Rosa Bonheur, Plowing in the Nivernais, 1849
Very good, and Dreyer was an admirer of and influenced by Hammershoi
I’m currently going through a phase of tremendously admiring Spaniard Juan Gris (1887-1927)
All the 20th century ideas of modern art? He grasped. His work has a chic-ness that Picasso never had.
I have appreciated the rise of growing interest in the work of Patrick Caulfield:
I like the bizarre, unsettling work of Eric Fischl:
Naturally (like so many cinematographers) I am enamoured of Edward Hopper:
The latest work of Wayne Thiebaud is truly genius:
ah yes, i like a similar Thiebaud; Reservoir, i think it’s called. Yes here it is
Kenji: He is fantastic, and you’re right about Dreyer i think. The “scandinavian whiteness” as Truffaut once called it.
Also i’m sure that Tarkovsky must have seen an Hammershøi-painting and imagined a camera floating smoothly around in the empty rooms. Just watch this mirror-video from 6:20: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pu49SYGRnk
PS: how is it possible to embed a video in the thread?
Some more Wayne Thiebaud:
Thiebaud seems to be managing something new
He seems to be inspired by the fauvists and also – in mood – by other painters like Hopper and Diebenkorn. I think he is catching the “american feeling” like Hopper did earlier.
… there is no art that makes me feel so proud of being Italian.

great tread…may very well be the best of all the site!
was trying some magritte to post…but i better learn from you
where can i find such nice image to post?
or do you have them on your own computers?
It’s kewl that Thiebaud has found a completely new vocabulary & style in his old age….
He could’ve just kept on trundling out pictures of cakes as he did in the 60’s and 70’s…
But his latest paintings of the last 20 years have a whole new set of excellent ideas afoot. I espceially like all the strange liberties he takes with Perspective…. It’s like: they make no sense… yet they make perfect sense…
