Talking is this cheating?

1) Calder

2) Escher

3) it depends...

was the need to impose order
on the confusion caused by intelligence.

Thumbs up

If I had to give a list of artists I am interested in, these would have to be on it.

Willem DeKooning
William T. Wiley
Jan Steen
Pieter Bruegal
Bernaert van Orley
Luigi Piranesi
Peter Saul
Robert Crumb
Ivan Albright
Chris Ware
Vija Celmins
Richard Pousette-Dart
Rudolfo Bresden


I am totally flummoxed that any art savvy peson could take Kincaid seriously, especially as a favorite. His "work" makes my skin crawl no matter how financially successful his business is.

Michaleangelo, for his sculpture
and... uhhh....
I know my favorite art works but do not know the name of the artists...
Actualy my second fave is not a famouse artist, she resides in elfwood and does breathtakeing water colors that are japanime in origin however take on a life of their own....

The last one is an anonumous artist, he did the Victory Angel, i think it was a statue of the godess nike after a victory in athens. Very anchient, missing head and arms, but breathtaking even in its incomplete state.
