    If it's freaky enough, it'll get stuck in my brain, eternally.

    It was a lucky catch, practically no one ever mentions Matthias Grünewald, though he was probably one of the first predecessors of 'expressionism', centuries before the movement was created.

    Bosch was the same for surrealism.

    I love his crucifixions mostly, here are a couple details:

    Looks like Gustav Dore's engravings for Don Quixote.

    Portrait of J.Y.M II - Frank Auerbach

    There's a quote by John Singer Sargent I found amusing:
    "Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend."

    Yet his paintings seem very aesthetically soothing and practically uninteresting, this quote seems to work better considering the painter above for ex.

    I liked this painting of his though, mostly because of the ecstatic(?) humanoid(?) in the background. This creepy weirdo looks suspicious.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    By far, Paul Klee is my favorite painters. Each time I cross one of his works, even a very small watercolor in a large museum room, it captures my sight and the outside world vanishes. Abstraction is so difficult to master well.




    Close to him, I also like Nicolas de Staël:

    And among others, you have Albrecht Dürer:



    And Jacob van Ruysdael



    And Willem de Kooning:



    And Claude Monet, of course

    One century ago, we usually had snow in Paris each year, and the Seine would often freeze. Monet painted that many times.

    Today, with global warming (for those who don't think this phenomenon is true)... well... when we have -2°C in Paris (->28°F), we say it's "very cold" here. And we have palm trees growing everywhere in gardens and even as street trees.

    So you know, even impressionist paintings can be used as a proof something is deeply wrong with climate.

    Interesting selection -except for Jacob van Ruysdael, sorry, but nah...- mostly Paul Klee. I just re-embarked researching him yesterday. I think that's one to ponder upon, very 'ambiguous':
