Van Gogh had some great pieces too, plus the Doctor Who episode about him is one of my favorite episode.

Caravaggio, Da Vinchi also a general fan of neo-classical art, with no painters of that specified.

"I thought about the Paschal Candle. Wounded in its wax, wounded in its wick, wounded in its light, having the Passion of Christ in it and having therefore the woundedness of the world in it, it was there at our cradle, going before us and guiding us in time, and now again, there it is at our coffin, going before us and guiding us into eternity."

It's not for everyone, but I've always liked the Chicago Imagist painter Roger Brown. His work is so quintessentially American midwestern.

Stunning. One of my favorite exhibits of all time at the Philadelphia Museum of Art was this huge traveling collection of Kano paintings. It really interested me in that whole general style of Eastern painting (their schools being heavily influenced by China's), but it's very hard to find extensive collections in my area of the world.
