What are your favorite artworks? Answered

So, I was looking through a book and I found this amazingly detailed (and freaky) painting called "Arnolfini Marriage". Lot's of weird messages behind it. Anyway, here I have enclosed some of my favorite artworks I have seen. I want you to do the same with your comments. 1. Johanness van Eyck - "Arnolfini Marriage" 2. Leonardo Da Vinci - "Mona Lisa" 3. Edvard Munch - "The Scream"

1. M.C. Escher-Not even going to try to name a favorite, "Hand With Reflecting Globe" is pictured, but not necessarily my favorite. My dream mansion features a room completely covered in Escher prints. I'd throw people I don't like in there, and their heads would explode.

Haha. You're welcome.

No, the sad part is I typed THIS from memory:

I got me a hundred gigabytes of RAM/I never feed trolls and I don't read spam/installed a T1 line in my house/always at my PC double clickin on my mizzouze/upgrade my system at least twice a day/I'm strictly plug and play./I ain't afraid of Y2K/I'm down with Bill Gates I call him "money" for short/I phone him up at home and I make him do my tech support!

I'll stop here...

My favorite work, no doubt, is the mona lisa. When I saw her live, I realized that art is perfect, it conveys an incredible reality.

There is a piece that I really like, but I can't remember the artist nor what it was titled, but it shows the artist painting/drawing himself (pipe in mouth IIRC) painting/drawing himself on a still smaller canvas, drawing himself on a still smaller one....

I quite like An Experiment On A Bird in an Air Pump by Joseph Wright, but the things I have on my office wall (apart from my Robot plaque) are simply shapes or patterns to stare at while I think.

I keep a copy of the second image below on the wall above my desk because it so clearly demonstrates the nature of my job (it looks more impressive printed about 20cm wide).
