“Narcissus” – Amerighi da Caravaggio, 1599

If you like this, [read a little about his life.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravaggio) >”He was notorious for brawling, even in a time and place when such behavior was commonplace, and the transcripts of his police records and trial proceedings fill several pages. On 29 May 1606, he

Martin in the Fields – William Longsdail

I enjoyed this so much I decided to look more into it than imgur It’s at the Tate [[link]](http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/logsdail-st-martin-in-the-fields-n01621). The actual title is St Martin-in-the-Fields by William Logsdail, not Longsdail

The Son of Man – René Magritte – 1964

Magritte said of this painting: “At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It’s something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides another thing, we always

“The Elephant Celebes” by Max Ernst (1921)

This reminds me of my Art History final…….that I hope I didn’t bomb. I do know a lot about this work though. Off the top of my head it’s a Surrealist work, from the early 1920s. It does comment on WW1 (and industrialization), which

“The Tragedy”, Pablo Picasso. 1903

Unsuccessful? Only among the most elite echelons of art criticism, and honestly, you’d be hard pressed to find many, if any, 22 year olds that would pass that grade. Never cared for the term unsuccessful in such an exceptionally subjective area as art appreciation.

Christ in the Desert, Ivan Kramskoi, 1872

This painting is awesome. Check out the really crazy rocks in the foreground–it’s like they have life unto themselves. Kramskoy painted them like this to emphasize Satan’s tempting of Christ to turn rocks into bread. Jesus thus envisions the rocks as having a life

Digital Artist Ray Caesar — Metatron, 2008

Apologies for the late response as I’ve been off reddit for a few days. I try my best not to leave someone’s question hangin’, but will be honest when saying that this is difficult to answer in that I’m finding a serious serious lack

Pascal Coste – Shah Mosque, 1841

Incredible. Western art history (at least in the early 1970’s) completely ignored the artistry of the Moors and Muslim world. Alhambra is the only great work I have viewed, and what a phenomenal work it is.

“The Titan’s Goblet” – Thomas Cole, 1833

This painting has long been associated with Germanic mythology, [as attested on its the Wikipedia page](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Titan%27s_Goblet). The subject is a twist on the Norse World Tree, and the style is highly remiscent of contemporary German Romantic painters (e.g. Caspar David Friedrich) A painting evoking

Man Warning Two Boys by David Blackwood

He is good, a minor (in recognition) Canadian artist, actually lives one small town over from me. His books are worth looking at if you can get your hands on one. If you are in Canada, your local library should have some.

René Magritte – The Empire of Light, II

And aside: As the OP, I can never tell how my submissions will be received. Usually the ones I like most get the lowest score, and the ones I’m only mildly pleased with get upvoted highest. Well, that’s life and no doubt the fact

Euan Uglow (1932 – 2000), “Beautiful girl lying down.”

it’s hair and/or shadows, ya bunch of hooligans! that aside, i really like this picture. reminds me of scarlett in *lost in translation*; that pose by her on the bed at the beginning of the movie is influenced by john kacere.
