I'm not sure which one of Chris Ofili's painting might be the best because he is one of my favourite artists of all time, but the one below is in my top 3 for sure. It's called 'Afro Jezebel' and it is a thing of blinding beauty:

it is a piece by gordon matta-clark called Conical Intersect ... he carved a cone out of one of the buildings that was being torn down to build the Centre Pompidou.




 



here is gordon using a grid to section up his hair, give himself a hair cut, and catalog the clippings according to some esoteric numbering system.


 


a dreadlocked budle of it (along with photos and pages from a notebook explaining the grid system) were part of the whitney's matta-clark retrospective last summer.

What's the title of that one? It is hot.

They didn't have any of his nudes at the Frick museum exhibit. I think it was because American art purchasers were more conservative in the Victorian era. I love the use of lighting on the foreground woman's back, I like high contrast between light and dark areas.

It's called Nymphes et Satyre, 1873.
I first encountered his work visiting a site where I had landed after looking for John William Waterhouse stuff.
Tons of things there, guess you could enjoy it :

I'm gonna look for Chris Ofili's work, as what sarra's posted looks really beautiful.

I figured those were nymphs, funny you mention Waterhouse, when I saw that I thought of "Hylas and the Nymphs"

 


I've always had a prejudice against Waterhouse from this painting, because the nymph turning her head looks like my 2nd oldest sister, who used to be very mean to me when I was a kid. This image of the painting I might add is a little off, I've seen higher quality images of it in the books where you can much better tell they are all redheads, and the exact same hue as my sister's hair.

...i don't usually like more 'traditional' stuff, but this Manet is an exception.

 


...partly because i dig this sculptural version by Seward Johnson...

That Manet is pretty classic. Makes me think of the movie "Road to Wellville"

from wikipedia
"
The elusiveness of Las Meninas, according to Dawson Carr, "suggests that art, and life, are an illusion". The relationship between illusion and reality were central concerns in Spanish culture during the 17th century, figuring largely in Don Quixote: the best-known work of Spanish Baroque literature. In this respect, Calderón de la Barca's poem Life is a Dream is commonly seen as the literary equivalent of Velázquez's painting:
What is a life? A frenzy. What is life?
A shadow, an illusion, and a sham.
The greatest good is small; all life, it seams
Is just a dream, and even dreams are dreams"

There's so many better Dali pieces than Persistence of Memory.

I have The Temptation of Saint Anthony tattooed.
