Classicism and Romanticism
Self-Portraiture
Los Caprichos
He looks disdainful
looking sideways at the audience- possibly looking in the mirror while doing the piece
Disdainful at the evil of the world
part of a series of etchings that show what happens when chaos takes over the world
He has a critical attitude towards what hes depicting
The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters
Goya bent over the desk plagued by his demons- not showing his face
cowering in fear from his demons
the sleep of reason produces monsters
surrealist depiction of his nightmares
depiction of his dreams
He was perpetrator of the Spanish Enlightenment and extremely logical
This is what happens when reason loses its hold on the world
The Scream Edvard Munch (1893)
Inspired by a sound that made it seem as though both everything and nothing was
experienced at the same time- Munch saw this at twilight
He was exploring this extreme state not in a critical point of view like Goya, but rather hes not
placing value on his experience of irrationality- a confessional painting
Van Gogh Self Portrait With Bandaged Ear (1889)
Van Gogh lived with Gaugin
Gaugin may have cut his ear off as they were constantly fighting
BUT Gaugin said that Van Gogh was following him with an open razor and then he cut off the
lower half of his ear and sent it to a prostitute in a local brothel
Result of a nervous breakdown, experience of extremity represented through self portraiture
He looks resilient, and is backed by soldiers in a painting in the background
Disassociated- his red hair is missing, hes covering himself up with bulky coat- his eyes are
vacant and his skin is sallow
He looks damaged both physically and mentally
Strokes have much more restraint and less movement than his earlier work
Can be juxtaposed with Munch as there is more restraint and his emotions are trapped within
himself and he is trapped inside- unlike munch who is letting everything out in the freedom of
the outdoors- Munch also applies more movement to his paint strokes that amplify his
freedom
Portraiture
The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries- Jacques Louis David
(1812)
Less idealistic
Royal-style Portrait
Early morning study
balding with a dad-bod
The Head of Napoleon Surrounded by a Laurel Wreath in a Sunburst
(before 1835)
Associates him with the sun king
