the Menil Collection in Houston has a huge collection of some of Magritte's best shit.
The DeMenil's were friends and early collectors of his.

Gregor Schneider: Dead House must be the thing I liked the most in the last few years.

"
Dead House ur features an obsessively altered version of Schneider’s childhood house in Rheydt, Germany. Schneider has been dismantling and reassembling the house’s interior since he was 16. Layering walls on walls, adding dead-end corridors and secret passageways, living within the work and constantly revising it, he has created a haunting depiction of domestic memory. His duplicated rooms both resemble and conceal the original spaces, and so many changes have been made that Schneider can no longer reconstruct the original layout."

simply INSANE to experience

http://www.gregorschneider.de/biography.php
a few vids are up on his site, I doubt they can convey the feelings of this thing..

ps search for totes haus and venice biennale to see the same thing I saw.

Pretty much anything by Hopper is hideously depressing, but surely that's what makes him so great.

As for Picasso, I'm not much of a fan but the Guernica is something else.

I like Hopper's paintings. they have that cool film noir air around them. He pays great attention to angles.

The first one is cool. The 2nd seems a little too messagey to me. Is that a skirt or a lamp shade in the 3rd one?

These are three artists who I would call my favourites.



 


Anselm Kiefer Palmsonntag 2006
Mixed media Dimensions variable © the artist

Grande Anthropophagie bleue
Hommage à Tennessee Williams
, 1960
(Large blue anthropophagy, Homage to Tennessee Williams)
Grande bataille [Great battle]
Pure pigment and synthetic resin
on paper marouflaged to canvas -276 x 418 cm
Centre Pompidou, Musée national d'art moderne Collection
© Adagp, Paris 2007



 

The Rothko Room, Tate Modern


Tate © Kate Rothko Prizel and Christopher Rothko/DACS 2006
"When I say that my paintings are Western, what I mean is that they seek the concretization of no state that is without the limits of western reason, no esoteric, extra-sensory or divine attributes to be achieved by prayer & terror.Those who can claim that these [limits] are exceeded are exhibiting self-imposed limitations as to the tensile limits of the imagination within those limits. In other words, that there is no yearning in these paintings for Paradise, or divination.On the contrary they are deeply involved in the possibility of ordinary humanity." -Mark Rothko

Yes, it's the Sydney Opera house.

I just had a great overwhelming feeling and urge, just then, to go to Sydney again real soon, Newtown inparticular.

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.

Yeah they're both Australian artists. There's a Whitely piece in my local gallery called 'Summer at Carcoar'. It's marvellous. I couldn't find a big enough pic on the net that shows the beauty of it in detail though.

I'm glad you guys like them.

I really like that one of the Olgas; he almost turns them into phallae, or whatever the plural of phallus is.


edit: I should've just written "phallic symbols".

How did I immediately know that was a Russian painting? I immediately thought to myself "that looks like it is right out of a Dostoevsky novel." The attention to detail is great here, I love the carpet and the way it is bunched up.

I saw this at the museum in St. Louis, so I can picture it in my head, and I should have taken your word for it when you said you couldn't find a photo of it anywhere...because I had to look through 60 pages of Flickr just to find the top half of the painting (which I personally have an issue with, because it's words and all of that).



 


I'm still looking, but I doubt I'll find the bottom.

You can see it at a distance (on the right) in this picture.
And it is totally being mauled by Richter.
