the beautiful world of paintings (from musee d`orsay)

some paintings that I saw recently ...
and went: wow!

Sir John Everett Millais
Huguenot Lovers on St Bartholomew`s day

Jean-François Raffaëlli (1850-1924)Les apprêts d’un repas de chasse
Oil on canvas - 150.5 x 200 cm
Paris, Musée d’Orsay
Photo : Wildenstein & Co, Inc.

Georges Rochegrosse: Le chevalier aux fleurs, 1894.

These two paintings really look like contemporary works,
the theme, the colours, the ladies, the flowers,
the shiny metal armour of the soldier..
Something  very Jeff Koons like ... 

This second painting really reminds me of most of the pictures
you can see in National Portrait Gallery`s BP portrait award.
Why? Because of the technique, because of the theme,
the very realistic photography like instant.

Robert Braithwaite Martineau: Lecon d`ecriture de Kit, 1852.

These are from Lucian Freud.
Beautiful drawings and paintings. He is mostly 
known for his nudes, but
plants are even more captivating i find!
(this was an exhibition in 2010 in Centre Pompidou).
