Dedication

After World War II, Picasso was asked to donate some works to French museums. As a compensation, he was granted a confrontation of some of his paintings to works of his colleagues in the Louvre, on a day closed to the public. Only very few persons were present. In a kind of ceremony, his works were hung side by side with other works of his choice. Rarely did someone speak. Afterwards, Picasso is to have said: "C'est la même chose!", i.e. it's the same thing: He and the other masters were doing the same, despite of different styles and attitudes.

Hence this Journal is dedicated in humble reverence to
Pablo Picasso.

Let's do our "Louvre Test" right here, being a painter or not, to see what this kind of confrontation can do! Experience each single work different depending on the context! Meet two outstanding works of art talking to each other every week! Join in a journey through all ages and cultures! We will look at medieval art, stone age art, modern art, primitive art, you name it! Without rigid structure, we will browse through the treasures of man's heritage. Art is one of the very human traits, although it is hard to say what art actually is. Find out what pleases you and add some delight to your day. Submit your pairs to delight us! Shed new light on known works through confronting them with other works! Send in your comments on shown pairings! Choose your sample below.
