One of my favorite artists is Vincent, and when I visited the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, his paintings brought me to tears.....You can see his soul in his thick brush strokes. New theories say he did not shoot himself. Someone else did. Guess it will always be conjecture one way or another....To you, Vincent!

Love Monet, too. Will have to get a couple of pictures of his paintings over here, when I am less lazy....

I like the paintings of August Strindberg for their mix of abstraction and figuration.He is an influence on my own work:

I also like Morandi for his deceptive simplicity and the way he stuck to his subject matter - namely still-lives of various pots and vessels:
