Sophomores:  Here are the two paintings we looked at in class today.  While this post is optional, we’d all love to read what each other wrote in class.  Remember to note which painting you had in mind.
Also, keep in mind that this writing exercise was intended to help us think more about the mother in “I Stand Here Ironing.”  What would it be like to stand in her shoes?
(The required assignment called “Three Great Videos” is below this one.) 

Edgar Degas, c. 1885 (1834-1917)

 

Pablo Picasso, 1901 (1881-1973)
