OIL IS LIKE A WORDÂ
The term refers to oil, which is the juice that is obtained from an olive, a seed or another source. For example: âI think Iâm going to order oil noodles with basilâ, âI like sautÃ©ed meat in oilâ, âLast night we ate pizza with garlic and oilâ.By extension to this meaning, in the field of religion is often spoken of âholy oilsâ to name the oils that are used in the framework of some rites. It is an oil that has been blessed and that allows, within Catholicism, to develop sacraments such as baptism.
The concept of oil is also used in art

ARTISTS WHO OPT FOR OIL TO EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS
âLa Giocondaâ by Leonardo Da Vinci, âThe persistence of memoryâ by Salvador DalÃ and the series âThe sunflowersâ by Vincent Van Gogh are just some of the most famous paintings in history made with the oil technique.
However, we must not pass other paintings made with oil, which are currently considered key pieces of art history. This would be the case, for example, of the following:
â¢ âPortrait of the Arnolfini spousesâ, which was made in 1434 by the great Van Eyck.
â¢ âThe Three Gracesâ, which dates from 1575 and is the work of Jacopo Zucchi.
â¢ âLas espigadorasâ, from 1857. This painting was made by Jean-FranÃ§ois Millet.
In the same way, we can not ignore the fact that there are different expressions that use the term that now occupies us. Good example of this are the following:
â¢ Walk in oil. In a colloquial way this verbal phrase is used with the clear objective of indicating that something is very arranged or composed.
â¢ Well goes the oil. Although it is already considered to be in disuse, there are people who still use this expression as a way to indicate that something is not going as it should. I mean, things are not right.
