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.

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!

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 :)

Death of De Soto by Johann Mongels Culverhouse

I don't find the subject matter particularly interesting but when you see the use of color and light in this painting you can't help but like it.

The Cycle of Terror And Tragedy;September 11. 2001 by Graydon Parrish. This picture takes up an entire wall so it's hard to get a defined picture of the whole thing.

Everything by MC Escher. Most of Salvador Dali. Just about any nature shot looks great as a poster. And Edouard-Henri Avril's classical erotic works are excellent. Lotta ancient Greek sorta stuff. Am a fan of the period. :)

Another bump for Chihuly- his work is fantastic- he has a fantastic museum right at the base of the Space Needle in Seattle.
