    “Do not let us oppose our canon of taste, however cultivated to a canon of morals held by a considerable number of sincere persons, however mistaken.”(81-86) Since art museums began to display statues and other forms of art that portray humans there has been many debates on whether certain pieces should be out for all to see or not. Who gets to decide what is displayed? Should it be the public opinion? The writer of The Atlantic Monthly firmly believes that the art shown in museums should be…

    In New York museums are buildings whose histories are tied into the fabric of the city. While some buildings of a different program might slide under the radar, a new museum could not be commissioned in the city without fanfare or skepticism or protest. The controversy can be credited to the fact that even in our contemporary time critics, architects, artists, and the sponsoring agents, and even the public all have different expectations on what a museum should be. It has been a challenge to…

    Art is based on influences and creative works, having the ability to visualize outside influences while manipulating them in the artist’s own imagination is truly stunning. Henri Matisse along with Pablo Picasso are few of many that could use that outside “influence” and depict it in a beautiful and subtle way. African sculptures and tribal masks caused a vast effect on both artists, and so each artist adopted the use of this non-Western art form in different ways. African art was introduced to…
