Paintings with a Wow Factor

Recommended Posts

I love landscape paintings.  I have some around my house.  Really love the Chinese landscape painting but have none of those.  Maybe one day.

Things like that happened in Greek mythology.

 

Ha! I also read a lot of Greek mythology when I was young. Niw that I think about it ... that was probably my first clue that the world is full of wiley women.

Sirens were what I had in mind

 

Speaking of Sirens ... any of you ever read Sirens of Titan?

I don't recall that but then it was a long time ago.  I know about them Sirens though.

This painting by James Tissot shows the crucifixion scene as viewed by Christ. I am not a Christian but I found this to be very moving.
