A thread to "old masters" -- works you admire, etc. (I'll edit this first post later when I'm not busy and know what to put here)

Yeah I think it's probably better we let the paintings speak for themselves, honestly.  Posting paintings on their own is perfectly acceptable.









(should be obvious I particularly like the Pre-Raphs and the Realists)

I think my preferences are pretty obvious too :). Mostly human faces and mostly gestural I guess? Impressionists also give me a big hard-on.

How old do the masters I admire have to be to qualify? half asking so that answer can be the introducing text for the topic and half asking so that I dont feel bad about my likely ignorance about real real real real real masters :p.

Some titles or artist names would be nice for those of us not knowledgeable of the same stuff as the poster :p

eh, they should be dead, I suppose.  I'm not so sure what's going on in contemporary art, if anything is going on at all.  Realistically it would be anything associated with the likes of Picasso backwards, but I'm not too picky.  The main criteria is just so people don't post some genre digital painting of a dumb fantasy/sci-fi-whatever.  So, actual fine art is the only rule.

Sorry for not naming the artists.  I posted DG Rossetti, Mallais, Lepage, a Monet, a Caravaggio, a John Herbert, an El Greco, and (the link seems broken now) a Courbet.  Mallais is my current favorite, my favorite (posted) of his is Christ in the House of his Parents, which is fitting to my taste of Welles as a director, Ibsen as a dramatist, Hart Crane as a poet, and Joyce/Hawthorne as novelists.  All adds up to a strong longing for humanism.

AIGHT THEN  :D
Dali's Hallucinogenic Toreador


Impression, soleil levant by Monet
I still wonder if this one has the right colors =/

Earth by Arcimboldo


a few Jacek  Malczewski 




I'm still going for fantastic stuff but these are fine art :p. I almost posted some zdzislaw Beksiski but that's one step away from Giger which is just concept art, and then it just becomes a conceptart thread
