Default Favorite Visual Artist?

In order to choose which names to put in the poll, I picked the 9 most popular artists according to Artcyclopedia. ("The most popular artist searches last month: a lighthearted measurement of which famous artists have the greatest "mindshare" in our collective culture.")

Obviosly there are plenty of others, and there is a poll option for this -- tell us who it is!

I can't decide between Picasso and Van Gogh.... well, I'll choose Vincent because he doesn't have any votes yet.

I just love Monet's style too much! I've had the opportunity to make some reproduction of his paintings and I must admit I had a great time...

Salvador Dali without any hesitation....I like his universe, his crazyness, his unique vision of the world...the melting clocks painting is a "chef d'oeuvre".

Claude Monet! He started the impressionism movement, which like no other style focused on the influence of natural light on colour patterns. This resulted in some of the most joyous, colourful, and (forgive me for this) impressive paintings the world has ever seen.
Anybody remembers my old avatar? It's by Monet!

yes, I remember that! That painting is on the cover of one of my books of piano pieces by Debussy, a composer with a sensibility quite similar to Monet's!
