La dame au gant by Carolus Duran
The Young Girl and Death by Marianne Stokes瑪麗安·斯托克斯。 這幅畫給我的印象最深。它描繪一位少女麵對死亡天使時的恐懼。為什麽少女用手拉扯床單？ 應該是死神帶來的毛骨聳然的冷酷感。死亡天使來自黑暗之處，故行走需要借助燈光的照明。那黑色的長袍和又黑又大的翅膀，給人陰森鬼怪的感覺。

Thoma was one of Germany's outstanding painters in the late 19th
century. Trained in Karlsruhe and Düsseldorf in the 1860s, he met
Gustave Courbet during a long stay in Paris and was deeply influenced by
him. Dividing his career between Munich, Frankfurt and Florence, he was
one of the "German Romans" who found in the observation of Renaissance
art a means of contemporary expression which played a major role in the
genesis of European symbolism at the end of the century.
Reminiscences of Italy, as found in the tradition of classical landscapes initiated by Poussin, are particularly obvious in this painting. Close to Arnold Böcklin's dreamy pantheism, Thoma is nonetheless conspicuously different from the Swiss artist in his preference for prosaic country scenes over mythology. In its lyricism, Rest forges a link with the many peasant scenes that Thoma had already painted.

Olympia is an oil on canvas painting by Édouard Manet that caused shock and astonishment when it was first exhibited at the 1865 Paris Salon. Painted in 1863, it measures 130.5 by 190 centimetres (51 x 74.8 in). The nation of France acquired the painting in 1890 with a public subscription organized by Claude Monet. It is now in the Musée d'Orsay, Paris.
What shocked contemporary audiences was not Olympia's nudity, nor even the presence of her fully clothed maid, but her confrontational gaze and a number of details identifying her as a demi-mondaine or prostitute. These include the orchid in her hair, her bracelet, pearl earrings and the oriental shawl on which she lies, symbols of wealth and sensuality. The black ribbon around her neck, in stark contrast with her pale flesh, and her cast-off slipper underline the voluptuous atmosphere. "Olympia" was a name associated with prostitutes in 1860s Paris.
Manet was Gonzales's teacher and hence slight influence can be seen
especially the woman holds a strong resemblance to manet's Bar at the
folies bergere. The strong contrast in the light skin tone of the woman
and the dark background together with the suit of the man, this makes
the woman the focal point.
