KLIMT / SCHILE DRAWINGS FROM ALBERTINA MUSEUM, VIENNA-PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION

Art Gallery-Piccadilly / London

Hello everyone!

A few months ago I visited London and there was Klimt / Schiele exhibition by the Royal Academy, so pleased I finally got to see the exhibition. Schiele and Klimt were abstracted with the fragility of life. Also, Schile painted on cheap packing paper and it is part of a “memento mori” series showing different stages of life. On the other hand, the exhibit was a bit small and lacking contexts. However, It was so worth a visit because we focused on the drawings of two contemporaneous artists and it was really informative. In addition, I want to share some biography and paintings photos about Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) and Egon Schiele (1890-1918).

Hope you enjoy it!

COLOURFUL AND THRILLING BUTTERFLIES-

image

In August I came to London for a visit and since I have spent some quality time, the base of my exploration was of course a Cooking class in London but I went to a Butterfly exhibition too, that took me back my childhood. Also I have learned more about the butterfly’s life and as you walk through the butterfly house, you can witness the life cycle of the butterfly from egg to crawling Caterpillar and then into the amazing butterfly.

You can sea there that Butterflies have a very characteristic flying style and Butterflies go through a complete metamorphosis. This means that there are four parts in a Butterfly’s life.

The first part is the egg; a Butterfly starts its life as an egg.

The second part is the Caterpillar, It looks like bird droppings on a leaf but it is a Caterpillar in disguise.

The third part is the chrysalis ( sometimes called pupa)

The fourth is the adult; this adult will continue the Cycle and Butterflies are able to change from one stage to another rapidly.

Butterfly wings are ┬ácovered with thousands of tiny, overlapping Scales, which are tiny sensory hairs and they are pigmented with a melanins which give them yellows, browns, but many of the blues, reds,blacks, greens, and iridescent colours are created by the micro-structures of the hairs not only but also┬áThe butterfly’s body is covered by tiny sensory hairs.

In addition, butterflies can fly when their body temperature is above 27C.degrees-(81┬░F) and adult butterflies feed only a liquids nectar from flowers , they obtain sugar for energy and the other minerals for reproduction.

 

I took some photos for you and I hope, you enjoy as well as I enjoyed!
