An Art thread
If you like... here you can talk of art...
meaning painting, sculpture, photography, installations

but please NOT computer art Smile

Either you can simply post related images (yours or from the web) that you find interesting

but please.... give some reference of the artist/work you're posting... so we will avoid unuseful posts "is that Caravaggio?" or similar... Smile

Also post here... if you know what you're talking about... If you dont... please ask.. .and save us retarded posts which lead to nowhere...
This is not the Pit... nor the place for you to show off with your trolling habits...
We've got plenty of boring examples on Internet...
Try to be intelligent here for once Tongue

RE: An Art thread
here is a great 'sinatra' photo by murray garrett, one of the great old time photographers that focused primarily on the performers of his time. although this is a commercial site, it provides a great reference towards photographers and their respective subjects and styles.

[Image: sinatra_studio.jpg]

this photograph in particular is of special interest as the viewer can easily detect the use of a large aperture lens ... most likely a fixed prime and a fast film ... most likely 400+ as indicated by the film grain and the brokeh effect in the fore and background without any substantial indication of motion blur.

I'm fascinated by Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński's work. Here are some of my favourites by him:
