Composition by painting or essays by young art historians

Have you ever written an essay on a painting? Well, if you do not take into account those who are doing this professionally, that is, they write articles on art history, then there will probably be a lot of such ones. In high school, teachers of the Russian language and the development of speech often conduct essays on the picture – this is an important part of the curriculum, but everyone has different impressions of him. And how do you like it? For some, the composition of the picture was remembered as a boring, dreary, completely useless lesson, but for me, for example, it was the most coveted, incredibly creative and informative.

World masterpieces of fine art do not leave anyone indifferent – this has been proven many times, but how to start acquaintance with them in order to gradually penetrate, understand everything and Continue reading

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

For many centuries, the Bible has been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists, poets, and writers. Without claiming to be innovative, we will see how the three great artists refracted the same parable in the crystal of their work.

The parable of the prodigal son tells us that the son left home, returned naked and barefoot. The father received him, ordered to kill the fat calf in honor of the return of his son. In the era of religious wars, violent peasant uprisings, Jacquerie and Bashmak, this parable was very relevant and two great contemporaries, Bosch and Durer turned to this story, showing us different facets and reasons for the appearance “Prodigal sons.” The third of the great artists examined here, Rembrandt, was born eighty years after the death of the youngest of them, Dürer, in a more relaxed era and his interpretation of the parable is much calmer than the works of Bosch and, especially, Dürer, saturated with tragedy.

Monet Claude Oscar

Claude Oscar Monet was born in Paris on November 14, 1840. When the future artist was five years old, his family moved to the port city of Le Havre on the coast of Normandy, where Monet spent his childhood and early youth. At school, Monet did very mediocre in all subjects, with the exception of one – drawing, where Claude showed the artist’s innate talent, and primarily as a cartoonist. At age 15, he was already selling his cartoons and even gained some fame locally. Around the same time, Monet met the artist Eugene Boudin, who persuaded Claude to work out on landscapes, and the young Monet discovered that this was his calling. Boudin loved to write in nature, because he believed that only in this way can you capture what the artist saw in all its purity and freshness. Monet was carried away by this idea, and subsequently it became one of the cornerstones, both for the work of the artist himself and for impressionism as a whole.

Monet spends 1859-1860 in Paris, where he studies art. His student life, like the first years of his career Continue reading
