Alexei L. Antonov

This painting illustrates a mastery of technique capable of depicting the rays of brilliant yellow-orange light radiating throughout the chamber and particularly emphasizing a full and intricately portrayed rose. Mr. Antonov truly takes the techniques of Renaissance and Classical masters a step further, as can be seen in a grand showing of ... (See the whole comment)

Alexei L. Antonov

This Antonov painting depicts luxurious pink grapes hanging from an elegant vase. The fruits elicit a joyous and vibrant color and convey this general impression while remaining individually unique and shaded in a myriad of varieties. The pomegranate and peach supplement the scene with additional bright color, elaborate texture, and detail. ... (See the whole comment)

The Guitar PlayerThe Guitar Player
Johannes Vermeer

The lady in this painting is not the typical modern pop-entertainer. She is delicate, elegantly dressed, and genuinely appreciative of fine music, as evidenced in her curious and almost beaming eyes. Quite fittingly, in her background is a painting of a landscape with lush growth and bright colors. Not only does it further reinforce the theme of th... (See the whole comment)

The ConcertThe Concert
Johannes Vermeer

This musical group is performing in an atmosfere filled with good taste. A checkered tile floor, with geometric designs incorporated into it, once again manages to show Vermeer's hallmark, contrast with colors. The room itself is filled with art, from paintings on the wall to the inside cover of the piano. Other instruments are in the vicinity, ind... (See the whole comment)

Alexei L. Antonov

An ornamented teapot stands in the center, in front of a pure white curtain, ornamented with leaves and exhibiting folds that can compete in detail with those of any real curtain. On a polished wooden table stands a porcelain cup, along with fruits. Objects pertaining to consumption of tea are prevalent in Antonov's still life, depicting a legacy o... (See the whole comment)

Death of SocratesDeath of Socrates
Jacques-Louis David

The great man, the questioner of premises and originator of some of the first chains of logical thoughts, meets his demise in this painting from the cup of hemlock imposed upon him by majority vote of the Athenian High Court. He remains true to his convictions to the end and, despite the despair and grief of his admirer, stands out as the most resi... (See the whole comment)

Air Force and Bald EagleAir Force and Bald Eagle
Harry Roolaart

An F-16 fighter jet is projected outward, in the direction of the viewer, flying away from a gigantic bald eagle draped in the American Flag. "Sleeping Giant Awakens" had portrayed the same eagle, a symbol of the resilient American spirit, rise from the rubble of 9/11. Presently it is the source of America's military response against its savage foe... (See the whole comment)

Atlas Does Not ShrugAtlas Does Not Shrug
Harry Roolaart

This work is a demonstration of the resilience that should rightly characterize America's response to terrorism. Atlas is in the foreground, holding up, not the world, but a gigantic American flag, indicating the eternal vigilance and effort required to sustain a free society. The rising bald eagle glances at Atlas with a sharp supervision; in all ... (See the whole comment)

Basic ShelterBasic Shelter
Quent Cordair

This painting, especially when integrated with its title, is a portrayal of the dignity that befits a rational creator man. The gleaming white villa with ornate gardens surrounding it is referred to as "basic shelter," just the beginning of the standard of living that the productive man should aspire to and expect. The glance at this expansive and ... (See the whole comment)

The utilization of color in this work is exquisite. The various shades of red, manifested by the pomegranate, the liquor bottle, the tablecloth, and the background are juxtaposed with green from the grapes and the melon. This painting is replete with detailed variety, also featuring two roses and a decorated vase. ... (See the whole comment)

The Gods of MarsThe Gods of Mars
Michael Whelan

This is a striking piece of art from well known fantasy artist Michael Whelan.  He did this piece as a book cover for 'The Gods Of Mars'.  The image shows a naked man surrounded by alien creatures with angry postures.  Yet even in this alien environment, the man is in control of the situation, as shown by fact that he's driving a sword through one ...

Thank you, Chris and Lindsey, for sharing your passion for Mario Lanza. I live in Philly, a few blocks away from this mural. While I am not familiar with his music, I can understand now why this mural exists.

Alex Grey

In reviewing the artwork on this site, I was surprised not to see Alex Grey's work on here. Many may label it 'new age' or 'super natural' but after visiting his Temple of Sacred Mirrors in NYC, meeting him in person and hearing several talks he has given, I find his work utterly grounded in the greatness and potential of humankind. His work is a... (See the whole comment)

I won't belabor Larsen's talent here, given the number of his works already on this site! But I had to post my other purchase. I will say that my favorite part of this painting (among many) is Dagny's hand on the blue-green rail. So much is contained there, and it clearly, beautifully says "mine." I also like the countryside behind, because it's no... (See the whole comment)

Stoned FaceStoned Face
A. Robert Malcom

Even in the seriousness of Art, there is humor, wherein, thru subtle and not so subtle usage, there shows the sense of malevolency in its proper format, almost as if the same used in political illustratings.  Note the bored look, the drool off the tongue, the patient stoneness of the outer, with the intimacy of the inner.  It is the first in a seri...

Project: Holiday Home - Ground FloorProject: Holiday Home - Ground Floor
Peter Cresswell

When considering a work of architecture you should definitely and as a minimum examine the floor plan and understand it. Architecture is a three-dimensional art, and proper appreciation of it only comes with appreciation of a work's three-dimensions. As Le Corbusier used to say, the plan is the generator. The plan is analogous to the musica...

DIMINISHING RETURNSDIMINISHING RETURNS
Frank O'Connor

A painting by Frank O'Connor. When I saw this painting in the companion book to AYN RAND: A SENSE OF LIFE, I fell in love with it immediately. It is playful, and seems to me like an attempt at a benevolent answer to Salvidor Dali. With all the talk about the new book THE PASSION OF AYN RAND'S CRITICS, and how Rand would have felt about it, i...

Here, form and feeling are inextricable. This is what I feel like when I'm happy - I feel like a five-year old dancing an impromptu dance because the crocus are blooming, but also with full realization that I'm a full-fledged woman who, because of her age and knowledge, loves life that much more. ...
