Since a certain few have narrated much of the history of art, the voice of the other is open to constructs that often misrepresent the oppressed. When the oppressed are deprived of their identity us, a character is assigned to them that defines us for centuries. The result is a generalized negative stereotype that persists through time to describe entire groups of people, rather than seeing people as individuals.

Art is continuously evolving. Art movements often reflect what society is underdoing during its creation. Impressionism is often considered the first modern movement in painting. Impressionism was developed in Paris in the 1860s originating from artists who were rejected from the official, government sponsored exhibition called the Salon. Artists from the Impressionism movement are known as the Impressionists.
Their character was very antagonistic and a big personality that the artist had would elevate their work. There work was very different because of the time they lived in and had different personal experiences. But were also similar because they try to convey their personal experience and social ideas. The art they create would influence the art movements and modern art. Both artist added more to the definition of modern art as the definition of modern art changes by art movements and the art they created added to the change of the definition of modern

Barry Lewis states that “The postmodernist writer distrusts the wholeness and completion associated with traditional stories, and prefers to deal with other ways of structuring narrative.” (Stuart Sim (ed.) 2001: 127). In this essay, I shall attempt to show how the ‘wholeness and completion’ of the conventional Victorian novel is disrupted over the narrative of Fowles’s The French Lieutenant’s Woman by drawing a number of examples out of the numerous that can be traced in the novel. The first distinct element that the reader notices in the narrative is the use of quotation references preceding the beginning of each chapter.
The European have broken the Igbo society into two. As a whole, this passage is about how the difference in tradition between the Europeans and the people of Umuofia led to a torn society. Chinua Achebe strengthened his claims of the important themes of the inability to communicate, which led to the state of depression, and eventually resulted to the Igbo society being torn apart, through the use of rhetorical questions, careful word choice, and symbolism. From this, he is able to grasp the reader’s attention, educating them about the Nigerian society’s disputes through its history of European colonization, which carry
This stems from the duality between “the cult of beauty and the self […] [and] the expression of profound pessimism, a tendency to focus on the imagery of doom, decay, and a society in decline”15 which prevailed in the last decades of the nineteenth century. The label “Decadence” has been, sometimes falsely, attributed to many works produced in the last decade of the nineteenth century. It is indeed a term that had been coined by the public of the time to label the works which shocked them, or as Dowling puts it, works with “sensational or lurid overtones. ”16
In appearance German shepherds and Persian cats have many distinctive differences. Persians cats are usually small animals and they also bathe themselves, and always avoid dirty situations.

This holds true still to this day, the only difference being that modern society 's socially acceptable boundary has been heaved forward new artists that were and continue to push the line. Two modern artists that are considered insane but definitely pushed the boundary are Frank Zappa, Miley Cyrus and Eminem.
Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art. Stanton Macdonald-Wright applied thin layers of dry paint in wide strokes on the canvas to create flat surfaces of color. In some regions, the painter uses the technique of drybrush to create a scratchy texture that let the under layer of white paint to show through. This created the transition from dark and intense hues to lighter shades of that hue, giving the colors a transparent quality. Although chiaroscuro modeling is not used,
