“ha, that’s great to find Portuguese renaissance art here, it’s very neglected.”
Kenji, you know your art.
Akira, so do you. Now go over to the arrogance ruining auteurs thread..
Kenji: I should find more time to look at all these wonders. And to post some more. I discovered Antonio López through Érice’s movie, and yes, indeed, there’s something mysterious on his paintings: it’s the stillness in each of them, the silence… it’s really something Erice portrays, as well.
Munch: Sick Child, a portrait of Sophie, the artist’s sister, that died at young age of tuberculosis.
Lucien Freud / one of his “teenager” drawings.
The School Of Athens – Raphael
Tondo Doni – Michelangelo
Rain, Steam, and Speed, The Great Western Railway – J.M.W. Turner
Romare Bearden: Summertime
Charles Alston: Family No. 1
Bearden and Alston were both cousins of my dad’s family.
Sorry, I’m really late on this, but Kenji put Rousseau’s Tiger in a Tropical Storm on the first page. I really dislike Rousseau. Not to stir anything up, though. I just dislike him.
Filmy Andy: that Dali “la muchacha en la ventana” is great, Monet’s Madame Monet and Her Son as well.. Here are some of my personal favorites:
Theodore Duret – Vuillard
Le Petit Cafe – Vuillard
The feast of Belshazzar – Rembrandt
Man in Gold Helmet – Rembrandt
Palace From Mula – Monet (for convenience sake I chose this small picture, but you can find a bigger version on Google)
Bathing at La Grenouillere – Monet
I read somewhere that Rembrandt didn’t actually paint the beautiful “Man in Gold Helmet”.
Wow, now that you pointed it out I’m actually reading an article about it in “TIME” right now
“The Nut Gatherers” by William Bouguereau
“The Calling of St. Matthew” by Caravaggio
Thanks for the link, Guillotine! (Also, thanks for everyone who’s posting paintings: I was up till 7 am last night going through every page of this forum, googling painters and paintings and reading up on what I don’t already know – a lot.)
I just posted this in the Chris Marker thread, but it seems especially relevant here:
To anyone who hasn’t seen it, Chris Marker has a Youtube channel, and one of his videos is called “Pictures at an Exhibition”.
I’m quite sure they’re his own photoshops, which are intriguing and (more often) hilarious, particularly when they touch upon your own personal knowledge of art history, film history, or world history!
“Pictures at an Exhibition”:
George Romney, Self-Portrait
Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955), cityscape artist born a son of artists in Monmartre, Paris
The Lovers I & II by Rene Magritte
