The Community's Art Gallery

We definitely need one. So let me start with this nice hijacking of what the Froggies call "art pompier" (not sure how to translate that: academic/conventional art/kitsch?) by Latvian artist Arthur Berzinsh:

NSFW:

P. – S. Is it possible to mark a whole thread as NSFW? It's a bit tiring to do so on individual images – but then I'm not surfing at my boss' expenses… :twisted:

Any man who posts a filthy picture not marked NSFW gets a night in the box!
Get the wax outta your ears!

You call the Captain "Captain!"

And you call the rest of us "Boss," you hear?!

You can always put 'NSFW' in the subject line if that's what you want.

Hmmm… Not everything will be so. (I think. :notsure: )

OK, to escape the wrath of Boss Paul – quite active these last days –, some very safe and Murican art: pepper by Edward Weston.

artnet wrote:Long-Lost Caravaggio Painting Possibly Found in France

The second, long-lost version of Caravaggio's Judith Beheading Holofernes might have been rediscovered in the hands of private owners in France, Le Quotidien de l'art reports.

Caravaggio painted two versions of the biblical scene in which Judith beheads the Assyrian general Holofernes to defend her beleaguered city. The first version, painted in Rome, is currently on display at the National Gallery of Ancient Art, at Pallazo Barberini. However, the second version, which was painted in Naples, has been missing without a trace since the early 17th century, according to Le Figaro.

While the authenticity of the painting found in France is still being established, the Ministry of Culture has already placed a preemptive ban on its exit from the country, following interest reportedly expressed by an unnamed American museum to acquire the masterpiece.
[…]
The mysterious second version was mentioned by the Flemish painter Frans Pourbus the Younger in a letter penned in 1607 in which he claimed to have seen the famous work in the studio of the painter Louis Finson.

If authenticated, the painting could be worth €100 million ($113 million). However, the Caravaggio specialist Mina Gregori says she hasn't found the touch of the master's hand in the painting found in France. But, according to Le Figaro, some of her recent attributions have been misguided, so her verdict isn't final.

The Italian experts and Caravaggio specialists Giuseppe Porzio and Maria Cristina Terzaghi are slated to weigh in on the painting in the coming weeks.

Classic phony backstory.

I love art theft/capers/forgery. Its always sorta elegant unlike the snatch and run crap that Skeeve pulls.

Interesting! We'll see how it ends (if the journalists do their work)…

For now one of the strange paintings of Balthus:

I've seen he spent WWII in Fribourg (Switzerland), where they put up a plaque. The irony is that, from the dates, he immediately left when the war ended. :wink:

↑ Excellent. The professional ones, no miracle there. One should put some of them through DeepArt…

On the one hand, we all drag along ~ 4000 years (at least!) of visual culture.

On the other, I always wondered how people who watch television ~ 4 hours/day can take so lousy pictures.

American artist Ra Paulette digs cathedral-like art caves into the sandstone cliffs of Northern New Mexico. After being cut off from most of his projects due to artistic differences between him and his commissioners, the artist decided to start his own personal and independent project and to dedicate 10 years of his life to dig a cave subject only to his own artistic vision.

Degas, Place de la Concorde, 1873 (some say 1875). Could go in the "Past" thread.

Degas had a very "photographic" way of framing his subjects in his paintings.
