I don’t think this one is a reproduction from a famous painting in art history, but I could be wrong.

Jackson Pollock

action painting

In our series painters in action there is one famous painter we could not forget: Jackson Pollock. It’s called action painting and this is the exact way how he painted his masterpieces (or his utter crap as some people might call it). His No.5 (if it was utter crap they’d be better off calling it No.2) sold for presumably $ 140.000.000 which would make it the most expensive painting ever.

Pieter Brueghel (the Elder) – Tower of Babel

Tower of Babel

I always love it when artists are flooding the museums to make copies. Amongst many famous historical painters, Edouard Manet used to frequent the Louvre to make copies of the old masters. This is the painting “Tower of Babel” by Pieter Brueghel the Elder which was displayed at the Kunshistorisches Museum in Vienna. I really wonder how many days it takes to get to that stage in the painting.

Thanks to xerxespersepolis on Flickr for the photo.

Joseph Murawski – Stolen Colour

Joseph Murawski

Not really a painting of the day for now as I’m getting more and more interested in seeing the passion and craftsmanship of the artists in question. The artist is Joseph Murawski and the painting he’s working on is called Stolen Colour. And surprisingly enough there’s also Joseph Murawski’s website.
