    They can go on and on can't they, deecoleworld. I like the Romantic period too. Believe it was Delacroix who painted the one here, Liberty Leading the People. You brought up some artists i'm not all that familiar with, thank you! O Blake a fave, too.

    I remember corresponding with you on the Pendergrast library once in a story you wrote, effer. Writing down those paintings' names now, thank you. How cool to hear you saw the M Lisa. Bet Mona followed you around with her eyes!

    So many paintings of John the Baptist, many of them superlative works of art. Winslow Homer, a great American painter. And the Birth of Venus is a fave here, too, Seafarer Mama! This going to be really tough choosing a best -whew!

    Both awesome painters. With the extra spice of different eras. Excellent faves , raymondphilippe. Delacroix was a superstar of the 19th century.

    Seurat, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884 featured at the The Chicago institute of Art.. one of my favorites.. not really a war painting but one that encompasses the soul i believe..
