Landscape with the Fall of Icarus, Pieter Bruegel the Elder (probably) caused me to laugh out loud, to coin a phrase, when I first saw it.

Re: What is your favourite painting?
On a visit to Paris went to the Louvre and there is a painting in there which is literally about 6 metres wide by 3 metres high and its of a naval; battle in a storm. Don't know who painted it but it is the absolute bollocks and had me staring at it for a bout half an hour taking in all the detail.

But the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican is the only painting that I recall taking my breath away. The colours are so vivid and its almost 3D.

Van Gogh Skylark. Seen the original, simple subject but the corn appears to move in the wind, wonderful.

Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth

Not the most interesting to look at I guess, but after seeing a programme about the backstory to it by Michael Palin, I had to go and see it.

Re: What is your favourite painting?
It has to be one I've seen with my own eyes as you don't get the scale of the achievement otherwise.

Las Meninas by Velázquez, in Del Prado, Madrid is quite good.

Lowry painted a friend of mine. Can't remember which one it is, because all his people look like stick men (or women).

Re: What is your favourite painting?
My favourite is a painting I bought some 15 years ago. It's unsigned so I have no idea where it came from or who the artist is. It's an oil landscape of a little red-roofed outhouse at the end of a path, tall trees either side and the blue ocean beyond. Bold colours of yellow, red and blue. I can - and do - spend hours just staring at it, because it invites you to be part of an eternally bucolic moment.

Of the great artists, Jean Francois Millet's The Angelus was for a long time my screensaver, a reminder of hard work and the transitory nature of all things.

I'm also partial to David Hockney's work. I like bold colours.

Re: What is your favourite painting?
Not sure I agree with the paintings by Van Gogh appearing 3D of sorts.He I think was was one of a post- impessionate movement that painted vivid colours that wearn't necessarily how they appeared to the eye hence the term impressionists.
I agree seeing paintings in the flesh is the by far the only way.I once saw an American bird start crying at a Gallery in Edinburgh which I found well odd.
I'm no expert on artists or paintings I just like what I see and appreciate the sheer brilliance that goes into some artwork.
It's a bit of a poncy subject on here but like it or not there's a reason some of it goes to auction for millions and loads of classics remain national treasures appreciated by millions annually.
