I think this painting is sad because it shows a women trying to figure out what to do now that they killed everyone. I think it belongs in the artistic movement because it shows violence which is part or Romanticism. This artwork makes me think of death and people taking land that's not theirs. It was painted in 1826 by Eugène Delacroix.

When I first saw this piece, it inspired awe and a feeling of glory in me. It feels as if the woman in it is about to march off with her husband into battle. There they will find great glory and fame. It belongs to classicism because Apollo was one of the greek (and roman) gods, and the artist who painted this wanted to bring him back and glorify him in the artists' own perception. The piece makes me think about what we used to be, and what we have turned into. The artist was Gerard de Lairesse.

A majestic view of a castle and valley. Just pure beauty exemplified to the max. This piece belongs to romanticism because of that. It ignores everything that may be wrong in real life, and only brings out the beauty of the scene. This painting makes me think of our own rolling hills and valleys, and the beauty that they hold. The artist of this painting was Theodore (accent on the first e) Gericault.

Evoking the dirty and sad times that the Industrial revolution brought on. This piece is pure sadness, showing the poverty of the time at the highest point. That is why it belongs to realism, because there is nothing changing the truth. It really makes me think about how well off we are and how bad other countries in the world are compared to us.

This painting isn't realism, but isn't romactism either. It feels like a blend of the two, show what life was like, but not in the worst way possible. Thats why it's impressionism, it captures the moment, but not in an overly discusting way. This piece was done in the 1880's. The artist was Childe Hassam.

The painting makes me think of the good things in life. It is a simple panting that perfectly captures a moment in time. It shows a sunny day. It belongs in impressionism because of the happiness in the picture because impressionism shows one moment but it is usually a happy moment. It shows the happier side of every day life. It was created in 1899 by Camille Pissarro.

1. Romanticism: Romanticism was a period in time where people were willing to express their emotions and feelings in their paintings and artwork. The paintings evoked emotions and feelings and were often exaggerated for effect. This painting, created in 1819 by Theodore Gericault, depicts a handful of people after surviving a shipwreck, floating helplessly in the water on a poorly built life raft. The dead bodies and helpless people would put this painting under Romanticism because it is over exaggerated to provoke people's emotions and feelings. My first thoughts of this pieces was that it was very intense and almost scary. I could almost feel the pain and suffering of the people adrift on the raft.

http://www.bmagic.org.uk/objects/1885P2467
2. Classicism: Classicism is an art form from the Greco-Roman time, also known as geometric art. This form of art shows no emotion at all and is very formal. In this painting called Dreamers, painted in 1860 by Albert Joseph Moore, The shapes and patterns in the picture, not to mention the lack of emotion, would suggest this piece would be categorized under the time period of Classicism. My initial reaction to the painting was that it was very well painted, but was very boring and not really that interesting.

http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/38.75
3. Realist: Unlike Romanticism, a realist's art would reflect real life situation and a depiction of everyday life. Realists wanted their painting to be as believable as possible, and as close to a photograph as they could make it. In this painting created in 1857 by Jean-Francios Millet, it shows a picture of a women raking hay in the fields. She doesn't look happy nor sad, but she looks like she has accepted that job as being a part of her life. My first reaction to the picture was that it is relatable to and the painting isn't trying to do anything or show anyone something in particular. It is just showing some people's everyday life.

http://www.impressionniste.net/impressionism_history.htm
4. Impressionism: This form of art is a little bit of both realist and romanticism. It is a real life situation but with a twist in it. The art of impressionism was focused on light and unusual visual angles. It was made by combining many small strokes of the paintbrush,and normally had a positive view of society. This painting was created by Auguste Renior in 1883, and it shows a women sitting by the sea. Her features are distinguishable, but the rest of the painting is in globs of color. When I first saw this picture, I thought it was very interesting because at first glance, I couldn't really tell what is in the background of the painting, so i was forced to look at it more carefully, which made me pay more attention to the detail in the painting. This is why this painting should be considered an impressionist's piece of art.

Classicism- http://www.ranker.com/review/autumn-_the-spies-with-the-grapes-of-the-promised-land_/19904080

"Autumn", by Nicolas Poussin in the late 1600's, depicts a rather ordinary fall day. I When I first saw this painting, I noticed how nothing really stands out in a fantastical way, like in other genres of art such as Romanticism. Because of the averagness of the activity going on and the simple topic of seasons, "Autumn" would be put into the classical catergory.

