His past is inspiring ,he discovered the north pole, he didn 't get noticed until 5 decades later Matthew Henson faced tragedies as a child. I know this because of a biography written off him, which talked about “American Explorer Matthew Henson who was born on August 8 1866 in Charles Lantry Maryland, the son of two freeborn sharecroppers. Henson lost his mother at the age of three” (bibliography) This evidence supports that he was born, a free sharecropper and lost his mother 3 years later. Which is very sad at a young age. After his mom died his dad relocated the family and died a year later leaving Henson an

A few years back, I went to the St. Louis Art Museum with my father. While there I got to witness a replica of Van Gough’s Starry Night. I was in awe of the beautiful way he used lines, patterns, motions, and colors to create this painting. In chapter two of A World of Art By: Henry M. Sayre we learn about interpretation of art, and how one piece of artwork can be seen many ways. Starry Night is no different; many believe that it shows Van Gough’s struggle with illness, which is expressed in the dimness of the night.

Toward the end of the 19TH century, S. Freud, a renowned psychiatrist, was investigating unconscious phenomena and the influence of childhood events on the causation of neurosis. At about the same time, Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863- 1944) began to express his inner world through his artistic creations, giving birth to an exceptional art style which would later be known as Expressionism. Edvard Munch’s mother premature death from tuberculosis, was one of the most painful event in his life. She died in 1868, leaving Edvard, who was five, his three sisters and younger brother in the care of her much older husband, Christian, a doctor imbued with a religiosity that often darkened into gloomy fanaticism. Several years later, the death
Pollock was living in the suburbs of New York, where he had rented a house, he got the inspiration from the eelgrass marshes and gorgeous watery light, which were surrounding his house. Whereas, Tanguy’s most inspiration was his own family, where his brother was killed in the World War 1 and the painting also depicts his suffering during that period of time. In Number 1, Pollock dripped, poured and flung pigment from packed brushes and sticks while walking around it. He claimed that this technique allowed him to paint from all angles and sides on the canvas and he could explore revolutionary angles or things of the painting. In Mama Papa wounded, Tanguy used brushes for painting this painting.
Van Gogh's Starry Night is considered his most famous work and it characterizes his individual technique. The style of this painting is another example of mixing abstract with realism. I can clearly tell what is the sky, what is a mountain, and what is a building, and yet all of these objects seem to mix and swirl into one another in a way that they seem connected. The artist use of thick and flowing layered lines made the sky expands beyond the place. In Starry Night Van Gogh´s unique, thick brushstrokes are very much evident and there is a consistency to his technique that adds even more depth and texture to this work of art and made it look like a dream.
In Edgar Allan Poe’s works, such as Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, Annabel Lee, and The Fall of the House of Usher, Poe attracts his readers with his one-of-a-kind genre of gothic. Much of his gothic genre in his writings have been influenced by past event in his life. First of all, Poe had never really known his parents because his father had left the house and his mother had died of tuberculosis when he was only three years old. For these reasons, he went to live with Frances and John Valentine Allan, who helped him get into West Point. Unfortunately, Poe was kicked out of West Point because of his alleged poor handling of his duties and later married his cousin, Virginia, who was only 13, when he was 24 years old.
