Uberfuhrer's posted link about art and personality gave me this idea.
I thought it would be interesting to list our favourites painters and see how personality can affect (or not) our preference in visual arts.
Feel free to add pictures of the paintings that particularly speak to you and explain.
Here's my list:
Pieter Bruegel (the Elder)
George de la Tour
The Group of Seven's paintings, especially J. E. H. MacDonald, Tom Thompson and A. J. Casson
My favourite paintings are generally sober Baroque "scènes de genre" and pictures associated with Realism, works that honestly depict ordinary people in their natural environment, making their daily lives just as valuable and honorable as those of important figures.
