painting of the day: fauns fleeing before an automobile
posted on /en/art
The painter is Beneš Knüpfer.
The concept of the painting could be a hacky political cartoon, almost, so it’s not inherently interesting because of that. It’s elevated by the impressionistic texture, as if a blurred action shot. The automobile left in shadow, an unclear threat. The warm tones make it look older to me than it is.
