Masquerade – A celebration of Masks

Posted in ART, ART HISTORY, ART PORTFOLIO MY PERSONAL ART, ART VIDEOS with tags , , , , , on June 3, 2011 by echostains

It’s been a while since I posted.  I have been busy  compiling another video – a  a celebration of masks from history, cultures and of course art.  The most prolific artist who featured a lot of  of masks in his work was probably James Ensor ( 1860 –  1949) and many of his mask paintings are featured in this video.  Picasso, Matisse and Watteau also appear in the video, along with masks from different cultures.  There’s even a few quirky ones (knitted) which I’ve added and a few TV characters who are famous for wearing masks.  Hope you enjoy the video (and recognise some of the paintings)
