Who Are the World's Famous Artists?

     Our art history has been pretty colourful. We have had artists that are so talented and have shared to the whole world their remarkable masterpieces that have motivated and inspired, not only just their period but up until now. Right here are my 3 very best artists and their short biography.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Renaissance

It is devoid of debate that the number one spot goes to the wonderful Leonardo Da Vinci. Normally called him as the father of Renaissance, or a master of perspective, the impact of Leonardo Da Vinci nowadays extends far beyond the realm of inventive endeavor.

Some of his renowned artworks are Mona Lisa, The Last Supper and The Baptism of Christ.

Vincent Van Gogh, Impressionist

The paintings of Vincent Van Gogh could be the most conveniently acknowledged and remembered of everybody. He ordinarily paints each day objects, such as sunflowers and an empty chair, but he has a way of conveying his intense feelings.

Van Gogh was born the son of a pastor and spent his childhood in a cultured and religious environment. He first worked in a bookstore and selling artwork prior to becoming a preacher just like his father. In 1880, he turned to the study of artwork with the dedication to be a famed artist someday.

Van Gogh endured intense bouts of melancholy and there was even a time that he tried to attack his closest buddy and peer, Gauguin, with a razor. The assault was luckily unsuccessfully but Van Gogh ended up cutting off a part of his own ear. Van Gogh's depression intensified and he was accepted to an asylum.

In 1890, two months following his release from the asylum Vincent Van Gogh killed himself. Some of his famed paintings are Starry Night, Sunflowers, Cafe Terrace and so much more.

Salvador Dali, Surrealism

The paintings of Salvador Dali depict bizarre characters like burning giraffes and seemingly melted wax watches. The artist described his own works as 'hand-painted dream photographs'. Dali is well recognized for his a lot of abilities apart from jewelry style and design, book illustration, painting as well as theatre work.

Daliís most well known work is the Persistence of Memory, painted in oil on canvas in 1931. As with his other surrealist works, there is a typical image that is in some way irrational, such as the watches that appear soft and fluid in this painting. Dali said that the concept for this painting came while he was imagining about Camembert cheese one night soon after dinner - such a terrific way to be inspired with an artwork.

There are so much more equally well-known and talented than the above three artists, but this is just my opinion. And we won't be able to deny that the budding new artist in our generation are also not far behind in terms of talent and creativity.

If you are interested in acquiring copies of their artworks, there are already many websites online that will reproduce famous oil paintings. You can easily buy oil paintings online - even those made by these famed artists.
