Terms - Propaganda - The activity of spreading particular ideas, opinions etc according to an organized plan, by a government; the ideas etc spread in this way -This is an important term because leaders, especially King Phillip IV hired artists to portray himself and his government in a positive way and make Spain look powerful and sophisticated. Paintings that use propaganda were meant to glorify a victory or royalty. -example: “Surrender of Breda” Diego Velazquez 1635 - Camera Obscura - Latin for “dark room” an ancestor of the modern camera in which a tiny pinhole, acting as a lens, projects an image on a screen, the wall of a room, or the ground-glass wall of a box. Often used as an aid by artists in the 17 th , 18 th and early 19 th centuries. -example: “Allegory of the Art of Painting” Jan Vermeer 1670-1675 Historians believe that Jan Vermeer used a camera obscura to help with the composition of his paintings.

    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.
