Looking For Affordable Photography Prints

I am looking for affordable photography prints. I don't know how to describe the aesthetic that I am looking for. I'd like something "edgy" and maybe a bit dark without being scary or "too much." [more inside]

Wall Art for a Super Picky Art Snob

I just moved into a small apartment. I have a real minimalism vibe going on. Contempary/modern. The walls are extremely bare. I need some art to spruce up the walls. I am super picky, and perusing Pier 1 and Home Goods isn’t cutting it. Way too generic [more inside]

Rothko's Harvard Murals

I'm having trouble finding color photos of the Rothko Harvard murals in their original settings (shot to show placement/context within the rooms and amid their furnishings, rather than showing details in the paintings themselves). If not on the web, is there a book containing such photos?

Who was this surrealist?

ArtFilter: I'm trying to figure out who created a number of surrealist images. I remember inversion/fusion of right-side-up and up-side-down things as the main theme, with a lot of castle-islands, boats sailing through the sky, etc. Along the lines of this image. [more inside]

A painter who includes donated secrets in their works?

I seem to recall reading about a contemporary artist (possibly a painter) a few years back who includes secrets that are donated by other people into their work, and perhaps encodes or conceals them in some way. Google's not turning up anything useful, so I'm turning to the hive mind instead - does that ring any bells for anyone?

Searching for a series of paintings.

I've been searching for a series of recent paintings (I think they're paintings, but I can't be sure) to no avail. Here's what I remember: they're of well-dressed women who are peeling back their skin to reveal viscera. I recall that they're by a Spanish artist and they're fairly recent. Please help me hivemind, all my google searches are coming up empty.

Want to sell my paintings - what to do?

I would like to begin to sell my paintings at local art fairs and online sites such as Etsy, $25-100.00 price range. Do I really need to set up an LLC or sole proprietorship, get a tax number and whatever else just to sell a painting or two (if I'm lucky?) Thanks. P.S. I live in Illinois.

Help identifying 'big sky' paintings

Ten or twelve years ago I saw a series of paintings I really liked at the Denver Art Museum. The paintings featured idyllic farm-like scenery under bright blue skies with white clouds. Distinctly the sky made up 80% of the image, so the ground and barns, etc. appeared to be quite small and the sky seemed huge. There were at least 3-5 of paintings in this series, and the canvases were very large. Can anyone identify the paintings or artist?

Is it possible to commission an artist?

My wife keeps a list of all the words our 1 year old has learned to say. As a present I thought it might be nice to commission an artist to make a collage of them that we could put on the wall. I'm in London, England. I have no idea how one would do this, or if it would be affordable (I'd be prepared to spend up to around a thousand pounds). Can you commission an artist - and if so, how would you find one?

Anyone know the name of this painting at the Louvre?

Anyone know the name of this painting at the Louvre? It's an eighteenth-century work of two aristocratic ladies, young and not terribly attractive, standing side by side and wearing nothing at all but their jewels and sly smiles. One of them has her finger plugged casually--one might almost say absentmindedly--into the other's butt. I just told my fiance about it, and she refuses to believe that so august an institution as the Louvre would display such a painting, much less that it even exists. If I can prove I'm not making it up, I won't have to dishes for a week. Thanks

Where in Montmartre (Paris) did Maurice Utrillo stand when he painted this view of the "Maquis"?

My late grandfather painted an interpretation of one of Maurice Utrillo's depictions of the "Maquis" of Montmartre, in Utrillo's time a very poor area of the well-known Paris neighbourhood. Which Utrillo work did my granddad use as a blueprint, and where exactly was Utrillo's vantage point? [more inside]

Edward Hopper

I 'm learning English.And I am looking for some paintings of Edward Hopper ... that Gregory Orr describes in his essay, "Return to Hayneville" I don't think it is from Nighthawks. Could you recall some of Hopper paintings from his description?_And there is something completely new in town,the only new thing as far as I can see :a BP cnvenience store,where I stop for gas.The station is shiny and all lit up, its blue -green signs glowing intensely in the dark like those roadside stores in Edwards Hopeer paintings, gleaming forlornly against the primeval dark of rural Anywhere, America.
