Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.

I don't know the artist, or the name of the painting. It just struck me.

This picture is a thing of beauty.

Nice choice, Alonzo.  A picture that one could look at for many years and see something different everytime.

I have  Joe Sweeney acrylic of Philadephia Boathouse Row I got on my 50th birthday I love.  Never tire of looking at it.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Speaking of hats, i've had a copy of this Torn Hat by Thomas Sully in my room for most of my life.  This kid always seems to understand my blues.

John Duncan Fergusson - “Self-Portrait: The Grey Hat” 1909 

Don't know why this stikes me - color, form, composition.

It is funny how art affects one in indefinable ways.

 

Random - brilliant juxtposition.

Photo of Anthony Baggett - AoM member.  St rang similarity of expression to the  "Self Portrait - The Grey Hat"

Portrait of Armand Roulin1888

Vincent van Gogh 

van Gogh catches the raw essence of masculinity in the eyes, how the head is held, and throughout the mouth - and does it using yellow - a brilliant & bold distinguishing relationship between seriousness and caprice. 

Clever, discerning, and penetrating.  He was a genius!

Joaquín Sorolla (Spanish, 1863-1923), Portrait of the Lawyer Don Silverio de la Torre y Eguia, 1893. Oil on canvas, 100 x 125 cm. Private collection.

 

How richly hued.  Expressive hands and eyes.  Soulfull.

Der Verwundete (The Wounded) by Arno Breker

 

Visually powerful.  Astonishing detail.

Amazing line from left shoulder to hairline.  Detail of medial malleoili and phalanges

Just amazing.  If you click on it and zoom in a little, it looks like a photograph.  Looks like someone you would meet tomorrow.  An amazing talent.  I am in awe.
