Ingres discussion over borritos

A month or so ago we were all at lunch and Sean started talking art. We hardly ever do that (huh?) so I discretely recorded a bit of it. Ben is on the left and Sean is on the right. Justin is next to Sean. Sean is describing an Ingres painting he saw at the met that had an extraordinary surface quality. We all like hear to Sean talk art. Soon we shall get our fill.

    Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) is pronounced “ANG-gruh.” If you want good, high-definition images of his works and drawings, I recommend going to the following link: http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/art.asp?aid=31

    I also have put a brief discussion of his working method on my website: http://www.beardedroman.com.

    The painter’s name is Jacque-Auguste Dominique Ingres, and is pronounced “AN-gruh.”

    He was a student of David, and perhaps the most influence French painting teacher in the nineteenth century. For more information about him and his approach, you can go here: http://beardedroman.com/?p=161
