A review of "The Three Musketeers" — 1 year ago
It was too fantasical for me.
It was too fantasical for me.
Well written, excellent costumes and set, good actors. Everything was well done. I don’t normally watch TV, but this series was highly recommended by a few people, so I was encouraged to watch and did so without regret. I’m looking forward to Season 3.
I decided to go beyond orange juice as my breakfast drink. This not only tastes great, but has orange juice, and blueberries, mango, banana, apple, and concord grapes.
This is an old edition, but worth reading. I haven’t been to the Rijksmuseum, so I don’t know how many important works are covered in this book, but I was satisfied with the amount. It’s over 100 pages with a color plate on one page and a description on the next throughout the book. It’s hardcover, but small and lightweight enough to fit in a bag and bring to read on a commute. I thought it was going to be composed of all Dutch artists, but towards the end of the book there were a few artists from other countries.
Van Gogh wrote around 800 letters to his brother Theo. In this documentary we get to know Van Gogh on a personal level through some of these letters and John Hurt’s narration skills are a due complement to them.
Having just read Among the Bohemians by Virginia Nicholson, I got a closer look at one of the Bohemians, Stella Bowen. It’s a book about two female Australian painters close in age, Stella Bowen, born in 1893, and Grace Cossington Smith, born in 1892. They led completely different lives, never having met. Stella Bowen left for London on the eve of WWI, never returning to Australia, and Grace Cossington Smith who lived outside of Sydney all her life, having visited Europe two times in her life.
I was previously unaware of either artist, and this book introduced me to two painters worth looking at. I enjoyed reading about their lives as well. The book has a handful of color plates of each artist’s works as well as some black and white images of theirs and other artists of the era.
It’s composed of three DVDs and covers each museum collection, the Sistine and St. Peter’s. Good narration, information and visuals. Recommended to anyone interested in the Vatican City art collections.
This book was written for young adults, but I think anyone who is interested in reading about Michelangelo should read this. It’s an enjoyable biography containing much of the same information I’ve read about Michelangelo elsewhere, but in less detail. There were also a couple things I didn’t read about or forgot about in other books.
The writer’s experiences on the jobs are all too familiar to anyone who has ever held a bad, and or low-paying job. She raised some interesting points, but I thought it was a little depressing and found myself wanting to finish the book so I could move on to something more positive.
I had discs one and two in my Netflix queue. After watching disc one I decided I won’t waste my time with disc two. I would only recommend this to someone who knows nothing about the history of western art and is looking for a very brief overview. Even then, you can probably find a more enjoyable DVD on the same subject. The narrator wasn’t very enthusiastic and couldn’t pronounce some of the artists names properly. Overall, I thought it was poorly done.
