The famous Spanish artist Salvador Dali created the painting “Swans Reflected in Elephants” in 1937. At the dawn of his work, Dali was fond of impressionism and cubism, and then began to write in the genre of surrealism, considering himself the only real representative of this direction. In his paintings, Dali used his own method, which he defined as "paranoid-critical activity."
The painting "Swing" dated 1876. The work of art belongs to the brush of the famous French master Pierre Auguste Renoir. The painting has a size of 92x73 cm, and with a frame of 111x92 cm. In 1877, the canvas was presented at the 3rd exhibition of the Impressionists. From the same year, the painting found its place in the collection of Gustave Caillebotte.
In the famous landscape painting of I. Levitan, his painting "River in the Forest" occupies its modest place. The place of the painting in Levitan’s work is modest only in comparison with the rest of the artist’s masterpieces. But in general, "River in the Forest" fully creates the famous Levitan "landscape mood", conveying the "poetry of the forest."
The painting "Three Women" belongs to the African period of Pablo Picasso. At that time, Picasso was inspired by some primitivism of African art, combined with a huge magical component. African artists did not try to convey authenticity or beauty. It was important for them to speak of the natural forces opposing humanity throughout its history.
Salvadoro Dali is a master of surreal stories. The shocking nature of his lifestyle, as well as his work, surprised and fascinated not only his contemporaries, but also a descendant. Ordinary everyday images refracted through the prism of Dali's unusual consciousness become world masterpieces. The artist referred to his work as “man-made photographs”, the images of which were recreated using the then fashionable paranoid-critical method.
Savrasov is true to himself. Who would have thought that in Sokolniki, in this mud, someday high-rise buildings and paved roads would rise? Here we have before us Sokolniki, who were once. And that same Elk Island, in which moose still live, and not as it is now, is one name, and here the painter did not use to play with the light.
