Vintage Erotica Tarot Deck. 78 different by vintageeroticatarot Doug Bloodworth | Photorealism Doug Bloodworth enjoys evoking the viewer’s nostalgic feelings of one’s childhood, be that in comic books, games we played, or our comfort foods. In 1974 Doug earned a degree in Commercial Arts and went on during the early stages of his career to work in several genres of the art world. From painting caricatures to billboards, Doug’s pursuits steered him towards the mastery of fine art techniques and a working mentorship with Marv Gunderson, the exclusive artist for the Marlboro brand. Painting iconic works on billboards all over the country was a highlight early on in his career and he still draws from the inspiration and lessons learned during the tour. Doug has since been commissioned to paint two 30’ x 200’ murals at Tampa’s Tropicana Field, a project which took six months to complete and inspired him to focus solely on painting fine art pieces. The influence of paper printed comics from eras past is still tangible in Doug Bloodworth’s photorealism.

Félicien Rops Félicien Rops (7 July 1833 – 23 August 1898) was a Belgian artist, known primarily as a printmaker in etching and aquatint. Early life[edit] In 1857, he married Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, with whom he had two children, Paul and Juliette (the latter died at a young age).[1] He produced a number of etchings as illustrations for books by Charles de Coster. In 1862 he went to Paris where he met the etchers Félix Bracquemond and Jules Ferdinand Jacquemart. Felicien Rops in his Studio by Paul Mathey Relationship with Baudelaire[edit] Rops met Charles Baudelaire towards the end of the poet's life in 1864, and Baudelaire left an impression upon him that lasted until the end of his days.[4] Rops created the frontispiece for Baudelaire's Les Épaves, a selection of poems from Les Fleurs du mal that had been censored in France, and which therefore were published in Belgium. Later life[edit] Félicien Rops was a freemason and a member of the Grand Orient of Belgium.[7] Art[edit] Gallery[edit] Notes[edit]

Claude Oscar Monet - The complete works Popular items for Tarot deck Dictaphone Group | About Dictaphone Group is a research and performance collective that creates live art events based on multidisciplinary study of space. It is a collaborative project initiated by live artist Tania El Khoury and architect/urbanist Abir Saksouk. Together along with various collaborators such as performer and producer Petra Serhal, they have been creating site specific performances informed by research in a variety of places like a cable car, a fisherman’s boat, and a discontinued bus. The aim of these projects is to question, as citizens, our relationship to the city, with a focus on public space, and the goal of its redefinition. In the context of war induced shifting geographies such as in Lebanon, the ironies of the war did not spare the post-war reconstruction projects. Bridging the fields of “social scientific research” and “art” is hence our approach.

Leonardo Da Vinci - The complete works The Druid Craft Tarot: Major Arcana Original draft by Will Worthington and finished picture Here we see the Goddess in her Cailleach, or crone aspect. It is the perfect image of Ceridwen as Cailleach, for 13 is the number of the moon and she is a lunar goddess. It is Samhain - the beginning of Winter. The Message of this card is: ‘The old and unnecessary wants to die. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei announced as art world's most powerful figure | Art and design The dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who shot to worldwide prominence this April when he was imprisoned by the Chinese authorities for 81 days for what were described as "economic crimes", has been named the most powerful figure in the art world by Art Review magazine in its annual art "power 100 list". Mark Rappolt, editor of the magazine, said that Ai – who was No 13 on the list last year – had reminded the art world of its wider political role, as an agent of protest outside the sometimes inward-looking domain of galleries and museums. "His activism has been a reminder of how art can reach out to a bigger audience and connect with the real world," he said. The highest-ranking British figure is Julia Peyton-Jones, co-director of the Serpentine Gallery. The Serpentine, Rappolt said, was "really growing into something freewheeling, and not limited by its modest space". Nicholas Serota, the director of Tate, occupies the No 6 slot.

Presentan libro con gouaches de Toledo - La Jornada Merry MacMasters El trabajo de recreación del relato del conejo y el coyote, hecho por Natalia Toledo, “me hizo pensar en mi niñez desdichada”, porque “no me tocaron las fábulas de las etnias, en este caso la zapoteca del istmo, ni tampoco las del catolicismo, que son también maravillosas a su modo”, expresó el escritor Carlos Monsiváis durante la presentación el miércoles de Cuento del conejo y el coyote, en el salón hispanoamericano de la Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP). Coeditado por la galería Arvil y el Fondo de Cultura Económica, el libro comprende los 33 gouaches que Toledo realizó para el relato publicado en 1979 en la revista Colibrí, de la SEP, que sólo utilizó 16, así como textos de Monsiváis, Luis Carlos Emerich y Elisa Ramírez. Para Gerardo Estrada, ex director del Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, la presente es una obra de “varios conejos que siempre se salen con la suya; Francisco Toledo, por supuesto, es el mayor.
