    What is your favourite style of art and favourite era of art?

    I think I'm 50:50 when it comes to expressionism and impressionism, but the 1600's is definitely my favorurite when it comes to era. The detail, colour and meanings portrayed in the paintings back then were just amazing.

    Every time has its own special feature!
    One of his charm, his shade ....
    Each time, it is measurable to the artistic growth of the individual: try to compare different age groups with the designs that the individual does in his age group: 3 / 5 years 6 / 8 years and so on. There is a beautiful and ugly.
    Each artist expresses what he feels inside, so to speak contagious from social life, from his surroundings.
    I paint, but bad paint.
    And it is one of the best ways to express myself and my emotions.

    Hard to say...I like so many. Maybe the Pre-raphaelites. I also love the paintings of Van Gogh and Gauguin.

    This depends how I am feeling!
    I like surrealism.
    I also really appreciate a well rendered graphite portrait  - contemporary.
    Monet rocks.
    Turner is awesome.
    I also like hyper-realism - the likes of Chuck Close.
    Semi-representational abstracts are cool.

    For me its more like illustration being a fantasy art nut, Michael Whelam, Jim Burns and Tom Kidd spring to mind. Not the ususal old masters but everyone to there own taste.

    My favorite type of style of art - is online graphics, especially from virtual worlds. I like anime, and cartoony, art. So, I'd go with era of online gaming art.

    I like Art i can see with the eye not the mind. To me painting is more about the doing than the admiring.

    I like the painting of Baroque time, the colors are amazing, and through the painting, I can see the artists are very confident.

    The Baroque Period has great art ! I'm not sure how many people are interested in this era, but it has some great music as well:
