Well yeah - thanks. That just made my point. How primitive and sloppy he paints. How he mixes the colours ect. Just look at the sky and the stars. Something I would have achieved with crayons in Kindergarden.

Nah - these "Modernists" like Van Gogh and Chagal all lead to those sickos like Picasso, Kandinsky ect.

Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas:

Pierre-Auguste Renoir:

Vincent van Gogh:

Alphonse Maria Mucha:

These are my primary favorites, but there are many others. I'm a fan of impressionism, obviously, and Art Nouveau. I also adore maritime painters, renaissance and some ultra-modern. Art, for me, has always been something I felt and experienced rather than something I viewed.

Wehrmacht, you are not alone in your distaste for the impressionists and modernists. Many feel as you do, but art is a very personal experience. Van Gogh's genius, in my humble opinion, was not in his accuracy as defined by mirror images and perfect spheres, but in his mind's eye. We get to see the world as he does - a little dark, a little distorted, and a little chaotic at times, but always striking. Sometimes that striking blur results in disgust, as in your case. Sometimes, it results in the viewer's ability to see the world a little differently.

Art is for the artist to define for himself. The best artist always creates for himself with his personal vision as his only guide. The worst art is always created with commercial value and mass-appeal in mind, except in the case of Alphonse Mucha, perhaps. His art was, in fact, created as mass advertising, but he managed to make it enchanting to even the most hardened art snob. No small feat.

Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Edvard Munch... Impressionism, Modern Style, Art Deco, Futurism, Dada, Surrealism & more. I'm also very keen on almost everything avant-garde.

This is one of my favourite paintings, "The Beach at Sainte-Adresse" (oil on canvas, 1867) by Monet:

You got to be kidding. Van Gogh had a distorted perception of reality and Pollock's painting look like something a chimp would do.

Rembrandt showed talent. Look at the detail in his work. Even Renoir and Monet are pleasant to look at.

I don't have a single favorite but I like these:

Leonardo da Vinci

There's something Aryan about a linear style; I mean the sort of 'line' we see in Durer's woodcuts.
I also like a contemporary of his, called Urs Graf. He also did many woodcuts, mostly on a military theme.

I trace this linear style back to the Runes.

Each Rune is a pictogram, a venerable linear symbol.
In a row, these Runes look like a forest.

Scratch those Runes on your Blade, Brother!
