The Top Ten
A man whose legendary works grace the modern world.
Not just a great artist, but profoundly influenced science, religion and politics right up until today
Just look at that ceiling and marvel
You can stand right next to a Rembrandt painting and find it impossible to believe that the material of clothes he has painted is not real. You almost know that it will feel like velvet and not paint!
A great Baroque colourist
A great impressionist who tackled modern subjects rather than romaticising the old
I love his landscape paintings the most, his landscape paintings are mostly very beautiful and colorful. He knew how to blend the colors very well to paint the landscapes and they were mostly meticulously done. Although he used dots and lines as the main brush strokes but he knew how to use dots and lines to paint marvelous looking landscapes. My most favorite paintings of him are the landscape near Monte Carlo, San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk, and Woman on the Parasol.
He is the true founder of impressionism, and his style formed itself upon his pure emotion and expression. Every painting was so beautifully unique, and his lilly pad series was wonderfully remarkable. Truly the greatest artist of his time.
What would offices and hospitals done without the regulation Monet prints to hang in the waiting rooms.
An artist who lived a very depressing life, but his works of art beams with happiness. Over the great periods of life, his art still stands over to astound us. The bright, vibrant colors he plasters across his paintings, his transformation and presentations of the array of emotions he beholds, he really is an artist to be deserving of a good reputation.
Would expect him to be up with Chukwuogo-Roy & Picasso
An inspiration to many who followed
The most unique painter to be ever existed, his paintings are mostly very unique and interesting to look at. And the best thing about him is that he is a perfectionist who always work hard to make his paintings as pleasing as possible.
Broke new ground during a time of convention and turned art on it's head
I believe that she gave more hope and inspiration to more people than any other artist in history - yet most of those people will never be aware of it!
In my view the outstanding artist of the 21st century and one of the best in the 20th. If only I could afford her work...
What a tragedy that she is no longer here. The world has lost the greatest artist of our time
Outstanding African Artist of the last century. Led the way for other notable artists from Africa and North America
A ground breaker and trend setter in a time of repression and prejudice
He did more for the poster industry than all the others put together
Amazing artist. Made landscape paintings that look photo realistic in a matter of minutes, and taught you how to do it at the same time.
Bob ross is amazing and no one can tell me diffrent
The Thinker must have inspired generations of artists - and thinkers.
Worked with stone, bronze, Terra Cotta and wood. His 'David' may not be as hansom as Michelangelo's but it is more realistic
One of the greatest artists of all time. He taught Boris Vallejo how to paint and his art is just as awesome and interesting.
I love his art. He and Julie Bell do everything from fantasy art to mythology to Marvel and DC. So much amazing art. I visit their site once in a while just to look at their artwork. Boris and Julie are my favorite artists in the world.
I love Boris and Julie. They always have such great art and interesting art. I visit their site every now and then just to look at their art. They're awesome.
He does music and paintings.
