Just when I thought the day would be a disappointment, totally lacking in Artistic Encounter for your Art Critic at large, I suddenly stumbled over something that drew my Artistical eye to it like the proverbial positively charged magnet to the negatively charged one.
I had found Art, worthy of my criticism.
Not because it was so good, however - quite the contrary!
This disaster in taste, the trainwreck on the railroads of decency, belongs to the school of so called "Religious Art" and is a so called portait featuring the Lord, our Saviour - but despite the insistance of the "artist", the likenes is barely discernable. Perhaps I would not go to far if I said that to see Jesus in this painting verges on the miraculous.
The composition is horrible and the balance is hideous. The colors are completely wrong. And there is no real "spark" to the eye of Our Saviour.
All in all it is a lifeless portait that would find a suitable place, perhaps, on a lesser, more rural museum but should never be considered for display on any place of some renomme, such as the Louvre.
