jungfrau Posted October 24, 2013 Share Posted October 24, 2013 Hello everyone here, I'm holding a brand new ID and really appreciate your urgent help. I'm an international student of an AHIS program( bachelor level but half of the regular credits of normal bachelor degree) in a local Canadian University and I was feeling probably my paper got an unfair grade but I'm not that professional insider and English is not my first language, consequently I cannot say that for sure. Would you just take a look and make a decision what the grade you would like to give for that? Thank you very very much!!! requirement Choose one of the major works illustrated in your textbook. Now, pretend to be a 19th C art critic and write a short newspaper article that attacks the image viciously --- explain why you hate the style and subject matter given your views of what art should be. For example, if you are an admirer of Neo-Classicism, you will critique Rococo for certain reasons, or if you are an adherent of Romanticism, you will critique Neo-Classicism for certain reasons. Both sides of the debate should become evident. Why does the work not live up to your value system? How has the artist failed the public? What should he/she be doing instead? Remember, writing styles were formal in the 19th C, and you want the readers of the newspaper to note your learnedness when it comes to art and to be impressed by your articulate argument. Write "I cannot" rather than "I can't" for example. Be critical without being rude. Using sophisticated arguments and wit as your weapons. This piece should be no longer than 2 pages typed and double-spaced. When the Revolution Fades Away Imagine living in a world 200 years from now, when the debate on the French Revolution issues could be few, and the chance of printing them as top headlines seems even slimmer, since the impact of that distant movement continues fading away. Standing in front of what we call, Neoclassical paintings, The Oath of the Horatii, for instance, with its heavily reliance on specific historical context, viewers from the 21st century with little background knowledge of ancient Roman cultural must have difficulties reading the dramatic moment David planned to convey. The border dispute between Rome and Alba, the scene showing a tradition of champion determined through warrior dual, and their very stylized but unfamiliar architectural elements set in the background might probably bring about estrangement. Combined with the social trends in France during the period David dedicated himself to creating, the real intention underlying can be reached only through a more essential interpretation. The painting depicts the three sons of Horatius give the Roman salute, and swear on their swords to protect Rome to the death. As a propaganda, the French government actually intended to promote a sense of nationalism among their people as well as build intense duty, pride and loyalty to the country. As a political tool, the propagandized art purposely imposes on the masses, regardless to what extent it has achieved its mission, does it deviate from the essence of art ? People living in the new era will be enjoying a dramatically different political and social environment where plausibly monarchy no longer exists, wars could be avoided through tactful diplomacy and an efficient operation of an exemplifiable egalitarian society should be expected, on the other hand, the essential elements within human nature, must remain consistent. Joy, anger, sadness, fear, disgust, ecstasy… all play together for creating an unparalleled epic symphony of humanity, in some chapters, the theme is all about salvation, the climax is witnessed exactly at the moment of Crucifix and from then on all sins cleared as God send his own son to do so, and what noteworthy here the tale of father and son is a conventional as well as symbolic depiction expressed throughout the history of art. Still the same group of spectators who admirably living in the modern world, when being presented the Romanticism masterpiece, Saturn Devouring One of His Children, by Francisco Goya, their evoking interior terrors must have got them totally involved in, not only being as viewers, but anticipate an spiritual journey about the fear, bitterness and defeat of a common people plus the intricacy among family members. What connects viewers is utterly fundamental human emotion, for understanding it nothing historical or social contexts required any longer, people then unite regardless the period of time, the social system, the language, or the distinct taste of art. When the Revolution fades away, the true art, the essential human emotion and the universal value still remain and lead us to a more humanitarian, unified and brighter future. Actually my paper got C-, and the maximum degree is A+, thoughI can recognize some grammer mistakes like "heavily reliance on" should be replaced with "heavy reliance on"blabla, I thought it probably worth a little better like B level? Consider it a bachelor level associate degree not a graduate school paper. Thank you very much! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
