I haven't taken a moment of fine arts or art history studies since elementary school, so I'm extremely ill-informed in this area. I suspect my tastes may be a little plebeian, but I know what I like.

I love Van Gogh's colours and brush strokes. My favourite works by him are his Starry Night series, but this one is my favourite:



I also love this one, Olive Trees with the Alpilles in the Background:



The Night Cafe:

Oh my, yes. It's stunning. I thought of that piece when I saw the painting of the cathedral earlier in the thread.

I don't actually know all that many.

Debussy was essentially the only artist in the impressionist movement anyways.

Besides what you listed, I would also reccomend:

1.Prelude A L'Apres-Midi D'Un Faune
2.Danses Sacree Et Profane For Harp & Strings(My absolute favorite piece of classical music).

Anyways, back to the topic at hand.

I've always been a big fan of the haystacks.

I agree. I've been especially underwhelmed at seeing his paintings in person. Impressionism isn't really my style, though.

First of all, I can't believe I actually started this thread once upon a time. But here it is, still alive.

Anyway, I visited the St. Louis Art Museum this past Sunday and got to see these three original Claude Monet masterpieces up close and in person and in real life.

Charing Cross Bridge


Water Lilies (This one was HUGE. Took up an entire wall of the museum!)


The Promenade with the Railroad Bridge


It was fucking unbelievable. All three were set up in the same gallery room, and I think my jaw is still on the floor back there in that room. You have to see these shits in the flesh to truly appreciate them, I think. But cool, right? Monet is my favorite painter, fo sho, at this relatively un-art-educated moment of my life.

Soooooooooo...post more of your favorite Monet paintings. Or other paintings. Or whatever. Thanks. I love you.

I just wanted to say great thread. I've loved Monet since I was like 5 and saw an exhibit at the MFA Boston. don't have time to dig up jpgs of some of my favorites but there are some good ones posted here. I really wanna get to his house some time in Giverny.

Amazon.com: Linnea in Monet's Garden: Cristina Bjork, Lena Anderson, Joan Sandin: Books

if anyone wants a beautiful book to indoctrinate your children on Monet, or just to enjoy the well done book, see above

I already posted in this thread, and I have to admit that though I do like certain works, overall impressionism isn't one of my favourite forms. I'm more of an expressionist.

However, I think there's nothing better in this world than the fact that GAF loves Monet.
