It’s actually from the upper left corner of the left panel in “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” as seen [here](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f7/Hieronymus_Bosch_-_The_Garden_of_Earthly_Delights_-_The_Earthly_Paradise_%28Garden_of_Eden%29.jpg).
Ah, are you not familiar with Francis Bacon? You are in for a treat, my friend. Post-war anglo-irish painter who was renowned for his biomorphic abstractions and depictions of human anguish / extistential torment. A legendary bon vivant, he lived a very interesting and
The gallery label at [MoMA](http://www.moma.org/collection/object.php?object_id=79204): “Created in the immediate aftermath of World War II, *Painting* is an oblique but damning image of an anonymous public figure. Half-obscured by an umbrella, he is dressed in a dark formal suit—the unofficial uniform of British politicians of
Would it be alright if a post more from the same alley in separate posts? There were several other great pieces, though it feels weird chopping it up.
I’m surprised this painting hasn’t been used as a meme yet. DIED TO SAVE EVERYONE’S SOUL NAME COMMONLY USED AS AN EXPLETIVE
This is an ad, not street art per se. While it is technically similar enough, most street art/graffiti people wouldn’t classify anything advertising a large brand like this as legitimate. Small company ads (local businesses etc) employing street artists/graffiti artists is fine but anything
[More of his works.](http://imgur.com/a/vdLZg/layout/blog) This guy has profound ideas. And he’s an amazing painter.
Such a genius. Interesting bit of trivia: Marc was meant to be removed from combat in WWI because of his status as a notable artist. Unfortunately, he was struck and killed by a shell splinter before the order reached him. One can only wonder
There were quite a few cars coming in and out so I had to hurry my picture, so apologies if this isn’t that great. I did manage to find a separate source with a better picture too!

That symbol on the bottom seems mystical, sick art!
How do you think he painted the far trees like that? They look great don’t they? As far as I can make out it looks like just a grey smudge with the thicker limbs inked in in black over the top, really simple. But
I love how crisp pasties are! I just wish they would last longer.
The title of this painting is *Fishermen at Sea*. [Here’s a larger version](http://www.tate.org.uk/art/images/work/T/T01/T01585_10.jpg) from the Tate’s website. This is the first oil painting that Turner exhibited at the Royal Academy, in 1796.
I’ve always loved this piece – not because of the content or the artists ability but because my grandparents had a print of this piece in their house. It always reminds me of a simpler time when I was younger and would spend time
This is just up the coast from me. It was highly controversial and has been graffitied a lot. I think that much of the controvery is due to its positioning – on the beach at Britten’s beloved Aldeburgh – rather than the design though.
Not the most dazzling rendition of street art but it is a thoughtful quote and I can see how it could be inspirational. Art is in the eye of the beholder after all.
Damn cool graffiti, pretty cool contrast to the bleach white walls to the left.
