    Any type of art, popular or not, what's your favorite works of art?


    I normally don't like anything with an industrial feel to it but for some reason I like this painting by Georgia O'Keeffe.

    East River from the 30th story of the Shelton Hotel 1928.

    This isn't usually what I like, but I'm really taken with it for some reason. I'm usually for more muted colors, and pastoral type settings.

    Glass artwork by Dale Chihuly. Picture doesn't do it justice.

    Phipp's Conservatory has several Chihuly displays on permanent display and they are truly breath taking. I am fascinated my glass sculptor.

    Cool thread btw!

    The Last Day of Pompeii. Karl Briullov

    I've always found the detail and use of color in this painting to be hauntingly beautiful.

    A New Britain Museum of American Art has this one on display, it's gorgeous! I love blue glass so I was in awe when I saw this.

    Thanks :)
