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.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
