Émile Bernard, La Chanteuse (The Singer), 1887


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.

    All your posts are interesting and challenge what mind I have. Is this a.Renoir scene done by someone not quite like Renoir? The few brain cells left of an inquiring mind want to know.

      🙂 This is a turn of the century artist, 1868 – 16 April 1941, categorized as a Post-Impressionist, who was friends with Van Gogh, Gaugin, Cezanne. I think he was an artistic model/inspiration to Gaugin (Gaugin was a businessman who became a self-taught artist).

    Yes, it is a nice illustration of brush stroke work, is it not? The singer in the foreground reminds me of Lautrec or Degas, and so do the outline style of the people.
