    Dali is my favorite artist too. I don't know how to post images yet but if I did I would do my favs.
    The Meditative Rose,
    The Elephants.
    The Eye.
    The Burning Giraffe.
    Telephone in a Dish With Three Grilled Sardines at the End of September

    His Narcissus is my favorite, I think he portrays the concept more accurately than any other artist I've seen except one: this guy named Crawfurd Adamson, whose work I saw in some tiny, obscure gallery in Portland, OR. Unfortunately his Narcissus painting isn't online, but his other stuff is:

    Crawfurd Adamson

    The only one that, IMO, really stacks up to his Narcissus is this:



    The impression is much stronger in person, but with the real thing you get the impression that this guy is just ready to leap off the canvas. Like nothing I've ever seen. Most of his work is unremarkable, IMO, but he has a few gems.

    One of my favorites: Digital art; top row, middle column.

    Also the one in Jess's avatar is fucking brilliant, as are the first three columns of Paintings: Gallery 1 (except maybe the bottom left one; the others all stand out, that one is ok).

    I have a link to about 400 of his paintings that's just mindblowing but for some reason I can't seem to link it here. The ones on the official website are good but these are much better quality..sucks I can't share it. My dream in life is to own everything he's ever done but apparently people don't think highly enough of him to make some decent prints.

    Adolph Hitler



    Here we see a caring German mother clutching a golden haired baby, the future stock of the proud Aryan race. In reality, this is a metaphor for Hitler's hidden desire to connect to a maternal figure he never knew.




    Here we see the failure of Germany's education system evoked by the school's empty courtyard. In reality, what we're observing is the tragic loneliness inside the Fuhrer's heart as he recollects on his youth.






    What could be more frightening than watching as your zeitgeist is shaped by bourgeois ideals of placid comfort and normality? Note the sad tones and the disagreeable air of conventionality, the chair is slightly out of order.

    This painting speaks to the demon inside all of us, the desire to break out of the pedestrian simplicity of everyday life and let one's boiling rage erupt in a frenzy of chaos and munificent destruction, culminating in its mass consolidation as the vanguard of a new existential ideal.




    The young boy Adolph with his pants down, masturbating alone on a bridge.
    Capitalism is the belief that the rich don't work hard when they don't earn enough, and that the poor don't work hard when they earn too much.

    I've never really paid attention to visual art in the past, but I know that I love Albert Bierstadt.

    Bit of a thread revival, I suppose, but fuck it

    I just needed to share my love for good old Caravaggio.

    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I posted this one once, then realized that I had forgotten to add tears of blood.

    My favorite class in college was Art History. I recommend it for everyone. You get history, religion, sociology, design, art, and politics all in one class.

    And the textbook has pictures!

    I love the stuff Starfall posted.

    My favorite is probably Kandinsky. One of my favorite paintings is below; it's by James Ensor.

    this Korean artist caught my eye recently - Minjae Lee Greno - some of her drawings are an intriguing mixture of defiance and nihilism











    @Starfall interesting how the art you've posted here resemble the pictures that lungs has posted back in her iei typing thread, with the bodies being picked apart, made me wonder if this is sp/sx related.

    This might have been the most beautiful site I've ever ventured. They have done a very good job at making those pictures hard to copy. It's still bad for business.

    My first name derives from Hieronymus after Hieronomys Bosch, a 15th century Dutch Painter.

    His most known work would be The Garden of Earthly Delights.
     
    If you open it in a tab, it's easy to zoom in. There are a lots somewhat surrealist details.
