    I'm also rather partial to the Bauhaus school of graphics

    This is the same artist as the Dolce Vita painting, Anne Garney. I could look at this one for ages, I love the use of colour.

    I haven't a clue, I just like the aesthetics.

    Beautiful Japanese Koi photo (worth seeing in extra-large view)
    This comes from Stock Xchng though, so if you want to use it make sure you get it from there.

    Oh, I had never seen this thread before. Here's one of my favourite paintings.
    I really hope I'll get to Washington DC again sometime so I can see it live. Although I've seen a lot of Monet in Paris, I can't complain :razz:

    Awww, my first thread back again -

    I've been looking at some Francis Bacon again after he turned up in the news (one of his paintings is selling soon)

    There's a gallery I love near Waterloo by Feliks Topowski. The guy studied art in Poland and came to the UK and drew pictures f the war, then later documented other things with his drawing.

    Banjo Lesson by Henry Ossawa Tanner.

    I'm not really one for anything too abstract, I prefer to see pictures which tell stories, portray relationships or give you a taste of history.

    This is called "John Joan and John at Cleethorpes" and it's really special to me because it's actually of my (great) aunt and uncle (in the blue and white stripy chairs). It's painted by John Yardley who is in fact one of their closest friends and a famous artist as well. My uncle was also a brilliant artist but never 'made it' like John Yardley did. He (my uncle) can't paint anymore though, after several strokes which is a real shame. I love this painting just because it's captured my aunt so beautifully, and with so few brush strokes. It's wonderfully understated and doesn't use many colours and even from that tiny picture I can tell it's her and it's just a perfect picture.

    Anyone want to give me £950 to buy the original? :(

    Er - where's MoK gone?

    It's still strange looking at that painting and thinking that it's my great aunt and uncle, and that they are 84 now. Nice, but strange.

    Just found the post - mine are still toddling, so I've got a few years to go yet (and then I'll be damn well on the Site all the time to check they're not posting queries about knobs and oral sex:D )

    my favourite painting is one that's for sale in a shop in my town and I love it. I can't show you a picture cos I don't know who it's by but it's a picture of a street with cars, lamposts and flats and it's raining.

    I would buy it but it's £400.

    Well as I'm off in a couple of days it seems appropriate to drag this back one last time. I can only hope no one minds the indulgence (and in just this thread my blatant refusal to pay attention to image width problems...)


    Another favourite Van Gogh-

    And one of Lucien Freud's

    here's one that I took, thought it was somewhat beautiful.

    It's the Natural History Museum, London.
