Saint Francis Altarpiece: The Beauty Vicent Van Gogh once said, “If you hear a voice within you ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” Like most of Gogh’s paintings, Bonaventura Berlinghieri painted what he was passion about. Berlinghieri was “…know for his poignant and detailed scene from the life of the Saint Francis on the predella (based of the altarpiece) of the Church of San Francesco at Pescia” (The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica). The Saint Francis Altarpiece is a five feet panel, created in 1235 as a depiction of Saint Francis and the church.

Like Water for Chocolate The theme of magical realism is manifested in the Laura Esquivel’s novel Like Water for Chocolate. Elements of magical realism are reflected mainly through Tita’s food recipes, as the food takes on supernatural qualities. The effects that they have on the characters in Esquivel’s book may seem far-fetched and yet it fits in with the nature of her book where impossible lactations, ghosts, the salt producing tears and so much more. These elements are cathartic releases for the characters. There are many instances in Like Water for Chocolate where Laura Esquivel uses magic realism.
The Sistine Chapel in Rome, Italy was first completed in 1481. Throughout the years, there have been multiple restorations of the ceiling to remove debris and clean the artwork. These restorations created much controversy on whether the cleaning was ethical and kept the artists initial intent. The restorations have kept the ceiling in tact and from fading in color and forms completely, however, it also changed the original beauty of Michelangelo’s work. There is not a single way to examine the legitimacy of these restorations, nor is there one correct opinion because every argument intertwines and influences the other.
My piece that I chose to stare at for 20 minutes was Gino Severini’s Armored Train in Action. I chose this piece to spend my time at, particularly because of the way the composition is set up so that the train looks like it’s coming right at you, and the way that the artist uses not only tone, but his brush strokes also to create depth in the painting. Severini paints very colorfully and uses lighting and shadow, and if you look closer depending how the thing he is drawing or painting bends or folds, he will keep his brush strokes in that direction to show the bend not only with color but with the strokes in the paint themselves. George Seurat’s brush strokes come a lot to mind when i see them, but more in an organized fashion. Gino Severini was born April 7th, 1883 in Cortona Italy.
Filippo Brunelleschi’s background was quite unassuming and would have been typical of a great many of the great Renaissance men. He was born in 1377 in Florence Italy.

However, when Filippo showed talents in Engineering it was decided he would undertake an apprenticeship in the workshop of a family friend, a goldsmith named Benincasa Lotti. In the late fourteenth century a studio system of workshops developed that would prove integral to the economic and cultural prosperity of Northern Italy.
