That painting was used as the cover art for the Dalis Car album "Waking Hour" (1984), which I'd posted here in the "best album cover art" thread: http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=56524&forumID=7&archive=0

My very favorite painting by my favorite painter, John Singer Sargent. 'GASSED' was painted in 1918 depicting a line of British soldiers with their eyes bandaged by mustard gas. Sargent as always, painted the truth.

I guess there aren't too many on this board who have any thoughts on paintings. Thought I'd resurrect this old thread and see.

I don't really know much about paintings. But I do like Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks," which I first discovered while once reading about Ridley Scott's influences for Blade Runner.



And, of course, "The Scream" by Edvard Munch.



And I don't know the artist, but for years my grandmother had this painting in her living room. I always hoped to have it one day, but several years ago the frame fell off the wall and the broken glass tore the image. frown



I'd love to know the artist and official title. It took me forever to find this image of it online earlier this year.

I was never a Trekkie but that last one and the others in that series are so evocative of what I most like about SF.

One of my earliest memories of paintings was this one by Henri Rousseau. I was about six or seven...had a set of "Book of Knowledge" books that was filled with wonderful things, including art, history and wonderful, fanciful stories. I'm not quite sure what it was about this painting that capitvated me most....the unusual style...the sense of quiet danger...or the wonderful color palette:




In later years, I would be captivated by many paintings...of landscapes, both natural and man-made. The more mystical/mythological, the better (from what I recall). One that depicted an historical event that made a strong impression on me was this one by Jacques Louis David. I was drawn in and mesmerized by the scale, the richness and tremendous detail:

It's very easy. Remove the http:// part of the URL, then put [img*] in front of the link and [/img*] after it. (But do not include the two *. I just had to put those there so that tags would be visible for you to see.) But it only works for URLs that are direct links to images, ending with .jpg or .gif for instance.

So this . . . 2.bp.blogspot.com/_MWr4cGcNtqY/TT3Lh_ELP8I/AAAAAAAAA8A/fKOzCxFpfuw/s1600/secretriver.JPG

becomes this . . .



If in doubt, just click Reply on my post to see a quote of my message and note how it was done. smile

My favorite paints are mostly classic female nudes.

I'll post them here if nobody objects.

Save the picture to your computer, then upload it to a free account you created at Photobucket.com. Then use the direct link to the image in your Photobucket account to post the image here. It will work better and more reliably than trying to cite an image from wherever it currently resides on the net.

"Carnation Lily, Lily, Rose" by John Singer Sargent.

I visit this painting at least once a year at the Tate Britain, London.

I told a guy at work how much I love this painting.

Him: She looks like a little pisspot.

Me: She'll steal your heart!

Him: She looks like she'll steal a lot more than that.
