Salvador Dali is one of the most famous and perhaps the most extravagant artists of the last century, who introduced the world to such an artistic direction in painting as surrealism, which made it possible to speak with connoisseurs of real art through the canvases created in this genre.

Van Gogh wrote "Portrait of Dr. Ray" after the following story: In December 1888, when Gauguin went out for a walk, behind his back he heard a hasty step.

It is not known what the artist wanted to tell him, but when the creator arrived home, in a fit of despair, he cut off his earlobe with a razor.
Georges Cera may not have been as famous to the general public as representatives of impressionism, but he went down in the history of world culture as the founder of neo-impressionism, and he also invented his own technique of transmitting flowers in paintings, which was called pointillism or divisionism.

The painter Brueghel is the last in the Dutch Renaissance. In his works on the late medieval type of thinking, he demonstrated the stupidity and weakness of man. Peter Bruegel in 1566 created the following works: "The Sermon of John the Baptist", "Census", "Beating of Babies."
Gustav Klimt has repeatedly turned to women's topics. He was worried about the woman’s inner world, as the predecessor of the film “Three ages of a woman” - the painting “Love” - can testify to. In his unusual picture, the artist tried to touch on the widest possible subject - the psychological state of a woman in different age categories.
