Drunken Father Figure of Old

I don’t know much about painting, and haven’t seen many in person, but here’s a couple that I really liked:

Pablo Picasso’s Guernica (I saw it in person and it was a really powerful experience – I hadn’t “gotten” it until then)
Joan Miro’s Person Throwing a Stone at a Bird (although pretty much any of Miro’s paintings could stand in here)
Any one of Carlos Saura’s Crucifixions
Antoni Tapies’ Straw and Wood (That still counts as a painting, right?)
Salvador Dali’s Christ of St. John of the Cross
I also really like Dali’s Study for Christ of St. John of the Cross

That’s all I can think of, and, yeah, it’s all Spanish painters – sue me!

Alright, here are my top 20. About eighty percent of the following paintings I’ve seen in person so I am somewhat biased (I don’t believe in looking at paintings on a computer screen / in exhibition catalogues).

I also like Mark Rothko’s massive black and brown paintings at the Rothko Chapel in Houston. This is somewhat similar in style and may be a precursor to the one I like.

POLL CLOSED. Thanks for taking part, everyone. I’ll work out the results, and announce within a few days, though i doubt we’ll have a long list of paintings with over 1 vote. More interesting is checking out each individual selection. Like Grey Daisies’, so many new to me

Then the next poll will be favourite books.
