Talia Kottler The power of art is to express a message, a meaning that’s more vocal than any amount of words strung together could ever accomplish. I found the painting of the slave ship by Joseph Mallord William Turner to capture more than words could say, which is why I found it the most striking. Looking through all my options to choose from, I found the decision quite easy because yes the other options were beautiful, but this painting did more than represent a message. The slave ship brought years of past present and future history of a group of people in one picture. Although this painting was done in 1840, the misery the African Americans endured during these times in history is unspeakable- just like this painting. When you first glance at the painting, you immediately notice the bright brooding colors casted over the water symbolizing the sunset and the approaching typhoon. The matter of perceptive is essential in the first few moments when you glance at it because the colorful colors can throw the audience off presenting a positive illustration of what’s behind it. When the first moments pass, you are able to look down at the bottom left and right corners to discover horror and cruelty shoved into locked boxes and thrown into the sea along with the key. What’s the most important aspect about history is that if we don’t learn about it, then it has every chance for it to repeat itself.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
