I forgot Edward Hopper who has to be on my list. Especially his Cape Cod pictures.

I like Caravaggio and Delacroix, and Botticelli, but Wayne Thiebaud has my heart. I’m a primitive ape who’s easily amused. Props if you know the subject of the portrait.

I hope I listed Thiebaud. First painter I think of with questions like this. Wasn't familiar with this one and had to look it up. Pretty great.

... Someone once asked Andrew why he was so infatuated with the area (his home from birth to death) and didn't paint other locales (except a bit of Coastal Maine). ...
Ok as a life-long Mainer, who has spent all my summers down a dirt road from the Olson house, I couldn't in good fun let this one pass ... characterizing Andrew's Cushing output as '(except a bit of Coastal Maine)' is like ... telling someone of Babe Ruth's quite stellar pitching career with the Red Sox, and then saying he didn't play much otherwise (except a bit of hitting in New York) hah!
