The Shore at Egmond-aan-Zee by Jacob van Ruisdael
Georgia O’Keeffe, c.1918, Blue Flower
It’s like some giant, radioactive vagina. This is not an anti-feminist critique. Her penis skyscrapers drive me insane, too. It’s just fucking ugly art!
Battle of Gibraltar by Hendrick Cornelisz Vroom
Jacques-Louis David, 1784, Oath of the Horatii
From the Louvre (click link for full description):
In the 7th century BC, the three Horatii brothers, chosen by the Romans to defy the Curiatii, the champions of the town of Alba, are swearing to defeat their enemies or die. As they receive their weapons from their father, the women of the family are prostrate with suffering. This painting, a royal commission, was the manifesto for a new style, neoclassicism. Both the architecture of the room and the poses of the warriors are rigorously geometrical.
