Lin Fengmian [Bio
His innovative blending of traditional Chinese and Western painting styles
made him one of the true great artists of the 20th century. Unfortunately,
those Maoist bastards destroyed most of his great works and imprisoned Lin
during the infamous Cultural Revolution in the 1960s.

I really like these Neoclassical painters like Draper. The tints,
subject matter and composition in his Pearls of Aphrodite below are
absolutely stunning! BTW, those Neoclassical dudes really had a fixation on
red hair though. ;-)
