We have admired artists for as long as I can remember. The world of art is a fascination for most of us. Over many years most of the art work was limited to people that shown to have talent. I checked on line for some of the most famous artists that have embraced the market and collectors. Many famous museums over a century have most of the outstanding works of the artists listed below:
What makes an artist great? It takes talent, of course, and a genius for innovation. Also, having some sort of vision helps. But a truly great artist is distinguished by a unique ability to take his or her moment in time and distill its essence so that resulting work becomes timeless. Limited to dress and hairstyle, for example, the Mona Lisa is just a woman from the Renaissance. But her expression—subtle, ambiguous—has given her a mystique that will survive the ages. And so it goes, not only for her creator, Leonardo Da Vinci, but also for the other artists (many of them included in New York museums such as The Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim
Most famous artists of all time Leonardo DA Vinci
The original Renaissance Man, Leonardo is identified with genius, not only for masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa (the title for which has entered the language as a superlative), The Last Supper and The Lady with an Ermine, but also for his drawings of technologies (aircraft, tanks, automobiles) that were five hundred years in the future.
Andy Warhol beginning as a commercial artist, brought the ethos of promotion into fine art, even going so far as to say, “Making money is art.” Such attitudes blew away the existential declarations of Abstract Expressionism. Pablo Picasso. Pablo Picasso is implicitly synonymous with modern art, and it doesn’t hurt that he fits the generally held image of the fugitive genius whose goals are balanced by a taste for living big. Vincent van Gogh. Van Gogh is known for being psychologically unstable, but his arts are among the most popular and most famous artists of all time. Van Gogh’s technique of painting with flurries of thick brushstrokes made up of vivid colors squeezed straight from the tube would inspire subsequent generations of artists.
The Art World has changed. Scholars believe teaching art in schools helps in development of young lives. Teaching art in school can develop architectural skills. These skills can be used later in life for a brighter future. We see more art schools and some craft stores also teach art. The love of art is still one of our passions.
Researching world art, I found over 70,000 images in our collection of World Art Group. Home décor, Asian and World culture, Botanicals and Floral, Animals and Nature, Photography, abstract and the list seems to never end. There is no mistake what we call modern art has taken the market by leaps and bounds. There is nothing more beautiful than painting, we have fallen in love with art. Furniture stores have embraced big Canvas Art, which they are using to market furniture. Builders are using big Canvas Art and Pictures to help sell their Model Homes.
I have experience with children that have Down Syndrome, and its’ amazing what art can to do to open up a new world for them. These children will amaze you with what they can accomplish. Their paintings have sold for $300 to $500 at local shows. Perhaps in the future art will become a healing force for people with mental illness. Is it possible that art can change a person’s life? I wonder if art could work better than medication, I hope someday this could be possible. I believe art is the entrance to the soul of a person, only if we could paint it beautiful.
