what makes you think that?

Re: what's your FAVORED PAINTER ??? the art topic !!!

i just think the drama is so obvious, predictable. dark, broody, chiascuro, easy. his paintings are 'in your face' so to speak (at least for the time) and i fiond it a bit ugly
also to me he painted the same painting over and over, (mind you, some might say that's what all painters do) but I am not convinced that is integral to his work, like Auerbach for instance, who I like when he paints the same thing over and over...

hehe i had a hard time explaining why i didnt like caravaggio to someone else recently. essentially, i think there are better painters and drawers, he is famous because of his crazy life of acting crazy and killing people, not his paintings.

Bit obvious but love Salvador Dali. Bacon might be my number one as well. Also Turner, Seurat and Matisse. Also really like Diego Riveras's murals after my time in Mexico (Frida Kahlo = not so much).
