I have a print of that in my spare room. I had absolutely no idea what it was or its meaning. It just co-ordinated  with the colour scheme 😬

Thanks .

Andrea Mantegna, The Lamentation over the Dead Christ

"In painting, foreshortening in the depiction of the human figure was perfected in the Italian Renaissance, and the Lamentation over the Dead Christ by Andrea Mantegna (1480s) is one of the most famous of a number of works that show off the new technique, which thereafter became a standard part of the training of artists."

Not a painting but one work of art that really impresses me (and I've not yet visited) are the Kelpies

One painting (which I have seen close up) that is impressive to me, is the one Flure mentioned - Dali's Christ.
