the boy is enamored with the mona lisa. the other night he said his dream in life is to see it. so i was online today (home sick with the girl) looking for a mona lisa poster. in doing so i ran across these, some old friends that i love, others newer (to me) works that i like.
historically i've been an impressionist lover, mainly because my art teacher in high school, huge influence on my life, turned me on to them. however i've since discovered these.
klimt's the kiss---lovely.
almond branches in bloom--van gogh, one of my faves but his isn't his typical look, i think that's why i'm drawn to it.
then there is magritte and Hokusai Katsushika. i don't even know what it is about their work but i find it interesting.
