Favourite paintings



Not actually my no 1 favourite Schiele, but most of the others are pretty NSFW

Basquiat- definitely one of those paintings that look better in real life than a photo- it’s huge when you see it in person, about 4m long and there’s different layers of colour

Remedios Varo- less well known Surrealist

Exchange recommendations with DiSers for things they wouldn't ordinarily like


Wish I had an answer for this


Good thread!

Not sure I have a fave painting which is making me question myself.

Might be this series:


Barnett Newman’s Stations Of The Cross

This is the first one in the series:

What would be your favourite artworks then?

Maybe cliched but

but also

And any van gogh’s tbh


mahoosive fan of Egon Schiele too.

probably this though


argh didn’t mean to reply


Was going to post this.


You’re going to have to enrol on 4 years of art school now, and then come back with an answer.


Do you ever think Casper David Friedrich got fed up of painting mist and fog?


Again - not sure about a favourite (other than really obvious stuff like Edward Hopper).

The last painting I saw that made a memorable impact was this one (when I went to the National Portrait Gallery in June):


Sounds like a whole thing.

I purchased this about two years ago, does that count:


This is almost a companion piece



L’origin du monde


maybe once.


Seaside - Lim Yew Kuan

Been liking John Martin stuff a fair bit recently as well.


I went to a place in Madrid and documented all the dogs from the paintings once, do they count?

Barnett Newman’s Stations Of The Cross[/quote]
Never heard of him/her but that’s quality.

Paintings which make a big impact on me are few and far between but I could’ve stared at this Pollock for hours.


Malevich’s black square on the cover there is pretty eerie when you see it in real life. I went to the exhibition at the Tate a little while ago, and they had it hung in it’s original presentation. Public buildings in Russia in those days used to have a religious icon hung in a corner by the ceiling, and he hung a big black square up there instead at his show as a kick in the face at the church, which is why people made such a fuss about it at the time.
