Freeze-Frame
• Without actually making any noise and
remaining seated pupils freeze-frame
being frightened/worried.
• Analyse each other’s body language.
Critical Analysis
• We are going to analyse a famous painting.
How does the artist create an unsettling
atmosphere?
Consider:
• Facial Expression
• Gesture
• Use of light and colour
• Composition: position of things in the
picture and background
Self-portrait
(The Desperate Man),
Gustave Courbet was a famous French painter in the nineteenthcentury. He was a realist painter and he painted lots of selfportraits. Courbet occupies an important place in 19th century
French painting as an innovator. He put so much of himself onto
the canvas.
In one self-portrait, he is long-haired and delicate. In another, he
tears his hair, wide-eyed and wild, like Johnny Depp’s pirate . In
“Self-Portrait with Pipe” we see him as a thoughtful dreamer.
Empathy
• Empathy is the ability to identify with a
place or person
• You are going to use the painting as
the basis for a piece of empathy
writing.
• Look at the painting again and
consider the accompanying questions.
• Use the First Person (I, my. ..)
Task-You now need to write as if you
are the man in the picture.......
How are you
feeling? Why?
What is your state of
mind?
Where have you
been?
What happened?
What can you hear?
How does that make
you feel?
Plenary
