Whenever we hear the name Vincent van Gogh, we immediately conjure images of The Starry Night or The Starry Night over the Rhone or The Cafe Terrace at Night. However for people who are not huge fans of Van Gogh have not yet witnessed some of his other masterpieces.

His paintings are prolific and so emotionally moving. There is so much one could see in them and most importantly for people like me without much knowledge as far as art is concerned, can also appreciate his works.
I'm no art connoisseur, but I think Van Gogh more than deserved his title of being referred to as one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century.

In no particular order.
I'm a big fan of Minimalism, although by no means are all of these artists considered to be Minimalists.

Caravaggio is one of my favorite's, as well.

His life was weird. The more famous he got the more vicious and cruel he became. He ended up killing someone.

I think you'd like Jeremy Geddes (not a killer, but... I actually had these around from another ATS thread).





Blew me away when I first looked at these.

Hieronymus Bosch, H.R. Geiger. Crazy stuff, love it.


The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch is one of my favourite things...I have it as my mouse mat. Every time I look at it I find something new...

Also, Audrey Kawasaki. One of my all time recent fav's. Her subject is always a beautiful girl.

I hadn't heard of him before this year, but I since doing so, I am very taken with Georges de La Tour.

The Fortune Teller



Brawl



Joseph the Carpenter



The Penitent Magdalene



I find all his paintings, even the solitary subjects, to be full of stories.
