its a boat
looks like a stanley edwards to me
e2a: the more i look the filthier that picture is. the only really decent bit of painting is the squirrel on the right hand side.
you can see the squirrel looking left in profile
Google suggests that The Arnolfini portrait has a lot of parody versions so that fits with one of SheilaNaGig's suggested criteria.
Good thread. So many to chose from. I think it has to be instantly responsible? 3 quick offerings from me
Not many paintings can be said to start a whole art movement
Edit. NVM wrong painting lol
Is that Turner?
Mistook it for this
I meant to post this earlier and didn’t. So here it is.
It is, The ‘Fighting’ Temeraire.
I went to Amsterdam last year, my dad told me I needed to go to reichsmuseum and see the Vermeers. Yeah whatever I thought, but we went anyway, and jesus but he was right.
This is the best one anyway, and the world's greatest painting (although it fails the simpsons test)
This one too. Vermeer was the best.

Easy to 'shop her as posting on a phone though.
I know it's supposed to be a great painting but it does nothing for me. When I went to see it I was left with a strong sense of being almost let down by it. I'd heard for many years about how wonderful it is, and IMO it just isn't. Good, absolutely, great, no.
I used to look at it in art books when I was younger, and fully believed that the photos of it were just black and white because "costs".
It came as a massive disappointment to me to see that in reality it was monochrome.
I used to have a postcard of that next to a postcard of this around my desk at work. I love looking at them side by side
The more I think about it the more I think Vermeer has to be the creator of some of the all time great paintings.
this is a huge picture, the triumph of death. it's in palermo and it occupies a wall, and not a small wall at that. must be in the region of 6m x 6.5m
For my grandparents' generation this was 'proper art'
