My ten favourite artists! This is a lot easier than books and a million times easier than song!

Opher PeteThis is art!

I love art and have a number of favourite artists that I never tire of. These are they:

a. Rene Magritte

The man looks so ordinary but his mind zings about with weirdness. I like weirdness. He makes me laugh.

b. Salvador Dali

Not only an incredible mind but what an artist and showman.

c. Pablo Picasso

An imagination loose in the world.

d. Auguste Renoir

I did not much like Renoir until I got to see his paintings displayed in Paris. The colours shot out at me. He is an artist that does not transfer to prints. Books do not do him justice.

e. Edward Burra

I was knocked out by his paintings of Harlem and the underworld.

f. Auguste Macke

A German impressionist who left an impression on me. I loved his colours.

g. Heironymus Bosch

A surrealist from the past who depictions of hell were astonishing.

h. Vincent Van Gogh

That use of colour was incredible. Such a shame that he wasn’t appreciated in his own time.

I. Paul Gaugin

Those mauves get to me and I’m colour blind!

j. Wassily Kandinsky

I could loose myself in all those shapes and colours.

k. Joan Miro

It looks so easy and yet it is the hardest thing to do.


OK That’s my ten. They look incredibly predictable. It makes me think I should have dredged up more of my more obscure likes.
