- Venus Asleep Of Paul Delvaux - 1,386 words
"Venus Asleep" Of Paul Delvaux Paul Delvaux (1897-1994) Venus Asleep 1. What Does the art work look like? describe it. This piece of art work in my opinion looks like a dream. The art work has a certain disoriented charm. It has mainly all dark colors and uses these dark colors to contrast with the light skin pigment of the people in the painting. The painting has a calm erotic nude lady sleeping on a very formal looking couch or day bed. If the picture is read as this ladies dream then it appears as if she were dreaming of death or something of a cult like manner.

Vincent Van Gogh Perhaps the only way to disentangle, for yourself, the real Vincent Van Gogh from the creation of so many others, is to study the great mass of work he has left behind. Locally, his art is on display at museums including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and New York's, Metropolitan Museum, and Museum of Modern Art.

- Vincents Joy - 1,051 words
... d, he was a sensitive and good- hearted individual and sincerely felt that this was his calling in life. He was so absorbed in his own life he did not understand the balance of eating versus not eating, giving his own clothes to people in need, ending up with rags for himself. This behavior began to take a toll on his mental and physical health. It was uncanny that he could function within a normal world during this period, but it also seemed that his main concern was to describe this way of life in letters to Theo (Van Gogh The Letters). His dismal life in Borinage, came close to causing his death, but these letters to Theo seemed to keep him in reality. The letters Vincent wrote to The ...

Their struggle to define perfection and ...
