With the help of museum exhibits, you can learn about the history of the teachings of an outstanding resident of Vienna.
People don’t know anything - Max Ernst. 80.3 x 63.8 cm The expressed sexual subtext of this picture is a reflection of the free-thinking mind that wielded minds at that time. Nowadays, this painting looks rather modest and restrained, but in the 1920s it was a real “slap in the face of public opinion.” If some of the images in the picture can be clearly identified (man, woman, blanket, moon, night, hand of a hidden ruler, pulling the strings of sexual desire), then the rest of the elements are a pure mystery, a spacious field for violent imagination looking at the canvas.
Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose - John Singer Sargent. 174 x 153.7 cm The second name of this painting is “Chinese lanterns”. It depicts two lovely little girls in a flowering garden full of lit Chinese air lanterns. Traveling along the Thames, Sargent saw such lanterns in one of the gardens, after which he had the idea of writing this picture.
The Swedish Royal Treasury with the mysterious name Livrustkammaren is located in the Royal Palace of Stockholm. All this hints at the imperial origin of the antiquities exhibited on public display, which are still preserved in magnificent form. All exhibits Livrustkammarin previously belonged to the royal dynasty of Sweden.
Head and fruit basket (Changeling) - Giuseppe Arcimboldo. 56 x 42 cm. Archimboldo became famous as a master of allegory, but in this picture his ability to depict shifters was added to his ability to create images of people from various objects. These are paintings that in an inverted “upside down” position create a completely different, but absolutely normal, meaningful image.
Portrait of a boy Chelishchev - Orest Adamovich Kiprensky. 48 x 38 cm This painting is one of the first portraits of children where the artist really tried to portray a child with his entire inner world, and not a small copy of an adult, as they did before. It is not clear to our contemporaries that relatively recently, children were not treated as is customary now.
