    It's a tossup between abstract expressionism and dogs playing poker.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I like lowbrow. Tiki and hotrod art. Stuff by Von Franco, Ed Roth, Robt Williams. I also like metal sculpture, esp. functional or kenetic.

    I won't give the frustrating "I like everything" answer, although I do like a wide range of stuff, but Golden and Silver Age comic books make me smile every time. It's the pinnacle of artistic expression for me. I like Hentai and Lowbrow/Outsider stuff, too.

    The Impressionists were great. Baroque art is always beautiful. I've always loved Degas, Velasquez, and much of El Greco's work. Over the past summer I saw an incredible Picasso exhibit in Spain. I never appreciated Picasso until I saw it in person. It's gorgeous, the books and slides can't do it justice.

    I don't get modern art, a la Guggenheim Bilbao. Very cool museum, a lot of neat visual stuff, but I had no idea what was going on in the art.
    I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe,
    But at least I'm enjoying the ride.

    portraits, nature photography, waterscapes, and architecture. i like simplicity and things that are understated. i like to comtemplate rather than be dazzled. my tastes are woefully in another century, i have a hard time with more modern stuff.

    I really like the impressionists, and the japanese influences.
    Also have a strong leaning towards Art Nouveau, the organic quality
    really is striking to me.
    For sculpture I like Henry Moore (again the whole organic thing).
    Also into 60's comix art, bode, crumb, etc.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    My favourite artists are probably Gaugin and Dali. I think Dali was a one of a kind, since I find the rest of the "sureallist" painters to look like **** you buy in Spenser Gift Store or some Crappy headshop. Dali had a grandeur that the rest seemed to be lacking. I ordered the Tarot deck he painted. Very nice.

    I'd agree if you are referring to some of more recent varieties, but the originals of the period?

    Magritte, Rousseau, Miro,? Man that's some beautiful mind bending stuff.

    Thinking more along the lines of M C Escher crap that rides the coat-tails. Escher looks like something the weird D&D kid draws on his folder in high school.
