In honor of the friend from this thread >>4208 who whished there was more non-anime stuff here, I decided to make this thread.

Pleasant and aesthetically pleasing western art is definitely /kind/ material.

My sister loves that guy. She once tried to redraw that 5th pic with different colors, and it phenomenal. She thought that it was bad, but I tried to convince her that it wasn't.

I first learned about him as a teenager when I learned he did set design for The Rite of Spring, and his strange style has stuck with me ever since.


I first noticed his name when I was reading my sister "At the Mountains of Madness" when I was 16, and she was interested when he was mentioned. We looked him up, and she fell in love with his paintings. I think they're cool, but she really likes them. Thanks anon, for bringing him up. I haven't thought about that time with my sister in a while, and it's good to remember. Thanks again.

>I first noticed his name when I was reading my sister "At the Mountains of Madness" when I was 16, and she was interested when he was mentioned.
I actually noticed that when I read that back in high school. I wasn't expecting that, since H.P. Lovecraft wasn't usually one to reference painters.


Yeah, it was a bit strange, but when I first read it, I was too invested in the story to take the time to look up a painter.

This conversation inspired me to go look for that old drawing my sister made, and it actually wasn’t a copy of the one you posted, but a similar one. I think that I’m going to call her tomorrow and remind her of this

I like how she chose to take the original painting in a different direction instead of just aiming for an exact replica. It reminds me of how painters used to do variations on the same idea, whether it was their own or someone else's.


Yeah, she's a really good artist. And an even better photographer. She actually had the opportunity to get into SCAD, but she gave it up so that she could have a shitty job at a car dealership in order to work with her boyfriend. It sucks a bit, thinking of what she could have done, but it's what she wanted to do, and I don't fault her for it.

Odilon Redon is my jam. His flowers paintings are more tamed than his other themed works, and definitely /kind/.

Though I guess most flower still lifes are /kind/

Maybe not classical, but I also enjoy surreal works like the strange images that Max Ernst made.

Wow, these are pretty interesting. I especially like the second pic with the greenish structure in the background. There's a strangely dreamlike feeling to it.
>Henry darger was a mad lad. I like that stuff.
It's too bad his work wasn't discovered until he was on his deathbed. With a little guidance from a more technically gifted artist, his work could have been even better.

His story is both depressing and inspiring.

Something about the fourth one has always felt kind of dreamlike to me despite its realistic style.
The snowy painting reminds me of something Pieter Bruegel the Elder would have done.
That first one looks like Trent Reznor.
Now that's what I call eldritch horror.

woah, that looks cool. do you remember the name of the piece?


wait no I'm a fool, I found it through reverse image search (Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond, Monet). I wanted to try to find it in a better resolution to get an idea of it looks but I feel like seeing it online might not do it justice.
