The first Artist whose work I fell in love with is Carravaggio.

(Milan, 28 September 1571 - Porto Ercole, 18 July 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. He is commonly placed in the Baroque school, of which he is considered the first great representative.


My favorite artist or at least the first artist whose work I first fell in love with was Caravaggio.





He is a Baroque Artist. This guy was amazing.

There's a story about her, if you don't already know it...

They had a huge collection at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. I posted some pictures in this thread. I also like the Botticelli's they had as well.

Check out the Caravaggio shield in that thread, amazing.

Once again, I am in your debt.

I didn't even know it was a famous painting until this thread. I saw the thread, remembered the print from my childhood, did a Google image search for "red haired girl sitting painting" and there it was.

Now that I know, I think I might buy a copy for my pool room.

Funny thing about memories, though. I seemed to remember the girl looking in a more upward direction than straight ahead. But that hair is unmistakable.

Never a debt owed...


It always seemed to me, even before the stories, that she seemed sad, bored, or perhaps discontent.

That may be an explanation for her life choices...seems as if she wasn't content...always searching for something better.

Although, she didn't do without creature comforts.

This is one of my favorite paintings as well. Although I am being biased because my wife painted it.

Cool thread!

I introduce Jeremy Geddes to those of you who've never experienced his paintings. I especially love love love the astronaut series. But a perfect vacuum is what hooked me (girl in bedroom- first image).

I like those. It kinda reminds of a screenshot from a fantasy rpg. A bit uncanny.

Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth.



Oh my yes. When I was a young boy I would stare at that painting as it hanged in my room. I developed a crush on Christina somehow relating to her and lonely beauty of the landscape. It was so much later I learned she was a cripple and actually crawling thru the tall grass as evidenced in the painting and her elbow. I love all the Wyeth's work.

I could have said the obvious pieces of art like Saturn Devouring His Son Or The Starry Night, but, even though I appreciate them very much, I'm going to go with one that I think doesn't get mentioned very often and that is....

The Vampire by Philip Burne-Jones.



I just love all of the things that I feel everytime I look at this painting. Thanks for creating this thread!
