His works have often been the subject of debates within the art world. Trained as a figure painter , Prince began creating collages containing photographs in 1975. His image, ‘Untitled (Cowboy), a rephotograph constructed from cigarette advertisements , was the first ‘photograph’ to raise more than $1 million at auction when it was sold at Christie's New York in 2005, despite violating numerous copyright laws.
    • After living in New York City for 25 years, Prince moved to upstate New York. His minimuseum, Second House, was owned by the Guggenheim Museum , but was hit by lightning and burned down after being up for only six years from 2001 to 2007

The display of this image led to lawsuits by Shields' mother and the original photographer, and led to further discussion within the art community, concerning the role of voyeurism within photography .

  • 21. Jeff Koons (b 1955)
    • an American artist whose work incorporates kitsch imagery using painting, sculpture, and other forms, often in large scale.
  • 22. Rabbit 1986
    • Rabbit began as an inflatable,
    • store-bought, plastic toy. Its
    • transformation started when Koons
    • bought it, blew it up, and had it
    • cast in highly polished stainless steel.
    • While it appears to be a whimsical work of art, it also raises serious questions about what constitutes art.
    • Its mirrorlike surface also seduces the viewer, much as shiny silver in a jewelry store window would. As such, Rabbit addresses the heyday of luxury and consumerism in the 1980s.

  • 39. William Hogarth (1697 –1764)
    • He was a major English painter ,
    • printmaker , pictorial satirist ,
    • social critic and editorial cartoonist
    • who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art . His work ranged from excellent realistic portraiture to comic strip -like series of pictures called "modern moral subjects". Much of his work, though at times vicious, poked fun at contemporary politics and customs. Illustrations in such style are often referred to as "Hogarthian".
  • 40. Orgy from Hogarth’s „Rake’s Progress”
  • 41. Sir Joshua Reynolds ( 1723 – 1792)
    • He was an important and influential 18th century English painter , specialising in portraits and promoting the "Grand Style" in painting which depended on idealisation of the imperfect. He was one of the founders and first President of the Royal Academy . George III appreciated his merits and knighted him in 1769.
  • 42. Self-portrait
  • 43. Portrait of Nelly O’Brien (1763)
  • 44. Thomas Gainsborough ( 1727 – 1788)
    • He was one of the most famous portrait and landscape painters of 18th century Britain .

  • 46. Landscape River , 1768-1770
  • 47. John Constable ( 1776 – 1837)
    • He was an English Romantic painter . Born in Suffolk , he is known principally for his landscape paintings of Dedham Vale , the area surrounding his home—now known as "Constable Country"—which he invested with an intensity of affection. "I should paint my own places best", he wrote to his friend John Fisher in 1821, "painting is but another word for feeling„
    • His most famous paintings include Dedham Vale of 1802 and The Hay Wain of 1821. Although his paintings are now among the most popular and valuable in British art, he was never financially successful and did not become a member of the establishment until he was elected to the Royal Academy at the age of 52. He sold more paintings in France than in his native England.
  • 48. Dedham Vale , 1802
  • 49. The Hay Wain
  • 50. William Blake ( 1757 – 1827)
    • He was an English poet , painter , and printmaker . Largely unrecognised during his lifetime and c onsidered mad by contemporaries , Blake is now considered a very important figure in the history of both poetry and the visual arts of the Romantic Age . His visual artistry has led one modern critic to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced". Although he only once journeyed farther than a day's walk outside London during his lifetime,he produced a diverse and symbolically rich corpus, which embraced ' imagination ' as "the body of God", or "Human existence itself". [5]
    • Blake is held in high regard by later critics for his expressiveness and creativity, and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work.
  • 51. Nightmare (1782)
  • 52. Satan smiting Job (1825)
  • 53. William Turner ( 1789 - 1862)
    • He was an English painter who specialised in watercolour landscapes. He was a contemporary of the more famous artist J. M. W. Turner and his style was not dissimilar. He is often known as William Turner of Oxford or just Turner of Oxford to distinguish him from his better known namesake. Many of Turner's paintings depicted the countryside around Oxford. One of his best known pictures is a view of the city of Oxford from Hinksey Hill .
  • 54. Snowstorm (1842)
  • 55. Sun Setting over a Lake (ca. 1840)
  • 56. Francis Bacon (1909 – 1992)
    • Francis Bacon (28 October 1909 – 28 April 1992) was an Irish born British figurative painter. Bacon's artwork is known for its bold, austere, homoerotic and often violent or nightmarish imagery, which typically shows room-bound masculine figures isolated in glass or steel geometrical cages set against flat, nondescript backgrounds.
    • Margaret Thatcher famously described him as "that man who paints those dreadful pictures".
  • 57. Study after Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953)
