"The Maiden" Gustav Klimt, 1913


I custom-framed a 9"x12" print of that when I was working as a picture framer almost two decades ago. It's hanging in our hallway.

Nice! BTW, (assuming it's not the original) where do you buy your prints?

Ack. I meant to edit my post above, but replied to it instead. I was working at Michael's Arts & Crafts at the time.

Jean Metzinger- Table by a Window, 1917



In the years since this thread began, I've gone stark raving koo-koo over paintings and have finally gone full-tilt boogie with my longtime (but mild) interest in them. I'm getting that same wonderful vibe I had when I first got into jazz...

This thread will not die.

"I cannot be understood at all on this earth. For I live as much with the dead as with the unborn. Somewhat closer to the heart of creation than usual. But not nearly close enough."

Paul Klee- Southern (Tunisian) Gardens, 1919



First discovered Klee's work in a 1960 Downbeat article on pianist Bill Evans:

"[Evans'] clothes are just about what's in fashion, he shaves every morning, and his Manhattan apartment is an ordinary three-room affair. A bed, a few chairs, and a kitchen table is the furniture complement, all of it thoroughly bourgeois. A piano takes up half the living room. There is a hi-fi set and a television set, the latter of which he sits before almost every afternoon to apprise himself of the sports scene. He has some 50 books in two bookcases, but only two paintings decorate his walls. One, by Gwyneth Motian, wife of his drummer, Paul Motian, is a small but extremely effective abstraction. The other, by himself, is an attempt at design. It's terrible, but this has not stopped him. He continues to paint with this as his credo: "I can be as good as Klee at least."

American Nightmare posted some of my favourite Bosch works. I was lucky enough to see an original Bosch (Christ Mocked) in London in 2005.

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



It's now hanging on my wall. Not the original.

As is the right panel of Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.

My favorite paints are mostly classic female nudes.

I'll post them here if nobody objects.

Who cares if they do? Think of it as a blow against the forces of artlessness.

"Yeah, I don't like the kind of art that doesn't look like anything."
