List of famous American painters with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

For a layman, alien to the world of art, there barely exists any difference between a million-dollar Picasso and finger paintings of an inebriated gorilla. Blame it on the elites who have made art their exclusive domain and don’t mind coughing up fortunes on photos of dead crows. No wonder, art now flourishes solely in wealthy cultures. Having said that, an appreciator of aesthetics and art cannot ignore the incredible artistic achievements of painters who have wowed the world with their unbelievable, eye-popping paintings. From sculptures bursting out of paintings to incredibly intricate non-photo shopped scenes, the world of art has evolved extensively since Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” or Picasso’s “Guemica”. Sadly not too many people know about such enterprising artistes today. Now only if your thought that great art died with the Dalis and the Goghs, know that the contemporary world is replete with many such incredible artistes who have left a last impression on world’s canvass. Let us explore the biography, trivia and facts about some such famous American painters.
