Crucifixion - Ang Kiukok
Wow, ang cool naman ng thread na 'to... at wala na akong maisagot kasi halos nabanggit na lahat.
And has anyone seen the washed Sistine Chapel? Ang strange ng mga kulay... hindi na dark and sombre.
^Ang Kiukok is great. When I found out that the cubist Manansala was his mentor, I was like 'no duh!'
That painting is similar to one made my his mentor (one of my faves from him):
I've been meaning to put this up for a while. This one is a by a famous Pre-Raphaelite, one of the original from the group. Their art is like romantic neo classicism, considered earlier form of avant garde, not so much due to their unique form but rather their approach: anti-classicism. Thus the name. Mostly reinventing classical and mixing it with realism.
This is one of the more famous ones and my favorite. It's from Shakespeare's Hamlet. The position of the hands is classical--pose of martyrs. While at the same time erotic--romanticism.
Ophelia- John Everett Millais
This is one of my favorites: Theodore Gericault's "The Raft of the Medusa" (1818–1819, Louvre Museum, Paris) ... "which depicted the aftermath of a contemporary French shipwreck, Meduse in which the captain had left the crew and passengers to die. The incident became a national scandal, and Géricault's dramatic interpretation presented a contemporary tragedy on a monumental scale. The painting's notoriety stemmed from its indictment of a corrupt establishment, but it also dramatized a more eternal theme, that of man's struggle with nature." [wikipedia] ...
Juan Luna's "Spoliarium" (1884) reminds me of it:
Luna had travelled to Barcelona in 1877, later moved to Rome and did "Spoliarium" in 1884. While Luna reportedly moved to Paris only in 1885, I wonder if he had seen sketches of "The Raft of the Medusa" in Rome (or if he had visited Paris) before he did "Spoliarium."
While both remain great works, the similarities are uncanny.

^well the theme are both romantic, but the styles are different. Luna is an obvious impressionist.
This one is my favorite from Luna:
Lover's Quarrel, Juan Luna

Brad Pitt portrait painting by Chuck Close - probably the greatest photorealist painter ever.
^ Had never really been interested in photorealists until now... wow, ang galing nila. Hyperrealists are even crazier.
