Upon looking at the Matisse’s Bonheur de Vivre we see that ultimate departure. My interpretation is of this painting is that it is certainly a contrast with bright colors while at the same time also having a somewhat distorted view of reality and of the human form. This painting was certainly significant in making a bold statement of the human form as well as of human existence being viewed as being leisurely and indulgent. The second painting, could be seen as a departure, just as discussed taking the dehumanization to a different level. The distortion is far more angular and of course, as noted above, the background follows this distortion and further emphasizes this style of
One day a storm blew up, lightning struck him to the ground, and in a panic, he cried. “Help, Saint Anne! I’ll become a monk.” After surviving, two weeks later he withdrew from the university, Entered an Augustinian monastery. In 1505, Luther went to Rome on a diplomatic mission.

In the play, Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus is condemned to death for her act of civil disobedience against the king of the land. By burying her brother, Antigone broke the law and was rightfully punished. King Kreon was correct in enforcing his ruling over the land. Although Antigone was honoring her brother in his death, Kreon determined that it was right to ignore Antigone’s pleas as he sought the betterment of his society and his country. The play initially begins with Antigone speaking with her sister, Ismene, about how she seeks assistance with a criminal act.
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.
The expert use of colours and the elegance of the figures with their long and slender limbs that were in demand from the court of Florence additionally add to the fact. However, being a Renaissance painting, the little use of perspective is made obvious. Some is seen though, through the trees but the one-point linear perspective that early Renaissance artist mastered is not sighted. The Primavera was different from art of earlier periods because it was one of the first known painting which portrays gods and goddesses in life size and essentially naked. Although most poses and figures are taken from Greek sculpture, they were modified by Botticelli to absorb the synchronous Florentine aesthetics which was evident from the figure slightly elongated torsos and bloated tummies.
“The king must die so that the country can live.”-Maximilien Robespierre There were the September massacres where approximately 1200 prisoners were killed. There was also the execution of King Louis the 16th and soon after the execution Marie Antoinette. King Louis, the 16th tried to make a speech before he was beheaded by the guillotine but the noise of the crowd drowned him out. The French revolution shows us that government should respect and listen to what their people want. They should treat them fairly and follow the basic human rights or else it would lead to rage which leads to violence.
When he orders the murder of Macduff he orders the murder of his wife and family as well, an act of malice, not for his own protection. After speaking with the witches, he says, "Then live, Macduff. What need I fear of thee? But yet I’ll make assurance double sure, And take a bond of fate. Thou shalt not live, That I may tell pale-hearted fear it lies, And sleep in spite of thunder."
Which lead Iago asking his wife Emilia to steal Desdemona’s handkerchief so he can place it in Cassio’s bedroom. As a result, Iago motivated Othello’s jealous and to kill Desdemona in bed by smothering her. Then, Iago killed Emilia for speaking out the truth. This plan of manipulating Othello worked in Iago’s favor because of the gender inequality that occurs
“From then on fire/ gunpowder from then on/ and from then on blood./ Bandits with planes and Moors/ bandits with finger-rings and duchesses/ bandits with black friars spattering blessings/ came through the sky to kill children/ and the blood of children ran through the streets/ without fuss, like children’s blood” (Neruda 589). This line represents the collision between the wealthy, the aristocracy, and the Church to suppress the people of Madrid. The reason why it is historical is the term “Moors,” which is a term that refers to the early German invaders who bombed the Guernica village in April 1937. Furthermore, the last example from the poem is the lack of beauty. Neruda writes, “And you will ask: why doesn 't his poetry/ speak of dreams and leaves/ and the great volcanoes of his native land?/ Come and see the blood in the streets…” (Neruda 589).
