Scene Three author's purpose

ASCND-AE1GCG

How does Williams set the tone of the scene through the use of the Van Gogh painting?

A

It uses the primary colors to draw attention to the primary conflict over the radio.

B

It has a strong sensory appeal - bold and dominant, like Stanley, foreshadowing the violence.

C

Paintings are cultured much like Blanche and this painting depicts her fragile mind.

D

It perfectly parallels the two male focused games: billiards and poker.

E

The painting is masculine and the scene is dominated by men.
