    Post your favorite artist

    I have decided to open a new tread with art as I have noticed that there are members who love art and who can’t resist hijacking a tread with art…..myself included. Love can be selfish, indeed. Secondly, after spending time with religion and mythology I need to get my balance back. I also want to look at paintings of artists posted on the art game that I am not familiar with. I like the art game tread very much.

    Anyway, I would like to invite you to post your favorite painting, photography, dance, or any other art that inspires you. I wrote dance too because when I see a beautiful paintings or photography I want to dance with joy. We also don’t have a dance and photography tread.

    Hey, you must be very lucky if you can paint like Andre Derain or Théodore Chasseriau.
    I would be happy if I were you.

    I didn't know Balthus's art. I am not surprised that some of his paintings raised controversy.

    I think he meant the horses, which although neat looking, are kind of kitschy.
