I really like Holbein's portrait of Sir Thomas More - it just conveys perfectly his dignity, intelligence, and fortitude.  No, he was not a perfect man, but an admirable one nonetheless (unless you're a hardcore Protestant).

I'll come up with more later, but I'm pressed for time. . .

This is the ultimate mercy expressed in the history of Japanese art. "Avalokitesvara as a Merciful Mother" by Hogai Kano (1828-1888). Its colors and details are simply splendid. The artist must have been in a state of nirvana when he painted this.

My two favourite pictures happen to be two watercolour illustrations made by two different people to the same story by J.R.R. Tolkien. I found them both on the internet.

"Tuor follows Voronwë" by Peter Xavier Price.

"Voronwë in Nan-tathren" by Anke Eissmann

You can also add my avatar to the list. :)

Dali made statements supporting Franco's Fascist regime, but the idea of him fighting in the Civil War (or anywhere else for that matter) is laughable. He was a posturing fool, posessing superb painting techniques and masterful drawing skills  who made a few memorable images. The vast majority of his output was junk however, reflecting his obsession with masturbation.  His house in Figueres in North Eastern Spain is full of the most hidious and vulgar trash. In a way it is a mirror of Dali himself, fascinating on the ouside, but with an interior full of disintegrating tinsle. He died a very sad, painful and lonely death there.

The two film's he is constantly credited with as works of genius were of course largely the work of Luis Bunuel. His collaboration with Hitchcock was just embarrassing for both men.

I really like Holbein's portrait of Sir Thomas More - it just conveys perfectly his dignity, intelligence, and fortitude.

I get the impression you are thinking about the character portrayed in A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, rather than seeing the image you have posted. Painted in 1527, Moore is depicted as an extraordinaryly wealthy courtier, dressed in fine fur lined velvet robes (which would have cost an absolute fortune then) singling him out as a person of wealth and power. He is represented in an ambigous, possibly exterior space, with what seems like a tent flap blowing open in the backgraound, hinting perhaps at his travels as a King's ambassador (Holbien's greatest surviving picture is arguably THE AMBASSADORS). Most tellingly, right at the centre of the portrait is a very large Tudor Rose hung round Moore's neck, the symbol of Henry VIII, a badge of his trust in Moore, Moore's alligence to Henry and a sign of Moore's authority as a representative of the King.

It would be six years after this painting was made that Moore would fall out with Henry, and he spent that period brutally putting people to death over such stupid and idiotic points of theology which would eventually see his own undoing. None of this is present however in Holbein's portrait of a rich, powerful and loyal servant of a Tudor king. A picture showing a man of "dignity, intelligence, and fortitude"? I don't see that in this image. Perhaps where Holbien's genius lies (and which makes his surviving pictures seem so "modern") is that he makes all such loyal servants appear just a little bit queasy and nervous?

Say what you want about Che....that he was dedicated to a false ideology, that he was less than forgiving of his political prisoners....whatever, I'll probably agree with you.  But this image is is iconic, and I think it's a "Flat Out Great Picture".  You go to Latin America today and you will see this picture plastered everywhere....on murals, on bumper stickers, etc.  It's not an endorsement of Marxist-Leninism....but more a general symbol of protest of U.S. hegemony in the region, Latin American unity, etc.

(http://blog.lagateradigital.com/wp-content/subidas/che-guevara-portrait.jpg)

For me I guess, it represents this sort of spirit of defiance and rebellion that is just so much bigger than Che, his ideology, or any one of us.  I dig it, what can I say.

And Sartana would kick Che in the balls (if he had any).

That's probably the most famous artwork of Hokusai. He created 36 images with Mount Fuji as a series. This is one of them. I love this artwork too. In fact I used the wave in this image in one of my poster designs.

Well I've never been to Cuba....and if you're speaking of the Miami Cuban exile community that's going to be a very different story than Cuba itself.  But anyway, all I can really speak of is Peru, where I went.....and this image is everywhere.  As I've said before, I don't think it has anything to do with an endorsement of Che or his ideology.

I can only disagree.  It is a wonderful picture.

This is very true.  More, like pretty much everyone in that time period, was a religious bigot, to be polite.  Then again, pretty much any argument between different Christian groups is based on "stupid and idiotic points of theology" in my eyes, as an agnostic.  It is interesting however that Robert Bolt, who was an atheist, felt that More - a religious zealot who was also a rather nasty misogynist from what I understand, and reportedly had a torture chamber in his house - was an admirable figure to write about.  I will never deny More's failings and sins as a person, but I agree that he is worth remembering for his stand.  Unlike most of the other martyrs of the time, he loved Henry as a friend and refused to speak out against him because he knew the reprecussions for England would be.  More's only crime (well, that he could have been prosecuted for - going after Protestants wasn't likely to get him beheaded in Henrican England) was thinking differently from the King.

Of course, Holbein was a talented artist who pretty much conveyed what he wanted of the subjects.  Ever see his portrait of Thomas Cromwell?

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c6/Cromwell%2CThomas%281EEssex%2901.jpg)

Now if that's not a nasty-looking individual, I don't know who is.

