^^^This is confusing... I am confused  about what I am supposed to be confused about, what all the debate is about 

I didn't realize that's a large mirror behind her and the gentleman, probably a customer, conversing with her is a reflection too.
And I thought there were three figures (two barmaids and a customer) apart from the audience, in the painting 

Later learned there's only one barmaid and another one is her reflection but then where does the gentleman come from?

Confusion among scholars and critics arose from this use of perspective. Is the viewer meant to be the mustachioed man to the right! If so, the angles of the mirror seem off. Is it Manet's mistake? 

In the reflection it looks like she's leaning towards him and engaged but in reality she looks withdrawn and totally unintetesred

The mirror doesn't reflect what it's suppose to reflect and shows what it shouldn't 

Btw the brown bottle with a red triangle on it's label is Bass Brewery. This beer is still in production today Big smile

Las Meninas (1656) By Spanish Painter Diego Velazquez is one of the most important and analyzed work in western history.This painting has inspired many future artworks, including the above piece by Manet

Snapshots were more than 200 years in the future but Velazquez gives us just that in this enchanting painting Heart Star  a moment frozen in time at the court of King Philip IV of Spain Star



The center of the portrait is princess Margaret Theresa, eldest daughter of King Philip IV of Spain and his new Queen Mariana. She is flanked by her two maids of honor (Las Meninas), a chaperone, a bodyguard and two dwarfs and a sleepy dog. In the rear a gentleman has stopped suddenly on a flight of stairs, but to viewers it looks like he's about to step in or out of painting Big smile

A mirror on the back wall reflects the upper bodies and heads King Philip IV and Queen Mariana. They're placed in a position similar to that of us viewers 
 
However, it is unclear as to who is the true subject. Is it the royal daughter, or perhaps the painter himself (that is Velazquez holding the brush in front of the huge canvas, he ingeniously included himself in the painting) Or is it the King and Queen?

Are the royal couple posing or just watching? Some say that is a portrait of the royal couple not a mirror

No single theory has found universal agreement yet Smile

Silence, emptiness, alienation are primary themes of American painter Edward Hopper's (1882-1967) works.

This painting "Summertime(1943)", as a whole projects the vast emptiness of modern urban existence. 



It's a sweltering day in New York City. A young girl in clingy, see-through white dress and no pupils is shown all alone, staring out on a empty street with the backdrop of impersonal city building

Along with depicting loneliness and isolation of modern American life, Hopper's paintings also shows another facet of modern city life - the opportunity to watch complete strangers without being seen by them Smile

Dear Betty,

Lovely paintings, thanks for introducing me to them. You know what impressed me the most, the shadows - I am no great painter (my skills are limited to painting rangolis and lamps for DiwaliLOL) but then I think that getting the shadows right is very difficult, especially the light angles and the shades. They are simply brilliant in the above paintings.

Best,
Nyna

My pleasure Nynaeve and thank you.


You're right, shadows are tough...

(For some reason my fav. Hopper painting is "Summertime" Smile)

Since you mentioned the difficulty of depicting shadows, esp light angles and shades, I am posting one of his Etchings, "Night Shaodows(1921)"


This etching and many of his paintings look like a movie still, a scene from a film noir, he may have influenced the development of film noir 

His works have made a mark on pop culture, has inspired literature, movies, music etc Star
