One of my favorites is Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh: https://upload.wikimedia.org...

Why? Well...I don't have a specific reason, really. I just like it. Though, if I had to give a reason, I'd definitely have to say that there was a Doctor Who episode from a few years ago involving Vincent Van Gogh, and it's one of my favorite episodes to this day.

That is definitely one of my favorites as well.

When it comes to visual art, I've always been awestruck by Georges Seurats "A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte". Pointillism is something I've always tried doing, and just fail at mainly cause artistically my drawing talents are abysmal.

Poetry and Prose I absolutely love A Midsummer Nights Dream, and Love's Labours Lost. I'm a Shakespeare nut, what can I say?

Also, anything by Edgar Allen Poe

Musically two songs never fail to send chills down my spine, Ave Maria, specifically the Sarah Brightman rendition, and Andrea Bocelli's Por Ti Volare. Of which there is a duet version with Sarah Brightman.

Have I ever said I have a massive crush on Sarah Brightman? She has a voice like an angels, and I would sign up for 7 years of indentured servitude to simply meet her *sigh*

I've never seen this before and I'm a Picasso fan. It reminds me of an acid trip I had many, many moons ago while an undergrad. The way the light stretches and moves is wonderful.

As far as favorite painting go, it really depends on my mood for the day; how a work connect emotionally and frame of mind at the time. One of my favorite artist is William Turner. He has a magical way of depicting time of day with the use of light and has a grasp on of evoking a mood. https://goo.gl...

As far as sculptures go, my consistent favorite is Michelangelo's Pieta.

I glad you like! There are other light 'paintings' if you're interested.

Idk if it counts as art, but I saw an extremely artful anime called Aku no Hana which means "flowers of evil" and is a story sort of based on the French book by the same name.
It was god awful and boring but once I finished the first episode, the end song got me. I felt i had to keep going and by the end, it was beautiful when I realized the horrible things about it were all part of building the story by incorporating the feeling of the characters into the animation and cinematic style. Its real short and I would watch again because it moved me so much more than any movie, book, song or anime up to that point. It was also very conflicting trying to empathize and moralize at the same time. Don't even try to psychoanalyze the characters or their actions. I still can't figure out whether or not they even had a choice at times. That's why I believe it was "art" because I could really get a sense of what they were talking about and their environment, which is rare.

SPOILER ALERT
It was about a small town and boring people lead boring lives. A fed up student goes(is) kinda crazy and hates it, constantly complaining and causing unrest. The main guy likes books and kinda gets dragged(joins?) into doing weird and deviant things.

LOL! Why was it in German? Yeah, definitely gotta watch it subbed, or those mismatched mouths and possible absence of original soundtrack or sfx will be lower quality than what you need to get through all 12 episodes.
Anyway, the hyper realistic animation style is one of the really annoying things, too, that makes it great. Ugh, those individual teeth... So creepy, so perfect for this story.
