Flowers of the Universal Flowering (Pavel Filonov, 1916)

This is a rather typical Filonov avant-garde piece. It is almost non-representational, but, not quite. It makes you think.

Preparing for the Wedding (Konstantin Makovsky, 1884)

This is a preparation of a bride for the wedding in a traditional, albeit prosperous, peasant or merchant household. Since people love these wedding pictures, I am going to be digging them up over the next week.

Ocean (Ivan Aivazovsky, 1896)

Another sea-sickness inducer from Aivazovsky. How’s this for an encore, Lisa?
