Thomas Moran (1837-1926)
In 1871 Moran went west with the Hayden Expedition to record the wonders of the Yellowstone area, making annotated drawings and watercolors later used to illustrate articles in the popular press as well as the official report. Moran's watercolors convinced the U. S. Congress to set this area aside as America's first national park.
To bring up images from his subconscious mind, Dalí, a Surrealist, induced hallucinatory states in himself by a process he described as paranoiac critical. He depicted a dream world in which commonplace objects are juxtaposed, deformed, or otherwise metamorphosed in a bizarre and irrational fashion. Dalí portrayed these objects in meticulous, almost painfully realistic detail and usually placed them within bleak, sunlit landscapes.
The Ocean Series is a Remodernist response to the color-field paintings of Mark Rothko. Intriguing, relaxing, and evocative, these colorful images appeal to serious art lovers, those who meditate, and ocean lovers as well. Originals, prints, and affordable signed posters can be purchased on line.
The central theme in my painting is the search for stillness, the sort of profound and lucid calm that is the result of meditation or contemplation; another main theme is the relationship between humans, the ocean, and the atmosphere. The intent of my work is to create an ambiance where the spiritual dimension of this relationship can be experienced.

Orosco, a renowned muralist, studied at Mexico City's San Carlos Academy of Fine Arts. He painted murals, mostly al fresco, between 1922 and 1949 in Mexico, New York City (at the New School for Social Research and the Museum of Modern Art), New Hampshire (at Dartmouth College), as well as at Pomona College in southern California.

Botticelli (1444-1510) was one of the most individual and influential painters in Florence at the end of the fifteenth century. His melodic, linear designs have been greatly admired and are readily apparent in this panel. This composition is unusually sculptural for the artist. Forms are substantial and their disposition leads the eye into a space firmly defined by the stone parapet and middle ground arcade. The rounded hills of the landscape in the background complete the plasticity of the design. In this work, lyricism is bound to the description of natural data and the suggestion of human grace. The subtle combination of function and decoration in Botticelli's use of line provides the poetry of his paintings.
Picasso went through the Blue Period (1901-1904) characterized by a predominantly blue palette and subjects focusing on outcasts, beggars, and prostitutes and the Rose Period (1904-1907) of pinks and beiges, light blues, and roses, with circus people and harlequins as subjects. Then came Cubism, the fragmenting of three-dimensional forms into flat areas of pattern and color, overlapping and intertwining so that shapes and parts of the human anatomy are seen from the front and back at the same time.
Gauguin was born in Paris but lived with his mother in Peru (1851-55). In 1871 he entered the firm of a Paris stockbroker. He painted on Sundays. Gauguin met Pissarro in 1875 and initially Gauguin’s work was close to the Impressionists in subject matter and color scheme. He exhibited with the group five times. By 1886 he had abandoned small, visible brush marks in favour of large areas of flat color and introduced an innovative color scheme that suggested a sense of heightened reality. Gauguin called this technique Synthetism and declared that he hoped painting would return to exploring the “interior life of human beings”. Starting in 1883 Gauguin had devoted himself solely to painting. His travels to Brittany in 1886 and, a year later, to Martinique and Panama, had led him to be inspired by primitive arts and he looked for ideas in Buddhist temple sculptures, Japanese prints, medieval tapestries, folk art and the architecture of Breton Churches. His work became concerned with dreams, myths and visions, influenced partly by his time in Tahiti, where he moved in 1891.
Leyendecker's mastery of the commercial art medium surpassed that of his better known follower, Norman Rockwell. Rockwell idolized Leyendecker. Leyendecker practically invented the American Santa Claus and did invent the New Year's baby. The U. S. Postal Service used his New Year's Baby on a stamp issued December 27, 1999 to commemorate the millenium.
Peter was born Eoyang Hsun in Shanghai in the summer of 1923 as the first of four children of Eoyang Keh. He received his Christian name, Peter, and his artistic name, Yin Ye in China in the mid 1930s. Eoyang Yin Ye appears on many of his works as applied by a seal.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851)
A romantic landscape and marine artist, topographer and universal art visionary, pulsating with colour and atmospherics, Turner is considered Britain's greatest painter.

Chris Ofili won the Tate's prestigious Turner Prize in 1998. He is famous for the Holy Virgin Mary, canvas with elephant dung, exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999.
Holy Virgin Mary
A gorgeous, sweet and respectful treatment of the subject, rendering her as a sternly hieratic African personage in petal-like blue robes. Much of the painting's surface shimmers ecstatically with glitter in yellow resin. Tiny collaged cutouts of bare bottoms from porn magazines evoke putti, and allude to the element of fertility in Mary's symbology, which Ofili did not invent.
As for the pachyderm product, it is one smallish, attached lump, capped with what appears to be black-and-white beadwork (in reality pushpin heads) in a design of concentric circles. Elephant poop turns out to be innocuous-looking stuff, not unpleasant in color and almost decorative in texture (lots of straw).
How it works
Upon registration a snippet of html code is provided which includes an assigned id.
Participants should promply install the html code.
Participants may update their information using their id and password.
All of the information may be edited except for the id.
The rankings are reset each month.
Certain referals are not counted and do not advance a site in the rankings at all; others are only partial counted.
These include, on occasion, referals from sites by servers with the same or substantially similar IP numbers within a short
interval, referals that would cause the ratio of total hits in to be out of proportion to the traffic out, referals
from small windows or frames or that otherwise appear not to be from an actual viewer, and referals from pages without
the logo or the word Passionflower in hypertext.
Slowloading images are omitted even if the participating site is among the top ranked sites.
