Top 1000 Art Pictures

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, The Source

I think body hair was against the law back then, so everybody shaved whether you were a model or not. It would be amusing if the model had a really big bush, as some women do. More realism, less idealism. That’s why I like

Edvard Munch, The Dance of Life, 1899-1900

The background elements are worth pondering as they appear to develop a narrative of courtship, lust, and, I think, death. Reading from left to right: First is the virginal white figure with the flower next to her, all purity and youth. Between her and

Octavio Ocampo, Visions of Quixote

I believe it’s called metamorphic style – a technique of superimposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details within the images that he creates.[Wiki](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octavio_Ocampo)

Edward Hopper – Boy and Moon

I’m really surprised this isn’t as iconic as *Nighthawks*. It has the same level of intrigue with as minimal as five or so colors. I think we can see some heavy influence from *Son of Man*. The way Magriette was able to place the

Bruce Pennington – Beyond This Horizon (1942ish)

Googled “1940s science fiction art” [was not disappointed.](https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&authuser=0&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1121&bih=625&q=1940s+science+fiction+art&oq=1940s+science+fiction+art&gs_l=img.3…2452.8390.0.8590.15.9.0.6.6.0.211.840.6j2j1.9.0…0.0…1ac.1.12.img.o33t1eDLjQg#imgrc=iNrfUtxs_cN3JM%3A%3BVluOpZdpf6ExNM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252F1.bp.blogspot.com%252F_uwgefwgTLwc%252FSWaH_UVvkLI%252FAAAAAAAACcs%252F52dVFiumk-Y%252Fs400%252Fh.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fchloevanparis.blogspot.com%252F2009%252F01%252Fpulp-art-earle-bergey.html%3B321%3B400)

Leif Podhajsky — ‘Transmorphism’ Collection

A little bit surprised that this artist has not been submitted before so I’m taking advantage of the oppurtunity. I am utterly infatuated with this guy. An Australian graphic designer who I became aware of when I started seeing his stuff popping up on

Rob Gonsalves, Chess Master

I was not able to find a higher res pic, but there are other great paintings by this same artist that you might enjoy (high res): [The Phenomenon of floating](http://imgur.com/GJUsCvr), [Astral Projection](http://i.imgur.com/pNFGcRA.jpg), [High Park Pickets](http://imgur.com/uNcfMR7) …

By Kay Nielsen, an early Disney illustrator

I have a friend whose graduate school work is pretty much all early 20th century animation. I still know nothing about that time, but she has posted millions of stills from every director/illustrator from that time. This is the first time I’ve seen Ms.

Tree Shadows on the Park Wall, Roundhay Park, Leeds by John Atkinson Grimshaw (1872)

Always nice to see my (and Atkinson Grimshaw’s) home city on Reddit. [Here is another.](http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/04/18/article-1378068-0BAE2A4F00000578-353_634x445.jpg) [And here’s the same place now.](https:[email protected],-1.5425122,3a,75y,271.69h,97.7t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s1KVhRE05wGuTEImlvEPrGw!2e0)

Untitled by Jacek Yerka

..I don’t think it’s uninspired, perhaps a tad cliched. I like the attention to detail. I see a church, old, ruined, outdated, being eroded by the sea and desert, the lone candle burning low, about to be extinguished either by the water, or simply
