My Favorite Art

This is not comprehensive and I will be continually adding to this. It’s roughly in order of preference, though if it’s on here, it already blows me away.


Pallas Athena, by Rembrant van Rijn


Antigone, by Fredrick Leighton


Detail of the Virgin’s Face and Crown, by Sandro Botitcelli


Medusa, by Caravaggio (I have a very strange obsession with this one. I want this image as a pendant on a necklace.)

  1. While scrolling down the lovely list, my eye quickly registered “The Black Sash” to be by John Singer Sargent, one of my favorite artists (as well as Tamara de Lempicka). Upon reading the caption, I see that it is not by Sargent and want to thank you for introducing me Giovanni Boldini.

  2. The Black Sash, by Giovanni Boldini, I love this piece. An image of Transcendentalism.

    Die Tanzerine, Gustav Klimt; The color-scheme of this piece is perfect.

    A great selection of art here. You have great taste.

    I hope you continue to keep up with my blog. I will definitely keep up with yours.

  3. To Andy: It’s funny that you mention John Singer Sargent. I actually tried to include one of his paintings on here, “Madame X” (she looks like a vampire–I am in love with her) but for some reason when I went to publish the page it disappeared. I’m going to add it really soon, though. Boldini is a genius! Two other favorite portrait painters (my favorite kind of art, hands down) are Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres:

    and John Singleton Copley:

    To Peyton: I wasn’t expecting two people to single out “The Black Sash” but I’m looking at it again, and it really is amazing. And thank you. What I have on here isn’t very broad, it’s basically just portraits because I love portraits more than, say, landscapes (not to knock them), but I gotta add more this weekend.

    Thanks so much for the comments! Take care!
