I remember in 10th grade when my World History teacher taught a section about impressionist painters. I was in LOVE, but I never expected that I would get to see any of their paintings in person.
So, when I climbed the long stairs in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen…..
…..I was thrilled to find a gallery of impressionist paintings!!
I have long been a Monet fan and loved this one…..
….but was surprised to see that these two were also by him……
The same goes for Picasso. I truly enjoy many of his abstract pieces but was surprised to see this realistic portrait…..
You can always pick out the Toulouse-Lautrec pieces…..
I feel like many of his works contain men in top hats!!
And then there are Degas and his ballerinas…..
I like this self-portrait of Paul Cezanne….
He was able to recreate so much texture!!
And finally, this wonderful Renoir……
Of course, anytime I see a Renoir, I am reminded of the “Night of Living Art” episode from Gilmore Girls……
Since tomorrow is Free-Motion Friday, I have a BUNCH of designs taken from one rock carving. Come back for more!!
