Very hard question...i suppose the 'Pieta' by michelangelo
i'd love to see itone day and not just in a book....
i can never decide which takes more skill, painting or sculpting?..lol. i recon painting takes a lot of skill, but to scupt something realist takes bloody genius...what does everyone else think?

I don't want to get into a debate about this, I mean, each to their own and all, but how on earth is Tracey Emin talented in any way?

She produces naff pieces of what is basically complete shite.

I like Tracy Emin as well, but everyone is entitled to an opinion, I resent that people resort to using base words to retort.


Ive always had an afinity for Deigo Velasquez and this painting Las Meninas, 1656-57.

It's nice to see there are other Magritte 'fans' on this forum. Also, that others share my love of surrealism. Who went to the surrealism exhibit at the Tate Modern a few summers ago? (The exhibit's name is escaping me at the moment...)

My fav. Magritte is one called 'The Kiss.'

I also love Kandinsky's work. I have a huge framed print of 'St.George I' that I've had since I was about 15 and never want to part with!

Anyone familiar with Christian Schad (German early 20thC) ? I have a poster from an exhibition at UofC that I adore, but I don't really know anything about him as an artist.

Call me old fashioned, but I judge whatever art on the way it makes me feel (how selfish, eh?) Some computer-generated pieces are good, but I don't have the same intensity of feeling as I get when seeing a piece and thinking of the labour that went into that ONE piece (and here I am looking at it, thinking about it, appreciating it).

Art is a personal thing and I think it's nice to share what we like and appreciate, even if we don't agree necessarily.

There is a contradiction in what you are saying. You start by saying that you judge the art on how it makes you feel and then try and justify it by discussing what you know of its production (the labour that went into producing it). If you didn't know how each piece was produced would you feel the same way towards them. This is an important point in aesthetics as there is a lot of argument between theorists who believe in purely emotional responses and those who see a more sociological response. These days the former is rather looked down on for good reason.
