I like this one:

Pablo Picasso, Two Women Running on the Beach

I'm not quite sure why I like it so much. Perhaps it's the joy that the women seem to be experiencing, or the sense of uninhibited freedom.

Hmm, let me see; two half-naked women, running on a beach, hand in hand. It does bear an insinuation...
Or maybe you like plump women?
Sorry, couldn't resist myself.

Seriously now, the painting does emit a sense of flowing joy and freedom. Nice one.

Great light technique. Who is the artist?


Tjadams, very nice paintings by Bouguereau. That's a new name for me. Thank you.

Vera, your mother was an incredible painter. I like her art very much. You must be very proud of her.

I liked mostly the "Tree Branch"

I also like these paintings of her:

"An old Mill"

Thank you, Solidaire. Both paintings you added are hanging in my living room, and are among my favorites, too.

Re: Favourite Paintings - an intimate Historum gallery


There are many artists and paintings I love, such as Caravaggio:-

This one's in Trinity College, Dublin.

I don't like cubism, or abstracts. Generally, I prefer the Pre-Raphaelites.
