Yesterday, we learned about a particular friendship and how it impacted a famous artwork. Today, we thought it could be interesting to take a brief peek at some other historical friendships (via TIME). It’s a fairly simple correlation, but given the emotional weight of Artifact 104, we thought something a little lighter might be nice. 🙂


Some other questions to consider:

How does friendship change throughout a person’s life? Is our approach to friendships affected by our ages?

Does fame influence friendship? For instance, if one of your friends were to become famous, do you think that would affect your interactions?

What are some of your favorite photographs of you and your friends? Why are those your favorites?
