Salvador Dali, the persistence of memory.

I am a fan of Marc Chagall. Got to see a bunch of his work at a gallery in Vegas. I just connect to his use of colors and the abstract nature in some of his pieces. Robert Debeyer had works in the same gallery. I appreciate his detailed sense of humor. Picasso is another painter I enjoy. Pollock was a maniacal genius as well

Lots of different ones. Goya, Picasso, De Lempicka, De Chirico, Dali, Duchamp, the Chapman Brothers, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (and her husband Charles Rennie Mackintosh), Bosch, Munch, Escher, le Corbusier, Klimt, Bruegel the Elder and his offspring, John Everett Millais, Kahlo, Dali, Magritte, Beardsley, and many more I'll think of through the day and think "I should have added her/him."

Millais isn't my favourite artist, but his painting "The Bridesmaid" is one my favourites (my favourite depends on what mood I'm in, as it should). She lives not far from me in the Fitzwilliam Museum, and I've spent hours gazing into her eyes trying to work out what she's thinking.

To be quite honest. I couldnt say. Art is art. Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What is art? And is the art of others truely art? From mundane, to abstract, from obscure to insane, hell even art for the plain jane. No matter the artists intent I chose those whom have depth and whome can keep my intrest. So.. To make a long story short. I chose art by any artist.

Totally agree. Although I am partial to Georgia O'Keefe. Who knew flowers could be so beautifully sensual.

I may not believe in them but I like angels in art. Well, some of them, specifically by James Christensen. I own a numbered copy of his print,"Evening Angels". His work is fanciful, busy and colorful. I also like the "angels" done by Nancy Noel, mostly because her subjects are children and she does beautiful work on them. Non-angel work, Nancy Howe does wonders with sunlight in her paintings, I particularly love her animals and David Lee's work, florals w/ birds is lovely.

My favorite art form is sculpture however. I am a woodcarver, less so now than when I was younger, with less arthritis. I do still have projects I hope to do. I love the old carousel figures by masters like Muller, Carmel and Looff and I've done a number of miniature replicas but it is still my hope that I will do a half sized figure.

Superb ! I wish I could afford a room full of Art Deco bronzes .

I love busy art. Art that has a lot of stuff going on. I discovered Bosch when I was killing time at a library one day. His art is dark but there is so much to take in. It reminds me of the Where's Waldo books.

Depends on what kind of art you are curious about? Music? Painting? Rock carving?

This work always brings me to tears: that she was Tanguy's (a favorite surrealist) widow, just makes it all the sadder.

So many! I can't choose just one...

Sculptors: Alberto Giacometti, Rodin

Painters: Dali, Kandinsky, Tanguy... I am a huge fan of many Modern Artists.

The cat is Giacometti's. The pet was his brother Diego's. ALL of the brothers were famous artists.

I love the Impressionists. Also Matisse and Chagall. And my favorite painting has always been Van Gogh's "Starry Night" -- especially after seeing it at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. To see Van Gogh's wild brush strokes close up blew me away.

I just dig your green hair!

My very favourite is Turner , but I really enjoy most of the impressionists too.

Lucas Stibbard as a theatre director. His attention to detail is stunning. Eugene Gilfedder as a stage actor. Currently, Marcel Dorney as a playwright. Particularly "Harriers", a work that's up there with "Riders to the Sea" IMHO. Roger Waters as a songwriter and musician. Lois McMaster Bujold as a writer. I think I've read everything she's written. Evan Hollis for etching and print work. Both for the aesthetic and the sly commentary. My brother for sculpture. Not surprising that we share similar sensibilities in that area. Catherine Ketton's still life in oils. She captures light in amazing ways. Stelarc's really challenging performance art. Gang of Youths for pop/rock. Bowie for Bowie (its own art form rivaled only by Gilbert & George). I'll stop there.

I am somewhat uncultured and uneducated in Art History as it pertains to paintings and sculptures and such, so I tend to be limited to mainstream popular stuff that "everyone" knows. Specifically, I find Van Gogh's "Starry Night" mesmerizing and I think of Salvador Dali's "Persistence of Memory" when I have to spend an extended amount of time outdoors on a hot Texas summer day.

Just stumbled across this guy the other day and fell crazy in love with the landscapes. Makes me miss painting a lot, so Richard Cartwright atm

For sheer emotional impact, it is Fritz Mackensen, a painter in Worpswede,the artist colonie near Hamburg. When I get homesick, I look at his landscape paintings , the wide, juicy land, the muted colors and the overarching sky. On my walls, I have Paul Klee, Alfred Sisley and Marc Chagall.
I recently found a print of Diego Rivera, a Mexican woman weaving on the backstrap loom. I look at that picure often. It is such a contrast to the North German landscapes. Rivera makes everything sharper by framing each feature n black. It reminds me of Mexico, strong contrasts and harp edges.

I recently saw the Chihuly Collection in St Pete. It was amazing.
