    Art lovers - who do you consider to be your favourite painters?

    Here are a few of my favourite Canadian artists. I'm a big fan of the 'Group of Seven' artists, Tom Thomson and Emily Carr. Of non-Canadian artists, I would have to say Monet.

    Tom Thomson: 'The Jack Pine'
    http://www.groupofsevenart.com/Thoms...ne_Framed.html

    Lawren Harris: 'Lake and Mountain'
    http://www.groupofsevenart.com/Harri...ain_Regal.html

    Emily Carr: 'Painting the Canadian Soul'
    http://www.lackenbauer.ca/Hist103/7-1_Carr.htm

    Claude Monet

    Paul Rudolph, a Sarasota, Florida legend.

    You want artists or "painters"? Paul Rudolph was an artist who used the Mid-Century Modern as his canvas. These "paintings" are all over Sarasota, FL. I have been honored to have been invited to tour about 9 or 10 of these homes. Marty Lieberman is a real estate agent here in Sarasota who only lists these Mid-Century Moderns on her website:
    http://modernsarasota.mfr.mlxchange.com/?Page=7987573

    These homes are as much an expression of art by Rudolph as Carr or Harris is.

    Actually I was hoping for painters. I had just come back from an art opening for a local painter and was in the mood for seeing what other's consider to be good art. Although I agree with you that art comes in many different forms, including architecture and landscaping.

    Not being religious, I still love iconography. Giotto being one of the masters. I've tried convincing my wife to try her hand at painting religious imagery from her past - Ukrainian Orthodox. Their churches were adorned with gold statues. We did a tour through Saskatchewan taking pictures of various Orthodox churches which I'm hoping inspires her some day.

    I can appreciate Tanner's skill, however I prefer a looser style to painting ... except for the above iconography.

    I had not heard of Parn before so I googled her work. I recognize her rabbit figures, or at least I assume she's the originator of those figures???

    I'm with you on the religious stuff. Clearly religion has been a prime inspiration for some of the world's most stunning art. Certain scenes like the Annunciation have been interpreted so many ways, so many subtle nuances expressed. I love Tanner's because for me, it injected a realism to that event I'd not seen before.

    Giotto just represents such a quantum leap - technically and cognitively. For me, that is the onset of the Renaissance right there.

    Re: Parn - yes to the best of my knowledge. She has a great eye; I love her photos also.

    Photography is painting with light. And on that note, Harry Callahan is my favorite.


    Gordon Parks and Dorothea Lang are high on my list too.

    He was a great painter and a chain smoker. http://images.search.yahoo.com/searc...fp&va=bob+ross

    He loved painting mountains and forests and rivers. He had an unsual flair that really only can be picked up by actaully watching his PBS shows or watching the parody that Family Guy did of Bob Ross.
