  3. -Name: L'Ange du Foyer
    -Author: Max Ernst
    -Style: Surrealist
    -Date: 26 February 1937 (France)
    -Main features: l'ange du foyer in english means the angel of the hearth (or home). Ernst portrays a vivid creature in a moment of joyous expression. Seemingly alive and grinning, the individual bursts with color, leading with a determined gape of his mouth and pleasant squint of his eyes, and showing no regard for how he may appear. By human standards, he is in some ways horrifying yet ultimately fascinating. He embodies movement and attention-getting displays yet cannot avoid aesthetic imperfections that may be perfect for him, but uncomfortable for others.

    -Style: Kinetic sculpture.
    -Date: From 1915 to 1965

  7. Author: Frank Lloyd Wright
    Style: Rational and functional architecture.
    Date: 1903-1905
    Name: Darwin D. Martin House
    Main Features: The Darwin D. Martin House Complex is considered one of Wright's architectural masterpieces and one of his greatest residential works during his Prairie House period. Its excellence is partly evidenced in the unified composition set in a harmonious landscape, a composition comprised of six buildings which are linked in style and layout.


  8. Author: Vladimir Kush.
    Style: Surrealism
    Date: ¿? I only could find the date when the author was born 1965 so the painting must be between 1965-2015
    Name: Golden Anniversary.
    Main Features: This painting is really interesting. If you look at the two conveniently placed low clouds, you can see they form a sort of cartoonish content pair of eyes along with the yellow banana boat in the background as a nose and the hammock banana forms a smile. The actual banana fruit could be a tongue or a cigar or something else. To stretch it a bit, there’s a boulder in the middle of the fork in the ocean that almost looks sort of like a beauty mark or a mole below the eye.

  9. -Author:René Magritte
    - Style: Surrealism.
    -Date: 1928–29
    -Name: The Treachery of Images
    - Main Features: The picture shows a pipe. Below it, Magritte painted, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe.", French for "This is not a pipe."
    His statement is taken to mean that the painting itself is not a pipe. The painting is merely an image of a pipe. Hence, the description, "this is not a pipe."
