(they had this on display at the Frick Art museum in Pittsburgh, it is an amazing painting, this and the David are the only ones I've seen in person as I recall) I like how John is depicted based on his description as an adult.

Brett Whitely is one of my favourite artists. My girlfriend bought me one of his books for Christmas, it's a beautiful book.

I saw one of Olsen's pieces, which was pretty huge, in my local gallery last year. It was amazing. I stood in awe for quite awhile. I can't find a pic of it though.

That third one of Brett Whitely's is gorgeous. I went to see an exhibition of Hans-Peter Feldmann on Saturday. Comes across as rubbish on the interbox screen, but certainly one of the better things I've come across this last year or so. The larger 'modern' gallery round here tends to be quite patchy, but this was pretty ace. I'll post some of my fave arts presently.

The Whitely stuff is cool, but the Olsen stuff doesn't do much for me.

Is the 2nd Whitely one a painting of the operahouse in Sydney, or is that just coincidence?

I did a history of aesthetics course a few years ago. Unfortunately, there was a belligerent NZ feminist who made me hate Antipodean art for a while. She would constantly hark on about how NZ had better (female) artists than Western Europe, and it was a 'conspiracy' against either women or the Antipodes that they weren't better known over here. She bought in a slide show of her favourite NZ artists, and without exception it was whollly derivative of various 20th-Century movements, 30+ years too late. I assume Olsen and Whitely are from Australia, so I'm going to change my mind on Antipodean art.

I am and always have been a big Picasso nut. I was born 9 months after he died in 1972.

3 Musicians. (I got to see this in person when MOMA sent a huge chunk of it's collection to HOuston. It was huge and awesome)\
 


and this one too.
I love how Picasso can make a painting of his lover masturbating with her titty popped out and her finger third knuckle deep in her hot pussy and it comes out so delicate and beautiful and nearly inoffensive.

When I went to Europe this summer we had delays, preventing us from spending enough time in Barcelona to go to the museum and see some Picasso stuff
