This is the first volume in the Modern Art and Ideas series for educators, which explore the 1 history of modern art through The Museum of Modern Art’s rich collection. While tradi- A

tional art historical categories are the organizing principle of this series, these parameters are N O

used primarily as a means of exploring artistic developments and movements in conjunction T E

with their social and historical context, with attention to the contribution of specific artists. T O

The guide is informed by issues posed by the selected works in a variety of mediums (paint- E D

ing, , prints, , film, and and design), but its organization and U C A

lesson topics are tailored to the public school curriculum, with particular application to social T O

studies, visual art, history, and language . Lessons are accompanied by writing, research, R S and hands-on, art-based activities that encourage students to make connections between the and other disciplines. The goal of this guide is to introduce students to Post-Impressionism and Symbolism, two movements in modern Western , and to demonstrate to teachers the variety of ways that art can be used in the classroom. The guide’s purpose is not just to explicate works of art, but to how images and historical information can be integrated into numer- ous subject areas and skill bases taught in the classroom. The works featured in this guide span the years 1882 to 1900. Post-Impressionism is a term coined after the fact in 1910 to describe a group of artists working in a variety of styles after the Impressionists. Symbolism was, initially, a literary term adopted by artists to describe their interest in objectifying their subjective experiences. Students be introduced to significant ideas in art and culture from this period. By comparing a variety of mediums and artistic styles, students will be able to practice observation, articulation, and discussion skills, and to further develop their visual literacy. This guide has been written with the understanding that the history of modern art is not simply a progression of hermetic styles; rather, a complex matrix of intellectual, social, and historical factors have contributed to the creation of art. Modern art is not solely the product of artists who seek to overthrow convention at all cost. As Kirk Varnedoe suggested, it “has been the product of individual decisions to reconsider the complex possibilities within the traditions available to them, and to on basic options that were, and remain, broadly avail- able and unconcealed.”1 Indeed, a may be viewed as a locus that invites numer- ous approaches and offers multiple ways of understanding the historical moment in which it was made and the individual who created it.

The five lessons—Painting Modern Life, Rise of the Modern City, Portraiture, Popular Cul- 2 ture, and Landscape—that comprise this guide may be used sequentially or as independent U S

I units.An introduction to the key principles of each lesson is followed by a close examination N

G of each work, including formal analysis of the work, the work’s historical context, and T H biographical information on the artist. Discussion questions based on the information lead E

E students through formal analysis of the artwork and seek to create connections between D U

C information and visual evidence. The activity or project that concludes each lesson encour- A

T ages students to synthesize what they have learned about the works, and carries the lesson O

R into the broader curriculum or relates it to skills students are practicing in the classroom. S G U I

D Encourage dialogue and debate by asking your students to respond to each others’ observa- E tions and interpretations. Restating students’ responses, periodically reviewing students’ comments, and summarizing the discussion all help to validate students’ thoughts, focus the discussion, and generate additional ideas about the artwork

IMAGES All of the questions, discussions, and activities in this guide are based on the images on the accompanying slides and CD-ROM. Please examine the images carefully before showing them to your students. Your classroom should be equipped with a slide projector or com- puter and LCD projector.

ACTIVITIES The Activities sections are intended for students to make connections between their own experiences and the concepts presented in the lesson. Through these activities, students will begin to develop a language for discussing and looking at art. Please feel free to tailor the activities to the age level of your students.

RESEARCH PROJECTS In many cases, the materials in this guide will provide opportunities for in-depth research on specific artists or artistic movements. We have suggested some topics, to which we en- courage you to add your own. 3 USING THE EDUCATORS GUIDE historical terms (bolded upon first mention in each lesson) is included at is included lesson) in each (bolded mention upon first terms historical t ar f o y lossar g GLOSSARIES A The section “For Further Consideration” Further “For The section and re- additional questions discussion proposes projects.search teachers for section has also been provided and resources A bibliography research. use in conducting to and students further information on provide The resources the artists and artworks in this guide, topics, historical general activities. classroom and more ofthe end the guide.

