Living portraits of Christian Seybold – an artist whose biography was lost in the mists of time

Unfortunately, history has ordered that almost no information has come down to the life of some artists. But about them eloquently testify to their picturesque masterpieces, written many centuries ago. And it should be noted that they will still talk about their creators for more than one coming century. One of such miracle masters lived and worked in the first half of the 18th century. And his name is Christian Saybold.

Artist Christian Seybold (1690-1768) is an Austrian portrait painter of German descent, whose childhood and youth are practically unknown. Historians reliably state only that his father was from the German city of Oberursel, in the Prussian province …, and that Christian was one of 11 children of a large family. Continue reading

10 world famous works of art that were never finished

When composers, artists or writers begin work on their works, they are sure that they will finish the job. Otherwise, why? But their aspirations are not always justified. Sometimes it happens that works of art for various reasons remain incomplete. However, some of these unfinished works have become world famous and have enjoyed worldwide fame and popularity for more than a century.

1. “Saint Jerome” by Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci considered himself more an engineer than an artist. Perhaps that is why he has few finished paintings. For example, his painting “St. Jerome”.

The canvas dates from around 1480, and it depicts a repentant saint hermit against a rocky landscape. The unfinished painting was most likely kept by da Vinci until his death, but it is not clear what happened to her next. The earliest mention of the painting dates back to the 19th century (in the will of the Swiss artist Angelika Kaufman). Continue reading

Nudity in the history of art: How the attitude towards nudes from Venus of the Paleolithic to classical painting has changed

Thanks to Ivan Efremov and his “Thais of Athens” the general public became aware of the concepts of “hymnophiles” – that is, singing nudity – and “hymnophobia” – those who oppose the image of a naked human body. Since the topic of nudity in contemporary art is often quite provocative, does this suggest that the latter are currently setting the tone?

The first hymnophiles in art
Hesion, carefully massaging Thais’s head, timidly reprimanded her, reproaching the temptation of fate:
“And no matter how afraid you are, madam, to appear naked in front of such a gathering of soldiers.” They caught you like a dolphin! ..
“If there are a lot of truly brave and strong men around you, you can consider yourself completely safe,” the getter answered her with a laugh, “they are Hellenes, and especially Spartans.” Remember this, come in handy. Above all, remember that men are usually more shy than us. If we follow the customs, we find ourselves much bolder, and they are embarrassed. Continue reading
