This is amazing work. I love how it manages to maintain his works in the aesthetic because of the organic lines, but also adds a bit of grotesque combining elements of beauty with some of death and disarray. I also like the subtleties and

unless I just can’t find it, this must be one of the few works of his that doesn’t involve a hidden goat.
It shows well the transition between the dance of death and the theme of Death and the maiden. Here Death is a rotting corpse which does not caress the girl nicely, it take her by the hand; it grasps her by the neck and
Wow I really like this do you know the size of it? Is it life sized I mean.
If you like this, [read a little about his life.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravaggio) >”He was notorious for brawling, even in a time and place when such behavior was commonplace, and the transcripts of his police records and trial proceedings fill several pages. On 29 May 1606, he

I’ve never been a fan of still lifes either, but these are so different. I’m not a native English speaker, but the words I would use for these are lusty, sultry, sensual, passionate. It is rare that I get these feelings from paintings, and
This is a bureaucracy. Last Name, First Name, Middle. If you don’t like it, speak to my supervisor. 🙂
I enjoyed this so much I decided to look more into it than imgur It’s at the Tate [[link]](http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/logsdail-st-martin-in-the-fields-n01621). The actual title is St Martin-in-the-Fields by William Logsdail, not Longsdail
You know I was got into a discussion yesterday about the influence of the camera and was trying to reemember this exact painting. Of course it’d show up here a few days later.
Magritte said of this painting: “At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It’s something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides another thing, we always
This reminds me of my Art History final…….that I hope I didn’t bomb. I do know a lot about this work though. Off the top of my head it’s a Surrealist work, from the early 1920s. It does comment on WW1 (and industrialization), which
Is it just me or is the figure centre frame distorted in some strange way? His upper and lower halves seem to be facing opposite directions. Odd.
Unsuccessful? Only among the most elite echelons of art criticism, and honestly, you’d be hard pressed to find many, if any, 22 year olds that would pass that grade. Never cared for the term unsuccessful in such an exceptionally subjective area as art appreciation.

This painting is awesome. Check out the really crazy rocks in the foreground–it’s like they have life unto themselves. Kramskoy painted them like this to emphasize Satan’s tempting of Christ to turn rocks into bread. Jesus thus envisions the rocks as having a life
Apologies for the late response as I’ve been off reddit for a few days. I try my best not to leave someone’s question hangin’, but will be honest when saying that this is difficult to answer in that I’m finding a serious serious lack
Incredible. Western art history (at least in the early 1970’s) completely ignored the artistry of the Moors and Muslim world. Alhambra is the only great work I have viewed, and what a phenomenal work it is.
[Here’s a (3900×2128) version](http://i.imgur.com/uPPlR.jpg!), but that’s only because imgur limited it to that. The one I found on google search is a 6000×2637
People forget how hard it is to actually paint such abstract things. I mean… Where do you even start? How do you know you’re done? It’s creating somethingn that has never existed before, except in the artist’s head. Sure, some abstract work is technically
It has such an unsettling and almost fearful attitude, while still being so soft and lovely. Thanks for sharing!
This painting has long been associated with Germanic mythology, [as attested on its the Wikipedia page](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Titan%27s_Goblet). The subject is a twist on the Norse World Tree, and the style is highly remiscent of contemporary German Romantic painters (e.g. Caspar David Friedrich) A painting evoking
He is good, a minor (in recognition) Canadian artist, actually lives one small town over from me. His books are worth looking at if you can get your hands on one. If you are in Canada, your local library should have some.
