Art-U-Like

Postby Gerst » Sun Apr 29, 2018 1:40 pm

NN's thread is for people's own artwork, so I thought I'd do one for other people's art: paintings, illustrations, photographs, sculpture, architecture...

Here's six pics from London By Night by Harold Burdekin, showing parts of London in the 30s, before the Blitz.

I love 30's Art Deco stuff but my favourite painting has to be Norman Rockwell's 'Nighthawks'

I think you mean Edward Hopper, Stooo, rather than Norman Rockwell, though I see how you can get them mixed up as it's the sort of thing Rockwell might easily have painted too – but with much less subtelty and much less feeling of mystery and loneliness about the figures, as he was more of a solid advertising guy really.

I very much like Hopper too, and his daytime paintings have the same slightly dreamworld quality to them.

My bad, I was searching for Rockwell and posted Hopper :oops: It's still my favourite painting :wubbers:

Do you like Anders Petersen?

Not really familiar with him, though a quick look on google and I recognise one or two pics. Reminds a bit of images of Soho in the 50s and 60s – that sort of pissed-up, rough realism – though I see he is Swedish.

There's a couple of British photographers who work in that area – Richard Billingham is one I remember, does a lot in colour.

Got to put the new bag head in here! It is class! The guy on the bed scrolling through his iPad is an unusual touch.
