Francine,

You are correct. It is Joan Miro's "Hope."

I wish you could have come over the water to our gathering this weekend near Newburyport, MA.

Maybe Lisa would consider having a Bellaonline gathering in Germany the next time we go to Europe.

I would love to see Albrecht D�rer's house in Nuremberg. I heard that you can actually touch his printing press.

Thanks again for reading my posts!

Can anyone guess who the artist of this painting is and its title?

Am catching up on the forum so late with this Camille.....as usual. Well will be honest and admit at first thought it could be Degas, but remembered seeing some of John Sargent's work at the Tate in London, the style and epoch are somehow the same, and I know he had 'a thing' about Spain.

Could it be him? Although he was an American he was very influenced by Europe, and European artists, but have no idea where this portrait is now, in the USA or over here somewhere.

That is if it is him of course. smile

It would be fun for you to make a short visit to Albrecht Duerer's Nuremberg house. The printing press they have is not original and probably that is reason you can 'quickly' touch it, but an artist shows how it works.

Know how boring it sounds but still love his 16th century pen and ink drawing of Praying Hands............and I am not even religious.

Francine,

You are so right! It is John Singer Sargent's "El Jaleo" (1882).

It can be seen at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

You can almost hear the musicians and the girl dancing.

It's a work of art and not real (of course).

As I live and breathe......edwardd1 is back!

Yes, you are right. Claes Oldenburg did make this burger sculpture. It is painted canvas, and filled with foam and ice cream cartons.
