Dresden Altar - Albrecht Durer. The central panel is 117x96, the side panels are 114x45. The altar marks the beginning of a mature period in the work of Albrecht Durer.

The plot of the central panel is the worship of the Virgin Mary the Baby.
Christ in the parental home is John Everett Millet. 1850 This painting, first exhibited in London, gave rise to general rejection. As a leading member of the Brotherhood of the Pre-Raphaelites, the artist served as an example of the Pre-Raphaelite principles of strict realism and immediate emotional attractiveness, when he portrayed the Holy Family as a family of poor English workers at work in the workshop of the carpenter Joseph.
Bank of the Seine. 73.4x100.5 Monet always remained faithful to the main credo of the impressionists - the artist must reproduce on canvas his visual impressions experienced at a certain time and in a certain place. In the depiction of nature, the master tried to find the joyful harmony of colors. His landscapes are devoid of genre, he seeks to give the image of nature in a pure, aesthetic perception without any associative ties.
It rarely happens that an artist, even during his lifetime, becomes a classic in his own genre and even creates a museum of his own name, supported by the official authorities. This was exactly the case with Joan Miró and Ferrat, a Catalan artist and sculptor. The reason for the creation of the museum was the success of its first major exhibition in 1968 in Barcelona, after which, with the support of friends, the Miro Foundation was created.
Portrait of a Lady - Rogier van der Weyden. 34 x 25.5 The largest master of the Dutch Renaissance, Rogier van der Weyden was an outstanding portrait painter, a vivid confirmation of which is “Portrait of a Lady”, as beautiful as it is mysterious. Weiden portrayed a young woman waist-high in a three-quarter turn against a dark background, thanks to to which nothing distracts from the contemplation of the fair face of the model with eyebrows plucked in the fashion of that time.
The toilet of Venus - Francois Boucher. 108,3x85,1 Francois Boucher (1703-1770) was a typical representative of the light, festive, highly decorative art of Rococo. The art of Antoine Watteau influenced his painting, but Bush was alien to the light sadness that shines in his paintings. We can say that Watteau gave the rococo spirit, and Bush - the flesh.
