Visit the MSOE Grohmann Museum online and browse the gallery. (as of 1/16 this page is temporarily down due to website reconstruction) Given what we have learned about the created goodness of work and the curse of fallen work, what do you notice about the 12 selected paintings from the collection? What differences do you see? Which do you like most? How do you relate them to your work? 

Spend additional time considering the painting “Inside a Forge” by Cornelis Beelt. What stories can you imagine this painting tells?
