Some of My Favorite Works of Art, Part I

  • Dec 31, 2009
To make our good friend Count Orlok happy I've compiled this list of some of my favorite paintings. (Actually the Count did all the heavy lifting, fo which I am very grateful) The sharp of eye will notice that the list is heavy on Renoir, Cezanne, Gaugain, and, of course, Van Gogh. Unfortunately we couldn't seem to find images of some the pieces I liked the most so we'll have to make do with what we've got here. There will be very few if any comments because the works speak for themselves.

I loved Picasso's work during his Rose and Blue periods. I could never relate to the Cubist stuff though.

Woman with a Crow
This also struck me as Katherine Hepburn in a horror movie. One of my very favorites. Picasso

oh Yes! This is so cool! I should've seen this before I wrote your (ahem) review...nice one, Karen! So how was your New Year's?
January 04, 2010
Subtle, Woo, real subtle.
: )
Woo has just tactfully pointed out that he wrote a mini-bio of our favorite royal reviewer... I wonder who it could be?!

Very quiet Woop. Just hung around with my daughter's family and played some games. I haven't read the (ahem) yet. Saving that for after I catch up on all the notifications.

This is a great list! I have a layman's appreciation for this fine art but I clearly need to visit museums more. I visited the deYoung last year (!) and was impressed with the American Colonial collection they had. Still want to see King Tut before he leaves San Francisco this year. I last saw that exhibit when I was a lot younger, back in 1972 or so.
January 02, 2010
The closest Tut came to me was Atlanta the first year it toured.

Cool. Money is tight right now, and the exhibit runs over $20.00! I plan on visiting the Tech Museum in San Jose where they have a Star Trek exhibit with many of the original props.
January 04, 2010
What about the museum in Las Vegas?
January 04, 2010
Oh yeah. I think you're referring to Star Trek the Experience. I think they closed that down a while ago. Has it been reopened? I'll have to check. San Jose is cheaper to get to, too. :)

And once I've got the Picasso stuff set up, you can add those too if you'd like. Great selection. Most of them are either Impressionist or Post-Impressionist works, which I suppose is either a coincidence or because that's your preferred style.
January 01, 2010
It's not an accident. I thought I might start with this group because I am fond of them and because you hadn't gotten around to them yet.
January 01, 2010
I think had one van Gogh, one Cezanne, and one Gauguin. There will be more to come though. I may do a total of five lists, so naturally there will be some that will focus on specific genres and styles.
January 01, 2010
Starry Night and the Gaugain I remember. Have to take a look. But then you were always adding to the original list. Degas and Surratt. But I don't remember the Cezanne.
January 01, 2010
I'm pretty sure that there was one Cezanne. There was one on my hand-written list anyway. If I didn't put it on here then I will soon. See, I might actually be more absent-minded than you after all. =D
January 02, 2010
Maybe I didn't check anything to see.
January 02, 2010
Just got your Picasso works finished, so you can add those if you want. Let me know if you need any others set up, won't ya? : )
January 02, 2010
Thans! I wish I could do all that stuff. I can't even get into my email a lot of the time. I was locked out since Xmas. It took Rob a good 5 minutes to get me back in. He's a firmer believer now in my Electronics Curse.

Queenie's got a techno-curse. Have you pissed off any techno-pagans or virtual wicca?
January 02, 2010
They just know that I'm on to them and have no intention of letting them take over the world without putting up a fight, so they give me all the shit they can. Computers hate me almost as much as I hate the. It's not people behind them--it's the damned things themselves.
January 02, 2010
Ah, the ghost in the machine! How dare Queenie piss off the deus ex machina?
But seriously, if you need me to create more data points for artwork, let me know. : )

You asked for it. MATISSE: The Bank (1907), La Danse (first version, not the completed work), Morocccan Landscape (Acanthus), Interior With a Bowl With Red Fish, Woman Before Aquarium, and Open Window. CHAGALL: Small Drawing Room, Nu Aux Fleurs, Burning House, Mewspaper Seller, and The Blue House. AUBREY BEARDSLEY: The Peacock Skirt, and from "Le Morte d'Arthur" How Sir Lancelot was known by Dame Elaine.

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 …
