Picture Study, Part 4 – Lists of Artists for Study

Trying to find a list of artists to choose from is hard.  I finally compiled a list that could be shared with links to more complete lists.  I separated the artists into their historical class, but please remember to mix and match for your Picture Studies.  Often similar styles and methods were used in each era.  This makes a lot of their works look “alike” so to speak, and it is refreshing to mix the studies up.  Also, it makes it easier for you to identify the picture correctly later in other settings. 😉

    Hey, Isn’t Liz Lemon or a name along that line an artist? Her paintings are good enough you think you are looking at photograghs-I have always enjoyed her artwork. I recognize many of the artists names. Will keep this in mind for subbing in art!
