Rashad Alakbarov and his shadow art Who can paint with shadows and light? Azerbaijan-based artist Rashad Alakbarov can. He uses objects that surround us in everyday life, combines them brilliantly, and reflecting shadows create wonderful portraits and cityscapes. How does it become possible? Alakbarov suspends translucent objects or places other materials (bottles, pipes) on a table, and they create light and shadow paintings on walls. A great deal of immagination and patience - and the artist m...

John Piper Covehithe Church 1983 _____ Piper painted this ruined church, near the coast in Suffolk, at the time of his eightieth birthday. It reflects the knowledge of architecture he had built up over his lifetime in two ways: he was aware of the existence of this quite remote church and he understood how to convey its particular character. This is an emotional as well as an architectural view. The racing clouds and fitful light suggest a personal sense of the ruin as an image of preservation...

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)The White Horse1898Oil on canvasH. 140; W. 91.5 cm© RMN (Musée d'Orsay) / Gérard Blot ___ A white horse, its coat tinged with the green of the vegetation, has given the painting its title. It is drinking, standing in the middle of a stream which flows vertically through the composition. The solitary animal probably has a symbolic meaning related to the Tahitians’ beliefs about the passage of the soul into another world. In Polynesia, white is associated with death a...
