Love that Freud too Pdoc, and of course Turner also anything by Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Degas ... almost anything by Pissarro and Gauguin. I love the St Ives artists, including, (in no particular order) Wilhelmina Graham, Patrick Heron, Alfred Wallis, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon and of course Sir Terry Frost who is an absolute star ... I once had the privilege of helping to hang an exhibition of his work . I'm a huge Picasso fan too and have been immensely moved by the Rothko room in the Tate. I could go on and on and on ............ most of Sonia Delaunay's work delights me and I'm currently interested in the work of the American painter Dana Schutz who I knew when she attended Norwich School of Art when I was there.
As for a favourite painting ... I don't think I have one .. it changes from week to week ....... but for the past few years a painting that's made my heart sing every time I see it (and I see it often) is Chaim Soutine's La Dame en Bleue which is in the permanent collection at the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts here at the UEA.
