But before diving in, we look at Goya’s early career which coincided with the rise of French imported Enlightenment ideals and the rejection of said ideals in the Majo/a street style of the lower classes.

Topics include trolling gods, straw mannequins, art worms, French simps, and the uncanny parallels between the lil homies / lil palermos and Goya’s Majomies.

2nd Slice Teaser: The Bel Ami International Art Competition AKA The Great Surrealist Paint Off

Fri, 30 Dec 2022

What do you call it when a second serving of Art History is larger than your first serving???

We dig into the 1940’s - where Surrealism is having its day in Hollywood… ultimately leading to a painting competition between Ivan Albright, Eugene Berman, Leonora Carrington, Salvador Dali, Paul Delvaux, Max Ernst, Leonor Fini (sort of), Osvaldo Louis Guglielmi, Horace Pippin, Abraham Rattner, Stanley Spencer, and Dorothea Tanning…to be featured in full on technicolor in the film The Private Affairs of Bel Ami. 


And there are rules… they must create THEIR version of The Temptation of Saint Anthony…who had already been depicted in various states of getting his ass kicked by monster demons by non other than Stefano di Giovanni, Master of the Osservanza, Martin Schongauer, Michelangelo, and Hieronymus Bosch… no big deal. 


It’s a big ol’ episode to send 2022 packing…not to mention our first fully video episode… only available on our patreon:

Join us as we discuss an abbreviated history of blue - from its fleeting and rare presence in nature, to humanity’s attempts to harness and assign meaning to it. Key moments include Egyptian blue, Ultramarine and YINmn blue.

Through a scientific breakthrough in the early 19th century, cobalt blue would become the steadfast true blue pigment missing on the painter’s palette, leading artists like Eugene Delacroix, Edouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh and Richard Diebenkorn to use cobalt in their varied and expressive visions.

And lastly, we also dig into our associations with COBALT BLUE - which ranged from ocean hues, expansive skies, otherworldliness, happiness or even fresh crispness - all through data compiled by the Art Slice Pantrémon from clinical participants.
