Analysis Of The Painting 'Moving Day'

Decent Essays
The painting “Moving day” from 1967 seems to be about a black family who is moving to another country. When a person who is different moves to another place, with other people, it’s harder to become a part of the people who is already living there. That’s because they don’t know anybody at all. In this painting the black kids have a cat, and the white kids have a dog. I think that is a detail with a lot of meaning. The cat and the dog are different, and they sometimes don’t like each other because of that. Dogs and cats can be friends too, but sometimes the dog can be (avstøtende), and not accept the cats for who they are. That is exactly the same as black and white people do to each other.
