Enough of uglies!
Is there an art piece you love for some reason? Or an artist whose artstyle you are obsessed with?
This is Summer by Mucha.
Weeby stuff is welcome as well.
Going to dump a couple more.
Mark Ryden though every ~quirkyyy~ person out there seems to love him.
I love Gustave Dore's art. Anything with a medieval, fantasy, or mythological setting is right up my alley.
I like Francisco Goya's creepy dark works.
Pretty basic but I love Klimt. I even saw this painting in real life last year and it's so beautiful
Usually I'm not into modern art, but I love Egon Schiele's work. He was a protege of Gustav Klimt and has some of the weirdest illustrations. His line work is attractive.
Wie wird es enden Is a nice picture.
I love it because the first time I saw it I thought it was "Howl will it end"
I usually hate things like this, but thought this one was cute.
Oh I absolutely adore Schiele. My mother was looking to buy some artwork to decorate her house with recently, so I linked her to some of his work and to my surprise she loved him too. Now she has 3 prints in the living room.
I'm a really big fan of Yoshitaka Amano. He used to be the lead character designer for the final fantasy series and he illustrates these really detailed, romantically fantastical characters and settings.
God I remember him being huge in the late 00's, his shit was everywhere, him and the likes of Ray Caesar and Nicoletta Ceccoli.
I've always loved Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 by Ilya Repin. I've since never seen a painting able to depict such raw, unprocessed emotion in this way, it's really transfixing.
I know its cliche, but my favourite painting as an edgy teen was 'Raft of the Medusa', and I still have a soft spot for it
nowadays I tend to prefer softer pre-raphaelite type of things but for some reason this painting in particular is so impressive to me>>1287
this is one of my favourite paintings ever
I love James Jean's art. He releases a timed print every 3 months or so and I've bought each and every one of them lol. My friends all joke that my house is pretty much a James Jean art gallery and that I could start charging people admission.
This is "Adrift" and it's in my top 3 favs from him.
Every day by René Magritte. It makes me feel things.
this one's great too
I'm going to dump a few of my favs. Mostly fan artists and pastel jfash stuff.
I seriously love almost http://eiffelart.tumblr.com/
makes. Adore the use of landscapes and how the characters interact with them. Much more interesting than just a floating character that tons of fanartist do
Their art feels like a mix between illustration and graphic design. I love how blobby and cute their characters are
My absolute favorite jp artist. They dont seem that popular compared to others though (like saaki pyrop) which makes me a bit sad.
i liked their older more painter-y style more but their new one is nice too
Jessicka Addams (ex-Jack off Jill, Scarling) has cute artwork even if it can be a bit cliché
This is one of my favorite paintings of all time, it's so intensely you can tell of an oncoming storm. I love the overall style of The Temple of Flora.
Teagan White, in case anyone was wondering (:
This is the best one she did I think, plus, it speaks to me personally.
there's something about rene gruau absolute simplicity and use of colors that i adore
I will post some Kashima Echo.
damn, i feel like i ghostwrote this entire thread (minus a couple of the tumblr artists) a lot of these images are from some of my all-time favorite artists!
lately i've been really into vintage shoujo mangaka and their styles that inspire me to work harder on developing a distinct one of my own. also coming back into loving artists i used to cling to when i first started learning about art, particularly pre-raph/ impressionism and also more modern artists like audrey kawasaki, ryden, sorren, yoshitomo nara, pater sato, hikari shimoda and (pictured) liepke.
after a personal period of darkness and being really stagnant i forgot how much art actually makes me happy and inspired, and how much i missed studying and seeing it! i wish this site was a little faster with post frequency because you all have great taste

