René Magritte
‘The Son of Man’
Oil on Canvas
1964
_
Private Collection
_
Magritte painted The Son of Man as a self-portrait. The painting consists of a man in an overcoat and a bowler hat standing in front of a short wall, beyond which is the sea and a cloudy sky. The man's face is largely obscured by a hovering green apple. However, the man's eyes can be seen peeking over the edge of the apple. Another subtle feature is that the man's left arm appears to bend backwards at the elbow..

Claude Monet ‘Houses in Argenteuil’ Oil on Canvas 1873 _ On View Staatliche Museen zu Berlin @staatlichemuseenzuberlin _ Returning from London, where he had retreated during the Franco-Prussian War, Monet settled in Argenteuil on the Seine, not far from Paris. Renoir came here to work together, soon came Sisley and Caillebotte. In Argenteuil Impressionism emerged as a group style. Here, Monet and Renoir developed their fine whiskering technique, trying to reproduce what the friends themselves called "sensation première". They were about pure impression, as the critic Jules Castagnary should put it in his benevolent review the following year (see S. Koja, Claude Monet, Ausst.-Cat., Vienna, Munich 1996, p 210 f.) Monet and his friends painted quickly on the spot. _ The motive was secondary to this situation, and perhaps it should not be in the foreground. Thus, in this work, Monet presented some of the newly built terraced houses in the Argenteuil, which was connected to nearby Paris by a railway in 1851. The simplicity of the motif is underlined by the simple parallel construction of the image - meadow, house row, sky, no vistas, no expanse. But the finer the finery, the light green meadow with the blooming poppy, the moving sky, and even the gray of the house walls and the red of the tiled roofs are reproduced.

Henri Matisse
‘Striped Robe, Fruit, and Anemones’
Oil on Canvas
1940

On View

Produced in February 1940, this work is a wonderful example of the fluid paintings of Matisse’s late period. The model, dressed in an elegantly striped robe, looks out directly at the viewer, seemingly unaware of the cacophony of colorful flowers and foliage that surrounds her. Here, Matisse invented a composition that is delicately balanced between realism and abstraction.

Spring has sprung! In New York, that means that the Met's annual Roof Garden Commission is open for visitors. ⁣⠀
•⁣⠀
This year's commission was created by the Polish-born, Berlin-based sculptor Alicja Kwade, whose work  explores time, space and scientific inquiry. Kwade made waves last fall for her perception bending installation at the Hayward Gallery, which was presented as part of the widely visited 'Space Shifters' exhibition. Catch the exhibition, titled 'ParaPivot,' before it closes on October 27th! ⁣Members can access the museum with their Cultivist card.

CURRENT EXHIBITION
Vincent Van Gogh: His Life in Art
Through June 27, 2019
_
On 8 May 1889, Van Gogh reports for treatment at the asylum Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy, not far from Arles. For the first month he is not allowed to leave the grounds, but within the walls is an overgrown garden with pine trees, which proves to be a great source of inspiration for new studies and motifs.
_
For The garden of the asylum at Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh chooses an unusual viewpoint, next to the wall of the hospital. Due to the diagonal path with a stone bench, the painting acquires a particularly spatial effect. The exuberantly flowering bushes and trees are depicted in a tangle of thickly painted brushstrokes. Despite the huge variety of shapes and colours, the composition has both depth and structure.

Unos años antes Cot expuso el cuadro ‘Primavera’ con una pareja en un columpio y de técnica académica increíble. Quiso repetir el éxito y presentó 7 años más tarde este cuadro ‘tormenta’ ⛈ también con unos adolescentes que en este caso se refugian de la tormenta.

La crítica no fue tan buena, hay una divertida: 🤣 bromearon diciendo que, si los hubieran pillado la policía, les habrían denunciado por correr en impermeable transparente.

This museum at the tip of Manhattan is a fascinating look into early Christianity and the catholic church. The Cloisters is a well curated castle that offers you a glimpse into the secular world with immersive scenery.  The iconography is appropriate for Easter, given much of the relics and art were devoted to telling earthbound subjects the life and death of Jesus. Images were important to relay the Bible because almost everyone at the time was illiterate. .
