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

    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!

    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”

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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]

    There's an artist named Sorayama that is absolutely amazing. There's some nudity, but then, there's nudity in all kinds of art. You can be the judge.

    I must say I prefer drawings to paint but Rembrandt and Turner were masters of both mediums. In the photography department too many to mention but Walker Evans and Brassai are near the top.

    Here's kind of a cool link to a virtual art museum...

    http://tigtail.org/L_View/TVM/E/Efp.html

    Lots of fairly high quality images.

    DJ - this is a brilliant idea for a thread. What about if people post URLs of sites where their favourite artists' work can be seen? That way, we can all learn something new about these artists.

    I have so many names on my list, I wouldn't know where to begin, but here's a few (not in any particular order): George Stubbs & Alfred Munnings (horses), David Hockney (photo montages), Edward Monet, Hilary Kashiri (contemporary Zimbabwean painter), Berry Bickle (multi-talented, multi-media artist, also Zimbabwean), Viyé Diba (Senegalese), Vivienne Dadour (Australian), Raoul Dufy, Pablo Picasso, several photographers - I like Julia Margaret Cameron's portraits.

    And on and on ...

    Will have to do some research on the URLs ...

    I was refering to artists of all mediums, whether that be oils, watercolor, clay, photography or anything, it's still an artform.
