(Translation) 马奈 (未删减)

It's sad to call this series off. Jaime, want to start a Monet series?

This year there is a big Rambrandt 400 year celebration going on in Amsterdam. Should have visited Rambrandt Museum, it is grand, but did not get enough time. My significant other is a fan of Van Gogh, so I spent most of my time in Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, just wanted to try my best to undersand him, this "him" refers to either Van Gogh or my sweetheart, I had to admit that I am not artistic enough, I think he is a fine artist, did a lot of fine work, I respect him a whole lot, his talent, his attitude, his hard work, his view of life, him as a person, just his artistic representation of objects is not my type, I like more brighter cleaner happier style, Van Gogh is too dark, too intense, especially in his early days, his later ones are better appreciated, of course, obviously his sunflowers, but overall, I am an old-school, impressionism is as far as I can go, post-impressionism like Van Gogh is a bit off track, then this Picasso, the whole world can love him, but me, incapable of appreciating his work, let alone his personality. To me art should be sane, beautiful, meaningful. Enjoy more tranditional paintings even better, those ones in Louvre are hearty, and those scuptures, oh, heavenly ......

No doubt, these work of Manet's and Yong Joon's and Jaime's, are definitely art.


在进行马奈系列艺术创作的过程中, 某些作品我没有收入系列中. 但是我们亲爱的勇俊的每一幅照片都是如此珍贵, 就象珍宝一样值得我们仔细品味, 因此我还是将它们贴出来, 取名为"未删减马奈"(呵呵,或者还叫什么呢?), 大家来当裁判吧......

(Translation) 马奈 (五)

Finally got around to translate this. Feel sorry for being so late. Feel relieved for finishing this. Feel more cultured after going through the learning during translation.


亲爱的姐妹们 …… 正如以前许诺的,我将以此最后一篇结束马奈系列.当A女士在前次的评论中探询有关”酒吧女郎”的油画时,她使这位Z女士得到了灵感,”让我们来以欣赏这样一幅如此非凡的油画来结束这个系列吧!”. 希望你们喜欢 ……

马奈的最后一幅名作”女神游乐厅酒吧” (又译 "恋人游乐园酒吧”) 于1882年完成, 他注入了动人和真诚的努力,作为他一生最终的重大声明。

Jaime's Den - Manet Uncut

While AS Director's Cut is rolling out, Jaime gave us her Manet Uncut. They are so beautiful, Jaime, thank you so much for these artistic work.

Did our prince come into my mind while I was in Paris and Amsterdam? Remotely but surely, in the back of my mind though. Then the last day in Belgium, a familiar melody played in my mind, took me a while to recall what it was, guess after a few minutes of googling in my head, finally realized that it was the theme song of "Barefoot Youth", which I had 3 episodes yet to finish before I left for the trip. I still have not finished it yet - Haven't turned on the TV since I came back for a week. But I never forget to turn on this PC. Look what I've got here, such a wonderful treat. I love the first picture in this Manet Uncut, the color matching is perfect! And oh, my favorite Sympathy sunglasses photo of him, handsome! Actually I have to admit YJ is a king of eyeball pulling. He is shining in every picture, then Jaime did a nice job augmenting his beauty with Manet's harmanic drawings.


Along the way of creating the Manet artworks, there are certain ones which did not make it into the series. Since every picture of our dear Yong Joon is precious and like a treasure to savour on, so I’ll post them here and call it (haha, what else?) ‘Manet Uncut’, you’ll be the judge …..
