The realist painting of the late nineteenth century has to be the apotheosis of that style, despite the fact that it is rarely studied in art history overview courses. It’s a shame that it was overshadowed in general consciousness by a slew of Modernist ideas.ReplyMfer appears to be in perfect condition to be falling out of the sky.ReplyThe wings appear to be in excellent condition.ReplyFly like an eagle on your journey…ReplyWow, this is a fantastic painting.ReplyRemember, flying too near to the sun is not recommended.ReplyI misread it as 1989…what did they have in 1898 to be able to create such works of art?ReplyWhen the bars in my country reopen, I’ll be me after a good night of drinking.ReplyI’ve never seen a work of art like this before.Replychristian I initially mistook this for a casual redditor displaying their work and wondered, “What the hell are you doing on here?”I’d prefer the wings to be a little more ruined, but this is an incredible beauty.ReplyWhy haven’t the wings melted?ReplyDeath is portrayed as a very evil figure in the painting. However, we will all pass away at some point in the future. For example, I don’t see why I should live another 35 years after I’ve completed my family’s responsibilities.ReplyI appreciate how he’s darker in color; it’s a nice touch.ReplyWhy did the artist show Icarus with his wings, which caused his death when they disintegrated?ReplyWouldn’t it be fantastic to work somewhere that treats art as art and doesn’t require an NSFW label?ReplyWhat's Your Reaction?
