I will post some other paintings that I love or art - but Claude Monet is my absolute FAVORITE
Feel free to post whatever art is part of your SOUL - As an artist myself I love that everyone sees ART differently! And we all see beauty in different things.
I will always remember how warm the weather was and how fresh the climatic rooms felt, the pictures were at. It was such a delightful breather not only for the body but also for the heart. I was in an exhibition many years before in a German town called Balingen to see his pictures.
I have seen some of the Khotties (should I call them that on this thread) posting where they are walking through an art exhibition in S. Korea! I wanna go! The rooms look cool and inviting. Maybe one of them would show me AROUND
I think, I was 6-7 times in Paris and I never went to the Louvre, I was there in Spring once it was hot, several times in Summer it was hot and 1 time in November freezing I had to buy gloves.
It’s not that I wouldn’t want to go, but the masses of people going there, mind-blowing.
There is one museum about Asia I wanted to visit, but since the time I wanted, I have not made it back to Paris.
This one I would prefer even before going to the Louvre https://www.musee-orsay.fr/
But I have been a lot in churches in Paris and just walking in the different quarter is like walking in an open air museum sometimes.
I was in HIGH SCHOOL when I learned about REMBRANDT’s work and became fascinated by his vivid/real looking paintings. I guess that is why he’s my favorite, and up to now will always be the #1.
Rembrandt’s Biblical Work
Rembrandt (biography) created over 300 works of art inspired by stories from the Bible. Most of these works are drawings and etchings. In addition, there are some 60 paintings on Biblical themes. This essay offers a summary of the style and subject matter of these works.
Development of style
The development of Rembrandt’s style is reflected clearly over time. His '20s and '30s works are tempestuous, almost baroque. He does not shun the grand, dramatic scenes, while focusing mainly on the action. During this period Rembrandt’s canvasses and panels are moderately sized. Judas Returns the Thirty Pieces of Silver. Please note that Rembrandt never created historical pieces with large numbers. Rembrandt would choose a limited number of characters and capture them at a key moment.
The TEN Commandments
If I had to pick a genre then it would probably be surrealism. No particular artist, whatever freaks out my logical mind I guess. I like this one
Entre les trous de la memoire by Dominique Appia. This is the original which oddly does nothing for me.
but if it’s flipped like this, I can look at it for hours, maybe something to do with left brain/right brain or being left or right handed?
I like Nighthawks by Edward Hopper. It manages to actually convey a feeling of loneliness/emptiness.
I thought the small but colourful and well lit room of Tak Dong Kyung in contrast with the dark vastness of Doom’s room was reminiscent of the light and colour in the diner contrasting with the emptiness of the street outside.
