Some Great Works I love From Some of My Favorite Artists In History

Note: I will be posting the titles above the pictures.

Pablo Picasso

Portrait of Igor Stravinsky

Head of a Man

Decanter Tureens

Composition With A Skull

Marc Chagall

Chagall painted in a style all his own, combining elements of Expressionism, Symbolism, Cubism and, to a lesser degree, other Modernist art movements. A prolific and multi-faceted artist, Chagall left behind him thousands of works in many different techniques and media. It is because of this I love his work so much and it was difficult to narrow it down to just a few, and the most I could narrow it down to is 8.

Blue House

Blue Village

Burning House

Clowns At Night

The Magician

Claude Monet

Monet is recognized as being one of the creators of Impressionism and he was the most convinced and consistent Impressionist of them all. From his earliest days as an artist, he was encouraged to trust his perceptions and the hardships he suffered never deterred him from that pursuit.

Monet is one of the best of all time, and I absolutely love his work, so it was even harder to choose which works I should include, and narrow it down to a few. I managed to narrow it down to 11.

Impression: Sunrise

Salvador Dali

Salvador has made some of the wildest, craziest, and coolest paintings ever, and
  is basically the inventor of surrealism! Dali possessed excellent painting skills – his works were technically brilliant – and an extraordinary imagination. The artist was also an excellent showman, and had a love for outrageous and provocative acts.
