Art Inspiration N0. 20






These days when people find out you work with art, the main question they are going to ask is: what are the most expensive paintings? There's no need to try to explain that it is very wrong to judge an art piece by its price, we live in a capitalist world where most people want to put a price tag on everything. I can't remember how many times was I asked to determine a price for Parthenon or Mona Lisa, or to list the most expensive paintings ever sold.
.
High price doesn't necessarily mark a good art piece, it only means there are people who will pay a lot for the work of that particular artist. Still, some artists are so unique and important for the history of art that their work deserves to be sold at astronomical prices. Usually those are the artists who are not alive and have a certain cult surrounding their work and life.

Contemporary artists who can sell their art for couple of million dollars are rare and Gerhard Richter is one of them. His painting Abstraktes Bild holds a record as the most expensive painting by a living artist. It was sold by Sotheby's in 2015. for a price 10 million pounds higher than the estimated price. He became known as a part of New European Painting movement that explored the traumatic effects of World War II that remained noticeable even long after the war was over. The movement emerged in the 80s. Richter is famous for his abstract and photorealistic painting.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and that you missed this kind of posts, you can expect more art inspirations in the future.



U današnje vreme kada ljudi čuju da se bavite umetnošću, prvo pitanje koje postavljaju je: koje su najskuplje slike? Nema potrebe da pokušavate da objasnite kako je pogrešno da se o umetnosti sudi na osnovu cene, živimo u kapitalističkom društvu gde većina ljudi želi da nalepi cenu na sve. Ne mogu da se setim koliko su me puta pitali da odredim koliko bi koštao Partenon ili Mona Liza, ili da nabrojim najskuplje slike ikada prodate.

Ako je neko umetničko delo skupo, ne znači da je dobro, nego da postoje ljudi koji su spremni da plate visoku cenu za određenog umetnika. I pored toga, neki umetnici su toliko jedinstveni i značajni za istoriju umetnosti, da njihova dela zaslužuju da budu prodata po astronomskim cenama. Oni obično više nisu živi i postoji određeni kult koji okružuje njihov život i rad.

Savremeni umetnici koij mogu da prodaju svoju umetnost za nekoliko miliona dolara su retki i Gerhard Rihter je jedan od njih. Njegova slika Abstraktes Bild drži rekord kao najskuplja slika živog umetnika. Aukcijska kuća Sotheby's je 2015. prodala za cenu 10 miliona funti višu od procenjene. Postao je poznat kao deo pokreta Novo Evropsko Slikarstvo koji je istraživao traumatične posledice Drugog svetskog rata koje su ostale primetne dugo nakon što je rat završen. Sam pravac nastaje osamdesetih godina 20. veka. Rihter je poznat po svom apstraktnom i fotorealističnom slikarstvu.

Nadam se da ste uživali u vikendu, i da vam je nedostajala ova vrsta postova, možete da očekujete više postova sa umetničkom inspiracijom u budućnosti.
