15th Anniversary of Eye Prefer Paris

On June 26, 2006 I launched Eye Prefer Paris, and last Friday was the 15th anniversary. Here’s the first post I wrote.   About This blog This blog is about how a native New Yorker dreamed of moving to Paris …… and what he discovered once he got there. Come live this Paris dream vicariously through the eyes(and ears) of Richard Nahem. He writes his blog from his 18th century apartment overlooking tree-lined Place St. Paul in the fashionable Marais district of Paris. I had no idea wha...

Penguins tour an art museum in Kansas City

From the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum on Facebook: Quarantine has caused everyone to go a little stir-crazy, even the residents of the Kansas City Zoo. So several of the penguins decided to go on a field trip to the Nelson-Atkins, which is still closed, to get a little culture. These isn't the only group of zoo penguins to enjoy an extra-special social excursion while the rest of us are quarantined. But they're certainly the first penguins to prefer the work of Caravaggio to Monet. The Kansas City Z...

Still Here

Life goes on, even if it’s not exciting. Basically, we are afraid to go outside. We still make occasional trips to the grocery store but it’s pretty stressful. I’ve been having very vivid dreams, some of which wake me up. I think it might be because I’m taking Claratine for allergies along with my over the counter sleep medication. The last one was where I was driving a car and no matter how hard I tried I was lost. I’m not much of a dream interpreter but I think it must mean I have no control o...

How to Paint Water Lilies Like Monet in 14 Minutes

Some of us are using this period of self-isolation to make sourdough. Others are learning to play an instrument or initiating a daily yoga practice. For those considering taking up painting, David Dunlop's Emmy-Award winning PBS series Landscapes Through Time offers an excellent alternative (or supplement) to the well-established joys of cult figure Bob Ross, the eternal king of television art instruction. Like Ross, Dunlop has a mellow onscreen temperament that pairs beautifully wit...

Billionaire Jeffrey Gundlach Says He Received Panic Offers for Works Over Coronavirus

Billionaire Jeffrey Gundlach claims that he has received “panic offers” for works by artists including Monet and Renoir this week at majorly discounted prices.  “This is a difficult time,” he says. “It makes sense for people who want liquidity” to turn to their art collections.

Atelier des Lumieres: Monet, Renoir…Chagall

Last Thursday was the press day for the newest Atelier des Lumieres spectacle, Monet, Renoir…Chagall.   The two previous shows, Klimt in 2018, and Van Gogh in 2019, were smash hits, selling out on many dates.   Notice the … after Renoir, and before Chagall. The reason is because, a range of important artists who painted in between the time of Monet, Renoir and Chagall are shown during the spectacle including Matisse, Andre Derain, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, and Raoul Dufy.   ...

"If purple walls and a red tinted window surrounded you for a month with no color but purple around you, by the end of that time you would be a mad-man."

"No matter how strong your brain might be it would not stand the strain, and it is doubtful if you would ever recover your reason."Said the Boston Globe in a 1903 article titled "Dangerous Tints: Some Colors Will Drive a Person Mad if the Eyes Are Continually Looking at Them," quoted in "15 Perfectly Safe Things That Were Once Considered Dangerous" (Mental Floss).[Purple] wasn't the only color to avoid. Scarlet could push you into a murderous rage, while blue “excites the imagination and gives a...

Masterworks Art Review: Become an Art Investor!

I’ve been writing a lot about traditional investing over the last couple of months. Today I’m going to let the pendulum swing the other way and write about a non-traditional investment – art.Have you ever wanted to invest in art? I have. Though it’s not because I love art. I like art, but my taste in art is not shared by many. The reason I’d want to invest in art is simply because it indicates that I’ve reached a certain (high) level of financial success. When I think of the average art in...

How Can We Look At Monet While Our Planet Burns?

The Denver Art Museum has cast Monet as a sort of Romantic painter, looking for the truth in unalloyed nature – and perhaps finding it. But instead of demonstrating oneness with pure nature, “with a little critical re-framing, Monet’s most celebrated works can testify to the perniciousness at the heart of the structural conditions underlying today’s climate crisis — in particular, the dated binary between ‘enlightened’ humans and an inert and exploitable ‘true’ nature.” – Hyperallergic

The Vanke City Garden’s architecture has an eco-industrial-chic vibe

Trust me to use the words eco, industrial, and chic together in the sentence, but there’s no denying that these words, as unrelated as they are, well describe the architectural style of the Vanke City Garden main building. Located in Foshan, China, the architecture was handled by Percept Design who believed in channeling European architectural styles but also using a combination of glass, brick, iron, and greenery to create a distinct vibe on the outside. Step into the building and it literally ...

