Top Ten Thursday: favorite art

This week's Top Ten Thursday is favorite pieces of art such as paintings, classical music, sculptures, literature, theater plays, operas, etc. As you can tell, I'm more into paintings then most type of art. Here's my list:

01/ Automat by Edward Hopper — you might have noticed my blogger icon is a recreation of this painting but not exactly, it's here if you would like to see it.

02/ Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major by Johann Sebastian Bach — I just love this song but I can't explain why I like it. I have this song in my iTunes and Yo-yo Ma is the artist. You can listen here.
Image is from here.

03/ Love Letter soundtrack by Remedios — this is the soundtrack to the 1995 Japanese film of the same name which I also love. The soundtrack is so perfect for the film and it has been one of my favorite film sountrack for a long while.  It's very dreamy and delicate and well, you just have to listen. I couldn't find a site that have samples but I did find this youtube video for the song 'frozen summer' here.


04/  Strawberry Fields in Central Park designed by Bruce Kelly & dedicated to John Lennon — when I visited Central Park, I got lost trying to find this art as I didn't have a map but I did find it and it's beautiful though I thought it would be bigger. Strawberry Fields is at West 72nd Street, NYC 10019, more info here

05/  Portrait of a Young Woman Drawing by Marie-Denise Villers — I've not known this piece for long but I do love it for it's light and shadow which is perfectly rendered especially her white gown. There is a somehow half-amused look to her face that I like very much. For more info go here.

06/ The starry starry night by Vincent van Gogh — always a favorite though I've never seen it in person
07/ Musician Angel by Rosso Fiorentino — don't know why but I like this angel and even created an art piece inspired by this piece

08/ Young Girl Reading by Jean-HonorĂ© Fragonard — don't you just love the folds/shadows in her sleeves/dress??

09/ The Brooklyn Bridge designed by John Augustus Roebling — I have walked the Brooklyn Bridge countless times and it always seems like I've walked it always in winter, not even sure how that happened.  More info here

10/ Jimmy Liao art — anything Jimmy Liao draws is my favorite and I want to create art like his. I actually have about twenty of his books and whenever I sort of get struck for ideas, I flip through those books.
What are your favorite art?
