Quattro stagioni, 1995; Cy Twombly. "It's more like I'm having an experience than making a picture." #fourseasons#cytwombly#nicolaspoussin#paintings

Here's a detail from Nicolas Poussin's 'The Adoration of the Golden Calf', which is on display in Room 19. The painting and its companion piece, 'The Crossing of the Red Sea' were made for Amadeo dal Pozzo, a cousin of Poussin's major Roman patron, Cassiano dal Pozzo.

#Poussin took the design for the group of dancers from his 'Bacchanalian Revel before a Term of Pan' (which we posted just a couple of days ago, head to our profile page to see it) another picture of pagan celebration, but turned the group through 180 degrees. The even distribution of blue, red and orange throughout the painting helps to unify the composition as a whole, but colour is also used to isolate individual figures.

On the left is a small maquette I made in 1998 for the painting on the right. I was following the example of one of my heros, Nicolas Poussin, who created small stage sets with figurines to help visualize and compose his paintings. I found it very useful to make things with my hands and explore possibilities in the physically world first before entering the virtual world of paint on canvas. #jonswihart #nicolaspoussin #poussin #figurepainting #maquette #paintingstudy

Nicolas Poussin was allegedly not feeling very well when he did this self portrait. Or maybe he had just seen the nominees for this year’s Turner Prize.
The original - in red chalk on paper - is in the British Museum.

Ironically one's death is sometimes louder than his/ her existence. Confronting losses, people start to care and make better reconnections with each other. Then, overfamiliarity kills appreciation for little things and the circle repeats. Another paradox of life.

Two 17th century #Poussin masterpieces @museelouvre #Autumn and #Spring were damaged after torrential rain hit Paris and last weekend. While conservators assess the damage, make the most of The Bruce High Quality Foundation's own version of 'Autumn (The Spies with the Grapes of the Promised Land)' 2025-17, detail. The Bruces have overlaid the image with chalkboard markings and scrawls as though from a BHQFU (their own tuition-free school) tutorial session.

As fortes tempestades que atingiram Paris entre 08 e 09/07 inundaram várias estações do metrô e infiltraram o Louvre, causando danos em algumas obras de arte. O museu francês confirmou que a água havia invadido várias salas de exibição, como o mezanino da ala Denon, afetando as salas "Artes do Islã" e "Do Mediterrâneo Oriente para o Templo Romano". Apesar das imediatas medidas de emergência pela equipe, foram causados danos no verniz de duas das pinturas da série "Four Seasons" (foto) de Nicolas Poussin, que foram imediatamente removidas, e um trabalho em grande formato de Jean-François de Troy, “The Triumph De Mordecai” (1736). O trabalho ainda está em andamento para garantir que os espaços afetados reabrem o mais rápido possível e os restauradores estão avaliando a extensão do dano causado.

Art is something that makes you breath with a different kind of happiness...🎨🏛🖼 The painting is from Nicolas Poussin who is famous with his classical french baroque style and this is one is called "The abduction of the Sabine Women"... The Romans invited the neighboring Sabines with the intention of forcibly keep their young women as their wives.. I was super lucky the hall to be empty and enjoy this peaceful moment between me and the painting🖼#themetropolitanmuseumofart#art#baroque#nicolaspoussin#newyork#thatpeacefulmoment
