Love the St. Thomas, Danny!

Peter, yours are great too!

Malczewski is something of a cult figure to many people here. I'm not one of them, though. But I do like a couple of his paintings (if you like them, there are many more here):

Melancholy


Don Quixote and Sancho Pansa


Death


The Rusalkas


My Angel, I will follow you


Landscape with Tobias

My favourite artist, Wassily Kandinsky:



Picasso with probably the first truly modern painting:



Also, Manet's Olympia, which caused uproar and was rejected by the Salon in 1863:

Siedler,

I think you would like this CSO presentation about Bartok's Miraculous Mandarin.

One of my favorite Turner paintings, "The Fighting Temeraire tugged to her last Berth to be broken up " The ship was damaged at the Battle of of Trafalgar. Turner painted it twice, this one years later when it when it was being scrapped, all in keeping with Turner's fascination with the decay of great things.

When I saw the painting (rather than in a book) in the National Gallery, it reminded me of James Brown's cape routine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Brown#The_cape_routine




The picture reminds me of Rimsky-Korsakov's The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh

I hope this attempt works!

It was the picture of the Gergiev recording I was referring to.

Anne, if it's the adding of images/quoting you're having a problem with (I'm not sure what you meant by "I hope this attempt works" ;D), the References section of the Help pages might answer your questions.

Cheers,
Maciek

Thanks  I will read the Help section.  I can never transfer a picture from another web site to a post I'm writing here.  I can only post the web address.

I'm not sure if the help will help. ;D (But do try it.) I'll be starting a special thread for assistance of this kind in the GMG News section presently, so you can take a peek in there if you're left with any questions.

Cheers,
Maciek

 Hurray! I'm so glad,I'm utterly useless at posting pictures.It takes me weeks and months to learn how this darn thing works. Been on it for 6 years now and still don't have the barest clue.To add insult to injury I am a slow one fingered typist.
