This is a wonderful piece on the Black Paintings of Goya and in it the author tells us about the which paintings disturbed him the most.
That painting is actually one of my favorites- so after this clip I’ve posted two of the paintings that I’ve found to be the most disturbing.
I’ve always found this painting to be the most disturbing:
In this painting the dog is alone in an empty Sea and it is drowning- worse maybe it will never drown. Maybe it will almost drown, alone and almost drown alone forever.
I’ve been that dog, that’s why I find the painting so disturbing.
I guess I see myself in it.
I’ve always found it amusing that lovers claim that “fate” brought them together.
In my mind fate has a cruel streak and a sick sense of humor- and by the way it doesn’t really care who you are or what your desires or wants are.
This painting expresses that.
I don’t find the above painting disturbing but I’ll include it anyway.
What I hear when I see this painting is are questions- were these people crazed looking
before they made their pilgrimage or did it happen along the way- and once they get
there are these pilgrims the ones that were expected?
For the sake of drama with a touch of darkness- I’ll say
