It was incredible.” Right then and there I had my suspicions that this here feline might just be a Milkoholic. “So Cat, do you often have drinks with Mister Cow?” “When I could afford it, but now, we drink and watch TV every day,” he said with a burp. “Thank you for your time.” “No
He describes the experience as “He transforms personal events (including an inebriated, humiliating impromptu performance of his song ‘Dog’ at a tea party given by a famous Hollywood couple” (Bloom). A writer named Dwight Taylor went through this experience with Fitzgerald. “He and Fitzgerald were invited to a party given by Irving Thalberg and Norma Shearer. The only two writers invited, both were determined to keep Fitzgerald sober and not damage his already fragile reputation. Fitzgerald got drunk, insulted Robert Montgomery” (Eble 126).
Evan Oblak Kochanski Honors English 10 3 December 2015 Be Careful What You Wish For Not all stories have a moral, but this one from ancient Greece certainly does. Herous has a gift – everything he touches turns to chocolate. But he soon learns that an excessive love of riches squeezes the truly valuable things out of life. The story begins with Disgustingos, a satyr, half man, half goat, who follows Tupacus the god of Hip-Hop. There was once a dreadfully ugly beast called Disgustingos.
He started studying engineering in 1879 at the age of 22, but left one year later to become an artist, his true passion. He painted his first major painting called “The sick child” in 1885. Munch was a pioneer of expressionist art, but he also painted naturalism and symbolism. Definitely his most famous painting is “The Scream” which was painted in 1893, and sold later in 2012 for more than $119.9 million. Munch died in Norway in 1944 and in his will, he left all his artwork that was in his own possession to Oslo municipality.
He was introduced by his brother, Andrea to the ancient civilization, and studied architecture tutored by his uncle. In 1740, he went to Rome and studied alongside with some of the best printmakers, and remained in the city of the Seven Hills for the rest of his life. During that time, he had developed etching techniques, under Giuseppe Vasi’s instructions, which creates rich contrasts between light and dark by engraved copperplates and soaked them in strong acid to remove the excess parts, resulted with etched
Firstly, according to Gabrielle’s text in History of German Literature, Ode is under a carol structure, which was very popular among poets at that time. And the theme of joy and brotherhood was derived from ancient Greek poets. This also corresponds with the fact that Schiller was fascinated by ancient literature after a visit to an antique collection in Mannheim. He said to his friends in a letter, “…I have decided that during the next two years I won’t read any more modem authors…”
The next and last time Pitty Sing was relevant to the story was a key part, near the end, when he caused the car to flip over. Pluto was the main cat until the midpoint of the story. Poe’s character in the beginning expresses his love for animals, but tells us he has a special place in his heart for Pluto. As his owner slowly swirls down into rage and sorrow he still holds
Anacreon With Infants Bacchus and Cupid by Jean Leon Gerome was modeled in 1879 and cast in bronze in 1893. The artist started this subject as a painting about a poem that was written by the fifth century Greek poet Anacreon who received a visit from Bacchus, god of wine, and Cupid, god of love, in his house. At a later date he returned to the subject but instead of a painting he made it into a full scale marble piece that was later cast into a smaller two foot bronze cast that is at the Art Institute of Chicago, and was made into copies because the composition proved to be popular enough. The sculpture itself does have a very strong composition, including balance, light and the detail on the figures themselves. With it being only a couple hundred years old the statue does not have any missing parts and everything is intact from what is immediately visible to the eye of the viewer, the original marble (which I have not had the pleasure of viewing) may have intricate pieces missing,.
The identity of the sitter is unknown adding to the mystery behind the Mona Lisa. Many assumptions have been made of her identity: his assistant The Mona Lisa hangs in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France where it gets millions of viewers. Da Vinci left Italy and moved to France in 1516 because, “French ruler Francis I generously offered him the title of “Premier Painter and Engineer and Architect to the King,” which gave him the opportunity to paint and draw at his leisure while living in a country manor house.” At the age of 67, Leonardo da Vinci died on May 2, 1519 at Cloux; he continued with his studies until his death. (history.com). The site of his burial was destroyed by the French Revolution, so Da Vinci’s gravesite cannot be found to this
One example of this is Gatsby and his crazy parties. In The Great Gatsby, Gatsby throws a lot of crazy parties with lavish decor, food, drinks, and rich people. At the beginning of chapter three the narrator or Nick, describes these parties and notes, “ There was music from my neighbor’s house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whispering and the champagne and the stars… On week-ends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight... Every friday five crates of oranges and lemons arrived from a fruiterer in New York…” (Fitzgerald 39). This is meaningful because it shows the isolation of the Jazz Age by painting a lavish picture even though dark things were happening such as Tom's affair and the eventual murder of Gatsby by George Wilson.

Referred to as “the best representative of the Mexican sculptural movement at the time” by Diego Rivera, I chose to do my research on Guatemalan painter and sculptor Rafael Yela Günther. I am attracted to his work because long before I knew who he was I saw some of his sculptures personally in Guatemala and I was truly impressed. Naturally my interest to know more about his artwork grew when I learned that Rivera had some influence on him during their time working together in Teotihuacan. Rafael Yela Günther was born on September 18, 1888 in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Günther’s first mentor in creating sculptures was his father, Baldomero Yela Montenegro; he was a sculptor and marble-carver.
Morse, a professor of art, painting, and design at New York University. Through Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, Brady was tutored in the newly developed technology of daguerreotype, the process of creating a mirror image on a silver-surfaced copper plate. In 1862 Brady shocked the nation when he displayed the first photographs of the carnage of the war in his New York Studio in an exhibit entitled "The Dead of Antietam." These images, photographed by Alexander Gardner and James F. Gibson, were the first to picture a battlefield before the dead had been removed and the first to be distributed to a mass public. These images received more media attention at the time of the war than any other series of images during the rest of the war A New York Times article in October, 1862, illustrates the impression these images left upon American culture stating, "Mr. Brady has done something to bring home to us the terrible reality and earnestness of war.
Along with various components, ancient festival’s helps ignite spiritual possession; in particular, through the sexual cults of Dionysus/Bacchus, persisting of mysterious origins. Although ‘phallic worship’ happens in earlier cultures, it excels into open celebrations in early Greece. Accordingly, the god Dionysus became the grand patron of the phallus, glorifying it during festive processions; which in everyday society all its citizens celebrate this object in broad daylight. Specifically, the worship of the phallus occurs as the central theme and its image paraded around during the celebration with Pan conducing the march often times. During the procession, the deafening sounds of drums, flutes, and cymbals plays forcefully during the
Number Two: He Fights Type Casting A year after the man 's success playing the famous cannibal, he purposely chose to play Professor Van Helsing in the 1992 production of Dracula since it was so different than the other role. He did this in order to fight being type casting. Number One: He Began Acting for a Girl In an interview, Anthony Hopkins has stated that one of the reasons why he decided to act was so that he could meet a certain actress. Claire Bloom was this actress, who is most known for her work in the production of 1952 production of Limelight. Anthony Hopkins is certainly an extraordinary man.