Romanticism- http://www.romanticism-in-art.org/Nightmare-(The-Incubus)-1781-82.html
One of the aspects of Romanticism was horror and fear, which is why I chose " Nightmare" painted by Johann Henry Fuseli in 1781. The pure black background makes the viewer focus in on the white dress of the girl, distraught in slumber. I liked how the black and grey around the girl looks like it's slowly overtaking the bright gown.

Retreat from the Storm", by Jean-Francois Millet in 1814 tells the realistic story of a mother and son who must hault their duties in the fields due to a storm. This painting is definantly realism becuase this scenario could have really occured during this time. It also shows the hard life of a lower class family, and what a mother would do to feed her family. This theme is brought to life with the colorful garments of the mom and son contrasted with the dreary day in the background.

This painting is called "Sacre de Napoleon" by David Jacques Louis. My initial thought about this painting was it was a good way to represent classicism, because it expressed the motives behind the Classicism movement.

It also makes me think of the enlightenment because these people all look every educated.

The painting shows ordinary characters in real life situations. It makes me think about how peaceful the scenery looked like, and still looks like. today.Gustave Courbet 1854
Impressionism:Landscape at Dusk : It shows how beautiful scenery can be portrayed. It shows the positive view on life. It makes me think about the sun setting every night and how beautiful it would look. Vincent van Gogh 1885.

Classicism: http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/his/CoreArt/art/neocl_dav_leroy.html
My initial thoughts on the piece were that it was boring and didn't really show anything or have any importance. But in some cases, that's what Classicism is. This painting is a self-portrait of Alphonse Leroy by Jacques-Louis David from 1783. It is formal and, to me, shows no emotion really and that's why I believe it falls under the classicism period.
Romanticism: http://traumwerk.stanford.edu/philolog/2006/04/goya_friedrich_and_romanticism_1.html
The painting is The Sea of Ice by Caspar David Friedrich. My initial thoughts were that this represented Romanticism well because it showed the love of nature, or just the beauty of nature. This makes me think about the beauty behind things that we maybe don't get to see. When we think of ice burgs we don't initially think about them in a beautiful way but just things floating in the water.
Realism: http://untitledsarah.blog62.fc2.com/blog-entry-81.html
This painting is the Third Class Carriage by Honore Daumier in 1862. My initial thoughts about this painting were that it showed the truth about people from the early 1900's. It showed the 'real' side of the people instead of the beautiful side. It belongs in realism paintings because it shows real-life situations and was believable. This makes me think about how art doesn't have to be beautiful or emotional, it can be anything you want it to be no matter how plain or ugly.
Impressionism: http://www.claudemonetworks.com/painting/ships-in-a-harbor
This painting is Ships in a Harbor by Claude Monet from 1873. My initial thoughts of this painting were that it represented impressionism in many ways. It represents impressionism because, to me, it is at an unusual angle and it is reflecting light off of the water.

Classicism: http://en.artoffer.com/_images_user/3408/23632/large/William-Blake-Religion-Emotions-Fear-Modern-Times-Classicism.jpg

This piece reminds me of the olden artistic movements. It is very classical with the naked men and landscapes with provides a very classical style to the painting. This makes me think about fear and was created by William Blake in 1826.

Romanticism: http://s2.hubimg.com/u/6175309_f1024.jpg

This artwork reminds me of the slow moving water and men slowly traveling. It belongs in Romanticism because of the calm environment instead of a fast flowing fearless environment. It makes me think about a boat journey. This was produced by Adolph Tideman in 1848.

This piece truly represents the meaning of Realism. It marks the the realistic Earth by showing people and animals. It belongs in this category because realism means realistic and this is how realistic it gets. It makes me think about talking to someone at the park with his dog. Gustave Courbet was the artist and was produced in 1854.

i think this paiting is very sad in a way bacause you can see the farmers looking at the wealthy with all their goods knowing there probley starving and struggling toget there food. This painting is formal with mixed emotions. I believe this peice goes with classicism.

I really like this peice by girodet called the bruial of Atala, because it really shows the romantic flair and passion. This painting is based on a story about forbidden love.

When I saw this painting i first noticed on how hard these woman work to save and feed there familys lives just for food. Imagine the aching in their back for hours. This peice is very harsh reality of poverty thats why i think it goes best with realism.

Impressionism:

This painting called Porte de la Riene at Aigeus-Mortes by Jean Frederic Bazille is very pretty in my opinion. This medieval castle is beutiful its a happy painting.
