Do you remember the response 1 I gave you on Wednesday? Here is a work from another student. I also need an around 100 words to reply his work. Just like which point do you agree or disagree with him, and why.
The images of Native Americans portrayed in Whites paintings are an exact replica of what I would assume Native Americans to have looked like during this time in history. White chooses to paint in color and I would believe that these pictures look more like photographs taken by camera than they do as hand-drawn paintings.
The difference between the images of Native Americans drawn by White and images from todays interpretation is that Whites paintings express a cultural sense of establishment. In photos from todays intepretation, we see Native Americans with different clothing (fashionable, jewelry) and are mainly carrying some form of hunting weapon. Whites photos eliminate the myths of what we assume is the typical culture of Native Americans.
Debrys changes affect the image in a way that adds more of a story or background. In contrast between Whites and Debrys images, Whites images are simplistic while Debrys images have more detail included. The perception of Debrys images from a European point of view allows the viewer to clearly see the facial expressions of the Native Americans and also grasp a story from looking at the backgrounds displayed in the image. Debry may have made these changes to enhance the lifestyle of Native Americans for Europeans to witness and hoped to accomplish a new and more realistic view of the lives of Native Americans.
