An intriguing insight of how the moon has inspired two artists.
Contemporary artist Petar Tale and old master Elsheimer have very contrasting but equally compelling visions which make for revealing viewing.
In Flight into Egypt, Elsheimer shows how well it was done in the past while Tale’s paintings offer hauntingly original insights laden with allusion. Written and narrated by Janet Wilson. Directed by Magnus Horthe. More on http://www.talemuseum.com
The recent Hockney on Turner Watercolours, sponsored by B.P. at the Clore Gallery, Tate Britain earlier this year provoked strong interest – an excellent time to recall the watercolor landscapes of Petar Tale, the Montenegrin born Norwegian artist. The shared subject matter here makes for revealing contrast.
J.M.W. Turner’s work anticipates later 20C developments in art. The work of Petar Tale, often measuring 1 x 1.5 metres, demonstrates that the golden age of watercolor is alive and more to the point kicking. Visit http://www.talemuseum.com
