Classroom Activity Idea
Select representative paintings from the three genres—figure, landscape, and still life—and from the styles of both Realism and Expressionism. To help them better understand the two styles, have students compare and contrast either in a written piece or an oral presentation. They should select their personal preferences and defend their choices.
