I think my favourite artist is Salvador Dali and I do not have any originals however I do have a poster or two which I no longer have up on my walls.

I like way out art and his certainly is that.

I find it fascinating to try to work out what his paintings mean -he was an incredible artist, -very clever and talented

'Rice Paper' I would say to anyone go look his work up.

He was a TRUE MASTER of the paintbrush, and his work is heart moving!!

Hi Jonaj, I've heard of many, many artists, but I've never heard of the 1 you mention. I love the picture you provided.
by Miro
Miro if you go to Google and press the 'images' and put his name in, you will be amazzzed! he was a brilliant painter! :)

I love so many artists and have worked in a gallery for many years.I cannot admit to having a favourite artist as there are so many brilliantly talented people in this field. I love some of the major well knowns from historical periods,as well as total unknowns from today!!
I love art and have collected quite a board on Pinterest. Through that I discovered John Singer Sergeant and I love his work. Such detail and colour. There's something about the colour white in a painting that fascinates me, it must be so hard to paint, it's always full of so many other colours. Apart from him I like the usual famous ones .... Van Gough, Monet, Manet, Renoir, Carvaggio.

I don't have a favourite artist, however I do appreciate good art. I like visiting art musuems however I probably couldn't name that many artists.
I like the artist Gustav Klimt...love his designs of women...

I really like Margaret Olley and Melanie Hava. Totally different styles of art but like them both!
Sandy, I'd sent Margaret Olley a home-made collage Christmas card, every year from the age of 5, up to the year she died, because she was a friend of my parents. When her house was cleaned out, & everything moved up to a museum in her home town, near Lismore (before Paddington, NSW) I was informed that all my cards were sent up there as well!

MC Escher. I do have a tattoo of one of his woodcuts.
I don't have a favourite, but I do love art.

I can't better Michelangelo Buonarotti.
He was a REAL genius, who could work in/with any art medium. Read 'The Agony & the Ecstasy' or get/download movie by same name with the late, great Mr Charlton Heston in role of Michelangelo. Our own Diane Cilento was in it, too. She was the original Mrs Sean Connery.
Yes - three immediately spring to mind.
Jack Vettriano, a Scottish artist. His work is amazing, beautiful, sexy, dark - I could go on and on.
Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist - her art depicts her difficult life's journey, and is harsh and beautiful at the same time. Her husband Diego Rivera (who caused her a lot of grief) was a really good artist as well.
Tamara de Lempicka - her work is incredible - of the art deco period and embodies the style of that time.
Oh! Norma, have you had the chance to go to Mexico City to see Frida, & Diego's works?
Well worthwhile doing so, if you can, as they're fabulous to see in situ!

Alfred Tischbauer and Emile Lesaout
Yes Picasso.
So very different in the perception of the subject matter he paints.
I do and I can't say why particularly but I love the works of Henri de Toulouse L'Autrec, especially Divan Japonais. I even had it on a tea towel.

Yes. Collinridge Rivett (Late) as I own quite a few of his original oils as they are mainly trees and a historical home which is no longer standing as it was a bit of history in the Parramatta area.
I love the art of Joan Miro, the person I was named after, but my favourite male artist is Rene Magritte. (1898-1967) I was in Spain in Dec '98, with our eldest daughter. She found a 'Miro' gallery. There was a very long queue by the time we arrived. When we got inside, 1/2 the Miro's had been leant out to another gallery, but in there place were many, many Rene Magritte's. I couldn't believe it. I was so happy. I'd never seen an exhibition of his works before. I have a huge book of his works also. We'll be going to Victoria during Sept or Oct '17, to see a Rene Magritte exhibition! It's in the Bendigo or the Ballarat gallery.
My favourite Au artist is also Margaret Olley.
by Miro
PS: We never got to the Rene Magritte exhibition in Victoria after all. Mores the pity. Perhaps an exhibition of his may come to Sydney (NSW) sometime.
