Question 48

Who is your favourite painter and why?


  1. What a difficult question! I've just read an interesting book about my best favorite painter; the book is " Il colore del sole" and the painter is Caravaggio. I've seen a lot of his paintings and everytime that I stand in front of them I feel involved in that dark atmosphere with the light that touches the essential details showing how realism and spirituality are strictly connected in all his works.

  2. As ever, I can't choose only one...I adore impressionist painters and their "impressive" ;) way of painting landscapes...Monet, Manet, Seurat, Cézanne, Renoir...

  3. I like Keith Haring because he gave colour to the dreary walls of the towns and of the tube stations. He was a genius of creativity, a great communicator, and his drawings seem animated.

  4. An excellent choice, Stefania! ["my favourite"; "every time"]

    Not forgetting Pissarro (one of my own favourite Impressionists), Francesca.

    I'm going to have to google that one, Aleph!
