For someone like myself who has never had much interest in art, even I was awe-struck at the picture “Christ and the Disciples at Emmaus” in the Carnegie Museum of Art. In the painting, Jesus is depicted sitting at a table with his disciples. Taking up most of the wall, the enormous portrait almost did not seem real with virtually another worldly glow coming from Christ. The vibrant colors and realism of the work made it a sight your eyes could not miss, and it had me glued to the spot for at least ten minutes. In the silence of the museum, I pondered my religion and how it has changed in the modern world with new discoveries and scientific breakthroughs. Despite the experience I had with it in the museum, when looking at the picture on my phone, it did not capture me in the same way at all. Blurry and scaled down to two inches wide, “Christ and the Disciples at Emmaus” was reduced to just a normal work that failed to capture my mind in the same way. There was something about viewing it in a museum, where they revere the art like it is the work of a god, that makes you appreciate it so much more. In the silence there looking upon the magnificence of the painting, you could explore your inner self and have new revelations that you would never have expected.

one religion operated by the government.
Totalitarianism severely limits cultural liberty, which is the right to practice, perform and express other values through art, books, dance, etc. The government of East Germany attempted to form public opinion by censoring the media, even to the extent of defining what is "good" art and literature. In the 1970s and 1980s, in an attempt to allow some openness towards music, the East German government regulated Discos by mandating that sixty percent of…

But the amazing growth of our techniques, the adaptability and precision they have attained, the ideas and habits they are creating, make it a certainty that profound changes are impending in the ancient craft of The Beautiful.

Joel Penkmans art, the focus is in the centre. What I love about this image is the colour and shades! The brush strokes used make it look unrealistic but also so effective. The image is of 2 little sauce packets that are tend to be used at fast food places look so still and hasn’t been used which signifies separation from its background.
