I suppose Sheppard Fairey (Obey) is a bit beyond 'cult' these days.

I have a couple of 'artists proofs' of his.

The subject in the 'Fascist Killer' print is nobody specific; but rather an archetype of the musician/rebel/folk lyricist, etc.

The source image for this print has been established as a Peter Webb photo of Denny Laine (Moody Blues, Wings) taken in 1967.

The US flag one is worth quite a lot from what I can gather. FUck knows I need some sort of pension!

Not 'paintings' of course, but neither are the Ravilious pics.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Umberto Boccioni "The City Rises" from 1910 :

Which is quite a spectacular progression from a typical painting of his from only the year before "The Morning" :

I was very impressed by the tate retropectives of both Sonia Delauneay and Fahrelnissa Zeid, but perhaps they are better known generally than they were to me.

Speaking of Hiroshige, this artist, Katsura Sunshine, performs rakugo, traditional comical storytelling in English and here he explains some of the Edo period art we all love today.

I've always liked British Vorticist Wyndham Lewis

Despite his flirtations with Fascism which were only cured by a trip to Germany in the late 30s. By that time many of the more liberal arts establishment thought - too little to late - and he continued to be an isolated figure, and always on the right and an anti-communist, so Toby should like him :) .

Orwell laid into his writing, probably with good reason, but I think there is something in is art

Say what you like about Toby, but I bet he can spell "fascism."

We've got The Floor Scrapers in our lounge. It used to look fabulous in my very old terrace dining room, it looks vaguely odd above the brick fireplace here. It is one of the few paintings I made a pilgrimage to see - like seeing a live band, I got up close and my heart was racing. I don't know what there is about the picture in particular that makes me so happy, but it really does.

He was a fantastic artist and writer.

We were lucky enough to get to the exhibition of his work at the Imperial War Museum North just before it closed, last month. It was a really good portrait of work from throughout his career, including all the pieces you posted here. I'm really glad we made it.

That portrait of TS Eliot, seen up close and at full size (it's rather big) is truly stunning.

Hardly "cult" though, it's Wyndham Lewis ffs. Even the spellcheck on my smartphone knew who he was.

Excellent work from Diamond Dog in this thread. Most enjoyable and enlightening. Thanks.

I nominate Maureen Nampijinpa Hudson for your viewing pleasure.

And, from across the Tasman, I also really enjoy Liam Barr's magic realism - this one called Salvation:

Do you think Roberts was inspired by Caillebotte?
