The Way of Salvation fresco was painted by Andrea diBonauto do Firenze, an Italian artist, on the east wall of the Cappellone degli Spagnoli (Spanish Chapel) in the Chiostro Verde (Green Cloister) of the Church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence. However, the Spanish Chapel only became so in 1566, when the Dominicans handed it over to the Spanish community as a place for them to worship. Originally, it was the chapterhouse “in the Dominican monastery of Santa Maria Novella”, erected in 1350. The fresco, part of a series of frescoes, was painted in 1366-67, commissioned by the patron of the chapel, Buonamico di Lapo Guidalotti, as decorations for his funerary chapel. One of the executors whom Guidalotti named was Fra Jacopo Passavanti.

Baroque period is time in the history of Western arts at around the 17th century. Early manifestations occurred in the final decades of the 16th century in Italy (Durant et al. 67). In some regions like Germany and colonial South America, the accomplishments were felt in the 18th century. This epoch was highly punctuated by artistic style which fused inflated motion and simple detail to generate drama, tension, enthusiasm and magnificence in painting, architecture, dance, music, sculpture, and literature.
In the United States, Neoclassical architecture was influenced by Robert Adam (1728-1792) of England. His designs are very prominent and bold: “Adam filled the interior with opulent marbles, stucco decoration, Corinthian colonnades, and alcoves to contain sculpture copied from the ancients” (Sayre).

Also on that day, Fort San Miguel was capitulated and the British then moved to Fort San Carlos. General Jackson intended to capture Fort San Carlos the following day; however, the British destroyed the fort during the night and run away. On November 14, 1814, Andrew Jackson said to Willie Blount, “…Tremendous explosions told me that the Barancas with all its appendages was blown up…I determined to withdraw my troops, but before I did I had the pleasure to see the British depart.” Very few men were injured or killed in this squabble between the Americans and the British and Spanish. Although this battle was not a very serious one, some historians have said that it was very important in the United States winning the War of 1812. If General Jackson and his men had not run British out of Pensacola so quickly, the British may have had time to plan and take Mobile and possibly New Orleans as well.
The beginning of American society truly started on September 3, 1783 when the Treaty of Paris was signed and the British recognized the colonies as a sovereign nation. Through this recognition, the colonies established its own presence in the world, therefore creating a unique society.

The end of the American Revolution marked the beginning of a new era and not only created the United States of America, but also shaped the newly formed country 's politics, society, and economy. The politics of the newly independent country were shaped by the founding fathers’ past experiences with the British monarchy and parliament.
The Conciergerie was the royal palace, the Palais de la Cité, named after the island of the same name in the middle of the Seine River. It was home to King Louis IX, who had the Sainte-Chapelle built within its grounds. It was also the home of his grandson King Philippe IV, who extended and fortified the palace, creating the towered façade that faced the river. The medieval origin of the building is pretty obvious from the building style of the towers. There are three towers that have survived from the medieval Conciergerie: the Caesar, the Silver and the Bonbec towers.
