What a privilege it is to visit MoMA in NYC and stand face-to-face with great works of art that I, and countless others, have only admired from afar, though they have helped shape our consciousness as modern human beings.

Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse and Picasso are all masters that are part of our shared cultural heritage as citizens of this planet, all teachers in our ongoing education and edification in how we might better perceive the world—timeless examples of how art can sustain us, as well as inspire and refine our senses.

For Steemians who share my belief in the transformative power of art, I invite you to watch this excellent documentary, Why Beauty Matters narrated by esteemed philosopher and art critic, Roger Scruton.

Have a beauty-filled day _/|\_

Thanks bro - you too :D

I generally dislike cities. I really do. Too many people and not enough spaces.

But I'll take NYC any day that I can go to the Met. The last time I was in the city I was there 6 days. I went to the MOMA 5 of those :)

What a place. Thanks for reminding me!

Wow, 5 out of 6 days, that’s commitment to culture!

I know what you mean about big cities—I, too, find them overwhelming after a few days.

I like to plug into NYC, like an electric socket, get a charge & get the hell outta there 🤩

Beautiful pieces of art. And valuable post enriched by them. Thank you for sharing. Upvoted.

Welcome. Check my yesterday's reply to your question about devotionals. Though i am not entirely sure, it is knowledge about my country i want proudly share :D .

Just checked, thanks. We all have work to do, and our work is connected.

By the way, since you asked (repeatedly) about ecopies if my books, wanted to let you know they are still available here

Cheers ✌🏼

Thank you for the link. I will surely get my ecopy, sooner or later.

This is what we call the peak of imagination. Usage of colors to draw on the canvas really demands a very creative mind and I am convinced minds behind these arts are God-gifted talent.

Thank you so much for sharing this worthy art work Bro Yahia. You look awesome with hat Bro :)

There’s more to great art than use of colors (though that’s part of it). There’s composition, style and vision — how the art alters our own.

If you’re interested in learning more about art appreciation, I recommend you watch video I linked to in this post 🙏🏼

PS - Yes, I agree that great artistic talent is God-gifted, which is why we approach it with reverence.

I do agree that there’s composition, style and vision. I would love to watch the video thanks a lot Bro :)
