    1,913 words
    Victorian Life Through Color The use of color in Victorian literature and art has gone far beyond simple description to form it's very own sort of diction. Whether reading Victorian prose or looking at a Pre-Rapaelite painting one is drawn in and deeply affected by the arrangement and combination of it's colors. In the two of these mediums, each color is both powerful and used precisely either to represent a trait or emotion or to compliment other colors to form a greater representation of an id...

    Picasso vs. Perugino The Painting Of The Female The Picasso and the Perugino paintings in the art book are in no way really similar; they are infact very different aside from the fact that the main piece of the painting is a female.

  • Picasso's Paintings

    The Mystery of Picasso The strokes, the marks, the black, the white, and of course the colors-amazing! Pablo Picasso was a true genius in his artwork.
