Top 6 December


Favourites from December.

Here is my top 6 of December. This is what happens when you are fascinated by an exhibition, and/or sit at home with a bunch of art books, soaking everything because they are too heavy to carry everywhere with you.



Dish from the Ottoman dynasty

Pottery, 1590

Permanent collection @British museum, London


Characters. Inspiration.

Just to remember that museums have their online catalogues.



The Vengeance of Achilles

Oil, lead pencil on canvas 300 x 175 cm, 1962 (scroll down)

Cy Twombly (1928-2011, American)

Troy: myth and reality (21 Nov 2019 – 8 Mar 2020) @British Museum, London


Painful and lyrical approach to image myths of Ancient Greeks. Expressive and subtle.



Cup, Odysseus is enchanted by Circe

425-375 BC

Troy: myth and reality (21 Nov 2019 – 8 Mar 2020) @British Museum, London


Simple and cartoonish image of myths. Rough.



Cyclops

Lithography, 1973-4

Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993, British)

Troy: myth and reality (21 Nov 2019 – 8 Mar 2020) @British Museum, London


Cyclops never looked so positive like here.



From the Finnish Notes

Engraving, 1992

Petras Repsys (b. 1940, Lithuanian)


Words and images. Diary. More than words.



Figure of cat, Qajar dynasty

Figure, 19thC

Permanent collection @British museum, London


MOOD. Face. Posture.
