Maria Machatova. You can taste the sense of timelessness that is an afternoon at the beach.

His collages are fun. Humor is one of the key elements. There is a Western theme to the lot. Its like a masquerade party.

The Great Race

18 04 2015

Something about boys makes them very competitive at a young age. Often this leads to arguments, even fights. This time it led to the Great Race.

Jean-Baptiste Regnault

If you overlook the religious/classical allegory element his paintings seem so surrealistic. Maybe this is where Dali found his inspiration.

Jean-Baptiste Regnault (9 October 1754 – 12 November 1829) was a French painter.

Regnault was born in Paris, and began life at sea in a merchant vessel. At the age of fifteen his talent attracted attention, and he was sent to Italy by M. de Monval under the care of Bardin. After his return to Paris, Regnault, in 1776, won the Grand Prix for his painting Alexandre and Diogène, and in 1783 he was elected Academician. His diploma picture, the Education of Achilles by Chiron, is now in the Louvre, as also the Christ taken down from the Cross, originally executed for the royal chapel at Fontainebleau, and two minor works – the Origin of Painting and Pygmalion praying Venus to give Life to his Statue.
