The Top 101 Painters of All Time

Matisse

Who would be on your list? I am more fascinated about other peoples’  rankings than my own, so I perused this list at the artwolf.com with great interest.  Not surprisingly, Pablo Picasso held the top spot. Michaelangelo was 15th and my personal fav, Matisse, was number 20. Lots of big names and names that were less familiar to me. Interesting stuff.

  1. Oh, there are so many wonderful painters! I’d put my grandfather, Jens Rasmussen, at the top of the list because he was so directly influential to me. He created well over 300 landscapes while he was living.

    After that, in no particular order, a few of my favorites are Michaelangelo, Da Vinci, O’Keefe, Rafael, Van Gogh, Klee, Vermeer, Dali, and Renoir.

    Mind, these are just painters. If the list were to expand to artists working in other forms, the list would have to be longer than 101 artist. If the list included fiber artist, I’d have lots of favorite pieces wherein the creator has been lost to history.
