Lesson Plan

Celebrity's Picture: Using Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Portraits to Observe Historic Changes

Grade Level: 3-12 Content Area: Social Studies, Visual & Performing Arts
Here students will contrast original 2-D images (paintings, drawings, photos, cut silhouettes) with their commercially replicated print versions (engravings, lithographs, inked silhouettes), with special attention to artists' interpretations of the poet's personality. They will also examine the famous man's aging process and biography through his changing appearance , observe changes in the technology of producing nineteenth century portraits demonstrated in commercial printmaking and photography, and link them to changing cultural mores, and identify some of the more or less obscure artists trying to earn a living through portraiture in New England during Longfellow's lifetime.
