Walter Dean Myers, born Walter Milton Myers, was born on August 12th, 1937 and died on July 1st 2014. He was an American author for children’s book. He wrote over 100 books including picture books and nonfiction books. Two of his most famous books arguably if not his most famous books are Monster (1999) and Fallen Angel (1988).
According to academic journal Enhancing Accountability and Trust with Independent Investigations of Police Lethal Force by Walter Katz, local prosecutors are not immune from bias. When a cop is under investigation the prosecutors are put in a situation because they usually work together. Usually the police officers are giving the prosecutors all the evidence when dealing with a normal case so when the situation is reversed and the prosecutor must indict a cop it sometimes put them in a bad situation. “Prosecutors face ‘an impossible conflict of interest between their desire to maintain working relationships and their duty to investigate and prosecute police brutality (Walter, Katz 239).” That statement supports the idea that there should not
Conservation Study While there were several works of art that I had liked, the artwork and album finally chosen from Noelle Ocon’s album for this particular study was The Armorer’s Shop by David Teniers the Younger and Jan Brueghel the Younger. The goals for the study of this painting were to
In the paper I would like to focus on a painting that is almost 120 years old, however it appears provocative even today - in the world of contemporary art, where there seems to be no room left for astonishment. What I find so special about this beautiful painting is the technique and the artist’s vision of the scenery. Even though the second half of the 19th century was the time of rebelliousness in the art world, Henri Matisse managed to find his own niche and create his own style of painting. While “Still Life with Oranges II” appears as a primitive piece of work that neglects canonic rules of proportion, shade and volume, it opens doors to the personal world of the artists, where there is a place for imagination and flirting with the audience. Bright colors and swirls of brush strokes celebrate life and create an uplifting mood, which we often under appreciate in a painting.
First of all, I would like to talk about the escapade of Larry's in details and how did he become famous. I would like to illustrate my information as follows:
This painting by Thomas Cole depicts light blue sky, the morning light, and the wispy clouds suggest a calm and peacefulness. This is not thethreatening, forbiddingwilderness of the chauvinists. Instead, it is a delightful place of quiet deliberation. It is composed of a meandering river with some vegetation on its banks, all in the background. The mountains and the broken trees depict the sublime nature. They are created focusing on the power
One of the most visually intriguing pieces in the exhibit is the Portrait of Père Bouju by Maurice de Vlaminck. It was painted around the year 1900 by the French artist. It is not particularly beautiful by normal standards. At first glance, the texture of the paint stands out more than any other feature. It has very strongly defined brush strokes and thick paint in portions, especially the face of the man and the background. The lines in the paint are mostly straight, short, and wide with some that are thinner and wavy, like the smoke. The man is in the center of the canvas, he is the only discernable image, and he is almost devoid of detail aside from the face and the hat. The colors are almost entirely neutral aside from the red scarf. In this oil on canvas portrait the man is wearing a
I disliked many characters in this play, because of their greediness. Walter Lee Younger wanted the insurance check for his investment in a liquor store, while his sister Beneatha Younger wanted the money for her schooling. Lena Younger “Mama,” was the one who received the check in the first place, and she wanted to spend the money on something that would benefit the whole family, not just her. She had the biggest heart out of all the characters in the play. The character that I hated the most was Walter Lee Younger. In the beginning of the play, Walter Lee Younger spends trying to convince his mother to invest in the liquor store because he believes that it will fix his family’s financial problems. He kept pressuring his “mama” throughout
This oil painting on a canvas grabbed my attention for various reasons. The first reason is that of the date. This painting was created around 1762. The quality of the painting amazed me because it remains in perfect condition, yet it was created two-hundred and fifty-five years ago. The painting was established by Allan Ramsay. Ramsay did an outstanding job on this painting. He incorporated many elements and principles of art into the masterpiece, which also made this piece a highlight of the museum.
Van Gogh stares at guests with such solemn eyes that seem to be all colors at once. Claude Monet takes you to the French country side that are covered in swaying pastures of yellow wildflowers and haystacks. The relaxed posed of Renoir’s nude female models shows the realistic ideas the impressionism artists had for the future of art. They painted the true colors of the world around them and present them to us as we pass through the hallways. There is a muffled quietness in the exhibit as everyone observes the sound the paintings reflect as though trying to here the gentle breeze in Monet’s painting of water lilies. Everyone gathers to gaze at George Seurat’s meticulous work that covers an expansive wall which barely contains the impressive effort. Cameras flash trying to capture the unique and awe-inspiring talent and dedication that made Seurat famous but none are able. No one can truly capture the detail and dedication that all artists put into their work through photos, you have to stand right in front of it to come
The exhibit “Collage” contains works by Merle Axelrad which can be located in downtown Sacramento ARTHOUSE Gallery and Studios. The artist's fabric collages are in several locations as a private collection, they are also placed in a corporate and civic area (ARTHOUSE), she worked in sculpture and sewn collages, however in this exhibit she is great for the fabric work. Axelrad collages are influenced by the real nature and landscape she encounters.Three pieces of her fabric work: River 2, River 3 and Sierra Water reflect her style as modern and elaborated, making her unique from other artists. Each individual collages she made has been carefully arranged, layered, pinned and sewn together (Axelrad) in order to depict the image of nature
Augustus Edwin John was a well-known Welsh painter. He was born on the 4th of January in 1878 in Wales. Most of all I am amazed by his early work, the chalk drawing of Grace Westry. I am impressed by the dreamy mood of this drawing. The author of this work was able to show all the beauty of human nature. This drawing makes me think about the past times, when Augustus John was creating his works. This portrait looks like more attractive, than the person in real life, because the creator admires every trait of Grace, he shows her her breath, her thoughts, her life. Frankly speaking, a real talented painter should feel each muscle, each cell of skin, each movement of lashes, each heart's impulse. To be honest, I reckon, that Augustus John
A secondary important figure in defining and examining the absolute film movement within Germany during the 1920s is Walter Ruttman. Unlike Richter he began as a student of architecture and graphic design, which shaped his identity as an experimental filmmaker and accounts for the prominence of shapes and lines within his films. He began his career as filmmaker directly after his release from a hospital in Berlin for treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder caused by his experiences in WW1. His works are said to be the very first examples of completely abstract film, meaning that they are composed solely of the arrangement of various forms (geometric and arbitrary) with no outside reference to anything or to any particular meaning. His first
Using natural phenomenon as a starting point for abstraction, Mark Grotjahn’s paintings straddle the polarities of artifice and nature. His painting, Lavender Butterfly Jacaranda over Green (Fig. 2), expresses his fascination with nature. Transferring the experience of observation to an intrigue of creative possibility, Grotjahn harnesses the mysticism of nature through aesthetic formality.
