    It's not quite art as such (or is it?!), but I do love this Gillray cartoon from 1793 showing how 'John Bull' would deal with a French invasion. I love eighteenth-century caricatures: a lot of them are so scurrilous.

    Turner still rocks above anyone else for me. Not my favourite necessarily, but a good example.

    I met the son of an artist named Ken Kiff a few years ago. Met the artists very good friend also and subsequently took an interest in his work. Ken Kiff... a colourist.

    Photographers. Thomas Struth. However, fine art photographs need to be experienced in the flesh as much as paintings do, but people seem to expect photographs to work on the web. Much information is missing here. You have to see well produced prints.

    I too liked "Piss Christ", but mostly because it induced apoplectic rage in Jesse Helms. :)

    I just saw it for the 1st time the other week. I don't really know enough about art history to say how much of an outlier it is..

    but it just seems to relaxed in its style. confident
