As was said before, there is nothing like seeing a great painting in person. That's where the energy of the painting hits you.

A prime example is "Lady with a Parasol." It appeared at an impressionist exhibit in D.C. There were many famous paintings at the exhibit. But that one stood out head and shoulders above the rest.

The energy that is emitted from that painting is unbelievable. Prior to seeing it in person, I had wondered "What's so great about that picture?" in a sort of hohum way.

Although it's many years later now, I can still feel it. THAT'S what is great about it!
I looked up paintings called lady with a parasol and found about 30 different ones by 30 different painters...

Maybe psychic energies are embedded into the paint while painters are painting and concentrating and focusing upon their canvas for relatively long time periods which would be kind of like a type of ghost?!

This one by Monet:

Maybe because she's looking right at you.

Could be. But it only happened when I saw it in person. I have a small copy hanging on my living room wall, but it doesn't have the same impact.

I agree that there is nothing equivalent to viewing art (esp. by the great masters) with the naked eye. I would really like to view this painting in person, perhaps some day. I wonder what she is looking at?

Quote:The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a white Lombardy poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506, although Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at The Louvre museum in Paris since 1797.[2] The ambiguity of the subject's expression, which is frequently described as enigmatic,[3] the monumentality of the composition, the subtle modeling of forms and the atmospheric illusionism were novel qualities that have contributed to the continuing fascination and study of the work

Is she dreaming of him?

Is he dreaming of her?

Or are they dreaming of each other?

Could we not accept that women in their natural states are not goddess-like?

Well yeah beautiful women anyways and most women are definitely better looking than most men but certainly not all of them and even though beauty is in the eye of the beholder theres still a general consensus about what pretty and gorgeous women usually appear like as in 36-26-36 in the modern era and ancient goddesses are mostly portrayed and imagined as being beautiful but there still exists some hideous goddesses like medusa and then theres the golden ratio for physical beauty of the greeks and i've often tried to imagine a human being who is not male or female but someone and something else and trying to imagine and visualize that seems to be near impossible for some reason...

There will now be Canadian coins minted soon that will depict well known Canadian women...what took you so long? Here's an existing coin with Georgina Pope.
