Your weekly dose of some good and interesting news from around
our World of Art, because We Love Art.
Virtual Tour of The British Museum, London
The British Museum, in the Bloomsbury area of London, England, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture.
Its permanent collection of some eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence, having been widely collected during the era of the British Empire.
This iconic museum located in the heart of London allows virtual visitors to tour the Great Court and discover the ancient Rosetta Stone and Egyptian mummies. You can also find hundreds of artifacts on the museum’s virtual tour.
Gustav Klimt used one of the most unusual things as a fixative!
The Kiss is undoubtedly one of the most iconic works of the 20th century, and a painting with which nearly everyone is familiar. What fewer people know, however, are the stories about its painter, Gustav Klimt.
His obsession with cats actually led him to cover the pages of his sketchbooks with cat urine. He believed it was the best fixative available. The odor was bad, but worse, he destroyed works that would likely be worth millions today!
Artist of The Week by We Love Art
The best part of WLA is watching our Artlovers unleash their inner artists and leave us speechless. So it is time to show off what our community is creating all around the world.
Meet Eman, our Artist of The Week and one of our most regular and enthusiastic ArtLovers. She is having a lovely time on holiday with her family where they are painting some terrific masterpieces with the We Love Artboxes!
Here are some wonderful words from her experience at our last Paint & Grape:
ArtLovers Quote Of The Week
”Everything you can imagine is real”-Pablo Picasso
We Love Art Painting of The Week
Amused by the hype of the exhibit of Mona Lisa in 1963, Warhol unveiled his own version of the historical sensation, repeating her smiling face 30 times in Thirty Are Better Than One (1963).
In the 1980s, Warhol returned to the greats of art history, and created his cropped version of Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. Through his reproductions of iconic works, Warhol showed that a famous artwork can be just as commoditized as a can of Campbell’s soup.
Our Next Paint & Grape
We hope you Artlovers are enjoying the holidays! Last week we had a lovely Paint & Grape session before the summer break.
Our next Paint and Grape, the first one after the holidays, will be a lovely evening session. We will be painting the gorgeous Golden Tears by Gustav Klimt!
Looking forward to see you all!
