Lady Version and I share quite similar taste in painters, particularly Hockney - though his recent documentary last week revealed just about zilch!

I do love me some Rothko, Pollock, Hopper, Gericault and Delacroix.

My favourite place in the world, however, is the Art Noveau section in the Musee D'orsay.

A few artists I really like have been named liked Bosch, Magritte and Francis Bacon. I know he's not strictly a painter but I adore the work of M.C. Escher. Truly one of my favorite artists. I can stare at his stuff for hours.



Wassily Kandinsky.


I also was a fan of Van Gogh growing up.

I went to Portland recently where they had an Escher exhibit. It was great. I had a blast seeing some of his prints up close. Seeing Metamorphoses III in person was amazing. It's nice to really appreciate its size in person. Also seeing his designs on playing with infinity was fun. It was a privilege to see his work.

I also recently got into another artist whose work really blew me away: Henry Fuseli. Just an all around amazing painter who captures realistic looking nightmarish images. He shot right up to become a new favorite.









This last one is his most famous, which was recreated for the poster of Ken Russell's Gothic. I thought that was pretty cool.

My inspirations:

Alan Lee



Van Gogh


Modigliani


Klimt
"The Goldfish" aka "To all the Haters!"

Mucha


John Singer Sargent

I tried to duplicate this painting one in college... I would have to live 3 lifetimes in order to get the man's technique down. A MASTER.

Romaine Brooks


John William Waterhouse



Egon Schiele


James Jean

He did the Prada 2008 ads and even had his work painted in their stores, as well as the covers for the comic series "Fables".

I know I'm forgetting more. I'll probably post the rest later.
