Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonardo da Vinci were considered masters of the arts. Both men communicated their visions through their works or masterpieces. I will attempt to compare and contrast two works of art, one by Michelangelo and the other by Leonardo.
The masterpiece I chose from Michelangelo Buonarroti is The Last Judgment. This work was painted on the alter wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Michelangelo started this work in 1508 and finished in 1512. (Art and the Bible, nd) It represents the second coming of Christ and the final judgment of God. The picture presents Christ as judge and condemns everyone on his left to eternal fire, as he raises those on his right to heaven to be with the saints and angels. The picture radiates out from the center figure of Christ. Originally all the people were painted naked, but after quite a bit of controversy they were painted over with veils and loincloths. The Last Judgment is monochromatic and flesh tones and sky colors dominate the work. Yellow, orange, green and blue are scattered throughout the painting. Michelangelo focuses on the action of human creatures quite different than Leonardo’s emphasis on perspective such as birds in flight. His art enhances the naturalism and he had a great skill at portraying profound emotions that make this painting striking. The painting is sort of obscure and has many different meanings. (Michelangelo’s Last Judgment: The Response)

The second work of art I chose is the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. He started this masterpiece in 1503 and finished it in 1506. It was painted with oil paints and it was painted on wood. Leonardo was one of the most famous painters of all time. The Mona

Lisa is also one of the most well-known…...

...Unit 3 Individual Project Art Appreciation HUMA 205 June 25, 2013 Abstract I will attempt to compare and contrast two pieces of art work from the renaissance period. Out of our textbook I chose a piece by Masaccio, The Holy Trinity. The piece of art I chose from a website is from Leonardo da Vinci called Madonna and Child. Both pieces of art are masterpieces of the early renaissance period. Renaissance Paintings and the Artists For many Europeans the renaissance was a period of achievement and worldwide exploration. It was a time of discovery. A time of new and renewed understanding that changed the medieval times and laid the foundation for modern society. Masaccio became the first major painter of the Italian Renaissance. He greatly influenced the art of painting in the renaissance. He moved Italian painting away from the idealizations of Gothic art and presenting his work as a more profound, natural, and humanist world. The Holy Trinity was the last painting he did and is considered one of his greatest masterpieces. Masaccio constructed his masterpiece with simplicity and naturalistic, three dimensionality. (The Holy Trinity by Masaccio, nd) The Holy Trinity was one of the first paintings Masaccio used the linear perspective. Linear perspective is a mathematical system used for creating three dimensional shapes and figures on a flat surface. He used perspective to make the illusion of three dimensions. The perspective lines draw the...

Which features or functions of MS Word do you find particularly useful as a college student, and why? I’m still learning how to use MS Word 2010. I have mainly used MS Document to write outlines and research papers. When I have typed up outlines, it seems to be pretty easy. It automatically gives the options between bullets, numbering or multilevel listing. I’m sure with this class I will be able to learn this program successfully. 2. Which features or functions of MS Word do you think you will use most often as a professional in your chosen discipline after graduation? I’m not sure exactly but I’m sure that I will use the tools that I will learn. As of right now I use MS Word to make flyers for advertising my business. 3. How can Word help you with producing correct APA documents? Do you think Word’s APA features are useful? Why or why not? Word has helped in many ways. The autocorrect feature is great when I misspell words or misuse sentence endings. It also lets me know if the sentence I typed is fragmented.

...Discussion Board Unit 2 Comp101/1401B Introduction to Computers A. Questions for weekly discussions and conversations. 1. Why are clip art libraries useful, not only in Word , but also in PowerPoint? Clip art libraries are useful to show pictures to your words. They are great for making your documents or slide shows more exciting. Clip art actually can draw attention to get the readers to focus on the project or document itself. 2. What are the copyright laws that must be followed when using clip art? The right of legal use of clip art depends on the intent of the copyright owner. Copyrighted clip art is off limits for commercial use unless you have a written agreement with the copyright holder. For instance, if you sold Nike products in your store, you would have the right to use their logo for advertising. If you didn’t sell Nike products then it would be illegal for you to use their logo without permission. 3. When might it not be appropriate to use clip art? Clip art probably wouldn’t be appropriate in legal and professional documents. It wouldn’t be professional if clip art was used. B. If you have not used clip art before, find 2 sites on the internet, and provide at least 1 example of when each site could be used in a practical way. Include the type of clip art found at the sites, including categories or special interest areas for the site. The first site that caught my eye was ClipartHeaven.com. The clip art ranges......

