HIs work with expanding the rights of workers through factory regulation and organized unions was continued even after his death by the organization her started in 1886. The American Federation of Labor outlasted even the Knights of Labor, and today is still a well respected organization. The American Federation of Labor grew from 50,000 members in 1886, to nearly 3 million members in 1924.
Melvin Williams Arth 1381 Professor Zalman 13 November 2014 Visual Analysis The painting, The Basket Chair c.1885 by Berth Morisot, and the painting The Orange Trees c. 1878 by Gustave Caillebotte, are both magnificent and interesting pieces that I got the opportunity to see. The paintings are both wonderful pieces and their composition overall is very impressive. Both paintings have different aspects in the way the artist displayed modernism, formal characteristics, class and gender, and the subject matter of the painting itself.
He studied mathematics, religious philosophy, and science of horses. He got money by painting portraits. While he was at Yale, he was also attentive at Benjamin Silliman and Jeremiah Days classes on electricity, though he still only cared for art. When he got home in 1810, his father wanted him to go on to be a book writer, so he encouraged Samuel to be a booksellers apprentice, but later changed his mind and allowed Samuel to go to London to continue studying art. After returning to the US again, in 1815, he opened his own art studio in Boston for his own professional career.

Bartolome Estaban Murillo was born on December 31, 1617 in Serville, Spain (Bartolome Estaban Murillo). He is known as one of “the most popular Baroque religious painters of the 17th-century Spain…” (Bio.com). Murillo grew up with a love of art due in part to his uncle and cousins being artists. “After being orphaned at age ten, Murillo was taken in by his older sister and her husband, who apprenticed him to the local painter Juan de Castello about two years later”. One of his first jobs was “painting decorations for local fairs as well as canvases for exports for the Americas”.
Roosevelt easily beat his former close ally, Al Smith. Roosevelt won the nomination with the aid of a powerful publisher and the House Speaker John Nance Garner. Garner became the vice president. The thing that got Roosevelt so much support and fame was his New Deal, which was a plan and a set of programs that were designed to start a recovery from the Depression, and ensure the people that it would never happen again, it offered relief for the millions of suffering people. The new deal was so impacting and hopeful for the people and is another great example of why people would rank him to be one of the top presidents of the United States.
William Merritt Chase (1849 –1916), a prolific artist from Illinois who trained first in New York and then in Munich, became a key American artist in the Impressionist movement. Often, Chase was unfairly overlooked because of his contemporaries, yet Chase was deserving of the same repute as he was “equally capable and talented” as some of the most famous expatriate artists of the time, such as John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, or Mary Cassatt. When viewing such works as Mrs. Chase in Prospect Park, it is clear to see that he merited more recognition as an artist who was truly unique and progressive during an already incredibly innovative movement. In order to comprehend the many facets of Chase’s work, it is helpful to examine one of his paintings.
The 1920’s is the most live time in U.S. History. From the movements towards women rights to Prohibition, this decade was fruitful and dancing with joy and fear. The gladness arrived from the start of the exponential explosion of the country’s economy, where the wealth of the land doubled and people could go from shoddy farms to millionaires. Following suit was the movements of women rights and their ability to vote. With every smile there is a tear to follow.

The North had a much bigger advantage not only in the economic region but also in population and its increase. Major cities like Boston, Philadelphia gre at least 25 percent each decade between 1800 and 1860. New York alone, grew from 60,000 in 1800 to 202,600 in 1830. Cities grew not only because natural birth but mainly because of immigration movements coming from Europe.
Leonardo Da Vinci 's The Last supper is a popular work of art that is Da Vinci 's rendition of the last supper as told in the bible. This paper will include an in depth visual analysis of the painting as it appeared on the original canvas. The paper will also address the cultural and religious significance of this work of art in that time period. I chose to do the analysis on The Last Supper because it is an artwork that i have seen many times in my life, but oddly enough do not know a lot about. In this paper i plan to not only inform you , but inform myself on the many aspects of The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci.
For Jan Van Eyck’s first post, I used his The Adoration of the Lamb from the Ghent Altarpiece. I used this painting because it is part one of his most famous works. My caption was “Squad’s all here.” I used this because many different people are gathered in one place to celebrate one thing. Squad is a small group of people having a particular task.

The two pieces of work that I thought were very eye catching was Girl with a Dog by Horace Bundy and Dodo and Her Brother by Ernst Kirchner. Bundy was incredibly captivating with his use of an oval shaped canvas. It really contrasted with the structured form within this portrait. The Girl with a Dog is oil on canvas painted in 1852. This type of portraiture is very unique and is quite modern compared to the standard portraits that contain one subject matter and direct gaze.
