Using the Imagination Prompt Generator I found this great idea, so without further... blabbing. I present to you
Cannwin's Top Ten Favorite Works of Art
In no particular order:
|The Execution of Lady Jane Grey (on display at the National Art Gallery of London)|
|The Tub by Degas (Edinburgh National Art Gallery)|
|A Lion Hunt by Rubens (National Art Gallery of London)|
|An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump by Joseph Wright (National Art Gallery of London)|
Okay, I gotta tell you. That was harder than I'd thought. There were a few photographs that I left out because I had a limit. Also, I love anything Ansel Adams, I just picked that one because it's an LDS Temple.
I also adore Monet and Degas, but I find 'The Tub' to be my favorite Degas piece (best seen in person).
The 'Experiment on a Bird' and 'Execution of Lady Jane Grey' are both fantastic works to see up close. They are both huge and the lighting in them is genius.
'A Lion Hunt' and 'Rain, Steam & Speed' both create a feeling of more to come within me. A world of almost seens, and I admit finding myself drawn back to them over and over again.
Finally both the 'Pieta' and the 'David' are works that cannot be fully appreciated without standing before them.... Maybe none of these works can be completely appreciated without actually being there. Hmm.
