Post paintings you like, without regard to the era or art movement.

Here's a poor picture of a futurist painting. Benedetta, Velocity of a Motorboat.

As an avid motorboater, I quite liked it when I visited a futurist art expo recently.

Would this have to be have to be something we've seen live? Smile

Besides the "usual suspects", there's a painting called "Birth of Stones" on exhibit at the Ateneum which greatly impressed me. Googling it will yield an image smaller than a postage stamp.

This year it will be 150 years since Helene Sjerfbeck's birth, I'm looking forward to the exhibition at Ateneum. thumbs up

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

"Christ of Saint John of the Cross" by Salvador Dalí in 1951.

[Image: Christ_of_Saint_John_of_the_Cross.jpg]

The absence of wounds, the soft light in contrast with a dark background, the steep angle, all the details transmit a sense of tranquility to me. I don't know, I just like this painting very much.

Not exactly world-famous or especially great art, but these works by Zdislaw Beksinski really made an impact on me:

Omg yeees. Smile I love that movement Smile

Especially Natalia Goncharova:

[Image: 3982.jpg]

Here she is, painted by her husband, Mikhail Larionov

She did many things, like designing backdrops for the ballet:

And lots of nice paintings Smile (in semi chronological orderSmile

And illustrations:

She's lesser known than many of the other artists in the movement, maybe overshadowed by her husband, but honestly, I like her work far better than Larionov's.
