Independent Artists in Paris, 2008
By bblfish on Nov 30, 2008
On Saturday I went to "Salon des Artistes Independants" in the Grand Palais in Paris. In a huge space one could find a mish mash of paintings and sculptures from thousands of artists. The majority I did not find interesting at all. But that may just reflect on me more that on the artists. The ones that caught my eye as I walked quickly through the vast corridors of this space I took pictures of, and put them on flickr. So here are my favorites:
In another section of the Grand Palais they were simultaneously holding a retrospective of the works of Emil Nolde (wikipedia), a painter whose work was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and who was member of the german expressionist group "Die Brucke". The color of the Emil Nolde's pictures is as strong as Van Gogh's. Irreproducible. If you are in Paris, go and see the exhibition.
