Woman and a ParrotWoman and a Parrot
Gustave Courbet

Courbet: “ I am fifty years old and I have always lived in freedom; let me end my life free; when I am dead let this be said of me: 'He belonged to no school, to no church, to no institution, to no academy, least of all to any régime except the régime of liberty."

Winged BeautiesWinged Beauties
George Pérez

I'm using two beautiful works to start a more general thread about winged humans (or, as in science fiction, humanoids) in art, my own strong passion for nearly 40 years. At left is new art for a comics cover (click for 800-px-wide version). At the end of this comment is a favorite painting by Boris Vallejo. I've long tried to examine...

JMW Turner

An extraordinary JMW Turner exhibition is currently on display at Dallas Museum of Art. The show's next (and last) stop in US will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This is probably the most popular special exhibition that I've ever seen in the Dallas area. It is quite overwhelming to have so many Turners all at once. The piece...

Ascension DayAscension Day
Michael Newberry

Michael Newberry's "Ascension Day" is one of my favorite of his non-traditional paintings. I believe that the essence of my enjoyment is the fully worked out form which simultaneously presents both symmetry and asymmetry, beauty and tension, action and self-centeredness. When I visited his studio, Michael and I discussed his axiomatic concep... (See the whole comment)

Self-Portrait as the Allegory of Painting (La Pittura)Self-Portrait as the Allegory of Painting (La Pittura)
Artemisia Gentileschi

Artemisia Gentileschi's Self-Portrait as the Allegory of Painting is an incredibly bold work for it's time. Painted during the Italian Baroque period in approximately 1630, and using elements of the "Allegory of Painting" from author Cesare Ripa's 1611 Iconologia, Gentileschi took an incredibly egotistical stand- to say that she was not only a fema...

After the HauntAfter the Haunt
A. Robert Malcom

While this was done initially as a study of doing a straw broom, it quickly became, as so often it does to me, a themed work, this time being a gentle parody of William Harnett's famous paintings [he did two versions] "After the Hunt" and, since was doing a broom, decided to double play on the idea of witches - both the whisking and the post-Hallow...

Still life and three puppiesStill life and three puppies
Paul Gauguin

There are several reasons that I want to share this. First, to finish off what I had started: after Babushka brought me the “Moscow Courtyard”, I had a chance to visit Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. There was a Paul Gauguin exhibition at Met at the time and there I saw Still life and three puppies for the first time. It very much stoo...
