Who Are Some of Your Favorite Painters?


I have been creating a series of posts about favorite writers in a variety of categories, and I wanted to expand to considering other art forms. With this idea in mind, I want to consider favorite painters.  I have loved and studied art history as an interest throughout my life, so I want to explore what painters others like.

For this post, I will include

Leonardo da Vinci




Claude Monet




Vincent Van Gogh



I ask all of you: who are some of your favorite painters?

  1. Recently I came across one post on social media & believe me this was by far the most realistic artwork I’ve ever seen in my life by Chinese artist leng jun. you can definitely look into that stuff.

  2. You’ve included three I really like, especially Van Gogh. As for other painters, I recently discovered some of Picasso’s early works, which are closer to realism and definitely among my favourites.

  3. Chagall – for his almost childlike use of primary colours. Hopper for his voyeuristic American street scenes (particularly nighthawks). Picasso for his range of skills – ( in his youth he was an amazing classically trained artist before he became more experimental/cubist and later, toward the end of his life, was more involved in ceramics and sculpture). He was also a stage set designer and poet. BUT there are many many others all very worthy.

  4. This might be the most difficult question you’ve asked here for me, Charles! 😉 Having studied art history I would probably make your comment section explode if I were to list them all! 😂 So instead I will limit myself to only 3: Boticelli, Caravaggio and Vermeer. 😊 (Ah! It really hurts to stop there! 😂)
