As a great admirer of figurative art, and having sold, published and curated countless exhibitions of figurative painters, I wanted to share my admiration for those I believe to be among the greatest figurative artists of all time. These important painters of the 20th and 21st centuries have contributed significantly to art history in a way so many painters can only dream of achieving. These are some of my absolute favorites. I hope that you will enjoy viewing their work as much as I do, along with so many admirers and collectors worldwide.
Spanish figurative artist Vicente Romero is a master of oil painting, but it is his ability to use pastels that truly sets him on a pedestal. He coaxes out the very essence of his subjects’ souls through his pastel paintings as they leap from his easel, having been blessed with their first breaths of life.
