Well, I've talked about contemporary art and now, we will head to my favourite - modern art. This is probably the last post I'll talk about my new passion. I don't think many people care about art since they are no strong influence here. But, having the Andy Warhol Social Circus the last month here is the sign of how the art culture is slowly blossoming which makes me really glad.
Everyone knows about Louvre Museum for Mona Lisa and it's a must go when you visit Paris. However, the last few years, Orsay Museum is also one of the most visited museums in Paris followed by Centre Pompidou ( which I never visited sadly.).
It's majestic, I swear.
The natural lightnings shining on the sculptures. Everything was amazing and I loved it. However, I kinda have time constraint because I wouldn't want to miss out other things so I head to the reason why I visited this museum.
Thatched Cottages at Cordeville by Vincent Van Gogh
Rest from Work
Call me typical or what - but Van Gogh's work is always one of my favourite in this era. I am not sure if post-impressionism is in the Impressionism era, either but I found this work captivating. Every detail stroke and every brush shows consistency and patience. Not to mention that he was mentally ill and I always wonder what is in his head everytime he paints. Some of the paintings of his are only reference to what he sees and some of it hide meanings that only he understands. He never once explain them and many was based on assumptions. Despite reading many books regarding to him, I still feel skeptical about the truth because the only truth lies within him.
I'm sorry for being over- enthusiastic but this man right here keeps me wandering all the time.
And I love love love his work and my favourite would be the Starry Night series and Night cafe.
Starry Night over the Rhone by Vincent Van Gogh.
I wish I owned a DSLR at one point.
Look at how beautiful this art work is. Every detail is so overwhelming. Everytime his brush stroke over shows consistency. I stare at it for a good 15 minutes because it's too beautiful.
I came here for you, Vincent.
I hope you realize he hid his left ear which he cut off.
Les Cyprès à Cagnes by Henri Edmund- Cross.
This painting is totally french because I can't even find its English name on google. I love the colour palette despite it being all over. You can see its style on his own.
And finally, Monet.
Featuring, Blue Water Lilies.
Women with Parasol.
Monet's masterpiece - Monet's Garden in Giverny.
They are so beautiful.
'One day, things will be you and I'
I'm not even lying. This is my kind of romance . Nothing is more romantic than going on art gallery and museum dates. There is no need to talk about the art. Well, we can always look at the pretty paintings and get to know each other better.
The National Gallery - London .
Sitting in the room full of art is like a dream come true.
Oh god, I have too many cheesy art pick up lines.
Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers by Van Gogh.
This will be the most famous piece here because there will always be a swarm of people around it.
Two Crabs by Van Gogh.
Wheat Field with Cypresses
the crowd for Van Gogh.
Well, I only put Van Gogh & Monet's work up because they are my favourite.
I really do miss art museum visits. Now, this simplicity which I've took for granted when I am abroad has become something very impossible back home.
And, I've always wonder when will be my next museum visit.
