Nice one Angela!
Here's another one of my favorites:
The Tower of Babel
by Pieter Bruegel
Great one. Forgot about Bruegel.
You know, when I was a teen-ager, my teachers were intellectually oriented nuns from a French Canadian order: big emphasis on the French language, French philosophy (not just Descartes and Voltaire, but the existentialists. How many Catholic schoolgirls were reading "The Plague" in French, I wonder? ) It extended to French art, mostly of the Impressionist school. I still like some of it, (again, really only in the flesh), but not to the extent I once did.
One of my old favorites which I still like:
Renoir: Girl by the Seashore
Millet's "The Gleaners" is one of my all time favorites of any genre:
You're right. I couldn't begin to list them all, but certain styles, certain artists have appealed to me more at certain points in my life than at others.
I've quite gone off impressionist paintings of delicate women in long dresses in flower gardens, and as I'm sure you know, I love flower gardens, and as should be obvious here, I'm a sentimentalist and romantic. Maybe part of it is that so much modern impressionism consists of bad copies of the originals.
