Yes, Thiebaud shows the influence of Diebenkorn, but the mix of patterns within the figurative element is marvellous.
Some unsung artists were the naturalists who had to observe the newly discovered creatures in close detail. As well as Maria Merian who travelled to Surinam, i like Mark Catesby (both well before Audubon)
and it goes back to the early cave paintings, Durer did some grand work too, and Da Vinci’s studies
A few more favourites of mine (the first one had a great influence upon Francesco Rosi’s way of depicting the corpse of Salvatore Giuliano):
Andrea Mantegna – Cristo Morto
Antonello Da Messina – Vergine Annunciata
Paolo Uccello – La Battaglia di San Romano
Andrea Del Verrocchio, Leonardo Da Vinci – Battesimo di Cristo
Michelangelo Merisi Da Caravaggio – Crocifissione di San Pietro
I’m more familiar with the section of Battle of San Romano in London, it’s extraordinary. The sky is missing isn’t it? Yes, so many great Italian masterpieces, making today’s art look so shallow and feeble.
Oh thanks for mentioning The Dead Christ and Salvatore Giuliano, which i’ve added on the list Painters and Films
You are absolutely right: the National Gallery’s panel of La Battaglia di San Romano is a gorgeous one, too! I’m pleased of having suggested you something for your list: I didn’t know the one about “Painters and Films”, but now I have seen it and I can congratulate with you… great job! ;)
Il quatro stato, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo
This was used in Bertolucci’s 1900.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, On the Terrace
Another spectacular Off-Cinema Topic which needs a new bump after a month or so.
I’ve also contributed here by posting some neglected works of art some pages back, if I recall.
I’m more about modern art than older paintings. (even though i like both) 20th century is definitely my favorite century ever.
Franz von Stuck (one of my favorite from this german symbolist)
Jackson Pollock (i really like this one work)
Older, but i needed to put this one because of Tarkovski :
Pieter Brueghel, Hunters in the Snow
Tuskerhorian – Henry Darger
Man With Dog – Francis Bacon
These two artists have inspired so many it becomes hard to distinguish.
