⚪️"The Virgin Adoring the Host" 1852, by French artist, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (French, Montauban 1780–1867 Paris)⚪️ @metmuseum ⚪️⚪️⚪️ "This small, jewel-like devotional painting was made as a gift for Ingres’s friend Louise Marcotte, who introduced the artist to Delphine Ramel, whom he married in 1852. ⚪️The Raphaelesque composition is based on one Ingres first painted in 1841 for the future czar Alexander II, which includes the two patron saints of Russia, Alexander Nevsky and Nicholas (Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow). ⚪️For this version, Ingres replaced the Russian saints with two French ones. ⚪️He would go on to paint four more variants." ~MET⚪️⚪️⚪️ #jeanaugustedominiqueingres #frenchartist #frenchmaster #ingres #devotionalart #religousart #virginmary #paris #figurativeart #figurativeartist #metropolitanmuseumofart #newyorknewyork #nyc  #artoftheday #artobserved #arthistory #artblogging #loveart #arttalk #artbite #museums #thehost ⚪️⚪️⚪️

〽️"Self-portrait"
by Italian artist, Giuseppe De Nittis (b. Barletta, in the region of Apulia,1846 – d. Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France, 1884) 〽️〽️〽️ Merging the styles of Salon art and Impressionism, Giuseppe De Nittis was one of the important Italian painters of the 19th century. 〽️ Edgar Degas, who was a friend of several others Italian artists,
invited De Nittis to exhibit at the first Impressionist exhibition, held at Nadar's. 〽️ However, De Nittis was not accepted by all of the Impressionists, and did not participate in their subsequent exhibitions. 〽️As a viewer, my eye immediately focuses on the pinkish flesh tones of his face.〽️I am then led through the panelled room to the  pinkish drapes in the back of this grand home. 〽️ 〽️〽️ #giuseppedenittis #italianartist #edgardegas #selfpotrait #impressionism #impressionist #apulia #saintgermainenlaye #france🇫🇷 #artoftheday #arthistory #loveart #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging 〽️〽️〽️

🥞One summer during his high school years Wayne Thiebaud apprenticed at Walt Disney Studios drawing "in-betweens" of Goofy, Pinocchio, and Jiminy Cricket at a rate of $14 a week. 🥞

From 1938 to 1949, he worked as a cartoonist and designer in California and New York. 🥞He served as an artist in the First Motion Picture Unit of the United States Army Air Forces from 1942 to 1945.🥞 After that, Thiebaud's works were associated with the Pop art painters because of his interest in objects of mass culture; however, his works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predates the works of the classic pop artists, suggesting that he may have had an influence on the movement. 🥞

It was his time in  New York City, in 1956-7 that he was influenced by abstractionists and new friends Elaine and Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, and proto-pop artists Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. 🥞

With his application of heavy pigment and exaggerated colours,  he began a series of very small paintings based on images of food displayed in windows, focusing on their basic shapes and throughout his life, Thiebaud was ever so fascinated with mundane scenes from everyday American life.🥞🥞🥞 "Pancake Breakfast"  by American artist, Wayne Thiebaud (b.

The crystal orb from the “Salvator Mundi” took me back to my memory of the thousand glass spheres: a large wall installation by Danish-Icelandic artist OLAFUR ELIASSON, that I saw at the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, in Seoul Korea last year. Interestingly titled as “Your unpredictable path” it was positioned on a large black wall with variety of sizes and colored spheres, some in clusters that extend to a full composition translating astronomical phenomena and constellations. Some of the sphere surfaces are mirror coated hence reflecting inverted images of the viewers (can you see me?😉) and surroundings that was cool 😎 and mesmerizing as walking by..

🔵"Femmes au bull-dog (Women with Bulldog)" 1941-42 by French artist, Francis Picabia (B. 1879, Paris- d. 1953, Paris)🔵Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne, Paris🔵🔵🔵 Women with Bulldog is one of a number of photo-based paintings that Francis Picabia painted in the south of France during World War II.🔵 Many of the images in this painting came from  pin-ups from 1930s "nudie" magazines, that were popular in France at this time.🔵. The dog and each of the women come from a different photographic source. 🔵

The dog—Picabia painted it with lots of wonderful, expressionistic brushstrokes—as opposed to the very soft focus, smooth, photographic style that he used for the blonde's body in particular.🔵 The inclusion of the window may be an ode to traditional European paintings.🔵 Picabia was a close friend of the famous art collector and writer Gertrude Stein. 🔵🔵🔵 #francispicabia  #frenchartist #figurativeart #frenchmagazines #wwii #anotherera @centrepompidou #centrepompidou #womenwithbulldog #painterlystrokes #artoftheday #museums #paris #myphoto #myphotography #loveparis❤️ #avantegardeartist #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging #arttalk #arttours #loveart #realismart 🔵🔵🔵

Nella splendida cornice dell' @albertinamuseum di #Vienna ci sono due sale interamente dedicate alle riproduzioni facsimile di #Michelangelo.

