Weekend edition 1

Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Le Moulin de la Galette (1876)

The artist shows in the picture the atmosphere of the gathering : the physical and emotional. The sun spots make the mood warm, intimate and playful. And the main motif in emotions is flirt and relations between sexes. The painting is about friendship, love and intimacy.

Mark Rothko

Earth and Green
This is autumn. It is blue skies, but some leaves are red. The most are still green. This is beautiful, but makes you a little bit sad and philosophical.

Auguste Rodin

Two embracing Figures
The main lines are moving in one direction, showing unity of the pair. The arm lines perpendicular to the main lines show the desire to blend even more. The curve emphasizes the male initiative and female submission.
