Three Graces was made by Antonio Canova between 1803 and 1806. It is one of the examples of Neoclassicism. It is in the The State Hermitage museum. I chose that work of art because it describes the love between 3 girls in a different way.
Statue of the Madonna in the Mountains was made by Casper David Friedrich in 1804. It is one of the examples of Romanticism and it is in the Art Institute of Chicago. I choose that work of art because even if I did not know which movement style it belongs, I would say Romanticism.
Portrait of Cosimo de' Medici the Elder was made Jacopa Carrucci in 1519. It is one of the examples of Mannerism. Uffizi Gallery hosts the portrait. I chose this portrait because the date of creation of this portrait is 1519. That means that this portrait has above 480 years history.
Sacred Allegory was made by Giovanni Bellini in between 1490-1500. It was one of the examples of High Renaissance and it is in the Uffizi Gallery. When I searched the internet about that painting, I saw that the exact meaning of the painting had not been yet completely understood. This is the main reason why I picked that painting.
Aurora abducting Cephalus was made by Peter Paul Rubens in 1636. It was one of the examples of Baroque style and it is in the National Gallery, London. I chose that painting because the design and the colors of the painting are really interesting for me.
Christ taking Leave of his Mother was made by Albrecht Altdorfer about 1520. It is one of the examples of Surrealism and National Gallery, London hosts this painting. In this picture Christ says farewell to his mother Mary which I find it very sensational.

This work of art above was made by Louise Bourgeois in 1990. It is one of the examples of Abstract Expressionism and it is in MOMA. I chose that work of art because of the creator of it, was one of the most important supporters of the Abstract Expressionism.
St's Peter and Paul was made El Greco in 1587. It is one of the examples of Expressionism and it is in the The State Hermitage museum. In this painting the artist reflect on religious concerns and to contrast their different personalities: St Paul is devout and passionate, St Peter gentle and meek. That is the reason why I picked that painting.
Alka Seltzer was made by Roy Lichtenstein in 1966. It is one of the examples of Pop Art and it is in the Art Institute of Chicago. I chose this drawing because as I searched on the internet the artists was very successful at exploited everyday practices of visual representation and magnified them. This is the main reason why I picked that drawing.
Still Life with Three Puppies was made by Paul Gauguin in 1888. It was one of the examples of Post-impressionism and it is in the MOMA. As I learned Gauguin drew stylistic inspiration for this painting from children’s-book illustrations and from Japanese prints, which were introduced to him by his friend and fellow artist Vincent van Gogh that year. I found that very interesting and I decided to use that painting.
The Beach at Sainte-Adresse was made by Claude Monet in 1867. It is one of the examples of Impressionism and it is in the Art Institute of Chicago. Since she was a founder of French impressionist painting I decided to choose from her paintings.
Jesus Mocked by the Soldiers was made by Édouard Manet in 1865. It was one of the examples of Realism and it is in the Art Institute of Chicago. As I found this painting was one of only two religious paintings created in Manet’s entire career. That is the main reason why I picked that painting.
