Manet, Manet, Manet, Manet...















...Manet!

Yeah, another "hey, guess whose birthday it is!" post. I'm running on creative fumes, mes amis. Too much brain power used up writing offline. I don't know how some of you fuckers do it. Thus, another example of cheating in fulfilling my unspoken goal of a post a day. And hey, if I get at least one person to check out some new tunes or anything else, then I consider my work done.

Plus, his birthday gives me an opportunity to post yet another pic of a scantily clad or naked chick. Oh, baby. Hey, fuck you, it's art.

Why is it always the girls who are naked?

And, I wish Manet and Monet should have enjoyed all the money that has been made on their work. I hope they get karmic credit wherever they are :-)

My theory supported by no research but mere observation:
1. the painter was a hetero dude.
2. naked women are just more beautiful and artistic than naked men. :)

As for the money being made off them now, yikes!

It looks like the women just got beat in a game of strip poker.

the naked chick said...

Yeah, I got naked for these two clowns, but I think they have eyes only for each other. Worst orgy ever.

I like your birthday posts. It calls forward thoughts of the featured artists and that's always a great thing! Oh, and I love the "hey fuck you, it's art." :)

Happy birthday to Manet!

No lady of the "evening" by Bouguereau a la Colleen and Marjorie?

Here is an updated version of the painting.

ME, they should have been practicing on the internets!

naked chick, thanks for stopping by! Now put on some clothes, there might be kids reading this.

b, merci!

mauigirl, I can't paint for worth shit, so a toast was in order!

colleen, it's not his birthday! And remember, you two had associated stories with that painting, I have none. :)

dr. zaius, the first, and last, time I could ever be considered a work of art. That rules!

DCup said...

A favorite. I got a minor in art history so I could look at naked people.

I actually like these little cultural reminders, even though they may be one of your lamer pretexts for blogging (your idea, not mine.) They also show you're into more stuff than heavy metal!

Bon dimanche!

Manet was cool. Possibly even cooler than Monet.
