Major Works of Art reveal fixation with water! Ok, maybe you’re not so surprised.
I was wondering how many famous paintings feature water. So, not being an art afficiando I tried to come up with the most famous paintings I could think of. Mona Lisa, Monet’s Water Lilies, that melting clock, the Scream and the American Gothic one.
Water in the background? Mona Lisa, check. The Scream, check. Melting clock, yep. American Gothic…well, no but there’s always an exception. And, what do you know, here are a bunch of others. Starry Night, Birth of Venus, Sunday Afternoon on the Island…. (Seurrat), Ok, that girl with the pearl earring does not have any water in it (but her headband’s blue!!)
And famous artists: Klimt? Well, really I have no idea. (Ditto, Picasso, Jackson Pollack) Those ballerinas? Da Vinci’s Last Supper—you betcha (gotta look closely)
