Some more art history gifs for you guys.
So sorry for not posting in so long guys. Working on some new posts ASAP.
In the meantime, enjoy some other fun (if less educational) art history gifs (link in title)
Anonymous asked: (Oldpainting) If you ever do a gif of Agnolo Bronzino's Allegory of Happiness (Venus, Cupid, Time and Folly) 1564, one interesting fact is that Monty Python used the Cupid's foot for their famous cartoon on their show. :)
I didn’t make this, but it was the inspiration behind this blog:
The Ambassadors - Hans Holbein.
This was supposed to be part of a proper painting gif but it turned out hilariously bad. I thought I’d post it anyway for your amusement.
It’s not a GIF, but still an awesome moving art history thing. With bonus music. (link in title)
Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird - Frida Kahlo
Some extra information added by natterlies to ‘Olympia’ regarding the significance of her black maid: click
Very interesting, especially as none of my classes or reading about this painting have mentioned this aspect in as much detail as this, well worth the read!
Oh, and I also enjoyed this contribution from morcelu:
what if he just liked to draw boobs like everyone else?
