Hello Linschoten, great to hear from you!
Art Deco is a weird style in general, I've never liked it but am beginning to come round a little (the Poirot series, probably :)) There seem to be few painters in the style, if you happen to come across anyone from Britain please post.

Hello Annelouise :)
Well Łempicka is quite unique and very decorative (she must have fitted marvellously into 1920s apartments)

I like Porot's flat, but I wouldn't like to live in it, I like lots of clutter, with old things covering every available surface and piles of books on the floor!

James Barry (11 October 1741 – 22 February 1806), Irish painter, best remembered for his six part series of paintings entitled The Progress of Human Culture in the Great Room of the Royal Society of Arts. Because of his determination to create art according to his own principles rather than those of his patrons, he is also noted for being one of the earliest romantic painters working in Britain, though as an artist few rated him highly until the fully comprehensive 1983 exhibition at the Tate Gallery led to a reassessment of this "notoriously belligerent personality", who emerges as one of the most important Irish Neoclassical artists. He was also a profound influence on William Blake.

I like the self-portrait.

I agree, I also like the self-portrait. I also like the way he goes against the norm. Even though the king Lear piece is based in Britain, there's a strong Mediterranean feel to it which is interesting. It's as if he is comparing a British tragedy to a Greek one.
