    Re: Dietse painters

    Brueghel, Bosh, for their prophetical paintings, or early surrealism. Whatever they had in their tea, it is not my cup of coffee. I do not directly like the paintings, but they are great, and communicate very strong ideas. It is also excellent craft. Magritte and Escher are also among my favorites. There are many more too...

    And of course I anytime lend an ear to Vincents emotional changes...

    Re: Dietse painters

    From this list, definately Jeroen Bosch, he's been a big influence on Pieter Bruegel de Oude and 20th century surrealism, which happens to be my favourite movement in visual art.

    I quite like both of them, but Magritte wasn't Diets but Walloon.

    Re: Dietse painters

    My favorite from this list is definitely Rembrandt, though I do appreciate and enjoy many others as well.

    Rembrandt is perhaps best known for his intensely atmospheric portraits, but I also like his landscapes. Here is a beautiful example called "The Stone Bridge." Click it to view a larger image.

    Re: Dietse painters

    Rembrandt is not only my favorite from the list, but one of my favorite painters overall. There is someting profound about his paintings. Some of my favorites include Philosopher Reading and Philosopher in Meditation. I also admire his landscapes -(e.g. Stormy Landscape, Landscape with a Castle) and self-portraits.

    I appreciate and enjoy work from all of the artists listed, but my favorites are Rogier Van Der Weyden, Pieter Bruegel and Dirk Bouts. I especially like Northern European religious realism from the fifteenth century (Rogier Van Der Weyden and Dirk Bouts) because the paintings can have a spiritual impact on the viewer. The landscapes of Bruegel appeal to me because, well, they are absolutely breathtaking!

    Not mentioned on the list is one of my most favourite Dietse artists called Jan Steen. He painted vivid almost photographic pictures full of fun with a soap opera realism!

    Aren't Steen's paintings fascinating? I especially adore this one:

    The Wedding Party, circa 1667-1668
