Many of the same faves that I have. I'm not familiar with Pauline Eblé Campanelli, but that was gorgeous!

I'm up too!

Klimt is one of my favorites too. I've been oogling a large print, the same one you put up in my local art store, it's an awesome print, and large but they want 300 for it. I'm saving up. My husband thinks it's tacky, but what the hell does he know?
O'keefe is also one my favorites.
I alwasy thought "girl with a pearl earring was creepy. the girl alwayd looked so sad to me. sad, like someone was intruding upon her. I wish I could explain better.
Awesomee TT this week babe!

Great choices! Wyeth and Vettriano are two of my favorites. Klimt also has some great work! I miss my days of art class, I think I will need to take another one soon! Why not with free tuition?! :)

LOVE Monet...

Did you ever see Girl w/a Pearl Earring movie? I saw bits and pieces the other day on cable, but not enough to actually make sense out of the thing. :)

Happy TT and thanks again for introducing me to another wonderful aspect of blogging!

Very cool TT. This takes me back to the days of my college art class. O'Keefe, Klimt, Monet are among my favorites too.

I love Jack Vettriano.

I've always loved the pastel colors of Monet. If only I could afford to have one.

Robin said...

I love your choices.

Happy TT.

Karianne said...

I'm loving how you are really getting into the art again. Maybe you are going for the visual chocolate a little more these days.

My mom loves Vettriano as well.

Joan said...

Nice post! I'm glad you took the time to include pictures of some of the art.

MMMM.. O'Keefe, Vettriano, Monet, Escher, and Wyeth. I knew I liked you! There was a Wyeth I saw a print of once, something about sisters, and it was of two small boats...can't find it now, and think I must be remembering the name wrong. I WANTED that print. sigh.
Happy TT
(and thanks for the help with mine!)

the novel and/or film Girl with a Pearl Earring are terrific, if you haven't read and/or viewed it!
