Paint The Last Supper By Ludovico And Michelangelo

Good Essays
Leonardo’s Shadow takes place in the city of Milan that was a major city in the Renaissance in which the book’s time period is in (1497). In Milan, lives Leonardo da Vinci, who is a famous painting and is expected to paint the Last Supper for the duke (Ludovico Sforza) and church. The main character in the book is Giacomo, who is Leonardo’s servant.
This book is about a boy named Giacomo who lost all of his memories and is the servant of Leonardo da Vinci. The main storyline is how Leonardo won’t finish the Last Supper and his servant Giacomo tries to help him finish/motivate him to finish the painting by Easter because the Pope is coming to town. Giacomo keeps asking Leonardo to teach him to paint, but he refuses every time. Giacomo found

I consider them the least admirable characters in the book because they act very stubborn, selfish and full of pride; the kind of pride where they think they are more important and better than others. I see in Leonardo when he wouldn’t finish the Last Supper and when he thought he was the best painter in Italy and Michelangelo was not even close to how good he was. This showed the characteristics of subbornish and overconfidence in Leonardo da Vinci. On the other hand, I think the most admirable characters in the book are Caterina and Messer Tombi (the paint maker). I believe these characters are admirable because they are/were both very kind people helping out Giacomo. Caterina was always nice to Giacomo and helping him with his chores. I consider her as Giacomo's “mom”. I really like Caterina because she was always caring and worrying about other people like Giacomo before herself. While Messer Tombi is teaching Giacomo about colours and how to make paint. Therefore helping Giacomo when no one else would, Leonardo wouldn’t teach him how to paint and some merchants stopped giving him …show more content…
Owl Keeper is about a boy that is locked inside a house because he was told that he is allergic to sunlight. So he never stepped outside and was like trapped. Just like how Giacomo is owned by Leonardo and is trapped with him until he dies. So in the Owl Keeper, this boy feels unless and like he can’t do anything. Like how Giacomo feels pointless and he is just a piece of trash to Leonardo and isn’t important. But every night in darkness, this boy goes out and sees a silver owl; the silver owls were banned and all burned to death in the Owl Keeper. So this boy feels pointless just like Giacomo. Until one day he is told that he will be the leader of these creatures that will go to war. So he has been locked up in darkness so is eyesight in the dark is perfect. But this boy doesn’t want to be the leader of these creatures because they look like lumps of skin and kill silver owls, where his silver owl is his best friend. And he also doesn’t want to lead these creatures because his ruler is bad just like the Duke in Leonardo’s Shadow. So everyone is scared of this boy’s town and the ruler of this town is mean and does bad things, just like Kim Jong Un in Korea. Kim Jong Un “brainwashed” the people in Korea just like how the ruler in the Owl Keeper brainwasher the people living in his town. So this boy found his purpose in life just like how Giacomo found out that he might be an alchemist. Which could give Giacomo purpose to his

    After coming out of a period where he hated art and considered becoming a minister, Vincent van Gogh taught himself art from books, never going to a formal academy. However, his art never took off, forcing him to move into his brother Theo’s home in 1886. Interestingly, Theo was known to talk to his brother about the great work that Impressionists, like Monet, had done.

Unfortunately, the instability of his career forced van Gogh into a mental decline around 1888, into a time when he would eat paint and drink turpentine.…

    “ (Of Mice and Men pg.68) It proves how all the workers on the ranch exclude Crooks from everything mainly because he is black.

Another example is when Crooks says darkly, "Guys don 't come into a colored man 's room very much." (Of Mice and Men pg.75) It shows how Crooks is isolated from everything because of his color. Crooks has a separate room and is very lonely because no one bothers talking to him.…
