1. The painting shows Sardanapalus about to kill himself, but first his officers have to destroy all his favorite things while he is there such as his wives, pages, and his horses and dogs.
2. It shows the harsh world due to industrialization that was deadening. And goes to an emotional state portarayed in this painting. (romantic)
3. This painting had a lot going on in it that caught my eye. I don't really like this painting, it has negative vibes.
