the beauty of a stranger

The beauty of a stranger is an exhibit showing the beautifully savage contrast between the landscapes and the living forms dwelling in the paints. Moreover, The beauty of a stranger is showing the gloomy and melancholic scenes that highlight a mysterious beauty in the paintings. For example, the feeling that this paintings provoke in my body is similar to the feeling of observing a person that I don't know and admiring his hidden and mysterious beauty. Nevertheless, The beauty of a stranger also is based on the interaction between two different characters. One of them is the stranger and the other one is the admirer of his beauty. In this case, the admirer is the landscape, the light values beneath it and foremost the balance that it is doing with the living beings below it. This paintings are a great inspiration for me because the paintings are showing a lapse between a poetically murky scene and a beautifully emotive one. The main painting in this exhibit is Witches Sabbath form F. de Goya. The reason of this painting for being the principal is because we can see a magic scene where the landscape is highlighting this horned creature surrounded by witches. This creature is the devil, although the painting is showing something more than only evil, the painting is showing a mysterious and gloomy beauty. Further more, thats why I choose this theme, because i want to represent the flattery of a beauty coming from an abstruse and poetic beauty.
