The 4 Artworks of the Month

“Remind me if I get off track, but—beginning in June of 2017—I’m going to add four songs, films, and artworks each month. It’s hard for anyone to do this because the target audience of all forms of art vary, but I’ll see what I can do. Be ready for a scattered palette of works; it’s all for you!”

Objectively speaking, I’d say this—Diego Velasquez’s massive (126 inches x 109) 1656 opus Las Meninas—is the greatest painting ever made. Don’t get me started, please. Thanks.
Greatest WORK of art ever made? Michelangelo’s David (1504). Look at the pulsating veins on the back of his hands, the detail of his abdomen, the ripples in his neck, the curve of his torso, the bulges in his arms- it’s all perfect.

This one, Vincent van Gogh’s 1888 hidden gem Café Terrace at Night, might be my favorite. Who knows? It changes too much.

This is Auguste Renoir’s 1882 marvel Luncheon of the Boating Party. It’s not my favorite per se, but I’ve been really digging it lately so I’ll make it the debut work. Nerding out here, but I love the flickered lighting as well as the fluidity of the brush strokes; it’s a true masterpiece of Impressionism.

Thanks for stopping by.