Peru, so far as I know, never actually had to suffer his presence.

Guevarra was a mass-murdering Stalinist who wasn't even competent as a military leader, if you take a closer look at his record.  Castro didn't even care for him, one of the reasons why Che ended up in Angola and Bolivia before being killed.

According to Motorcycle Diaries (if that film is right), he was there as young man, before his revolutionary times.


Another picture I love. Albrecht Dürer's depiction of his dream. Quick watercolour study, I love it because it's so interesting to see this picture among his detailled works.

You don't like the dream sequence in Spellbound or the whole film? I adore that film, whilst it's no where near Hitch's best it still contains this wonderful almost 'woozy' atmosphere through all of it. And anything with Ingrid Bergman....

I guess my favourite pictures would be all my original posters I guess because of their rarity (I own a few that have only come up once for sale or for auction and that was mine). I've got a wonderful blow up photo of Grand Central Station sitting of my study desk and I am surrounded by images of the New York Skyline.

Right, but Peru has suffered (and still suffers, I believe) the presence of the Shining Path....a Marxist terrorist/insurgent organization.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shining_Path
Yet, Che's face is still everywhere.

And Groggy....I remember from our Hiroshima discussions, you were always one for context and I quite agree.  When you're talking about him being a mass murderer, I assume you're talking about his summary executions of prisoners....and in the context of the Cold war in Latin America, my guess is that this "mass murder" you're talking about on Guevara's part is very, very tame compared to that perpetrated by the CIA and it's lackeys in countries such as Chile, Brazil, Argentina, etc. Ever heard of the "the disapeared"?  Of course you have....you're on some history quiz game show!  (If you haven't here's a quick taste: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor )

Che's popularity isn't iconic as much as ironic. Like you said, people today barely know what he was about. My opinion of Che:

He was a sadist, mass murdering lunatic. I agree with Groggy on that one.

  With all this Che Guevarra talk (I know its a little off-topic), I thought I'd ask....anyone seen the 1969 movie Che! ?  Omar Sharif plays Che, and imdb has it at a 3.4 rating out of 180 votes, ouch :o.  But it looks interesting, maybe one of those "so bad it's good" type movies, but with Sharif, Jack Palance, Woody Strode, Barbara Luna, Frank Silvera, it looks like its worth a watch.

Right....but the Cuban exiles of Miami represent a particularly militant group of anti-Castroists.  Undoubtedly there are a few good things to say about Cuba....such as it's healthcare system.  Cuba while being alot poorer has a lower infant mortality rate than the U.S.....a very impressive feat.  It's even more impressive if you compare Cuba to it's economic equals which make upthe rest of Latin America.

Don't know how you got my number (and I frankly don't care) but introducing yourself and telling me to go "Fuck myself" ( I thought a " you better go catch your fridge before it runs away" joke would have been more appropriate) is about as low as anybody can take it.

Reading back through this....I really hope you believe me, because what you said is very creepy.  And I don't want anymore escalation.


Is your name John Dudley?

The message on my answering machine was "Hi this is John Dudley and I want to tell you to go f uck yourself".

This message was made just after I left the house this afternoon (a few minutes after I left you the PM that pissed you off).

"Go f uck yourself" is a term you enjoy using loosely on here AND your name is John (I assume).

I couldn't see the number on the caller ID because it was blocked.


I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Just a coincidence I suppose.

My name's actually Jon (no "H")....and my last name is so unusual it makes me one of three people in the U.S. with it....the other two being my Dad and my grandfather.  Long story short, it's not Dudley.

This original The Birds Australian Daybill has a great image of Tippi being attacked by the birds and is rather vibrant


Believe it or not, that isn't Tippi being attacked in that representation. I didn't realize it myself until I read Camille Paglia's BFI monograph on The Birds in which she sets the record straight.

Are you trying to be the master of suspense here Dave, or are you gonna tell us? I'm not going to rush out and read Paglia's book I'm afraid, the woman seemingly becomes more deranged with each year that passes. This is the same nutter who seems convinced that Walter Sickert was Jack the Ripper, seemingly based on the fact that he looked a bit shifty in a home movie shot of him standing in a garden as a very old man. "THE SONOFABITCH!!" she screamed.

Oh, sorry, it's Jessica Tandy. If you go through the film you can find the exact moment the image is taken from, it's one of the scenes in the farmhouse.

I don't endorse Paglia's book, which is heavily indebted to a Freudian interpretation of the film. The birds manifest the characters' anxieties, that sort of thing......


Title: Re: Flat Out Great Pictures
Post by: Juan Miranda on February 14, 2007, 08:43:03 AM
Oh yes, I know the moment you mean. I am actualy a big Freudian when in comes to this picture, but I see the bird's hostility as a projection of Mitch's fears, desires and dream wishes, and not as everybody else seems to think, Melony Daniels. But that's a whole other thread...


Title: Re: Flat Out Great Pictures
Post by: Juan Miranda on February 18, 2007, 06:24:14 PM
This portrait by Bill Brandt was very important in my life. Titled FRANCIS BACON ON PRIMROSE HILL, I saw it some time in my early teens. I think it must have been in a music paper, the NME. At the time I had never been to London or even particularly had much idea of who Bacon was (or even what his paintings looked like).

