Question of the Day

Who is your favorite artist, and why?


James R. Rummel said...

Norman Rockwell, because his work always invokes an emotional response.

Isn't that the very definition of art?

It varies from time to time. This morning though I'm leaning towards Gustav Borghlum. Borghlum did several extremely large sculpturs Mt. Rushmore and Stone Mountain. his smaller work is also intricately done and beautiful.

Dan Trabue said...

My daughter, because her work is just adorable.

Also, it fits nicely on the fridge.

Rockwell's always good. At times, he's underappreciated in the fine arts community due to his subject matter. Regardless of one's opinion of his choices, his technical skill was top-tier.

I've never heard of Gustav Borghlum. I'll look into him.

Dan -- and I bet that the prices at auction can't be beat!
