  1. I love Bosch. There is so much going on! Incredible detail and you could spend years on the iconography.
    Garden of Earthly Delights triptych
  2. Also it's a little twisted. 😏
  3. Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Again, so much going on and I love the broad, flat faces and peasant scenes from the late medieval period.
    Children's Games
  4. Trés Riches Heures du Duc du Berry
    Late medieval, French Gothic, I love paintings where they haven't really figured out perspective yet and you can see the artists playing with size and shape and form.
  5. Madonna with the Long Neck by Parmigiano
    I love the mannerist bodies, they all look like they have extra vertebrae and are twisted in unnatural positions.
  6. La Grand Odalisque by Ingres
    Again, extra long back, realistic but distorted, playing with form after the perfection of the renaissance.
  7. Mickalene Thomas. I saw a few of her pieces in a special exhibit in Savannah. I love her colors, the collage nature of these pieces, and the size-full wall size paintings! Also look how similar it is to the Ingres ⬆️
    A Little Taste Outside of Love
  8. Hudson River on My Mind
    I love the combination of style and pattern here.
  9. Michelangelo's sculptures in the Medici cathedral.
    Again, moving towards mannerism, I love how MICHELANGELO is moving away from the perfection of, say, the David.
  10. The Bolt(The Lock) by Fragonard
    This is probably my favorite painting. The color and the passion and ALL THAT FABRIC!!!
  11. The Last Supper/ Duccio
    I love the attempts at perspective here. It's far more interesting to me than later works that were far more realistic. The angle of the table also reminds me a little of a flat lay for Instagram.
  12. Guernica/Picasso
    It's just fabulous to look at.
  13. The Raft of the Medusa/Gericault
  14. Day of the Gods/Gauguin
    The colors are perfect. Gaugin has such a terrific way of painting people that doesn't distract from the glorious color.
