Post favorite paintings

My personal favorite is "Christ in the Desert" by Ivan Kramskoi, even though I'm not religious. It's strangely soothing.

I don't even know who drew it, but its mesmerizing.

I'm no expert, but what I remembered was a fondness for Rothko. So I choose Number 61 by Mark Rothko.

I like this Rothko as well. Very minimalistic.

As an opposition to OP's pic, I have this one (which I don't know the name of), by Bjarne Melgaard.


I like expressionism very much, this is Die Stadt by Jacob Steinhardt

I've seen the original one in Florence, it was indeed nice.

I was about to post that one too and then I saw your post. It really is a nice painting, it looks more like a photo in the sense of capturing the moment.


To any anons who love art, I want to ask:

How do you get into it? I would love to explore all kinds of art and find artists I love but I guess besides buying a textbook, I don't know what to do. I was taking a Khan Academy course on art for a while, but like so many things in my life, I never finished…


First, know what types of mediums are there.

Second, explore them and find the artist name to the piece you like and search up their biography and work.

Third, find some books showing the works of these artist.

It's really simple, Anon.

I love Klimt's paintings.

Hurra hurra hurra,
Hurra Germania.

This was a painting done after the beginning of the First World War by Friedrich August von Kaulbach. It depicts Germania, the female embodiment of Germany (essentially the Deutschland-chan of 100 years ago) in a battle stance. The two-headed eagle, a long-time German icon, which was also the symbol of the Holy Roman Empire, is seen on the shield.

Ist echt schön, oder?


Oops. The eagle on the shield doesn't actually have two heads. But still, it's called the Reichsadler and can be depicted with two heads.


Austria and Russia featured double-headed eagles in their heraldry so they probably wanted to make Germany's eagle distinct from those two empires.
