oil painting Description

Very few artworks today are as popular as Gheorghe Virtosu's paintings, including the present work titled Marx And Engels (2015). There may be very many artists today, some of them may be more skilled than Virtosu. However, there is yet to be a creator who can express ideas on a piece of art as Virtosu does. Virtosu's art has been and still is subject of much debate, given the many articles that have been written to try and describe his creation. Virtosu's Marx And Engels (2015), also outstandingly presents his artistic features.

The work has so far been associated with several interpretations. Some professionals have even stated that the artwork is difficult to apprehend. Some artists have proposed that the painting depicts not necessarily what the title suggests. Some painters have even recently described the picture as a random act. Despite its young age and the confusion over who is depicted in the painting, the Marx And Engels (2015) is still regarded as one of the important contemporary paintings. The art is indeed standing the test of time and has been written about and reproduced more than a hundred times.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels developed not only an analysis of 19th-century conditions but have also managed a plan for political action. Their work followed with a theory stating the historical inevitability of its success. In the Communist Party Manifest (1848), Marx and Engels presented their practical proposals for changing the world. The Manifest continues with an effort to position the Communist Party favourably concerning other social and political movements of the nineteenth century. Its conclusion is a stirring call for political action by the great, sleeping giant of the proletariat.

"Envisioning and capturing work on canvas is not where it lies dormant and static: it is a place where the expression becomes community and continues to expand. In this natural form, art can only exist if it is authentic. The part of the artist is the effort to engage organic expression in a way that has not been previously achieved." - Gheorghe Virtosu.

The painting is currently being loaned and exhibited in the Louvre museum, Paris. The museum protects the oil painting using two sheets of bulletproof glass that have been triple laminated. Given the high level of care granted and protection, it is accurate to state that the authentic Marx And Engels (2015) is difficult to see. Huge crowds gather in front of this canvas every day. When the museum is open, one can notice as well as the numerous flashes from the cameras. More than two million tourists flock the museum on an annual basis to get a glimpse of the painting.
