Favorite artist/artwork thread?
Pollice Verso, Kramskoi's Christ in the Desert or The Garden of Earthly Delights
it changes a lot, but bumskee is the guy who made me want to paint in the first place
Pretty sure he moved back to Korea. He still posts on his blog sometimes: http://blog.naver.com/PostList.nhn?blogId=minskee&widgetTypeCall=true
But yeah as far as I know he doesn't take part in any online art communities or anything anymore.
his sketchy style is simple and nice to look at.
Definitely a good inspiration, too.
poor bumskee, modo-bashers and porntreon-whores killed him
Not really. Bumskee is primarely an illustrator, not a concept artist, so modo-bashers have zero impact on his industry and I don't see how patreon whores have any negative influence on any professional artist's career whatsoever.
I mean... who, in their right mind, would dive into this lol
p.s. goodbye bumskee
Google Art Project has the highest res images available online. You can't download them directly from there though anymore, but there are workarounds to it. And actually wikipedia has all of the images rehosted there too, so you can find it on wikipedia then save them.
The other best place is to look through auction houses that frequently sell art. They often post hi-res images since some people will be spending 10's of thousands on paintings they may not be able to see in real life first.
Lastly, the laziest route is when doing a google image search for an artist you click Search Tools> Size>Large.
"A Little Night Music" by Dorothea Tanning.
Not my number one favourite, but certainly one of the best.
Andrew Wyeth is probably my favorite more traditional painter
/ic/ is a terrible place for an artist because there's only thee types of people here:
People whose only source of artistic inspiration is video game concept art.
People who want to draw like their animes.
People who are not aware of the two hundred years of artistic development that happened after renaissance.
and because no one mentioned francis bacon I had to
I won't be boring and post Sorolla/Sargent or Beskinski, I always see those.
Have some Carl Larsson
I like his grainy and thick textures a lot. The materials aren't hyper realistic but still feel like you could just touch them. There are more cleaner paintings by him but I really like the "muddy" ones.
My grandpa had an original Mead Schaeffer oil painting. It was pretty big. Can't remember it too well anymore, I just remember it had pirates. I was never able to find an image online that looked like it. I think it went to one of my uncles when my grandpa died. I should find out which one and bug them for a picture.
>I'll tell someone to kill themselves for shortening a word on the internet!
>THEN I'll think people will give a shit about anything i say after!
>No one will suspect im a spiteful neckbeard loser!
>An excellent plan that cannot fail
by all means, continue.
I'll say that they're angry! That'll show them!
Nice ironic meme by the way. I like how you replaced the word "kek" or "lel" with the traditional "lol". That was a good choice to really spice up the insult and make it seem like you we're hip with the kids while also maintaining a calmly ironic demeanor.
Great internet fight /B/ro!!!
alright loser, see you around.
Look at those greys, so wierd!
Whistler has some sick atosphere in his paintings.
You have to admire monet for his chatedral paitnings, it is said he evetnualy got nightmares from having to paint them so much.
Swedens best, arguably better than zorn?
Not swedish. Kroyer was born in Norway but lived and worked in Denmark. He was part of the Skagen painters (Skagen being an area in Denmark) that had some exchange with swedish painters since it is geographically close to the south of Sweden. But yeah, his work is damn good!
she doesn't really influence my work much, but I love yayoi kusama
Not my favourite, and certainly not on par with most of the artists posted here, but I really enjoy Toppi. He's an ink wizard.
Reminds me of:
I like the first one. There's a nice subtle and quiet treatment to it all. The flatness and simplicity reads well and enhances a decorative pattern to the canvas. Reminds me a lot of a Japanese aesthetic with their woodblock prints. Most of his work I don't like all that much, but some of it is nice. Perhaps you are being thrown off by set expectations on what a painting is supposed to look like and these don't meet that criteria--obviously he is chasing a different goal than Sargent or Repin or some of the others posted in this thread.
4chan is a reaction to popular culture if you ask me, which is mainly caused by its anonymity.
The interest for classical art is like a reaction to today's hype on modern art.
People can express their true opinions rather than saying something to fit in. Ergo, no one goes here and says they like modernist art in order to fit in.
Not much, but Doxy's my main inspiration for getting better.
Gets me every fucking time
my nigga, i prefer his colored comics tho
Ivan Shishkin. I got to visit his house and see his pencil landscapes. The detail was incredible.
This was the piece that made me want to start painting.
Pollock inspired me. I paint semi-abstract. At first I didn't understand why I would be attracted to his works, I was a child, in middle school my teacher enrolled me in an art show and from then I've been enveloped in painting like that. Most call it garbage, but its my solace. I feel good when I paint this way, I paint what I feel and what I see sometimes. Prefer to be left alone when I paint, and I didn't want world notoriety or anything like that I just wanted to paint.
Mein negro. I wish I could draw figures with half as much psychological intensity as hers.
Nicola Samouri is pretty neat. Another similar artist is Olivier de Sagazan; pretty weird dude but makes really eerie paintings, sculptures, and performance videos.