(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a190/Tarkyhitch/brandt_francis_bacon.jpg)

However, the winter bleakness of the landscape and sense of sheer tension in both the framing and the expression of the subject's face had a powerful effect on me. It made me realise that photography could do and say things with as much gravity and complexity as painting (ironic as it's subject was a painter who used photography a lot as his inspiration. Not that I knew this at that time). Basicaly it made me want to pick up a camera and attempt to make pictures like this.

Eventually I realised that there was no point in trying to imitate another man's style, and I'd have to find of of my own, but this photograph above all started me on the road to image making, for better or worse...


Title: Re: Flat Out Great Pictures
Post by: Juan Miranda on February 22, 2007, 05:43:27 PM
Glad you liked it Micah.

This is a picture by another photographer who shook up how I looked at the world. In a way it's unfair to take it out of context, as I first saw it in a monograph of all the artist's most famous work.

I picked up the now classic photo book DIANE ARBUS when I was a young photography student many years ago, in the library of the college I was studying at then. At the time I flicked through this publication, I had never heard of Diane Arbus. I hated it so much I almost threw the thing away in disgust. Vile, exploitative and voyeuristic images of nudists, exhibitionists, pro-Vietnam war protesters, circus performers, people with Down's Syndrome, twins, dwarves, giants, distressed children, it was all too much.

However... The images stuck with me for weeks and I went back for another, almost guilty peek. They were expertly composed, and I use the term "composed" with more than one meaning. There was an intimacy and direct dialogue between the photographer and the subject which challenged that initial gut reaction of seamy voyeurism. How did she get most of these people to pose like this, so at ease with Arbus and her camera, so willing to expose themselves? Also there was the obvious technical brilliance of the exposure and the printing. These were not grabbed and grubby 35mm shots taken on the hoof. These have been shot with a cubersome 6x6 camera, in most cases with a flash-gun  to "flatten" (rather than "model") the subject in daylight. The more I studied her work the more I was hooked, and even spent my last year at that college using a Mamiya C330 twin lens reflex camera (as Arbus did for many of her best images). Not the first time I have encountered art I hated at first, but went back to and totally changed my mind. Anyway, "shut up and show us the picture!":

(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a190/Tarkyhitch/arbus.jpg)
Child with toy hand grenade in Central Park, NYC. 1962

If you wanna know more about Diane (pronounced "Dee-ann") Arbus, check out Google. You'll quickly see that Hollywood has used two of her best pics to create iconic cinematic moments -Buffalo Bill in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS with his cock tucked between his legs was taken from an Arbus photo from 1968, as was the disturbing image of the the twins in THE SHINING. Kubrick was an old aquaintence of Arbus's from New York. Her suicide in 1971 added to her "legend", but she remains,, for me, one of the greatest photographers who ever lived.

ETA: Sadly this was the biggest reproduction of the photograph I could find on web. Needs to be BIGGER!

Wow, I have not heard the name Conrad Dobler in quite some time. It's funny, these guys we mentioned, you don't see football players like that anymore for the most part. Athletes today are pampered, and sit out games for the littlest injuries. It pisses me off.

Hey Tuc, how did we go from big ugly football players to Marilyn Monroe?

hahahaha, I know right? I figured we were straying off topic so I just posted a pic I loved. lol Anyway, Wilber Marshall was another great linebacker who I dearly love. Yes, I'm a die-hard Redskins fan.

I'm a Packer fan, but sort of, at one time, had to be a 'Skins fan when Lombardi coached them for a couple years.

How's this for a great day of music. Roy, Fats Domino, Ry Cooder, Aaron Neville, Jerry Lee Lewis and 12 other stages with 40 + acts going on all day! For $7 bucks a ticket. That was in the late 80's. Wonder how much it costs now?

That is a great shot.  I think it's Newman though.  Probably from Pocket Money (1972).  I was reading about it recentlly.  Terrence Malick worked on the script.  I'd like to check it out.  Have you seen this one?

That's how it always begins. It's a rule of evolution. Humankind was stupid before becomming "civilized", think of it the same way.

When you mentioned it, I see it, but I'd never seen it before, not even when I was resizing the picture for her, so I think it's mostly imagination. ;D

Moreover, with the chronology of things, you should say Keira Knightley resembles Sonny. ;)

Thanks Atlas. I know exactly what you're saying Atlas. I just don't like it when people get overdramatic and say thinks like "you're smoking", "you're hot", "i want you to have my baby", or as you said, "zomg ur the hawtnz." That's uncalled for! There's nothing better to describe a girl than BEAUTIFUL.

Monet rules.

Caravaggio wasn't bad either.

Picasso's first talent = composition.

Couldn't find any decent pic of that very cinematographic painting by Degas... Does anyone know the title? That would help.

Doisneau. Same as Monet: sorry to pick his most famous work, it's simply his best.

This one is not very representative of Depardon's work (telling the truth, I was looking for another photo by him and found this one), but still damn good.

That's actually the only thing I know. I've always wondered what a strange coincidence it was.
