This is the cover of a book I was rereading. I thought it was pretty interesting. Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast, 1870, by Albert Bierstadt. Interestingly enough, Bierstadt had never visited the Pacific coast, he painted from written descriptions of the area.
Raven - Luis Royo
I'm a big fan of Maria Helena Viera da Silva. This might be my favourite of hers.

I also really like a guy called Richard Thorn, mainly for the way he captures shadows and water.

I actually really struggled to only post 2 of his... He makes me want to give up painting!
****, man - no idea why I can't embed pics from this tablet.
Somewhat defeats the object...
Favourite painting is a tough one! Saw this one though at the National Gallery in London last year and was quite taken in by it.Guess it makes one reflect on the different stages of life
The Four Ages Of Man (1629) by Valentin Du Boulougne
The Cistern Chapel is good.
You mean the Sistine Chapel? Absolutely! My neck still hurts...
The Vatican Museum is fantastic. A wealth of wonderful art across a surprisingly broad spectrum. When we visited, the Sistine Chapel (as well as the corridors leading to it) was crammed with tourists, while you could stroll around the other galleries at your leisure. Yes, the Sistine Chapel is lovely, and rightly famous, but so many folk choose to miss out on the other treasures right under their noses.
Paintings by Wolfang Lettl
An addition to my favourites: Sir Edward Burne Jones-The Baleful Head
The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali
Spotted this guy in York. Good to see young people respecting the classics .
A really lovely atmosphere in his work.
The Scream (Munch). just standing & staring at the image for a few minutes relaxes me. my pain is nothing compared to his.
