    It's so expressive. Dali was truly a man ahead of his time. And the ideas it provokes... Oh, I love it.

    M C Escher, has got to be my favourate by far, his paintings are so eratic, and chaotic

    I was going to put up some Escher, but I thought not to because they aren't paintings.

    This is my favourite of his though.

    Those are pretty badass.

    There's another artist that I love that does similar things, Irvin Peacock.

    Cottages at Cordeville by Vincent Van Gogh.

    I know that EVERYBODY loves his work, but this one is my favorite.

    I like Dorothea Tanning's work:

    The last living original Surrealist

    "Ein klein nachtmusik" A Little Night Music

    Another Tanning I love:

    Anieli stróże (If I recall correctly, it means Guardian Angels)

    I think Waterhouse's Boreas is absolutely stunning:

    I think if I had to choose a favorite painting of all time, however, it would have to be Jules Bastien-Lepage's Joan of Arc.
    It is 100 inches by 110 inches and no small photograph could even come close to doing it justice.
    I hesitate to even post it here.
    When I go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art I will stand there and stare into it for an hour or more.
    It is astoundingly captivating and perhaps the greatest work of art of all time in my eyes.

    He did a number of paintings as well.
    Some of his early landscapes when he was living in Italy were fantastic.

    I am also quite fond of Waterhouse's Diogenes: (currently my desktop on my work computer)

    But then, I am a big fan of Diogenes himself, so there is more than just the appreciation of the painting there.
