Picasso's Gentleman with a Pipe and Flowers



Pablo Picasso
Gentleman with a Pipe and Flowers, 5.11.1968
Oil on canvas. 145,5 x 97 cm
Rosengart Collection, Luzern, Switzerland

Isn't it very colourful? I like it because it looks funny. I like the curly hair, the eyes are in their place, (Picasso's paintings usually show eyes in very funny places) and the colours are very vivid.

Do you like it?

Jane Eyre - My latest book

 Book Review: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre is a plain-looking orphan with a fiery spirit. She is being raised along side her three cousins under the watch of a cruel aunt who despises her. When Jane tries to stand up for herself, she is shipped off to Lowood, a low-end boarding school for the underprivileged. Conditions at the school were so horrible that many of Jane’s classmates died of consumption and other diseases.

After many years at Lowood, Jane decides to venture outside of the academic world and to seek employ as a governess. She is brought unto staff at Thornfield manner, under the peculiar and secretive Mr. Rochester, in order to supervise the master’s young French ward, Adele. Jane meets Rochester under odd circumstances. She continues to be both intrigued and baffled by her master. Eventually, her curiosity turns into feelings of love. The reader will find herself believing that Jane’s affections for Rochester are returned, though there is no clear evidence of how he is feeling.


The book is a romantic novel which will be enjoyed by both teenager girls and older women.  I don't think that the book is of any interest to boys as it looks like today's love stories, thought writtern in a very elaborate language.



 

I am back

I haven't written for a long time but that doesn't mean I'm not here. I just had wonderful summer holidays and they didn't include any internet. I travelled to many places and I had the time of my life. But now school has started and I'm back at my desk ready for a new school year. I love holidays but I also love school (Not the exams, though).

I'll be with you soon friends with all my news. I 've caught a cold and my nose is a bit of runny. Let's hope it's not catchy.

Be back soon
