      Rothkos horizon paintings look like shit in a book but if you see them at a gallery they are impressive.

      Overly simplistic in its presentation and crude in its delivery.

      I once painted a copy of a Rothko and posted it on Facebook. No one could tell which was the original.

      You cant beat the french impressionists

      Agreed.

      I find that particular Monet painting moving to tears.

      I mean to go to the Money museum when I was in Paris earlier this year. I didn't but it turned out OK because it gives me impetus to visit Paris next year. It will be one of the first places I go.

      Name your favourite painting #1

      I never did care for Van Gogh. I kind of like his "Starry Night" painting but it looks awfully similar to what I would imagine a school child would paint with finger paints.

      Both Dali and especially Picasso were impostors.

      I would respectfully disagree; while lots of modern artists might well be impostors, both of those two demonstrated mastery of earlier styles before heading off into new territory. You might disagree with their taste, but after you look at their earlier stuff in traditional styles, you can't dispute their artistry.

      Picasso achieved medicocrity early on and then went to shit from there! So yes I absolutely dispute his artistry!

      Dali I am indifferent to and happy to ignore completely! His work is ugly and ultimately juvenile/infantile. IMHO

      Beat me to it. As I mentioned above about an art student's sketch pad with Picasso, Dali was more of a cartoonist than an artist. Yes, he did have original ideas but they mostly seemed to resort to melting figures such as clocks. I never saw much else from him.

      I do believe Picasso later on showed some genius in his abstract art. The shapes seemed to draw a picture figuratively. Looking at the individual areas of his artwork seemed to show nothing but when taken together came alive.

    • Anything by Tetsuro Sawada. He said he was influenced by the greatest painter of landscapes in the 19th century, Ando Hiroshige. Hiroshige was so well regarded that even van Gogh copied one of his paintings.

      Here is a Sawada:

      More Rembrandt

      I agree about Rembrandt. While some of his paintings may seem rather dark, some are just striking. If you ever have a chance to see one of his paintings in person do yourself a favor and go. I had the chance to see "Bust of a Young Woman" and "St. Bartholomew" when they were at The Getty.

      The security guard in the room told me that Rembrandt would often paint the saints with a hint of how they died. St. Bart died by getting stabbed. His painting features St. Bart with a knife.

      You're supposed to be shocked. The use of his colour, the strange poses, all of it is designed to invoke a hellish nightmare vision.

      Even his landscapes hide scenes of pure and utter terror.

      Its a reminder of the fragility of life. The whisper of our voice against the roar of the universe. How insignificant we all are.

      That is his genius.

      Hiroshige's version is vastly superior, proving for once and all time that van Gogh was a hack who couldn't even copy right.

      You can see the depth of Hiroshige's painting. The detail is unmatched by van Gogh. van Gogh's rendition looks like just a step above a comic book rendition.

      OK, I'll give you that. Thanks for pointing that out.

      I guess what I have issue with in this painting is that he has great depth of perspective in the head scarf yet draws the mouth like a cartoon, void of any depth and detail at all. Then, the left shoulder looks like he said "fuck it, I spent too much time on the head scarf" and then just proceeded to lash some scratch marks to give it some texture.
