    Cezanne
    Max Ernst
    Picasso
    Basquiat (only because I grew up in NYC and he was the one of the first painters of my generation I could relate to)

    Turner's skies are amazing. El Greco (his amazing skies) and Velasquez (vibrant brush work) were also both way ahead of their times.
    Since a few people mentioned illustrators, you have to mention Frank Frazetta. Cable had a doumentary on about him. Amazing artist.
  3. The first time I saw Goya's "Black Paintings" at the Prado I was floored. Couldn't believe they are kept in the basement. The Turner Museum in London is a stop on every trip to the UK (as is the Imperial War Museum).

    ohhh yes....


    You got that one right.... Donald Fagan only uses the finest studio musicians available. He is a perfecectionist. I have seem some studio sessions where Mr. Fagan made a drummer do a take 10 times cause he felt he wasn't hitting the hi-hats hard enough.

    That mokey that fooled everybody was pretty good as well...LOL, art, well abstract art anyway, is something that I just don't care for... some tool telling me that a black cicle in the middle of a white canvass is a tortured soul looking for its freedom, well, ti each his own...
