Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres 1780-1867

I'm stunned and amazed at the exsquisitely beautiful luminosity of his incredibly realistic renderings of fabric using only paint and brush >

Indeed, some of the Master's certainly got it down pat.

This artist's visionary painting of women from the Bible intrigues me.

I mean seriously,look at the womans dress in the image above,it looks like a photograph,but its not,its paint and its incredibly realistic...

Now look at the fabric below in the most famous and valuable painting of all and it doesnt have the same realism,not even close...

So which ones actually better,which one should be more valuable and held in higher esteem? the top one,imo...

"The best known,the most visited,the most written about,the most sung about,the most parodied work of art in the world"

Mona Lisa By Leonardo Da Vinci 1452-1519 >

So, I would think you would not be able to compare fabric between the two paintings due to the great time expanse between them as well as different painting techniques by artists. Also, not all silks are created equal as mentioned in the link above.

For two of many examples,leonardo da vinci and gerard ter borch were only seperated by about 100 years and i posted some of gerards incredibly realistic fabric renderings on page two and one below...

I like fantasy art and just about every other type as well,but i also like realism in paintings,the ability to paint what reality really looks like,well at least what we think it looks like and leonardos mona lisas face looks real enough,but her fabric doesnt...

But i also understand that some of the most valuable and famous paintings look like a child painted them and beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

Gerard Ter Borch 1617-1681 >

Karol Bak and Chromium Graces are pretty awesome! I love vintage art though. I think everybody does because it reminds us of an era when life was good and prosperous, lol

I like vintage art as well,but i suppose how old someone is determines whats vintage to them and so a 10 year old would think 1990's art is vintage and a 90 year old would think 1890's art is vintage (*-*)
