Marshall's picture is a positive depiction of an African American event at an African American club. Clearly Marshall likes the African American culture depicted in this work. I am not sure what you mean by saying that Marshall does not like mainstream ideology. That depends on what you mean by mainstream ideology. If 'mainstream ideology' tells us that African American culture is inferior, then yes the painting is a protest against that mainstream ideology. If mainstream ideology is a positive attitude to alternative events, without claiming that those events are superior or inferior, then Marshall's painting tells us nothing about those alternative events. This paper topic concerns political content. So it is probably more interesting here to say that Marshall protests against a sort of 'mainstream ideology' that had seen black culture as inferior. But be careful to avoid saying that all majority or mainstream attitudes denigrate black culture. Terminology: you may refer to 'black culture' or to 'African American culture." But avoid the phrase 'dark skin people,' which sounds racist to a modern American ear. Expanding on your remark, I note that both the Marshall and the Golub can be interpreted as exhibiting a cultural identity. So the Marshall refers to celebratory parties, here in the context of African American culture. And the Golub comments on war and fights in the context of European culture traced to Greek culture. You suggested that the Marshall shows a positive alternative to a parallel 'mainstream' culture. The Golub seems to be a rejection of a fighting culture that is presented positively in classical (that is Greek and Roman) western culture. You can draw these two points together. The paper topic asks you to discuss all this in the context of the readings. Well Herbert Read says that revolutionary art must be a revolutionary style of painting. That radical style is as important as radical content. Well what do you think. Is Marshall's style radical? What do you think of the odd lighting and simplified figures and lack of central form? And is the Golub style radical? What do you think of the dry and partly erased pigmentation? Are these revolutionary paintings in style as well as in content? From the point of view of Weiner, these are probably rather traditional. Do you see why? Text: Art in Theory 1900-2000, ed C. Harrison & P. Wood ...

Art entails various genres that play an important role in society. Art that is basically
known as the application or expression of the human imagination and creative skills has a long
history even before the Renaissance period. It has played a great role in society over the decades.
When these creative skills are represented in different visual forms such as painting and
sculpture among others, they have the power to educate, entertain and perform more other
functions intended by the artists. Throughout history, art has gone through a number of periodic
changes. In most cases, this has been referred to like the artistic revolutions. Movements have
always come and gone while being replaced by other new movements in different striking ways.
Herbert Marcus who rose to be the most influential theorist was able to explicate counter-culture
to other intellectuals through art (Kozloff, 2015). At one, a point he even argued that art housed
an exiled divine spark. Since then,...
