    These are fantastic. Thanks for sharing them.

  2. do you have a favourite artist?

    • Not referred to the works of this post, generally I’m a fan of Rembrandt, Cézanne, Matisse, Hopper, Munch, Hockney…and I’m sure I’m skipping over some many more. One is based in their characteristics and make a ‘mixed salad’ with their features. Oh Rainee, thanks so much for stopping by and thanks again for your question. See you soon 😉

  3. i love lautrec, the resting. can be just a daytime nap, a deep sleep, or perhaps a ‘final rest,’ from which one never wakes –

    • Wow Beth, I like so much your reflection, is excellent. I love its depth. But I’m sorry because I have no more information about what happened to the sketched girl in relation with Lautrec. Some other artists some times depicts someone ill on a bed. It is so rare that Lautrec captured a dramatic scene. But here neither not seems any scene about motifs of frivolity, fun or erotism that we find so often in this artist. But I believe she could be a member of his family accidentaly portrayed. So much thanks from heart for your comment. Have a nice day, my dear.

  4. Excellent ones 🙂 But Rembrandt’s “Preparing the Gossip” is just perfect and made me laugh 🙂

    • Since long centuries ago, (Rembrandt lived on 17th), the leisure of some people (and not always women) was to lean on a window or a balcony, and after they whispered about what they saw or often what they imagined. Don’t laugh dear, sometimes is a dangerous specie. Get rid of them! Thanks a million for your comment. 😀

    Reblogged this on Myblog's Blog.

  6. I just read the blog post with this quote: “Art is the only means by which we can convey both FACTS and FEELINGS about the fact.”

    • Hi dear Georgia, how could I pay your wise quote. I thought with another sentence in this case by Edward Hopper that some days ago I read somewhere: “If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.” Thanks for your friendly comment and for stopping by. A giant kiss.

  7. Loving your choices! The one by Daumier is fantastic.

    • Oh dear, I should to guess this drawing would be your favourite because in some way it depicts the show that some people must to follow to survive, something about I think you worry. I’m so grateful for your comment, you give me the chance to tell to you and everybody that this french artist was the main model for the learning of Walter Disney he adored him. Thanks again, you merit a giant kiss.

  8. Lovely series – I enjoyed these very much, I hadn’t heard of Petrov-Vodkin before! Munch’s painting reminded me go Hoppers Diners! 🙂

    • Oh my friend, I knew Petrov-Vodkin but not since much time ago. We all are learning something new. I like you have evoked ‘Hoppers Diners’ with this work of Munch. So true, the both artists capture some feeling. Hopper about solitude, with a technique more sculptural and Munch more flat with more gestual strokes. I’m so thankful for your contribution with your wise comment. Best wishes!

      • I looked up Petrov-Vodkin on wiki + google, very interesting and unusual! You’re right about Hopper and Munch, I guess I thought of Diners because of the bar and the relaxed feel, but also the palette of reds and orange, and the rounded bar end. Munch is someone I’d like to look into further – an artist here (UK) who has been very popular is L S Lowry, like Hopper & Munch, the plot thickens the more you see.

      • So true, ‘the plot thickens the more you see’. I like your expression, that’s so really. Oh yes I like so much the spontaneous and freshly work of L.S. Lowry, It seems simple but so special and seems raw, but is so delicate. I like your gaze and comments. Thanks so much, dear friend.

  9. What a fabulous post! Full of art I have never seen before.
    I particularly love the Boccioni and the Malevich. Thank you.

    • Dear Francesca, I’m glad to receive another of your comments. I see you like to bet for the purposeful changes. You know that the both works you like, pertain of two tendencies almost paralels in time, when 19th century are going to the 20th century. In Russia the arte does great development with the geometrical shapes as a basis, and in Italy the futurism is so worried about how to depict movement. I love both works and specially the colours of The runner. Thanks so much. Best wishes, friend.
