aron wiesenfeld‘s work is astonishing. his charcoal pieces in particular make me stare & stare.
as you’re not allowed to take photos in the museé d’orsay anymore, i decided to write down every painting i liked. notice some of the silly lists i scribbled… (far more difficult to do when you’re copying the titles from french, i felt like a kid learning the alphabet for the first time)
these are just a few that made me stop in my tracks….
cuno amiet – snowy landscape (1904) – this is AWESOME to see in person. i wrote in brackets “HUGE!”
winslow homer – summer night (1890) – one of my favourite paintings of all time.
auguste renoir - fernand halphen as a boy (1880) - the red practically shines from across the room.
odilon redon – eve (1904) – sheesh, his paintings are beautiful. difficult to pick a favourite.
louis anquetin – henri samary (1880) – wicked. possibly a new addition as i don’t recall seeing it before.
joseph granié – marguerite moreno (1899) - luminous would be the right word here.
these paintings are weird and wonderful. by guim tio.
i have a couple of places that are my go to spots for online art gazing. art inconnu is certainly a favourite, being specifically geared toward little known & under appreciated art. i tend to sigh a lot when viewing the pieces that the curator shares… my future house is going to need a lot of wall space, that’s for sure.
many of these are from art innconu’s flickr stream
