RUN YOUR JEWELS - DELIRIUM by Gergő Pocsai, via Behance
The simplicity of this symbol of peace by Pablo Picasso, remains one of the most powerful pieces of art. Art for beauty's sake - art for the cause of world peace.
Claude Monet is one of the great impressionist painters. This wonderful pastoral scene encapsulates the essence of how the impressionists captured the beauty and simplicity of nature. It also captures that pre-industrialist age, which was fast disappearing during Monet's life. It is an evocation of a bye-gone era. It is hard not to feel nostalgic about this scene. Notice also how the humans are but a sideshow to the overall picture.
The genius of Vincent Van Gogh is captured in this painting of 12 sunflowers. It has become one of the most recognizable of his works.
Sistine Chapel: Michelangelo took four years to pain the Sistine chapel. He chose scenes from the Old Testament.
A painting that symbolises the anguish and pain of modern life. It has become one of the most famous pictures of modern times. Somehow it makes me think of Freud and looking at our subconscious. It is famous, but is it good? Why look at the mud in the lily pond, when you can enjoy the lillies on top?
