    I like almost everything van Gogh painted. One of my favorites is Church at Auvers.

    There's only have one van Gogh hanging at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

    Put me in a room with a van Gogh and I'll get choked up every time.

    JonZ, Frank Frazetta's the man, The Destroyer's one of his best fantasy paintings, and a fave of mine too.[​IMG]
    Frazetta's 'The Barbarian', 'The Conqueror' and 'Death Dealer' are also superb examples of this genre, the man is a god.
    Michael Whelan and John Berkey have done many incredible paintings in the SF genre, worth checking them out.
    From classic art, I've always liked Constable's landscape paintings.

    Thanks Jon, museum? With the originals of those Frazetta paintings I've loved for years? Wow I'm a bit jealous, see if you can nick one.[​IMG]

    The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymous Bosch. Maybe it was during that phase as a kid, but the detail and imagination really caught me.
    This is a triptych, so you have the left, center, right, and outer wings.

    It's interesting that a thread like this has never been started before. As for me, I like lots of stuff by De Kooning, Rothko, and Roschenberg.

    Stepping down from the plateau of high art, I confess to a fondness for Chesley Bonestell's lovely astronomical/space paintings.

    You guys realize what a challenge this thread is to load at home when your iMac is very lean on memory and you're stuck with a lowly 56k/dial-up connection? My little iMac made it very clear to me he didn't like it.

    Here, in the office, on a T1 line, it's all the difference.

    And I'm getting a DSL connection later this week or early next week.

    Hey how about that melting clock thing by Dali? That's pretty cool too. I'm having a mental block about the name of it at the moment.
