Next to a wide window that opens to a magnificent city view sits a thinker with pencil in hand. He has a satisfied smirk on his face, indicating that he has reached a crucial insight or produced a work of immense value. The viewer is not aware of the man's precise profession, but in this fact may be contained the message that such an attitude and s...

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)

The fruits in this bowl are amazingly rich; one can see the sparkle of the dark grapes and the little droplets of moisture on the grapes and peach. The background is also appealing; it supplies a warm reddish light to further emfasize the fruits and their allure. ... (See the whole comment)

Study for Among the CloudsStudy for Among the Clouds
Bryan Larsen

This skyscraper is monumental, exceeding everything else by the majority of its height. It penetrates through the clouds and rises toward the stars, suggesting that Man's elevation is limited only by the extent of his initiative and exertion. This painting is a worthwhile vision of a future of ever-expanding human freedom and opportunity, and provi... (See the whole comment)

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)

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)

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)

Sleeping Giant AwakensSleeping Giant Awakens
Harry Roolaart

This is a proud statement of defiance in response to the September 11th tragedy. Amid the desolate rubble of the World Trade Center, which should have, in the terrorists' designs, brought about despair and hopelessness, stands a solitary fireman, with his hands proudly on his hips, determined to dispose of the mess and regain mastery of the situati...

Harry Roolaart

This Roolaart work is a masterpiece in digital art and juxtaposition. A gilded titan is featured in the center, draped in the U.S. flag (a symbol of the country as it can and should be), and holding up a gleaming dollar sign, the means toward his prominence. He seems to be poised to swing the sign forward, as if it would propel him onward in his en... (See the whole comment)

View of DelftView of Delft
Johannes Vermeer

This Vermeer work is more macroscopic in scale than the majority of his paintings, yet still maintains Vermeer's mastery of depicting light and texture. One can vividly imagine oneself transported to Delft in Vermeer's day and standing upon the opposite shore of the river, looking onto the city and perceiving numerous layers of buildings and bridge...

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 Role of GovernmentThe Role of Government
Harry Roolaart

Harry Roolaart is a fotografic artist who wishes to convey principles of Objectivism and patriotism through his works. This image skillfully juxtaposes American troops disembarking in foreign territory with The Constitution as a background, implying that the legitimate function of government is indeed to defend its citizens against force and exert ...

The AstronomerThe Astronomer
Johannes Vermeer

Vermeer's Astronomer depicts a man industriously concentrating on his studies, illuminated by a dim but warm light from the window facing him. As is his distinction, Vermeer instantly facilitates a focus of attention onto the central objects of his depiction, the astronomer, his books, and his globe. ... (See the whole comment)

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 is yet another work by Mr. Antonov, painted with vivid realism, to the extent that these fruits represent the essence and the ideal of their kind, as proper art should strive to portray. The logical ornamentation, the masterful depiction of light and shadow, and the abundance of detail in this painting almost cause one to hunger for the fruits... (See the whole comment)

How Far WeHow Far We've Come
Bryan Larsen

I very much like this painting.  Weightlessness definitely allows for a different composition than in a regular old Earth-bound scene.  There is a sense of freedom and accomplishment in this painting, but this is interesting because it's a painting of the future with the title "How Far We've Come."  So it seems very optimistic in that it's showing ...

Young Girl Defending herself against LoveYoung Girl Defending herself against Love
William Bouguereau

She's pushing Cupid back, but is really just playing with him.  Youth flirting with adulthood, maybe? I also like the composition of this painting.  If you follow the lines of the girl's legs and lower body, then her upper body, head, and the top of the tree above her, you see a bow shape.  A parallel bow shape is described by Cupid's body a...
