Lust for Beauty: Top 10 Interesting Instagram Accounts
A selection of the most interesting Instagram accounts to help you learn about art, fashion, photos, and cinema.
Skeptics think that Instagram is a bunch of cats, legs and food, or an opportunity to observe people's personal lives. Instagram is a live photo magazine of creative personalities and world-famous organizations. We represent the most fascinating and useful accounts on Instagram, which is worth following.
As a rule, when it comes to a particular film, the names of filmmakers and actors come to mind. But the perception of the frame depends on the film artists. Change the film artist – and the film will make a 180-degree change, even if all the same actors and directors are involved.
The @colorpalette.cinema account is finally designed to pay attention to this flagrant injustice. There are posted frames from famous and not very films and TV shows, accompanied by a palette of shades used in this particular scene. For example, there are only shades of blue and black at the moment from the movie “Exorcist”. You can see nothing but beige and brown shades in the scene from Spike Jonze's picture “Her,” which Joaquin Phoenix takes a shower. Moreover, this account will help facilitate the selection of clothes and combinations in the interior – it is thanks to the color palettes that you can see which shades fit together.
The Victoria and Albert Museum is rightfully considered to be one of the main museums in Great Britain. This place is especially appreciated among fashion fans because there are regular exhibitions dedicated to eminent designers. The Instagram account is a direct continuation of the museum's expositions. An expert gives a detailed comment under each publication. In general, fashion historians and art lovers should definitely follow.
While the weather does not attract spending time on the street, you can devote your free time to studying inspiring films of a New Wave. If you do not know how to approach this period in the cinema, the thematic @nouvellevaguefr account will come to the rescue.
An ideal account for anyone who hates long photo captions. Here you will find only footage and short videos from films with their names in the descriptions, as well as photographs of Paris by Henri Cartier-Bresson or Helmut Newton. Young Alain Delon, Anna Karina, Catherine Deneuve, Gene Seeberg, Jane Birkin, and other heroes look at each other with enamored eyes and wear clothes that modern designers would envy. In general, it's a universal Instagram in order to be inspired by both cinema and fashion.
Everything that you wanted to know about classical art, but were afraid to ask, the official account of the Louvre will tell you. Museum specialists speak not only about the everyday life of the famous monastery and planned events, but also analyze the masterpieces of sculptors and artists. The @museelouvre account raises issues of the symbolism of color, the meaning of gestures and poses, the story of the depicted historical figures. Here you can find a lot of valuable knowledge.
The famous association of Magnum photographers has existed for a long time, now its “branch” has appeared on Instagram. In the account of the same name, you can see not only the best examples of photo art but also read about the history of a particular frame, as well as find out the biography of your favorite master. It is a flawless page from aesthetic and cognitive points of view.
The @hermitage_museum account is as diverse and informative as possible – from ancient sculptures to the works of Anselm Kiefer, from painting to jewelry. It is ideal for those who come to St. Petersburg again and again and can not see all masterpieces. It's a real treasure and pure pleasure for art lovers.
It is the focus of classical art, as well as the art of the ancient world. The account of the British Museum will be useful primarily to those who want to get comprehensive information about the disappeared civilizations. Daily reading of one of the most interesting Instagram accounts is quite capable of replacing a course of lectures on the history of art. It's a great time saver!
Wong Kar Wai, or Chinese beauty. This page is dedicated to individuals who want to understand the art of director Wong Kar Wai. In this account, you can find notes about Wong Kar Wai's color obsession and absolute flux of consciousness. There are a lot of thoughtful, deep, mournful quotes of people who feel very intensely, who love and hate with a fiery passion that bursts out in the garish, expressive aesthetics of the films.
The excellent account of the Metropolitan Museum deserves no less attention than the museum itself: the detailed comments provided with the publications on the page replace the professional guide. Perhaps the main feature of the account is that contemporary art is on an equal footing with ancient art, as well as with fashion. This allows you to get the widest picture of cultural life on a global scale and not get bored with the monotony of art history posts.
When we visit this page we read in the Bio, “Poetry is untranslatable, like the whole of art”. This ideal account for those who are crazy about films d'auteur from all over the world. Why are Andrei Tarkovsky's works so unforgettable? What techniques does Wong Kar Wai use to create an intimate romantic atmosphere? What did Stanley Kubrick give the world of cinema? You will find the answers in this cinema geek account.
