RE: Inspirational paintings depicting positive values.
Not fine art but I love it nonetheless.

Quo Vadis (Where are you going?) by British illustrator and comics artist Derek Charles Eyles. He illustrated a lot of boys annuals in the 30's, Robin Hood, Dick Turpin, Westerns, Knights, that sort of thing.

This picture reminds me of when I was a day-dreaming kid and the wealth of possibilities open to me. I hope my own boy feels some of the sense of wonder and adventure I see in this picture for himself.

It's a wonderfully natural and inoffensive image and stirs emotions that any man who was ever truly a boy must recognise, yet you would never see anything like this in a school book today.

Romantic Realism contains a streak of optimism and progress one is hard-pressed to find in the modern-day art world.

it reminds me of Futurist art.

I love the ambiances in these paintings (and the music also) by the French impressionist painter Edouard Cortes. Brilliant how he captures the light/skies in the various city scenes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Édouard_Cortès

Yeah, it's similar to the earlier one I posted in tone, but I like this too. Basically me as a kid on my bike;

True story,

There are a lot of similar paintings with golden rays falling down on the Virgin Mary. I took an art class in Germany. The German word for "shower" is
Dusche
and it is pronounced like you would think. So when the the teacher was describing a similar work where the gold rays come down onto the Virgin Mary, I raised my hand and commented "so it can be described as a "goldene Dusche"

"Yes", the teacher said. "Yes, the American understands."

RE: Inspirational paintings depicting positive values.
This one is called 'Drake's Drum' by John Millar Watt (1895-1975).

Reading up on the artist I'm unsurprised to find that he was another comic artist who had illustrated a lot of the Look and Learn books I loved so much as a child.

This image describes Sir Francis Drake being re-summoned from his rest to save England in her time of need.

From Wikipedia;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake's_Drum

Quote:Drake’s Drum is a snare drum that Sir Francis Drake took with him when he circumnavigated the world.[1] Shortly before he died he ordered the drum to be taken to Buckland Abbey and vowed that if England were ever in danger and someone was to beat the drum he would return to defend the country.[2] According to legend it can be heard to beat at times when England is at war or significant national events take place

Positive values? Hope, Love, Sacrifice ...

Not a painting, a photo, but it sure looks like an inspirational painting.

RE: Inspirational paintings depicting positive values.
Very good topic, great pictures.
Here are some from my side that inspire me.


Don't know where this picture is from. The trust in faith and determination speaks to me:
   

The great wave of Kanagawa, always inspiring for me.
   
.
The last man - the picture is not historical correct but its the last soldier, holding the flag of his sunken ship in the first world war. The story tells the sailor - or sailors prefer to go down with the ship and the waving flag instead of be rescued by the British:
   

I'm a big warhammer 40k fan, so yeah:
   

We will stand tall in the sunshine
With the truth upon our side
And if we have to go alone
We'll go alone with pride


For us, these conflicts can be resolved by appeal to the deeply ingrained higher principle embodied in the law, that individuals have the right (within defined limits) to choose how to live. But this Western notion of individualism and tolerance is by no means a conception in all cultures. - Theodore Dalrymple

The expression in this knights templer painting is great:
   

My avatar, the noble knight. Honour, pride, justice:

'Horizontes' by Francisco Antonio Cano depicts the 19th century traditional colombian family in the context of early 'paisa' colonization.

Fire's on (1891) Arthur Streeton

The painting captures a critical moment during the construction of a railway line across the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney: the death of a railway worker in an explosion. 'Fire's on' was the warning call before the blast, as the gang dynamited the Lapstone Tunnel through the hillside.

Edvard Muench, "Portrait of Hans Jaeger”

[Image: writer-hans-jaeger-1889.jpg]

I saw this hanging next to "The Scream” in Oslo. The calm, masculine reserve is a stark contrast to the emotional incontinence depicted in the far more famous painting.

Just goes to show these guys can really paint when they want to. With a lot of popular artists, checking out their lesser known or early works is the way to go.

The other thing that jumped out at me at the same museum (National Gallery in Oslo) was the degeneration of art over time, accelerating at the turn of the 20th Century. The place is organized more chronologically than most galleries (or more noticeably so.) Fitting with your comment, within the career of a single modern artist the degeneration is remarkable.

Best to visit the place in reverse order. Then you can marvel at the sudden then steady improvement in artistic expression over time.

RE: Inspirational paintings depicting positive values.
@Alsos, that painting by Munch of Hans Jaeger got me curious so I duck-duck-go'd it to find out who the hell Jaeger was. Turns out he was something called a Kristiania Bohemian and believed in the following nine commandments;

Thou shalt write thine own life.
Thou shalt sever thy family roots.
Thou canst not treat thy parents badly enough.
Thou shalt never smite thy neighbor for less than five crowns.
Thou shalt hate and despise all farmers, such as Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.
Thou shalt never wear celluloid cuffs.
Neglect not to make a scandal in the Christiania Theater.
Thou shalt never repent.
Thou shalt take thine own life.

Crazy fuckers. I learn something new on this forum every day.
