Beloved Works Of Art...

We were asked to describe one of our most beloved works of art of all time without naming the artist, title, or the medium. Here is mine.  

Details slowly became very evident the closer I examined the branches. There were people, faces, babies, men, women, old, young, in various stages, events, and scenes throughout life. Death, birth, love, weddings, funerals all were depicted within the huge and massive tree. It was incredible and I never forgot this experience of seeing this work of art.

I would be very interested in hearing what others have experienced when seeing their most beloved works of art.

LOL Indigene,

We weren't asked to say what the art, artist,title or image was! But I don't remember what it was called or the artist anyway and I couldn't find it I don't think even if I looked for it! Sorry!

Kathe Kollwitz, the German Expressionist.... look her up and you'll will see why she speaks to me.

Jen,

Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. Yes! I am very familiar with Kaethe Kollwitz. I have always been in awe of her work. I often think there are so many artists that are dead and gone that are perhaps not often thought of with all the hub bub around contemporary artists. Of course there will never be another Kaethe Kollwitz!
