The Doctor – James Whistler Lithograph
“The Doctor” by James Whistler is just one of the thought provoking pieces of art on display at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, NV. “The Doctor” is a full body portrait of Whistler’s brother who used his skill as a surgeon during the American Civil War and after in London and Paris. Whistler uses what he knows as inspiration. This is what makes his work so personal and intimate. James Whistler was one of the great artists seen during the nineteenth century though “The Doctor” is one of Whistler’s later lithographs. He loved music as well as art. “The Doctor” was etched in recognition of his brother coming to his residence in Paris to see his sick wife. He has a great reputation as an etcher. Much of his work is of family portraits. Whistler uses much detail in his brother’s face, but his use of lines and shading is exquisite. There are no colors except black in his etchings to imply harmony. Lines are more important than color and black is the fundamental are two principles he believed true. Black was also one of the first colors used by artists. During the 18th and 19th centuries, black was a dominant color in fashion. Paris became the fashion capital of the world. Lines are just a piece of music just as the lines he uses are only pieces of his art. They are only pieces of a whole.

Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada possess many different styles of art from two dimensional pieces to three dimensional pieces. Painting is obviously the most common medium used, but three dimensional artwork is becoming more and more popular. Sculptures are three dimensional art pieces. Salvador Dali dabbled in painting, drawing, photography, sculpting, and cinematography. He was a great Spanish surrealist. Politics later disconnected Dali from the surrealist movement, but he always considered himself a surrealist as is portrayed in his work.
Salvador Dali’s piece “Dance of Time III” is seen displayed at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada. Dali’s “Dance of Time III” is a bronze sculpture of a melted pocket watch. Dali’s melting watches are seen in many of Dali’s works, and are very well-known. “Dance of Time III is the third piece of his Dance of Time series. Dali is described as being eccentric. He is known for his flamboyant moustache. He definitely danced to his own beat as he depicted in his sculpture. Science also played a major role in Dali’s life. The idea of quantum mechanics and Werner Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle were accepted into the field of science. Time has so much to do with science hence the watch. Time is precise in respect to science, but Dali includes the human notion of time as being unknown.

Noble Purity- Mona Lisa by Mark Lewis can be seen inside Centaur Art Galleries in Las Vegas Nevada. Many of Lewis’ pieces are on display their as well. “Noble Purity- Mona Lisa” is a mixed media painting. Mixed media is a combination of fine art with digital media. The subject of “Noble Purity – Mona Lisa” is the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. The Mona Lisa is one of the best known pieces of artwork in the world. Noble refers to a distinguished person. In the 1500’s, high status was usually a prerequisite for having a portrait produced. Purity can refer to the paintings subject as being simple. The woman in the portrait was wearing nothing extraordinary, and the background seems realistic; it is that of the countryside. Lewis tends to focus on different genres. Art is his way of documenting what he sees to be important. Mixed media offers much self-expression to the artist. The artist can achieve many effects with mixed media as well. Lewis began his career as a photographer only after serving his country in the United States Navy. Photography was only just the beginning, he dabbled in all the fine arts eventually. “Noble Purity- Mona Lisa” is a collage of different pieces of the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. Many of Lewis’ concepts were shaped around the idea of technology. His style uses a very particular technique. Lewis’ talent creates inspiration. Mark Lewis is one of the many contemporary artists Centaur Art Galleries in Las Vegas exhibits.

LeRoy Neiman – Serigraph Artist
LeRoy Neiman is best known for his use of striking colors and his lively scenes of sporting events and leisure activities. He interpreted the life he knew. The setting of the serigraph is a Las Vegas casino. The viewer’s attention is brought to the center table where the dealer and the many gamblers are playing the game of “21.” The gambler’s faces are expressionless to portray their “poker faces.” Neiman has a great talent for making the observer feel a part of the scene. “21” is a fast moving game. Neiman has a very sudden style about his artwork. His style helps give the observer the impression of the rick associated with the game. Some debate the scene depicted is inside the MGM Grand. You can also see many of LeRoy Neiman’s other pieces inside Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas are center around the lion. The MGM Grand has a lion habitat and much of its entertainment includes the lions.

Tamar the Daughter-in-Law of Judas – Lithograph By Marc Chagall
“Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” is just one of many of Marc Chagall’s original lithographs that can be seen at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada. Chagall created this color lithograph in 1960. He was born in 1887 and was a Russian-French artist until 1985. He was probably one of the first European modernists to be seen. Chagall never forgot his Jewish culture either. His Jewish background probably inspired much of his work. Art tells a story; it is history. A picture is worth a million words. Chagall was asked to illustrate the Old Testament; therefore; he traveled to Palestine. He wanted to experience the “Holy Land” as it is sometimes referred to as for himself to give him inspiration for his work. “Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” wasn’t an illustration used in the Old Testament, so it was probably for himself. To remind himself of his background. To be proud of it. Later in life, he was not a practicing Jew, but he did consider himself always a Christian.

The story of Tamar and Judas can be read in the Book of Genesis. In this piece, Chagall didn’t decide to use many colors in this piece: red and black. I don’t think this painting requires much color. Red is primary which seems fitting because it is bold. From the story, we can see Tamar’s personality as bold. Chagall’s choice of red captures the viewer’s attention. Red also invokes much emotion. A biblical scene should evoke such emotion. Many of Marc Chagall’s paintings can be found at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas. All of Chagall’s paintings have a story behind them and a very real to the artist himself.
