Robert Lehman Collection, 1975 (1975.1.199) | Renoir painted a great many canvases of single bathers in outdoor settings, timeless studies of fulsome young women. Innocent yet sensual, this charming nude would have pleased Renoir's audience in the later nineteenth century. metmuseum.org

Auguste Renoir - Young Girl Bathing  Throughout his career, Renoir made the nude central to his art. Young Girl Bathing is a particularly fine example of the subject, highlighting the artist’s maturity. The painting combines elements of the artist’s earlier depictions of the nude as perfectly natural, from the 1870s, with the classical bearing seen in his nudes of the 1880s. The result emphasizes Renoir’s belief that women may be seen as modern goddesses.

(via Studio Arts & Crafts / Jose Romussi). Looks like embroidery on an old photo. Love that idea.
Artist Jose Romussi breathes new life into old photos by embroidering colorful thread onto skirts and dresses. While the Chile-based mixed media artist has a website full of peculiar and strange collages, it's this fanciful series that has captured my attention. By taking vintage photos of women dancing and embroidering rainbow colored lines on top of them, he not only makes each photo decidedly more modern, he makes us appreciate each dancer's graceful movement.

i picked rhythm for this painting. i think rhythm best fits this painting because the designs the painting has attract you and the designs lead you through the painting. i feel the artist did the design on only one is to mainly focus on that part. The rest of the other colors kind of show movement because each color is in a different position.

Vintage Soviet Circus Poster...... This reminds me of something from my childhood. I can't quite place it. But it was the same basic ideas. You cold take any combinations of the three primary colors and with whatever color you had combined you could also add a design in black,

The "Mad Hatter" - Johnny Depp by Ben Heine ~ Part of his series "Digital Circlism" in which he made portraits of celebrities by placing thousands of circles one by one on a black background. Almost each circle has a different color and a different size. Time consuming for him, a delightful innovative form of art for us to enjoy. http://www.benheine.com/
Ben Heine, fantastic artworks -- Johnny Depp as seen in Tim Burton's movie Alice in Wonderland.
