Cuyp

"This is the way cities appeared in the 17th entury, before industrialization and urbanization of the landscape: Visible from afar, they loomed up before the traveller and the peasant dense solid structures formed out of the amorphous countryside. The low huddle of houses was accented by the towers of church, town-hall and by windmills. We view Dordrecht from afar, standing in the Dutch lowlands, the home city of the painter: he frequently depicted it in the background of his pictures. The massive church is the Grote Kerk; farther to the left is the town-hall. The actual motif here, however, is not the vastness of the landscape, nor the skyline of the town, not even the enormous sky, but a climatic drama, which must often have inspired fear. From the left, heavy grey rain clouds sweep across the picture. Rain is falling in sheets, to the left of the church. To the right, the sky is still pale-blue. Lightning is striking, in precisely observed, thick yellow streaks and not in naively imagined zig-zags. The distant houses are lividly illuminated. In the foreground, cows (two of them seem to be spotlighted) and a horse patiently wait out the storm. This picture seems to occupy a special place in the winning of the natural landscape for painting. It is one of the first representations of the thunderstorm purely as a natural phenomenon independently of content (e.g. a destruction of Sodom). This is an early work by Cuyp, as shown by the yellowish-grey tone and heavy brush-work, betraying the influence of Jan van Goyen. Seeing this picture in 1834, John Constable exclaimed: "truly sublime"."

You can watch this paint in Cologne germany. The Flash looks very astounding it shines and sparkle like there is silver setted in the paint

>hating modern art that made more money than all that old faggy windmill shitpaintings you post

also
>giant vagina art

those old pictures are an photograph from an old and dark time where no camera exists. I can almost feel the storm on the first picture.

But you probably will never feel the way i feel when you look at such arts.

I really really feel bad for you

modern art is in every way superior to paintings of dead trees and gloomy atmosphere, when I want to see this in real life I drive to east germany.

Worst thread ever

...

>realism bullshit
That shit's only good for portraits and only because cameras didn't exist.

I'm not even a NEET and I think Hitler was a fantastic artist compared to the ones we have today

hitlers was a draftsman not an artist. He got rejected because he sucked.

I agree with that for sure. The bottom left one looks like its facing a different direction and the top right one looks slightly smaller than the other one- not in a perspective way, but actually physically smaller.

You can almost hear the echoes of the footsteps in this one.

why are they bad? your personal opposition to the percieved message is not a sufficient arguement.
