Happy 32nd Wedding Anniversary to Bono and Ali

“He worked very hard at being the heart-throb. He came up to me within the first day and asked, did I know where his class should be going? It was just an excuse to talk to me, and I thought, ‘What an eejit.’ I remember that on the fourth day at school I saw him walking across the courtyard and it was, bing. That is the guy for me. But we waited until we were 15 before we actually started going out. We broke up after six weeks because I had promised my best friend I’d just get him out of my system. That completely bemused him.”

"Marriage is this grand madness, and I think if people knew that, they would perhaps take it more seriously. The reason why there’s operas and novels and pop tunes written about love is because it’s such an extraordinary thing, not because it’s commonplace, and yet that’s what you’re told, you grow up with this idea that it’s the norm."

LOVE

Photo of a fight in the Ukranian Parliament or Renaissance painting? 

Slap them all in togas instead of suits and it would perfect

It also follows a pyramidal composition!

However, I would argue that this picture is more Baroque than Renaissance. Notable features of Baroque art are:
Images are direct, obvious, and dramatic.
Tries to draw the viewer in to participate in the scene.
Depictions feel physically and psychologically real. Emotionally intense.
Extravagant settings and ornamentation.
Dramatic use of color.
Dramatic contrasts between light and dark, light and shadow.
As opposed to Renaissance art with its clearly defined planes, with each figure placed in isolation from each other, Baroque art has continuous overlapping of figures and elements.
Common themes: grandiose visions, ecstasies and conversions, martyrdom and death, intense light, intense psychological moments.
In the baroque, artists strove to evoke aesthetic responses. Now I’m not talking about aesthetic as in “oh thats pretty” I’m talking about aesthetic like that punch in the gut reaction you get to something.
One of the ways this was done was through the depiction of intense emotion which we see in this photograph. compare to Bernini

The picture also displays a wonderful use of chiaroscuro (an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on something) a style used extensively by Caravaggio and other Baroque artists.

 

This post just keeps getting better and better

Of course, if you are not in the US, you might have to persuade it that you are by, for example, giving it a US zipcode. Did I say that out loud?
