Art (paintings) is another medium that I don't know shit about but would like to explore. Help me figure out some essential artists or just post some paintings that you love.

Check out Pushwagner, one of Norway's foremost living artists and quite the work of art himself.

Here's one of his most famous works, Jobkill:

I think Vermeer is essential and this site seems to think so as well. http://www.essentialvermeer.com/

I must say I'm a layman as far as painting is concerned, but I do prefer classical painting, e.g. mostly Dutch/Flemish, Italian Renaissance and post-Impressionist periods.
Here are some examples:

Also, I cannot ommit Antonio Gaudi, I'm a big fan, he's clearly more known as an architect rather than a painter, but he's done some painting as well and I believe his work transcends specific genres.

Saw this one in the Prado back in Januari, I kind of lost track of time standing before that and I even went back again the same week.

The Goya-room is what stuck out about the Prado in my head as well. The Black Paintings were just dripping with all kinds of crazed creepiness!

I started to think there wasn't a topic about painting. Have you guys heard about Leonardo Da Vinci painting "Salvator Mundi" aka The Male Mona Lisa being sold for $450M, breaking the record for highest price achieved by a painting in an auction?

Here's a Daily Mail article about it. It's worth a read, the history of the painting is quite interesting.

Another fave going back through the folds of time quite a lot further. Portrait of a Lady and a Young Girl by Adriaen van Cronenburg. If you really want to go even higher res look it up on the Prado website, it's so beautiful to look at.

Gonna carry on until someone stops me hehe. tehe This is an engraving by Albrecht Durer from the late 15th century. These would have been multiples, i.e. he used the engraving and made prints from it. The first ones to come off the press look a lot better as the detail from the engraving hasn't worn away. Our queen here in the UK has this one, which is quite an early print. It's "The Prodigal Son" from the Bible. The prodigal son goes abroad and initially wastes a load of daddy's dough, when time's get hard he then takes a job as a swineherd. You don't have to take the Bible's context though, it's just a cool pensive scene.

I wouldn't necessarily say that Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) is my favorite artist, but he's certainly my favorite artist that remains relatively obscure. He's probably best known as the writer of the "Gormenghast" books and they may well be his signal achievement, but he was an excellent poet, draughtsman (illustrating a couple dozen of his own and others' works) and painter as well -

His best-known painting, The Glass Blowers:

Image

Self-portrait:

Image

Maeve in Blue (Maeve was his wife):

Image

not sure what this is from; likely a book illustration:

Image

his cover for Titus Groan, first in the Gormengast sequence:

You could translate it a few ways. "As we are born we begin to die", e.g. combo of NASCENDO on one side and MORIMVR on the other (Latin V is like our U). Or more simply "We are born, we die". You could take the view that you live moments more intensely when you insert an understanding of death into them. I feel an intense amount of love between the mother and daughter in the painting. (Though we actually have no idea who these two are and their relationship).

Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

The movie The last family (Ostatnia rodzina), which I watched last week, is the biography of a polish painter, Zdzislaw Beksinski. I didn't know anything about him or his work, and I must admit I find both fascinating...
