L'Ange du Foyer, by Max Ernst
This painting is so striking and animated, yet the agony I seen in that creature is so articulated I'm somewhat stunned. It never fails to capture my attention every time I see it.
The next painting that has always had my attention is this one.
Persistence of Memory
This paiting is by Salvador Dali I'm constantly perplexed by the meaning of this painting. Time is always such a strange subject, putting its essence into a painting seems to complicate the idea.
I hope you like my selections. Think about concepts and ideas that interest you and see if you can find paintings that represent those ideals. You might be very surprised at what you find!
