Writing an exhibition review
analysis
The impressionist painter Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was a character of intriguing contradictions. The daughter of a wealthy Philadelphia banker, she led a social life of impeccable gentility, but as an artist in Paris in the late 1870s, she fell in with a disreputable gang of outsiders; the officially denigrated Impressionists.While she worked on the cutting edge of avante-garde style, she made no overtly challenging images. Over and over she depicted women like herself engaged in polite social or domestic activities or tending their children (though she never married or had children). Her fiercely precise and intelligent art acquired an undeserved reputation for saccharine softness.

Tone
Native curios were privileged in bourgeois decoration as metonymic representations of the pre-modern, their significations enhanced by handmade production and utilitarian function, two aspects of the pre-modern also valorised in the contemporary American Arts and Crafts movements
.
We forget how tough it was to make a living out of sculpture in this period. Rare were supportive critics, dealers and patrons.
Much attention has been given in the literature
(1)to the two films on which Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel collaborated at the beginning of their respective careers, Un Chien Andalou and L’Age d’or.
The bulk of this literature has been
(2) concerned with examining the two films as part of Bunuel’s oeuvre, giving little more than lip service to any contributions that may have been made by Dali.
Both A and Z agree that….
Two post-modernist writers….

Or

The small room is painted a warm, rich red.

The claustrophobic room is painted a flat, dull red
Van Gogh painted the walls of the night cafe blood red. This disturbing colour, applied in thick swirling brushstrokes, conveys an unsettling sense of latent violence.

Integrating quotes
Benjamin seemed to be motivated by fear that the new technologies would diminish the validity of classical art. “Benjamin proclaims the death of art while quietly, insistently but scandalously celebrating the new domain of mass culture that has grown out of the process of industrialisation.” (Peim, 2007) He viewed this embryonic medium of film as dehumanising the artistic process that presented a science rather than an art using the metaphor of the magician symbolising the artist whilst the surgeon symbolises the scientist
A concept resonating through the work, and in turn,
something that drives
the essay, is the discussion of the sense of authenticity, and “aura” that belongs to an artwork.
