Rachmaninoff’s intricate childhood and his later psychological problems certainly echoed in his compositional style. Probably the most significant source of inspiration for Rachmaninoff’s Etude-Tableaux were Arnold Böcklin paintings. Rachmaninoff visited an art gallery in Leipzig, Germany, where he was profoundly fascinated by Böcklin’s paintings. Rachmnainoff’s tone poem The Isle of the Dead stands as testimony to prove this theory since it was inspired by Böcklin’s painting with the same name. Böcklin’s works reveal acute observation and a feeling for refined color effects .
Nathaniel Hawthorne has a very unique usage of language to describe and paint a picture of Hester. One important thing he does is use many different types of tones throughout the story that correlate with the way the Puritans look at Hester. Hawthorne also does a good job of using symbolism to depict an image of Hester through many different type of symbols, the most significant being the scarlet A on her chest. Lastly, Hawthorne does a good job of putting direct quotes from the Puritan people describing Hester, which allows the reader to see exactly what they think about her and shows the way society creates a picture of her. Hester also fits the description of many of things mentioned in Proverbs 31:10-31 which describes a wife of noble character.
Edith Wharton is an American author of the late nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries. In her novella Ethan Frome, Wharton uses symbolism to develop the theme of her story. Ethan Frome takes place in Starkfield, Massachusetts in which there's little tolerance towards sinful deeds.

Also, this paper will analyze the formal structure of the painting through color, lines, space and mass, and composition. And furthermore, recognize the symbolism documented in the painting for iconographic analysis. In doing so, this will highlight and comment on important characteristics of Omnibus Life in London as it yields new information regarding the emerging shift in social inequality. Through formal analysis, the visual characteristics of the work present an interesting insight into the painting. The first emotion that I experienced with this work was claustrophobia and crowdedness.
Kesey used a collection of literary devices such as symbolism, situational irony, imagery, and analogy, to imply the central theme of the novel, the allegory to 1960's American Society. As Ken Kesey initiates his novel, he adds a more visual description to further enhance the audience's’ view on the meeting’s “usual procedure” held by Nurse Ratched. He does so by using an analogy to compare the meeting to a “peckin’ party” since all the nurse does is point out imperfections as well as lower down the patient’s self-esteem in order to run according to her rules.
Each item is representative of an idea and all together tell a story. According to Gateways to Art, a textbook authored by Debra J. DeWitte, Ralph M. Larmann, and M. Kathryn Shields, their interpretation is that the artwork is “a homage to Marilyn and a reflection on the morality of us all.” (156). They are able to draw this conclusion based on the iconographic meaning of each individual item and the way in which they are arranged on the canvas. Mirrors are meant to reference vanity and also the “transience of youth, beauty, and life” (DeWitt et al. 155).
Modern art takes the best of artists and their art work and adapts it, adding new techniques and personal styles of each.

Context In this analysis I will be talking about the amazing art work done by Leonardo Da Vinci Cecelia Gallerini from around the 1489–1490. Lady with an ermine shows a variety of techniques that were used in the Renaissance time. First was the use of chiaroscuro; the use of shadow to enhance the three dimensional relief of the figure which made it look realistic and stand out. Second, his use of sfumato; to create fine and very gradual tonal changes, specifically used around the eyes and mouth (a technique used extensively in Mona Lisa.

While reading the book “God’s Jury: The Inquisition and the Making of the Modern World”, I found a sense that while the book had very interesting and questioning connections with a variety of passed inquisitions and where or how there are similarities to our modern time. Which is explained greatly by Murphy, functioning as a guide to the readers, offering a tour of the Inquisition’s nearly 700-year-old. I also found that Murphy did a great job in defining and explaining in detail the various gruesome instruments and acts of torture through history and showing similarities and same techniques used today. My the one problem I had was I found it an overall amusing to read, but personally until the first 3-4 chapters the book is quite difficult to digest and connect with, but as the inquisitions began to be more modern era I could relate and see the points and connections that were being made. I found that Murphy’s focus was to demonstrate how the mind-set and some machinery of the Inquisitions are unpreventable products of the modern world that later surfaced in Stalin’s Russia,
We will probably never know. However, it has a resemblance to the “Mona Lisa” and her smile. She too has this smirk on her face as if taunting the public to interpret the meaning of her painting. Just like in Helmers and Hill’s article, people make connections between past photos or art to try to analyze a different photo, for example their comparison to Franklin’s 9/11 photo and the photo of “Iwo Jima” (Helmers and Hill). They
All three artists uses the lines in weird directions such as crisscrossing and diagonal placements in both artworks. In the Blue (Crest), used different tints of blue and Vertigo, used different tints of orange giving two different views of the artwork. The blue used in In the Blue (Crest) helped with portraying the feel of water and the orange just seems as a color placed in the painting of Vertigo, even though with the lines it helps represents the chaos in the picture. They both were similar besides the dimensions, In the Blue (Crest) did give a different feel since it was three dimensional than the two dimensional
