Analysis of Gustave Courbet’s and Eduoard Manet’s contributions to Modernism.

Subject: Art
Assignment #1

This assignment is based on the required readings that discuss the artists Gustave Courbet and Eduoard Manet. Most of those readings can be found as addendums to Lesson 2 under the Lessons tab (one of the Courbet readings is at Click on past exhibitions. Go to 2008 exhibits). Using the information from those readings and the FADIS images that correspond to them, write a short essay (approximately 3-4 pages or 850-1000 words, typewritten, double-spaced) comparing the innovations of Gustave Courbet to those of Eduoard Manet. Address the following in your essay:

How did each artist contribute individually to the ?rise of modernism???
What similarities do you find in their approach to their work both technically and stylistically, their attitude toward critics, and their status as innovators of their time?
What differences do you see in their contributions to Modern art? .
Use at least one specific artistic example from each artist to substantiate your points. Be detailed when discussing the image as it illustrates visually the points you make.
This essay is your own critical analysis of the two artists, but you might quote from the readings. If you do take information directly from the readings, you must cite your source within your essay (use author and page number next to quote). NOTE: I will not accept papers that use sources other than the assigned readings (especially Wikipedia).

Please submit your essays online no later than May 28 at 11:50 PM ET.
