Can someone please help me find some information on this sculputre: A Young Woman of Trastévère, by Charles Cordier
I have to write a few pages about it, but I can't find much about this piece online. Google isn't giving many results either.
Please help me!
I didn't find anything either -- even at Google Scholar.
However, it's on exhibit in Atlanta until May 1. I suggest you visit this museum, see what information it has, and write your own description of this statue.

You could also research the life of Cordier.
I got the sculptor off of that website, but even there they didn't have any information except the basics. I researched the life of Cordier too, and they don't have much on that nor do they mention this piece.
...I guess I'll have to write my own description, but I don't think I know much about this
You'll know more when you see it in person. Take the information you've learned in this class and apply this knowledge to the actual sculpture. Let the beauty of this woman seep into you. Study the sculptor's technique and how he created this statue.
Ms. Sue is right. What you write needs to be about what you SEE, what you THINK, what you FEEL when you look at the sculpture. You can't get that off of any website. It must come from inside YOU.
Take a look at Standard 2, Objective 2b here: http://www.uen.org/cc/uen/core/pub/displayCoreCourse.action?ccId=1230
Here's a little more information.
But, Y, nothing will substitute for you seeing this sculpture yourself. Art is meant to be viewed and enjoyed in person. No descriptions can substitute for a personal experience.
I'm not a great art lover, but I still treasure the great sculptures I've seen in Florence, Rome, and Paris.
