    Small Self-Portrait(c. 1657) Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn


    I think this is one of the most beautiful self-portraits he ever painted. The manner in which he unsparingly depicts the marks of life on his face with the help of an unbelievably free application of paint. This self-portrait conveys in a double sense an image of the destruction of the face, on one hand the destruction to which the face has been subjected by the process of aging on the other hand, it is a violation of the likeness through the brutal use of brush and paint.

    Portrait Of The Painter Karl Zakovsek(1910) Egon Schiele


    Schiele's muted palette underscoring the subject's melancholy mood. Though the sitter is dressed formal, in a three-piece suit, he is shirtless: the quintessential picture of the impoverished artist.

    i dont know if this directly fits into this thread but i love what Theo Jansen is doing right now, they called him the "DaVinci of the new age". He calls himself a kinetic sculptor, and what he does is create this massive machines that function and move just by the wind. its amazing. i advise anyone whos interested look him up on youtube.

    An art installation called Convergence by Valerie Wedel. </p>

    </p>

    The installation conveyed a sense of calmness and serenity throughout as I walked in it. I felt like I was in a waterfall or the sea, but the entire thing was captivating. There's another piece Wedel did last autumn which was similar to this one. </p>

    I would love to see this confirmed. I have said over and over that Poell strikes me as the fashion counterpart to the Vienna Aktionists. This is what initially drew me to his clothes.</p>[quote user="justine"][quote user="AKA*NYC"]

    I saw it years ago in person at the Francis Bacon retrospective in San Francisco. In a way it's starkly different than his other work but thematically it's as Bacon as it gets... :)</p>

    Pope Innocent X(1650) Diego Velázquez


    Study after Velazquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X(1953) Francis Bacon


    Talking about Francis Bacon, during the 50s and early 60s he did several studies after one of the most striking papal portraits I have ever come across. This I think is important in how this portrait is pursued today.The striking part is not because of the popes unique personality, his inhumaness, the combination of heroic power and corruption, but because of the opposite of uniqueness: Of what he has in common with other human beings. The human condition. How Velázquez ever got away with this is interesting.

    Diego, that Klimt is my favourite from him.</p>

    I must admit that I too am a Francis Bacon worshipper, however if I were to mention my favourite of all time, it has to be this one from Odilon Redon, "The Eye Like a Strange Balloon Mounts toward Infinity", 1882.</p>
