My incomplete Monday exhibition" presenting you only three works out of seven. All because four days I did not have my tablet with me and could not monitor my Muzei submissions. 

#1 “In the Style of Kairouan" - This is the first purely abstract painting created by Paul Klee. This composition is an illustration of Klee’s ability to use intonations of color to evoke a musical feeling. More about the painting you can read here.

#2 ”Portrait of Simonetta Vespucci" - Simonetta, upon arriving in Florence, was discovered by Sandro Botticelli and other prominent painters through the Vespucci family. Before long every nobleman in the city was besotted with her, even the brothers Lorenzo and Giuliano of the ruling Medici family. At La Giostra (a jousting tournament) in 1475, held at the Piazza Santa Croce, Giuliano entered the lists bearing a banner on which was a picture of Simonetta as a helmeted Pallas Athene painted by Botticelli himself, beneath which was the French inscription La Sans Pareille, meaning "The unparalleled one". From then on Simonetta became known as the most beautiful woman in Florence, and later the most beautiful woman of the Renaissance. More about the main female character of Botticelli’s creation you can find here.

#3 ”Manor-House at Körtvélyes" - József Rippl-Rónai believed that for an artist not only is his body of work significant, but also his general modus vivendi, even including the clothes he wore. He thus became interested in design, which led to commissions such as the dining room and the entire furnishings of the Andrássy palace. I could not really find many details about this specific creation, so, I guess more about the artist you can find here.

gotta have this on my journey. and as I said before, when Amy was gone, the only thing I could think of was how lonely she probably felt, that took her life away. when I saw the news on Instagram (*I am not that active on Facebook no more) about Robin, I felt the same. he maybe had a lot of things all of us don’t and will never have, but how this loneliness was killing him inside…oh…I couldn’t stand those articles with a bunch of tweets from different Hollywood stars expressing their sorrows…all I could ask myself was why, you guys, being so close to him, couldn’t listen to him and make him wanna live again…or maybe I am so wrong…

I told ‘em it’s no friends in the game
You ain’t learned that yet
All the bridges you came over, don’t burn that yet
Ni@$as want respect, but ni@$as ain’t earned that yet

Are you equally pessimistic about love?
Woody Allen: You are much more dependent on luck than you think. People say if you want to have a good relationship, you have to work at it. But you never hear it about anything you really like, about sailing or going to soccer games. You never say: I have to work at it. You just love it. You can’t work at a relationship; you can’t control it. You have to be lucky and go through your life. If you are not lucky you have to be prepared for some degree of suffering. That’s why most relationships are very difficult and have some degree of pain. People stay together because of inertia, they don’t have the energy. Because they are frightened of being lonely, or they have children.

This was an interesting week on Muzei. For some reason I had two Da Vinci and two Monet appearing on my wallpaper. Is this a sign? Maybe! I like to think of that. So here it is, this week, my little exhibition.

#1 Monaco Monte Carlo by Alphonse MuchaWith his innovative design for Gismonda Mucha (a Czech artist) arrived on Parisian street art scene at an opportune moment. As Mucha later wrote, his poster was ‘a breath of fresh air’ which the public had been looking for. More about Mucha’s creations you can find here.

#2 The little owl by Albrecht Durer - Even though I couldn’t find nothing particularly on this painting, Durer it’s a very interesting figure of German art. His high-quality woodcuts established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance ever since. 

#3 Lily by Leonardo da Vinci - This drawing of the lily flower is the only survivor of the “early studies of flower copied from nature” that was recorded in a list of works done by Leonardo in Florence to Milan. A sepia wash was applied to the drawing of the model to show the forms of the plant in the three-dimensions. More about this study and other works you ca read over here.

#4 Hauling a boat ashore, Honfleur by Claude Monet - Probably one of the most impressionist and the one that’s got our hearts with his colors, with his different approach when it comes landscapes and portraits. Well, Monet is a true master of light and his works basically shout this out loud! Despite his achievements he was very depressed in his later years (*a subject I was reflecting a lot recently), he wrote to one friend that “Age and chagrin have worn me out. My life has been nothing but a failure, and all that’s left for me to do is to destroy my paintings before I disappear.” More about Monet you can find here. 

#5 Study for the head of Leda by Leonardo da Vinci - If you click on each picture you will see some more details about it, and as you can see, both Da Vinci’s Leda and Durer’s owl were created in the same year and are both part of the Renaissance era. There are only four survived studies, after most of them were destroyed in eighteen century. some art historians believe that Leda’s face in most cases was finished by his pupils, and instead Leonardo focused on her braids. More about the creation you can read over here.

#6 Liberty leading the people by Eugene Delacroix - Delacroix wrote in a letter to his brother that a bad mood that had been hold of him was lifting due to the painting on which he was embarking (the Liberty painting), and that if he could not fight for his country then at least he would paint for it. The French government bought the painting in 1831, with plans to hang it in the room of the new king Louis-Philippe, but it was soon taken down for its revolutionary content. Lady Liberty was eventually the model for the Statue of Liberty, which was given to the United States 50 years later, and has also been featured on the French banknote. More information about the artwork you can find here.

#7 The train in the country by Claude Monet The artist died on December 5, 1926, at his home in Giverny. Monet once wrote, “My only merit lies in having painted directly in front of nature, seeking to render my impressions of the most fleeting effects.” Most art historians believe that Monet accomplished much more than this: He helped change the world of painting by shaking off the conventions of the past. By dissolving forms in his works, Monet opened the door for further abstraction in art, and he is credited with influencing such later artists as Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning.
