SOME OF MY FAVORITE ARTWORK
Inspired by @Diplomatic_diva
- •I love Bosch. There is so much going on! Incredible detail and you could spend years on the iconography.Garden of Earthly Delights triptych
- •Also it's a little twisted. 😏
- •Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Again, so much going on and I love the broad, flat faces and peasant scenes from the late medieval period.Children's Games
- •Trés Riches Heures du Duc du BerryLate medieval, French Gothic, I love paintings where they haven't really figured out perspective yet and you can see the artists playing with size and shape and form.
- •Madonna with the Long Neck by ParmigianoI love the mannerist bodies, they all look like they have extra vertebrae and are twisted in unnatural positions.
- •La Grand Odalisque by IngresAgain, extra long back, realistic but distorted, playing with form after the perfection of the renaissance.
- •Mickalene Thomas. I saw a few of her pieces in a special exhibit in Savannah. I love her colors, the collage nature of these pieces, and the size-full wall size paintings! Also look how similar it is to the Ingres ⬆️A Little Taste Outside of Love
- •Hudson River on My MindI love the combination of style and pattern here.
- •Michelangelo's sculptures in the Medici cathedral.Again, moving towards mannerism, I love how MICHELANGELO is moving away from the perfection of, say, the David.
- •The Bolt(The Lock) by FragonardThis is probably my favorite painting. The color and the passion and ALL THAT FABRIC!!!
- •The Last Supper/ DuccioI love the attempts at perspective here. It's far more interesting to me than later works that were far more realistic. The angle of the table also reminds me a little of a flat lay for Instagram.
- •Guernica/PicassoIt's just fabulous to look at.
- •The Raft of the Medusa/Gericault
- •Day of the Gods/GauguinThe colors are perfect. Gaugin has such a terrific way of painting people that doesn't distract from the glorious color.
