Robert J. England II HON 211 – David Gross Monday, October 23, 2006 Generally, when referring to those texts that we hold as truly great in the world, a matter of perspective is brought up in discussion. The concept of different people looking at a given topic with different viewpoints and different ideas of what the work symbolizes is both important and interesting as a topic, and I have known discussions about the perspective relating to every one of the texts we have covered in this sequence. Certainly, the paintings and artistry of the Dutch genre fall into this category as well. Our lecture from Prof. Michael Grillo on these great works focused partly on the new perspectives that the artists offered in their works; in fact, it was these new viewpoints on art that made the Dutch genre famous, as new perspectives were explored both in the subjects of the paintings and in the creation of the paintings as well.

    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.
