List and describe 3 elements or principles of design (found in chapters 2-6 of your textbook and your vocabulary list) Courbet uses effectively in his painting, but that Matisse either intentionally ignores or breaks the rules of in order to achieve something new and modern. Both artists are using different techniques to create symbolism. What is one major symbol you can find that is present in BOTH paintings? How do the artists achieve this? Consider how this symbolic narrative is being shown to the audience in very different ways? Is one more effective than the other? Which do you prefer?