INTRODUCTION The artists associated with the Impressionist movement chose to depict modern (meaning contemporary), everyday life over mythological, religious, or heroic subject matter. Post- Impressionist was a term assigned to a group of artists working after the Impressionists who wished not only to depict modern life, but also to its emotional and psychological effects. They achieved this in a variety of styles. The two art works in this lesson are distinc- tively modern but in very different ways. Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas’s At the Milliner’s focuses on a moment between two women in a hat shop, and with numerous details care- fully highlights the mundane activity of trying on the latest fashion in hats. The Bather, by Paul Cézanne, also captures a moment in time, depicting an adolescent boy about to take a step forward, but the painting includes no reference to late-nineteenth-century contemporary life and is quite traditional in its subject matter—a male figure in a landscape. Unlike tradi- tional painters, Cézanne did not use this unheroic body in its barren, ambiguous setting to tell a story; rather, this composition permitted him to explore new ways of painting.

LESSONS 10 • Divide the class into two teams. Ask one team to defend the position that Atget was a documentary photographer who was not interested in creating a photograph that would be considered a “work of art.” Ask the other team to defend the position that Atget was an artist who was using photography to capture many of the same ideas about that the class explored in the previous lesson. Have each team present their argument.

ACTIVITIES/PROJECTS Research the development of other transit systems, such as the underground and New York subway. How did these cities entice riders to use their systems?

Document an existing building or renovation site, or research the creation of a civic symbol 11 or landmark. What is the history of the building/site/landmark? Why was it created? What is L E its function? What does it commemorate? What was the public’s reaction to it when it was S S first completed? O N S Think about how a piece of sculpture or architecture can change the look of a neighborhood or even a city. If you wanted to design something to change the way your city looks, what would it be? Think about what you would make and why. Where would it be located in the city? Write a statement like Gustave Eiffel’s (p. 9), about your vision for your creation.

The Paris Métro improved life in the city by making transportation cleaner and faster. Think about ways in which you might improve your city or neighborhood. If you did create some- thing new, how would you entice people to use it? Design an advertising campaign for your new idea for improving life in your city or neighborhood.

LESSONS 18 INTRODUCTION Landscape was a popular subject for many artists throughout the nineteenth century. While interested in painting modern city life, a number of artists in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century were averse to the intense of modern society. For artists who wished to paint , the country—made more easily accessible by the new railroads—offered a retreat from growing industrialization.

LESSON OBJECTIVES • Students will become familiar with the term “landscape,” and will revisit the terms “foreground,” “middle ground” and “background.”

• Students will consider how an artist’s painting technique impacts a viewer’s interpretation 19 of a painting. L E S S O N IMAGE-BASED DISCUSSION S • Begin by showing your students Port-en-Bessin, Entrance to the Harbor. Ask them to take a moment to look at the image carefully. Ask the students to describe what is in the foreground, middle ground, and background.

• Inform your students that this is a landscape. Ask them to define “landscape,” or help them to define it based on what they see in this image. A landscape is an image that has natural scenery as its primary focus.

• Ask your students to write down five to ten words that describe this painting. (Emphasize to older students the use of adjectives as opposed to nouns.)

• Ask your students to choose their favorite words and share them with the class. Direct them to use visual evidence from the work to explain their word choices. Make a list of the words on the chalkboard or on chart paper.

Georges-Pierre Seurat, like Impressionist painters before him, was very interested in painting light, and studied optical theory to develop his painting technique, known as “pointillism,” or Neo-Impressionism (see Lesson Three, p. 14). Seurat created this image by carefully placing small dots of color side by side. When viewed up close, one is aware of the many small dots of varied color. When viewed from a distance, the dots fuse together to create the image. Neo-Impressionist artists believed that this painstaking method of painting was the most scientific and precise way to record color and light.

• Ask your students to look carefully at . How is it similar to Port-en-Bessin, Entrance to the Harbor ? How is it different?

• Ask your students why—based on the definition they came up with earlier—this painting is considered a landscape.

• Ask them to write down five to ten words that describe this painting. (Emphasize to older students the use of adjectives as opposed to nouns.)

• Ask the students to choose their favorite words and share them with the class. Ask them to use visual evidence from the work to explain their selection. . 4 . and con- to compare Ask them , Elderfield et al, John eds.York: (New The Port-en-Bessin, Entrance to the Harbor . a location and choose to ask them First III (New York: of(New The Museum Art, Modern 2004), 35. cityscape But the painting is more about real- then the painting is more But 3 . they different? they similar?
