On top of the table there is a cup closest to the chair. Next to that there is an open book, and on the right edge of the painting there is an empty plate on the table. If you look out the window, you will see a big green field. The reason this painting was so appealing to was because this field looks like a golf course to me. I...

To prove this theory, I looked at the painting and the first thing that caught my eye is the king. The human body is not too detailed but the actions th...

American society is drawn more to television programs and sporting events than to operas and art galleries. Very few paintings or other works of art would garner massive publicity in today's society. The artwork would have to stimulate the mind in a negative way to receive any attention at all. It would h...

    The title of the painting I choose is Birth of Venus. The title helps explain what is going on in the painting. The person looking at the painting knows that the woman in the shell must be Venus.
