Pierre Puvis de Chavannes - The Poor Fishermen

Slowly but surely the updates to the main site Artinthepicture.com are rolling in again. This week I’ve added the Symbolist artist Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. If I’ve counted correctly, that should be the 211th artist on Artinthepicture.com.

Giacomo Balla - Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash

With all the other work I had, I haven’t been able to add a new artist to Artinthepicture.com lately. But today I’ve found inspiration in the work above as it was the first artwork in Futurism that I immediately loved. So today I’ve added the Italian 20th century-artist Giacomo Balla.

Let’s find out who can spot the most paintings. I’ll give my list later on.

Elevation from the Cross by Rubens: detail

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

Assumption of the Virgin by Peter Paul Rubens

This is a picture I took myself, and it shows. Cameraphones, bad lighting in the church and a painting up high in the sky… I did notice something interesting though, the side panels were also painted on the back. I haven’t really visited enough museums to know whether that is commonly done, but I seriously doubt it. Nobody else seemed to notice it. The painting is available for view in “The Cathedral” in my hometown Antwerp. We like do make things as easy as possible, so we just name our cathedral “The Cathedral”.

And for those that like decent quality, here’s a scan of the center panel from The Elevation from the Cross by Peter Paul Rubens.

Raft of the Medusa

Raft of the Medusa

This installation was an open air art project as a tribute to The Raft of The Medusa by Théodore Géricault. Don’t bother trying to look for it, as it originates from 1984 and only lasted for a couple of hours due to heavy winds. And there’s also a Lego reproduction of this painting.

Thx to user Enno de Kroon on Flickr for sharing this.
