BOO NAPPY (exclamation point)
Sara Harper Alyssa Brannon
Period 6 "I am sometimes a fox and sometimes a lion. The whole secret of government lies in knowing when to be the one or the other."
-Napoleon Bonaparte
Assertion 1.This picture is descriptive; it tells you what people thought did happen. Napoleon is on a rearing horse and he is pointing, which most likely signifies that he is about to go into battle.
2.This picture has a little of both ideology and behavior. While is shows that Napoleon’s behavior was violent and harsh it also show that he was strategically thinking about how to defeat the enemy.
3.This picture tells you about the beliefs and actions of the elite. Napoleon was the “emperor” of France. This painting is from the perspective of the painter; he is showing you that he thinks Napoleon will probably win the war or battle and that he is intimidating.
4.With this source you can answer questions like: how do you think Napoleon felt about this battle? Or why do you believe the horse was painted rearing up? The benefits of this source are that you can interpret how Napoleon was viewed through the eyes of the public.
5.This source is a painting therefore you have hard evidence of where, when, why, or how.
6.I think my analysis would fit in quite nicely with that of other historians, Napoleon was often going to war and was intimidating to people. This source would probably support their argument that Napoleon was always fighting.
Bonaparte visiting the plague victims of Jaffa 1799 The First Consul crossing the Alps at the Grand-Saint-Bernard pass 1.This painting is descriptive, showing what people thought happened. Napoleon had this painting created to explain what had happened during the Syrian campaign.
2.It describes both ideology as well as behavior. This painting is an example of the multiple times Napoleon used propaganda to convince a large number of people that a certain event or happening was true. The image paints him in a god-like fashion, showing him touching the people sick with the Black Plague as if he has no regard for catching the disease whatsoever.
3.It describes the beliefs of the elite- more specifically Napoleon Bonaparte’s actions which were intended to cause the French to believe the things the painting portrayed. The source is from Napoleon’s point of view because he had this painting commissioned.
4.You can answer questions on the Syrian campaign, examples of Napoleon’s propaganda, and even examples of leaders portraying themselves as a link between god and man.
5.You cannot, however, answer any questions on the actual events that took place, when and why they took place, or Napoleon’s motivations for using this propaganda, since the painting is completely up for interpretation of the viewer.
6.I think my analysis would fit with another historian’s well, since there is not much left to debate. You can prove what actually happened during the Syrian campaign, so it is obvious that this was a type of propaganda used. I think my analysis would support their argument.
Battle of Austerlitz 1805 1.This painting was descriptive, depicting what people believed did happen. The painting is of an actual battle that took place.
2.It does not necessarily describe ideology, but it does describe behavior. Napoleon is again depicted as a powerful appearance amidst a raging battle, as though a sign of almost inhuman tranquility. This is often how Napoleon was depicted in scenes of battles.
3.It shows the actions of the elite people, seeing as the painting was depicting Napoleon and the French army during the Grande Armée's most famous exploit. It shows their battle from the perspective of the painter, but judging by the way Napoleon is represented, he most likely had a hand in the image.
4.You can answer questions on propaganda used by Napoleon, as well as Napoleon’s depiction of himself during war and battle scenes.
5.You cannot answer questions using this source on the battle itself, such as who was fighting, why they were fighting, when it was, and how the battle ended, because it is a painting, which is mostly to give a visual of the battle.
6.My analysis may fit their analysis, although they will most likely have more insight into the battle and what the painting means. It is very chaotic and hard to completely interpret. I think my analysis would support their argument.
1. This source is prescriptive, telling you what people thought should happen. It shows Napoleon on a blooded horse in fine clothes burning fields of crops and killing peasants.
2. I think it describes behavior, Napoleon is being cruel to the people. He is killing people and burning their homes and crops.
3. This painting shows you the actions and belies of both the elite and the ordinary person. Napoleon and his men are killing peasants and burning their crops and houses. I think its from the perspective of a peasant, it depicts Napoleon as a cruel, heartless killer.
4. You could answer questions about how Napoleon treated the common people, and how the peasants felt about Napoleon. The benefits of a source like this is that you can see how the people felt and what Napoleon was really like.
5. This source couldn’t help you answer questions about when, where, why, and how, because it’s a painting. The limitations are you don’t have anything but the painting to analyze and there are no dates or anything of that nature.
6. I think my analysis would be pretty close to another historian’s analysis. I think this source supports the fact that Napoleon was mean and cruel.
1. This particular source is descriptive, it show what Napoleon looked like and how he presented himself.
2. I believe it describes ideology and behavior, it looks as if Napoleon had a air of confidence and wanted people to respect and fear him.
3. It depicts the actions of the elite, Napoleon was a very rich guy. I believe this painting is from the perspective of Napoleon himself, I think he instructed the painter to paint him a certain way.
4. You could answer questions about how Napoleon wanted people to see him. The limitations are it’s a portrait, so you really can’t get much information from it.
5. This source couldn’t answer questions about what Napoleons rule was like or how he came to be Emperor of France.
6. I think my interpretation of this source would most likely fit in well with any historian’s evaluation. In my opinion this portrait supports their argument.
