Show us your favourite painting

Like it says in the title, show us a picture of your favourite painting.

I know there are stickies for various arists but not many people will have time to browse them all (artrenewal alone would take about two years to browse properly) so maybe we could have a thread of concentrated coolness and people might discover some really cool art they weren't previously familiar with.

To start this of, here's "The Lady of Shalott" (1888) by John William Waterhouse.

I really struggled to choose a single painting but this one just edged out "Ophelia" and "The Tempest" in the end.



So, what's yours?

Great idea this thread ! I think I am going to love the art discussion forums. Anyway here is (one of my) favourite(s) :



I have seen this picture for real and it was amazing, as if Rembrandt was there himself, as if you can see his character. It seems so easily painted, almost casual, and I guess at this age he had that mastery.

Ridiculous that anyone has an actual favourite. But here's one I like.

Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes.
I wish he'd do something soon.

Way too many to list. I'd end up listing over 100 paintings.

Ernie Barnes: Sugar Shack always remembered this painting from watching Good Times when I was a kid.
