Who knew that Vincent van Gogh was a mixed media artist? Turns out that he incorporated some unusual components in his work. It is know that he liked very much to paint en plein aire, so it’s actually not that much of a surprise that he incorporated wildlife into his paintings, along with dust and sand.
I thought that this article was very interesting. About 3500 years ago, a Minoan warrior was buried along with some stone carved artwork. Now that it’s been unearthed, the details in the artwork suggest a level of artistic knowledge beyond its time.
It is certainly a detailed piece of realistic carving!
