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.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
