No, in some cultures tortoise symbolize wisdom but there are lots of different comments about the painting. For example, another one is about patience training.

Wasn’t this the piece that inspired (or nearly did) the art for *Tangled*? I know it showed up in *Frozen*. Maybe it was another piece with a swing in it…
Check the website, cliquevodka.com where the img is located, I haven’t found any, but havent really looked that hard 😉
This is quite honestly the saddest attempt at critique of a talented contemporary painter I have ever seen – why not speak on behalf of his repetitive subject matter or your inability to recognize what it means to handle the medium in an eloquent
“The greatest period of activity and influence for the American artists known as the Ashcan School was prior to World War I. The name, taken from the ever-present urban image of the garbage can, wasn’t actually coined until the 1930s. The Ashcan School first
It’s my pleasure! If you’re interested, this painting has a pretty interesting history both during Church’s lifetime and afterwards. Basically it went from lost to the highest selling painting in auction history.
wow, love the realism. Normally people draw this realistic from a photo, but I don’t think this was. Painted in 1883 Born: May 27, 1837, Ostrogozhsk, Russia Died: April 6, 1887, Saint Petersburg, Russia Period: Realism Education: Imperial Academy of Arts
I just want to say I’ve been googling Dorothea Tanning for about an hour now. How awesome she was!
So uh, did they just cut off the face of the statue and stick it back? quick edit : Yes they did **Between 1964 and 1968, the entire site was carefully cut into large blocks (up to 30 tons, averaging 20 tons), dismantled, lifted
Oh, I think you have a good point. Dean Cornwell was a magazine illustrator who, like his contemporaries Rockwell or Leyendecker, would have been mindful of the usefulness of his work for propagandistic purposes. I would, however, ask that you bear in mind that
Really beautiful. Reminds me of Hopper, but more intimate and less melancholy.

This was his first ever oil painting. He joined the royal society and got his hands on proper oil paint for the first time and he came back a couple years later with this. People were understandably amazed. I think I’ve seen it on
This is cool! Reminds me of something I saw in Macau. [http://imgur.com/OwXGg31](http://imgur.com/OwXGg31)

> This painting is a brutal illustration of many types of people being indiscriminately taken by death. Skeletons are murdering hundreds of people, everyone from peasants to nobles, and from children to the King. None are spared their fate at the hands of death.
Where in Busan? I just got back from Busan a few hours ago.
“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams.” I love Beksinski for being a good surrealist painter. He never overdoes it with his work. There are always the right elements and enough empty space to draw the eye,
Ah, thank you so much! I didn’t know who this was from, but I’ll definitely check him out. I love this mural, out of all the street art in Lisbon it’s my favorite 🙂
