I don't really know what my favourite painting is actually. For various reasons and the obvious one of ignorance is the most valid I think. But I do know what has had a profound influence on how I look at art.
And this for instance has made me reacquaint my taste for fear or evil in contrast with beauty and goodness, yin yang thing simply
Must say that most of what I know of art is from the few musea I've visited and what I have stumbled onto. Some very enligthening posts in this thread.

I dont know if theyre strictly paintings, but i love the art nouveau style. Especially the job cigarette paper adverts by mucha. Gil Elvgren's paintings are also great.
Here are just a few: I absoloutley love the outlines and flowing shapes. Really elegant and stylish.
Wish i had some huge prints of them
Heres some more:

This one blew my mind: I saw the real one. As Garma said, the internet doesn't do justice to the beauty of the original. I'm using this picture as it looks more natural.
The Transfiguration by Raphael. When you are actually standing in front of it, you can feel the wind and the power. Just stunning, really.
Did I mention it's huge?
Here's another I love, though I have never seen it in real life, just from art books, etc:
Death of Marat by David:
I also love this one:
The Conversion of St. Paul-Caravaggio:
And a Bosch to finish:

I decided on this Frazetta. I chose it mainly since it's first one of his I ever saw, and it fired off so many explosions in me (and still does.)
...and for the classist in me:
by Arnold Boecklin
by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes
There are of course thousands of others to pick.
(oh, and lotaH, that post by §ha is a Botticelli called "Primavera" I think.)

looks like the chick in Van Helsing : Kate Beckinsale
Andy H: Mucha is awesome! Love his work. He seems kinda unique from that period though. The other couple Art Nouveau artists don't seem to be as graphical, which I find dissapointing.

Besides H.R. Giger being an influence, this man is what started it all for me with traditional painting:
'Understood in its metaphysical sense,
Beauty is one of the manifestations of the Absolute Being.
Emanating from the harmonious rays of the Divine plan,
it crosses the intellectual plane to shine once again across
the natural plane, where it darkens into matter.'
-Jean Delville 1899
Les Tresors de Satan (1895) Jean Delville
