    Fine Art.

    Post by Guest on Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:47 am

    A thread for all the fine art out there you'd like to share and discuss. Everything excluding Music since there is already a music section on here.

    Floatation, 1945 by James McCray.
    Medium: Egg tempera on board.
    Dimensions: 16x20 in.


    Anybody else get a sense of falling when staring at the top right corner?

    When it comes to art, anything biblical interests me.

    For example The Creation of Adam

    Now that you mention it, yeah. Laughing Looked like a corridor at first, but when you see the end as the sky, then it's easy to imagine yourself falling.

    Not really knowledgeable about traditional art and how to break it down. Here's a piece I've always liked though:




    Name: Saturn Devouring His Sons
    Artist: Francisco Goya not worthy

    I like most of Goya's stuff to be honest.

    I don't like "modern art" like the one Che posted. It's like someone just painted a bunch of random shit and called it art.

    @ Jordon

    What's interesting about that piece is that the body's and red cloth around god form what looks like a brain. Might be a hidden message there.


    Religious pieces are quite interesting. One of my favorite pieces
    from that genre. Is the Virgin of Guadalupe and the apparitions to Juan
    Diego, 1691 by Manuel de Arellano.
    Medium: Oil on canvas.


    Dimensions: 71 7/16 x 48 9/16 in.




    @ Gordon.
    One of Goya's Black Paintings.

    Dude was going through some issues when he made those.

    When you know the story about Saturn, and how it was prophesied that one of his sons would overthrow him, he ate all of his children soon after they were born, except for Jupiter who was hidden by his mother. Jupiter eventually did overthrow his father Saturn.

    But get this, Saturn's Greek equivalent is the Titan Cronus, and his son's Greek equivalent. Goya who was suffering from health problems might have confused this Cronos with the other Chronos the god of time and this painting was his way of saying, "only a god can escape being devoured by time"

    Surprised

    @Ahly

    A lot of people feel like that, but once you study a bit about art form and the significance of lines, couture, implied lines ect. you find yourself appreciating it a bit more. It's your ignorance that keeps you from appreciating it. You and I wouldn't be able to paint that in 100 years.

    Oh I'm not saying I can do that. I just don't really appreciate it as much as other forms of art. It's not something I would pay to put up on my wall.

    That's beast, I dig it. And yeah, I get that too a bit from the top right.


    @ Ahly, yeah it's not that hard to reproduce. I just appreciate it for looking cool anyway.

    Yep, The Starry Night, 1889, oil on canvas.

    One of his masterpieces, ironically Van Goh wasn't very thrilled about it. But that nigga was mad so what the fuck does he know? Laughing

    It's probably one of the most famous painting of the expressionist movement. Which makes me question what it's doing hanging on Zzonked's wall. -_-

    Most English painters were shit. We just couldn't quite grasp portraits like the Italians.

    Apparently Van Goh had cataracts and thats why he put so much blue into his paintings.

    I wish I could appreciate art more, it makes you sound much more sophisticated, but its just kind of pictures to me shifty

    Greeks have some lovely pieces of art. Lots of interesting characters to reference from.


    Greek God Athena


    Poseidon, my favourite Greek God Love

    @ Jord.

    Joseph Wright was pretty amazing, he's my favorite I think. Worked a lot with candle light, not nearly as famous as people like George Frederick Watts however.



    Of course then there are the obvious ones like Thomas Gainsborough, Henry Raeburn,(think you'll like this guys work) and Joshua Reynolds.

    But yeah, the Italians and the Dutch pretty much had the portrait game on lock.

    The English dominated landscaping art though, so you know. shifty

    Only thing Mexicans dominate are fist fights. -_-

    That's amazing. I love how the water bowl glows as if the light source is coming from that.

    Looks like someone bought everything off the menu from McDonalds, fed it to a dog, then put the dog on a roundabout until it puked.

    To be fair the painting is very large, 8ft x 4ft, and like pretty much everything else in the world, art has fads, and at the time of the purchase the fad was abstract expressionism.

    The artist for this, Jackson Pollock actually had a lot of personal problems, mostly with alcohol, he probably made this in a drunken rage, that's also part of it's appeal I guess, guy ended up smashing his car against a tree and dying a pretty young death by the way(44 I think)

    Ressurection Rooney is actually right about it being nothing, it literally is nothing, Pollock never put much meaning into any of his work and never started with a vision in his mind, he just threw paint around for the most part. It's part of the whole, rebellious, emotionally intense, nihilistic charm of the art form.

    But yeah, I don't like it either. Laughing
