I am new to the subject of visual art. I was struck by the intensity of the work of an artist called Ilya Repin. I don't know what it is about his work; it just captivates my imagination.

Post art which captivates your imagination.

This is Repin's most famous art work probably.

I like his one with the coassacks reply to the Ottoman Sultan.

Sultan Mehmed IV to the Zaporozhian Cossacks:
I, the Sultan, son of Mohamed, brother of the Sun and Moon, grandson and vicegerent of God, sovereign of all kingdoms: of Macedonia, Babylonia, and Jerusalem, of Upper and Lower Egypt: king of kings, ruler of all that exists; extraordinary, invincible knight; constant guardian of the grave of Jesus Christ; trustee of God himself; hope and comfort of Moslems, confusion and great protector of Christians, command you, the Zaporozhian Cossacks, to surrender to me voluntarily and without any kind of resistance, and don't permit yourselves to trouble me with your attacks!

— Turkish Sultan Mohamed
Zaporozhians – to the Turkish Sultan:
You Turkish Satan, brother and comrade of the damned devil and secretary to Lucifer himself! What the hell kind of knight are you? The devil shits and you and your army swallow it. You aren't fit to have the sons of Christians under you; we aren't afraid of your army, and we'll fight you on land and sea.
You Babylonian busboy, Macedonian mechanic, Jerusalem beerbrewer, Alexandrian goatskinner, swineherd of Upper and Lower Egypt, Armenian pig, Tatar goat, Kamenets hangman, Podolian thief, grandson of the Evil Serpent himself, and buffoon of all the world and the netherworld, fool of our God, swine's snout, mare's assle, butcher's dog, unbaptized brow, may the devil steam your ass!
That's how the cossacks answer you, you nasty glob of spit! You're unfit to rule true Christians. We don't know the date because we don't have a calendar, the moon is in the sky, and the year is in a book, and the day is the same with us as with you, so go kiss our butt!

— Chief Hetman Zaxarcenko with all the Zaporozhian Host


This one really struck a chord with me. Perhaps because I have issues with my own father.

Ivan the Terrible and his son. Just the look in the father's face after he murdered his own son.

i like old japanese woodblock prints. every year or so i will spend a few days looking at them. i like the architectural and woodworking details. the text boxes are also interesting if you read manga. the styles are fun looking and don't seem too serious. the colors are pretty. the scenes are interesting

Cyberpunk aesthetic in art always interested me.

The synthesis of high and low tech in art interests me and captivates my imagination.

Striking painting.

What a joy it would be to time travel. God. To see the past. Maybe it's a stupid thing to say but Morrissey seems to be right when he says 'There is no poetry in modern life.'


could you give me a link to more paintings/artists like this?

i like 19th and early 20th century illustrators, especially when the art has fantasy or oriental elements to it


What location is this? What did the artist and critics have to say about this painting? There's definitely a strong mood here.


briggate shopping district of leeds, england. the artist, atkinson grimshaw, has loads of similar works from later on in his career, foggy london urban and landscape paintings. he was a very successful artist from the start so probably everyone had something good to say about it

For me it's El Greco.

Since Ilya Repin and Roerich have already been mentioned, my other favourite artist of the twentieth century has to be Andrew Wyeth. His lonely and austere regional portrayals of early settler American life really strike a note with me.

Also, wonderful thread.
