Stretch:
I got mildly addicted to a computergame called Gabriel Knight 3: Blood Of The Sacred, Blood Of The Damned.
One of the coolest features of this game is the use of around 50 impressionist paintings. The game does not credit them, though. Several of these are rather obscure.

I spent a good part of 2 weeks trying to find the names of the paintings. It's a lot of fun, but occasionally tedious. By now I've identified most of them, but several remain unknown and my library is running out of impressionist books.

So, if you can help, please do!

Image
Image
(and two more of these. I browsed over 800 Degas paintings looking for these. And I didn't find them. I did grow a mild allergy to Degas's ballet dancers. Man that guy was obsessed.)

Image


And this next one has been the most frustrating...
Image
It just screams Cézanne but I couldn't find it...

There are several others. You can find them on my still-under-construction GK3 Gallery:

Degas probably got his first erection at a ballet I guess.

You Googling for it? Good luck... I found that was not exactly a successful method with most of the paintings. I mean, for Cézanne's Still Life With Skull & Candlestick you can use a search engine, but for a landscape that's a lot harder.

The women dancing , IMO , are definatly DEGAS ..... here's a charcoal sketch that I found...

There are hundreds of ballet paintings by Degas available @ http://www.edgar-degas.org/. And they're not in it... and I checked all 813 pics in there... :shock:

I think it might be Camille Pissarro.

Didn't find any at http://www.camille-pissarro.org/. It could be in a private collection of course, and then they're rarely on the Net.

And of course you were right! As Degas made over 1,000 images of dancers (ranging from charcoal sketches to sculptures) so finding the specific ones was rather tedious... I found a couple where I had to look several times to see if they were, but they weren't.

Fortunately today I browsed through a Degas book at the bookstore and found:
Image
My guess is they used a copy or something for the game, it looks very different but the exact compositions of the three pics can be found on it.

Well, that leaves me with:

You were right, it was Pissarro! Church at Gisors, 1888.

I also found the beach in the top post (Emil Schuffenecker: Beach at Concarneau) and the one with the farm on my page (Erik Werenskiold). That still leaves me with the etchings, the dancer at the top, and that oh so cursed harp.

As I was looking for yet another picture, I decided to dig up the mysterious lady again. I found the other one I was looking for (Vladimir Tretchikoff's Chinese Lady, features in Hitchcock's Frenzy and in Alfie and in Rocky Horror), but in spite of browsing thousands of pictures, I couldn't find the ballet dame.

Since we have several new members now, I thought I might bump it up again, hoping anyone knows it:

Bump. I'm curious if you found this?

My guess is it's in there with the others: I found another Degas where one of the dancers has a similar pose.

Second girl from the right.

Again I'm working on art recognition: this time on art pieces used in this music video. What got me started was that I recognized several Hieronymus Bosch-paintings here. He's one of my favourite painters, and one of my favourite Dutchmen and Brabantians on top of that. He's very beloved in his home town of 's Hertogenbosch, they have a Bosch boat parade every year and more. Everything except actual Bosch paintings: for the Bosch-year, they did everything they could to get a Bosch-painting to the man's home town, but to no avail.
'Course you might all know Jeroen Bosch: he's on the cover of WOIIFTM.

Aaaaanyway... I found all the Bosch ones, plus the one Robert Beer and the Bronzino, but I still have problems at:
0:58
1:20
1:59
2:19 (gosh, the amount of Madonna and child paintings I checked already...)
3:07
3:18
3:23
Feel like giving me a hand?

I found that one. It's in the National Gallery and it's a painting of the baptism of Christ, just forgot the name of the painter right now...

Guys? I'm not kidding and y'all helped me out so wonderfully last time...
Here's two of them. I also spent aeons looking for the right floral still life with tulip and rose, but there are more of them than you can shake a stick at.

I was guessing Giotto on 3:23 but my searches have come up empty

I found this one - embarrassingly it's on a painting that I'd already found being used: then it was the top section of angels dancing. Apparently I didn't even bother with looking beyond that... tsk. But I found it now: it's by Alan Elsheimer, The Baptism Of Christ.
