artists in action – Salvador Dali

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Let’s restart our series of Artists in Action.

Salvador Dali most of the time appears to be goofing around or showing his distinctive moustache. How about some pictures of him in action?


‘The Temptation of Saint Anthony’. Funny how nowhere in the picture a naked women is to be found.

Working at ‘Dream of Venus’.


In 1965, working on the Bullfight series.

This photo shows how important composition is in photography, in art, in music, in life.

Strange how the perception of the photo in the middle now is completely different. This is not what the artist intended, but -to me- it adds something.

Pieter Brueghel (the Elder) – Tower of Babel

Monday, August 27th, 2007

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.
