Taking a friend on a walk around our town, admiring the buildings and decorative embellishments on them, I dragged teh poor lass into our local art gallery to show her a specific painting.
During our walk I'd been rabbiting on about painitngs from the industrial revolution, in particular, the paintings of John Martin. I know I've prattled on about him on these boards before and am equally sure you'll be totally bored hearing about him, but I mentioned also Philip de Loutherbourg and when she saw the paintings she was impressed.
Enough of that rubbish, are there any specific painters or paintings you like and would like to mention? Again, I know many have said on previous threads but hey, that was a while ago, let's re-open the conversation, what do you like and why?
