Andy Warhol's Subject Matter in the 1960s

...Andy Warhol’s Subject Matter of the 1960s During the 1960s, Andy Warhol decided to experiment with pop art, a style of art that developed in England during the mid-1950s and produced realistic variations of well-known, everyday objects. He moved away from his technique of the blotted line and instead used canvas and paint. At first he had difficulty choosing what he was going to paint, but throughout the course of his pop art era he focused on four main subjects: product paintings, cartoon paintings, movie stars, and death. His first versions of pop art were called product paintings. These paintings showed popular consumer items that were familiar to the average American person, such as Brillo soap pads, Coca-Cola bottles, and the most famous of all, Campbell’s soup cans. He chose products such as these because they were top-selling products in the United States and they were considered important, useful, and economical by consumers. He drew his inspiration from the leftover Campbell’s soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles that he used at lunch. Andy Warhol’s second type of paintings was drawn from comic strips and comic books. Examples of these cartoon paintings include Dick Tracy (1961) and Superman (1960). Although he had begun to produce these before the product paintings, this phase lasted only a short period of time – once he discovered that Roy Lichtenstein was also painting characters from comic strips (seen in Castelli’s Gallery), he decided that he needed to find a...

Comparison of Principles of Sale Contract Between Conventional and Shari’ah Laws

... existing goods or future goods. ‘Existing goods would refer to goods already possessed or owned by the seller, and may be either specific or goods that are agreed upon at the time of the contract is made. While specific goods would refer to goods identified and agreed upon at the time a contract of sale is made’[6]. Essentially, contract is ‘aqd in Arabic. In its literal sense it carries the meaning of linking together, tying, binding two ends of something in order to form a strong connection between the two[7]. However, in its technical spectrum it carries the meaning for which consequences for the object or subject matter exists as a result of there being a legally binding obligation. It is important to note that a promise does not carry any weight in terms of forming a contract because it is a mere promise for which the effect takes place in the future. A promise is only an implied agreement formed to provide consent for a transaction to occur in the future. Furthermore, according to the Sharia, if a contract is to be formed it should not only be approved by law and legally binding, a contract has to be recognized by the Sharia as well. In order to add more sense, currently a nation has its own laws that govern transactions but under Islamic principles, a contract ought to be recognized by the Sharia as well in addition or over and above the law that is currently in place. For an example, sale of alcohol between a seller and a buyer maybe valid...

... the sale was affected only at the till. The most important question in this situation was when was the contact made? When the poison was removed from the shelf or when payment was made at the counter? The answer depended on whether the display was an offer or an invitation to treat. The Court held that when the customer took the poison from the shelf, it was an offer by the customer and there would be no sale until the pharmacist had approved or accepted the offer. In the circumstances there was no contract. 2.2.2Advertisements An advertisement generally is only an attempt to induce offers and not an offer itself. However this is only the general rule as the exceptions to any major proposition of law. By referring the case Carlill v Smoke Ball Company , the Smoke Ball Company held an advertisement containing certain terms to get a reward constituted a binding unilateral offer that could be accepted by anyone who performed its terms. It is notable for its curious subject matter and how the influential judges (particularly Lindley LJ and Bowen LJ) developed the law in inventive ways. Carlill is frequently discussed as an introductory contract case, and may often be the first legal case a law student studies. The case concerned a flu remedy called the "carbolic smoke ball". The manufacturer advertised that buyers who found it did not work would be awarded £100, a considerable amount of money at the time. The company was found to have been bound by its advertisement...

... damages such as ordinary and special. Ordinary damages are those losses arising directly or naturally from the breach of contract in the ordinary course of events. For example, A contracts to B to buy his painting for a price of Rs. 20000. But A breaks his contract and as a result B had to auction his painting and could fetch only Rs. 15000. B can recover from A Rs. 5000 (the excess of the contract price over the actual sale price) by way of compensation. Special damages are those resulting from a breach of contract under some peculiar circumstances. Two conditions must be satisfied before the injured party can claim special damages from the guilty party. They are: 1) there must be a special loss caused to the injured party as a result of the breach of contract; 2) the existence of such a special circumstance must be within the knowledge of the parties at the time of entering into contract. 3. Suit for Specific Performances It is a very rare remedy seldom awarded by the courts in certain cases. Under this the guilty party is ordered specifically to perform what it had agreed to perform. For example, A agrees to sell a painting to B for a price. Later A refuses to do it. If so B can get the contract specifically performed and compel A to sell the painting. If the contract is personal in nature (e.g., Marriage, Employment), only compensation is given. Specific performance is a rare remedy and never granted when party himself/herself is involved in the performance...

... deficit theory states that some schools consider the culture of the place they are in, but they don’t consider about the international culture. Teachers should educate children without considering their cultural background. Teachers should not expect grades depending on racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. For instance, if some student didn’t excel with his\her grades, teacher should not come to conclusions about their performance. Instead, those students require more attention to improve their performance. As an example, I came with a school where the cultural boundary is limited. The native culture is followed by the schools where we used to live in. After some years we got transferred to other location where the culture is completely different when compared to our culture. School used satisfy their cultural requirement. Teachers used to treat students bases on their background. It became very difficult to reach teacher’s expectation. So schools and administrations need to strive to educate the upcoming generation by developing a new academic rules which reduces cultural boundary. Secondly, both parents and family environment supports children to succeed in his\her life. If student does not excel with a minimum grade there may be some reasons. For example, if the children is not interested in subject or home and school environment which reduces their interest towards academics. As per authors view vocabulary development plays an important role to build their skills......

‘Most Critics Shy Away from Labeling the History Boys a Comedy, Due in Large Part of the Subject Matter.’ to What Extent Do You Agree with This View?

... of the scene. Morality is about the acceptability and comes down to what you believe. The pupils and teachers are attempting to behave in a formal way which is comedic as it is quite the opposite. The headmaster definitely adds comedy. Hector states ‘L’Anglais, C’est interdit’ immediately gives the audience the intention of believing that Hector’s authority over the Headmaster is present as the reversal role of Hector’s control and the Headmaster is amusing. But, the gravity of the subject matter of the General Studies class is that is it inappropriate and the comfort of the teacher-pupil relationship is disturbing and wouldn’t be accepted today; so makes today’s audience feel agitated towards this behavior. Each one of the teachers is different. The ‘cool teacher’ manner of which Irwin has taken up and the sarcastic tone of the repetition of ‘sir’ is subtlety creating comedy. Irwin’s habits of teaching are comedic as he is focused on exams but starts to lose it with the boys which is ironic as he lies about where he has been to University but still tried to make the pupils looks as though they are in the wrong. Posner says ‘I’m a Jew, I’m small, I’m homosexual and I live in Sheffield. I’m fucked.’ This is a comic moment as throughout the play Posner seems to be able to mock himself in order to ease his pain. However, when we later learn about Posner's future, this moment no longer seems funny but instead tragic and an accurate foreshadowing of his adult life. Posner...

Simon is not liable to pay. B) Assuming that the agreement is binding, Simon would then be in breach of contract as he has not fulfilling this end of the contact, however keeping his age in mind and that the bike is not a necessary Simon would not be liable to pay. Case – Nash v Inham 2. Giving that Les is up to date with his payments and has complied with all parts of the policy then the Xexon Ltd would need to provide written explanation as to why they are refusing to pay failure to provide a written explanation would be a breach of contract as insurers have the duty of good faith to their policyholders. If that was the case Beth and Les would have grounds to seek compensation. Beth and Les would need to call one of the complaint lines, under Australian law an insurance company should have two in place. One would be internal and the other would be an external.
