addition to angering his father, Asher paints images that also his mother and the Jewish community are unhappy with. These pictures started with nudes and later lead to drawing his mother on a crucifix. When his parents see this in the exhibit, they immediately leave disappointed. Along with his parents, several art critics and his community do like his art; but it was important for Asher to draw this painting because it makes him a good artist, being able to express himself without feeling any responsibility to anyone. Like any other person, it’s favorable for Asher to live his life in a fashion that pleases him, making him satisfied him for attempting to fulfill his most desired goals. From a young age Asher dreams of becoming a great artist, but his father does not approve because of his ideals of being a Jew. Throughout his life, he stumbles several times on the path of becoming an artist, trying to please the important people in his life before himself. For example, to make Asher’s father happy, he attempts to stop drawing. During this period of time, Asher suffers so much that he feels that he must begin to draw again. Therefore one should live to satisfy yourself rather than suffering for others. One should easily be able to accept Asher’s reasoning and realize that it is beneficial for him to live in the manner in which he desires.

    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.

    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.
