Ilya Repin: Reply Of The Zaporozhian Cossacks To Sultan Mehmed IV of The Ottoman Empire

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reply_of_the_Zaporozhian_Cossacks#/media/File:Ilja_Jefimowitsch_Repin_009.jpg


That's one of my favourites, too.

I find it difficult impossible to choose a single favourite painting from any period, but I'm a great fan of the Pre-Raphaëlites. This ranks very highly among them.



Ooh, I like that^

I love landscapes with epic brooding thunderstorms. This is Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast by Albert Bierstadt



There's another one I like, but don't know the name of to look it up: a tall ship trapped in arctic ice with a black storm over hills and a polar bear in one corner. I'd love to find what it was and get a print of it someday.


It is a moody and moving piece. I can see  why it grabs you.

 Have you tried google reverse images ?  If you find the picture,  copy n  paste the picture in  or the http  and it  searches for it online .  


Just tried a different sort of keyword search again, and here it is: An Arctic Summer: Boring Through the Pack in Melville Bay

There was an artist named Cole, who did a series of paintings on the ages of man. The first one is of childhood, with Heaven in the background...don't recall the name, but I likes it...Wink

There is a virtual gallery dedicated to the works of Thomas Cole,
featuring his Voyage of Life series, here :

Some history and discussion of these works can be found there.

Cole is still very popular up here in the Kaatskills of New York
and, if you have a GPS unit handy, you may visit many of the
places where he, along with many other artists of the Hudson
River School
, set up easels along the trails at North-South
Lake Park
.

What is your favorite painting from the 1800's ?

Arnold Böcklin's Isle of the Dead.

It's very hard to pick a 'true' favourite as there are so many to choose from. Apart from the Cezanne I chose early on in the thread there are still heaps of others I really like.

I am another vote for the Pre-Raphaelites, also like Klimt, and some of the Fauves, the 'Blue Rider' school (It is a pity that the cream of the 'Blue Rider' school were killed in WWI.), and I quite like that Mucha a few pages back - very Art Nouveau!
 
You could probably tell from most of my choices that I am very much a colourist - think Kandinsky - but am more inclined to favour individual paintings than necessarily all the artists' work. Some 'Blue' & 'Rose' period Picasso for example, but not all his genres. I also find that to some extent the character of the artist also influences my choices - Picasso was right bastard, for example, but Marc Chagall was not!