pretty much every single thing i've seen ben constantine make gives me intense artist jealousy (plumpe_oystere on instagram)
Posting Mucha again because life is too short.
Trade off by Tama. Her works are so beautiful. I can only dream of being able to one day watercolor like her.
Luzifer by Franz von Stuck
My favourite painter, he always only drew very dark subjects.
this might sound pretentious but I actually really like Rothko n I wish I could see his paintings irl
Claude Monet and the impressionist movement also makes me really happy
I'm not a big fan of Pieter Bruegel because his art reminds me a bit too much of naive art which I dislike but I love his painting "Netherlandish Proverbs". It's like a proto-meme or something, and it has so much time and effort put into it. Check out the wikipedia page, it has a list of all the proverbs illustrated: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlandish_Proverbs
The Meeting on the Turret Stairs by Frederick Burton
just…the way he’s holding her. so cute.
hell yea I love paintings of Holofernes getting beheaded
Ayami Kojima (mostly known for her Castlevania art) she does a lot of interesting gothic horror art and I love her work (including her weird WTF NSFW stuff). I also want her art book but it's too damn expensive now.
Women & Food series. Painting by Lee Price.
this looks like miles johnston's work
loish is another online artist i admire
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Arthur Rackham
Norwegian Coast by Moonlight by Andreas Achenbach
A wonderful piece, by an artist I truly adore.
Man, his illustrations for the Divine Comedy are phenomenal! I love his depiction of the Forest of the Suicides.
Ronald Searle - Th…
Came across Ronald Searle purely by accident a couple of years ago. Turns out he's pretty famous since he was known for creating the St. Trinian's series of cartoons. He pretty much draws straight onto paper with ink as far as I'm aware.
Sidney Sime - Ther…
An illustration by Sidney Sime. A lot of his drawings can be found accompanying a series of short fantasy stories by Lord Dunsany.
i absolutely adore George Condos works! i love how everything is so fragmented yet so composed and something about it makes me feel emotionally… as if he is trying to reveal multiple layers or levels of feelings or intentions
I've liked this piece a lot since I was a child for some reason
I discovered Kaneoya Sachiko's work in 2013 and I've loved her ever since.http://yoiko-yokochou.com/
this artist on twitter, manuhamu. idk if shes still around, pretty sure she wiped all her art, but i saved as much as i could. sad :(
I love all the old classic clichés on here but I'm especially into this 3D kind of look if we're talking about more modern art. I like it best with bright colours on a blue tone background, like water or the sky. The way the paint comes off the canvas is stunning imo.
Conrad Jon Godly.j…
3D brushstrokes are so powerful. I love Conrad Jon Godly's works.

This haunts me. I know it's of a prostitute, but I identify with how the subject appears to be feeling.
Maslowski Stanislaw Wschod Ksiezyca 1884
I really love tofuvi. Her art is just so beautiful, pleasant and comfy.
august malmström’s dancing fairies is amazing. zoom in on the wispy fairies! they are so detailed.
I love this artist so fucking much. I wish I wasn't poor so I could buy their art. https://www.pixiv.net/en/users/869102
Ramón Casas, 1907. She was a Barcelona flower girl and he an artist from a rich family. They ended up married. I love how he depicts her here.
I absolutely love nekozneko's art and aesthetic
I love Tomm Moore's movies and his art style. It's so chilly yet comfy? It just reminds me of being at a cloudy beach while it's raining and there is a forest near by and all of the greenery pops out, almost like neon. The fact that his art style provokes such a deep feeling is what makes me such an avid fan of his work.
its so chill and relatable i want to be her friend

The Destruction of…
i really enjoy a lot of Joh Martin's works, largely because of how gargantuan and complex the environments are and how they make the figures in it look minute by comparison. by personal favorite of his is "The Destruction of Pharaoh's Host" (pic related) mostly because of the color composition and how serene he makes the chaotic situation looks.
I wish my art looked more like picrel. I wish my backgrounds were more detailed and I love the vibe of having an aesthetically messy room. Things with sad anime girl vibes. It would look nice with how high the contrast tends to be in my art as well.
Someone already posted another of Goya's black paintings but this one's always look the most foreboding to me
Aivazovsky, The Ninth Wave.
The painter was born in a port town near the Black Sea and painted a ton of seascapes, many of them depicting the struggle between man and nature. Russians had a saying, "worthy of Aivazovsky's brush", for lovely things.
I find the translucent quality mesmerizing.

Museums and galleries often sell catalogues of different artists/genres/time periods. A 5 year old might appreciate something colourful and detailed, like the pre-raphaelites or something. You can also get childrens fairytale books with illustrations from the 1880s-1930s golden age, those are amazing
