TODAY’S INSPIRATION: If you have not seen this movie yet I beg of you to see it! Personal Reviews for Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen go through the roof! Studying ART HISTORY for years and seeing myself as somewhat of an avant garde myself, I relished in the surrealistic illuminative and illustrated tale of a man that finds a time warp back into the 1920’s in the heart of PARIS! A striving writer himself, he meets la cremé de la crop of the revolutionary artists and writers that emerged during the bohemian freedom after the war.
Masters like Gertrude Stien (wealthy American Art Collector), Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Picasso (known for his ravenous libido and geometric paintings), Matisse, TS Eliot, Salvador Dali (Love the melting clocks), Degas, Gauguin, and Toulouse-Lautrec (Moulin Rouge painting) make a sound statement in the movie as they pushed the limits of impressionism and gave birth to modernism. (I just compared art to giving birth! Thats a first!)
It’s crazy that they were the celebrities back then! They were the ones making headline news and creating gossip among people every move they made. It would be a wonderful experience to be able to go back in time and see it for myself. Although it does make me think… To each other they were just normal people striving to create something different, just like you and me. They had no idea what an effect it would create on the World led alone the America Modern Culture! It just shows that we could be the next master, the next Pablo Picasso, the next Hemingway and make HISTORY!
