The Declaration of Independence is a letter to King George III of Great Britain from the American Colonists who are upset of their poor treatment. The Colonists develop their claims by listing what the King has done unfairly, then explain their previous attempts to petition. Their Purpose is to separate the United Colonies from the British Crown in order to live a better life that is not dictated by one man. They establish the righteousness of their beliefs and their want to leave. The Colonists empathise pathos by repeating the same phrase “He is…”. The effect points out the wrong-doing that the King has done. In addition to pathos, logos is also used in paragraph 30, where they state “They are too deaf to hear the sounds of Justice and Consanguinity”
The beginning of the 16th century brought with it the Reformation. The Catholic Church became challenged by Martin Luther and John Calvin. With nailing of the 95 theses on the Church doors, Luther began the Protestant Reformation. The counter-reformation was introduced in Europe to weaken the Protestant Reformation and rebuild the power of the Catholic Church through education, clergy reform, and spreading of the Catholic faith. The counter-reformation can be additionally seen as a political movement because of the loss in revenue in the Baltic provinces. The Lutheranism in the area diverted funds from the Church because that religion didn’t for taxes to be paid to the pope. In order for the Roman Catholic Church to regain its power, the R.C.C.
A new divide in art and religion occurred during the 17th century. The Reformation occurred and caused a major divide between Protestants and Catholics. In northern Europe, Protestantism took root, especially in the city of Amsterdam. In southern Europe, Catholicism stood fast, especially in Rome. In this paper I will argue that Amsterdam and Rome developed unique political and religious environments that created two different painting styles within the Baroque period. These different environments led to two very different subject materials: secular in Amsterdam and non-secular in Rome. Despite some similarities, these differences distinctly separate Protestant Baroque in the north of Europe and Counter-Reformation Baroque in the south of Europe and two paintings can accurately portray these differences and similarities: “The Calling of Saint Matthew” by Caravaggio and “The Art of Painting” by Vermeer.
Indigenous Australian artist, Julie Dowling (b. 1969) was born in Subiaco, Western Australia. Dowling’s upbringing was in semi-rural and urban areas of Redcliffe, Sydney, with a large extended family of impoverished Badimaya and Yamtji, Irish/Scottish Roman Catholics. She often went “bush hunting” with her grandmother, finding old books, bibles, health manuals and such. “That’s how I learned about art. It was a form of gathering information on the fringe, learning from it, know you have intelligence but not being able to access it.” Says Dowling. Her heritage of Badimaya and Yamtji aboriginal decent was recognised early in her work,

Freedom of poverty and individual rights ultimately what Mexican-American cultures strive to obtain in earlier times, according to Viramontes. Although this contains accuracy to an extent, today’s Hispanic American culture fight against stereotypes and hidden oppression of full individual rights. Remedification of potential and hard work is dismissed in this novel, due to Mexican-American’s job status and minimal education. This oppression often leaves Mexican-Americans to keep living in this lifestyle, obvlious to keep working and hopefully achieve grounds to move out of poverty. In the novel, Under the Feet of Jesus, Helena Maria Viramontes emphasizes the physical labor Estrella and her family go through, and how this work reshapes their
Christ with the Symbols of the Passion is a work by Italian painter Lavinia Fontana, its medium is oil on panel and it was executed on 1576. In this piece we see, what seems to be, Christ after he was brought down from the cross. He is sitting at the center of the piece with multiple angels besides him. The color palette seems dark and obscure as well as the overall mood of the piece. He is surrounded by symbols that are significant to the process of His crucifixion such as the cross, the crown of thorns, a whip, and is also surrounded by three angels. This painting is an accurate representation of Italian Mannerist style, and has all the characteristics that defines it as so.
