If you could have any three original paintings...

... to hang up somewhere in your home, which ones would you choose? You can't turn around and sell them or profit from them in any way. They are just yours to admire.

Tom Thompson's The Jack Pine for the first.

A VanGogh Cypresses

The third I'd have to think about.

Re: If you could have any three original paintings...

This is a tough question to answer, as there are just too many I admire and would love to own (most likely in my dreams) but I've managed to come up with three which are all subject to change. In no particular order:

-Self Portrait at the age of 63 by Rembrandt


-Cenotaph to the memory of Sir Joshua Reynolds by John Constable


-Virginia Woolf by Vanessa Bell
