Unfortunately, when his father became ill Leutze had to focus on supporting the family instead of art. He went back to his studies of painting in 1834 with the help of John Rubens Smith (1775-1849), known for his paintings and print works.

In Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five, Billy Pilgrim spends most of his time traveling from present to past, and back and forth. Everyone who met Billy assumed he’d lost his mind or was simply speaking nonsense. However, according to Billy’s story as told by the narrator, there is evidence that suggests there’s a possibility Billy did in fact time travel; Billy’s reaction to the barbershop quartet’s singing during his eighteenth wedding anniversary in 1964, the presence of a framed quote in Billy’s office, and the return of the picture of the woman and the pony.

In 1964, two days after meeting his favorite author, Kilgore Trout, Billy and Valencia held a party for their eighteenth wedding anniversary.

Matthew” is an oil on canvas scenery piece from the Baroque period in Italy. The painting was commissioned for the Contarelli chapel in the French church of San Luigi dei Fancesi in Rome (Artble).

He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complicated fields, without delay each a direct expression of the sensations of the looking at eye and an abstraction from discovered nature. The paintings convey Cezanne 's severe study of his topics, a looking gaze and a dogged conflict to deal with the complexity of human visual belief.
