Possibly not going to be a popular thread but who cares, lets give it a go this forum is dedicated to "Arty stuff" after all. My love of art began in school, probably because I went to the same school as Sir Joshua Reynolds (although not at the same time I hasten to add) and art was a big part of school life. I'm not particularly gifted but do occasionally dabble, my real interest lies in viewing great works of art up front and personal, from that respect the greatest art gallery in the world can be found in Madrid (in my opinion) Museo del Prado If you ever get a chance visit, it may seriously change your view on art, and it's free on Sunday's! Probably one of the most stunning works of art there is by a guy who has become known as Hieronymous Bosch and he falls as number 3 in my most appreciated artists. The others being Picasso who's greatest piece Guernica sits in my hallway, not the original unfortunately but a 6' print of the huge canvas. First on my list is however Salvador Dali, I have 3 autographed postcards signed by the great man when he lived in New York, the authenticated one cost a few quid and I will get around to certifying the other two at some point, I don't have a favourite Dali but this is probably one of his best Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bumblebee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening Nifty little title! Other favourites are Miro, and Van der Weydon So does anyone else share my interest in art or am I the only geeky freek on the forums?
