Bertrand-Jean Redon, better known as Odilon Redon (April 20, 1840 – July 6, 1916) was a French Symbolist painter, printmaker, draughtsman and pastellist.
As you may understand, I’m not an art expert but I really love art and I hope you can discover “new” artists with my posts.
I really like symbolism and surrealism and Odilon Redon is one of my favorite artists.
Keith Haring (May 4, 1958 – February 16, 1990) was an artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s.
Such a brilliant and wicked artist… he left this world too soon!
Art has always fascinated human beings and yes… I’ve been fascinated too. This is my top 5 (painters only… )
5# LEONARDO DA VINCI
Leonardo is a well known genius so I’m not gonna talk about him. The picture on the left (“Virgin of the rocks“) is my favourite painting of his collection and when I saw it in Paris it really amazed me. It’s so alive and mysterious (I’m not talking about the Da Vinci Code but Leonardo was a really enegmatical person!).
