〽️"This painting represents a group of three reclining nudes drinking tea or coffee in a chic apartment. 〽️While the reclining nude is a common subject in art history, these women's bodies have been simplified into rounded and dislocated forms, their skin not soft but firm, buffed, and polished. 〽️The machinelike precision and solidity with which Léger renders human form relates to his faith in modern industry and to his hope that art and the machine age would together reverse the chaos unleashed by World War I." ~MoMA 〽️ Working in Paris during the height of Cubism, Fernand Léger’s iconic style, with its emphasis on primary colors and rounded, massive forms, has become informally regarded as “Tubism.” 〽️Even at their most abstract, Léger’s subjects are easier to recognize than the rigorous Cubist dissections of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque〽️〽️〽️ "Three Women" 1921-22 by French artist, Fernand Léger (1881-1955) 〽️@themuseumofmodernart 〽️〽️〽️ #fernandleger#frenchartist#cubism#tubism#artoflooking#artblogging#arthistory#artobserved#museumofmodernartnyc#nyc#lovenyc ❤️ #myphotography#myphoto#museums#threewomen#recliningnude#museums#artoftheday#loveart#paris 〽️〽️〽️

🌴"Two Tahitian Women" 1899,by French artist, Paul Gauguin, (1848-1903)🌴 @metmuseum 🌴🌴🌴 In this painting, Paul Gaugin depended on sculpturally modeled forms, gesture, and facial expression to vivify the sentiments he had used to describe the "Tahitian Eve": "very subtle, very knowing in her naïveté" and at the same time "still capable of walking around naked without shame." 🌴Gauguin was born in Paris. 🌴In 1871, at the age of 23, Gauguin secured a job as a stockbroker and he painted in his free time.🌴 In 1873, he married a Danish woman, Mette-Sophie Gad (1850–1920). 🌴Over the next ten years, they had five children.🌴 But in 1882 the Paris stock market crashed and the art market contracted. 🌴Gauguin's earnings deteriorated sharply and he eventually decided to pursue painting full-time.🌴 Around the same time as he became a full time artist and renounced the "values" they shared, his marriage fell apart.🌴 By 1887 he embarked on many travels overseas, making his first visit to Tahiti in 1890. 🌴
Returning again in 1891, Gaugin wanted to escape European civilization and "everything that is artificial and conventional." 🌴Nevertheless, he took care to take with him a collection of visual stimuli in the form of photographs, drawings and prints.🌴🌴🌴 #paulgaugin#frenchartist#postimpressionist#symbolist#postimpressionism#modernart#modernartist#metropolitanmuseumofart#artoflooking#artblogging#arthistory#artobserved#manhattan#nyc @metmuseum #loveart#paris#museums#artoftheday#tahiti#myphotography#myphoto#lovenyc#loveparis 🌴🌴🌴
