When I originally was registering my class choices for the Fall 2016 semester, I considered English 111 to be an undemanding course that I could pass without a lot of effort on my behalf. I had no trouble passing prior English courses, years ago, so I felt this course would be similar. What I had not anticipated was how much I honestly could learn, such as: how you should properly cite sources, how you should suitably prove your thesis and how you can accurately set up the flow of a paper. Although, the most informative part of English 111, for me, has been absorbing all the information on the different styles of papers that can be written. I believe that recognizing the usefulness of distinctive varieties of papers will help me throughout
The artwork is a realistic portrait of a women. It is abstracted with asymmetrical balance with exotic and vibrant colors. As if the women is sitting in the corner with two
In Berthe Morisot’s painting, she uses colors ranging from blue to green to yellow to orange. She uses paint thinly but in big brush stroke but her color was dull. Her brush strokes are in a cross hatching manner. This method of cross hatching creates depth and shadows on the foreground. Intermixed, in her piece are signs of dry brush strokes. Morisot’s figure is enticing to the viewer by staring back at the onlooker. Morisot’s painting looks very freeing as that is what she longs for. She has a sketch like quality about her painting.
It was March 13, 1942. Yoshiko Imamoto was arrested by a pair of FBI agents because, like many other Japanese Americans during WWII, she was suspected of being a Japanese spy.
Cliff Barrows, who served as the head of music choir at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for about six decades, died on November 15 at the age of 93.
The beginning of an appreciation always starts with the most basic of trends in a painting. Though they seem axiomatic in nature, they are in reality very important and not as obvious if one is truly vigilant. The painting was slightly large and had dimensions that were approximately five feet by twelve feet. By looking closely at the painting using sharp eyes one could tell that Volaire used oil on the canvas. The framing used was apparently vintage (as I was told by a vehement supervisor, unhappy that I touched the frame) and came from the late seventeen hundreds. What was also learned was that vintage
In June 1911 Archibald Black a Melbourne doctor and art collector gave his daughter a wedding gift but it was no ordinary present.

The Paintings A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and The scream have several similarities and difference between them, but one difference that can be easily seen is the painting techniques.

The artist of A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte uses the technique of “Divisionism” or “Pointillism”. The artist uses small multidirectional strokes of colors in his painting
My first semester as a college freshman is finally coming to an end. This semester has been the start to a new chapter in my life and I am glad to have finally finished my first semester on a high note. Coming into college I never knew what things would be like and how would I adjust. All I knew is that I wanted to succeed and eventually graduate college. The courses I have taken this semester have had big impact on my learning and my future. Assignments that taught skills and lessons to be used in the future. I have learned skills such as being able to collaborate in groups because of projects in ASU 150.
The portrait is displayed horizontally with a gold trimmed frame. The subject is a female that looks to be in her early 20’s sitting upright on a large brown chair. If the viewer travels up the painting the first indication of the woman’s class is her satin, blue dress. The saturated blue shines and falls in the light like water. Paired with the dress are her exceptionally detailed endings to her sleeves. The lace is even painted as though it is translucent, allowing a little of the blue dress to show through the sleeve. Flowers throughout history have symbolized innocence of a woman and her virginity. The repeating theme of flowers, in the sleeve cuffs and ribbon) in the woman’s attired suggests her purity or innocent nature. Another very details section of the painting includes the corset/torso details. The sewing suggests texture in the torso with small beading in between. Towards the top of the chest in the center, the female seems to bear an extravagant, ribbon piece with a tear drop bead in the center. The light pink
Charity and philanthropy changed in the 17th and 18th century with the age of benevolence or good feelings, this began the common practice of policy and humanity, in which the more you gave the better you felt, this is shown through Barrow’s usage of puritanical belief, and Steele’s usage of feelings. In these works, both authors emphasize the point that the more wealth you give, the more labor you endure, and more you trade, it is then more likely that you would be are to develop sympathy and benevolence and be given access to heaven and receive a multitude of rewards in return.

This article review essay will focus on a particular piece of work from Michael Tornry and Catrien Bijleveld (2007). The material evaluated, “Crime, Criminal Justice, and Criminology in the Netherlands” come from the Journal of Crime and Justice, 35(1), 1-30. This essay will first incorporate a summary with detail of the country’s reputation, population, criminal justice system, crimes and incarceration trends, research, etc. Next, identify two positive elements the context reveals in the article and two issues that are negatively exhibited occasionally in the article. Then, provide a sum up of this essay. Overall, this article provided insight about the Netherlands regarding their government, criminal justice system, and the typically crimes that occurred in the country. However, the information is limited to the lack of certain areas in underdeveloped research and the evolution of the criminal justice policy. The article is not valuable if one is looking for a detailed explanation about why crime occurred in this country and who in particular participated in the crimes there. On the other hand, one can take away from this article that The Netherlands is a country that took pride in reaching out to the community through their government system. A spike starting in the 1970s in crime, incarceration, and their government which changed the country.
Post-impressionist paintings under the “IT’ theory alone were not considered art. To be able to accept post-impressionist paintings as art then required, “a revolution in taste.” The artworld, as Danto would agree needed to bring a new theory in order to
When starting my ENWR class, I saw it as a very pointless class that was a waste of my time. I looked at ENWR like it had nothing to truly offer me as a student at the University of Virginia. At the beginning of the semester after some time, my claim about the class being pointless to me started to feel true. I did not understand why we were doing the readings we did as well as why having was important. Throughout my time period in ENWR, I have learned a lot that I did not use to know that has improved my writing skills over a set amount of time.
