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:

Franz Marc is one of my favorites:

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

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.gwendolynoconnor.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.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
