45 Just as Hollywood loves movies about making movies and Broadway loves putting on shows, artists seem drawn to paint the painting process.

As art, I like this a lot. I love the composition. All the zones of light blocked off in squares.

For a studio it seems quite sterile. There is no dropcloth, no paint on the floor. He has it set up so that he gets light on the easel. We have no idea how the model would be lit.

The open door is jarring. It makes the room feel like just a part of the house instead of the intimacy of an attic atelier.

67 On further inspection, we see that the art has at least two more arts in it. There is an art on the easel we cannot see, and the other art is hung high up on the wall. The two arts can see each other. The art on the wall was hung by a tall person.

Posted by: Mother at May 28, 2020 09:54 AM (1Bpwm)

121 Aside from the slight gleam of the bowl in the far background and the picture frame, this painting is rather lifeless. Very unusual for a Scandi artist.

From a personal point of view, that doorway leading to the room with the bowl is too damn narrow. I don't like houses with the accomodation of an airline seat.

Posted by: JTB at May 28, 2020 09:54 AM (7EjX1)

122 Why is the framed painting so high? Because when the artist gets up from his easel and turns around to bash his head on the wall for inspiration, it'd be counterproductive for him to thump it on the canvas.

Ah hah! I have a Grand Unifying Theory.

There are two canvases on the easel. They are not being painted, they're being evaluated. Rich guy has put his chair and easel in the light so that he can look at the two paintings he's considering and make up his mind.

295 > I get the feeling that with Trump promising the veto it, it's not something that Nancy really wants to spend political capital on.

Yes. If Trump vetoes it, it's gone, plus that would make major headlines.

They no longer have enough votes to override the veto, and an attempt to do so would keep it in the headlines for weeks. Even the corrupt media would have to cover that.

=====

Yeah. The politics of this thing is murky, but Trump's veto threat seems to have clarified a bunch of stuff about it.

FISA isn't really popular (or well known). Trump has the bully pulpit and he's finally decided to use it against reauthorization. I think that changes the calculus.

He can whip up a lot of opposition to FISA while they can't really whip up much support.

Ben Rhodes doesn't have any power any more. Anyone connected with the Obama administration is quickly becoming toxic.

Ben can posture and bluster all he wants, but he's a non entity these days.

Meanwhile, Zuckerberg might actually be smart enough to realize he doesn't want government looking to closely, and, therefore, may try to appear to be the Switzerland of Tech.

- Direct the FTC to review TOS and censorship schemes in the context of "deceptive practices" under existing law.

There's a theory that wearing one, or a few, items of clothing (hat, gloves, nylons...) actually makes you look more naked than full nudity does.

Full nudity means that you happen to be nude.

Partially clothed means you're either in the process of gettin' nekkid or in the process of gettin' dressed after gettin' nekkid.

I suppose this is to give them an idea of who they'll be working with and supervising, and what we do. Certainly we won't be making any kind of decision on this -- it's Way Above Our Pay Grade.

A young girl, no one will believe her

388 Naked, yet wearing a beret, so not naked. Interesting.

There's a theory that wearing one, or a few, items of clothing (hat, gloves, nylons...) actually makes you look more naked than full nudity does.

Full nudity means that you happen to be nude.

Partially clothed means you're either in the process of gettin' nekkid or in the process of gettin' dressed after gettin' nekkid.

390 The one that I find most fascinating is that they'll keep an account active, but no one else can see the posts. The person can comment all he wants, and his comments will show up on his feed and appear to be part of the conversation that he's engaged in, but no one else can see any of it. Just him.

And it looks perfectly normal on his end other than no one responding to him.

Ditko was a damn fine artist. He did some really trippy stuff, especially in Doctor Strange comics.

One of the few Ayn Rand fans that ever worked in the funny pages. Got him blackballed eventually. Because comic books are run by progressive fuckwits. See also why Chuck Dixon rarely works for the big two.

418 IMHO:

The painting is high to attract the gaze of the model. The scene is that of a portrait being painted in the model's house, not the artist's house - hence the poor lighting. It's from the model's point of view. The painting is high up for the model to focus on, an old trick still used in photography. I dunno, it supposedly makes people look better. Removes their dewlaps and jowls maybe. Removes shadows from the eyes.

The room is sparse because the model/home owner cleared it. The bowl is detailed to show you where the model is looking at because the artist left that way, leaving the door open because he is coming right back.

What do you not see? A mixing palette. A case with paint pots or tubes. A stool to stand the palette on. A jar with thinner and brushes, ready for use (or with dirty brushes in them).

A flaw in my guesses is that there is no drop cloth under the easel. Drop clothes are put down first, especially in a stranger's home who is paying you to paint their portrait. Those payments are how you pay for a couple of months room and board as an artist. The weird sepia tone/gloom might just be poor quality linseed oils that have darkened over the century.

So Ace, what where you drinking again?

Posted by: Matthew H Iskra at May 28, 2020 11:26 AM (day4e)

419 This is interesting because it is a study in light and texture. Darkness to light, coarse to shiny smooth. Everything in this is someplace on the light scale and the texture scale. That is all that is in the painting.

Posted by: DXM at May 28, 2020 11:59 AM (w3c6D)

423 Why is the canvas shadow falling in the opposite direction of the way the light is coming in? All the other shadows are going in the correct direction.

Posted by: Jonahex at May 28, 2020 12:02 PM (UvQXJ)

424
The painter did multiple versions of this setting each of which suggests the presence of the artist somewhere in the space.
The light from the unseen back window illuminates the back room.
The painting on the wall is called "The Battle of Copenhagen" and was painted in 1801 by C.A. Lorentzen. It is mounted high to prevent sunlight from damaging it.

One of the versions of this painting was auctioned by Christies in October 2018.
