Welcome to this blog, which is primarily devoted to art: short analyses or reflections on works which will include a range of genres and periods from German Expressionism, Symbolism, Pre-Raphaelites, Post-Modernism, Fauvism, Saatchi artists, Romanticism, Medieval, Classical, Austrian art, Dutch Golden Age, and whatever else. Some movements I know better than others and I am using this blog to further explore individual works and movements.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    We just started an AP Art History class at my school. I’ll share this with those teachers!

      That is very kind of you to say, Kurt, but there are such far better resource sites. I am neither trained as an art historian nor do I have time to do a full analyses of the works I have commented on. A good resource they can refer to for artist names and movements (although not detailed analyses) is on this site, although it only runs up to Impressionism and includes only Western art. http://www.wga.hu/index.html

    Kurt another site you can also refer them to ishttp://artintheblood.typepad.com/ and http://www.aparences.net/ (french site but Eng translation available). Museums are of course also good sources.

  10. I have a great appreciation for art and want to thank you for introducing me to a style I was not familiar with.

    • kinneret says:

      You are very welcome, Beverly. I’m not sure which style you are referring to but what I probably have the most up on this blog is Classical realism (which is like the Masters but contemporary, like a reaction to post-modern art), and Symbolism.

  11. Yes, I could have been more specific. I especially like the Hundertwasser (abstract expressionism?) I experiment a little myself with oil paint – painting is an interest that I have however I do not consider myself an “artist” as such. I sometimes paint from the subconscious and I named this style abstract expression without realizing there was already a category of the same name.

    Great that you create space for beautiful, powerful art!

  13. lbeth1950 says:

    Incredible lines and color!

    • kinneret says:

      Yes, Hundertwasser is amazing. He designed wavy houses in places like Vienna and New Zealand. That’s how I discovered him, accidentally bumped into his Vienna house.

    tap tap tap… Waiting for you to return…

    • kinneret says:

      So sorry. I was visiting my Mom last week who has pancreatic cancer. Needless to say, it’s taking a toll on me and she is still only at the beginning of what I know is a horrible disease. Before I visited I kept fearing I would get sick and make my mother further ill and then when I did go, I wasn’t sick but then became sick with both a stomach and upper respiratory virus that has now turned into bronchitis. It’s frustrating, you can imagine, to feel so sick yet not be the one with the fatal cancer. But I think I never had bronchitis before and it is really awful how it pools up into your lungs and you can’t lie down to sleep. This is Day 11 of being sick. Maybe it also brought some flashbacks of my grandfather dying of pneumonia. I will try to post some art soon but now I think I have got to start posting some that is buoyant to the spirit. (I looked on my bookshelf and it was crowded with all of these awful books, the most deadly topics, (Holocaust, forensics, partisan fighters) which I acquired for research purposes mostly with a novel that I’m still writing, but looking them over made me sad and a little horrified at my state of mind in the past two years. Where do you live, anyway, are you in the US? Curious.

      • Mr Modigliani says:

        Hi. Thanks for your reply and I’m sorry it took me so long to come back to it. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I am sure that it is taking a terrible toll on you in many ways. I do live in the US, upper Midwest. How about you? I am available on Twitter @mrmodigliani or at monsieurmodigliani@gmail.com if you’d like to pop in and say hello.
