Inthe book, Goerges Braque, the authors succeed in explaining the lifeof Goerges Braque. Georges Braque was a French painter in the 20thcentury. He invented Cubism, and that is why he is best known.Together with Cubism, he also used Collage, Fauvism, andImpressionism. He also managed to stage the Ballet Russes. It isthrough his career that he managed to change his style with the aimof portraying subjects that are somber during the times of war. Hedid not move away from Cubism since all his works always had aspectsof Cubism.

On13thMay 1882 the French painter, Georges Braque was born in France`sArgenteuil. His childhood was spent in Le Havre, and he always hopedto be like his grandfather and father by being a house painter justlike them. In the evenings, he studied painting in the Écoledes Beaux-Arts between the years 1897 and 1899. Since he wanted tofurther pursue artistic painting, he relocated to Paris, where hemanaged to apprentice as a decorator master before he painted theAcademie Humbert between the years 1902 and 1904. The book statesthat Braque’s career was started using the Impressionistic style ofpainting. He managed to change to a Fauvist style of painting afterhe had viewed the works that the Fauves had exhibited. The style ofthe Fauves had bold colors and had a form of structure that was loosewith the aim of emulating deep emotions.

Thefirst solo shows that Braque had happened Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler`sgallery in the year 1908. Braque collaborated with Pablo Picasso, hisfellow artist, between the years 1909 and 1914. They collaboratedwith the aim of coming up with Cubism and also incorporating theelements of Collage to the pieces that they had. After the 1stWorld War, the style used by Braque was changed. That is because hisart had become less planned and structured as well. In the year 1922,he was able to have an exhibition that was successful and it helpedin garnering him a lot of acclaims. By the time the 1920`s werecoming to an end, Braque had changed his style, and he began paintingnature interpretations that were more realistic. However, he nevergave up Cubism.

AdvertisementAnalysis

&quotTheAre You Man Enough to be a Nurse&quot is an advertisement that isall about gender roles and the roles that should be undertaken bymen. It is an advertisement that shows off the men that are in theprofession of nursing. In the ad, some men who are in differentprofessions are featured. The ad shows that men are also in thenursing profession. Some male nurses have also been featured in thead, and they are seen to be comfortable and proud of what they do.Thus, they are not lesser men compared to the other men who are inother professions. The ad tells a lot about America. That is becauseit tries to show how the country has developed thus some of thetraditional issued are no longer considered. A foreigner could thinkthat the United States has no traditions by seeing the advertisement.That is because most cultures still hold on their traditions, andthey still consider nursing to be a women`s profession. The socialissue that is evident in this ad is the gender roles. That is becausethe ad tries to show that genders should not be considered inprofessions since any gender is capable of fitting in any profession(Swann,Langlois and Gilbert 28).I agree with the ad since it completely shows how men are good enoughto be in the nursing profession just like women. Therefore, I tend tobelieve that the ad tries to challenge gender stereotypes and alsoencourage men to face their fears and join the nursing profession.

Pathoscan be seen in the advertisement. That is because the ad tries toshow that the men who are in the nursing profession should not bepitied. It shows that men should also be in the nursing profession.It tries to show that nursing is a profession that belongs to men andwomen thus the men that are in that profession are men enough sincethey are not afraid of being in a profession that is considered to befor women. Ethos can also be identified in this advertisement. Theadvertisement is stereotypical since it tries to show of the rolesthat should be undertaken by men and those that should be undertakenby men. The ad tries to challenge the gender stereotype regarding theroles that should be undertaken by men and those that should beundertaken by men. It shows that the men that are nurses are realmen. Today, the nursing profession has a lot of men. However,traditionally, it is a role that was considered to be undertaken bywomen only. Men are compassionate and competent enough for them to bein this field. It is a field that requires special people. Therefore,the gender of the person is not relevant in this situation. The ad,therefore, proposes that real men should not be afraid to be in thisprofession despite the fact that it was traditionally dominated bywomen. The ad can be seen to be modern since it tries to show thatmen should also be in the nursing profession despite the genderstereotypes that are there.

Theadvertisement tries to encourage men to join the nursing profession.The nursing profession does not only require women. That is becausemen can also become nurses since they are competent enough. Theadvert also tries to show that nursing is a profession like no otherthus men can also feature in this profession. It tries to show thatnursing is not a simple profession as it has always been consideredto be. The ad shows that the nursing profession demands skills,courage, and intelligence. The ad also tries to show how the nursingprofession has a lot of unlimited opportunities to offer. It is,therefore, evident that the ad is trying to encourage a lot of men tojoin the nursing profession.

Itend to believe that the ad has been successful. That is because alot of men have flooded the nursing profession despite thestereotypes that were traditionally seen. Some men who belong todifferent professions have been featured in the advertisement. Thatshows that men can fit in any profession including nursing. Peoplehave always considered nursing to be a simple profession that doesnot require a lot of competence and intelligence. That is the reasonthey consider it to be a profession for the women since they considerwomen to be less intelligent. However, that is not the case. That isbecause the profession is very demanding, and it requires a lot ofintelligence and courage. Therefore, it is evident that men can alsofit in this profession. With compassion, it is very easy for men tobe in this profession. Therefore, the advert has succeeded since thegender stereotypes regarding the nursing profession are no longerconsidered, and a lot of men have become nurses and they are veryproud of what they do.
