Trial Of Napoleon


Extra-Credit for Thanksgiving break. Go to the "Crossing the Channel: British and French Painting in the Age of Romanticism" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Choose four images and for each one: 1. take a picture of yourself in front of it, or if that is not possible, a picture of the painting alone will suffice, 2. Identify the artist, 3. describe what is happening in the painting, and 4. explain why you chose it, 5. identify the elements that make it Romantic. Finally, write a summary (at least three paragraphs)evaluating how these paintings have impacted your understanding of the economic, social, intellectual, or political transformations Europe was undergoing during this time. (worth 6 test points)