Un allestimento prettamente didattico offre allo spettatore opere, incorniciate come se fossero degli originali, raccontano il percorso dell'artista nelle sue fasi salienti.

Grazie all'esposizione di alcuni fra i disegni più celebri si può fare un viaggio a ritroso nel tempo e scoprire da vicino il guizzo del suo tratto inconfondibile. 🏛❤ #ilovemyjob  #ilovearchaeology #archaeologylife #museumgram #fotodelgiorno #fotografia #viaggiare #picoftheday #instapic #archeologia #nofilter #traveller #artblogging

An archangel’s annunciation last night and tonight Jesus has arrived!😳 Tonight 🌟 at New York Christie’s, the painting known as “Salvator Mundi” (Saviour of the World), a 500-year-old painting of Christ, “believed” to have been painted by Leonardo da Vinci has been sold for a record $450m, the highest auction price for any work of art. The small painting portrays Jesus raising his right hand in blessing and holding a crystal orb, representing the world. It’s one of 16 known and surviving paintings (incl. the “Mona Lisa”) by the master of the Italian Renaissance. The provenance of the painting is quite a story in itself and definitely super fascinating.. According to the image source Christie’s: “The painting has been cleaned and restored from the image on the left to the one on the right”

Homage to (reverse chronologically) the brilliantly flying fabrics of “A POC Queen” of Issey Mihail and Fujiwara Dai I saw at MoMA, “The Annunciation” by Flemish painter Jan de Beer comes to my mind. De Beer was one of the most respected painters from the 16th century group “Antwerp Mannerists” famous for their religious compositions in late Gothic and Renaissance styles. Here, the flying Archangel, Virgin Mary and the Bible story of “The Visitation” through the window, in full of narratives and symbolism sprinkled throughout the painting compositions, definitely one of the most beautiful artworks I enjoyed from my visit to the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, in Madrid, Spain 🇪🇸 this year.

🕯"The Disappointed Souls" 1892, by Swiss artist, Ferdinand Hodler🕯 (b. Bern 1853-d. Geneva 1918)
Kunstmuseum Bern, Staat Bern 🕯🕯🕯 Ferdinand Hodler developed a style he called "parallelism" that emphasized the symmetry and rhythm he believed formed the basis of human society.🕯 In this work the forms of the two men sitting symmetrically on each side of the central figure, create a cadence movement across the canvas.🕯 Garbed in black drapery, these subjects speak of life's senselessness, the weariness that it causes and humanities quiet resignation in the face of mortality. 🕯

The painting captures a central subject of Hodler's oeuvre, Thanatos (the personification of death in Greek mythology). 🕯

Hodler made a trip to Basel in 1875, where he studied the paintings of Hans Holbein—especially Dead Christ in the Tomb, which influenced Hodler's many treatments of the theme of death. 🕯🕯🕯 #ferdinandhodler #swissartist #lostsouls #thanatos #immortalityofsoul #kunsthistorischesmuseum #bern #geneva #holbein #symbolism #artoftheday #arthistory #artoflooking #myphoto #myphotography #artobserved #bluemonday #specialexhibit #artblogging #arttalk #artbite 🕯🕯🕯

Eye-catching in red, “A POC Queen” (1997) by Japanese designers Issey Miyake and Fujiwara Dai, I viewed at MoMA this week. One of the many “items” (vs. artworks?) displayed at the museum’s first fashion exhibition in the recent era, entitled “Items: Is Fashion Modern?.” According to the exhibition info, A–POC (A Piece of Clothing) Queen Textile “is an innovative outfitting system that produces self–tailored clothing through mass production... An industrial weaving machine is preprogrammed to spin an enormous, continuous tube of fabric...The result is a puzzle of monochromatic articles of clothing that leaves behind virtually no wasted material.” In fact, looking in further, “Items: Is Fashion Modern” has a quite an interesting predecessor exhibition in the 1940s at MoMA called “Are Clothes Modern?” Organized by Bernard Rudofsky, an architect and social historian expressing rather rigid commentary that clothing was “anachronistic, irrational and harmful.” 😳🤔 I do think it’s about time to re-examine what and where is Fashion in the world of Art..

