Painters I Love

My 5 favorite painters. Click the name to see their art.

                   By Mae Chevrette 

Helene Schjerfbeck

I love how her work is rugged and very delicate at the same time.

Ilya Repin

I love how his paintings are full of stories. When I look at them, I can't stop thinking "what happened?" "why?" "who is she?".

Edgar Degas

I love his beautiful ballet dancer paintings. 

Claude Monet

I love how he uses color

Beatrix Potter

I love her soft color palette. And her characters, of course ;) 


  1. Amrita Shergill was a renowned Indian painter. She was one of the most charismatic and promising Indian artists of the pre-colonial era. Most of her paintings reflect vividly her love for the country and more importantly her response to the life of its people. castle hill painter
