art help needed

posted by .

The last major painting of Manet's career, A Bar at the Folies-Bergere, reflects the artist's:
optimism
pessimism
intense emotion
positivism
I see it was expressionism, but which of the answers given is a term related to that? i think it is positivism?

Goya who "did not share the Enlightenment faith in the ultimate rationality and goodness of humanity," was a painter of:
non-objective painting
despair
peaceful landscapes
genre still-life

he painted of killing and sorrow, so the best answer would be despair

Honore Daumier's art expressed sympathy for what class of people:
aristocracy
working class
farmers
criminals

it shows many paintings of regular people, and a few of working farmers. but im not sure if it is farmers or working class?

Corot painted only in his studio using professional models for his subjects.
True
False
I cannot find if this is true or not, i am thinking not, but cannot find proof?

    You're probably right. I don't see anything of the other three choices in that painting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Bar_at_the_Folies-Berg%C3%A8re

    Probably working class: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&as_qdr=all&q=Honore+Daumier%27s+art&btnG=Search

    I think it's false, too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Baptiste_Camille_Corot#The_art_of_Corot This article refers to a change during his lifetime: "...from the plein-air paintings of his youth, shot through with warm natural light, to the studio-created landscapes of his late maturity..."

    The bar: I agree expressionism, but then pessimism follows as the adjunct...beneath the glitter, a double meaning.

    despair is an understatement.

    Working class....common people would have been a better answer.

    Corot was noted for the reality of his outdoor scenes. He did not use models for this.

    1. I'd have to agree with you, because nothing else really fits.

    2. Best known for his "Black Paintings" so I'd agree here as well.

    3. This painter did caricatures of political figures, so which class were they apt to be in?

    4. If you mean Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, he was known for his landscapes. Therefore, you'd have to say "no."

    Tricky questions I must say!
