Favorite paintings by any artist?
If someone posts "The Starry Night" I will shoot them in the neck with a luger
"At Eternety's Gate"
Vincent Van Gogh

I like the persistance of memory. It makes me feel such despair. However, brain regions involved in the experience of emotion and goal setting show activation when viewing art. It clear that art appreciation is a matter of choice. People who see art and feel bad are choosing to feel so.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/15(Sun)15:51 No. 2811

Personally I'm a fan of Tunde Aragundade's White Paintings of the 20th Century. Nice Arse (1957) is probably my favourite of the collection, with The Fifth Elephant taking second place.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/21(Sat)18:55 No. 2814

After much deliberation I've discovered that's a "Spaced" reference
Do you know where you are?

Yes, because if a gentleman should be anything, it's blockheaded, and a "Spaced" fan

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/28(Sat)22:35 No. 2822

In a happenstance of fate, yesterday, I met the lady who played Marsha in Spaced.

She was not at all how I expected her to be.

In my opinion Zedslaw Bekinski, he may have had no formal training in art but his surrealist works are interesting.

"Meisje met de parel" Is without a doubt my favorite piece of art

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/08(Mon)18:53 No. 2878

Normally I am not a fan of the medieval-style guilded paintings, but one particular work in the art museum in Washington, DC caught my eye. I unfortunately do not know the name, but it depicts Jeanne d'Arc and various religious symbols around her (little angels and so forth), and it was striking. Does anybody know the piece? It's a large work composed of a few wood panels, painted and gilded as is the style of the era.

A friend of mine also holds this as his favorite piece. I can appreciate it.

The film ruined that painting for me.

My favourite painting is the attached piece by a street artist I encountered in Majorca. Sure it may not be grandiose or pretentious like more famous pieces of art but seeing the artist create it before my very eyes has made me appreciate it more than anything else. Even the drop of paint that fell centre stage marring has value to me making it more unique and giving it greater character in my eyes.

As you can probably guess from the low-quality photo, it's hanging on my wall as I type.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/09(Tue)01:13 No. 2882

I've got one that is similar, but from an artist with less skill. It was given to me as a gift by someone who I don't think has ever left the USA. Maybe street artists have picked up on pyramids as visually appealing, I'm not sure.

"Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire"
originally of Ilya Repin; 1880-1891
A painting copied severally, the story behind the canvas is most amusing.

watching his descent into schizophrenia through his art is fascinating.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/12(Fri)06:36 No. 2889

If I recall he painted a lot of cats. After the recent discovery of the link between human Toxoplasmosis infections and Schizophrenia I wonder if they are related.

There are many excellent artists that are no longer considered painters because their work is online.

Vincent Van Go's Starry Night, because I like the swirls in the sky.

There is a painting by Kazuo Shiraga that I cannot find. It is this consuming tower of texture and color that dwarfs the entryway of its exhibit. It's arced by angry snarls of glossy black against a background caked red and torn like open wounds. I stood there for ten minutes when I first saw it. Ten minutes by the clock, according to a friend who came back for me after going off to look at another exhibit. I wasn't sketching it, like my assignment stated, or doing anything at all. Just staring.

I know that people may laugh about modern art, but if it's done well it finds places in your mind that can be drowned and are happy to be drowned in form and color. Let's see you do that in five minutes.

If this is the Jeanne D'Arc piece you were referring to, it is a triptych, but it's not medieval. Still, it is a nice work.

Adoration of Joan of Arc by J. William Fosdick, 1896.

Not a painting, but an ink study by Peter Paul Rubens. Just that every single stroke is thought out and in the perfect position, it's just gorgeous. Everything that I strive to be when I draw.

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/07/25(Sat)15:50 No. 3072

I was curious since I didn't recognize the painting, but it is definitely academic/romanticist in style. There are unfortunately no major active artists that match the surname 'Brun' in the 1860s either.
I'd suggest looking into Lefebvre, Bougereau, Delaroche, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Bonnat etc. etc.

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/07/25(Sat)20:47 No. 3073

It's Christen Brun, titled A Basket of Ribbons.

can you help me identify a painting from van gogh
I saw it in the Rijksmuseum but can't recall the name.
It showed a foredt from a somewhat high angle and had a lot of undergrowth. red and orange were really present for a forest picture. and it was one of his less realistic paintings

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/06/28(Tue)21:29 No. 3181

Van Gogh did several paintings that match your description.

This page includes images of a few of them:

The rijksmuseum lists one in its collection here, but no picture:

The webMuseum has some other images, less realistic but with plenty of orange.

Hope this helps
