At the #montreal Museum of Fine Arts #mbam , there is actually a discovery exhibition calls : from the hands of the master II.
It brings thogether European works from the 16th century of Italia to the #20thcentury in #France
The main goal of this #exhibition is to present hand drawings behind the paintings, therefore, visitor has an idea of the works requested behind the beauty of a masterpiece. I went through the #masterpiece listening the power of #wagner mixed with the sadness of #chopin .
I was impressed by the #gericault where he drew the man who stands on a barrel(it seems that it's his great friend #delacroix who played the role of model ) holded by another,during the conception of #radeaudelameduse , which is one of the symbol of french #romanticism .
The story is the sinking of the "Meduse" near the African coast.
I had the opportunity to admire it at #louvre and to note the 3 aspects of this painting, the "radeau" or the raft where the few survivors stand, the #romantic and dramatic #landscape and last the people standing arou d the barrel and making sings. - 12 hours ago
