I was in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in February and stood for about 30 mins just staring at his "Wheat Field with Crows". The whole place was full of greatness. Next day I went the The Hague to see Varmeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring". Sublime.

Coming up to date, I like video artists such as Ori Gerst (see here) and just about anything by Wolfgang Tillmans. Ranger1 mentioned Turner: one of the all time greats, but we owe it all to Giotto.

Louise Bourgeoise. I saw some of her work in a book about female artists around twenty years ago. I haven't seen anything that's impressed me quite as much since.

Once upon a time I would have said Magritte

another time Rothko

another time Mondrian or Escher or Klimt

and the pre-Raphaelites and the Impressionists and CAVE ART!

Visual art is, for me, very much like music. It is a mood thing.

It all depends. I like almost all visual art, 2-D and 3-D (and I suppose 4, 5, 6...-D). I'm intrigued by the possibilities in using pure light as an art medium but the technology ain't there yet.

Looking at my office walls I find "Reflections" by Teter, three Navajo rugs, a Navajo sandpainting ("Father Sky") and a copy of a page from the Book of Kells. There's a Navajo folk art statue of a patriotic chicken, a glass clown, and a statue of a young girl which dates from about 1870 or so.

So...my taste is very eclectic and I'll keep it that way, thank you.

Oh, yeah...somewhere I have a Miro lithograph and some other original stuff by folks who aren't quite as well known as Miro.

If you want Ansel Adams in colour look no further than l/h guitar's David Muench. Georgia O'Keefe was married to Alfred Stieglitz, another great American Photographer who was one of the first curators to promote European Modern Art (Picasso et al)in the USA.

I'm lucky enough to have been to both Miro Foundation sites (one in Palma, Mallorca, the other in Barcelona). If you like Miro, you gotta go...they are just wonderful. And I've been to the Frogner Park in Oslo, that's something else! While I was in Oslo I fulfilled an ambition by seeing Munch's "The Scream". I was standing in front of it and my bloody mobile phone went off!

Paul Klee is one of my favorites, too, Rap...

When I was born my mom bought a Klee print, put it in my nursery and it's been with me all my life... It is two abstract clowns... I've always known they were clowns but learned a few yea5rs ago that my mom can't see them for what they are???

Klee's story, however, is a sad one... He was a Jewish art professor in the 30s in Germany and as all Jews was removed from a job that he loved... I might have the dates slightly off but I think he was removed in '37 and died (from illness) in '39... I believe my print is from '38...
