Top 1000 Art Pictures

Pull, by Dragan Bibin

Beautiful. >Once I woke up in the middle of the night, got up and took the white shirt that hanged over my chair. As I did so, I realized that the left sleeve is very long, so I began to pull it. It was

Alfons Mucha, The seasons

100% agreed. I have several of his prints around the house (I adore art nouveau). My fav is F. Champenois Imprimeur-Éditeur. IMHO he was the epitome of the art nouveau movement.

Lincoln’s Portrait Full Color

This is a wonderful picture. My, Abe was a bit of a rugged looking man. Does…does anyone else think he had a MASSIVE HEAD? Either way, this is awesome and I’m glad you posted it.

Jan Veth – Portrait of Albert Verwey

That nose has some real three-dimensionality to it. It really pops out of the painting. Anyway, incredible stuff, thanks for sharing. A very dark scene, but still with quite a surprising amount of luminosity to it, almost looks more real than a real person

Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry Murals – South Wall (c. 1933)

Awesome. Is the building that’s on considered art deco? EDIT: These murals reminded me of something, and I couldn’t immediately figure out what, but I decided it’s the [Coit Tower Murals,]( which are [also very cool.](

Michelangelo (1475 – 1564) – Pietà

Man, seeing things like this and knowing that they were carved from stone with hand tools over the course of months or even years is just staggering. I can’t even carve a proper derby car from a block of wood with an array of

Constantin Brancusi – “The Sleeping Muse” (1910)

Agreed. We looked at some of his work in an art history survey I took in school. His work is very minimal, some of it almost feels ancient ([The Kiss]( for example) or otherworldly (such as [Bird in Space](

Pieter Bruegel the Elder | The Hunters in the Snow

yes, Bruegel’s place in the timeline is rather interesting. His technique and his palette were ahead of their time… the anthropological quality of his work is rather unique for his era. He and Hieronymus Bosch (a bit earlier) make an interesting pair to study

Hole, by Chris Trueman (2011)

I’ve been looking through more of his pieces. The best way I’ve been able to understand pieces like this that are very abstract is to think of them more as feelings, but I don’t know that’s what he’s doing here. Other pieces he does

John William Waterhouse, The Danaides

Jane Morris, William Morris’s wife, modelled for a huge number of the pre-raphaelites paintings. She is the woman from which the icon pre-raphaelite ‘look’ comes from: masculine jaw line, heavy lidded eyes, red hair, white skin, strong nose. I have always assumed that

Sir Edward John Poynter, Cave of the Storm Nymphs,

Am I the only one who finds this incredibly gaudy and verging on tacky? Paintings like this and others from the Royal Academy and descendants of Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the 1890s and 1900s basically necessitated innovation in English painting come the

Kosovo’s Vacant Billboards are Unintentional Masterpieces

I’m talking about appreciated AS art, not a comfy road. for instance — this blog captures botched google books scans that have turned out beautifully. Are these not art? What about these: What about when a toddler finger-paints something that is sophisticated
