I always loved pre-historic art. Homeric Greek was crude by Hellenistic standards, somewhere between this and what we consider Classical Greek and (Roman) Late Republic/early Empire sculpture...

Clearly, you are posting this just for its sexual titillation value. One more reason why you will go to hell when you die, Major.

You're preaching to the choir, Major-Murphy! I had planned on getting a doctorate in art history prior to going to law school. Even had the place picked out - University of North Carolina, where they had a great program back in the 70s. Then the first Miz Hun and I had our daughter, Lorelei, and, well, I cut out the [i]'ars gratis artis'[/i] bit and went straight to law school! I'd always hoped to accumulate sufficient funds to go back, but I was so easily called away... Eric The(WhatMightHaveBeen)Hun[>]:)]

[img]http://www.ehomebook.com/users/Golgo-13/images/CARAVAG5.jpg[/img] Caravagio is great. If you study his biography, he was a real hell-raising tough guy. He killed a fellow over a tennis match, for instance. One of my favorite artists, too. His series of painting about the passion of Christ are among my favorite works of any kind.

Beautiful. I've been so caught up in the technical side of life for so many years that I've forgotten how much I enjoy looking at stuff like this. It's one thing to read about ancient civilizations, another to see their work. Thank you, Major Murphy.

[img]http://www.ehomebook.com/users/Golgo-13/images/notime2.jpg[/img] Just to show that I am not entirely the high-minded intellectual that you all believe me to be, this one is from a series done for a calender in the 1950's. The artist, a fellow named Frahm, isn't remembered for anything other than the "panties falling down" series. Certainly, he was no Vargas, but on this one idea he displayed a spark of talent.

[img]http://www.ehomebook.com/users/Golgo-13/images/vesdi02.jpg[/img] I love this one by Andreas Vesalius, the original anatomist. Look at the detail! Those are the inner ear bones there on the pedestal near the skull. Supposedly, this illustration was what inspired the soliloquy scene in Hamlet, though I suspect it may be the other way around.

Here's another Chuck Close. It's also about 9'x12', in size. This one was made entirely with a fingerprint inkpad, and fingerprints. The dark areas are the fresh prints, the lighter areas are second, third, fourth, etc., prints. He came up with an intricate system for this one.
