Chinese painting has been the major art form within Chinese tradition throughout centuries. Their paintings distinguish themselves from other art forms from different countries by their use of ink to emphasize motion and bring liveliness into a two-dimensional piece. In order to understand the old and ancient practices of Chinese painting, one must look towards Xie He’s Six Laws (or Methods) of Painting. In a demonstration of He’s six methods, Han Gan’s Night Shining White (short handscroll, ink on paper, early 8th century) not only is able to capture the physical representation of his subject but also the spiritual energy as well. Most famous of the Tang dynasty for capturing the visualness and spirituality of horses was Han Gan (Hearn).
The discovery of linear perspective provided the transition from gothic art to renaissance art and it revolves around the renaissance period for many years till the inception of cubism. What renaissance artists had clearly achieved through a thorough observation was discovered by artist and architect Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446 CE) who carry out a series of optical experiments leading to the theory of linear perspective and with this it was possible to analyse its structure mathematically. He suggested a method that justifies on how a size of an object being reduced in relation to their place and distance from the eye.

In what X considers to be transitional literature by ABV, ABV mixes science fiction with myth… The end result is a play that By virtue of complex technical devices, Antonio Buero Vallejo effectively portrayed the moral consequences of the Spanish civil war still present thirty years on in his drama El tragaluz. One of the most significant devices used by Buero Vallejo is the dramatization of time. This essay will examine Buero Vallejo’s use of temporality in unveiling the human condition and its demise, the impact of war on the family and what Buero considered the changing values of society in the wake of technological encroachment in the twentieth century. On its premiere in Madrid in 1967, El tragaluz was very well received, particularly due to its ‘experimental’ structure and subtle criticism of the Franco regime, which were considered avant-garde for the time. The play calls for the audience to be propelled into the distant future and become observers of an experiment that is temporally based in the 1960s.
The Occidental painter renders minute detail; he satisfies the imagination he evokes. But his Oriental brother either suppresses or idealises detail--steeps his distances in mist, bands his landscapes with cloud, makes of his experience a memory in which only the strange and the beautiful survive, with their sensations. He surpasses imagination, excites it, leaves it hungry with the hunger of charm perceived in glimpses only. Nevertheless, in such glimpses he is able to convey the feeling of a time, the character of a place, after a fashion that seems magical. He is a painter of recollections and of sensations rather than of clear-cut realities; and in this lies the secret of his amazing power--a power not to be appreciated by those who have never witnessed the scenes of his inspiration.

In Mantegna’s later years when he began to get old and have bad health, he worked thoroughly during the remaining years of his life. Mantegna painted the Parnassus, a picture celebrating the marriage of Isabelle d’Este to Francesco Gonzaga in 1947.
Lind Charnes explains through Tudor’s legend that Richards’s body is regarded as evidence of his identity. The fact that his body is handicapped the character considers his likeness as an individual suffers as well. That he word can have no legitimate authority because he is considered impaired due to his exterior. Charnes goes on to explain how the play uses political visions to combat for an alternate strategy to his form. In medieval political theology, she explains how the “King’s Body” has no flaws and is the highest manifestation of Gods graces on earth.
