KNOW the art on these pages in your book:
351,353,357,428,429,430, 435, 445,448, poem - 466, 488,489,492,495, 501,508,510, (environmental)555 - not on test but a Duane Hanson sculture....

You only have 13 pictures to i.d. but some info from a few of these.....only what was covered in class.
Conclusion:  Some years are "difficult - full of rebellion and action"(Romantic) but others are beautiful - peaceful (inpressionism).  There is the continuous "Romantic/Classical Swing"....just like in our days.
This variety gives us MOTION.  Moral of our study this term:       Never be stagnant! You will rot!
