I find this mesmerising, and could look at it forever. I imagine it would be something I would never tire of.

He has always been one of my most favorite artists. I have a bunch of his work set as my desktop backgrounds and honestly, I could get lost just looking at a digital copy of his work. I’d most definitely cry if I was
I love how much Russian/Eastern European art comes up on this subreddit. There are some real unappreciated superstars. High school art only ever dealt with the big West European and US names, and I haven’t seen anything Eastern European in the galleries in Australia.
Yes! This is a Japanese woodblock print. Hiroshige and Hasui were both Japanese woodblock print artists. That being said they operated at different times and in completely different cultures (although, stylistically, there are some similarities – Hasui was obviously influenced by Hiroshige). [Hiroshige](http://ukiyo-e.org/artist/utagawa-hiroshige) produced
[The Philosophy of Aesthetics](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesthetics) Plato’s perspective comes from his understanding of the world that everything comes from a perfect idea of that something. So for him making art is an attempt to make the perfect piece of art. It is an attempt to distill
This has been my desktop wallpaper for a few years now. I love it! Part of the painting [is missing](http://i.imgur.com/1Rw8XIX.jpg) though.
The association of these two disparate concepts is cool and interesting. Everything else about the execution of this piece is generic and lazy.
That is absolutely beautiful. Is that some of his earlier work? I can’t help but notice the lack of gold leaf
I was lucky enough to go to the private view for Jenny Saville’s [current solo exhibition] (http://www.modernartoxford.org.uk/whats-on/jenny-saville/about/) at Modern Art Oxford. This piece was one of my favourites.
Sadko was a merchant and he was traveling the sea after a trade. There was a storm so he gave “bribe” to Poseidon with gold and pearls. But that wasn’t enough and Poseidon wanted a human sacrifice. The crew of the ship pulled a
Checked out the collection you linked in the comments… great images! I have to read up on the artist now, very unusual art.
It appears to just be acquired curio and shiny stuff that the person, possibly the girl, or her parents, collected there. There isn’t a coherent, intrinsic meaning connecting each of the objects, but the sheer volume and variation of the objects implies that this

Oh man. To be fair, it was pretty late in my country when I uploaded this, and I meant to change the title before submitting it. Seems like I forgot. ^This ^is ^not ^even ^the ^first ^time ^this ^happens
Thank you both for being vocal about your enjoyment of my posts, it encourages me to keep on posting! 🙂 As to where I find the art pieces; I basically just look on lots of different blogs, forums and websites on the internet –
The concentric crystalline spheres that carry the sun (your holy-gyroscope-thing), the moon and the heavenly bodies that move around the center of the universe, the earth, propelled by the power of god in the form of invisible angels. Sarah Palin-types still invest in this
A Tarantino-style crime movie set in 1800s Russia could be quite interesting.
This is really neat. It reminded me of the evoloution of [peppered moth](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppered_moth_evolution) coloration with the white walls and black moths.
Good call. I posted the title because of what I learned in my AP Art History class, but I can’t find any articles to confirm or deny either presumption. I’ll definitely have to ask someone the next time I’m at the Nelson and repost,
I love Hopper. He’s one of my favorite painters of all time. But I do not enjoy his people at all. I wish this painting was just the bed. He’s so great at capturing light and architecture (non living objects) but I don’t think
There’s a fun anecdote (most likely apocryphal) about an art critic interviewing Edward Hopper. The conversation inevitably veered to Nighthawks, and the critic pulled out a print of the work. The critic then asked Hopper, “Mr. Hopper, I’ve always been dying to ask you
> **Bistro** is about two women hanging out, eating Ketchup and enjoying the breeze… Or is it? > > Actually, if you focus in on the two figures you’ll see that the one facing away could be a very masculine woman or just a
Points to consider: – As an artist myself, this artwork is important to me because it made me consider the use of grays as a legitimate color instead of a “dull” color. Note how he paints the shadow under his hairline gray. Also note
I love Hopper. With a good print you can study subtleties of the light for quite a long time. He also used pattern repetition in interesting ways.
