Art Animalia - Le Poisson

Around the Fish
Paul Klee

Winslow Homer

Fish in a Dish

Nick Bantock

Margret Hofheinz Döring


  1. What great paintings, have always been a Klee fan. These add some lovely colors to a gray, gloomy evening. Thanks!

  2. Glad you liked these. It was fun finding them.

  3. Kool, All! The Homer surprised me, the Bonnard was very, well, Bonnard, and the others made me coo and giggle, both the conceptual triumph of the Bantock and the octopussy joy of the Doring!

  4. I LOVE the Doring - I would like to paint like that. And I have long loved Klee's art and his strange dreamy inner world. Another inspiration for me for years now.

    I have to look up Doring.

    And I have to go look at your other posts when I have more brain (tomorrow, I hope) - including your Peace Tree post.

  5. Ooops - see what happens when I sit down to search the Internet after Grenouille was the last one on? I post under his moniker.

    I haven't looked at the Internet temp files after he's been browsing - who knows what I'd find (ignorance is better).

  6. I love the image on top, and the one on the bottom is pretty cool too.

  7. What clever ideas you have; it is always interesting to see your simple but unique choices of what to post about! I think I really enjoy that more than anything else. But the art here is splendid as well. I sincerely enjoyed them all, but my favourite is certainly the Bonnard. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but it struck my fancy :)

  8. I'm glad you guys liked the fishies. I forgot to include Matisse's goldfish but that's one that we see a lot, I guess.

    SG2: Hey, sweetie! I love Bonnard in general. I can't choose a favorite in this series, actually. Maybe the Bantock, which is the least typical choice given that he's up against the likes of Homer and Klee.

    I'm glad you like my silly little art posts. And I'm thrilled that you like them enough to come by and leave a comment once in a while.

    All my love,
