In our day and age, we snap a picture of what we want to remember, but before the snapshot came art.

Art focuses in on the essence of the scene rather than the whole of it. It homes in on what is most memorable from the scene the artist was viewing. DaVinci could have put detail into every part of Mona Lisa, but he chose to light up her smile. Van Gogh made it quite obvious that the brilliance of the stars in the night sky were the things meant to make you reminisce.

Artists not only preserve a visual reminder of a memory, they record the emotions associated with the memory

When we view the image, whether it is one from our own memory or someone else’s, we tap into that remembered emotion and relate it our own past experiences.

Such is the case of these famous paintings and illustration, from Pawel Kuczynski, who has given the best response while the world is contemplating on absurdities of modern world