After reading and watching the M.U.S.E videos and the other sources in the learning materials, I feel that all the features and functions to PowerPoint will be useful. I have learned that your PowerPoint presentation should not be too flashy and the sound to your presentation should be appropriate. I have learned that you can add tables from Excel and Word and also add animations too. I think as long as you put together a great presentation with information that when you add clipart and sound that meets the presentation and is appropriate the presentation will be amazing. 2. From your experience of sitting through PowerPoint (PPT) presentations, what are some things that presenters have included in their PowerPoint Presentation that you feel are annoying and should not be included in a “good” PPT presentation? In my business there are tons of PowerPoint training presentations. What I feel is most annoying is pointless information. I’ve seen some that give me information but then put information in that has nothing to do with the subject of the presentation itself. Another thing is cartoon graphics.

What are some of the main applications for Object Linking and Embedding (OLE)? OLE 1.0 was released in 1990 by Microsoft; it was the evolved from the Dynamic Data Exchange. A couple of the main applications for Object Linking and Embedding are Microsoft Document and Microsoft Excel. The reason for linking and embedding is maintaining active links between two documents or embedding one type of document within another document. Object Linking is a linked component that stores the path to the original data which is often in a separate fie. Embedding is using the Paste command in a container application that can create an embedded component or an embedded item. 2. Under what circumstances might you use OLE to embed an Excel spreadsheet in a Word document? Why might OLE be better than “copy and Paste”? You might use OLE to embed an Excel spreadsheet in a Word document when you want to work within the original document. It makes it easier to be able to work with. OLE is better than copy and paste because of OLE; you can create a chart in Excel, copy it, and paste the copy into a document in Word. But you can also go beyond the copy-and-paste operation. You can link the copied chart back to its original file in Excel (the source file). Then, if you make changes to the original file, the changes are automatically made to the...

Explore beyond your first results, and look for information that interests you and that you did not know about making effective presentations. I had found this website while researching steps to effective presentations (http://presentationsoft.about.com/od/powerpointtips/qt/planningppt.htm). This site focuses more on the before steps before you start actually designing your PowerPoint presentation. I thought that this was useful because in order to create a PowerPoint presentation you should be prepared and have your information ready In Gathering your Information they used a saying that caught my attention (Kiss-Keep It Simple Silly). I thought that was a good reminder to not overdue yourself on the presentation. Also I thought that sticking with 3 or 4 main points for your presentation was a good tip because if you use too much information then your presentation will lose the audience’s attention. I found this website Speaking about Presenting at (http://www.speakingaboutpresenting.com/design/effective-powerpoint-presentations/). It caught my attention with the phrases that they used. Avoid cheesy effects and focus on simple design basics. This site also had tips on viewing the PowerPoint presentation pertaining to the backgrounds of the......

...ACCT311 Unit3 - Discussion Board Consider the following scenario: Jim’s Music Company uses LIFO for inventory, and the company’s profits are quite high this year. The cost of inventory has been steadily rising all year, and Jim is worried about his taxes. You are Jim's accountant and you suggested that the company make a large purchase of inventory to be received during the last week in December. You explained to Jim that this would reduce his income significantly. Jim still doesn't understand the logic of your suggestion. Explain how the purchase would affect taxable income. (1 paragraph) Is this ethical? Jim is uncertain about the appropriateness of this from a legal and ethical perspective. Give your opinion and explain the ethical implications of making the purchase. (1 to 2 paragraphs) I would tell Jim that if he was to make the large purchase close to the end of the year, it would leave his taxable income lower due to the unsold inventory. There wouldn't be anything unethical about this transaction because it would all be recorded into the proper categories. I work for a large corporation and in my department; my manager tells me that we need to buy all we can during the last quarter. She tells me that this will help our projected budget for the upcoming year. I feel that this is a similar situation.

...The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation. The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

...ART 110 – Art Appreciation Assignment #3 Chapter 3 – Visual Elements 1. What is the style of the assigned work? Define the style. The assigned work is The Liberation of the Peon, a Political Protest piece by Diego Rivera. This piece shows a beaten slave’s body being covered up while his master’s farm is burned. It was intended to demonstrate the anger, fear, and corruption in Mexico in 1931. 2. What is “line”? A line is simply defined in our textbook as an extension of a point. There are many different variations and characteristics of a line. A line can be straight and solid, curved or dotted, lines can cross, they can be fold or faded, and help create the appearance of movement, lighting effects, shading, and so much more. 3. How is line used in the assigned work? Diego Rivera uses line for smoothness and texture in The Liberation of the Peon. His lines show the hair on the horses manes, the smoothness of the naked slaves body, the texture of the ground in the field they are standing in, and shows the transparent nature of the flames coming from the farm house in the background. 4. What is “shape”? Our textbook defines shape as, “the expanse within the outline of a two-dimensional area or within the outer boundaries of a three-dimensional object.” The word shape is described as being interchangeable with the words mass and form. I would describe shape as being the form that an object takes. Water can have a shape though that shape can change...
