the ernst sequence has powerful alice vibes, the escher is good at throwing up some of his straighter figurative work, bilibin i first encountered in the larousse mythology, the varo features in the crying of lost 49

John Singer Sargent has been my big revelation after subscribing to various drawing/museum bots (also thanks to this thread)

j.o.h.n. in evanston (john. a resident of chicago.), Wednesday, 29 June 2022 02:06 (three days ago) link

I was in NYC on my birthday in 2015 and one of my best friends (who lives there) asked me if I wanted to see the Sargent show at the Met with her. She’s into art, yeah, but she never seemed to type to want to see a Sargent show. Anyway, I agreed and when we met outside the museum, she told me she’d already seen the show twice and that it was her favorite show of the year— and then we went in, and it totally blew me away. Fantastic exhibition, just exquisite. Made me a Sargent stan for life.

I think I was exposed to Magritte at too impressionable age to not like him (he's great for young people getting into art: easy to see what he's doing and what's different about it compared to realism), but it is a very uptight version of surrealism, a little too linear really. Also one of the worst museum show experiences of my life was a Magritte show at the Art Institute of Chicago—not because of the work though, it was so incredibly crowded I was on the brink of a claustrophobic meltdown the entire time

Dali and Magritte were both terrible painters. I know you are supposed view this stuff with some historical context, but they both evoke the A level art I recall seeing on display at school to me. Which was probably just stupid kids copying them (or Francis Bacon) tbf. I think sometimes in the world of 20th century painting people made it because they had an easily identifiable style rather than being any good. Margritte was a crude talent and not in a good way and is just doing the same predictable shit over and over again. Dali was just an egomaniac with an average commercial illustrator skillset who chatted a lot of shite!

lol I can't really argue with any of that tbh. There's also the thing with 20th c. artists where if you're the first (or are perceived to be) to have an idea you get immortalized as a genius even if your one idea is pretty thin.

I do think the bowler hat thing gets at a "the surrealism of 20th c. bureaucracy" idea that I like in other works too, which might explain my soft spot

rob, Thursday, 30 June 2022 14:49 (two days ago) link

I like Magritte too, the Magritte museum in Brussels has (as you would expect) a lot of his lesser-known works, which often have a De Chirico-like blankness and lack of effect which makes them feel eerie. I'm not usually a fan of surrealism but the cumulative effect was real, for me at least.

he's a bit like Christian Ronaldo, you can admit he was an impressive talent and amazingly prolific without professing any love for the horrible man.

Saw the Dix show at the Neue Galerie maybe ten years ago. Didn't know anything about him and came away totally stunned.

it's always such a delight when this bot posts one of the Chicago Imagists

hal foster piece on a magritte biog in the LRB: https://www.lrb.co.uk/the-paper/v44/n13/hal-foster/massive-egg

not really a foster stan and i've only read as far as the obligatory paragraph on magritte's mother's (CN:) suicide when he was 13 and RM's disavowal of this as an element of content: "no one can say whether the death of my mother had an influence or not" (correct of course, since there's No Such Thing As Influence™)
