If you like Richard Long, Hamish Fulton is well worth checking out.
It's a fasntastic picture, one of my favourites of all time.
It's not quite art as such (or is it?!), but I do love this Gillray cartoon from 1793 showing how 'John Bull' would deal with a French invasion. I love eighteenth-century caricatures: a lot of them are so scurrilous.
Turner still rocks above anyone else for me. Not my favourite necessarily, but a good example.
I met the son of an artist named Ken Kiff a few years ago. Met the artists very good friend also and subsequently took an interest in his work. Ken Kiff... a colourist.
Most of his stuff is much brighter, but I like this.
Odelon Redon is one of many favourite artists.
I also love Kandinsky, "Cossacks" i'm particularly fond of
Dali, because is proper mental
Ivan shopov, not amazingly well know, but I love his drawings...... I have this on a tshirt
Tom hunter has always been a fave of mine
I have a favourite miro. I'll just pop down stairs to find out which one.
Photographers. Thomas Struth. However, fine art photographs need to be experienced in the flesh as much as paintings do, but people seem to expect photographs to work on the web. Much information is missing here. You have to see well produced prints.
Sorry and that but he looks like he's having a poo
I've stood in that exact spot pretty much.
He might well be, with Goliath staring down at him!
^what's that then?
chilango walks on water!!!
I have a print of it that ms starfish bought me on a visit to one of them big museum places in London years ago. Just need a decent frame again to put it on our wall.
Talking of on our walls. I have this. Its by Hedley Fitton & is an etching of the little market in Vincenzia. Its an original signed print. It used to belong to an aunt of my mums & i always wanted it.
I too liked "Piss Christ", but mostly because it induced apoplectic rage in Jesse Helms.
Opening of the Vth seal - Δομήνικος Θεοτοκόπουλος
I can't believe how many centuries ahead of its time that it appears to modern eyes
yeah, that one is incredible.
I just saw it for the 1st time the other week. I don't really know enough about art history to say how much of an outlier it is..
but it just seems to relaxed in its style. confident
I've seen that one now, Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
I knew the artist.
