Battle on a Bridge
Oil on canvas
Seen at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art
From the accompanying description:
Here, a battle before an ancient seaport disrupts the simple life of shepherds in the countryside. The battle is possibly that between the emperor Constantine and his rival Maxentius on the Milvian bridge near Rome. However, instead of providing specific historic detail that would identify the conflict, Claude emphasizes the contrast between human turmoil and nature’s tranquil beauty.
I pointed the tiny group of people out to the two friends who were with me, and they had to make a conscious effort to realize that, no, that is not just a white man who has been placed in very dark shade… It was cool to watch it dawn on them! Also, do the three in the front look like a multiracial family?
(This is one of two pieces I will be submitting from my trip to this amazing museum.)
gay marriage is legal in the sims god damn it real world sort your shit out
lets talk about sims for a minute
in sims, your appearance doesn’t matter. you can pursue what career you want and not get paid less for being a certain gender. you can change your sim’s gender or life at any time. what other sims care about is if you’re nice or if you kick over their gnome.
also men in sims 2 can get pregnant by aliens
That other people can sleep 6 or 8 hours a night baffles me. I need 9 or 10 hours to feel rested.
