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 don't know if this is the right artist, Michael, but the style is very similar to Frank C, McCarthy....famous for his beautiful paintings of the Old West.

What do you think ?.....

I have this book which is a good starting point for his work....




You may be more familiar with some of his other paintings ? big grin

One of my favourite artists is Domenikos Theotokopolos - better known as El Greco.

I love his elongated style and use of colour.

Me too, Jim. I have the UK Quad poster with this artwork.

This brings up a question for me...

- What type of material is best for reproductions (canvas, etc)?

As someone else said, anything by Frazetta, as well as the already mentioned Magritte and most of Dali.

Additionally, anything by Richard Corben. His work will be familiar to any fans of "Heavy Metal". He has an almost-3D quality that leaps off the page.

Yeah, my "tastes" can be pretty, um, primitive. But I likes 'em.

Thanks for the introduction to Charles Demuth, Neo.

...which, I should add, you've posted twice over the past two years. It must really be a favorite of yours. wink

Monet - Garden at Giverny

 
 Posted:   Aug 8, 2013 - 1:58 PM   
 By:   Jim Phelps   (Member)

Reeler, I was actually at Giverny but it looks so much better as Monet portrays it. The essence of the place is all over his painting.

Absolutely stunning.

His best painting IMO. I like this angle the best though. Another version looks from the right, and another looking straight to the house.

I also like Saint-Georges. I have heard stories Monet was going blind by then...

Our Other Favorite Modern Western Master Department:



Whilst one wouldn't be amiss describing Frank McCarthy as a Romantic artist,



This current gent is very much in the Realistic mode.



And he's also done distinguished time elsewhere (didn't know it was him, didja? big grin)









If you haven't yet scoped out his breathtaking work, as "Scent of a Woman"'s Col. Frank Slade would say:



"Get a MOVE on!!!" wink

Gary, if you haven't already, make sure you watch the excellent Frazetta documentary "Painting with Fire." You'll love it.
