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:

http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&q...mages&gbv=2

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:

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.

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.

    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!
