Horses, riders, carts and donkeys (A tribute)

Hi folks!  These two animals, one very strong, timid and delicate at the same time, as is the Horse, and another enormously resistant and sacrificed, as is the Donkey, have been the ones that have most delivered and served humanity with their work.

However, over the centuries, we have mistreated them with our constant wars. The artists of this post have made a small tribute to them. Thanks so much for your loyalty to this blog!

  1. What a very beautiful – and alive – painting by Dali!

    • Aw Evangeline! I’m happy for your comment. Really as you appreciate this little work is awesome. It seems as if the bodies, both of the horse and the human figure, were just spots. It is important to remember that sometimes many artists invest in the creative process and instead of building from an idea, they assign a title or idea from a graphic or visual find. Just as in the photographic process, we must recognize that the random factor is also present in drawing and painting. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes ❤

      • Hi Sketch Universe
        It looks impulsive – unpremeditated – and as if the paint was almost thrown at the paper. I thought of the Rorschacht (can’t spell it!) ink blot tests. It’s the sort of work that I would like to have in the house, given the actual funds to afford it of course! (I tend to find art in pastel colours a bit insipid.) Thanks for finding such amazing stuff to show us.

      • Hello Evangeline, first of all I want to apologize for the delay in my reply. Very true, those brown splashes to me also reminded me of the famous ‘unpronounceable test’. The pastel does not have to be any insipid technique, so I recommend that you check the works done by Odilon Redon, with that technique. Thanks for comment. Have a nice day ❤
