Poll response recorded, but I had to say for the record that I am not a fan of the style.

Gimme a good Surrealist any day of the week.

Hmm, this was the first I heard of the Neue Sachlichkeit, but after some Googling, they seem worth a deeper look. Thanks!

I think that I liked the poll better than any Impressionist painting I have ever saw.

I think the use of beautiful colours is the best side of impressionist paintings.

Speaking of the use of beautiful colors, do you know the Pre-Raphaelites?

My myopia is like impressionism in 3-D. I used to be a terrible snob about it and go around asserting that none of my 20-20 friends really understood Monet. Anyway, give me a good expressionist painting any day; it's got the colorful, brushstrokey technique without the bucolic subject matter.

That's a good point. I like expressionism, too.

I especially like Pissarro, but enjoy a good Dali, too.

For a real good time, Brueghal's The Wedding is a horndog's delight.
