Old or new. Do you have any favourites? why do you like them?

I like a quite a few. Constable, Gainsborough and Francis Danby to name a few.
Of the latter I like his paintings which seem to be either ethereal or dramatic.....

I would like to go to more exhibitions, but not many of my friends like art or are into going to galleries.

Gustave Moreau
Louis Tiffany (glass)
John Waterhouse
Claude Monet
Christopher Whall (glass)
Rene Lalique (glass/jewellery)
Alan Lee( illustrator)
Cicely Mary Barker (illustrator)
Arthur Rackam (illustrator)

If I could own one painting from any in the world I would choose The Lady Of Shallot by John Waterhouse, I love it so much but never understood why it just has a resonance within my soul.


I know that painting, it is a very beautiful one, i am sure somebody used it as a CD cover, it was harp or new age music.

I know a few websites with some good pics, here is one
