I love art. love it. i guess you can say i come by it honestly. both my mom’s house and my dad’s house are literally wallpapered floor-to-ceiling in artwork. i thought for my thursday thirteen this week, i’d do thirteen of my favorite paintings. i could sit here all day and list you about 150, but i’ll save you the boredom and follow the rules and only give you 13.

1. Bar at the Folies-Bergere – Manet

2. Young Dancer – Rucker

3. On the Terrace – Renoir

4. The Starry Night – Van Gogh

5. Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jette – Seurat

6. Dancers in Blue – Degas

7. Girl with a Pearl Earring – Vermeer

8. After the Prom – Rockwell

9. Children Playing on the Beach – Cassatt

10. Girl with a Watering Can – Renoir

11. Sunflowers – Monet

12. Young Girl Reading – Fragonard

13. Madame Monet and her son – Monet


  1. degas has long been one of my favorite painters.
    remember the kid’s game memory? usually they are pictures of frogs and clowns and such. you can only turn over two and have to remember where everything is at and eventually match up the pairs. well, when i was younger, i had an impressionist paintings version. i guess mom wanted to make sure i grew up loving the arts.
    happy TT

  2. Great subject! Thanks for inserting the pictures instead of links…I think a combination of short attention span and having to leave to take my son to school would have precluded me from clicking on all the paintings, but I’m so glad to have seen them. Great way to start my day.

    It’s my first week doing Thursday Thirteen on my blog!

  3. What a wonderful list! I share your love for these paintings. I’m proud to be Dutch when I see Van Gogh, Vermeer and the others.
    My TT is about Halloween facts.

  5. Great list. I’ll admit the only one that was familiar to me was Starry Night.

    Comment by Jeff on October 26, 2006
  6. I love Mary Cassatt. I think my favorite has always been La Toilette. Her paintings of a mother and her child have always moved me.

    Have a Happy!

  7. Great TT. I love 1 and 4.

  8. You obviously know a lot more about art than I could ever hope to know, but I LOVE the selections you’ve posted! I have a book written by a nun, I think, who critiques art, discusses it. I need to dig that one out. 😉

    I’ve posted my Thursday Thirteen, too. Enjoy!

  10. Those are all beautiful paintings. I love Monet’s work – I was forunately enough to see an exhibition of his paitings, as well as a Van Gogh Exhibition, at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Great stuff.

    Happy TT. 🙂

  12. That is a great list! I knew some of them, but others were new to me and I like them all!

    happy TT!

    Comment by Sadie on October 26, 2006

  14. I don’t see any cats in this paintings. Unless maybe there’s a cat in that “Sunday Afternoon” one? I bet they’re dogs. Stupid dogs.

    Happy TT! Meow!

  17. I love these romantic pieces of art!

    Matisse, Renoir, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Klimt and Leighton are a few of my favourites.

    Comment by something blue on October 26, 2006
  18. Great list! I don’t know a great deal about art so it would be hard for me to list 13; maybe I’ll give it a whirl sometime.

    Comment by Missy on October 26, 2006

    Comment by Danielle on October 26, 2006
  23. What a great idea for a TT. I think my favorite on is the first one.

    Comment by Tracie on October 26, 2006
    Being an artist, I love to look at other artwork and imagine what the artist was thinking and feeling while he painted. I love Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Matesse…the list goes on….
    Thanks for that little Showing!
    my TT’s up!

    Comment by BecK on October 26, 2006
  25. We used to have #4 above our bed. Then, when we re-painted, the blues clashed and it never went back up, but it certainly is a fav of both Jeff and mine!

    Comment by Amanda on October 26, 2006
  26. What a great great list! I love Monet, Manet, Cassat and Van Goh of course

    Comment by Sparky on October 26, 2006

  30. Great list. I once received a postcard with #6 on it, and I’ve loved it ever since.

    Comment by Twyla on October 27, 2006
  31. I love the paintings. The one by Fragonard has always been a favorite of mine. I also like Vermeer, but my favorite of his is The Milkmaid.

    Great job!
