A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for November is Brown.
I start today with a wider view inside this gallery. It includes the grand painting The Death Of General Wolfe by Benjamin West, depicting the 1759 Battle of Quebec, painted in 1770.
My favourite sculpture in the building. Antonio Canova carved this marble, Dancer, between 1818-22. The first version of this is in the Hermitage.
A show stopper of a name for the subject and the painting: Erneste Bioche de Misery. This was painted in 1807 by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy-Trioson.
Bacchus And Ariadne draws its roots from Greek mythology. Dating to 1821, it was painted by French artist Antoine-Jean Gros.

I'm always amazed at the perfection in sculpture, like the dancer. I recall seeing a work at the Louvre of a woman lying on what appears to be a tufted air mattress and even her "bed" is perfect.ReplyDelete
