Spurred on by the realization that I couldn't include all of my favorite works of art in one list, I created this second list as a companion to
I've always been enamored of many different forms of art, though there is no particular style that I'm most fond of. Here, I have included a brief list of my favorite works from artists in different eras as well as styles. You may notice recurring themes throughout these pictures, particularly that of mythologically-inspired images and the depiction of female nudes goddesses seen mainly in the Renaissance
pieces. In addition to Pre-Raphaelite, Renaissance, cubist, surrealist, and expressionist pieces, I've included works from the golden age of children's book illustrations. I hope you enjoy this rather eclectic collection...
Please note that these works are in no particular order and that I have added brief explanations as to why they are on the list.
