My own! Smile
Oh, you mean famous art. lol

My favorite painting is a simple one called 'The Gleaners' by Jean-Fran├žois Millet

I love the depth of color, and the idea of painting peasant women who toil for the 'leftovers' in such a beautiful way.
I was fortunate to see it when I was in Paris and it made me cry.

I have a degree in Art History, so I could really annoy all of you. I will just start with this one. lol

You can post your own too Big Grin

I took an Art History course in college as an elective. I loved the course! I would love to hear anything you have to add.

RE: Art That You Like
I planned to be a curator, until I learned how much school you needed and how awful the pay was.
There is a reason so many art history PhD's are typically children of the uber wealthy (i.e. not me) lol

I will be back in this thread for sure Smile

RE: Art That You Like
Barbara Kruger's graphic art from the 80's has a political message that is still relevant today (sadly).

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
