1) DISCUSSION POST
CHECKING OUT TCHAIKOVSKY; THE ART OF WOMEN IN THE 1800s
TOPIC: This week’s topics relate to subjects covered in chapters 31 and 32. Choose one topic. Please respond to one of the following, using the class text and sources under the Explore heading as the basis of your response:
- TOPIC OPTION ONE: 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.
- TOPIC OPTION TWO: 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.

- 2) PEER REVIEW
- Good Afternoon class and professors: The composition that I selected by Tchaikovsky is “waltz of the flowers”. I enjoyed waltz of the flowers because while listening it took me to a place of peace, a place of happiness. It took me back to moments in my life such as cartoons on a Saturday morning at my grandmothers house, My high school graduation, my wedding day and the birth of my first child. An example of todays music that I think can be used is anything that brings unity with a country, group etc. I choose to use songs written by irving berling “God bless America” and Lee greenwood “god bless the USA”.
- 3) PEER REVIEW
- Hello Professor and classmates,I choose topic two: I chose Dancers Backstage by Edgar Degas 1876/1883 and The Harbor at Lorient by Berthe Morisot 1869.They are both beautiful works of art. Morisot’s work with the barely drawn lines portrays women as classy, proper, well-dressed upper class. While Degas’s work shows hard working full time child workers from lower class families. They both have beautiful colors but they are a little different also. For me, Morisot’s work was a little confusing because you couldn’t see where one part ended and the other began. It was like all bunched up together. I didn’t particularly care for that but it is still a great piece of artwork.I really love the painting Lady in Red 34 by Emerico Imre Toth. It is absolutely stunning. It says that she is daring and not afraid to show off some skin, she is sophisticated and absolutely radiant. I would to have this hanging in my house. It is just a beautiful piece of artwork.
