Assumption of the Virgin Mary - Andrea Mantegna. 42x54 A representative of the Padua school of painting, Mamtenha (circa 1431-1506) wrote in a harsh and harsh manner, atypical for the classics of the Italian Renaissance. Virgin Mary rests on a bed covered with bright red velvet, amid a peaceful landscape that opens behind a high window in the wall.
Cavalier Rump and his lover - Frans Hals. 105.4 x 79.4 The painting of Frans Hals seems to be saturated with the juices of modern Holland, a young burgher republic. People in the artist’s paintings are full of vital energy. The military man depicted on the canvas is resting after the labors of service. Everything is fine with the cheerful and hoppy gentleman Ramp: standing on the doorstep of a zucchini, with one hand he raises a goblet of wine, and the other strokes a faithful dog, a girlfriend clung to the shoulder of a happy reveler.
Everyone knows about the tragedy that occurred on August 9, 1945 in Japan, when the US armed forces dropped an atomic bomb on this city. Today we will talk about the atomic bomb museum. It should be noted that the first museum building was built back in 1945, and the modern museum opened only in 1996. The opening was timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the bombing of the city.
Fall of the Angels - Peter Brueghel the Elder In the center of the panel is a figure of the Archangel Michael in armor. Skillfully working with his long sword and shield with a red cross - a symbol of the Resurrection (the final victory of Christ over evil), Michael defeats Satan and the army of angels, who in their pride rebelled against God.
Portrait of Iness Muatier - Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. 120x92.1 Jean Auguste Ingres became famous as a portrait painter, although he himself considered portrait a lower genre in comparison with historical painting. From 1806-1824 he lived in Italy and studied the ancient art and works of Renaissance artists. When the banker Sigisbert Muatesieu ordered Ingres a portrait of his wife, Maria-Clotilde-Iness, he refused to work, but later, having seen a young woman, he was conquered by her and took for the picture.
Absinthe lover - Pablo Picasso. 73x5420 century, along with technological progress, personal freedom, the most bloody wars and democracy, brought loneliness and isolation. This work is the embodiment of this state of emptiness and restlessness. A dry, brittle figure, clasping itself with its hands to completely shut itself off from the world, is immersed in illusions inspired by a wormwood tincture.
