I used to love Andrew Wyeth's paintings when I was a kid, but now I see how pedestrian they are, although they are well-executed. I'm drawn to the messiness and visceral pull of Basquiat's paintings, although i couldn't single one out as my favourite.

It's hard to choose just one. But the first time I saw Van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night OnThe Rhine, it brought tears ro my eyes.

I saw it as I turned into a long corridor at the museum. It was way at the other end. It caught my attention immediately, and everything else went into soft focus. It seemed to be twinkling and beckoning. As I got closer and saw how the brush strokes had been applied to create this magical effect, I almost lost it. ..

Every time I hear the song "Vincent" I am brought back to that moment. It will be a feel-good memory for me, for the rest of my life.

I love the paintings of Thomas Hart Benton. He had an interesting technique. He would first make clay models of the figures or landscapes, then use a single light source and paint from that. Everything has the very fluid sort of look. Very imaginative, very colorful, VERY American.

R2 I remember the first time I saw Starry Night. I was in the gallery where it hung, looking at other paintings when I noticed a crowd of people all gathered in one place. I went over and peeked over their shoulders to see what they were looking at, and there it was. I didnt even know it was at MOMA! The surprise along with the realization that I was actually looking at one of the most famous paintings in the western canon really blew me away.

I could never pick a favourite painting, nor could I pick a favourite song. It changes all the time, based on my mood. I'm a painter, and I'm often amused when people tell me what their favourite painting of mine is. Sometimes, it's one I thought I should trash instead of showing anyone. I'm glad everyone has different taste; otherwise, there'd be just one painting in the world, and we'd all agree it was the best and only one we needed.

Turner did several paintings titled "The Rape of Europa," at least three of which are described as "unfinished." I believe that that's a mistake. They all seem like precursors to his stupendous late paintings, where he abandons any pretense of subject matter, apart from air and light. One of those is my favorite. Which one varies from moment to moment. In more than 150 years since his death, nothing more modern has been painted.

Re: Rothko. One of my most memorable gallery experiences was at Tate Modern, London. The Seagram Murals had been assembled, along with, as I recall, other late works.

Their power was unique - I've never felt so awed in a gallery before or since. Their mass and solemnity seemed to coerce viewers into silence.

The paintings were compelling: austere, mysterious, commanding, but somehow deeply humane. Unforgettable.

Otto Dix's portraits smack of personal commentary and wonderful pointed anti nazi messages. Hitler hated him and the article the other day in the NYTimes about him tells a little of this 20th century German portraitist. Pic to follow...

Beautiful Otto Dix portraits at link.

by Anonymousreply 6611/07/2013

R65, no question of Dix's importance, and his faces were often extraordinary and even devastating, but do you really think that he was principally a portraitist? It seemed to me that those wonderfully executed faces were a means of characterizing the society that he was depicting, rather than the individuals, which is what I'd expect in a portrait. "Portrait" generally connotes a single subject or group of subjects whose likeness is the point of the painting, rather than a figure or group of figures included in a painting that is not primarily about any of them.

Can't believe nobody has yet mentioned "Boys in a Pasture," Winslow Homer - probably the one painting I would save in a nuclear war. Obviously, when I went to the Boston Museum of Art to see it, it was on loan to another museum. Rolling my eyes.

Also Jean-leon Gerome's "Recto Verso" (Thumbs Down) in the Phoenix Museum of Art - just lovely and lusty. I like him as an artist - he'd be on my short list.

Goya, of course - any of his macabre paintings are masterful, very Rembrandt-like.

When I was a student in Boston, I went to the Gardiner, knowing very little about art, and with little interest, frankly. I wandered from room to room until I saw this painting -- The Rape of Europa by Titian -- and could not stop looking at it. The composition, the color, the sheer beauty and drama of it all -- I was flummoxed by the whole experience of that painting. I go back every time I'm in Boston and still feel the power of it.

I am going to DC Sunday to see the Van Gogh exhibit. 30 years ago we saw the almost complete Van Gogh exhibit at the Smithsonian. The only well known painting we did not see was a "Sunflowers" that was in Japan at the time. We had the galleries entirely to ourselves. The only protected painting was "Self portrait", the one with one ear. We walked right up to Starry night, Olive Trees, San Remy....The Master had a quarter inch of paint in one brushstroke, bare canvas peeking though in another. We were so close we saw the master's brush hairs stuck in the paint. The most beautiful things I have ever seen. Starry night is my favorite. I look forward to seeing "The Postman", a painting of his drinking buddy which is featured at the Phillips collection.

R3, Benton is one of those painters where seeing the work in person makes all the difference. Prints don't do any painter justice, but it's really pronounced with him. In "Romance", the glow of the moonlight on the figures is really beautiful, but it doesn't show up in prints at all.

Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People is really amazing in person.

R3 I had sex in his house, no lie. This ancient old man gave myself and the bf a guided tour through Benton's house in Kansas City.

I love Sargent's portraits! So lusciously beautiful, yet cruelly incisive. Some of the portraits reveal incredible anger, self-absorption, idiocy, or insecurity. Or sadness, as in this sketch of Princess Alexandra.

R37 and R111 - yes, I've seen his works before, very talented, and lovely nudes.

