Exceptional Art History: part 2

A month ago, I posted on a series of lectures by Micah Christensen.  Since then, there are few more lectures that have gone up on his site and on Vimeo.  The post ended up being a popular one (the lectures are excellent, so no surprise there) so I am adding the last few videos from this series.

They happened to be given nearby my home and Shari and I made it a weekly tradition to get art history and a dinner each Thursday night.  We are going through withdrawals now, but look forward to the fall when Micah has assured me they will start up again!

A wonderful lecture on Ingres:


Jean-Aguste-Dominique Ingres (French, 1780-1867) from Micah Christensen on Vimeo.

The Neo-Classical giant, David:


Jacques-Louis David (French, 1748-1825) from Micah Christensen on Vimeo.

A very interesting lecture on an artist that I didn't know a lot about before hand.  If you don't know much about Géricault, be sure to give this one a listen.


Théodore Géricault (French, 1791-1824) from Micah Christensen on Vimeo.


I have had the chance to go on a few adventures lately and am looking forward to posting about them.  Over the next couple months, I will post about:

Portrait Society of America Conference
Traveling to Italy (or taking The Grand Tour)
Review of Cesar Santos' Secrets of Portrait Painting
Review of Scott Waddell's excellent painting video On Form

Stay tuned and thank you for everyone that makes Muddy Colors so great to be part of!

  2. Hi, i would like to comment on Doctor Osemu Okpamen and his dealing with my need. I contacted him in desperation over my girlfriend of a year that broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. Consequently the break up has been devastating so much so that I've considered and still consider suicide as my only option to relieve the pain and agony in me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.

  3. These are so great Howard. I now have a new favorite painting! J.L. David's "The Funeral of Patroclus" is a masterpiece and I don't remember ever seeing it before. Thanks!
