While searching the internet I stumble upon a lot of amazing artist and can't keep them to myself anymore. Majority of the artworks on this page will not be my own, but I want to promote awareness of different artists from old to new.
For most of his career, Bernini couldn’t be bothered to leave Italy so when the French wanted him to do busts they would send him portraits from different angles like this one of Cardinal Richelieu. They finally managed to get him to go to France when he was an old man, but he just ended up being rude and snooty as fuck to the French court because hey, its fucking Bernini.
Philippe de Champaigne, Triple Portrait of Cardinal de Richelieu, 1637
Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Bust of Cardinal Richilieu, 1640-1641

The painter, Maurice Grosser, visited his friend O’Keeffe’s ranch in 1944. Maria Chabot photographed O’Keeffe and Grosser on his 1938 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead. It’s an amazing image that celebrates denim, machine, and the joy of the open road. That look on O’Keeffe’s face says it all.
