Surrealism has always been fascinating to me. Salvador Dali is easily my all-time favorite artist. BTW...this thread is way too sweet to let die with out more posts...cheers to USRoadTripper! 8)

My favourite work of art is "The guitar lesson" by Balthus. I love it because it's shocking. Too shocking to post here, most likely.

My favourite artist is Odilon Redon. All of the attached images are his, and in the collection of MOMA.

I honestly admit, I have no real fave amongst all the artists and illustrationists in the world, past and present/future....

But, this TPR Art Gallery is most enjoyable to 'stroll thru.'

And I fully agree with Teddymonster - keep this 'gallery' alive and pulsing with art and art projects. Old and new. Favorites, and...debatables.

Nuthin'likes a bit'o cultcha, eh? <grin>

And :) to RoadTripper for the thread's start. Yay.

I love Salvadore Dali's works. They are so surreal, they make you look hard at them, trying to find the details of the painting. He was such an amazing artist. For some reason, I love this one:

Dude, those are AMAZING! Thanks for introducing Redon to me. Gotta check out more of his works.

Okay, I'm sooooo not letting this sweet thread die on us.


Just ran into this beauty in a power point that my professor posted. I think it's absolutely amazing!

BTW...I'll see if I can snag a picture of the painting (set of two) that I am doing for my visual analysis. They also are truly amazing and have never been shown publicy for almost 40 years. To be continued...


One more thing...I forgot to mention how great Dennis's landscapes are. Good work young grasshopper! 8)

^I love the Tetons, that is the prettiest part of the country I've been to, and Ansel Adams is truly my favorite photographer.

To continue the trend of reviving old 'favorites' threads...

I'm really into Banksy's work at the moment.
