    The joke has been made by some that if prostitution is indeed the world’s oldest profession, than pornography must be the world’s oldest expression.

    Matisse’s Bonhuer de Vivre or Joy of Life as it is best known and Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon it is quite evident that these paintings were influenced by Paul Cezanne’s The Large Bathers. All three of these paintings capture an uncertainty and vagueness in their subject matter and what they are trying to convey. Bonhuer de Vivre by Matisse, was one of the first paintings of its kind. He used such vivid and bright colors to exemplify his subjects along with the imbuing of spatial and…

    Examples Of Ambiguity

    • 2 Pages

    In some contexts, ambiguous messages are definitely unethical. I don’t consider ambiguity in personal relationships to be severely unethical, because minor noise disruption in the transactional model and homonym usage, language disparity, etc. is normally expected. However, when looking at communications on an international scale, ambiguity can lead to disastrous results in foreign relations and the trust placed in governments by their country’s people. The novelist George Orwell, who wrote…
