Cool, Dom! That's my Alma mater- not the museum, the school. I've spent hours and hours in the institute. Fantastic place.


This one is world famous, and a favorite of mine. The size of the painting is amazingly huge. The Pointillist, Geoges Seurat. The painting is "Sunday afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte." They made a Broadway musical about, and around this painting, and the artist, called "Sunday in the park with George." I saw it with Mandy Patentkin and Bernadette Peters. It was a really great show. They called this style Pointillism, because the whole painting is made up of thousands of tiny dots of color.


Image


I don't know who the artist is, on this one, but it's bad assed.
:flop:

Image



This is my second favorite artist of all time.

Andy Warhol was a strange bird, but had some of the greatest art of all time- imo. I've read tons of books about the whole "Factory" and "Studio 54" scene. Great stuff. He did a whole series of paintings ( actually silk screens) with a disaster theme- like car crashes, and things like that. Strange, but really cool- in a twisted sort of way. I saw the traveling show a few years ago, at the Institute. See it, it you ever get a chance- and if twisted stuff appeals to you. :twisted:

Image

Image

One of the most interesting things about his work- imo- is that so many of his works were actually completed by some of his "Factory" workers. His whole history- the people he hung out with, the whole scene he was involved with, his photography collection, and on and on, was really fascinating. I would have liked to have been there. :) He was really involved with the Velvet Underground, and Lou Reed.

Most of you know this one: This particular video is cool, because it's "a tribute to lou reed's seminal "walk on the wild side" featuring photos of holly, candy, joe and jackie, (some of Andy's "Superstars") and deleted footage from "ciao! manhattan". Ciao! Manhattan is a 1972 American avant garde film starring Edie Sedgwick, also one of Andy Warhol's "Superstars." One of his groupies- Valerie Solanis- would later shoot him, almost killing him. http://www.warholstars.org/chron/andydies68n33.html This video is a great piece of art, in it's own right.

and another good one, by The Velvet Underground.

Some of his films are pretty strange- Like "Empire" for example, hours of just the Empire State Building. Meh! Some of them were pretty cool, though. :flop:

If the homo-erotic offends you, don't watch this. :P

Andy Warhol. Screen Tests, Empire, Sleep, Kiss, Eat e Blow Job. Trilha Sonora "Heroin by Velvet Underground".

Warhol also did some famous Rolling Stones album covers, among others.


Image

Lol. The original release of these actually had a real zipper on the pants.

Image



Giacometti is one of my favorite mid-century Italian sculptors. He did some awesome work. You should look up some of his other pieces. I also like Henry Moore and John Smith- you probably saw some of their work there, too.

Image



This is "Night Hawks" :P by Edward Hopper. A great 20th century American Realist painter. I really like his work a lot.

Image

Hopper Self Portrait


Image


Picasso is my all time favorite artist. A genius, for sure. He was an asshole- as far as women were concerned, heheh, but man, what an artist!!! His "Blue Period" is renown, but I don't care for it much. I think that his Cubist, and abstract work was brilliant.


Image

Two of his most acclaimed paintings.

Guernica- a political piece, that is just amazing- in my estimation.


Image

and Demoiselles D'Avignon.

Image

Below are two of his pieces that I copied. I painted the self portrait- oil, and the second is pastel and colored pencil. I just took the pics of them with my droid. They look better, generally, more vibrant, in person. I didn't light them very well, but you get the picture. (ar ar)

His self- portrait- by me.

Image

I forget what this one is called. Come to think of it, I don't remember if it is Picasso, or Braque. Anyway...

Image


I don't know this guys work very well, but it's called "The Indestructible," by Evergood- I think from the 40's. His work reminds me of Edvard Munch, and some of his contemporaries. Earlier artists.

Edvard Munch's "Scream," just sold last month for almost $120 million dollars. You all know that one.

Oops!

Image

Here we go.

Image

Great thread, Dom! :flop:

:cheers:

God damn, seahawk. Nice post.

That monk sculpture is just awesome. When you first see it, that's all you see down a long hall. It's the coolest thing.

You're walking down the hall and there's this dark shadowed person just staring at you. It's almost ghostly.



And this one here is famous to me, because it's in the movie, Ferris Bueller's Day off. The picture is made up of thousands or millions of dots. Something like that. Can't remember. I just know it's all dots.

The chair, I don't know. I didn't read anything about it. I just took the picture.

They've got so much stuff there. It's all pretty much priceless. Stuff from 1000 B.C. and up. The place is so huge, I didn't even see all of it.

Yesterday was actually the first time I've ever been there. That was probably one of the biggest attractions in Chicago that I've never been to. Never even on a school field trip either. The place is so huge I didn't even see everything. I was there for a few hours too.

Yeah, thanks Dom. :flop: Did you read it? lol.

the "thousands or millions of dots" is called Pointillism. I wonder if anyone actually read my post, or noticed that two of those art pieces in the post are mine- or copies that I made- and no, not on a copy machine. lol. Anyway, I did like this thread. You should add to it.
