My Favorite Art Ryan Sickles
Name: African beach • Artist: Maria Fortuny • Date: 1867 • Time Period: Realism
I chose this painting because I like to go to beaches. I love the feeling of my feet in the sand and the sun shining on your skin. Walking into the cold ocean and getting pounded by waves is one of the best feelings.
Title: Garden of Montmarte • Artist: Santiago Rusiñol • Date: 1890-1891 • Time Period: Realism
I like this painting because it looks like a picture. I am very impressed with paintings that look real. I also like how it takes place in a city. I like to walk around in cities and wish to live there when I’m older.
Title: Frozen Assets • Artists: Diego Rivera • Date: 1931 • Time Period: Modern
I chose this painting because I like the view it gives on the city. It reminds me of driving into Pittsburgh and seeing the same view. Also, I like how the painting shows underground scenes.
