Is this a recognized art movement? I’ve noticed a whole crop of paintings that include paintings in other styles in the composition.

Beautiful. >Once I woke up in the middle of the night, got up and took the white shirt that hanged over my chair. As I did so, I realized that the left sleeve is very long, so I began to pull it. It was
In ancient Greek mythology Charon was the ferryman of Hades, who transported the souls of the newly-dead to the underworld.
100% agreed. I have several of his prints around the house (I adore art nouveau). My fav is F. Champenois Imprimeur-Éditeur. IMHO he was the epitome of the art nouveau movement.
This is a wonderful picture. My, Abe was a bit of a rugged looking man. Does…does anyone else think he had a MASSIVE HEAD? Either way, this is awesome and I’m glad you posted it.
Au contraire: >Life can often leave you feeling a bit lost for purpose, perhaps even empty inside, but there’s a great way to regain your clarity on what matters in this world: go traveling. Bronze sculptor Bruno Catalano has created an fascinating series of
That nose has some real three-dimensionality to it. It really pops out of the painting. Anyway, incredible stuff, thanks for sharing. A very dark scene, but still with quite a surprising amount of luminosity to it, almost looks more real than a real person
Actually a NSFW tag does hurt someone, *the artist.* See rather than be allowed to interpret the art based on its merits, by applying the tag you have already precondition the viewers response. The image “Piss Christ” would be offensive to some, and not
Awesome. Is the building that’s on considered art deco? EDIT: These murals reminded me of something, and I couldn’t immediately figure out what, but I decided it’s the [Coit Tower Murals,](http://vitaleartworks.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/coittowermurals.jpg) which are [also very cool.](http://unfinishedatlas.web.unc.edu/files/2012/04/SLK.ct09-0481.jpg)
Man, seeing things like this and knowing that they were carved from stone with hand tools over the course of months or even years is just staggering. I can’t even carve a proper derby car from a block of wood with an array of
Also, it’s part of a series of the seasons Pieter did. This is November on the left bleeding into December on the right. November is commonly a harvest and hunting month whereas, by December, people have settled into the Wintery rhythm and started taking
I don’t know I’ve looked at some of his other ones and they are very interesting and I like them a lot. This one though just leaves me scratching my head. It seems very atypical of his works both on the subject matter (male)
Agreed. We looked at some of his work in an art history survey I took in school. His work is very minimal, some of it almost feels ancient ([The Kiss](http://i.imgur.com/J3WwDEZ.jpg) for example) or otherworldly (such as [Bird in Space](http://i.imgur.com/QZhQoMu.jpg)).
yes, Bruegel’s place in the timeline is rather interesting. His technique and his palette were ahead of their time… the anthropological quality of his work is rather unique for his era. He and Hieronymus Bosch (a bit earlier) make an interesting pair to study
I’ve been looking through more of his pieces. The best way I’ve been able to understand pieces like this that are very abstract is to think of them more as feelings, but I don’t know that’s what he’s doing here. Other pieces he does
Jane Morris, William Morris’s wife, modelled for a huge number of the pre-raphaelites paintings. She is the woman from which the icon pre-raphaelite ‘look’ comes from: masculine jaw line, heavy lidded eyes, red hair, white skin, strong nose. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Morris I have always assumed that
Fun Fact: Raphael included self-portraits in some of his paintings, including this one! It’s the person in red with the black hat in the lower right corner, if I’m not mistaken.
Looks a bit like a Russian version of Seurat, but with soldiers and winter instead of people sunning on the Seine.
Am I the only one who finds this incredibly gaudy and verging on tacky? Paintings like this and others from the Royal Academy and descendants of Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the 1890s and 1900s basically necessitated innovation in English painting come the
Love Lord Leighton, I was lucky enough to see a few of his paintings in Sydney and now here in Puerto Rico they have my absolute favorite painting, “Flaming June”. Some artists are really disappointing when you see their work up close but he
That’s a really cool visual style. Is this oil paint? Honestly having a hard time telling whether this was made with physical media or digital…
> The figure of truth emerges from a well holding a scourge with which to shame and punish humankind. The image makes literal reference to a saying by the ancient Greek philosopher Democritus (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC): “Truth lies at the
Burn beating is apparently “a form of pioneer extensive farming in which patches of conifer forest were cut and burned to create fertilized fields”. [Source](http://www.everyculture.com/Cr-Ga/Finland.html#ixzz3E7OT51Um)
I’m talking about appreciated AS art, not a comfy road. for instance — http://theartofgooglebooks.tumblr.com/ this blog captures botched google books scans that have turned out beautifully. Are these not art? What about these: http://dornob.com/ghost-buildings-accidental-art-of-demolished-architecture/ What about when a toddler finger-paints something that is sophisticated
