Yet Another Post On Odd Art Until I Do A Real Post...



This painting "Man of Leisure, King George" by artist Kayti Didriksen depicts President Bush after the classic style of Manet's "Olympia", which portrays a beautiful French courtesan. The artist has painted the president being presented with his oil-themed crown by Vice President Dick Cheney, easily recognized by his stiff and uncomfortable posture. Truly a modern classic with its heroic sensibility and powerful political imagery, this piece also seems to pay homage to Napolean's favorite artist, Jacques-Louis David. No other artist has managed to so completely capture the grandeur and magnificence of this type of government.

The vivid composition, powerful symbolism and subtle palette indicate a truly great piece of art, which is sure to become one of the twenty-first century masterpieces. Like Munch's The Scream and Van Gogh's Irises, this piece is destined to be copied onto posters, mugs, T shirts, mousepads, notebooks and napkins for years to come. Truly, we live in the best of all possible worlds to have such artwork in it.
