Sue Rische Art 1309 September 12, 2007 Does Size Really Affect How Art is Portrayed? Art can be expressed in many different ways. With pieces as small as a piece of sand to a gigantic building or statue. This paper will focus on two very famous pieces one being a small glass vase called the Portland Vase. The other being a massive painting titled Guernica by Pablo Picasso. Both no matter what their size have very significant meaning. The Portland vase stands at only 9 ¾ inches tall. Made from blue and white cameo glass the images depicted on the vase “have often been taken to represent Peleus, a mortal man, approaching Thetis , a divine sea nymph, they married by arrangement of the gods and their son was the great warrior Achilles” (Ramage 107). The illustration is very clear and depicting with seven white figures against a blue backdrop. The creator is unknown as it was made in Rome sometime between 30 and 20 BC. Since the 18 th century many copies have been made very painstakingly so many historians believe that it took no less than two years to complete the vase.

    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.
