Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. Fittingly, it was named after the king of the gods in Roman mythology. The distance from the Sun to Jupiter is approximately 779 million km, or 484 million miles. The exact number is 778,547,200 km. The most obvious features on Jupiter are the alternating bands of white and colored clouds, zones and belts. Analysis of data at many wavelengths shows that the white regions have higher thicker, clouds than the redder regions.
The painting this paper will focus on is titled The Abduction of Europa by Noël-Nicolas Coypel. In this painting, the artist uses composition, light, color, and expressive qualities to achieve the mood of romance and playfulness in a mythological scene.

In the this painted visual, we are specifically witnessing the moment Jupiter is swimming away with Europa and taking her far from her home.
While the painters after the Impressionism period were collectively called the “Post-Impressionists,” the label is quite reductive. Each artist had their own unique style, from Seurat’s pointillism to Signac’s mosaic-like divisionism, Cezanne, Émile Bernard, and others. These artists were all connected in that they were reacting to the aesthetics of Impressionism. Two of the more influential painters from this movement were Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, who aimed to connect with viewers on a deeper level by access Nature’s mystery and meaning beyond its superficial, observable level. However, each artist’s approach to achieving this goal was different. In close examination of Vincent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait (Dedicated to Paul Gauguin) and Paul Gauguin’s Self-Portrait with Portrait of Émile Bernard (Les misérables), one may clearly see the two artists’ contrasting styles on display.
Henri Matisse was known as the Fauvists leader due to his work of pure colors and bright lights. In 1906, he traveled to Africa and was inspired by the sculpture art.

This also shows his academic interests. He continues to share is ability to be artistic in this paragraph when he says, “I was an artist, always had been, and I would paint in their style, in reds, oranges, and rusts, on the rocks by the creek-geometric designs.” He reflects on his artistic ability and lonely despair when he states, “I lived in the worlds that I drew. ”(Paragraph 17) and again in paragraph 22: “I had painted a great Aztec pyramid under only black storm clouds, with nine masque-hideous faces upon it, one face for each tier. The lighting was angry and hellish and read, and an uneasy orange fire burned in each masque-face’s eyes.

He also keeps to himself and in extremely personal. Additionally, he does not show a lot emotions towards others, and he choices to keep his thoughts to himself. Through the book, there are many themes and universals truths that are displayed. The deeper the reader gets into the book, the more they find out about Joseph and why he acts like he does.

All the figures in the painting have different expressions on their faces. For example Mr. Columbus starrs dirrectly at the group of coucil men sitting infront of him to convince them of the new world he had discovered. He stands infront of the crowd, looking like a honorable man, with his chesting bulsging out and his right footing pointing forward. His left hand is holding a map, while the right firmly points at it. There is a concil man sitted next to where Christopher stands, looks down at the map to validate Mr. Columbus agruement. There are three figures standing on the left excluding the king and his guides. These men seem so suppresed by what Columbus is telling them, that one of them grab the other firmly on the shoulder to perheps ask him how all of it is possible. The king on the other hand opens his month wide in disbelieve and his hands lift up at about a 30 degree angle, as if he was attempting to stop Columbus from fabricating more lies. On the far right of the painting, there is a boy with what appears to be a map that he is showing two men on his right.; they both starr at it while the other lean forward with his hand placed under his chin. Human drama remains me of Giotto style in Italy 1400-1500. He was the first artists to incoporate human drama into his work by including little details of gustures and emotions. This very artist was great at expressing different types of emotions on the faces

His work is cubist, his work is labeled as orphic, and his work has elements of fauvism within it. If we look at him, we realize he influenced some Americans who by 1912 went back and founded a movement based on his style in America, except that they called it synchronism. Then he was invited by Franz Marc (1880-1916) to come east to Germany and exhibit with Marc's group. Franz Marc is one of the great German Expressionists of the early 20th century, who was a founder, together with Kandinsky (1866-1944) of a group called the Blue Rider (Blaue Reiter) in Munich and used color to symbolize emotion and feeling in a way that we recognize as derived ultimately from that principle established perhaps at first by Gauguin (1848-1903) back in the late 1880s (L39,
Jove, Jowisz, the gas planet, the stormy planet, whatever you call it, these are all names for the biggest planet in our solar system, the fifth planet from the sun, Jupiter. The Romans named this planet after their god of the sky and thunder. This planet has 318 times as much mass as the earth, and its diameter is 11 times the earth’s diameter. Since this planet is the fastest spinning (rotates in less than 10 hours), it is flattened at the poles and it is bulged at its equator. One Jovian year (the time it takes to orbit the sun), take 11.9 earth years!
Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and by far the largest mass object in the solar system of all the other planets. Jupiter is twice the size of all the other planets combined. It is as 318 times the sizes of earth. The distance that Jupiter orbits the sun is 778,330,000 km (Gallant pp154). The diameter is 142,984 km and the mass that it has is 1.900e27 kg. Jupiter is the fourth brightest object in the sky after the Sun, the Moon and Venus. Mars is some times brighter. Galileo discovered Jupiter in 1610(Gallant); another interesting fact is that Jupiter has 4 large moons. Which are known as the Galilean moons. They were named Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. The first mission that went to Jupiter was Pioneer 10 in 1973 and later
Throughout the vast history of art, historians can find connections throughout the centuries. Artists from the beginning of humankind have been inspired by the world around them. From the Apollo 11 stones to present day, history and culture have provided inspiration and have been the focus of various pieces. Examining artwork from the 15th-18th century, viewers can be shown a whole world that would be unknown to us without these artist’s contributions. History, religion, and cultural events have sculpted the art world, and we can observe this through many pieces during the 15th-18th centuries.
He tended to explore the darker aspects of life and death in his paintings. Rebelling against conventional ideas- divine intervention, Virgin Mary, and death- he came to create his own style, forcing civilization ahead, and forcing others to follow his path. His paintings show pleading through man's direct knowledge of God (Cunningham and Reich 1640). By revolting against the classical traditions, he created his own style, which other artists wished to portray also. Thus, he created a forward movement in the fashion of art and architecture.
