David Hockney

David Hockney is an English painter who studied at the Royal Academy of Art in London.  He is known for his portraiture in painting and photography.  Hockney was openly gay and would often times paint his lovers or make reference to his love for men.  He also was very close to his mother who shows up in his work quite often.  I love his bright colors and how his work revolves around his personal relationships.

Henry Rosseau

The story of Henry Rosseau is as magical as his paintings.  He was born in France in 1844 and never left.  His wild imagination was enough to bring his painting places with a little help from looking at taxidermy animals and visits to botanical gardens.  What is even more interesting is that all of this came bursting out of him at the ripe age of 40, while he was still had a day job working for the government.  He was finally was able to dedicate all of his time to painting once he retired at 49 years old.  such beautiful work.
