The late Kandinsky is oddly enough one of my favorite paintings ever. Many times I've contemplated, and quickly dismissed, the idea of tattooing that particular work wrapping around my arm. Nice examples, I dig it.

That 1881 Br'er Rabbit illustration is just perfect. Reminds me of the illustrations from that rabbit themed puzzle book which was popular in the late eighties.
