It’s a reference to the TV Series “Hannibal”. Where one of the main characters has visions of an Elk/Stag. One of his phrases is “This is my design.”
You may be correct, faulty memory. I recall Diane Rehm at WAMU had the author of a book on Sargent–and, it may be that I am mis-recollecting my so-called fact.
Funny story regarding this sculpture…. I have a miniature version that I have from a study abroad trip to Greece years back. It was on a bookshelf in my apartment that, when I moved a few months ago, the movers wrapped and packed for
OK, I’ll throw a couple out real quick since I have to leave for class in like 10 min. * The green of her dress implies fertility and the bulge at her tummy may be just the bunching up of the dress but may
If that’s your understanding, here’s a nice place to kill a few a hours and broaden your understanding. Since the conception of this country we’ve only been in peace for 20 years. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_foreign_interventions_since_1945
Actually pretty good. Feels like Jesus and the last supper with the vulture to the right perched saying: “what? i don’t give a shit..?”
August Friedrich Albrecht Schenck – Danish born – settled in Paris. Anguish was completed in 1880. The National Gallery of Victoria has this info on interpreting the work, “[Schenck] Specializing in painting landscapes and animal subjects, which were often seen as a metaphor for
I absolutely love this style of painting. Baroque in style, and very busy in content. I like seeing a room full of people doing different things. You can almost feel the liveliness seeping from the painting.
[Reminds me of a Gerhard Richter painting.](http://www.google.com/search?q=gerhard+richter&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=oENbUbW8O4rniAKs9IDgDg&biw=1280&bih=549&sei=o0NbUa8MjOGKAvqPgegK)
I really liked this so I checked out his other stuff. I did not like any of his other work so I came back and looked at this some more, I don’t much care for this either.
To my knowledge, the face-ass thing isn’t a particularly common representation, but artists at the time definitely came up with some awesomely fucked-up ways to depict the Devil and various lesser demons and monsters. I think because a lot (not all, but a lot)
Here’s a [detail shot](http://i.imgur.com/foLihnw.jpg) of that for you. The books don’t really cover these magic little “economy of brushstroke” details that make Sargent remarkable to me, so I’ve started taking the photos myself whenever the opportunity presents. I hope you enjoy. Edit: Here’s another
Ugh this picture makes me want to cry. So many good/bad memories attached to it. 🙂 Here, listen to this with me, it adds to the epic feel of the entire thing.
His name is actually Boulet, Bouletcorp is the name of his website. [Here’s the link](http://www.bouletcorp.com/) if anyone is interested.
no way – it’s a drawing. Could be a litography. The contrast is however too deep for a copper plate, and the lines too fine for any other technique. So I’m guessing steel tip ink or litography.
I honestly couldn’t tell this was a painting until the bottom half loaded. As it was loading all I could see was the top half of the walls and the sky and I thought “is this a photo in artporn?” and was ready to
This reminds me of a wooden [Kowloon Walled City](http://www.greggirard.com/content/gallery/Girard_kowloon015.jpg)
This reminded me of “Peter Getting out of Nick’s Pool”, which turned out to be the same artist. [Here are some more](http://tipoidealblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/pool.html) paintings by Hockney.
Damned few links to it. I think it’s probably Chinese, since Chinese characters are on the mirror frame, and the few google hits were mostly Chinese sites. So “Anthony” doesn’t make much sense as the artist name, but that’s all the info I have
One of my favorite figure painters. So strange to see how different his style was. Also check out his landscapes. There pretty interesting.
This is on the Eastside Trail of the Beltline. Underneath the bridge closest to Monroe Drive. You know, just in case anyone wants to go see it. There’s actually lots of great art along the whole trail.
This work stopped me in my tracks as I was rushing through the National Gallery in London, there as part of a study abroad course on Roman Britain. I wrote the name and the artist down and quickly discovered it was on loan from
Thank you for posting this print! For others that are interested, this is a Japanese woodblock print created during a resurgence of interest in traditional woodblock printing during the 1920s and 30s (called “shin hanga”). An interesting thing to note about this print, and
Good one. Hopper’s one of my favorite painters. Hadn’t seen this one. Funny. These days, he’d have to paint the usher looking at her cell phone. 🙂
