De sterrennacht

..this might be the last of the MoMA series, most of the images i have are just some random snaps just worth a flickr photodump perhaps.. as elaine mentioned, i don’t want to post a picture of a picture, that’s kinda boring IMO.. and some of you were wondering how i was able to get snaps of these works of art, well, i guess if you don’t use your flash then all’s good.. now, on to the image.. that’s van gogh’s starry night..

The Starry Night is a painting by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. Since 1941 it has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Reproduced often, the painting is widely hailed as his magnum opus. (more)

..that’s 32 campbell soup cans for you..

Campbell’s Soup Cans, which is sometimes referred to as 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans, is a work of art produced in 1962 by Andy Warhol. It consists of thirty-two canvases, each measuring 20 inches (510 mm) in height × 16 inches (410 mm) in width and each consisting of a painting of a Campbell’s Soup can—one of each of the canned soup varieties the company offered at the time. The individual paintings were produced with a semi-mechanized silkscreen process, using a non-painterly style. Campbell’s Soup Cans’ reliance on themes from popular culture helped to usher in pop art as a major art movement in the USA. (more)

la demoiselle du MoMA

la demoiselle du MoMA

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (The Young Ladies of Avignon) is a large oil painting of 1907 by Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) which portrays five nude female prostitutes in a brothel on Avinyó Street in Barcelona. All of the figures depicted are physically jarring, none conventionally feminine, all slightly menacing, and each is rendered with angular and disjointed body shapes. Two of the women are rendered with African mask-like faces, giving them a savage and mysterious aura. In his adaption of Primitivism and abandonment of perspective in favor of a flat, two-dimensional picture plane, Picasso makes a radical departure from traditional European painting. The work is one of Picasso’s most famous, and is widely considered to be a seminal work in the early development of both Cubism and modern art. It is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, having been acquired by the museum in 1939. (more)

I was browsing through my library to post whatever nonsense I thought was worth posting while chatting with my good friend Sezzy when the mouse hovered over this image. Somehow, this image and her post’s title sort of looked like a good match. Don’t ask me why.. What makes sense to me probably won’t make sense to you. To each his own. G’Night..
