Chris - that link of yours is excellent ... I'm going to indulge myself and spend some time there RIGHT NOW!

Turner - that's the man - knew I'd missed an important someone out! What a genius ... [sigh]

Sam,

Interested to see Stubbs in your list. I'm not a great fan of horses after a trip to a friends stables in Eire resulted in me playing a similar role to Ben Hur's competitors in the chariot race !
This was reinforced by a trip down a precipitous mountainside in Crete on the back of a mule (wooden saddle) some years ago.

My mother has always been a Stubbs fanatic, so I suppose it rubbed off on me ... and I was lucky enough to see a very comprehensive exhibition of his work at the Tate back in ... oh, mid 80's I suppose. It's not just his rendition of the equine species, but also his beautiful compositions, colours & tones, light etc.

Yes, horses do have that effect on some people - seems you either love 'em or hate 'em!

How could I possibly forget Norman Rockwell? There's an artist whose work I can understand, and I don't have to look at it all day trying to figure out the hidden message.

I wouldn’t worry about ‘the message’ Ed even the artists are baffled………….

To quote Turner “He (Ruskin) sees more in my paintings than I ever painted”

Ed, I am very fond of Norman Rockwell...I don't know most of the other artists mentioned but anything Norman Rockwell did was always lovely. I guess I go for the art that makes me feel good/happy/serene....nothing that makes me think to deeply..., just my two cents!

What about Escher??
Perhaps he was to "different" for some. I like his work!
