The Miraculous Draft of Fishes, Raphael, c.1515 - c.1516, From the collection of: Royal Collection Trust, UK
This painting belongs to the High Renaissance period. l liked this artwork because of its meaning. The fisherman tried to catch fish all night, they couldn't catch anything. Then they spoke to jesus about this as seen in the painting and jesus advised them to throw out the net to the sea. After doing that they were suprised because the net was full of fish!
The Origin of the Milky Way, Jacopo Tintoretto, about 1575, From the collection of: The National Gallery, London
Tintoretto painted this artwork in late Renaissance by using mannerist style. This painting is an interesting one since it expresses how the milky way has been formed! While Hera is feeding Heracles with her milk Heracles sucks her breast so strong and then Hera pushes him away from herself. Therefore her milk spreads over everywhere causing milky way to form.
Rinaldo and Armida, Angelica Kauffmann RA, 1741–1807, Swiss, active in Britain (1766–81), 1771, From the collection of: Yale Center for British Art
Rinaldo and Armida’s story is depicted on this painting by Angelica Kauffmann who is a neoclassicist. I find this painting really lovely which describes a girl and a boy’s love.
Medusa, Caravaggio Merisi, 1595 - 1598, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
This artwork is painted by Caravaggio, who didn’t use the manneristic style and used Baroque instead. His work is fantastic more than realistic. Medusa’s head, the Greek mythology Gorgon whose hair is of living snakes, is seen on this painting.
Cenotaph to the Memory of Sir Joshua Reynolds, John Constable, 1833-6, From the collection of: The National Gallery, London
A funerary monument of Sir Reynolds is depicted by John Constable in this painting which belongs to Romanticism movement. Dark colours and a heavy ambiance is used which evokes feelings of death. I have chosen this one since it successfully reflects what it wants to tell the viewer.
Gustave, one of the important proponents of Realist movement, has painted this artwork. I have picked up this painting since it depicts the struggle of two strong man with each other during the wrestling
Cliff Walk at Pourville, Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926), 1882, From the collection of: The Art Institute of Chicago
In this impressionist painting, there are two young women who are getting around the cliff. I really like Monet’s style in this painting since everything seems to be integrated to the painting and we can see the picture as a whole. Also there is nothing incompatible or inconsistent or disturbing, each object and figure and colour has been used in a very smooth way.
Wheatfield with crows, Vincent van Gogh, July 1890 - 1890, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
This is one of the latest paintings of post impressionist artist Van Gogh. I love this painting. When looked at this painting it evokes the feelings of loneliness! There is a huge wheatfield and the only living thing is the flying crows… Hitting colours have been used and the dense and intensive brush touchs can easily be noticed.
Czardas dancers, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1908: first state. Kirchner antedated this work later to 1905. - 1920: second state, From the collection of: Kunstmuseum
This painting belongs to the expressionism period. I picked ** this painting since it is really funny. Dancer womens are painted in this artwork which makes me feel very energic. Also vibrant colors are used which evokes positive and dynamic feelings.
Portrait of Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris (Spanish, 1887–1927), January-February 1912, From the collection of: The Art Institute of Chicago
This is an example artwork of cubism style and it is a portrait of Pablo Picasso, the most important man for the cubism movement - we should also count Braque’s name in here. The reason I chose this one is that it is the first cubist painting neither Picasso nor Braque has painted! It is painted by another artist, Juan Gris. The colours are mostly natural but sometimes other tones such as blue and red and black are used.
Return, Return, Shulamite from Song of Songs of Solomon, Salvador Dali, 1971, From the collection of: SCAD Museum of Art
In this surrealistic painting by Dali we see two women figures in the centre and also one more small woman figure on the right side. The painting is simple and plain when compared to Dali’s other works.
Red Squirrel, Hans Hoffmann, 1578, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
Hoffmann, the abstract expressionist artist, painted a squirrel in here. The squirrel is eating a nut and also each hair of it can be easily noticed in this painting. This is a lovely real squirrel so I picked up this work.
Shuttlecocks, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, 1994, From the collection of: The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
The shuttlecocks are the artworks of pop art period and they are created by the pop artists Oldenburg and Bruggen. They are actually a gift to the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art. The sculptures are huge, and they are four pieces indeed, which are put in different places in the museum. As can be noticed, these shuttlecocks emphasizes the large green lawn of the museum.
