Beauty is a very strange concept...an article in my Facebook feed about the song "It's All About That Bass" brought the paintings of Peter Paul Rubens to mind. Additionally, what better subject for this than the judgement of Paris.
I was watching Small Apartments last night (strange and quirky little movie), and James Caan's character had a passion for painting macabre art. So with Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would tease today with the art of Patrick Tang.
Bachelor art in the 1980s was probably defined by Patrick Nagel. I feel a bit embarrassed that I enjoyed his artwork and the prints that appeared in Playboy. I have decided to go with a 1980s theme this week...and yes, Duran Duran used Nagel for an album cover :)
Today's work is the Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull. After looking at Facebook, I wanted to see a painting that showed people who engaged in debate rather than spouting memes at each other.
