    Post one of your all-time favorite paintings

    I actually don't really have one because only today I started really looking at other artists.
    You can use this to find the image, or just google image search the name.

    Egon Schiele - Seated Nude

    One of his studies, really - not what some consider a "finished piece."



    Not my all time favorite, because I don't have one. Just one of about a hundred works of art that I can't get out of my mind.

    schiele was a god.

    Francis Bacon - Figure with Meat

    Everytime I see this painting in person I end up staring at it for 5 minutes straight with a huge grin on my face.

    I actually can't find my favorite painting. The site I first saw it at changed what pieces they displayed.

    This is another painting from Malcolm Liepke though which is also very very good.

    John Singer Sargent's 'Carnation Lily, Lily Rose'

    Well known to many of us, I'm sure. I don't think I could ever choose a favourite painting, but this was the first piece of art to move me to tears.

    Lots of fascinating JSS info at JSSGallery.org

    Entrophy, time devouring living beings... This is the only picture I actually have dreamt about. Not nice, but nice. Goya was the first expressionist and the first impressionist.

    I have this one in my "top ten" as well... The original french title uses the word "escalier" for staircase, which has a second meaning which works in a typical Duchamp way. He was also the guy who did the up-side-down urinal. Just a little fyi (I just realised, maybe i wanna be a teacher... weird)

    my little entry to this museum would be this, or one of the many other works by Alberto Giacometti

    hyver, thanks for the additional information on duchamp. I also like the piece you posted within this forum. I'm definently learning a lot about different artists, some I never even knew about. Kudo's to the topic creator and those who posted on it thus far.

    Anyone have any interesting facts? (Maybe they are well known even, or possibly not interesting - heh - i've never taken art history though so all knowledge is new to me).

    For example, I never knew zorn only used 4 colors on his palette. white, black, yellow and vermillion. I'm sure everyone else knowst hat though, I just think it's cool.

    I'm particularly interested in Sargent. I heard that his students weeped after his initial brush strokes because they were so strong and quick and perfect. I dunno , any details would be nice.

    3rd of May, 1808. By Goya.

    I always thought this piece was very powerfull. It's quite rich with mood and symbolism. It takes place in a very politically turbulent Spain (I bet you can guess the date). You have an innocent man wearing white taking on a Christ-like pose while a faceless mechanical military prepares to execute him. Everything about this piece suggests hopelessness like the dark clouds, the pile of corpses and the line of those waiting for the same fate. Even the monk adds to it as he gives the rights just like he probably did for those already dead. It was a propaganda piece in the end but it was definitely a well convieved and executed one.

    i don't have any picture that would be my absolute favourite-i enjoy art wherever i see it.
    for the moment (and as it was the first one to come into my mind) i'm gonna pick this one,by ted wing III alias "grendel".

    i just love it and everytime i think more about the robots i get somewhat scared because i imagine how easy one of those could crush my skull.

    This one became my favorite the other day when i saw the tattoo and the lighting. I rarely see people render tattoos to that detail so it made it kinda special in my memory of paintings.

    Kyoht, one that I definately worship. lol. I know he does anthro art, but I love the native feel to this. If I remember correctly this is watercolor and colored pencils. I love his work.

    I don't think that the subject matter should be an issue, what is wrong with well rendered anthromorphic art? I enjoy the Goldenwolf site (one of the links on Kyoht's Links section). The work is well done, the proportions are believable and the colours nice and subtle in both artist's work.

    Well Anthro art is not normally my taste, but the artist definately caught my eye with this. I like it her work. Maybe it is something I should get more into.

    Tully: Kyoht is a woman. Her name's Heather Baeder.

    Yeah, I just found that out. heh. *my mistake.*
