Picture Study Week 3

I love this picture by Pieter de Hooch called "The Pantry". The artist lived from 1629-1683, so I find it this colorful floor fascinating! Would you think that they would have a floor like this back then? We enjoyed studying this picture. So much to see!

I think I studied this artwork in one of my upper division courses, maybe a year ago. It is a very neat piece! :)

That is a cool one. That is interesting about the floor - I wonder what it was made of? How do you pick your picture?

Cori and Amber said...

I agree, Ashley! I really like it too!

Amber, I have a pack of post card sized art pieces and I just pick one of them. Usually I keep it up on the fridge for a week or so. I think Mom gave me them.
