"View of Toledo" | El Greco

"View of Toledo" | El Greco | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
Monica MIRZA's insight:

"[...] El Greco portrays the city he lived and worked in for most of his life. The painting belongs to the tradition of emblematic city views, rather than a faithful documentary description. The view of the eastern section of Toledo from the north would have excluded the cathedral, which the artist therefore imaginatively moved to the left of the Alcázar [...]".

Modern Take on Classic Art

Modern Take on Classic Art | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano - famous for being outrageous - decided to experiment, using Photoshop to manipulate ancient Venus masterpieces. - Tony Leather concludes : "Anna Giordano, as she famously does, is perhaps simply reconsidering societal subjectivity when it comes to cultural standards, which differ so much over the centuries, but her work does quite poignantly highlight the awful truth of the inclination of advertising companies in modern society to set an unreachable reality of fake perfection, leaving most girls questioning their self-worth. The times when girly girls were fashionable were so much better, and I for one hope they soon return. "
