What's your favorite artwork of each type of art?

#1

Post by mjf314 »

What's your favorite artwork of each type of art? (e.g. architecture, dance, film, literature, music, painting, photography, sculpture, theatre, video games, etc)

In other words: What's your favorite film, favorite book, favorite song, etc?

Feel free to be as general or specific as you want. For example, you can have 1 entry for "literature" or you can separate it into multiple categories. Whatever makes sense to you.

If you can't pick 1 favorite, you can post a top 5 or top 10 or whatever.

Ah! Maybe I didn't pay enough attention.

Mh I don't feel like doing that now. :D
I'm interested in what will come up as "etc" for types of art.

I guess I'll go first.

Favorite films
I don't have a single favorite, so I'll give a top 5: Birds, Orphans and Fools, Death by Hanging, Green Snake, Spirited Away, The Human Condition

Favorite TV show
Mushishi

Favorite painting / favorite sculpture
A difficult question to answer. I've been to art museums all over New York and I've seen a lot of good paintings and sculptures. Unfortunately I never kept track of my favorites, so I don't remember what they are. My favorite is probably something from the Chelsea art galleries, but nothing specific comes to mind. I tend to like paintings that are beautiful, detailed, and surreal. I tend to like sculptures that use a variety of materials.

Favorite music
Beethoven's 9th Symphony

Favorite music (excluding classical)
Probably a film soundtrack. Maybe Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, but I'm probably forgetting some others that I like. It's hard to remember if I liked the music in a film.

Favorite video game
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Favorite manga (and favorite book)
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

Favorite book (excluding manga)
The Wizard of Oz (one of the few books that I actually finished reading)

I guess that's about all. I don't really have a favorite architecture, dance, photograph, or play.

I approve.
ICM
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Painting: Paul Klee

Music: that's really hard to have ONE true favourite. I'll say the whole album of Schubert's Winterreise interpreted by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. And to name one obscure thing: "Stay on It" by the gay Afro-American and dead in extreme poverty Julius Eastman

Book: Un homme qui dort, by Georges Perec (yeah, the one that inspired the movie by Queysanne)

Photography: my taste for photography is rather new, but I like Eugène Atget, and Vivian Maier.

architecture - not something I focus on when it comes to artistic things, but sometimes I do see nice things... can't name a name from the top of my head

dance - this is important to me, have seen a lot of William Forsythe's work, also have some interest in butoh but not enough to single out a name there. When it comes to filmed dance I love "slightly sinful"... I even put a rip from my VHS recording of that on youtube years back:

film - Satantango by Bela Tarr

literature:
poetry - The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot
fiction - there are various important things... Duras as a person and for all of her work is very important, but I'm going to single out Crash by Ballard.
philosophy - Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Wittgenstein... a singular piece of art
the graphic novel / comic / "stripboek" - biggest name for me is Comes. He developed a very peculiar high contrast style... like Frank Miller, but totally different. In the Dutch translations I love "Iris" and "de Heer der Duisternis" most, but all of it is amazing!
Other names are too many to mention, but for the world of manga I will single out "Blame!" and from the comics in the USA some works in the Grendel universe... especially Grendel Tales: Devils and Deaths (which has a strong European flavor to it... I think the makers also put some experience of the war in Yugoslavia into this work).

music:
song: Radiohead - Pyramid Song
album: too difficult to single out.... maybe Ys by Joanna Newsom if asked at gunpoint

painting - so many painters are very important to me! When confronted with their works "live" in a museum I have been most impressed by works from Turner (twice, in London and in Lissabon) and by Rothko (a very memorable exhibition in Den Haag), I do also love Egon Schiele, many a symbolist painter and Zdzisław Beksiński... again if I need to pick only one... Turner

photography - the only book by a photographer I have bought is one by Joel-Peter Witkin... but I'm not sure if I actually love his work :) it is impressive for sure. Steichen is another one I have liked, but like architecture this is not a field I pay much attention too... strange maybe when it seems so close to cinema...

sculpture - I am always impressed by marble work when I see it in a museum, especially when it gets delicate and spiritual, but I do that so seldom that I don't remember the names... I like sculpture too when it gets modern and towards installation art (light sculpture, landscape art maybe)... but again I won't pretend to name names here in any meanigful way

fashion - Alexander McQueen
cooking - I have to say the world of fashion is already slightly alien to me, but at least there is the visual impression of it, with food I am afraid that the best and most celebrated is unaccesible for me :( ... the ultimate in food art I have personally experienced is therefor limited to single malt Whisky... Talisker is my general favorite there. I have been mightily impressed with the Bunnahabhain 18 in the past (but liked it less when it came back in a new style...) and the single most special one I have owned is the Craigduff 1973 (aged 32 years). Not only a rare one, expensive one and peculiar one, but the taste was phenomenal too!!

theatre - I have seen Halina Reijn perform Hedda Gabler two times now, so impressed was I (by her specifically) the first time round, so that has to be the one to name here. This is a work directed by Ivo van Hove with Toneelgroep Amsterdam (called ITA these days). He currently has an exhibition in EYE on the area where film and cinema meet coincidentally!! As he has also adapted works by Antonioni, Duras and others for the stage.

when it comes to other forms of stage art... Dance we've mentioned, then there is comedy. In the Netherlands there is the genre we call "cabaret". For comedy performed on stage and the impact it has had on me, I have to mention the very first solo show of Hans Teeuwen, "Hard en Zielig". That was huge back then, and still is, kinda, for me now.

video games - Not something I play anymore (just because time and personal priorities, no judgement on them). My favorite console therefore is the oldschool SNES. I liked the Alien3 game for that platform. I was also a HUGE fan of Doom and Quake

Tv-series - no brainer: Twin Peaks by David Lynch and Mark Frost
Tv-comedy... more close contenders... but the clear choice for me would still be the legendary Dutch show "Jiskefet"

Excellent topic! I've thought of starting something similar myself many times, just never pulled the trigger. I like being able to get a better idea of where people are coming from, and for them to be able to see where I'm coming from.

