A masterpiece!

Yesterday evening I went to take pictures of several buildings in our area. Then I went home looking around for other interesting stuff.

All of a sudden I noticed that ahead of me walks a girl with a dog on a leash.

Immediately a wonderful thought hit me:

“Make a photo of the girl with the dog and place it on a post together with the famous painting “Symphony in Black” by Erte! Call the post “Old and new”! It will be a masterpiece!”.

I took my Canon PowerShot camera from my pocket and made a first shot. It was too dark.

The girl with the dog started to go faster and the distance between us increased.

I made a second shot but my hands were trembling.

Then I took a deep breath, zoomed and made a very good third shot.

Unfortunately, the dog used the time of my deep breath to relieve himself.

My photo was a real masterpiece!

 

Erte.

I am not sure how many people today know about the biography and the art of Erte. If you don’t know about him please read it HERE.

For me Erte is most known by his bronze sculptures. I loved elegance of his bronze women from the moment I saw them for the first time.

You can see these sculptures below.

Here is the famous “Symphony in Black” by Erte:
