a pinterest view of art - oct 9 2014
A small selection of images from the Google Cultural Institute databases
I wanted to look at the lines in this image that is full of line detail.
This is interesting to me for the colours Durer uses and for the background explosions. The background details reminded me of the poet William Blake's imagery in Songs of Innocence and of Experience.
Collage-like: I enjoy the contrast between dark background wash and foreground figures with tree. It's intriguing: Adam is holding the cut top of an apple that Eve appears to be with-holding from him.
Always loved this image of the hare by Durer, its detail, texture, and quietness.
Chosen for its delicate graphic details and poetic evocation of mist in a landscape
Found it difficult to look at this painting well on screen, but liked the sense of being up in the sky looking down at the ground and the myriad places below.
A pleasing image of children reading, presumably on a snowy winter day. The light inside the room is enhanced by the white snow outside.
I like the depiction of the trees in this scene of winter washing in a Finnish village. I also like the feel of reportage.
Delicate pale colours and expressive swirls of paint in a wintery image
A book illustration of Phyllis Wheatley (was she related to her employer, Mr Wheatley?) or was her surname the cultural legacy of slavery? An image that needs more historical contextual explanation.
