I went to the Turner, Monet Twombly exhibition at the Tate Liverpool today. I am sure alot of you are thinking Turner, Monet and Who? Which was what I was also thinking before I visited. Whilst dismissing an artist’s work entirely may cause contention, in this instance I feel his work did not come close to the works presented by arguably two of the greatest impressionist painters to have lived.
Turner is an artist whose work I admire immensely. His grasp of light in his paintings is phenomenal. Throughout all his work detail comes secondary to presenting the overall atmosphere of his chosen scene (my friend dismissed this and said that he must have been short sighted!) Yet looking at his works close up you realise just how many references to classical architecture and legend are contained within them.
Monet is an artist who is far more interested in the detail than Turner, his confident brush strokes give real emotion and texture to his pieces. Six of his water lily works are contained within the exhibition, with the final painting dated 1916 being the most captivating of those presented. I sat in front of it, and had it not been for my hungry, grumbly tummy, could have stared all day.

It’s more just photographing celebrities,she document her personal life from the birth of her 3 children to the death of her father and partner

It show all of her life in general and the seasons of her life in her work and private life
It’s an honour to see one of my favourite photographers in exhibition and in the flesh,i am saddened that I did not photograph her work because it means a big deal to photograph one of her works.And the pricing is very expensive for those who want to see her work beyond the magazine cover
