Kaitlyn Davis IGE 120 Sandra Posey October 17, 2006 Monument to Mignard The painting I choose was a European, 18 th century, piece that contained, what looks like, angels and cupid upon a pedestal with a demon above them with a scaffold. I don’t hate this piece. I feel it is very beautiful, but I do not understand it. I understand that there is the conflict of good versus evil, and how evil can be present, but not seen. The “saints or angels” are seen to be looking elsewhere. The artist is trying to show how great and invincible they are in the eyes of God. They are also being shown in a light. The artist has painted them to be God like creatures. The kids are not looking the same way, but to themselves. Maybe to show that they are still vulnerable, and that they do not understand the difference between good and evil. Now there is also a swan with one child and I feel this also shows purity of all four of the “angels or saints”, because of the color, but also because of how the swan is placed in his arms.

    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.
