My list of favorites is almost endless, but at the moment I `d like to mention one of the most important female artists of the modern age. Her name is Frida Kahlo and during her lifetime she was very close to the Surrealists. However mainly influenced by Mexican folk art and by the Realism of her husband, Diego Rivera, she created seemingly naive pictures and centered her attention on personal suffering. Therefore, her works clearly depicted inner dialog which might reflect some features close to the Surrealists, but statement of an artist herself explains everything about her, "I have never painted dreams. I painted my reality."
Some of her most notable pictures:

My all-time favourite painter, El Greco, an artist much ahead of his time.

Image

I've recently found out about this fantastisc artist named Paul Cadden. His drawings look like photos!

Image

Other favourites are:

* Gustave Courbet (his painting The Origin Of The World continues to shake the very foundations of our society :lol: ; The Desperate Man 2 portrays a man with an impressive look on his face).

* Tamara de Lempicka (described as a UFO arisen between the two world wars).

* Luis Royo (and his portraits of mighty women).

* H. R. Giger (no one else has his vision, one of a cold, senseless world where humanity is crushed by the machine - although it frightens me! Damn, I've recently had to restrain myself from buying one of his books. Hell, it cost only 10E!)

* Last, but not least, the magnificent Victoria Frances.

LOL! Probably because I'm not that into Johnny Depp. I did like that film he co-starred with Angelina Jolie, though.

I love Michael Hussar.

He did a painting workshop recently in London, and I was so excited to go, before I found out it was about £600 to attend. Haha, maybe not. :worried:

One of my favourite artists of all time is John William Waterhouse. I've been in love with his work ever since I was a little boy, and his paintings still captivate and mesmerise me to no end.
Anyway, here are a few highlights:

Hylas and the Nymphs (1896)
Image
Lady of Shalott (1888)
Image
Ulysses and the Sirens (1891)
