Anything by Scott Mutter. I like his "surrational images".

Istvan Sandorfi's paintings are intriguing.

Re: Your Favorite Paintings

Ugh! Hate the blocks at work, so many pictures on here (and other threads) are just Red Xs!!!

Here is one that I own (of course not the original...I wish!)

If it's anything this thread has taught me is that the next time I'm in NY I need to get my ass to The Met.

And I don't know where this is from (was a Shostakovich CD cover) but it's such kitsch social realist, I love it...

That's cropped slightly, but it's from a 1944 painting by Alexander Deineka (also transliterated as Aleksandr Deyneka) called "Expance".
Thank you . Now have un-cropped hi-res version. Impressed able to identify it.
Google Images can be pretty helpful in tracking some things down. I use it quite a bit.

Scott Mutter was a photographer, not a painter, and the more customary name for the cutesy "surrational image" label is photomontage.

Re: Your Favorite Paintings

Here's another of my favorites:



"Soldiers Playing at Cards"
by Fernand Leger

We saw this painting at an exhibit in Seattle. It was quite striking.

Re: Your Favorite Paintings

I don't think the painting that hangs in my room is available online... but I have an oil painting by Larry Vorhees showing deer drinking at a stream right before a waterfall. It used to hang at my grandfather's house and when he moved, I asked for that painting. It was the soothing imagery that drew me to that painting. It's a favorite of mine. I also rather like the artwork of Charles Summey.

Re: Your Favorite Paintings

I went to an exhibition many moons ago at RA in London of American landscape painters (can only remember names Church, Cole and Wimslow(?) Homer). I thought some of them were stunning and as good as anything by Turner or Constable. But they don't seem very fashionable, and I'd be the first to admit it wasn't one of those must-see/hot ticket exhibitions. (You can be guaranteed anything impressionist will sell out)

I'm not very familiar with Church, but his Wikipedia entry has some really nice examples. Ditto Cole. Winslow Homer is probably one of the best-known names, notable at least as much for seascapes as landscape painting.

I know this is suppose to be paintings but of all the Wooster prints I own, this is without a doubt my favorite. This is Wooster Scott's Victorian Kaleidoscope.
