Unlike many of the expatriate artists of the time, Chase went to study in Munich instead of Paris, where he looked to the past for inspiration and “adopted the sturdy, direct brushwork, muddy palette, and realism influenced by Frans Hals and Diego Velázquez,” which became characteristic of his work. What is most obvious in Mrs. Chase in Prospect Park is this darker palette, for nearly the entire painting is composed of variations of brown and green, with black and white to break up the murky
These influences can be seen in Target as both these artists challenged what art was. Cage was well known for his 4’33” concert which is four minutes and thirty-three seconds of only the sounds in the environment. Cage does not touch the piano throughout this piece, so it challenges the very definition of what music is. On the other hand, Duchamp used ready-mades such as his famous “Fountain” and would put them on display as art. The idea that the art piece was just an ordinary object not even created by the artist was a direct challenge to the art world at the time.

Thesis work of art is an attempt to catch the chaos in the room after Jesus made the statement. Catherine Sundt makes the statement ,” The Last Supper and Handel’s Messiah are not Christian teachings, but rather art inspired by Christianity”(Sundt 77).
This work of art was also known as one of his famous 'drip paintings ' that he began to produce in the late 1940s represent one of the most original bodies of work of the century.

His understanding of nature profoundly differs from our own. Wright felt this strong connection to nature throughout his life, and Fallingwater presented him with a unique opportunity to showcase it unlike his previous houses. Designed for his elderly mother, Robert Venturi used the house – The Vanna Venturi - as a canvas to demonstrate some of the “complexities and contradictions” in modern architecture. With the Vanna Venturi house, his desire to challenge modern orthodoxy is apparent in the home’s façade, which acts as a sort of billboard for a house, with its pitched roofline and functionless arch – both clear departures from modernist principles. Inside, rather than providing the order and simplicity that the modernists worshipped, Venturi’s design chose to surprise people with its contradictions.
He raises the image to the mystery category making the audience create the picture of the past, present, and future. Granado’s music assists in creating an intimate linkage between the classic melody and the spirit of the local lands. Overall, the talent of the both masters is compared and considered irresistible as if they created the same work only in the different realm of art. Furthermore, Granado’s Goyescas was inspired by Albeniz’s motives, as well. The musician was thoroughly familiar with his style and used the same approaches to the

David Foster Wallace, author of “Ticket to the Fair,” grew up a couple of hours from down state Springfield but moved to the east coast is writing a articles on the Illinois state fair. As he goes through the days of the fair he realizes thing are different from the East Coast, and that the people are not what he expected. The way people treat David makes him act different toward people. “Lacking a real journalist’s killer instinct, I’ve been jostled way to the back, and my view is observed by the towering hair of Ms. Illinois country fair, whose function here is unclear.” David was a journalist and the people at the fair really didn’t treat David right.
