50 Great Painters

Add to my lists | Print this list

Painters whose work is worth seeing and studying.

I have found, in many visits to art galleries, that these artists’ works consistantly prove rewarding, and reccomend them to 43 Users on this basis.

I have not included artists whose fame rests on controversy, such as Pollock, and whose work is meretricious.

I agree with the list. But I think John Singer Sargent should be somewhere in there.


Many thanks — 6 years ago

Don’t exactly agree with the ‘order’, but very good list indeed and thanks for compiling it.


Biased, are we? — 6 years ago

I’m sorry, but I disagree with the basis of exclusion. I understand the whole freedom of speech and opinion, but claiming that Pollock’s (and other artists’) fame is “based on controversy” and “whose work is meretricious” is beyond expressing one’s personal opinion. Who are we to claim that of anyone? Even art critics refrain from making such biased accusations.

This isn’t a list you can “complete”. It’s just a way of introducing some artists.
