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 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. 🙂
I don’t agree at all. For example, Noise/Ambient music is a defined and distinguished genre of music. People that “don’t get” it would say “hey he’s just hitting three keys the whole song” but that’s missing the point. Indeed, we could take this argument
Goddamn I love Klimt, this is such a beautiful painting. He was so good at capturing light in his art, it’s almost like it’s inherent to the image.
That’s not a phoenix. The [phoenix](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_%28mythology%29) is actually from Greek mythology, and this woodblock is usually referred to as “Lobster and Bird”, or just “Lobster”. Great submission, nonetheless!
interesting. there’s the same one at Stavovske theater in Prague [pic](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fb/Praha,_Star%C3%A9_M%C4%9Bsto,_Stavovsk%C3%A9_divadlo,_socha.JPG)
Ugh. Really don’t like this guy. He has art stores in tourist destinations (vegas, hawaii, etc) selling his giclee prints. Feels like walking into the disney store. Decent art, but just decent. A half step above trippy dorm room posters. My 2 cents.
He spent like the last 20 years living in Italy after moving away from Adelaide (Australia). I’ve seen his stuff all over the place, I know the museum here has a few, and I’ve seen a few in sothebys I reckon this one is
Something about the slickness — not just of the streets but of the whole scene — kind of creeps me out. The image is expertly executed in many ways, but this slickness — doesn’t look or feel to me like ordinary rain, even ordinary
