Artistic expression and communication presented the realities and illusions of the old west, some of which attracted various people there, while keeping others at home. Beginning with art, one of the main painters of these years (1860-1900) was Frederick Remmington. He painted over 2,700 pictures of the frontier. One example

Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes is one of the most famous romantic painters. Born in the town of Fuendetodos, near Sargasso, on March 30, 1746 to a middle-class family, Goya even at young age had a will of his own. He was not just a painter, but an adventurous young man. At the age of fourteen, he became an apprentice of Jose Luzan, although, as Goya himself admitted, his true masters were, besides nature, Velazquez and Rembrandt. At twenty-four, he managed
Monet
Monet
Monet IF MONET IS REGARDED AS THE IMPRESSIONIST par excellence, one must admit that both Degas and Renoir also have their own special qualities.

Some Things Can Only Be Learned Through Time
Some Things Can Only Be Learned Through Time In Linda Pastan's poem Ethics, the speaker recounts a moral dilemma that her teacher would ask every fall, which had been haunting her for a long time. The question was if there were a fire in a museum / which would you save, a Rembrandt painting / or an old woman who hadn't many / years left anyhow? This question contributes to the theme that ethics and moral values can be only learned from the reflection, which comes through experience and matu

Rembrandt van Rijn Ashley Richardson 2/28/04 Mrs. Mignin What would you think of an artist that painted two thousand three hundred paintings in sixty three years? I would say that's pretty amazing. Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was regarded by many as the greatest painter, in the 1600's and in Dutch art in general.
