Artsy Fartsy [Halloween Style] – Saturn Devouring His Son (Francisco Goya)

goya.saturn-son

In Roman myth, based heavily on the Greek myth, the father of the Gods devours his own children to ensure none greater than himself ever comes into being. It is this act of child murder that Goya has painted. The painting was never meant for public consumption, as it was painted on the wall of his house alongside several other grim paintings known collectively as ‘The Black Paintings.’ Some see the painting as a comment on the aging process that must have been playing out in the aging artist’s mind. Of the Black Paintings which Goya completed the other most famous work is probably his Witches’ Sabbath.

Saturn devouring one of his children is on display in the Museo del Prado in Madrid.

According to Belgium website Jalopnik, 25-year-old Jasmien Claeys was the driver of this unfortunate car.  Her Ford Focus slammed into the back of a truck and then was nearly shattered by a second truck — which had the dashcam we saw. Amazingly, Jasmien survived, but was in a coma for days, with a shattered hand and two broken vertebrae — VERY lucky to be alive.

Have you ever seen people do this in front of you? Please share this video with anyone you think could use the wake up call.

Artsy Fartsy – There Is Always Hope (2007) – Banksy

Banksy’s Girl With Balloon is one of the more talked about pieces in his career. The original work depicts a young girl losing a heart-shaped balloon to the wind. There is also a small quote etched into the staircase that reads, “There is always hope.” The girl is seen standing in front of a gust of wind in black and white. Her balloon is painted in bright red.

The heart-shape represents love, hope, innocence, childhood, and even self-confidence. It is not clear if the piece is supposed to represent a loss of hope or that what you desire is within your reach. The quote seems to suggest the latter.

Artsy Fartsy – The Lovers by Rene Magritte

the-lovers

The Lovers is a painting by French surrealist Rene Magritte, created in 1928. 

The painting depicts a veiled couple embracing and kissing. Obviously symbolic, many have speculated about why the couple is veiled. Many have also interpreted the painting in different ways – the common interpretation being “Love is blind”. 

Do you have any opinions about the meaning of the painting? 

The Lovers can be viewed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
