, who’s confidence and sexual empowerment surprises an audience creating a contrast to the image of strippers in the public sphere.…

    Standing Female Nude poem actually derives from George Braque’s La Grande Nude portrait which belongs to the Cubist art movement which began in Paris around 1907. The Cubists used analytic system which requires to redefine the three parts of the portrait from several points of view, instead of using the single point of view. The moment is mentioned as ‘a new way of representing the world’ and divided into two phases as Synthetic(1913-20’s) and Analytic(1907-12) phase which is implied and mocked in the Standing Female Nude. The poem has also a very significant meaning for literature because of that it is a good symbol for the destructive effects of Cubism and Patriarchy which can be seen along the whole poem. In early era of Cubism,…

    we see that this particular product was certain;y for the use of men. But ironically we see in the advertisement a woman nakedly advertising the product. Yes, people say the fragrance can be used by both sexes if wanted. Based on the fact that some women prefer the fragrance of the opposite sex, but clearly the product was produced with the sole aim of being used only by men. Secondly was the picture of the Ad, which is the perfume bottle placed in between the breast of a woman, race lighter skinned or rather “white”, well-manicured nails with a vibrant colour red coat on both hands.…

    In Hip Hop Honey or Video Ho: African American Preadolescents’ Understanding of Female Sexual Scripts in Hip Hop Culture, authors Dionne Stephens and April Few explore how hip hop created black female sexual scripts that reinforce stereotypes about young black women. Stephens and Few describe how from hip hop emerged “the Diva, Gold Digger, Freak, Dyke, Gangster Bitch, Sister Savior, Earth Mother, and Baby Mama unique sexual scripts” (Stephens, Few 51). The Diva refers to a black woman who appears independent but relies on men to boost her social status. The Gold Digger refers to a black woman who uses sex to gain material and economic rewards. The Freak refers to a black woman who “decides to forego financial gains and only seeks to satisfy her own sexual desires” (Stephens; Few 52) and the Dyke refers to black women who exclusively enter sexual relationships with women and take on a more masculine role; the effects of these scripts go beyond simply pigeonholing and dichotomizing young black women, they actually influence behavior in black youth.…

    I feel like Manet strike out a lot in this painting needing improvement in some areas. Like how he rendered the black cat, the cat is so black you can hardly see it and he has painted it to the point it looks cartoony. E.)

    Collins in an article about the representations of female supers in popular culture, “women are often sexualized—typically by showing them in scanty or provocative clothing” (Collins), which the Star Wars series had previously done in Return of the Jedi. In the film, Princess Leia wore a slave bikini at one point, as seen in Figure 1. Rey’s costume contrasts this, as it is not sexual, as seen in Figure 2. It is practical clothing for someone who lived on a desert planet. Obviously, clothing does not only sexualize woman.…

    Women are called ‘sluts’ and ‘whores’ for enjoying sex or having a number of partners over time; while men are called ‘Casanovas’ or ‘Romeo’ for the exact same circumstance. This gives the idea that it is okay to be called sluts, if it gives that person attention. Men think it is okay to cat-call and call out women on the streets, making them feel uncomfortable. They were taught that it is flattering for women, and that women should be happy for the compliment. Cat calls are one thing, but brief conversations with the expectation of a hook-up are a new level, as the reasoning behind asking these sexual questions to complete strangers on the street.…
