Igor Morski Madonna

Via a comment over on [livejournal.com profile] croneitude's LJ I've discovered the artwork of contemporary Polish surrealist Igor Morski. He was born the same year I was. His stuff is whimsical, weird, and often disturbing. He works with photos a lot, heightening the effects that, for example, Magritte got with super-realistic depictions of unreal things. It also gives his stuff a very commercial look that sometimes seems trite. But there be demons in those frames ...

Caspar David Friendrich, View of Arkona at Moonrise

As I've said before, Friedrich is such a goth! One of the interesting things about him is that he apparently never, or at least rarely, gave his paintings titles, so all the titles you see for his works were given by other people and tend to be descriptive rather than allusive. I've seen this one also called "View of Arkona with Rising Moon and Nets," "Cape Arkona," and "Moonrise on an Empty Shore" (which is probably the most poetic of any of these).
