Pain And Suffering

Rating: 5.0


.
Great art does seem most to flourish
Where there is great pain to nourish
Perhaps pain never falls asleep
But suffers to drive art's roots deep.

Indeed, the suffering is an essential part of the philosophy of creativity in art and literature as well. You hit the target very well, our excellent poet 10/10.

Hi Susan. Yes, in my opinion the two greatest portraits ever painted do show pain and suffering Rembrandt's portrayal of an old lady and Giovanni Bellini's portrait of the Doge Loredano. The construction of the Taj Mahal is another example. A wise and well written poem. Time you sharpened your pencils and gave us a few more poems, Susie Woozy!

You are so kind to me but I'm thinking yoiu should be sharpening your pencils too! ! ! ! For me, the most pain-filled painting is Picasso's Guernico [spelling? ] The first time I saw it- the agony in it sent me to the floor.
