    I wouldn't call that Art Deco. That looks like Matisse, who isn't usually very Deco. Nazi and Soviet monumental architecture of the 1930s is Art Deco. Cubism is often Art Deco. Gaston Lachaise's Standing Woman is pretty much Art Deco. The Chrysler Building, especially the eagle gargoyles about a third of the way up, are Art Deco. Clayton Frye's The Spirit of Power, on the front of the Niagara Mohawk building, is mega-Art Deco.

    The Dream by Henri Rousseau
    Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Gatte by Georges Seurat
    Little Dancer of Fourteen Years by Edgar Degas

    Great American Love by Robert Indiana
    Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow by Piet Mondrian
    Marilyn by Andy Warhol
    Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) by David Hockney

    And one day I hope to own something by Bratsa Bonifacho

    ME!!! My favorite artwork is by ME!!

    No, really...

    Edward Hopper, Vermeer, and Ed Ruscha, and Dorothea Lange spring immediately to mind, but I've had the opportunity to work with many brilliant artists over the years that no one here has probably ever heard of because they aren't famous.

    I have to say that some of my favorite art is commercial art done over the years that rarely has a name attached to it-- labels, ads, old postcards, etc.

    At the moment, there are two exhibitions going on in the Boston area that I am dying to get to:

    EDWARD HOPPER
    PEM | Joseph Cornell: Navigating the Imagination

    That's really cool, I've never read anything about that building before. Yeah, my example was a long shot, I was going to use the Chrysler Building as an example but I decided to stick to paintings.