The painting has asymmetrical because the weight on each side is uneven. Mary is much bigger than baby Jesus. The dominate design in the painting would be Mary’s face. Mary’s face is key focus; it draws your attention to see what is next. But, Mary’s hands also take domination because in early painting Mary is barely holding on to Jesus, he is just floating above her lap, but in this painting you can tell the grip Mary has on Jesus. Although Mary’s hand and body itself take up an odd amount of room they help objects such as baby Jesus stand in the painting as well. This painting has a certain movement it creates the gesture of a baby pulling his mother closer to him has he lays his cheek on his mother. The shape used is that of a circular motion. Dieric Bouts create a sense of harmony and wholeness using the same color, skin tone between Mary and Jesus create harmony. You can tell the contrast between the two people Mary symbolizes royalty being the mother of Jesus which, is why she wears blue. Blue symbolizes royalty. Jesus symbolizes purity, which is why he has white on. White is the color of purity. Against Mary and Jesus’ pale skin the makes the color of their clothes pops. Art work has many different moods. The mood of this painting is nurturing and humble. The painting is more life like the any other portrait of Mary and Jesus because Jesus does not have a halo on his head and his
The Last Judgment panel of The Crucifixion; The Last Judgment, by Jan Van Eyck also seems to be separated in three sections as well. From top to bottom is depicts heaven, earth and then hell at the bottom. The top shows Jesus looking majestical along with other angles. The way that this panel is set up also shows the importance of the figures. Jesus is top and center and is also one of the biggest figures on the painting, the Archangel is also depicted on the same scale of Jesus but his wingspan makes him look larger. On the right panel he 's surrounded by angles and apostles. Jesus looks majestic and triumphant in a red robe. Jesus has a yellow glow around his hands and feet that emphasize his puncture wounds from the crucifixion. Mary and John the Baptist are to his left and right, looking up to Jesus. The angels surrounding Jesus seem to be playing instruments and two are holding up the cross. One angle is also bearing the symbols of the crucifixion like the lance Christ was stabbed with and the crown of thorns. The top part of the painting as a very calming and gentle tone to it. Both panels show Jesus but they look like two different people. On the left he 's lifeless, has no clothes on and seems weak. The middle ground between heave and hell is small. It shows the Archangel Michael standing right over death. To Michaels right it shows people rising from their graves. On his left is shows the rippling current of the ocean. Michael drew my eye first in the picture. His
At closer inspection of this art the viewer can see that each of the three people are facing a different direction. They were facing different direction because the artist wanted to capture all angles of Charles I. This oil painting has things like colors to convey a message of peace. With each of these three people having form on them, it conveys a meaning that suggest this painting was done with depth. Space is also used to convey a mood of tranquil. With the artist intended purpose on showcasing Charles I, it seems apparent that the artist achieved his goal. This oil painting has many aspects that compliment other aspects of the art, so that the design looks

Walking through the Huntsville Art Museum really made the wheels in my head begin to turn. Looking at all the different art work I could not help but wonder what the meaning was to so many of these exhibits. There were multiple pieces that caught my eye, but one in particular was the “Providence Church, Perry County, Alabama”. This photograph was taken by William Chritenberry in 1977. Christenberry was born in Tuscaloosa, AL during 1936, and currently lives in Washington, DC.
Between the years 1932 through 1933 Mexican Muralist Diego Rivera created what is said to be his most successful work ever. This particular mural is called “Detroit Industry”. The name was quite literal because the mural depicted just that, the Detroit industry. It is a fresco painting which means it is painted on fresh wet plaster. The fresco painting consist of twenty-seven panels on four different walls North ,South, East, and West. The two main panels on the North and South walls depict laborers working at Ford Motor Company's River Rouge Plant. In May of 2014 the mural reached national landmark status.
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ was and is a miraculous, horrible, and amazing thing all in one. Jesus was created by God, His father, and placed into Mary’s womb to be born as a sinless man. From the time that Jesus was placed in Mary, God knew His plan for Jesus and what He would have to do one day. God knew when he spoke man into existence that we would be sinless creatures in need of an almighty Savior. Even though I, and many others, hate to think about what our Savior went through, I believe it is important. To have knowledge on what Jesus went through for us shows the amount of love He has bestowed upon us. I am so thankful that He would give His perfect life for us sinners whose righteousness is as filthy rags.
