Henri Rousseau (1844-1910)
Henri, from Laval, France, and dubbed “Le Douanier” (customs officer) after his occupation found primitive art late in life. He at once mastered a landscape formula, and beginning after 1904 created more than twenty large fanatistic jungle paintings. They evidence his mastery of a formal language, oblivious of convention, that owes nothing to traditional methods. The images, smooth, vivid, and clearly defined, are flat and fluid against dense but dimensionless greenery, and although unreal and extraordinary, are rendered in meticulous botanical detail.
Self-Portrait 1661 Oil on canvas 114 x 94 cm
English Heritage, Kenwood House, London by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669).
Rembrandt, the greatest of all the Baroque masters settled in Amsterdam in 1631. He took a sensuous interest and delight in the physical qualities of his medium, independence from the subject. He caked his surfaces with more paint than necessary, replaced exact imitation of form by the suggestion of it, and used a brown ground so that his paintings emerged from dark to light. He worked in complex layers, building up a picture from the back to the front with delicate glazes that allowed light to permeate his backgrounds and reflect off the white underpainting.
Tracey's life and art are inextricably entwined. She is unflinchingly honest about details of her life, indulging people's voyeuristic greed. She was born in London, raped at 13, and, as promiscuous truant, had two abortions. In 1994 she exhibited a phial of a tissue from one of her abortions and a crumpled Benson & Hedges packet that her uncle had been holding when he was decapitated in a car crash.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851)
A romantic landscape and marine artist, topographer and universal art visionary, pulsating with colour and atmospherics, Turner is considered Britain's greatest painter.
View of Delft
The Hague, Mauritshuis 99x118 1660-61
Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675)
Johannes Vermeer created luscious canvases of women and men in seventeenth-century rooms, outdoor scenes, allegory and religious themes. Intricate combinations of light, color, proportion and scale enhance the mood and reality of the subjects.
The Last Supper
1498 Fresco, 460 x 880 cm (15 x 29 ft);
Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie (Refectory), Milan by Leonardo Da Vinici (1452-1519).
Leonardo Da Vinici, a painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time.
Matisse was the leader of the Fauvist (meaning Wild Beasts) Movement, a painting style which focused on pure colors used in an aggressive and direct manner. His style changed many times over the years, but he never gave up his art. Matisse continued creating even into his 80's, when cancer had taken over his body. This was the time when he created the papercuttings that he is perhaps best known for. Matisse understood perfectly the relationship between color and shape, a talent which rightfully earned him the name "Master of Color."
Ruscha was born in Omaha, raised in Oklahoma and moved to Los Angeles in the late 1950s to study commercial art. His work questions the values of traditional symbols and calls attention to our role in art and culture by highlighting our intuitions through his use of words, color and proportion. Words or blocks of color often float on that part of a panorama where the sky meets the ground.
Woodengraving, April, 1935 printed by Escher himself. One of the best-known and, to many, one of the most puzzling of the artist's early prints, from his first show at the Whyte Gallery in Washington, D.C., a few years before World War II.
Mapplethorpe was born New York. He studied painting and sculpture and received his B.F.A. at the Pratt Institute. In order to create images for collages of men, Mapplethorpe turned to photography, working as a staff photographer for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. He photographed socialites and celebrities such as John Paul Getty III and Carolina Herrera.
Marcel Duchamp, a painter, sculptor and author, was associated with Cubism, Dadaism and Surrealism. Duchamp’s work is characterized by humor, a wide variety of media, and its incessant probing of the boundaries of art. His legacy includes the insight that art can be about ideas instead of objects.

How it works
Upon registration a snippet of html code is provided which includes an assigned id.
Participants should promply install the html code.
Participants may update their information using their id and password.
All of the information may be edited except for the id.
The rankings are reset each month.
Certain referals are not counted and do not advance a site in the rankings at all; others are only partial counted.
These include, on occasion, referals from sites by servers with the same or substantially similar IP numbers within a short
interval, referals that would cause the ratio of total hits in to be out of proportion to the traffic out, referals
from small windows or frames or that otherwise appear not to be from an actual viewer, and referals from pages without
the logo or the word Passionflower in hypertext.
Slowloading images are omitted even if the participating site is among the top ranked sites.
