Jean-Francois Millet, Women Carrying Faggots, 1858


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.

    Depressing black and white trudging through drudgery, ok, I get it, it is a boring job, hang in there, a labor-saving internal combustion engine will come along in sixty years or so. Wait long enough, and you will be able to sit on a couch and watch a big screen tv show a drawing by a long-dead French artist known for pictures of you in dull color working in the fields.

    I’m very interested in charcoal. This is a well executed work in charcoal.

      You are so right. The work should be carefully studied, life was not black and white, not flashy and glamorous for the laboring farmer, and he used his great talent to show it. He apparently lived a life much different from many French artists of the era. But my earlier comment was my story, and I am sticking to it, the work was drudging trudging well displayed in shades of gray.
      Thank you for the lesson.