However, if there's a reason why he's not more talked about, it has to do with how taboos change, sometimes counter-intuitively. By that I mean, in the 19th Century, I guess these types of paintings were viewed innocently, just males playing nude, as how perhaps people would do in paradise, naturally and nude. And there is nothing vulgar about the paintings from what I see - they are painted honestly.

Meanwhile, in today's era, in light of the pedophilia scandals in the RCC and in some sports institutions, most people are hypersensitive about even the perception of being predatory and exploitive; thus, there probably won't be much discussion about it here, even though he was unquestionably one of the most talented gay artists.

So much of Peter Paul Reubens, "Judgment of Paris" Yeah he paints Fat, but it is a fine alternative to Bible stories.

Visited the Alte Pinakothekuld Museum in Munich, there was the most cavernous gallery I have ever seen of BIG scale Rubens!! Just goddamn HUGE room of these massive canvases, each one more stunning & mesmerizing than the last. Between jaw dropping spectacular paintings, I mused just how much of this art work was stolen by the Nazi's. I guessed most of it. It really was something to behold.

Another one for Starry night.

R144, here is one of my favorites from the Alte Pinakothek, genius Albrecht Durer's autoportrait. A bunch of fraus prevented me from getting close as they were having their art appreciation class and were forming a semi circle around it. But I'll be back in April and watch out if they're still there.

Another jaw dropping moment on my last visit to Munich was at the new Brandhorst museum (displaying one man's collection of modern art, including dozens of Cy Twombly). Here is one of two large rooms devoted to Twombly, showing only a portion of the room.

by Anonymousreply 14911/11/2013

The thing about artists like Twombley and Rothko is that their paintings rely so much on their large size to create a presence. If they were smaller paintings, would they have as much power? Would they be good paintings?!? I like their art, but I'm not sure they're great. Or, perhaps their greatness is that they thought to think on a large scale?

I was really awestruck by Edouard Manet's "The Bar at the Folies Bergere" when I saw it in person. This crappy image at the link doesn't do it justice at all. You really feel as though you just stepped up to the bar and this poor unfortunate girl asked you what you'd like to have. I guess that would be Manet himself in the reflection on the right.

by Anonymousreply 15111/13/2013

I'm sorry, but I think of Rothko's work as examples of design or craft, more than true artistic genius. Come on. Really? It's almost as bad as saying "I love Ellsworth Kelly!"

I've really been getting into Contemporary art recently - not to be confused with abstract or modern art. There is a whole school of American Contemporary Realists who have an at-times photographic quality to their work, but really are quite expressive and even surreal. The detail can be amazing. And exquisitely beautiful.

Here's a new favorite of mine. If you're a NYC DL'er, check out his solo show which opens tomorrow at Arcadia Contemporary.

This guy is amazing

The thread would be infinitely more interesting if people posted photos of their own collections. Then we can really rip them to shreds!

I'll even help by starting off: here's one corner of the living room from where I'm sitting now. The painting directly ahead with the men bathing is Forest Pool. So now you can demolish me. I just noticed there's magazines stacked one of the chairs, so it should be easy!!!

No way, R338.

The National Gallery's Supper at Emmaus is extraordinary. You feel the spiritual power of Christ revealing who he is to the disciples. It captures the moment in a way no other painting of the same scene does.

by Anonymousreply 34201/26/2015

I'm sorry but there are so many shitty picks in here. I'm looking at the paintings and getting no emotional or artistic power. The National Gallery Supper at Emmaus is a really special painting. So is Leonardo's Virgin of the Rocks there, and Ruben's Samson and Delilah, and The Hay Wain by Constable, and Turner's The Fighting Temeraire. It's definitely one of the most important museums for Western painting.

We should have a topic where we post best works of each artist. I'm really interested in what people consider to be the best (or most underrated) Leonardo or Vermeer or Caravaggio or Rubens or Rembrandt or Van Gogh or Manet or Monet even etc. etc.

R422 - I agree. I don't know if Bonnat was gay or not (he never married), but his male figures are beautiful and homoerotic. This drawing for instance, Jacob Wrestling the Angel, (1876), which was a study before his painting, Jacob Earns His Name.

Gustave Caillebotte also sets off my gaydar, and not just for the beautiful picture of the male bather drying off posted earlier. His dearest friend was journalist Richard Gallo, who appeared in Caillebottes pictures more than anybody else. Caillebotte and Gallo never married.

(This is a lousy photograph of a very beautiful picture in the Caillebotte show in Washington now)

St. Sebastian by Gerrit van Honthorst in the National Gallery, London

by Anonymousreply 43709/08/2015

R436, I like it, too

The Figure 5 in Gold is one of a series of eight abstract portraits of friends that Demuth made between 1924 and 1929, which were exhibited at Alfred Stieglitz's gallery 291. This particular painting pays homage to a poem by William Carlos Williams. Like Marsden Hartley's painting Portrait of a German Officer (49.70.42) and Arthur Dove's assemblage Portrait of Ralph Dusenberry (49.70.36), as well as Gertrude Stein's word-portraits, this portrait consists of not a physical likeness of the artist's friend but an accumulation of images associated with him—the poet's initials and the names "Bill" and "Carlos" that together form a portrait. Williams' poem "The Great Figure" describes the experience of seeing a red fire engine with the number 5 painted on it racing through the city streets. While Demuth's painting is not an exact illustration of the poem, we can certainly sense its "rain/and lights" and the "gong clangs/siren howls/and wheels rumbling."
