There is more going on in this painting since the river path way guides our eyes to the back as the sky seems to get darker.

Griffin contains numerous examples of violence. ALA says that Killing Mr. Griffin was the 4th most challenged book of 2000 for violence. (www.revolvy.com/main/index.php?s=Killing+Mr.+Griffin). On page 74 the book states, “From his position in the backseat, David was holding the bag down with difficulty as the man in front twisted and shoved at it with frantic hands.” this violence can make the reader feel the force David had to apply to get the bag over the man’s head.

The Consummation of Empire is the 3rd painting in the collection Course of an Empire by Thomas Cole. in this painting there is barely any nature/ vegetation. There are many people some on horses, some on boats, and many on the ground. Even though there is a lot of people in the painting the most noticeable thing is the bid building that takes up most of the space and the gold statues on top of them. The building is huge and everywhere.
“He knit together space by stretching areas of white across the center of the picture, letting our eye move from the cotton on the left, through the newspaper, to the shirt of the figure on the right” (Edgar Degas Most Important Art
He describes a huge black clock in the last room that denotes every passing hour so noisily that the majority of the visitors at the gathering observe it, it appears to be genuinely clear
This piece resembles an installation because many small, stacked boxes, or cubicles, make up a large, curved wall. Again, each box had variety with different wooden pieces, just as Sky Cathedral. It was originally painted in black so that Nevelson could display the sculpture with a low blue light. Nevelson altered the light to make different shadows appear within the piece because the shadows created were just as important as the sculpture itself (Kirkeby). Homage to 6,000,000 includes asymmetrical balance since one side is different than the other in terms of shape and placement of the wooden objects.
I had zero memory of him, but Qingming festival always reminded me that he was an important part of my family. Qingming festival is one of the prominent Chinese traditions.

The sky is a yellow orange colour with a light of black at the top and then some white spots around the sides of the mountain along with some fog.
The British were in massive debt following the French and Indian war, therefore they placed taxes on the colonists in order to regenerate some of that money lost. The Sugar Act of 1764 taxed the sale of molasses in hopes to gain some lost money, but this act led the people of Boston to boycott the molasses industry. The Stamp Act of 1765 shortly followed, making colonists buy a stamp with every paper product. The rage the colonists felt over the passing of this act, led the colonies to begin to unify as they together boycotted the trade industry. The Townshend Duties of 1767 imposed taxes on glass, lead, paint, paper and tea, but this only led to the colonist to again boycott the trade of those items and start newspaper attack.
15) Thomas Jefferson believed that if America cut off trade with other countries, then those countries would cooperate with American demands. A problem with this, was when he used American trade to get the French and English to meet their demands by cutting off ALL trade with ALL countries. These were called the Embargo Acts of 1807. The Americans were more greatly affected than the French or British because the French and British did not completely rely on America, but the merchants and traders were pretty dependent on trade with the French and British. The Embargo Acts cut the American gross national product by 5% and weakened the economy.

Things worth three hundred and fifty dollars was worth five dollar (Heinrich 38).
Like the rest of the interior the walls smelt of cardboard, the scent fully submerging you into the atmosphere that the church created. Metal fold out chairs, though not particularly comfortable, are lined in several rows across the room, allowing for substantial seating. The only things connecting the barn itself to the realm of Christendom is the large cross placed in the front of the room and the worshipers it keeps within its
