In much of her art Kahlo was able to express the loneliness she felt, an example can be The Wounded Table. In this piece of art, Frida was on stage in a scene where she was accompanied by her fawn, niece and nephew, a skeleton, and a Judas. However, their company wasn’t so gratifying. In Frida, Herrera is describing the painting by saying “the characters are in a moment of suspended animation, like actors just after the curtain is raised…they seem frozen by the heroine’s panicked loneliness” (Herrera, 1983, 280). Its like they say, even though you’re surrounded by many people you still feel the sense of loneliness when they aren't providing the necessary affection that is needed.

The use of the story of Sir Lancelot and his lover provides yet another reference point for the reader if they were unaware of the story of Francesca and Paolo.
Many artists before and after him have had egos that required a tremendous amount of nurturing. Duccio one of the first Renaissance painters was one such artist. He signed his Maesta, "Holy Mother of God, be thou the cause of peace for Siena and life to Duccio because he painted thee thus," which was an immodest manner of seeking praise. Also, the northern Renaissance painter Jan Van Eyck had a similar mindset. In his Arnolfini Portrait he signed the image Jan Van Eyck was here.

In Rossetti 's poetry the themes Love, death and religious belief are inseparable. This can be seen through three key poems. The poem 'A Smile and a Sigh ' expresses different aspects of love and it could be suggested that it demonstrates different viewpoints of love. This wouldn 't be unexpected as Rossetti experienced different relationships from heartbreak/loneliness and unwanted love. In addition, Rossetti demonstrates the theme of religious belief through the poem 'Up-Hill ' where Rossetti proclaimed that she (or others) relied on religion.

In the 1980s, this covering was removed during a restoration of the fresco and the characters are currently displayed in the nude (Tuscany).

She also makes divine grace accessible to him with her selfless acts. Another significant point in Canto II is that we can see some characteristics of “dolce stil novo” through Virgil’s description of
