SOME OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS AND THIER WORKS


VINCENT VAN GOGH


There are many single events which stand out in Vincent's life (the ear-cutting is, of course, the one that springs to the mind of most people).
In my opinion, I am often rich as Croesus--not in money, but (though it doesn't happen every day) rich--because I have found in my work something which I can devote myself to heart and soul, and which inspires me and gives a meaning to life.

MAURITS CORNELIS ESCHER

"I try in my prints to testify that we live in a beautiful and orderly world, not in a chaos without norms, even though that is how it sometimes appears. My subjects are also often playful: I cannot refrain from demonstrating the nonsensicalness of some of what we take to be irrefutable certainties. It is, for example, a pleasure to deliberately mix together objects of two and three dimensions, surface and spatial relationships, and to make fun of gravity."

SALVADOR DALI


`Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.'

Salvador Dalí, Declaration, 1929.
Spanish painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and designer. After passing through phases of Cubism, Futurism and Metaphysical painting, he joined the Surrealists in 1929 and his talent for self-publicity rapidly made him the most famous representative of the movement. Throughout his life he cultivated eccentricity and exhibitionism (one of his most famous acts was appearing in a diving suit at the opening of the London Surrealist exhibition in 1936), claiming that this was the source of his creative energy.

HENRI MATISSE


Henri Émile Benoît Matisse was a French artist, leader of the Fauve group, regarded as one of the great formative figures in 20th-century art, a master of the use of color and form to convey emotional expression.
'Instinct must be thwarted just as one prunes the branches of a tree so that it will grow better'
Henri Matisse

GEORGES SEURAT


A French painter who was a leader in the neo-impressionist movement of the late 19th century, Georges Seurat is the ultimate example of the artist as scientist. He spent his life studying color theories and the effects of different linear structures. His 500 drawings alone establish Seurat as a great master, but he will be remembered for his technique called pointillism, or divisionism, which uses small dots or strokes of contrasting color to create subtle changes in form.
Seurat rejected the irregular brushstrokes of impressionism in favor of pointillism. Many artists imitated Seurat's method, but his technique remained almost unrivaled in its blending of colors.
