I like Goya's stuff (Black Paintings in particular) myself.

Zdzislaw Beksinski had some great pieces as well: http://i.imgur.com...

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

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

If you like Turner, you may want to try Zhang Daqian :P

The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

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.
