eNtRopY

Main Question or Discussion Point

Perhaps it's simply the asthetic that attracts my attention, but I've always held a certain fondness for the simplisitc beauty of Picasso's Enamel Saucepan.

Post an image (of reasonable kByte-size) of something you appreciate.

Picasso is nice.

I love fine art - however my true taste lies in the extremely abstract art. Some geometric art, but mostly truly fluid art. That's what gets me the most.

I was in Edinburgh Scotland (sp?) for one day a few years ago and of that one day I was given fifteen minutes to go through the Art Museum in that city. The tour guide told us we should see the sculpture "The Three Graces."

I'm not a big Sculpture fan, but I thought okay, I'll check it out. I walked in and ahead of me, in one gallery of that museum, I saw one of Rembrandt's mature self portraits! I rushed into the room and on another wall was a landscape by John Constable, and on another wall was a large El Greco Religious painting and on the wall behind me was a Rubens Mythology painting.

Four of my favorite painters' favorite paintings in one room!

I ran through the rest of that building and did the entire place in just over the alotted 15 minutes.

It is a nice Picasso, eNtRopY, simple and bold.

oh ja dali is the best! i am a big fan of temtation of anthony as well. went to a dali sculpture exhibition last year which was soo good. i would never have thought sculptures would be that great, really, but they were so moving i don't understand why. but i was just transfixed, i wanted to actually go up to one and hug it, mother it or something. ahha found it, you can't really get a sense of it in a photo but it's just so...existentially agsty

You guys would probably like an artist named Peter Blume. Also a Surrealist.

7dogs instantly transports me back to a kid's saturday morning haircuts at the neighborhood barber shop, with ****kicker music (full of steel guitar) oozing out of the old table radio. This picture hung serenely on the wall and it always transfixed me throughout the whole clip (,accompanied by "ya broke ma heart in two...").
