The Zen Of Zinn: A Look At The First 3 Chapters Of A People's History - 1,047 words
Dr. Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States might be better titled A Proletarian's History of the United States. In the first three chapters Zinn looks at not only the history of the conquerors, rulers, and leaders; but also the history of the enslaved, the oppressed, and the led.

If the secularists and revisionists have their way then the United States will eventually become militarily weak and morally bankrupt and will be compelled to join the ranks of France, Germany and Canada in an equal new world order. Just think about it. Where would the world be and what would this planet be like without the moral clarity of the United States of America?

Leonardo Da Vinci In Milan According To Giorgione Vasari. - 1,254 words
... otted in the original French attempt at take-over by Charles VII, before his untimely death in 1494 (soon after Ludovicos official coronation no less). Consequently when Leonardo had arrived in Milan (c.1482), Ludovico was not recognised as the official duke, which in my opinion must have at least marginally affected his position as the court artist.

Vasari actually states that Leonardo found his place in Ludovicos court primarily through his musical abilities: Lionardo took his own instrument (a lyre), made by himself in silver, and shaped like a horse ...

The Life And Works Of Titian - 678 words
Titian (1477?-1576), was perhaps the greatest 16th-century Venetian painter and the shaper of the Venetian coloristic and painterly tradition. He is one of the key figures in the history of Western art.

In Venice, he studied with Gentile Bellini and then with Giovanni Bellini, but only the latter left a lasting imprint on his style. Influence of Giorgione The first documented reference to Titian dates from 1508, when he was commissioned to paint frescoes, with the Venetian painter Giorgione, on the exterior ...
