I would love to have Edward Hopper's atmospheric Nighthawks hanging on my wall!


me too! I adore almost all artworks from the 1920 to the 1950s.

I don't think they qualify as real paintings, but M.C. Escher did create fabulous drawings.
Mondriaan is also a favorite of mine.

I was in the Museo del Prado in Madrid and was thrilled by the works of Goya. I was equally thrilled at how packed the place was! Sure, it's a famous museum and Madrid is a tourist destination, but our local museum gets top-notch exhibits (and south Florida is a tourist spot; just not a cultural one) and gets nowhere near that kind of crowd.

Believe it or not, there's a charlatan who's trying to sell a pretty rotten copy on eBay:

I was in the Museo del Prado in Mardid and was thrilled by the works of Goya. I was equally thrilled at how packed the place was!

I've been to most of the major arts museums in Europe, and the Prado in itself alone is worth visiting Madrid for. The other museum in Madrid which I love is the Museo de Arte Thyssen-Bornemisza, which has an amazing, amazing collection.

Monet's Le pont japonais sur le bassin aux nymphéas à Giverny (1899)


A lovely setting, a very refreshing painting.

Rene Magritte:





“Personal Values”.



”Time Transfixed”.



”Golconda”
.



We always get a major kick outta remembering our original introduction to this one via our favorite and most influential Art History professor Will Hauptmann. Nobody – not one singular soul! - in the entire flamin' class GOT it when Will translated the painting’s title – “This is not a pipe.” The answer’s as obvious as it is playful and truthfully accurate) wink

More than just have it hanging on the wall, I actually want to go into the painting. I want to eavesdrop on the conversation between the man and the woman, to feel the stillness of the hour and experience the time when it was painted.

'Ophelia' is one of my favourites as well. We own this print too.

Another of Millais' which I think is quite striking is 'Mariana'

When I saw the Mona Lisa for real the colours seemed more vibrant than on TV or the internet.

That's because it's not a painting, it's a photograph. Geesh. Don't they teach anything in conspiracy class anymore?

That's one conspiracy theory I would believe!

My favorite artist is John Atkinson Grimshaw. My favorite work by him is Lamplit Bridge. Apparently, it is extremely rare. I can find lots of works by Grimshaw on an internet search (I like most of them), I cannot find that one!

Durn If’n U Ain’t Rite, PhillyJay Department:

We couldn’t canvas (hah?) up a visual of your favorite, either. Still, we gotta offer up our general thanks for the specific introduction to an artist we were woefully ignorant of afore hand – and we quite take to his versions of



“Lady of Shalott”.



Admiringly atmospheric in the extremis wink

I LOVE his work. Lamplit Bridge hangs in the foyer of my home. If I had a reasonable digital camera, I would take a picture of it. Here is another by him that is more along the theme of my painting.