California interlude

I'm out of photos. I haven't taken the camera outside in a while and I haven't taken many indoor photos, either. So here are some water lilies I saw at a winery in the Sierra foothills of California probably about seventeen years ago, before moving to France. Almost like a painting by Monet. I woke up to rain this morning. Again. Everything outside is a muddy mess. It's not cold, so there's no ice or frost. Or snow. But I can't take the dog down the hill on our walks because the path is like...

#TwistedTropes 26. Whistler's angry mother

Image from Wikimedia Commons When James Whistler painted his mother, she didn't look too pleased. In fact she looked proper hacked off, like as if any minute she was going to turn around and snarl obscenities at him and tell him exactly where he could stick his paintbrushes (steady on now - Editor).Maybe she had a migraine coming on when he asked her to pose for him. Perhaps she was expected at her Pilates class and he was making her very late. Or maybe she was simply in a bad mood. Any...

25 Out-of-Print Books That Were Used Bestsellers in 2019

Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick Marcus Sedgwick’s debut novel from 2000 is bizarrely out-of-print. This fantasy story, aimed at young adults, imagines a future where England is covered by water and the city of Norwich is now an island. Zoe has been left behind and struggles to survive amid the chaos. This piece of environmental fiction doesn’t look so fictional today. Celia, A Slave by Melton A Mclaurin In 1850, 14-year-old Celia became the property of Robert Newsom, a Missouri farmer...

Eye Candy for Today: Near Sydenham Hill, Camille Pissarro

Near Sydenham Hill, Camille Pissarro; oil on canvas, roughy 17 x 21 inches (43 x 53 cm). Link is to zoomable version on Google Art Project; downloadable version on Wikimedia Commons; original is in the Kimbell Art Museum. Camille Pissarro is one of my favorites among the original French Impressionist painters. I love the sense of atmospheric distance in this painting of the countryside near London, where — following Monet’s lead — the artist moved his family to escape the violence of the Pru...

Meghan McCain was just made an official Ru Girl and people are pissed

People are not happy with Monét X Change and Nina West appearing on The View this week to celebrate Meghan McCain’s 35th birthday. The queens stopped by to surprise McCain, who is John McCain’s daughter (in case anyone forgot), with a birthday cake, a pair of autographed pink rhinestone cowboy boots, and a RuPaul’s Drag Race statuette. “We thought it would only be appropriate if we made you an official Ru girl and gave you your very own,” Nina said as she presented McCain with the coveted statu...

Monet exhibit coming to Denver

The Denver Art Museum is the sole museum in the US lucky enough to host the new Monet exhibition. “Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature,” will be the largest Monet exhibit in 20 years, featuring around 120 works by the artist, which makes it the most comprehensive collection of his work in over 20 years.

"[T]he expanded MoMA is making obvious efforts to reshape its image without going entirely off-brand — to tell the tale of what might be called Modernism Plus, with globalism and African-American art added...."

"The first gallery, now labeled '19th Century Innovators,' is pretty much a painting hit parade — Cezanne’s 'Still Life with Apples' (1895-98), Rousseau’s 'The Sleeping Gypsy' (1897) and, straight ahead, van Gogh’s 'The Starry Night' (1889).... But to this familiar two-dimensional European world MoMA has introduced an American wild card: half a dozen nugget-like ceramic bowls and jugs by George Ohr (1857-1918), the self-proclaimed 'Mad Potter of Biloxi.'... The gallery [that is] a virtual Picass...

Daniella Monet has found success combining Instagram fame and eco-conscious investing, after starring in Nickelodeon's 'Victorious'

Actress and influencer Daniella Monet, known for her role as Trina Vega on the Nickelodeon show "Victorious," shares her daily life on YouTube and Instagram with her followers.  "I'd say the benefit to YouTube, or any place where you can create your own content, is the control that you have," she told Business Insider. She is part of a trend of traditional actors becoming social-media stars. She has also invested in several eco-conscious companies, which she often features on her social-media ...
