Diego Rivera fuses the stress of blue-collar workers and the beauty of colors to create a fresco piece that demonstrates America’s center of industry, Detroit. All of the details in the piece, Detroit Industry, have a purpose, down to the colors that are chosen. This artwork of his is admired by many and illustrates a strong message about the flow of the factories and the relationship between technology and manufacturing (Smith). Rivera’s life started out in the year of 1886, in Guanajuato City, located in Central Mexico.
Malaga is a colorful city full of life and culture. It is of no surprise that the Picasso Museum of Malaga is too. I had to opportunity to visit this museum last year, and without a doubt it, it is one of my favorites. The building’s architecture, just like the museum’s website mentions, is very representative of Andalusian architecture of the 16th century (Fig. 1). It contains Renaissance and Moorish detailing (Museo Picasso Malaga), which makes it look fairly neat, geometrical, and open.
The Life and Times of Diego Rivera Diego Rivera is one of, if not the most, famous artist to ever come out of South America. His influence can be seen not only to his own country, but also all over the world. Rivera was born on December 13, 1886, the date of one of many Mexican religious festivals, in Guanajuato. He was the first in a set of twins. His twin brother’s name was José Carlos and he died at the age of one and a half.
In the mural,"Going to the Olympics" the painter Frank Romero portrays a wide variety of colors in his painting. The first thing I saw in the painting were most obviously the cars passing by with big hearts over them. This means that the drivers loved their cars maybe and loved to drive around Los Angeles. You can also see palm trees and the ocean behind the cars signifying that they're somewhere around Los Angeles where there is water. As we look up at the sky we can see an iron for some reason, a GoodYear Blimp which is quite common in the city of Los Angeles, a horse, and two men wrestling in the sky.
Lee Teter created his painting Reflections in 1988 using oils on canvas. Just as the title suggests, the painting’s subject is reflections on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. The painting belongs to a private collection owned by Teter himself. In Reflections, Teter depicts a man leaning on the Vietnam Memorial Wall as soldiers reflect back on him, captures on canvas these reflections using muted hues, and immortalizes the loss and struggle of those affected by the Vietnam War.
Grosh’s Brick Wall depicts a simple image: an orange brick wall. Some of the bricks in the wall have dark stains, while others have a bright shade, as if they were put there to replace old or missing pieces. The image stretches from one end of the panel to another, so it doesn’t show anything that might be behind the orange wall. This stage backdrop is an ideal choice as a background for school pictures and other activities.
It could be biased to say that Pablo Picasso was one of the best painter to ever live on earth. If Pablo wasn’t one of the greatest painters that impacted society, then who did? Van Gogh? Pablo Picasso education, childhood, philosophy, and influences may have made him who he was when he was alive yet one may not understand why he is the greatest until they understand a little about him before agreeing to my statement. When it came to schooling; Pablo Picasso was known to be a terrible student to classes.
Introduction We choose the drawing Composition 2 in red blue and yellow, by Piet Mondrian, and the Scream by Edvard Munch. It was pretty easy for us to decide on painters, because we each found one painting that we liked, and then as a group we chose two of the best ones. We chose the Composition 2 in red blue and yellow because of its simplicity, it is simple yet modern and colorful. When we looked up Mondrian drawings, this one caught our eyes most. On top of that it is very different than the Scream.

This scene is taken from the 2010 film directed by Mark Romanek, Never Let Me Go, based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro. My initial intuition about the scene is that life in this world is motivated by selfish and deceitful means. Why would humans be made less in order to save other humans? Why would this hierarchy even exist and who determines the ethics of constructing such hierarchies?
The El Paso Museum of Art had a lot of interesting artwork that caught my attention, however the one that stood out of the most was a color lithograph painting called “We Love, We give, We Die, We Go Someplace, We Love” by Bert Long.
