Default What's your favorite painting/artist and why?

Even the least artistically informed person has probably looked at a painting somewhere and said "Hey, I like that" to themselves. Art moves us in ways we sometimes don't even realize. So old or new, whatever style pleases you, tell us about some of your favorite artists or paintings and why they made an impression on you.
I will start by saying my favorite is Edward Hopper. He painted cityscapes and rural scenes usually devoid of people and was active from the turn of the century through the 1960's. I like his paintings because of their emptiness and even when they do have a person in them, it still seems to set a mood that you can imagine looking into the windows of the buildings he painted.

First to mind is the artist Sandro Botticelli, who sadly threw many of his own pieces on a bonfire during the Medieval period.

The Birth of Venus


I'll be back to add more later! Great thread, TX!

Pink Dawn is the name of the painting.
His work is hauntingly beautiful.

My favorite piece of art is a 1514 engraving by Albrecht Dürer called Melencolia I.



I love the alchemical symbolism and the mysterious iconography. There are many different elements to the engraving that make it so interesting.

My taste is varied. It ranges from symbolism to German expressionism to Dada.
But, Joan of Arc by Jules Bastien-Lepage is my all time favorite painting. It destroys me and buoys my spirit simultaneously.

Wow! The work by Franz Marc is amazing.

I like Michelangelo. I was moved when I saw the Pieta.
and Sir Edward Burne-Jones , The Depths of the Sea spoke to me.
I also enjoy Blake, his illustrations are remarkable.

There are so many.

Default What a FABULOUS thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dare say, I shall be in HERE all the time! I do love this thread! Thank You!!!!

I love the artist of the Pre~Raphealite era, Romantic era, Victorian era and early 20th century artists.....

Lord Leighton's "Flaming June" is hanging over my sofa ~ 4'x4'.....she's amazing. I have had her about 10 years now and every time I study her, I find something new....ohhhhhhhh......to see the original would bring me to tears, I believe!



One of my best memories is a 4~day pass to the Louvre....<sigh> Heaven.

Post Marc Chagall

I don't have a particular work of art that is my favorite, but I revere many artists. The paintings of Marc Chagall truly move me when he paints what I feel about love.



Thank you, M, for opening up this world for me.
