Zeuxis and Parrhasius In the text, there was a  realist art competition  between the two rivals,  Zeuxis and Parrhasius.  Zeuxis produced a picture  of grapes while Parrhasius  created a realist picture of a  curtain. Pliny tells us the story of the  competition to magnify how  realistic some forms of art  can look, where even a  skilled artist such as Zeuxis  was deceived by  Parrhasius’ work.

    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.
