I enjoy looking at art as well.Impressionism is what I really like.I have a Toulouse-Lautrec painting,In the Moulin Rouge as a desktop.
If you look carefully at the painting you posted you will see that the lady wouldnt do much damage with the weapon which is in fact her fan in her hand.

A right wee chib wumin

Pity the picture is so small, bhoy.
One man's art, Cash, is another man's ... ? Didn't much like your Croegaert but I like the idea of a topic on what's one's favourite work of art. Toyed with the idea myself ... Leonardo would have been my opening shot.
Well done cash. Good topic to open.

My art preference has changed many times over the years. One style I have never taken to is abstract. Still love all the old masters but my favorite artist at the moment is still Modigliani.

TeeHeeHee
That I like, Murn.
Cash-Ma-Giro

I like portraits for the subject, and for quality of the artist's profession this is the one that started it all for me.

That was a joke Jupiter laugh.gif

This is what separates the men from the boys, if you will, Cash ... I'm reffering to your 2nd selection and not to Jupiter's observation.
When you look closely at the lighting and shading; in the blue dress and on the chair in particular, that's impossible to achieve ... for the rest of us mortals, with oil or acrylic paint.
I took a photo of a chrome coffee pot, outside on the terrace table, and always think that if I could paint that object; picture perfect, ... but we can all dream, eh?

You're so correct THH.

Incidentally, I wasn't too sure how this subject would fair in GG, so I'm pleased its been accepted.

I'm looking forward to viewing other members art preferences. It's an interesting subject and we won't all like each others tastes, but so what, that's what lifes all about, different views and different tastes.

I am of the firm belief that this topic will be a much loved and long lasting one.

My favourites are the impressionists and post-impressionists but I have varied tastes in art as in music. We need more posts on the arts- there are an awful lot of savage breasts here that need soothing. wink.gif
Jupiter
Im puzzled.
RonD

rossmckenzie
A know its Whistlers old mum but no idea what is on the wall Murn,would be keen to find out though!
TeeHeeHee
I've been looking at it magnified and wondered if it was a view of a Scottish town from the land.
but I'd like to know what it really is.
rossmckenzie
Click to view attachmentI think this is a brill topic..what hangs on your walls says so much about you.....I knicked this from my mum and dads kitchen...the picture does not do justice to the colour...its German, Paul Klee and I go looking for his work now.
murn
it is Whistler’s Black Lion Wharf

rossmckenzie
Ron I really like the Glasgow Boys picture...read a bit about them but other than that am ignorant.....I like that picture though.

Hi. Nothings wrong.I was wondering about the meaning of the comment about the men and boys.The comment about the ladies fan was meant to be tongue in cheek if by chance thats what it was referring to.
Cheers.

I know he's not everybody's cup of tea, but I love the works of Salvador Dali. There was a guy who really honed his skills to perfection.
Melody
I could spend all day staring at this work it's the famous " Auld Willie" by the genius of James Guthrie.
Melody
I also love Avril Paton's work " Rainmates"
Melody
I love "The White Drake" Ron. smile.gif It's fab.

Me also Melody,but I have not seen it in a while looking at him the noo it looks just like how I remember my wee granda ( that's my great granda) and for some reason I find myself greetin.

Never saw the Rainmates before but I love it can I get a copy of that any place smile.gif
Melody
Aw ah'm sorry ah made ye greet Lennox but ah know what you mean. smile.gif Avril Paton has her website I'm sure you'd be able to buy prints on line. She's the artists who does the Glasgow tenements ones. smile.gif
Lennox

I spent ages downloading a whole heap of Dali on Saturday and when I opened the file ... I got two pictures ! Bliddy annoying that is. tongue.gif wacko.gif

Love the melting watch myself. Also "Christ of Saint John of the Cross" now restored to the Art Gallery. Not for religious reasons obvously - he was a superb draughtsman and surrealist.

What a terrific thread My thanks to Cash-Ma-Giro for starting it up. It's wonderful to see everybody's favourites....always a chance to see new stuff and learn.

Cash wid ye stoap speaking tae me if Ah tellt ye Ah feasted my eyes on your Princess just last week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC? I've seen her before and still, I'm dazzled by Ingres' talent for fabrics. You just want to reach out and touch that impossibly beautiful blue dress.

I've no idea why, but this painting by Toulouse Lautrec speaks to me.. although Lautrec is not amongst my ab-fave painters. I love Caravaggio and at the opposite end of the spectrum...Renoir. Go figure. Being asked to name your all-time favourite is liking asking a Maw tae choose her fave wean....no' possible.
*TeeHeeHee*
I've just the evening with Mary watching a download of "This Is It" with Russian sub-titles; Mary went to the cinema on Saturday to see it, She'll get the DVD when it comes out.

Now I'm logged on and the first thing I look at is a Toulouse Lautrec painting of a Jacko look-alike biggrin.gif laugh.gif

Fantastic Chookie, it's a beautiful painting isn't it.
I can only visualize what the experience would be like when viewing the real thing....breathtaking no doubt. Good for you.

Glad you liked it Ross, they were contemporaries of Charles Rennie MacIntosh, but I am a mere neophyte concerning them. I loved touring the school of Art when I was in Galsgow last year.
I'm glad this topic made dig up some material on them. I also wna t to look up the Glasgow girls.

Nvever mind Lennox, it must be a Scottish moon ou there, as I said on another thread , I found my self bubbling on hearing Flowers of the Field on the bagpipes when I had the radio on the other day.

TeeHeeHee was refering to the "gifted talented artists" >> they being the men; and the boys was refering to those who have a gift of painting but nowhere near the quality of the master painter's paintings.

Your "tongue in cheek" was indeed what I was refering to in my reply.

Now go and enjoy the masters. biggrin.gif

Veermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earring".....magic.

I have a print of the attached, which I bought from Forth Art at one of our local highland games. This pic doesn't do it justice, as it is a 30" x 42" in dimensions. On the pic you can see the horses' breath. I always wanted a picture of a farmer ploughing with Clydesdales. It takes me back when I was very young, there were farmer's parks across the road and I used to see those lovely gentle giants at tattie howkin' time, and' my older siblings made some pocket money helping to gather the crop. Have a look at: http://www.military-art.com/mall/more.php?ProdID=8952
