I'm not particularly original in my art tastes I'm afraid, I'm particularly keen an Renaissance art though:

da Vinci


The Last Supper

Virgin of the Rocks

Michelangelo (like his sculpture too...)

Pieta

detail from Sistine Chapel ceiling

Raphael

The Transfiguration

Not too keen on much modern or abtract art really.
I really find the renaissance paintings, sculpture and architecture, and admire greatly the masters who could excel in all of these. I've seen some of the work of these artists on a short visit to Rome, but I'm more than keen to go back and see much more, and visit Florence as well.

(sorry about the size of the photos by the way...)

And so is Marc Chagall...since 1986 I believe.

Since we wish to talk about living artists, these are the ones that excite me currently:

Adam Fuss:



Jeff Koons:



Of course, Fuss does photograms and Koons does sculpture (generally).

Of all the artists I listed, Chagall and Matisse are the ones long gone.

I also forgot to mention Gerhard Richter's latest paintings of Florence. They're absolutely gorgeous. Colourful impasto paint smeared across photographs of the italian city.

Contemporary sculptors? I like Mike Parr, Damien Hirst, Wong Hoy Cheong, Christo, and.... too many more to mention.
