“Woman in Neapolitan Costume”, 1635 ~ by Massimo Stanzione

I just happened across this series entitled After Master by Yin Xin. By far my faourite is the Birth of Venus. Yin has taken classic master paintings and replaced their Western subjects with Chinese ones. LOVES IT. 

  • Top is Birth of Venus by Boticelli.
  • Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe by Manet.
  • Venus and the Lute Player by Titian
  • Mona Lisa by Da Vinci

I also really like this one

Detail of an illustration by Simon Marmion for the Visio Tnugdali, a medieval vision of hell and heaven; it shows the gaping mouth of a monster, in whose belly poor souls are tortured. The mouth is held open by two giants, one of them standing on his head. (x)

I wonder if they ever switch?

Francesco Del Cossa, St Lucy
Yeah, just holdin’ an eye flower. S’ok.

Look at her face. I doubt she thinks it’s okay at all. I think she is questioning your taste in eye flowers and wondering why you gave her such a clearly inferior specimen.

KCI: This velvet jacket and pleated tartan skirt ensemble is associated with Scotland’s traditional garb. Tartan is a check cloth deriving from approximately the tenth century in Scotland, where the designs were used in the manner of a crest or emblem, to show clan and family affiliations. Even Queen Victoria, a leader in fashion at the time, loved tartan. It is said that the fad of tartan in women’s clothing was due to her influence.

Ai Weiwei - Sunflower Seeds (2010) - 100 million porcelain seed husks

Sunflower Seeds is made up of millions of small works, each apparently identical, but actually unique. However realistic they may seem, these life-sized sunflower seed husks are in fact intricately hand-crafted in porcelain.

Each seed was individually sculpted and painted by specialists working in small-scale workshops in the Chinese city of Jingdezhen. Far from being industrially produced, they are the effort of hundreds of skilled hands. Poured into the interior of the Turbine Hall’s vast industrial space, the 100 million seeds form a seemingly infinite landscape.

Porcelain is almost synonymous with China and, to make this work, Ai Weiwei manipulated traditional methods of crafting what has historically been one of China’s most prized exports.”

September 5, 1774: Caspar David Friedrich is born.

Here is a man who has discovered the tragedy of landscape.
