I find this work's Ethereal Otherness to be profound, yet insipid.
In the future, post these in the arts topic on the General Interest forum.
Let me know if you want on or off this Art Ap "class" ping list.
BTW: Liz has a great thread going now on Klimt in general chat (which is where I should have posted this and will do so in the future). I don't want to impinge on her thread, but I went to a contemporary art musuem today and was inspired to go back to the old masters and do the next installment to this series.
I will. Sorry. I wasn't sure how to do so. Thanks for switching us over.
dislike the post modern french but the art of this period IMpressionism is unique in its emotional content -
and genius..waiting for the next great movement with the same impact of expanding the minds eye.
Thanks for the great images posted here. Bravo
I noticed, on the Klimt thread, that you wanted to be added to Liz's list. So I thought I'd ping this to you. If you want to be on this other list, let me know.
Thanks for the thread.
I like Gaugin. My art tastes are a little odd, I guess.
I also like Henri Rousseau (I know some art critics don't think much of his work.)
And if you asked me why I like them, I probably couldn't give you an answer, but the colors and the shapes appeal to me.
I like some of Rousseau's works: especially The Dream and Sleeping Gypsy. But other works are a bit weak in color and shape.
FYI, those aren't nuns. Those are Breton peasant women wearing the traditional costume. The elaborately crimped and trimmed starched hats are typical of French, Swiss, and some German traditional costumes.
Please add me to your ping list. Thanks!
Were his shoulders really deformed? I have known one other person with the big head and extremely narrow shoulders. It certainly didn't impede him in any way, but he looked odd.
Lets not forget the homegrown. Robert Henri.
I like the casual elegance of the ordinariness of the city affected by light, and the misty New England mood.
Oooooo, please add me to the ping list.
I am a passionate lover of Impressionism, though I am a novice of the historical aspects. My home is filled with Monet and Renoir Prints. Renoir is my absolute favorite. I love the way he focuses not only on people, but it seems to be in many cases, the relationships or solitude revealed in each one that I find so appealing.
My favorite is Luncheon of the Boating Party. A group of friends, in what appears to be summer time, enjoying each other's company touches me.
