Paintings Inspired by Love

Love has inspired artists since the days when they drew on cave walls with wooly mammoth blood. Van Gogh even cut off his ear for one lucky lady. How romantic. So, in the spirit of V-Day, (that's V for Valentine's, not Veterans) here's Kidzworld's picks for best mushy paintings. (See if you agree).

Dance at Bougival by Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Dance at Bougival by Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Renoir was a French painter who is associated with the Impressionist movement. Impressionism is a style of painting from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Impressionists tried to accurately paint reality in terms of light and color. This painting is one of three dance-themed paintings created by Renoir in the summer of 1883.

Le Printemps by Pierre Auguste Cot.

Le Printemps by Pierre Auguste Cot

Apparently Pierre Auguste was a popular name in 19th century France, but that's beside the point. Cot painted in a style known as Beaux Arts Classicism. Beaux Arts Classicism is a type of ornate painting style, inspired by ancient art. It's named after L'ecole de Beaux Arts (the school of fine arts) in Paris, where Cot studied painting. The title of this painting, Le Printemps, is French for The Spring.

Putto's Kiss by Emile Munier.

Putto's Kiss by Emile Munier

Emile Munier also painted in the Beaux Arts Classic style. Emile Munier became well known for his paintings of children and cherubs. A "putto" is a winged child - like an angel or cherub. How cute is this painting?

Sunset by Norman Rockwell.

Sunset by Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell was an American realist. His illustrations were simple and to-the-point, yet they never failed to evoke emotion. His illustrations appeared on the cover of more than 80 magazines and in classic children's books like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Sunset is a perfect example of the country charm that made Rockwell's art truly American.

Venus and Sailor by Salvador Dali.

Venus and Sailor by Salvador Dali
Salvador Dali is famous for his bizarre, fantastical, surrealist paintings. He described his style as "concrete irrationality." Whatever you call it, Dali's paintings are beautiful, but most definitely whacked-out. The Venus and Sailor is actually among Dali's more tame paintings.

No one is given a gun. A person has to acquire a permit, and then has to buy a gun for themselves.  Okay, yes, mental health is an obvious issue. But it needs to be for specific mental health problems. It can't be just because someone has a mental illness, because many mental illnesses won't effect the operation and use of a gun, or make it more likely for a person to hurt someone else with a gun. I support background checks which would include mental health history, but only if it's done right. Similarly, the guy who killed 49 people in Orlando was taken off the FBI watchlist. This tells me that there are flaws with the way that the watchlist is currently being used. Once that system is redone, then we can restrict those on it from buying firearms. But at its' current success rate? Not a chance.  And it's not about what's necessary...well to an extent it is, but hear me out. Weapons are used for self defense. No matter how many gun laws you have, criminals will still use firearms in their crimes. Citizens require at least an equal amount of protection that criminals use to break the law.  In other words, if you were to be the victim of gun violence, would you rather have with you a knife or a gun? Would you honestly bring a knife to a gun fight?  First of all, I agree with you. Mental health is definitely an issue! But together these issues can be addressed!!!! And as I said earlier, we can control our weapons. The government can create a harder way to get a gun or any weapon. Look at criminal records!!!! Even before getting a permit, or a license, CHECK THE RECORDS!!! This will help prevent these mass shootings.

The amendmant is there for a reason. Weapons are useful for protection. Protection is going to keep us alive. The human population, as a nation, and as a world! If we take away our weapons now we are all dead! We don't want that.  Now, killing 50 people in the Orlando shooting. That is just not right at all. It was not the gun's fault, it was the person. Same thing with the death of Christina Grimmie. Now, I personally believe that we should not take guns away, but we should find a harder process into buying a gun or some other weapon, and we should be trained properly! Look at people's criminal records, look at their other records. I don't care! As long as we still have protection, but less mass shootings! Omg, so true.
