This has come up before, and I always hate this question. Why do we only get 3?

Anyway... it changes all the time. Right now it is Botticelli (that one is pretty constant) Michelangelo (that one is new... I never cared for him when I thought of myself as a painter, but now that I'm thinking of myself as a sculptor... well... what can I say?) and Max Ernst ('cause I'm in an odd mood today )

Changes from time to time. I'm submerged in Giacometti now. Millet has always been a favorite. Delacroix stays up there more often than not. Just three, huh? Just in this post, right?

Re: Who are your 3 favorite artist?

Hello, my favourite are: Leonardo Da Vinci (Mona Lisa is ,for me, the best portrait ever ) , Raffaello Sanzio (same period of Leonardo and Michelangelo- he was famous especially for his madonnas), Rubens

My three current favourite living artists. (Mathew Barney and Phil Hale would be first runners-up...)

I love the artwork of the past, but somehow, I'm far more into the stuff that's being done today. It seems fresher, far more relevant, and a surprising amount of it is every bit as good (technically, and especially conceptually) as anything done in the past.

(Seriously scary stuff, don't view if easily offended.)

My three would have to be Albrecht Durer, Giotto, and Titian. All great in the own fields.
