Today, in our lesson of Social Sciences, we've done many things:
-Firstly, Paqui has shown us the Art Project of the 18th and 19th Centuries that Dani Carmona, a partner from 1st of Bachillerato, made last year. On the project, he talked about Imperialism and Historicism. Also, Paqui has explained us how he made it: he made the project with a croma, a green background and then he put images of the paintings behind him. She has told us that doing it isn't difficult. I wanted to include the video but I can't find his channel on YouTube :(
-After this, Paqui has shown us different examples of Travel Journals, which is what we have to do for our projects of Art of the 18th & 19th Centuries. I think it's original and an interesting way of developing our creativity. There are some very original projects, and more or less I have an idea of how mine is going to be.
-Later we have talked about Goya: Paqui has explained us, with a presentation that he was a painter
between two periods: he was between Classicism and Modernity. He was born in Fuendetodos, Zaragoza in 1746. He moved to Madrid in 1775 and started working for the Royal Tapestry Factory. His style was luminous and colorist. In this same year, he became court painter. In 1792 he suffered a serious illness and became deaf. The deafness completely changed his personality: his painting turned more critical. He painted a series of Etchings that included Fantasies and Bullfighting. When Ferdinand VII came back, his ideas about Joseph I put him in trouble. He lost his job and became isolated. He painted the Black Paintings on the walls of his house. In 1823 he exiled to France and died there in 1828.
Here are some famous paintings by Goya:
THE NAKED MAJA
SATURN DEVOURING HIS SON
