    Hey Sixes, do you really like those paintings, man?? :huh:
    Just kidding :D

    Here's three paintings of Matisse. Matisse and Rembrandt are the artists that I appreciate the most. And then is Picasso, but he does not count as he was extra terrestrial.

    Yes, I do, but I also have an attraction to horror and surrealism. Any thing that sparks the imagination.

    Love the Rembrandt! :ok:

    He's considered to be the founder of the movement, he wrote the Surrealist Manifesto & I also enjoyed Nadja..

    Excellent. I'll remember that and see if I can find some time to read some of his :)

    About Beksinski...His wife died, a year later his son committed suicide and six years later Beksinski was murdered. Talk about tragedy :blink:

    The atmosphere is glorious in those paintings. I particularly like "Autumn Morning"

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    Those are some fantastic paintings, Foro.

    I love those. He did a lot of Leeds, but they bear little resemblance to the Leeds of today ;)
    Whitby hasn't changed enormously, though

    Wow, those are really nice! I guess the perspectives get a bit old after a while (it's always the same type of street view), but the guy certainly knows how to capture an atmosphere.
    I especially like the Liverpool one. But as I said before, you can put an old sailing ship into anything and get me with it. :)
