Catching Up With Anderson Cooper Odds & Ends

Cleaning out our files and ran across a few photos to social media that haven't been posted yet....

 


 








Photo appears to be from a few years ago?




From a Worth1000.com photo contest of celebrities edited into classic paintings ~


Anderson Cooper was edited into this "Portrait of Jacobus Blauw1795" by Jacques-Louis David


The original (above) is in the National Gallery in London and this is their description of the original ~

This portrait is signed and dated in the year 4 of the French Revolutionary calendar (1795) and inscribed on the sheet of paper with the name and position of the sitter - Minister Plenipotentiary in Paris of the Dutch Republic. Blauw (1756 - 1829) had helped to establish the Batavian Republic in Holland in 1795 and had been sent to Paris to negotiate peace after the French invasion of the Netherlands. The portrait probably commemorates the successful outcome of this mission.

David's image of Blauw is notable for conveying the impression of a bond of sympathy between artist and sitter, resulting in a portrait of directness and sincerity. The rewards of earnest labour in the public service are suggested by the emphasis on the serious expression and on the right hand holding the quill. The figure of the sitter, clad in blue against a grey background, emerges from a subtle harmony of colours at the base of the painting, with the red of the chair to the left complemented by the pink cloth and the bright blue-green material covering the table.


And a Merry Christmas "selfie" from Anderson posted on Christmas Day to his Instagram account
