Famous Paintings: Before and After
When you look at any painting your head is constantly looking for a meaning behind it. However, art is hard to explain, and even the artist may not know why he did one thing or another. The problem is that art is like the artist’s soul – wide and often unexplainable.
Nevertheless, people always try to explain artworks – some are known while others are still discussed. For example, Edvard Munch described his inspiration for his famous painting “Scream”:
” I was walking along a path with two friends — the sun was setting — suddenly the sky turned blood red — I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence — there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city — my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety — and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.”
Other famous artist, Rene Magritte also explained his “The Son of Man” painting:
“At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It’s something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”
These were not some randomly selected quotes – you are about to see very different interpretations of these particular works. Actually, a lot of famous paintings may be just pieces from the secret painting series!
