Product Description
This standards based produce contains the 20th century Art Deco painting "Portrait of Doctor Boucard" by Tamara Lempicka and a 19th century Romantic painting. Both paintings have an explanatory caption that places them in historical and genre context.

A note taking chart encourages students to "close read" the images and see similarities and differences in composition, symbolism, characterization, and theme.

An expository writing prompt asks students to consider how Tamara Lempicka may have transformed inspiration gleaned from the 19th century painting into her portrait.

This activity can be used as a lead in to standard: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.9
Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare) as it gives students practice in explaining how one artistic product can inspire another.
