PAINTERS I DON'T GET
I can fill endless lists with artist who inspire me, artists I would want to squat into like the alien from Men in Black, even artists I like although they don't really inspire me. There is another category, though, artists whose works leave me completely cold.
I know, there are so many painters I initially overlooked and I then came to worship.
I have worked hard at painters on this list, looked at their pictures in galleries and books, read about them, particularly when they are important reference for artists I do like.
Despite my good will these are the ones I just can't get excited about, actually they almost annoy me.
Leonardo ( as painter)
Goya- big gasp ( I love the etchings/aquatints though)
