    Can we throw music into the mix?

     Turner and Van Gogh are two of my favorites. I like most of the Impressionists and Renaissance artists as well as Caspar David Friedrich, Francisco Goya, El Greco, Eugene Delacroix, and dare I say it .           .             . Norman Rockwell.

    That's just off the top of my head though.

    Posted by: dimabbqIf we are talking about music, is every piece of music considered "art"? What are some of your favourite pieces of music?

     Well that always leads to the question 'What is Art?'.

    And to get that out of the way, I'll provide my definition. Art is the result of some sort of creative action. Whether it's music, a film, or a painting. An action and thought should go into making it. So one could say that even a Michael Bay film is 'art', the real question is 'Is it 'good' or 'bad' art?'. Ok, enough philosophizing. ;)

    I actually prefer classical, but I can listen to almost anything. Country, Rock, Folk music, Jazz, all except mainly Rap and Hip-Hop. However I've never really had a favorite band or singer 'cause I've never really attached to any.

    What do you like?

     I would consider an album like Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd to be a piece of art and worthy of comparison with the work of the "great" composers.

    It's hard to say really. The colours just strike a chord with me:

    I have been to the Kandinsky Museum in Munich and it's well worth it. One thing I wasn't expecting was that he painted the frames as well! Very unusual...

    I didnt know Kandinsky painted his frames, it must be great to see so much of his work together. Have visited the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam a couple of times and thats awe inspiring to see so much of his work collected together the man must have been a painting machine. Here is a Howard Hodgkin, another chap who likes to paint his frames..

    Basquiat - Schnabels first film
    Pollock - Ed Harris directs and acts
    Surviving Picasso - Anthony Hopkins in not too good movie
    Klimt - another poor effort, Malkovich in Ruiz film.
    The Agony and the Ecstasy - Carol Reed film about Michelangelo played by Charles Heston
    Frida - Frida Kahlo as played by Salma Hayek
    Modigliani of Montparnasse - Jacques Becker film I've not seen
    Caravaggio - Derek Jarman
    Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon : John Maybury film with Derek Jacobi as the artist
    Cradle Will Rock - segment on Diego Rivera's censored work in Rockefeller Center, also includes Frida Kahlo

    I remember a survey a while back when the great british public was asked to name a famous artist.

    Tony Hart came second.

    Rolf Harris was first.

     I forgot about Pollock, I thought that was a very good film. It's amazing how much Harris looks like Pollock. I saw most of Caravaggio, it was odd to say the least with the inclusion of modern dress and props, but I believe that's supposed to be like how Caravaggio painted biblical scenes as though they were the present day.

     I like Claire de Lune too, but I haven't heard anything else by Debussy. I like most of the 'big' classical composers and some of the modern ones like Shostakovich, the two pieces I've heard by him were very good. One was a piano concerto I believe and the other was a waltz from his 'jazz suite'.

     That's a good comparison. I took a photography course in high school and while we didn't have to take photos that were 'like' anyones, I never liked having to have specific 'projects'. I think it would've been much more productive if I were allowed to just take photos of whatever I thought would make a good picture. I'm sure I probably would've gotten more interesting ones.

    Ooh, a little bit a controversy.

     

    What's the general view of the Surrealists?

     Yes, it really brings up the question do we value the work or just the artist's name?  As far as the surrealists, I've seen mostly Dali and his work is interesting. However, I tend to prefer most art before that.

    Fish. 

     

    Seriously though, I adore Dali's work. If you've ever been to Barcelona, they have a fantastic museum just full to the brim of his works. From sculptures and pencil drawings to the classic melting clocks and elephants. Really stunning.

    Wouldn't it be great to have a melting clock in the living room next to the TV?

     Nah, I'd never be on time for anything.

    Another great film about real artists is Kenji Mizoguchi's Five Women Around Utamaro about Utamaro Kitagawa (1753-1806) a woodblock print artist famous for including human emotion. Contains a painting duel and finishes with loads of his paintings (although doesn't burst into colour).
