Interpretations of famous Paintings

I have developed ideas on interpreting art and they are surface level meanings, aesthetic appreciation and literary, cultural and Philosophical Interpretation.
I take paintings of Belgian Surrealist Paul Delvaux, Picasso and the paintings of Gauguin and Van Gogh.

Paul Delvaux Call of the Night

On the surface level, there is barren land, nude female bodies having hair of vegetation, hills and trees without branches.
To appreciate it from an aesthetic angle as a pure work of art, it is an elegant craft of displaying the contours of the naked feminine. The tone of color used is a rich nuance, producing an aesthetic effect. Everything is serenely placed as rhythm of light and color.
Let’s look at the painting from a literary, cultural and philosophical point of view. The painting depicts dream and reality juxtaposed together. Is barrenness of the terrain showing contrast with the sexual awakenings of the woman (the woman are veiled with hair)? Does the woman covered with veil, initiating others into the realm of sexuality. Is the light held the buxom woman an invitation to do the poetry of the bed?

Dead Watching

Gauguin’s Spirit of the Dead Watching
On the surface level, there is a nude young girl and man hooded in black.
An aesthetic appreciation we understand how vividly is the brilliant use of color, the dark and light shades forming an ambient tapestry of a picture of art.
From a cultural point of view, we find Gauguin celebrating the culture of Tahiti. As a philosophical art, Gauguin ponders on the questions of immortality, life after death and the soul. From a psychoanalytic point of view we find that the man is obsessed with a younger woman.

VanGogh

Van Gogh’s Cultivator
On the surface level it is a painting in agrarian settings were a farmer is sowing the field.
As an aesthetic appreciation we understand the brilliant exposition of color, light and shade forming metaphors of a painting of art.
From a cultural point of view we can understand that Van Gogh was influenced by the Parable of the Seed in the Bible. Philosophically speaking there’s harmony of man with nature both being metaphoric as friends.

PicassoGuernica

Picasso’s Guernica
From a surface level of meaning we can see a distortion of animal and human figures embedded in the canvas.
As aesthetic appreciation, we can follow the ingenuity of Picasso to create a new school of painting called Cubism. Art is shown to create an aversion in the mind. Looking at it we are overcome with a feeling of catharsis.
From a Cultural Point of View we can understand Guernica to show the bombing of a town called Basque and the horrors.

March 31st 2019

Morn was a sweet lullaby of colors—the sky became an art of painting—petals danced in the sky singing Beethoven’s Sonata. I thank God for this beautiful morn and I feel so wonderfully blessed.
I was reading into the Gospel of Mathew and I was able to finish reading. The Crucifixion made me said. He came to his own and his own did not recognize him. I quote Christ’s words: ELOI ELOI LAMA SABCHITNAI: why Oh God have you forsaken me?

For many years I have lived like the Prodigal Son and I returned back to the father and he has embraced me with joy.

I am recollecting my days when I lived in a Catholic asylum. I was into heavy boozing. Then I got drunk at the airport and I got arrested by the Police. They pulled my finger so hard that the steel implant in it displaced. I was in great pain. Next morning they released me and I called up my wife and she took me hospital and I had no clue as to what was happening. I was given an injection and I passed out. It is only when morning came, I realized that I was in an asylum. The male nurses there were brutal and used to beat me and used foul language. Catholics are cruel bastards.

Dali

Narratives about Art
I would like to analyze Dali’s painting: The Persistence of Memory. In it clocks are melting and are placed on embryos. Surrealism is an art that mingles fantasy with reality. The embryo is symbolic of Oedipal Narcissism. The melting clocks are symbolic are symbols of consciousness. They are also the symbolic of individuals who want to live cozily and comfortably.

Gaugin

Next I would like to take Gauguin’s Painting watching the dead. The girl is sexually fecund and the ghost is symbolic of sexual seduction.

There’s a painting of Delvaux called the Call of the Night. Dried up leaves are Symbolic of sexual bareness. There’s a woman who’s face and head are covered. Then there’s a woman standing outside a cave. This could possibly represent sexual initiation.


Next I would like to introduce Picasso’s paintings the Guernica and the Whores of Avignon. The whores of Avignon reveal that Picasso is a child of oedipal narcissism. The violent distortion of the bodies may be a representation of male chauvinism. Do you notice that Guernica is laden with animal figures bearing incongruous faces and this possibly shows the violence of the terror that was used.

Thinker

Next I would like to show Rodin’s Thinker a celebrated piece of sculpture. Rodin’s sculpture: The Thinker is a symbol of aggressive masculinity. The Thinker is viciously analytical. Notice how the body is stiff.

Next I would like interpret Van Gogh’s painting the Sower. The sower has its origins in the New Testament. The bright smudges of colors are reminiscent of mind that wants to paint the unconventional.
