Moreover, some cultural significance is attached to the art of the world internationally and brings to the attention that there is a problem with under-representation of the female artist like the figure shown above. When addressing that problem, there seems to have very much jury. In the German context, a study conducted at Hertie School of governance at Berlin to address the problem. It was found that the female number which conducted such research was very few thus it is important to scrutinize up the problem. The percentage of the cultural workforce in the German that could undertake research in historical facts using art was around 48%. The desire of the women to engage in the art world was very low. An unveiled project which was done behind the UN-SCR-1325 exhibition it showed how female line up had been included and had provided many platforms for the female artist. The classical theme of humanity was the project aim which was represented in Belgium art. The research conducted in this scenario exhibition show that 17 out of 63 artists on the exhibition are female. Moreover, the aim of the exhibition aims at extending the art of historical concept of ‘Ecce Homo’. Secularizing in the western world brought the concept which made the public forget much of its culture.

During the colonial period is when the academic style was raised up in Spanish. The emergence of 13 modernists brought turning point which included artists who had received education abroad and had come in contact with various experimental and new styles. There was lack of originality and rigidness as which come up as a result of argument which had claimed that official art was relied too much on the exactness of representation and was too photographic. One of the most famous paintings during colonial was the one painted Juan in the style of neo-classicism “Las Damas Romanas” new wave of nationalism was influenced by the arrival of the Americans which was best shown in the art of Fernando Amorsolo. The traditional folk scene was the art of the period as an embodiment of the imagined sense of the nationhood. The arts usually represent pastimes, customs and occupations are among the most recognizable motifs which are employed. Amorsolo in hindsight was criticized by some historian for painting an idealized version of what life was like that period while others have argued that paintings reflected the people’s desire to run away from ambiguous reality to simplicity.
