In the present tense, The Modern Style Lady finds herself in a state of tension as she navigates through the complexities of modern life. Her mind is filled with conflicting thoughts and emotions, much like a confused woman trying to make sense of it all. Meanwhile, William Elliot (1707-1792) captures the essence of tension in his artwork. His masterpiece depicts a husband and wife locked in a tense scene, their faces etched with worry and frustration. It serves as a reminder that even the closest relationships can experience moments of strain. Turning back time, we find ourselves amidst the presidential elections in Germany during March-April 1925. These were not ordinary elections; they marked the first direct vote for presidency. The nation was on edge as tensions ran high among political factions vying for power. Delving further into history, Leda and the Swan (stone) stands frozen in time - an enigmatic b/w photo capturing both beauty and unease. This ancient mythological tale symbolizes tension between desire and vulnerability, leaving viewers captivated by its mysterious allure. Stephen Langton's illustration from "The Mighty Army" takes us on an exhilarating journey through medieval times where battles raged on relentlessly. With every stroke of color litho inked onto paper, Langton brings forth intense scenes filled with warriors engaged in fierce combat – showcasing moments teeming with palpable tension. Shifting gears to artistry expressed through oil on canvas: A seated female nude painted meticulously in 1892 evokes feelings of both admiration and discomfort simultaneously. The artist masterfully portrays her body language exuding an air of apprehension or anticipation - inviting viewers to contemplate what lies beneath her serene exterior. Sports enthusiasts can relate to Tense Moments On The 15th Hole or Green – those nail-biting instances when golfers face critical shots that could make or break their game. Every swing carries weighty expectations while spectators hold their breath, creating an atmosphere charged with tension.
