Ok, we have a pile od favorite movies and albums types of posts; Let’s get really snooty for a bit: What are the best damn paintings ever?
My votes (for starters):
Lotto’s portrait of Andrea Odoni
Van Eyck’s St. Luke with the Virgin
Vermeer’s view of Delft
and Francis Bacon’s take on Velasquez’s Pope.
To this we can add the paintings which make us cringe in pain: Thomas Hicks’ “Peaceable Kingdom” makes me flail about in seizures. Ugh! I HATE that thing.
(sorry, there’s just been a lot of discussion of BMs and going wee-wee lately.)
