Gallery: Some of My Favorite Classic Fine Art

"Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh

For me, art speaks to me in as many volumes as any book. This painting to the left by Vincent Van Gogh has defined the meaning of fine art. I can get lost in the flow of the sky, lost in the stars, play in the hills, and see myself within the town below. this painting to me is more about a feeling then a conveyance of a verbal theme.

"Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" By Georges Seurat

To your right, you will see one of the most amazing paintings I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in person at The Art Institute of Chicago in the 1980’s by Georges Seurat. The enormity of the painting is what first caught my attention. Then, of course, the tiny points that make up the full painting come into focus the closer you get.

"El Vendador de Alcatraces" by Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera captures the beauty and personality of a local flower vendor to the left. The centering and flow of this painting meet in a symphony of perfection.

"Tree of Life" By Gustav Klimt

To the right, you see “Tree of Life” by Gustav Klimt c. 1909. This image has been reinterpreted many times throughout time. I find this painting to be one of the more interesting renditions. The flow without tangles, the multicolored patchwork, the endless spiral. I feel this painting speaks more about humanity itself then the artist’s opinion of it.

There you have it…my first gallery of my favorite art. Look soon for my next gallery installment with some of my favorite modern art pieces.
