Today is National Violin Day, so here is William Michael Harnett, Still LIfe- Violin and Music, 1888, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York. Harnett, born on August 10, 1848 in Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland, was the most skillful Irish-American still life painter of the late nineteenth century (his family emigrated to America shortly after his birth to escape the Potato Famine). Harnett pushed the boundaries of trompe l’oeil (French for “fool the eye”) with his work, which depicted everyday, ordinary objects but with such skill and precision that at times the viewer may forget that it is a painting that they are admiring. In this work, the violin and other objects hanging on a door appear incredibly lifelike, much like the ajar door, which comes to life with the use of strong shadow #nationalviolinday #williammichaelharnett #art #arthistory #violin #themet #metropolitanmuseumofart #newyorkcity #newyork
9/14 This conclusion is supported by the chair, tilted suddenly up on its legs by a mother startled into recognition. The empty room is a metaphor perhaps for the life she's led since her child's death. She places her hand on the glass not to wave, but to see more clearly the dim face beyond.⠀ ⠀ #arthistory #art #artoftheday #artwork #masterpiece #fineart #meaning #artist #realism #realistart #classicism #dutch #jacobusvrel #flemish #haunting #strange

Loving her work😍 #EzRepost @natalielennard with @repostigapp (4/6) "I want to show what's never shown in a Nativity scene. The divine, feminine power that brings Jesus to Earth. We all know the reality of biology, where Jesus came from. The design of birth and women's power in delivering a new life is the least offensive thing of all". Storyboards, stable and SFX blood. This is another clip from the BTS of my #Nativity remake for my series #BirthUndisturbed. Check back 5pm GMT tomorrow for the penultimate installment before we see the final piece. @marta.razza @beyondcontent @beyondnick @gayburrows @warburtonneill @davyjonessfx @sarahsmalldon @beyondcontent @broncolor @lupolight @phaseonephoto #paintings #arthistory #prosthetics #sfx #birth #childbirth #woman #art #motherhood #baby #pregnancy #birthstory #mother #nativity #stable #tuscany #christmas #christianity #religiousart #bible
Most people around the world don’t realize how rich American cultural life is, and how many treasures one can find in local museums, so I will keep writing about the things I love and am fascinated by. One of my favorite things to see in Houston is the McFerrin collection at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. The collection has deep ties to the Russian history and displays Royal and Imperial pieces created by the House of Fabergé. Having started their collection in 2001, today Dorothy and Arty McFerrin own one of the largest private collections of Fabergé in the world. For some reason I can’t add pictures to this post, so I will add more pictures in a separate post later. . . . . . . . #faberge #workofart #arthistory #jewelryexhibition #culturalheritage #royaldiamonds #finejewelry #highjewelry #pieceofart #jewelryart #investmentpiece #jewelrymaking #museumpiece #privatecollection #jewelryoftheday #royaljewels #exquisite #breathtaking #timelessstyle #modernwoman #colorcombo #russianhistory #imperial #бриллианты #артблог #фэшнблог
Boy fights. Boy wins fight. Boy gets girl. It's poetry, really. A very early digital work titled: IPR.

Tomorrow, join @beardedroman in Provo for part two of his discussion on how artists are trained — or born. If you missed part one, don’t worry. We will be discussion how artists trained from the 19th century to the present. Lots of great discussion and opinions last time. (I bet this one will bring even more diverse thoughts on what it takes to become an artist.) It will take place at the @beaux_arts_academy in Provo, which along with @ICAAutahchapter, has been sponsoring this lecture series. It’s free. It’s educational. And, best of all, the people who come are fascinating. #artisticarsenals #arthistory #arthistorylecture #artdiscussion #beauxartsacademy #artseducation #classicaltradition #modernarteducation
I was just introduced to the magical work of Spanish-Mexican para-surrealist painter, Remedios Varo. I'm in awe. Swipe to see a few more of her lovely, dark and deep pieces!
THE WAVE 😊😻😎💩🇦🇱🍭❤️🐡🐬👻🐠

Suas pinturas descritas como "positivas" e "alegres". Seus quadros são geralmente muito luminosos e coloridos. Leonid Afremov.
