I noticed there are a number of people here who are artists (or who like art). What are your favorite paintings? Who are your favorite artists?

MINE ARE:
(I'm not sure if these are the correct titles--the websites I linked with supplied the titles)
Monet "Morning on the Seine in the Rain"
Van Gogh "Cypress Against a Starry Sky"
Degas "The Star"
Renoir "The Sleeper"

Wow! Great topic! I love the study of any and all of Magritte's work:

My favorite nudes are those of Rembrandt, and he also painted my favorite self-portrait.


I have also always loved the beautiful light and dark studies of Georges de la Tour, particularly The Newborn:

Mygawd, don't get me started on sculpture! :rolleyes: :lol:

Franz Marc is one of my favorites:

http://www.artcyclop...marc_franz.html

If you're ever in Munich... make a trip to the Lenbachhaus! It's a fantastic little museum dedicated to the "Blue Riders" (the most famous being Wassily Kandinsky). They have an extensive collection of Marc's paintings... I especially love how he portrayed animals.

If you like Edvard Munch you might also like Egon Schiele (another tortured soul):

And of course... there's Frida Kahlo :D

I'm really lovin these paintings all of you are sharing! Especially the one's I've not seen before. There are a few I think I am going to put on my blog.

Starry Night By Van Gogh. http://www.vangoghga...tarryindex.html

I love it so much that I made my own version. I call it Seattle Starry Night. It is the Seattle skyline instead of the mountain and village.

How interesting that Van Gogh shows up on almost every list! He had a hard time living off his art during his life time. I love him too-- there is a power in his paitings.

I also love (trying not to repeat):

Gustav Klimt-- the juxtaposition of hard and soft, his mythic women
Fernando Botero-- for his humor and his rotund goddesses
Botticelli-- the showers of flowers get me everytime
Salvador Dali-- powerful, no matter what you think of him
Modigliani-- his long-necked goddesses are great
the Doigne Rousseau-- for his lovely dreams and lush vegetation. He's right up there.
the Artists of the Floating World
Artists of the Italian Renaissance (too many to name them all)

But there are many works where you will never know the artist:

Persian miniatures-- love them!
Greek and Roman mural painters and mosaic artists
Indian miniatures
Etruscan art
Greek vase painters (some are known)
Mandalas from the Buddhist tradition
Medieval European manuscript illumination and marginalia
The art on the borders and unknown bits of old maps
Egyptian painting and figures
Cave paintings-- Lascaux and Altamira and many, many more that you have to take a special trip for
Arab plasterworkers and calligraphers (some known)-- La Alhambra if I had to pick
Navajo weaving
Incan weaving
Mayan painting
Aztec codices
Chinese scrollwork (some known)
Moroccan pottery from Safi
Persian carpets
Hmong embroidery
Islamic tiles and the resultant traditions-- Turkish tiles are my faves.
Spanish damasquinado
Viking ornamentation (now labeled as Irish-- book of kells, etc.)
Pietra dura from Italy

There are too many beautiful objects out there to limit to a single list. It's a wonderful world.

Ooooh, I like most if not all of those mentioned and I am not computer-savvy enough to provide links but suspect you can look these up on your own should you so desire:


I love the dark art of Zdzislaw Beksinski. Also, Maxfield Parrish, Gauguin, Edward Hopper and Toulouse-Lautrec. and Georgia O'Keefe. Photography by Dorothea Lange (sp?)...

I also adore the illustrations of Arthur Rackham and Erte.

My favorite artist is my mom:
http://www.gwendolyn....com/index.html

When I was little she cleaned houses and worked as a maid at a B&B. She met a woman who was a painter, and cleaned her house for free for lessons. She's come a long way :) I'm really proud of her.

In keeping with the grander theme of the thread, I'm a huge fan of all things art nouveau. Its often hard to find out who did certain things, but the Musee D'orsay in particular has an amazing exhibit of the rooms and furniture of that time period. Alexandre Charpentier did some amazing room suites.

I tend to lean more towards objet's D'art myself.

Elonwy,

Your Mom's art is beautiful; thank you for sharing it with us! My mother and daughter are both artists as well and I live with a pretty talented visual artist and writer. I'm fond of artists! Me, I'm an actor and special educator- that's as "arty" as I get!

Wow. I love how you get the sense of a jungle just spilling over with plant-life. Her orchids are incredible. I wish I could get a closer look at the detail...

That is a wonderful story about her as well.

Thanks for sharing :)

Great topic. My favorites are Claude Monet, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, and Michelangelo. I have a big list too but those are my favorites. I have Van Gogh's Starry Night print hanging in my home; very calming print.

Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch.
I almost got kicked out of a museum in Spain for having a friend take a picture of me by it (pics are allowed but the flash accidentally went off).

On a recent visit to NYC, I saw a stage performance acting it out. It was very mind-stretching.
