SELF PORTRAIT

Vincent Willem van Gogh

It looks like me.

The Wedding Dance

Pieter Bruegel the Elder

It exemplifies the joy of the human condition, despite problems and turmoil. It shows us that there is joy always available to us.

DETROIT INDUSTRY

Diego M. Rivera

It represents so much. It was daring because part of its message was communistic, yet, Edsel Ford, from a family that was the essence of capitalism, paid for it and stood by Rivera.

MARTHA AND MARY MAGDALENE

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

It shows two saints as REAL women who are shifting their view from the beauty that is outside to the light that is inside.

DETROIT INDUSTRY

Diego M. Rivera

I love the Diego Rivera auto plant picture because it shows everyday people and the beauty of honest work.

THE NUT GATHERERS

William Adolphe Bouguereau

I think it shows such an intimacy between girlfriends,sharing stories and secrets.

The Wedding Dance

Pieter Bruegel the Elder

It shows love, family, friends, happiness! Keep coming back here to visit the original, just to make sure it is still as beautiful as I remember.

PORTRAIT OF POSTMAN ROULIN

Vincent Willem van Gogh

He has a hat.

Annunciatory Angel

Fra Angelico

I love Fra Angelico's Annunciatory Angel because the golden colors give the angel a divine aura. The position of the hands make him look like he is about to make an important announcement. Beautiful!

MARTHA AND MARY MAGDALENE

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

The action in Caravaggio's works is incredible---not only do the characters represent a story, but you can easily imagine them walking off the canvas.

Belshazzar's Feast

Washington Allston

My mother was a student at Wayne State and I was a bored 7-year-old. A guard took pity and showed me how the lines in the floor and his hand would follow you as you crossed the room. Magic!

Donkey

Renee Sintenis

I have seen the donkey for 50 years. It reminds me that the DIA has provided me and countless others a lifetime of art experiences--and it is good kick to pet it, too! I love the DIA!

MELANCHOLY WOMAN

Pablo Picasso

It reminds me of all the sorrow so many people I know have been through and how they didn't give up and fought through it.

COTOPAXI

Frederic Edwin Church

It is so breathtaking. When I first saw it, I truly thought that it was a photograph. Also, I am an artist and I would love to be make to make something as amazing as this one day.

ELEONORA OF TOLEDO AND HER SON

Agnolo Bronzino

The black, soft, velvety fabric of her dress with golden tassels and costly pearls make her appear regal in the portrait. My favorite show stopper.

DETROIT INDUSTRY

Diego M. Rivera

One of the most brilliant and moving pieces on planet earth. The subject is political, yet the mural transcends politics to a meditation on the human condition.

MELANCHOLY WOMAN

Pablo Picasso

I feel like I am sitting right next to the sad woman. I can feel the sadness in the artwork.

COTOPAXI

Frederic Edwin Church

It is an awe-inspiring study of nature at its most violent and overwhelming. The billowing clouds of volcanic gases, torrents of lava and blood-red landscape symbolize the horrors of the Civil War.

Chapel

Anonymous

I love 16th/17th century churches since much effort was put in their architecture. This chapel seems dark and humble, but the little golden ornament and colorful stain glass windows draw attention.

THE WINDOW

Henri Matisse

I love it because of the use of the color GREEN and the simplicity of it! Its appearance is on a small scale yet the impact that it leaves with me is massive!

SELF PORTRAIT

Vincent Willem van Gogh

I feel like I'm looking into Van Gogh's soul when I see his self-portrait. I especially love the broad strokes in his yellow hat and the red in his beard. This painting brings me joy.

GLADIOLI

Claude Monet

It takes me back to a younger time when I visited many of the famous museums in Europe and saw these paintings in person. Seeing them "up close and personal" is exhilarating!!

Ballet Dancer Adjusting her Costume

Edgar Degas

It reminds me of when I saw the Degas' complete collection of ballerinas here years ago, and in Paris just last year. These ballerinas are beautiful, and Degas's drawings bring life to their art form.

Commode

Jean-Henri Riesener

Its glory is astounding. Shall I count the ways? Its supple curves give it the demure of a tender french lady. Its sturdy shape suggest that she was a larger more refined lady of the night.
