  1. Dear Bloggers,

    The art work looks amazing and looks like they is a war in the background or they is a person that chopping down trees. This painting is diffentent because the background looks amazing the trees looks real and it look like somebody took a photo.i think the painting was paint after when Eugene Von Gueranrd want to Heidelberg school because it looks so real. The story of the paint is maybe a war happen or somebody needs wood so their chop down trees. What I notice was some trees are chop down the background that looks amazing!

  2. Dear Bloggers,

    I think it’s different because there’s no people in it. It looks different because
    it’s like a scene.It was painted before because it looks like a jungle.I think this painting might be about a jungle.The story might be about all the animals and plants in it. I think that everything in the painting was in the right spot.

  3. Dear Bloggers,

    I think this painting looks really good, I think it looks like a Jungle. I think it’s different because there’s no people in the painting. It was painted before the Heidelberg school was built, because of all the trees and because it looks like a Jungle. I think the story is about how it looks like a kind of Jungle and then they build the Heidelberg school. I like how everything is placed in the right places.
