I love Dali's work (I'm also fortunate enough to be in the same city, as his museum, with the largest collection of his work).
I'm a big fan of MC Escher (does surrealistic drawings), as well as Boris Vallejo (does a lot of fantasy drawings and oil paintings...)
For old school, I'm a big fan of the Baroque period (such as Rubens, which, as luck would have it, I'm in the same area as the museum with his
largest collection as well...owned by the Ringlings). I also like the Dutch masters, such as Rembrandt (for his use of contrast), and Vermeer (for
his tromp l'eil---"fool the eye" style).
I like DaVinci, but more for his other talents in science, but he was a talented artist as well.
Michealangelo, was certainly the finest sculptor I've ever seen, and an accomplished pencil artist as well...
Thanks for including me in your favorites Salem....I'm honored....
