  5. The 10 Best Painters of All Time … Well, According to Me

It depicts an entire city moving out led by its captain. A unique aspect is its dark varnish that gives an impression of night scene. It is currently housed in Riksmuseum in Amsterdam. Painted by Raphael, this painting contains pictures of famous philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle walking in the middle along with other philosophers on the sides.


20 Most Famous Paintings of All Time

It is now located in the Vatican. Probably the most famous painting in the world is Monalisa by Leonardo da Vinci. This painting is currently displayed in Louvre, France. Here is our list of the most famous 35 paintings ever done. Which of these is your favorite? Do let us know through your comments. Ahmad in a nutshell is product of passion, enthusiasm and adventure. He loves to write around anything that involves behaviors, art, business and what makes people happier. I dont think there can be ONE compiled list of the most famous paintings since there are a lot of countries with their own cultures and eras and mindsets, and its a broad area to categorize, but I think you did a good enough job anyway.

However I feel that this list is quite narrow, there are quite a few revolutionary movements you missed like dadaism, de stijl, minimalism, abstract expressionism, to name a few. However you did a good job, thank you. So many men, so many minds! What one considers interesting, someone may consider absurd.

Is it actually possible to make a list of the best paintings? I think this is a well group of choices. Of course, there are millions of paintings, but I can go with this list. It is so bad that if new need to do homework what people think if there is naked people so please remove them We know they are important reason but please think before you attach By deva. What is wrong with painting naked people? Btw: millions of people like to look at naked women. Are you from another planet? As I exited an art gallery some years ago the curator of the museum asked if I enjoyed my visit.

I told him that there were a few exhibits that I really liked. He told me that that pleased him as if there was but one that I liked they had done their job. Although each artist has great sense of art but I like william tyller painting. He was a very emotional and contemplative man. I have seen 5 of them so far and it makes me sad that some are not possible to see.

This cannot be possible that no painting from the Indian or Arab or Chinese Culture can be present on this list. Aa a matter of fact it was bought by Napoleon. I like several of them, the Van Goghs, the Rivera, the Seurat. Pls note that the caption has Suerat, which is incorrect. I have long loved the Dali, have tried for years to write a poem based on it, but nothing says it better than the image itself. I think the Pollock IS No. There is pretty much every painting that I assumed. It should be in top 10 if asking me. La Moulin de la Galette and Massacre of the Innocents are the reality of the history.

Monalisa is my favorite. There are a few mistakes to correct in here. As an earlier commenter pointed out, the Pollack painting depicted is not No. Not a single woman artist is represented here. This is another list simply perpetuating the myth of western male superiority.

There are many great paintings by women and it is tedious that lists like this systematically overlook the work of women and no one even comments on it. My favorite artist is Van Gogh because I think the way he does his work is amazing. The way he draws pictures, he put marks.

Like he puts a lot of marks and then it turns into a picture. Old guitarist by Pablo Picasso is also my favourite painting. Yes 35 paintings and not one female artist named! Also, not one Japanese artist named, not one black artist named, not one artist under sixteen named. None of these are complaining but we simply must complain if there is a gender imbalance, right? There is no doubt that women have produced great art but the point here is not to fight a crusade for equality but to admire paintings.

If there was interest in female paintings then it would be viewed or popular. Painting wasnt exactly a female profession until recent times. Name me 2 famous female generals, 3 famous astronomers, 4 female pioneer medical researchers.

The World's 100 Most Famous Paintings

It is a struggle because they werent involved to the same extent as men. Next you will claim obese gays, or eskimos are under represented. For fucks sake. I are right but this is just example what adverts do to people mind Ugly painting are sold for million and the art is forgotten. I also agree that Picasso was a great artists, but I believe Las Meninas by Valazquez is an amazing piece.

As well as Dali. Very nice images. Indians are the real Art lovers.. You could have mentioned the artist name along with the painting details.

Makes us do extra homework by googling the artist of the painting. Where is the art of Degas?? Any masterpiece would fetch an astronomical price if it ever landed on tbe art market as the Pollocks did so I have trouble with the decision to include multiple Picassos and Van Goghs, and instead choosing to omit at least one painting by another master, like Whistler, or even a Boldoni my personal favorite portaiter if the 19th century. And the name of the artist of the Juliette Recamier portrait is missing. Great job Ahmed Raza. You came closest to completion or perfection than most others who dared take up this daunting task.

My favorite is the girl with the pearl necklace, soemthing about her eyes, good looking women too, for the top piece has to be The Creation of Adam, its epic on a scale I cant even imagine. Two people who strive to popularize art are already doing the inconceivable. Thomas Hoving, the former director of the Metropolitan Museum, and Sister Wendy Beckett, the British nun whose television programs and books have made her a one-woman art industry, have separately compiled lists.

Neither author follows the top rubric to the letter, nor arranges the choices in any order, but it hardly matters. Hoving's book, titled ''Greatest Works of Art of Western Civilization'' Artisan, , promises to give readers ''the pinnacles of quality, elegance and artistic strength, the best mankind has created, the hallmarks of unalloyed genius. Her publishing company, Harry N. Abrams, declined to disclose exactly what will be included but offered a taste of her taste: classics like the bust of Nefertiti from B. Even from this scant evidence, a consensus emerges. Peter C. Marzio, the director of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, is one member of the establishment who is not horrified by the whole subject.

He even suggested two lists, one drawn up by experts and one voted on by the people. Marzio said. The one work that might make it on both lists is the 'Mona Lisa,' and maybe the bust of Nefertiti. Another subtle feature is that the man's left arm appears to bend backward The painting depicts a typical Sunday afternoon at Moulin de la Galette in the district of Montmartre in Paris.

In the late 19th century, working class Parisians would dress up and spend time there dancing, drinking, and eatinggalettes into the evening. This painting is an example or realism — a style that shows exactly what the eye sees.

Plato and Aristotle are the two in the middle. He also included Michelangelo and himself elsewhere in the painting. It is considered by some critics to be Matisse's masterpiece. This Fauvist painting follows the example set by Impressionism with the overall lack of a central focal point. The painting was ordered as "Harmony in Blue," but Matisse was dissatisfied with the result, and so he painted it over with his preferred red. It is in the permanent collection of the Hermitage Museum.

His jealousy inspired this symbolic composition which Munch painted in several versions under various titles After several years of painting in the countryside, he turned to urban landscapes.