🌈This was the first of David Hockney's double portraits, in 1968. 🌈British novelist Christopher Isherwood (1904-1986) sits in hawkish profile, eyes locked on his much younger lover of thirty years,  American portrait artist, Don Bachardy (b.1934). 🌈A bowl of fruit, behind a phallic cob of corn, distorts the horizontal line into a triangle, forcing the viewer’s gaze to circle restlessly around the canvas. 🌈Note also, Hockney’s profound interest in colour, specifically his love of blues,  the colours of water. 🌈Blue often plays a minor or leading role in many of his paintings. 🌈🌈🌈 "Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy" 1968 by British artist, David Hockney (b.1937) 🌈private collection🌈🌈🌈 #davidhockney #britishartist #portraitartist #modernart #modernartists #contemporaryartist #colourblue #doubleportrait #bowloffruit #privatecollection #artoftheday #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging #arttours #artbite #arttalk 🌈🌈🌈

A look at my desk after I did some tidying up. Purple zip case is where I keep my Polychromos pencils, I keep my markers up above to the left, and my watercolor palettes to the right above my currently used sketchbook shelf. My desk might be an ancient beast, but I still get plenty of use out of it 😊

🌳"Orchard with Flowering Apple Trees, Columbes" by French artist, Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894) 🌳On loan @agotoronto 🌳🌳🌳 "Throughout his painting career Gustavo Caillebotte passionately examined all forms of technology in the places where he lived. 🌳This ranged from the engineering of bridges in Paris to the agricultural technologies seen above. 🌳He uses the receding of trees and stakes to lead our eye into the distance, where we can see the River Seine and rolling purple mountains."~AGO🌳

His application of thick luscious paint, in a rich palette of colour,  can be even more appreciated in the follow up detail.  I am loving his selection of sky blue in contrast with his purple mountains set against the profusion of colours in his orchard! #myhappycolours! 🌳🌳🌳 #gustavecaillebotte #frenchartist #paris #realism #impressionism #appleorchard #privatecollection #artgalleryofontario #toronto #dundasstreetwest #mytofd #museums #artoftheday #arthistory #impressionist #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging #arttalk #arthistory #myphoto #myphotography 🌳🌳🌳

Wonderful Greek icon on a wall panel between marble columns, in the front altar of the Church of Panagia in Chora, Folegandros island in Greece. Although in badly preserved shape, the beauty of the original composition and colors were evidently commanding 🌟

⚜️A narrative rich portrait of Marie-Joséphine Buron by Jacques-Louis David. ⚜️Who is she? ⚜️What is she thinking? ⚜️Her attributes include three well worn books. ⚜️Does she have the look of guilt, shock or perhaps revelation? ⚜️Is her life as complex and dynamic as the artist of this painting? ⚜️ Jacques-Louis David was a survivor, an ill-tempered chameleon whose mesmerizing colours saved him from prison, earned him a title from an emperor, and lived on through his devoted students and followers.⚜️ He was a member of the Royal Academy — the King himself granting David the right to live in the Louvre.⚜️ With violence brewing, Parisian tension exploded into the French Revolution. ⚜️ From a monarchist loyalist, David swung to support the new nationalists.⚜️ He became one of the leaders of the revolution, alongside Maximilien Robespierre (1758–1794). ⚜️David would vote in the National Convention to execute King Louis XVI. ⚜️ David died in a carriage accident, his body buried in Brussels, but his heart returned to Paris and buried in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.⚜️ Jacques Louis David, an active supporter of the French Revolution,  social activist, Napoleon supporter and a preeminent painter of the era. ⚜️His cerebral brand of history painting contributed to harmonizing the moral climate of the final years of the Ancien Régime (the old regime). ⚜️⚜️⚜️ "Portrait of Marie-Joséphine Buron" 1769, by French artist, Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) ⚜️Art Institute of Chicago⚜️⚜️⚜️ #jacqueslouisdavid #frenchartist #paris #portraiture #figurativeart #neoclassicism #frenchrevolution #perelachaisecemetery #politicalanarchist #monarchist #artinstituteofchicago @artinstitutechi #chicago #museums #artoftheday #historypainting #arthistory #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging #loveart #academicart #arttalk #arttours #artblogging ⚜️⚜️⚜️

Hey! We haven't vanished forever! Don't worry, we have a lot planned, but in the meantime please enjoy this painting I saw on my recent trip to England. And if you ever feel bad, just remember one of these kids is named Bucket. - Cat #fineart #tatebritain #alltheplans #artblogging
