but today i was on campus at school..and i saw this awesome painting of a ballet dancer (it was a replica of course) on a wire/tightrope..the scene was outside..and there was another dancer sitting, looking to be lacing up her slippers..i wanted to buy it then/there but it was mad expensive even though it was half price. its a big painting.i still want it, lol. i'll see if its there tomorrow..but she gave me an artists name..and i totally cant think of it! i thought it was mark something. im so dumb for not writing it down i thought i'd remember!!!!!!!!!!!!! im just frustrated..i've never seen this painting till today i have even searched yahoo images and looked on art.com...if anyone has so much as a clue to what im talking about! lol or know the artist..let me know! peace

Just type into Google "Degas" and you can see all sorts of his stuff.

I love the period, Impressionistic. You might also like Monet, Serat, Cezanne, and Renior.

didnt see it at allposters.com. i feel this painting was done by someone very more recent...the figures/style was very modern lookings..not like edgar degas' paintings. which i like also..o well...

Marc Chagall?

It sounds like a Degas. He was famous for his dancers.

Woops! didn't see your previous posts.

If not Degas...and a simple sounding name...and more recent looking...

It seems like you're looking for a 20th c. American Painter, which could be a whole bunch of people. My training in art history includes AP Art History in high school and another art history class in college and regular trips to an art museum, nothing super-involved or super-formal, so I can't pull any recent Marks out of my head other than Chagall. Maybe search google for like 'Mark' and '20th Century Painter' (if paint was the medium used...)

She said the lines were more modern and clean, not Degas which is softer impressionist. Chagall was Russian but lived and studied all in France, maybe this is what she is seeing. It even could be Talouse le Trec, but she said the name was very simple.

yea i swear it was like a name (like) mark smith..but then i got side tracked and forgot it!! i dont think it was anyone super famous or well known since i cant find it.(the painting that is, online, etc).i dont even know what else he painted..but..it was outside, almost like on rocks/canyon set..a ballerina (just in pink tights black leotard..on pointe shoes on a tightrope/wire. there was nother ballerina in plain clothes sitting on the rock ground looking to be putting on her shoes..im on a mission!! lol tomorrow i'll ask again..she just said it was a replica..i mean who knows it may even be local..or something..thanks for all the help though! the backround was just the sky i believe.

I actually took a snapshot of it and still have it somewhere.

Someone should help me too since she found her art

When I was in college I had some art class and we had to study different eras or forms of art or whatever, and there was one painting, probably after renaissance but before impressionism.. or it MAY be in renaissance. Anyhow, it was an arabian woman, laying in bed, I think topless but not 100% sure, and it was very mystifing and dark.. I think there may have been a cat curled up on the bed or something but maybe not. I do know that we studied how the lines did not match up on her body but they were contorted for aesthetic purposes.

That sounds like "the trophy" by Charles Keegan, but he didn't have a cat, lol.
