    I like Ralph Steadman's use of color..

    However the content isn't really for me.

    Tempio de Segesta (Steadman)

    I like the content of this one, though.

    Probably more of an illustrator, but I also liked his use of colour and his strokes.

    Claude Monet is my favourite.



    I also love the House of Parliament ones a lot, too. Really, all his stuff is amazing. The computer scans do them no justice, you have to see them face to face to really get just how rediculously amazing his use of colour is to give things shape, depth, and perspective. You can only really see how detailed and intricate it is from a distance, while the opposite is true for most paintings. They seem blurry up close and almost three dimensional from about fifteen fet away. It's nuts.

    I also love Van Gogh and most of the impressionism and expresisonism stuff. And Dali.

    My favorite artist is probably Wassily Kandinsky. This one is entitled "On White II."

    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"

    My favourite Monet is not very representative of his work

    Camille Monet on Her Deathbed



    But I love the way he paints such a subject in the same way he paints his landscapes.

    ed111, I love Hopper, as well. I also dig Delacroix and Fragonard. I tend to be a fan of either totally idiosyncratic artists, or of one or two exemplars of a particular style.
