Vilijam Merit Čejs - Bacanje prstena

Američki slikar Vilijam Merit Čejs je naslikao mnoge slike svoje porodice i druge dece. Nakon prolećne posete 1896. godine sa suprugom i dvema najstarijim kćerkama Madridu, gde je kopirao sliku Menine Dijega Velaskeza u muzeju Prado, Čejs se vraća u junu u Sjedinjene Američke Države da predaje. Slika Bacanje prstena koju je naslikao 1896. godine često se smatra za odgovor na Velaskezovo remek-delo. Danas se ova slika nalazi u privatnoj kolekciji.

Maks Bekman - Ispred ogledala

Baveći se žanrovima portreta, pejzaža, mrtve prirode i slikanja istorije, nemački slikar, grafičar i pisac Maks Bekman stvorio je veoma ličnu i autentičnu verziju modernizma, začinjenu mitologijom i fantazijom. Poznat je po grafikama urađenim uglavnom između 1914. i 1923. godine. Najčešći motivi na njegovim radovima su bile unakažene figure, ptice, plesači, ogledala. Danas se bakropis Ispred ogledala iz 1923. godine nalazi u Muzeju moderne umetnosti u Njujorku.

Drugi XVIII vek je u pokretu. Ipak, Tijepolo u Vircburgu pravi svoje remek delo - jednu od najneobičnijih slika svih vremena. Ironija barokne umetnosti je da nikada nije tako velika kao kada je ugrožena, nikada tako pobedonosna kao u trenutku u kojem svet, za koji je vezana, počinje da tone.

Šervin B. Nuland - O Mona Lizi

Odavde možemo krenuti još dalje u prošlost, dalje od Pejtera, pa čak i od Vazarija, od kojeg potiču gotovo svi podaci poznati o nastanku slike. Moramo se vratiti istinskoj ženi. Pošto je sa šesnaest godina postala treća supruga tridesetpetogodišnjeg Frančeska del Đokonde, Mona Liza di Anton Marija Gerardini je 1503. napunila dvadeset četiri godine. To se verovatno dogodilo sredinom četvorogodišnjeg razdoblja kad je Leonardo povremeno radio na njenom portretu.

Nikolaj Berđajev - O Sandru Botičeliju

Tragična sudbina nekih odabranih umetnika Kvatročenta može biti odgonetnuta samo dubljim ulaženjem u rascepljenju, necelovitu dušu Kvatročenta, dušu, koju su razdirali suprotstavljeni hrišćanski i paganski momenti. Tragična sudbina Botičelija, najvećeg umetnika Renesanse, koji nam je tek u novije doba postao razumljiv i blizak, daje ključ za razumevanje još uvek neodgonetnute tajne Renesanse.

The Kiss by Gustav Klimt depicts the two lovers outside of time and space through their passion and desire for one another. There is much debate about the identity of the man and woman in this painting. According to a widespread explanation, the man with a beard is Klimt's attempt to paint himself, which he rarely did. Some believe the woman may be Emilie Flöge, a close friend and his longtime companion. Others have posited that woman was salon hostess and society woman Adele Bloch-Bauer. There is another version that the sitter is very much similar to a famous model nicknamed Red Hilda. Some historians believe that The Kiss depicts the kiss between Apollo and Daphne or Orpheus and Eurydice in the Greek myths.

The Kiss by Gustav Klimt is one of the most iconic paintings from the Art Nouveau period. Klimt reached the apex of his signature style—a fusion of the linear compositions of Art Nouveau, the organic forms of the Arts and Crafts movement, and his interest in human passions. The couple on painting are entwined and their two figures and encompassed by a golden shroud, covered in gilded, Art Nouveau style patterns, creating a very sensual, atmospheric composition. Several other schools of art were an inspiration for this painting.

Gustav Klimt painted the final painting of his Gold Period, during which he incorporated gold leaf into his works, The Kiss in 1908 at a critical moment in his career. He had just received scathing criticism for his University of Vienna ceiling paintings, Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence, and breaking away from the Secession. The Kiss was presented for the first time to the Viennese public at The Kunstschau exhibition organized around Klimt and colleagues which was received with fierce criticism and ended in financial disaster. Despite this, the exhibition initiated the astronomical success of The Kiss. The Viennese government bought the painting before the exhibition had ended, as it was deemed a national interest. Today, the painting is in the Austrian Gallery Belvedere in Vienna.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard's best-known painting The Swing, originally known as The Happy Accidents of the Swing, is encapsulating humor and joie de vivre of the Rococo. The identity of the patron who commissioned this painting has eluded art historians. French dramatist Charles Collé noted in October 1767 that artist Gabriel-François Doyen had met an unnamed 'gentleman of the Court' "in his pleasure house with his mistress". He was commissioned to paint his young mistress on a swing, pushed by a bishop with himself admiring her legs from below. Doyen, uneasy about taking on such an indecorous subject, suggested Fragonard who readily agreed. As it was, Fragonard replaced the bishop with the more traditional figure of a cuckolded husband, but otherwise fulfilled the commission almost to the letter.

The Swing, also known as The Happy Accidents of the Swing from 1767, is the most famous painting by the French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard. It is considered to be one of the masterpieces of the Rococo era painting. The combination of carefree attitude and playfulness in the reflection of eroticism, pastel swirls, and pastoral landscape create an image of the beauty of youth and a forbidden love affair. Today, this painting is in the Wallace Collection in London.
