  1. #association: this picture instantly reminded us both of history class in high school seeing George Washington. He is on a white horse which shows that he is pure and good. We associate this with New England winters because of all the snow. #ed105

  2. #emotion: this piece portrays the emotions that the people in the painting are feeling.  The anguish and terror on their faces is visible because of the shark in the water. The people are reaching for each other desperately trying to help each other but their hands never meet.  The vulnerability of the man in the water is depicted by him being the only nude one in the painting. The size of the piece also adds to the emotional aspect of it. #ed105
