Introduction The Great Gatsby is a film based off the Novel written by an American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. About a fictional town set off the West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. It was released in 2013, directed by Baz Luhrmann along side Craig Pearce (writer/actor). Part of what makes Fitzgerald 's novel such a favorite piece is the way he is able to analyze the society of which he was also a part of. Through his characters, he not only captures a snapshot of middle- and upper class American life in the 1920s, but also conveys a series of criticisms as well.
Fitzgerald means for Tom’s love interests to personify the extremes of the spectrum of whiteness on the surface level and in their naming; the highest level of whites will use their power to tear apart those lower than them with no remorse, which will destroy white society from the inside, just as Daisy ended Myrtle. Unsurprisingly, F. Scott Fitzgerald drew inspiration for writing from the world he lived in. Fitzgerald lived from 1896 to 1940, but the nineteen-twenties were his time to flourish (Donaldson 16). Fitzgerald spent a great deal of his time in and around New York city, with his wife Zelda Fitzgerald; though, he wrote The Great Gatsby in France, which hit better with reviewers than his previous works (20-4). Fitzgerald framed The Great Gatsby in the era he knew best, the Jazz Age; referring to the nineteen-twenties in the United States, the Jazz Age claims its name due to the popular musical genre derived
Trains between Benicia and Suisun City began during autumn 1879, and ferry service commenced on 28 December 1879. Although this route needed a boat transfer, the CAL-P was seventy-five miles shorter than the path via Altamont Pass. On the same July 1871 day, the Associates also incorporated the SAN PABLO & TULARE RAILROAD COMPANY. The Associates intended to circumvent the need for slow, expensive helper engines, and their attendant crews, imposed by the Altamont Hills. The water-level route they proposed diverged from the Central Pacific tracks three miles from Ellis and headed north to meet the Northern Railway at Port Costa.

Nick Carraway, like his father 25 years before, graduated from New Haven in 1915. Following his graduation, Nick participated in World War I, much like his great-uncle did in the American Civil War.

Perspective Art is used to signify three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface such as a piece of paper to make it realistic. The first known perspective was created by Filippo Brunelleschi in 1415 and it was a painting of the baptistery in Florence, Italy. Perspective was invented in Florence, Italy by Brunelleschi. Linear perspective was also famously used by Leonardo Da Vinci when he created The Last Supper between 1495 – 1498 because the painting has a single vanishing point which leads into the horizon. Another artist that used linear perspective in their artwork was Masaccio who famously painted the Tribute Money in 1425.
Botticelli's The Birth of Venus was created in 1482-1486. It is a tempera on canvas. Tempera on canvas is a type of painting which is painted on oil painitng cloth. Botticelli's The Birth of Venus is a horizontal painting, which scaled 5'8" x 9'1. Raphael's Galatea, on the other hand, was created in 1513.
The film the Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann is a faithful adaptation to the novel the Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The Great Gatsby was published in 1926 and follows a young man named Nick Caraway as he narrates the story telling us about the roaring 1920s and all about the Great Gatsby, that is until the story unfolds and we see who the Great Gatsby really is.

Throughout the film version of the Great Gatsby the point of view shown is very similar, this can also be said for the characterisation of most characters especially Daisy. However, the film by Luhrmann differs from the novel
He was heavily influenced by Dante and greatly influenced later Renaissance writers. Bosch’s "Triptych of The Temptation of St. Anthony" is a large oil painting on three different wood panels that represents the truth in a realistic manner. The painting tells the story of St. Anthony Abbot and the torments he had to endure. He lived from 251-356 and was born in Egypt. He was a christian saint and hermit.
The artist, Thomas Cole, was an American painter born in England during the 19th century. Cole became famous for his paintings of landscapes, including The Oxbow. The 130.8 by 193 centimeter painting was done in 1836 using oil paints on canvas. Painted originally in the United States, the symbolic piece now resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art located in New York City. The painting by Cole obviously depicts a landscape, especially one of the iconic bend in the Hudson river, but in fact there is much more to the piece.
