A couple of favourite art works

Here is a post about a couple of my favourite art works (including a couple of paintings and a monument). I studied environmental studies at University, although I also studied art history at high school and it is one of my favourite subjects. I enjoy learning about different artists and the culture from where artists are from and how they are inspired to create paintings and sculptures. The paintings I chose include the Water Lilies series by Claude Monet, a French Impressionist painter, and the Kiss by Gustav Klimt, an Austrian painter from Vienna, of la belle époque. The monument I chose is called the Winged Victory of Samothrace from the Louvre in Paris and the monument is noted to be from about 190 to 180 BC and to be made of Parian marble🕊🌸

Earth to earth book

I bought a copy of a book called Earth to earth from a bookshop a couple of years ago and the book has a beautiful cover with a photograph of a sculpture, which is noted to be made from pumice stones and to be positioned in a calm pond. The reflection of the sculpture helps to create a circle shape, and the book has a lot of photographs of circle shape sculptures made from natural materials and photographed in nature.
