Question 31 / 1 ptsDr. Brekka explains that Turner's painting the Slave Ship makes a strong political statement in opposition of slavery; here, the artist serves as social commentator. This painting is organized compositionally like a traditional seascape, but hard to 'read' because of Turner's loose, painterly style.TRUE
FALSEQuestion 41 / 1 ptsAccording to the lectures for this module, Daumier's painting, the Third Class Carriage, features generations of a family displaced by the industrial revolution, and the figures are shown with dignity. The reason for this, Brekka explains, is that the poor become the focal point of social sympathy. Brekka compares the old woman to earlier depictions of St. Ann in religious art.
Question 51 / 1 ptsDr. Brekka describes Manet's painting Olympia as an Impressionist portrait of the mistress of the king of France; this work, which was widely praised by the academic artistic elite, served as Manet's 'entrance' piece to the French Royal Academy. Her posture and gaze reflect traditional gestures of submission to the dominant 'male gaze'.
