I don't think he did the work for Alcest, no.

And thanks for correcting my terminology.  Like I said I'm not too familiar with art.

I don't know how I missed Moris' post about Art Nouveau. Actually I read the post at its time, but didn't remember it when I replied to Kevin. Moris, have you seen Art Nouveau stuff in Europe? And, are there Art Nouveau monuments/artworks in Croatia? There quite a lot of stuff in Romania.

The most interesting art news is the discovery of 271 unknown works of Picasso in France. They belong to his former electrician, who supposedly received them for doing various jobs for the artist. However the Picasso estate thinks no one can receive that many gifts, and are preparing to sue him. I guess they think he stole them? Anyway, you can see a few of the works in the image gallery in this link. They're pretty much top quality.

These Picasso works are great! I see there are a few from his early period too.Thumbs Up

Speaking of Art Nouveau, everywhere I've been there's at least some building worth seeing...even in DublinSmile. I'm not much of a traveler, but needless to say, I was fascinated by Budapest...there's some surprisingly great stuff in Italy too.

As for my country , yes, there's plenty of it, but there are not too many photos on the web, and most of them just won't do justice.

Here's one.



Here's a a tomb from the old cemetery in my town:




And some other visual art:

That facade looks just lovely, Moris. And the tomb is fantastic, I've never seen something like it.

Hopefully I'll get to visit Croatia sometime, actually that whole side of the Balkans.

When I decided to study art as a career choice in my teens, it was a purely intellectual decision. Nothing to do with Cranach, Titian, Correggio, Caravaggio, etc... You have to believe me! Tongue

Here's a photographer's take on Cranach's Venuses: NSFW!

For the record here are some of Cranach's Venuses:

Oh, now I know his name. I was terrified by his works when I was a kid. I saw 'Mademoiselle' in some book, and I had consequent nightmares that drove me the the edge of insanity. Even today I feel uneasy watching it.Embarrassed

That's cool too. There's a Messerschmidt exhibition at the Louvre, which is why I asked.

Someone who just died today used to say that Lisbon is the best place in Europe. Cry

I see, I see, I'll have to ask my sister, she was at the Louvre last week (how I cursed her!). I'd go too but am unfortunately tide to commitments (and I fly back to China tomorrow). From what I can understand Messerschmidt was quite a deviant from the norm of sculpture? (At lest for his time) I've not seen much like it from that period. The expressions are so full of life. There is good book on him too, which I plan on acquiring at some stage soon. Supposedly not much writing released on him in English, which is a shame. 

Any new finds in the art scene for you?

Wow, you're so global!

I must confess I didn't go to see the Messerschmidt exhibition, I didn't seem that interesting to me. Must be because indeed I know nothing of the guy, for a long while I thought it's probably an exhibition about German aviation. :)

I'm looking forward to this spring, and I'll post these days a list of the exhibitions around. There's a huge Manet that just opened at the Grand Palais, one about Rome and idealized landscape in classical art also at the Grand Palais, a Cranach & his times exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum, Tony Cragg at the Louvre, some fairly interesting but not outstanding contemporary art and photography exhibitions and, most importantly, we're waiting for the opening of Anish Kapoor's instalation at the Grand Palais (this a thing similar to the annual installation at Tate's Tubine Hall).
