I have seen this painting at least six times in my life, I first seen it when I was about 14 years old on a school trip and I was completely blown away by it, you will not seen what I have seen by looking at photographs because they never really give a true representation. When I looked at this painting close up it was just a mass of ugly messy brush marks but as I walked away it became more and more realistic so real you expect to hear the rushing water. I did over the years fall for at least one other painting by this artist but did not realise it was the same artist at the time which makes it all the more interesting because I fell for them for the same reasons, messy brush marks.

Thanks for the opportunity, Gareth.
I wrote a hub about this exact thing a little while ago :-)
Christ in tears by El Grecco. The facial expression in this masterpiece is so enigmatic. I notice something different every time i look at it: compassion, admiration, amusement, sadness...
I think that's a very difficult question because our impression of life, along with our artistic preferences, changes as we grow older. It can sometimes change on a daily basis.
Although I can't give a definitive and exact answer, one artwork with a lasting effect on me is Nighthawks by Edward Hopper (oil on canvas, 1941).
To me, the diner is both an extension of, and sanctuary to, the dark silent street outside. The contrast between the shadowy, deserted street and the well-lit peopled diner is eroded by the lonesome quality that pervades throughout the whole composition.
There is a "ships that pass in the night" feeling about this painting. No matter where you are, or at what time of day, there is always new conversation and interaction to be found, if only fleeting. I think that's what I love about it although it can sometimes leave me feeling a little cold.
Starry Night by Van Gogh. It presents a nighttime serenity we all know when we go outside at night, but is so hard to portray.
an awesome car or a well done renovation. other then that i find what many consider fine art to be nothing even worth looking at.
A Starry Night...by Van Gogh. I also love anything by Degas and Monet. Andy Warhol, too.
My favorite work of art would be Veiled Lady, a sculpture by Raffaele Monti.
To imagine this kind of diaphanous treatment using marble just blows the mind.

Now this question has got me thinking... It is quite difficult to choose one piece of art which is my favourite.

With his masterpiece Monalisa I consider Leonardo Da Vinci as the greatest ever, his work is still revered until now or perhaps Picasso who is well known for his abstract painting.

I'm wondering if anybody else ponders this. I have always felt that the distinction between "art" and "craft" is a very picky, very snobby, fine-line distinction wherein one should tread very...

Who is your favorite artist and why?I love Piet Mondrian. I like the clean lines and blocks of color in his later works. His style appeals to my organized nature. I could never look at a Jackson Pollack all day.
