10. Jackson Pollock (1912-1956)-
Jackson Pollock transcended his limitations in a brief but incandescent period between 1947 and 1950 when he created the drip abstractions that cemented his renown. Eschewing the easel to lay his canvases fait on the floor, he used house paint directly from the can, chucking and dribbling thin skeins of pigment that left behind a concrete record of his movements- a technique that would become known as action painting.
9. Claude Monet (1840-1926)-
Tha French impressionist painter, most popular paintings include Waterlilies, Impression Sunrise and Women in Garden, Perhaps the best know artist among the Impressionists, Claude Monet captured the variable effects of light on the scenery through prismatic shards of color delivered as rapidly painted strokes. Moreover, his several studies of sheaves and other subjects anticipated the use of serial imagery in Pop Art and Minimalism.
8. Salvador Dali (1904-1989)-
One of the most famous artists of the Surrealist movement, Dali is renowned for his absurd and bizarre aesthetic. Oftentimes, due to the Spaniard’s personality and attention-grabbing nature, Dali was regularly seen to be exhibiting ostentatious behaviour, indulging in all kinds of luxuries and exotic elements. His most famous work, The Persistence of Memory (1931) is a work denoting the way time melts in a dream-like state, which is one of the many interpretations of this painting.

Remarkably, Vermeer was largely forgotten for two centuries before his rediscovery in the 19th century. Since then, he’s been renowned as one of art history’s most important figures, an artist capable of rendering works of mysterious beauty. Many have argued the Vermeer used a camera obscura- an early form of a projector- and certainly the soft blur he employs appears to foreshadow Photorealism.
