Correspondingly, instead of providing an answer, de Kooning’s artworks pose a question and allow whoever their viewer is to relate to the artwork and find the answer they are looking for, and that answer may be different for everyone, because there is no absolute – right or wrong – in de Kooning’s work, only movement, line, and shape. And that is why de Kooning’s work is considered living art, because viewing his art is a unique experience to every individual, and if Wormser was to explicitly describe de Kooning’s artworks he would have spoiled the experience for his readers and take away the subjectivity of the artwork that lies within each individual’s imagination. As Wormser explains, back when de Kooning was still an amateur painter, he
In Fact Chris never gave up on his goal, as noted on Page 75 in the book Krakauer tells us “Chris cheerfully announced that he had “Recast” his goals and next intended to walk around the world living out of his backpack.” Ever since he had everything handed to him, he always wanted to live somewhere where he could find truth. In all honesty, Chris gave people gifts, in the book it says, “Alex insisted on giving Gallien all he had, and that if he didn’t accept it he would throw it away.”(Krakauer 3) Chris felt that anything that he got from his past life would just be a distraction and he did not really need it.

His greatest contribution to art is the cultivation of the modern art concept, known as 'impressionism'(Claude Monet, 2004). It is an artistic philosophy which changed the then accepted perception of color and light.His artistic style is characterized by the use of feathery strokes of the paint brush to depict the play of light with respect to the time. He believed that depicting 'time' in a painting is more important than the 'plot', and was interested in using his painting to capture the feel of the moment. As per Monet "One does not paint countryside, a view, a figure. One paints an impression of an hour of the day (Brussat and Brussat, n.d.)."
Niccolò Machiavelli, Baldassare Castiglione and George Washington all had small factors of similarity within their interpretation of an ideal person, some more than others. Machiavelli valued the unpleasant truth, so that people would view the world with a notion of realism. He also always wanted to be in control and make his own decisions without anyone else's opinion to mar his idea of keeping authority with others. And he furthermore pushed the trait of fake sincerity. Instead of truthfully being honest, religious and merciful, he told one that you should fake it, so that when the time arrives, you can switch your personality.

Through the work, the creativity, and the self-exploration, he made himself an artist. Due to his self-expression and rejection of instruction, Paul finds his own style, his truth, and with that: peace. Paul isn 't perfect, but he knows who he is.

The Hudson River School was a group of American artists who were interested in capturing aspects of the American landscape and also shared a specific genre of painting. Their focus shifted across the continent and many tried to capture the beauty of the uncultivated west. Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand were two very significant Hudson River School artists whose almost invisible brushstrokes and muted palette defined the art of the American landscape for society in the mid-nineteenth century. Previously, Europe had been the center for art and controlled what art was accepted, but the United States’ uncultivated wilderness was a popular subject for landscape painters. There was a sense of mystery and grandeur that was attractive to artists and people paying to see the art.
