Real Portraits by Rene Magritte

20 Nov

Man In A Bowler Hat was made in 1964, which was actually a self-portrait. This portrait painting measures 63.5 X 48 cm which is now owned by a private person in New York (Simone Witherspoon Swan). The gentleman in a bowler hat wearing a black coat was Magritte himself. He used a dove accidentally flying through his face to cover his face. By his own account, he was quite different from most surrealist painters in Paris and despised using colors for portraits. He just wanted to tell the audience that the portrait was just an ordinary middle-class citizen. Since he never drew others, painting himself was actually in violation of the cases. Sometimes, turning one’s face away was using accidental things to block. This was another feature of his surrealist portraits. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com

Another Outstanding Portrait of Da Vinci

11 Oct

This exquisite portrait painting sale depicting the noble and calm Cecilia Gallerani is one of the four pieces of female works of da Vinci (the remaining three are Mona Lisa,  The Portrait of Ginevra de’ Benci and La belle ferronnière). The process of shading is the most attractive part in this portrait paintings for sale whose light and shadow show the elegant skull and soft face of Cecilia.

Da Vinci frequently theoretically elaborates the illumination of the interior face light source. Moreover, da Vinci paintings reproduction is strongly against the light and shadow contrast and uses chiaroscuro (the equalization of light and shade) to create the indirect lighting. Indirect lighting is enabled by a screen or wall to reflect the light. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com

Secrets in the Painting Mona Lisa

8 Oct

This painter named Ron Piccirillo was 37 years old. In turning Mona Lisa over, Ron happened to notice the images of buffalo. In the following two months, he concentrated on the study of Da Vinci‘s journals and drew the conclusion of hiding animal images. Ron declared that this painting represented the envy, which was one of the seven deadly sins.

Ron said, “In fact, Mona Lisa represents envy. It is quite surprising, because everyone thinks Da Vinci never leaves words about Mona Lisa. But now, it seems that he apparently left clues.” Ron also explained the unnatural bending of Mona Lisa’s right hand. He said, “This shows her contempt, meaning that she can use her own strength to oppose the God.” The eyes of Mona Lisa and the shadow patterns around her nose are like a palm tree. Then Ron said, “The painter hurts her eyes with a palm branch and olive branch and harms her ears with the laurel and the cherry tree. The triumph and truth is disgusting for Mona Lisa. ” Ron said that he found similar hidden images in the paintings of the famous painter Titian, Raphael, Michelangelo, and other Renaissance masters.
