    major part of the Expressionism and Bauhaus movements (4). In 1911, he joined the Der Blaue Reiter along with Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and
    August Macke, now bringing him into the contemporary developments of modern art (4). His use of color in his works was drastically changed by a trip to Tunisia in 1914 and he created works based on landscape watercolors in Tunisia (4). He and Munch are very similar not only in color choices, but in their use of synesthesia in their works: Munch saw colors as sounds (or sounds as colors) and Klee saw music as distinct images, for music had a very large impact on his early life, for he played the violin as a child (5). Klee’s bright color use both came from inspiration of Munch’s use of intense color and his life changing trip. Klee for sure was influenced by many other artists, but he was more greatly impacted by Munch than most artists in the Post-Impressionist era. Klee was not the only European artist influenced by Munch in some way or another.

    The name "colosseum" was actually termed because the amphitheater was built on top of the Colossus, a statue glorifying the Emperor Nero that was constructed near the site.[9]
    The Romans as Masters of Architecture
    There is evidence that the Colosseum was constructed in two phases - the first being a wooden and tufa support system then a concrete fill-in afterward. This process of construction allows for structures to built to tall heights without as much foundation.[10]

    The painting itself is very easily dissected. There is no question about why the viewer may be uncomfortable while looking at it, because it is fairly obvious. Schiele has portrayed himself as thin, emaciated, and without hands or genitals. The color scheme of the painting makes it especially disheartening to look at, because it is very bland, yet somehow still imposing on the viewer. The lack of hands and genitals makes the figure seem much less like a human, and thus alien and disassociated. The main figure in the painting is suggestive of a crucified Christ, but it is a self-portrait, so Schiele may be suggesting his own martyrdom as an artist and deifying himself. Continued themes of narcissism are supported by the completely barren background, referring to this effect as a "dynamic estrangement". He was his own favorite model and had no problem in portraying himself as disturbingly haggard, with absolutely no regard for quelling the average spectator's appetite for the aesthetically pleasing.

    Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers: {https://uploads5.wikiart.org/images/marc-chagall/self-portrait-with-seven-digits-autoportrait-1913.jpg}
    This piece truly embodies Chagall's unique style of blending old cultural conventions into modernized interpretations. Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers (1912-1913) is done in a Cubist style, but the soft, dreamy colors he is known for he infuses within every shape. In the background, he shows views into two locations very significant in his life: Paris and Vitebsk. He literally shows how both places have been very important in shaping the course of his work and life. The view of Paris looks much more angular, as if representing the Cubist craze in the galleries. The view of Vitebsk feels dreamlike, airy, and almost like a scene out of a childhood fairy tale. Although he is dressed in the clothing of a modern Parisian man, he is painting a domestic scene with a large animal in the foreground, and a building with a cross on its roof in the background. The palette he holds in his right hand is covered in beautiful, blending colors that look as if they were used on the actual painting, not just the painting inside of the painting. Right next to the Russian cityscape reads the Hebrew letters Rosiye and Paris. The letters would have been read aloud in Yiddish. Jewish populations in eastern Europe have a long tradition of often speaking three or more languages, including Hebrew, Yiddish, and the native tongue of the region, often Russian. Chagall added an "e" to the end of the word for Russia, showing his rich linguistic heritage. Chagall frequently used this combination of letters and art to make stunning visual effects, similar to the impact of calligraphy from Islamic or Chinese texts. Although upon first glance this painting may look like a regular Cubist portrait, further analsysis shows incredibly detailed cultural ties. Chagall continues making connections to his work by showng himself with seven fingers. This detail's inspiration comes form a Yiddish expression, meaning that one has only tried their absolute best if they have attempted with "seven fingers." As this piece is on a large scale (4.13 feet by 3.52 feet), his ambitions in establishing himself as a prominent artist come through in his piece, the effort behind it done with "seven fingers!"

    ...
    Egon Schiele, an Austrian expressionist, was yet another very disturbed artist who made very disturbing art. He died at the age of 28 of the flu, surprisingly not by his own hand. He specialized in drawings, not paintings, and made hundreds of them over his short career, working up to the days before his death. Gustav Klimt himself, Schiele's mentor, stated that Schiele was "a much better draughtsmen than me." This piece is pencil with white paint and was a radical departure from typical portraiture of the time period. In fact, Schiele stressed that he wanted the viewer to look into rather than at his paintings further changing the way in which his work was viewed.
