Greatest Painters of All Time
"Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world. No one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world's greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived."
(from the Doctor Who episode Vincent and the Doctor)
When you see a Van Gogh you know it is a Van gogh. His works all together made a new style his command over the colors is impeccable. VVG is the greatest painter of all time not just because of his skills but how easy it was for all the generation to comprehend or interpret his paintings we all have different views but we cannot understand everything but once you see a VVG you know what the painter wanted to say. SIMPLE yet so MAGNIFICENT, Easily the greatest artist of all time. Wish he could see how influential he became.
Master of disguise, the art is smart and intelligent. The best at Starry Night, what the mind can do is nice sometimes.
Other artists paint in paint. Van Gogh paints in emotion and feeling. Should be number 1 full stop.
Van Gogh is great, but Da Vinci was phenomenal. He had technique, advanced shading, unique sketching, and his overall painting was one of a kind. He's the best.
A pioneer and a mentor for all painters past his time. Without Leo, painting and all art would be 500 years behind.
The man was way ahead of his time!
He was living in the future while the other were living in the Renaissance!
Where the hell is Bob ross?
Love as well how abstract the art is it still leaves more wanting from attention as a real cool different view point. Has much to offer and to notice the technique hold true and reinvent itself is what in truth lifts out ahead as Pablo Picasso being one if not best painter tobadd that new dimension in visual art. A perfect contribution that begs the viewer it is plain to sight a future is to behold with it. Nice work!
Pablo Picasso's artwork is magnificent. Many people think he just scribbled on some paper or a canvas but it actually takes time to make abstract art like his. And it is a lot more creative and interesting than a painting with an predictable and obvious storyline to it.
The painter has a new kind of soul delivered to the visual industry. Beautiful new interpretations and extrapolations. Fine tune with Picasso!
The song When a Woman Cries by Dio is of sound as the painting The Weeping Woman is of visual by Pablo Picasso. Awesome job mate!
As one of the best painters would not expect in least for some sort ofmtrade to have taken place. The extenct to disfigurement for a job well done is noticeable. When beautiful things become seen as monstrous it is a pity, however this is an art Michelangelo became a master at, so nothing that much to be so sad about...one would suppose. Good portfolio as well.
Despite being an arrogant douche, he's one of the greatest painters of all time! If not for his attitude, then I might've actually put him number 2 in my list of the greatest painters of all time, only second to Da Vinci!
No training no teacher who taught him how to paint, plain nothing! that's why he's the greatest, pure skill and talent, I mean you look at his works is just, superhuman... greatest painter human kind had ever seen
Technically even better than davinci. But davinci has a better feeling in the paintings. Michelangelo was the Light genius. Nobody, even davinci could't paint that natural as him. Davinci phantasised much
Rembrandt could do it all! Very smooth and finely wrought portraits to heavy impasto and sweeping brushstrokes that are a precursor to the Impressionists. He is unwavering in his study of human emotion and human expression. I believe that Rembrandt was the master of light and shadow--chiaroscuro--that draws us in and makes us look for the source of light. Like Beethoven, he took the tragedy in his life and made it art.
There's something wrong about this list. Unlike bands, songs, or even poets, most people know the name of just 4-5 painters (mostly the first 5 items on this list). Rembrandt's name is very widely known but otherwise I don't see so much special in him. He even lacks a recognisable style, check out any other baroque artists.
Alkadikce I don't disagree, but art wouldn't be the same as it is today if not for Rembrandt!
The painter of painters the man who started as a young boy and continued to old age
I adore his work. I really do. It's amazing.
The master of surrealism
His art is one of the most interesting things to look at on planet earth
Raphael use to believe as a sculptor. The profession is painter and despite being that youthful there are some real good interpretations of paintings about life and dreams. More impressive as an underdog in the study got done a lot better than would allow in imagination. Incredible!
"He living, Nature feared to be defeated.
Now that he's died, Nature feares to die"
This is written where he lays, in Pantheon
His show is so soothing to watch and he paints great paintings in such a short amount of time. I just wish more kids today would find this show.
The Happy Painter. "Just add a happy ol' cloud right there..."
Paints beautiful pictures from imagination and has a lovely speaking voice.
Bob Ross was amazing at painting, sad to see him go before he had reach his time.
He taught us the joy of painting.
For me, it's always been between Monet and Van Gogh. Only reason I'm voting for Monet here is because Van Gogh is already #1 and I imagine he'll stay there.
His paintings are enticingly beautiful.

Very intricate drawings about nature and beautiful environments to depict. definitely a favorite, fine drawn art with skill and perhaps mastery of the times.
I am including his architecture as well in adding him here. Let's just say he had some pretty interesting ideas. I have no idea what style if any he would fit into besides that his art generally looked vaguely like actual scenes but not very close and that he hated straight lines and exact geometrical shapes.
Dramatic, touching pieces.
Always will be the greatest painter, total game changer.
Vermeer begins where Leonardo left off. No doubt, Leonardo was the most amazing human ever. He took a scientific look at what makes art function and introduced movement and storytelling to paint. However, for me, his paintings always look like his real money earner, theater and stage settings with actors "emoting". It took Vermeer to introduce living breathing people you might actually want to know, with deep emotions, in settings where you have perhaps visited. His mastery of lighting alone creates more emotion than most. Every object in his paintings have secret meanings, morals, stories you could take years to fathom. How else could someone create and entire movie based on a single picture. Truly they speak a thousand words.
He's my favorite
Although most of his painting make me want to throw up, he greatly represents his era.
