CHANDIGARGH: Lovers of visual arts can take a journey through major works from various periods in the history of painting this Sunday. Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi,Chopard Replica Watches in collaboration and Alliance Francaise Le Corbusier de Chandigarh, will host a screening of the film \'Les Grands Modernes\' on May 4 at auditorium of Government Museum and Art Gallery, MontBlanc Replica Watches Sector 10.
The Palette Collection brings together a series of films by Alain Jaubert exploring a selection of major works from various periods in the history of painting. Thanks to the latest techniques in video animation, the secrets of the paintings are revealed and discovering art becomes an enjoyable adventure.
\'Les Grands Modernes\' features three movies of 30 minutes each on Picasso and French artists Bonnard and Matisse. Omega Replica Students and lovers of arts can attend the event.
Picasso\'s featured work is Les Couleurs de la passion: \'Crucifixion\'. The painting is a surprising element in Picasso\'s work since the painter had little interest in religious themes. The work, in an enigmatic composition, contains many allusions and also refers to a personal crisis he was undergoing during the period.
"Studio with Mimosa" by Pierre Bonnard is one of Bonnard\'s last great paintings that he finished before he died in 1947. The work has to be seen in the context of all those pictures he painted between 1927 and 1947 in his little house in Le Cannet — the continuous celebration of colour and light, the recurring opposition between indoors and outdoors, the moments of pure, silent meditation.
Matisse\'s A vif dans la couleur: "La Tristesse du roi" was painted in Nice, where the artist lived as of 1949. This, too, is one of the artist\'s last masterpieces. The painter, immobilized by illness, cut out forms of paper which had previously been covered with gouache, and then guided an assistant, who pinned them to the wall until the artist found a satisfactory disposition. In the documentary, the forms, the colours, context, and genesis of the work are thoroughly analyzed.
