Horrible, but definitely an eye-catcher.
this is just a joke, but Duchamp was better at telling them.
Une référence contemporaine à Bellmer avec ce petit détail du pied si tendre et innocent....
what planet are these people on.
I think you need to go a little to the West for the sculptor and a little more to the East for the subject. Neither was Greek, but I'll give it to you that the weather there demands few clothes! ;-)
It is white marble, it's a classic. You paint it a "pretty colour", it may as well be plastic. Also, there is nothing Greek about this sculpture. It's from the High Renaissance, in Italy and Michelangelo, the sculptor, was Italian. The Character, David is from the bible, also not Greek. But yes, the form and the medium can be said to have been inspired from Greek Art.

If That's Greek, then would you say that Francis Bacon come from Picasso? No? Or that Mirò comes from Picasso No? Well precisely the answer is yes, they do... But, would buildings from lets say London's 18th century also come from renaissance... or the White House from any classic reference? maybe roman? No! the true fact is that every thing is connected in line with its past but still, the evolution is such that it becomes something of its own right. And rightly so.
What an interesting idea.
I love how the keys are falling out.
there is something very violent about this piece.
not sure about the concept of this at all What is the point?
oooh I saw this in the flesh... It was suspended from the ceiling, and every now and then some mechanism would start up and it would drop down a few feet. The noise of the keys sounding all at once could be heard throughout the exhibition
i'm so drawn to this image, it reminds me a little of a young english artist called Matthew Darbyshire
Is this the one that is in the Tate permanent collection?
Great work ....
I love to see Picasso's sculptures in the same room as his paintings, you can almost see his thought process working as he transfers something 3d onto a canvas

There is a great delicacy to this posture.

the begining of ^modern art^
Beauty as a sole premise for art is so 19th century and bourgeoise. While aesthetic concerns are important to the modern artist, intellectual ideas and concerns are equally so. In signing a urinal and placing it on its side, Duchamp challenge the norms of what art can or could be.
The judges thought it was beautiful when it was laid on its side. :)
I dont think art has always been about beauty some of the prehistoric cave paintings were documenting life. Francis Bacon's paintings cannot in my mind be about stressing beauty. Yet Michelangelo work does it seem to me to strive towards capturing both beauty and perfection!
Agreed on the being aware of the concept of beauty with regards to the Lascaux cave paintings, but they are a thing beauty are they not in our notions regarding beauty? As for Francis Bacon the beauty isn't in the subject, but in the method of painting expression. It is a 'terrible beauty' to quote the words of Irish poet William Butler Yeats. The latter wasn't referring to Bacon's work but the phrasing of those two words seems appropriate to the subject matter Bacon was exploring. :)
