The houses of Parliament from Westminister Bridge, 1906 by Andre Derain has three main colors along with white. This painting has an appearance of watercolor with red and yellow buildings and dark green for accents. Next to the buildings there is a blue color that seems to depict water. The building closest to the viewer is red, and the farthest are yellow. The colors are very vibrant and do not seem to fade into each other. In the second painting, The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons by Joseph Mallord William Turner uses much duller version of the same colors. The hot fire is red and orange, while the cooler water is blue. Stars appear to be different colors due to their temperature. Stars radiate energy at different levels, in which
“The fires of Jubilee” is written by author Stephen B. Oates, a book about Nat Turner’s slave rebellion. Oates graduated from The University of Texas in 1968. He is considered to be very well educated on 19th century history and on the civil war. He was a professor at The University of Massachusetts Amherst. The title “The Fires of Jubilee” is referring to when slaves would set the barns and haystacks on fire to signal that their revolt had begun.
In this short summary of a book, Oates, make sure that the reader understands how intelligent Turner really is. Turner read mostly the Bible, any chance he could. Now Turner did read other things, but the Bible allowed him to see that white people, trying to justify that slavery was right, were in fact wrong. The Bible also showed him stories of people that had been captured and later fought and were liberated from being enslaved, or held captive. This influence is what later led Turner to his rebellion.
In the conclusion of his works, Oates asserts that to many African-Americans, Nathaniel Turner is a heroic figure. Speaking of African-Americans, Oates writes, “.... Nathaniel Turner’s rebellion is regarded as the ‘First War’ against slavery and the Civil War as the second. So in death Nathaniel Turner achieved a kind of victory that renounced him in life, he became a martyred soldier of slave liberation who broke his chains and murdered whites because slavery had murdered Negroes...” I do perceive that Oates supports this perspective in his account.
In the 18th century America, a great division existed between the majority of blacks whom many were slaves, whites; men and women; and the upper and lower classes. New York City in 1741 had an economic decline intensified conflict between slaves involved in marketable activity and working-class white colonists who felt as if their jobs were threatened. These two types of people were competing against each which caused a chaos. To make things worse Britain had gone to was with Spain, and Spain promised the slaves for their freedom which made them turn their backs on Britain. This trial is similar to the Salem witch trial where they persecuted, many of who were slaves and a few poor white men.
The Fires of Nat Turner In the book The fires of Jubilee, we notice and go through a lot of Nat Turners violent “rebellion” as a former slave in order to get back at what they have gone through. Nat turner takes a complete different approach than what we saw with our letter from Hammond. Nat Turner with the help of a few other former slaves, have created the highest fatalities during his “rebel” from any slave up rise ever recorded. The book was written from a man who has caught his first ever taste of what freedom was like, which is what initially fueled his need for the rebellion.
Eric Foner’s “The Fiery Trial” is like no other book written of one of the most influential figures of American history paired with one of the most popular issues of American history, Abraham Lincoln and slavery. Foner deliberately strays away from the commonly written biography of Lincoln"s regular life by choosing to follow the path of his political career instead. By taking onhat would seem to be an obvious topic, Lincoln and slavery, and manages to cast new light on it. . This is a wise move since Lincoln was a politician to the core.
#1 New York Times Bestselling author Vi Keeland once stated, “Fear does not stop death, it stops life.” A boundless collection of interpretations represent Keeland’s quotation. Yet, only one remains relevant to the topic at hand: in the events that led to the witch trials of 1692, fear posed as a major barricade in Salem Village, Massachusetts, hindering the Puritans’ ability to pursue everyday life. The Salem Witch Trials are one of our nation’s most compellingly intricate, though tragic, phenomenons. Immersed in a dangerously-religious, hysterical atmosphere, a group of young, attention-seeking girls behaved as if cursed by a demonic spirit.
The Crucible: Henry Miller The Crucible is a book about the Salem witch trials. This books main theory is mob mentality; this book is also a response to the Red Scare. In this book a group of girls are caught participating in witch craft and end up convincing everyone in town they are just overtaken by the devil. Throughout the story they accuse other people of witchcraft which results in their death.
Daemonologie and the religious tensions of late 16th Century Scotland In the second half of the 16th century, Scotland was experiencing a political and religious revolution with war between Catholics and Protestants, the progression of the Reformation and tensions between church and state. In 1597, following his involvement in the North Berwick Witch Trials, James VI published a treatise called Daemonologie. This work had a significant impact, sparking a widespread national witch hunt.
"The Crucible" is play by Arthur Miller that takes place in Salem, Massachusetts during infamous witch trials of 1692.

The painting is oil on canvas and contains an extensive amount of contrast. For example, the bright vermillion blanket against the dull eggshell colored door. The disparity between the colors used is prominent. Additionally, the fusion of ornate patterns and simplistic solids is evident. The tablecloth is a geometric mixture of cream and periwinkle.
In this article, the author, Edmund S. Morgan discussed how witch trials became an issue in the Salem Village which dispersed to other towns. The witch trials were well known in the sixteenth century. In the beginning, Morgan stated “the trials occurred at a time when the people of Massachusetts were passing through a very difficult time.” (Morgan, 47) The author clearly wanted to inform the readers that Massachusetts was already in a rough state to begin with until the witch trials came along.
In this report I will explore the book Fire in The grove written by the author John C. Esposito. The book specifically describes the event of the fire, the reasons behind it, and who was responsible for this horrific disaster. The author explains that the main reasons of the fire were the structure of The Grove and the layout it was portrayed in. Later giving solutions on how to react if such incident happens as I explain further in the report.
giving the painting a cartoon feel by emphasizing the onomatopoeic lettering in a yellow box, showing that the plane has blown up. This painting includes warm colors such as a vibrant red and yellow as well as neutral colors like gray, white, and black. Lichtenstein’s colors and the use of natural colors are very predominant in his work of art. He uses a sense of contrast between dull and vibrant colors to emphasize the importance of what’s going on and where the focal point is.
It has a dark undertone. The essential colors are black and gray. There are some specks of light blue and yellow surrounding the center. The visual look of the painting is distinctive because it does not display a landscape or focus on a particular thing- rather, it is just based on solid colors with non symmetrical, wavy
