Turner to Monet - Art in Canberra
by Brumby ben
Eruption of Versuvius, 1823. Johan Dahl
Over 40 artists and 140 paintings of landscapes!
This was so interesting.
Bays and forests, water reflection and mountains, volcano and bush fires. Unbelievable, some were so realistic and others you could easily see the brush strokes. Some 15cm long and 10 wide others 2 metres long and 2.5 metres high. It was really amazing.
Johan Dahl liked paintiing volcanoes and when Mount Helena, and Mount Vesuvius erupted he was there and made paintings of this. Eugene von Guerard was my faviorite artist. Turner liked beach scenes and Monet liked brush strokes. Glover liked flowers and bushes. Constable did the Prancing Horse. He liked dark colours.
The art changed throughout the rooms. The first room had the earlier work and in the first room, the artists tried to make it look more realistic.
The last room the paintings were more unrealistic.
I didn't like van Gogh's paintings because his didn't look as realistic as the other ones I had seen in the other rooms.
I liked the Australian landscape paintings by Arthur Streeton.
It was a long trip down there but it was easily worth it.
