Today was another great day for us in France, and hope everyone back home is doing well. Today I want to share with you the amazing experience we had to visit the “Musee de L’orangerie”. This museum reflects paintings of great Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings located in the Tuileries Garden such as one you may most likely know : “Pablo Picasso”, “Claude Monet”.
It was really interesting to analyze, and understand the different abstract paintings of these famous arts, and learning to appreciate and reading through their work. A few days before that we were visiting another museum showing works from the 18th, and 19th century, and one of the amazing things that we could observe from the different works was how more abstract the work of art became throughout the centuries. Doing the 18th century it seemed that they focused more on giving more attention to the details of the painting, and had a really good concept of human anatomy. Around the 19th century with the upcoming of photography, we’ve noticed how they pay a little less attention to those details, and focused more on an abstract painting, and so on till the 20th century. It is however a truly remarkable work of art
Finally ending the day with a cinema seminar with “les freres Lumieres 1895”, and the movie “Paris Je T’aime” which I think was a really great, and interesting movie revolving around the theme of Love for others, and Love for Paris with this fulfilling idea of Hope. What was most intereting to me about it was how people living in a community can be so interconnected with each other. I would really recommend this movie. Finally ending the day with a very interesting documentary “The Gleaners and I” followed by great discussion about the different social norms, and how society may perceive the world within the France community but could also argue the same about other places in the world.
I am looking forward to the end of this week, and learn new things and materials on the upcoming week. Stay tuned, and keep checki our amazing groups posts, and moments we would like to share with you:)
