Finally, he managed to find a model for the image of Christ among the young singers. Pick up the sitter to Judas Leonardo failed for three years. But one day he came across the street to the drunkard, who was lying in the gutter. He was a young man, grown old binge drinking. Leonardo invited him to the inn, where he immediately began to write with his Judas. When the drunkard came to himself, he said to the artist that had once posed to him. It was a few years ago, when he sang in the church choir, Leonardo wrote with his Christ.
An innocent story, "Gothic"
Grant Wood, "American Gothic" 1930.
Job Grant Wood is one of the most bizarre and depressing in the history of American painting. Painting with dark father and daughter is full of details that indicate the severity of Puritanism and misoneism images of people. In fact, the artist does not depict any horror conceived: during a trip to Iowa, and he noticed a small house in the Gothic style, and decided to represent those people who, in his opinion, would be perfect as a slum. In the form of the characters, which so offended the residents of Iowa, immortalized sister Grant and his dentist.
"Night Watch" and "Day"?
Rembrandt "Night Watch", 1642.
One of the most famous paintings by Rembrandt "Speech Rifle Company of Captain Frans Banning Kok and Willem van Lieutenant Roytenbyurga" stayed there for about two hundred years in different rooms and was discovered by art only in the XIX century. Since it seemed that the figures appear on a dark background, it was called "The Night Watch", and under this name it and went into the treasury of world art. It was only during the restoration, conducted in 1947, found that in the hall picture managed to be covered with a layer of soot, distort its flavor. After clearing the original painting finally it became clear that the scene represented by Rembrandt, is really going on during the day.

On the canvas 10 purple line shows the blue and two sails on a white background. Two sails artist painted not just as a second sail - a reflection on the first surface of the water.

Cheating in a self-portrait
Vincent Van Gogh, "Self-Portrait with a Pipe" 1889.
The fact that Van Gogh himself allegedly cut off his ear, is legendary. Who it is considered the most accurate version of what Van Gogh's ear hurt a small scuffle with another artist - Paul Gauguin. Self is interesting because it reflects the reality in a distorted form: the artist is depicted with a bandaged right ear because he is at work to use a mirror. Actually affected the left ear.
Two "Luncheon on the Grass"
Edouard Manet's "Luncheon on the Grass", 1863.
Claude Monet, "Breakfast on the Grass" 1865.
Artists Edouard Manet and Claude Monet are sometimes confused - because they both were French, lived at the same time and worked in the impressionist style. Even the name of one of the most famous paintings of Manet's "Luncheon on the Grass" Monet borrowed and wrote his "Luncheon on the Grass".
Ivan Shishkin "Morning in a Pine Forest" 1889.
Famous painting belongs not only to the pen Shishkin. Many artists, make friends with each other, often resorted to "help each other", and Ivan Ivanovich, a lifetime to paint landscapes, feared that touching the bears will not produce it as needed. Therefore Shishkin turned to a familiar animal artist Konstantin Savitsky.
Sawicki drew perhaps the best bears in the history of Russian art, and Tretyakov commanded to wash off his name from the canvas, as all in the picture "from the design and ending with the execution of all manner of talking about painting, about the creative method peculiar to Shishkin."
