Cool Art

My exhibit features beautiful pieces of nature by itself, and with people enjoying it. Some of the artists are Asher Brown Durand, and Frederic Edwin Church. You will love these pieces I am presenting today because they will give you an idea of what life was like back in the 1800's.

I love all the water in this painting, and especially the small rainbow at the bottom which is probaly a result of the water.

This Painting of flowers was interesting to me because of all the different types of flowers in one vase.

This piece of art caught my eye because it shows a white man with a black man during the time of slavery.

What I liked about this painting was it shows and artist going into a studio to do what he loves; paint.
The Money Diggers, John Quidor, 1832, From the collection of: Brooklyn Museum
I like this painting because it shows two sides fighting, and also the fire adds depth to the photo.
First of all I love snow which is why i chose this painting. I also like this because of the nature around the person.

The Artist and Her Family at a Fourth of July Picnic, Lilly Martin Spencer, ca. 1864, From the collection of: National Museum of Women in the Arts
This painting makes me realize that even back in 1864 friends and family got together to celebrate July 4th, so it is just like today.

The man in this painting has a very serious look on his face, and seems very into his culture.

I like this painting because it shows native americans playing ball play which is now known as the sport they invented lacrosse.

This man seems like he is just living the life, fishing on a sunny breezy day.
