I am reading a phenomenal book right now calle "Pictures and Tears: Stories of people who have cried in front of art"

I was wondering if anyone else has been that emotionally moved. I would love to see what paintings/photographs have moved you to tears or some other religious experience.

I have over this one

Go to http://www.salmaarastu.com/ click on paintings, 1999 and number nine (I love number one as well)


It was just a moving picutre and I have no clue why, I think it reminded me of cool winter Sundays at night when we would sit and watch the snow fall. The dark colours are quite evocitave.

Number 8 moved me, But not to tears.

Anyway I've never been moved to tears from a piece of Art work, but I'm open for suggestion'

These are gorgeous pictures! I loved 14.

I have been moved to tears by artwork, it can be anything from a painting to a sculpture to a photograph and if the emotion takes me, I'll cry a little :-D There is an incredible film called 'Himalaya', which is set in a tiny village in the Himalayas (duh!) but the combination of the imagery and the music is so breathtaking that I just can't help myself, I always cry a little at that film.

I have been moved to tears by art, and by voiceless music. Art reaches so deeply into the soul. I am amazed by it so often
