Day 3

“La terre est bleue comme une orange” – Paul Éluard

Happy Tuesday 💙🍊

In a fascinating attempt at self sabotage, I’ve taken a module at University where we analyse French art and compare it with poetry… So basically, in the words of Éluard, the earth is blue like an orange to me rn. My most inspired thought from this week’s class is that, entertainingly, paintings connect with songs so much better… Here’s Magritte as an example:

It’s Raining Men – The Weather Girls…

Can’t feel my face – The Weeknd…

Cannonball – Damien Rice…

Thanks uni for making my brain hurt but seriously Magritte is a genius, enjoy:

P.s. the earth is round like a pizzadilla

  1. Magritte was definitely a genius, but so was Eluard! It is so wonderful that you are connecting art to music! Not many people do that, but many artists have been inspired by music.
