Question II Much like every age in history, both the Industrial Age and Era of Revolutions introduced a multitude of ideas to society. Despite the fact that the Industrial Age had more to do with a shift in production methods—while the Era of Revolutions was more about a shift in government types—each of these ages were intertwined with one another. The effects each era has had on the world is irrefutable. The Industrial Age was a transition from medieval-like ways of production to new and improved manufacturing processes. The increased use and efficiency of water power and steam power, as well as the development of machine tools, led to the rise of industrialization. Consequently, manufacturing shifted from manual production methods to machine-based…show more content…
Spanning the entire world, the Era of Revolutions was composed of the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Haitian Revolution, the Greek Revolution, and the slave revolts of Latin America. Many countries who were ruled by an absolute monarch became constitutional states or republics. Despite the violence and death occurring concurrently with war, the Era of Revolutions still ignited a spark for progress and growth. Although both of these eras look drastically different on the surface, they both have many things in common.

It was while writing one of my Mini Papers that I learned the most about him. His father was a very hard figure, almost to the point of abuse. He started going deaf at a very young age yet continued to write music, becoming one of the greatest composers of all time. He hated for his music to be performed in public. I also learned about one of Beethoven’s most famous works—Moonlight Sonata. The three movements are very distinct, each having their own tone. In addition, I also really enjoyed learning about the art of the Baroque Era. Of all the artists of the Baroque Era, Diego Velasquez was one of the most overlooked. The level of realism he was able to capture in his paintings was unheard of; it seemed almost like a photograph. His expert use of lighting added an air of complexity to his work. I also really enjoyed learning about Johannes Vermeer. Vermeer, with his master use of color and light, quickly established himself as one of the best Baroque artists of his
