1: I dedicate this to: Summer Pearson My dear beloved friend
2: The Portrait of Sung Jen-tesung was painted anonymously in the 16th Century. In my opinion he looks very humble. It was painted on a silk hanging scroll in ink and color. | Before 1700
3: The following is a picture of Vincenzo Anastagi By El Greco. It was painted with oil on a canvas. It is 74 X 49 7/8 inches. I really like the green El Greco used in this piece. | Before 1700
4: This piece of art known as Elijah Taken Up in a Chariot of Fire is very detailed and beautiful. It was done by Angeli Giuesppe. It was a baroque style. The theme for this was the Old Testament. | During the 1701-1800
5: The following is a marvelous oil painting. It is named The Children of Edward Hollen Cruttenden. The artist behind this piece is Sir Joshua Reynolds. I personally think the red in the picture brings out a lot of character. | During the 1701-1800
6: This is a portrait of Queen Victoria. She looks very comfortable to me. It originally was an oil sketch and was very detailed later on. | During the 1801-1900 | The Past
7: This is a beautiful picture named Lady Lilith. It was done by artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Lady Lilith has very detailed hair that gives the appearance of her being bored as she strokes it gently with a comb. | During the 1801-1900
8: The Following is an oil painting by Jackson Pollock. It is called "Composition with Pouring II". This piece was created in 1943 during WWII. I think It expresses a lot of crazy emotions the artist was going through during the war. | During the 1901-2000
9: During the 1901-2000 | A favorite of mine, Marilyn Monroe was made by Andy Warhol. Andy was a huge pop artist during this period. Being a huge Marilyn Monroe fan, I must say it is very nicely constructed.
10: Modern Art (2001-Present) | This painting below is "Luna" by Jack Han. It was done in 2004. I think the colors are interesting, and the dog is striking.
11: Another modern piece, also done by Jack Han, is "In The Middle". It was done in 2002. The piece can be found in a modern art museum in New York City. This piece is involved with beautiful colors and flowing strings. | Modern Art (2001-Present)
12: Michelangelo sculpted this beauty titled Pieta` in 1499. It was during the Renaissance period. It is well known and can be located in Rome. | Michelangelo
13: Also, done by Michelangelo, is "The Creation of Adam". He makes the body very detailed and you can tell he takes the body very seriously. I personally agree that he was a true Renaissance Man.
14: This Portrait is near and dear to my Heart it is "The Last Supper". It is a Christian symbol almost showing the last supper Jesus had with his disciples. I love the way he expressed the emotions on each of their faces in this piece of historical art. | Leonardo | Da Vinci
15: The picture above is known as the Mona Lisa. A very famous painting all across the world. People find it interesting how her eyes are almost laughing and yet her mouth is gloomy. Almost everyone wants to know what she is thinking.
16: This interesting piece is known as "The Persistence of Memory. It was created in 1931. This very famous work of art show time/clocks getting discovered everywhere. I find it very odd and it draws my attention to this because of that factor. | Salvador Dali
17: This beautiful painting was also done by the famous Salvador Dali. The colors are absolutely vibrant. It is often know as "Landscape with Butterflies." The name truly says it all.
18: Claude Monet | This detailed drawing was presented with the name "La Promenade." The colors are unique and look old. I can almost hear a story when looking at this painting.
19: Another painting by Monet would be "Sunflowers." It is very well designed. The yellow in the flowers make the picture come alive. I think the blue background works nice with the painting.
20: Pablo | Picasso | This was a self portrait Pablo Picasso made. The lines are very straight and its very choppy to the eye. I am not a huge fan of the colors but I like the well thought out structures.
21: The picture above is called "Jacqueline with Flowers." Being another one of Picasso creations, it is also done with a very straight edge. The colors are much more pleasing in this portrait. It was also done in 1954.
