Top 200 Artists of the 20th Century

The Times UK recently had an online poll on who people thought was the Top Modern Artist (20th century). Not surprisingly, Pablo Picasso took home the top spot. I may not be the hugest fan of Picasso's, but one of my life goals is to go to Madrid and take in Guernica, his masterpiece of the bombing of Guernica, Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Chills.

I love modern art and am so glad most of my favorite artists are on this list- Cindy Sherman (#50), Jackson Pollock (#7), Frida Kahlo (#19), Mark Rothko (#28)! Click on each artist's name for more info on their work. LOVE LOVE LOVE! It only took one class and one professor to change the course of my college career and open my eyes to a lifelong passion. And yes, you can say, 'Omg, I can totally make that!' but you didn't, so just shut it. =P I hope you love modern art as much as I do!

I am going to comment just to tell you that I drooled over the Sotheby's Contemporary catalogue today at work.
