For another resource, see " Rhythm, Rhyme, and Scansion Made Easy ." List ranges from Jackson Pollock to Jasper Johns, plus much more. Giacometti’s attitude to his work can also be seen as having links with existentialism. 44 as Giacometti called it, the squalid state of his studio and working conditions created an image of the driven artist who despite fame, abandons material comforts for the quest of his goal. (See fig.14) “Giacometti did not give a damn for success or reputation or money; all he wanted was to carry through his own ideals”. 46 Giacometti was also fuelled by his failure in the quest for creating his vision.

It is in relation to the concept of the devastating awareness of meaninglessness that Albert Camus claimed that "there is only one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide" in his The Myth of Sisyphus. On the other hand, La Sanseverina in Stendhal’s Chartreuse de Parme, believing that it is passion which endows man with his real value, would have declared that a grand passion justifies its sacrifices, and must be preferred to the banality of such conjugal love as would unite Stephen to the little goose he was engaged to marry.

This form is often identified with some notion of Early Christianity, which mostly existed during the first three centuries after Christ's crucifixion.
