I don't remember the name of this artist.
I can't pick one favorite artist. I like all of the French impressionists and many others too.
I can't pick a favorite muscian.......I like most.
I like all art (except for modern or the type above) and again, I can't pick just one. : )

    Ahhh ..... Magritte !!  My son just bought one of his prints last week.  It's that one that's a kind of combination of the first two pics here ..... The guy in the top hat with an apple in front of his face.  Called  'The Son of Man.'   Tina
