The Friday Evening Nudes

And now without commentary...




Albert Gleizes 




Man Ray

Milton Avery


  1. so incredibly beautiful.
    thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I think I saw Botero driving a motorized shopping cart at Wal Mart last night.

  3. An interesting and lovely collection this week, Pagan, but I particularly like the Kandinsky and the Chagall. In fact, I could sit and gaze at Chagalls all day long (and actually did long ago).

  4. I like the fat lady on the bed; she reminds me of someone I know.

  5. Liza: thanks for letting me know you're out there. Fantastic blog, you have and once again, I can't comment on it because of the fugged up blogger comment feature. :-( But I am following. Wanted to let you know how much I loved the "cabbages" post. I'd never seen that Van Gogh before!

    Lemme: Botero himself or the lady depicted in the painting? :D

    Susan: the Kandinski and the Chagal are my favorites of that set. I've seen the red nude before but the Kandinski is sublime for the first time - even if it is digital.

    Kenju: I like Botero's fat ladies. What can I say. :-}

  6. inspiring, emotional, poetic, extraordinary!

  7. Great choices as ever. I love the Chagall and the Kandinsky

  8. Great stuff but the Chagall is utterly wonderful. What a man!

  9. Really interesting spread this week - hooray! I love the colors in the Chagall, of course. And this might be the only Kandinsky nude I've ever seen. Always a pleasure to see one of Botero's lovely full figures. Ambrogiani (new to me) seems to love the landscape as much or more than the figures - or is that my response... The Milton Avery might be my favorite in this set, though. So economical, and as lively and quirky as a blind contour drawing. My hand wants to make the same kind of moves - it itches to do so. Lovely.

  10. Flor Larios: I find your art to be somewhat reminiscent of Chagall. A sort of Khalo/Chagall hybrid. Thanks for stopping by. Lots of good stuff on your Etsy site. :-)

    Jams: my two favorites as well. But that Milton Avery. Wow.

    Mary: good to see you! Botero's generous women! His doll-like skin tones are amazing.

    SB: :-) A particular favorite of mine from the nude files, is this Chagall.

    Radolphe: Bienvenue sur mon blog!

    Steve: I'm really into Milton Avery right now. I'm glad you noticed it and liked it.

  11. Such a nice assortment of worlds...

    Aloha, Friend!

    Comfort Spiral

  12. this modern nudes are interesting certainly, but I prefer those of the Renaissance and those of Ingres
