Francisco Goya.
The bridge between the Old Masters and the Modern painters. His Los desastres de la guerra (Disasters of War) and Caprichos works cement it for me.

Titian gets my vote.

Although for all around great, Renaissance Man, DaVinci rules the roost.

Oh give me a break. The best artist in overall division most certainly was Moses, with his work on the Red Sea being a most impressive division, I must say.

Oh give me a break. That Michelangelo guy couldn’t draw his way out of a marble statuary quarry, I must say. Which, when you think about it, would be a rather daunting feat. I’m reminded of a story my Great Aunt Nonie used to recount, involving statues, drawing, and Michelangelo, although it may actually have been about a minister, a priest, and an altercation of crows. Memory is such a fleeting thing, particularly when it comes to remembering things.

I think Monet was pretty brilliant. Lovely work and he revisited his subject matters different times and seasons which is cool.