Only going to go through arts I feel I know a *little bit* at least; TBH film and TV have been the only things I've focused on much for the last, oh, 15-20 years, so most picks below those two categories are...speculative and/or dated.

FILM

Feature: La La Land
Short: La jetée

Feature animation: Pinocchio
Short Animation: The Rabbit of Seville

Documentary feature: Shoah
Documentary short: Khaneh siah ast / The House is Black

Experimental/non-narrative feature: As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty
Experimental/non-narrative short: Lot in Sodom


TELEVISION

Non-limited series: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Limited series: Dekalog
TV movie: Edvard Munch
TV special/short: A Sense of History
Single episode of continuing series: "Once More, With Feeling" (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)


LITERATURE

Long novel or novel series: Dhalgren (Samuel R. Delany) - I suspect this will fall to second place when/if I ever finish In Search of Lost Time
Novel: The Master and Margarita (Mikhail Bulgakov)
Short novel: The Time Machine (H.G. Wells)
Novelette/novella: The Beast in the Jungle (Henry James)
Short story: Divine Madness (Roger Zelazny)

Play: Waiting for Godot (Samuel Beckett)

Long poem: Beowulf
Short poem: The Second Coming (W.B. Yeats)

COMICS

Long continuing series: Love and Rockets (Jaime and Gilberto Hernandez) (1981-present)
Short continuing series: Journey (William Messner-Loebs)
Limited series: Watchmen (Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons)
Single story: Maus (Art Spiegelman)

Newspaper comic strip: Peanuts (Charles Schulz)

MUSIC

CLASSICAL

Opera: Britten, Peter Grimes
Symphony: Mahler 2nd
Long Orchestral Work: Maw, Odyssey
Concerto: Mozart Clarinet
String Orchestra: Vaughan Williams, Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
Chamber music: Beethoven String Quarter 15 (the 3rd movement, the Molto adagio - Andante, is the greatest single piece of music I know)
Modern/experimental: Bryars, Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (long version with Tom Waits)

I like (or liked) lots of sacred/choral music, song, piano music, etc, but can't really come up with top examples at the moment.

POPULAR

pop/rock album: Springsteen, The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle
live album: Grateful Dead, Sunshine Daydream
box set: The Beach Boys, Good Vibrations

world music: Oumou Sangaré, Oumou

film soundtrack: Once Upon a Time in America

I like jazz quite a bit, but never really got serious about collecting it or exploring deeply; I guess at this point Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis are my go-to guys but picking any particular recordings is tough.



VISUAL ARTS

Jeez. Too hard. I will just say that some favorite painters include Vermeer, many of the French impressionists from the most famous to lesser lights (Caillebotte), surrealists (Dali, Chirico, Magritte) and symbolists (Moreau, Munch, Redon), pre-Raphaelites (Burne-Jones, Morris), lots of later 20th century artists (Jasper Johns being a standout). I dunno, one of the things I miss most about my former life is going to art museums, where (if it was a large general museum) I tended to come out with a list of 10 new favorites to look up, get books of works, etc. Too much out there. If I had to pick a single favorite painter it could be J.M.W. Turner; if I had to pick a single favorite work it might be, I dunno, Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights" or something else by Bosch or Brueghel the Elder (love those busy, crowded canvases), but to me this is a sillier game than picking a single favorite movie or album, and it's even harder to keep mental track of all of them. More obscure artists that I like would include the English writer/illustrator and occasional painter Mervyn Peake, and the photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. There's obviously lots of overlap between "fine art", "illustration" and comics as well so... eh, too much to go into here, I'll run into the character limit if I go on too much.

Can't say I've spent too much time thinking about or looking at sculptures, so I'm not going to even try in this category.


ARCHITECTURE

We done got an Architecture Thread which I've posted in. I will just add that given that I live in Frank Lloyd Wright country - within 2 hours of many of his major works in Spring Green, Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, it's probably good that I've gotten to like his work more over the years - though I probably wouldn't want to live in one of his houses, and am not sorry that I never got to meet him. Right about 2 years ago, just after my mom's death, my sister-in-law and I toured Taliesin:

Another building I like a lot that I've been inside:
Spoiler

One of the oldest skyscrapers in Chicago (or the world), dating to 1891-3.

Plenty of famous pieces of architecture worldwide that I'd love to visit someday but probably never will - three standouts being the Sagrada Familia, the Taj Mahal, and Angkor Wat.

Cannabis strain: Jack Herrer (Herrer)

I think that about covers everything I could say with any conviction. I've tasted some great wines in my time but it's been too many years to remember the specific vinters -- some Montepulciano from the restaurant I worked at awhile back is my real answer. I've also seen some great paintings, sculptures, and photographs over the years (including, actually, a Turner exhibit in SF, and Goya's (imo superior) Saturn painting), but specific favorites don't come to mind. I love experiencing architecture and interior design but don't know anything about them. I've seen a fair number of plays but haven't liked any, theater's always been kind of anathema to me. Traditional poetry, dance, opera etc. I wouldn't know where to begin. (Milton' Paradise Lost made a big impression on me in middle school, but in retrospect I'm not even sure I read it front to back.) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion deserves some kind of mention too as easily the piece of art I've spent the greatest number of hours on in my life (albeit a decade-plus ago at this point).
