The reason I posted this picture is because first of all I really admire Raphael's work and I found this one interesting in particular because of the devil dog....what would cause him to paint such an animal? Especially making the horse a white horse with what seems like a angel floating in the back. It just boggles my mind about how he could come up with the courage to draw such a paintng in a time where Jesus was such a big figure.

The reason I picked this picture is because I just loved how peaceful the setting is and also how real it looks but then at the same time the reflection in the lake is what really caught my attention because it doesnt fully reflect whats happening on the top part and it seems so empty but yet so quiet and beautiful at the same time.

How to distinguish beauty from art...

Beauty Art
Now you may be wondering where I am going with this...and the answer to your question is i'm going where your mind wants to go. The picture on the left can represent both beauty and art and vica versa for the picture on the right, it is all in the eye of the beholder. So the point that I am trying to make is nothing is truly beautiful unless you think it is, and nothing is considered art unlsess the same goes for it. Because at the end of the day it just depends on what you think is beautiful art.

Is art or a face?

The author for this piece is unknown, but it interested me very much because it has a double meaning. Some would say it is clearly a face, but to me i think that it is art hidden within art. What do you think?
