Rogue's Gallery - Modern Artists
Marc Chagall | The art of Marc Chagall was influenced by folklore, religion, and mythology, and these themes were used by the painter to create a unique and visionary style of painting. I and the Village and Paris through the Window are two of Chagall's most memorable works.

Henri Matisse | Matisse was a Modern master who helped to liberate color and form from centuries of stodgy tradition, with grand results - he created wondrous works of lasting beauty and enchantment. From sensuous paintings of flowers to depictions of exotic women, Matisse excelled at painting seductive and compelling images.

Pablo Picasso | One of the great artistic innovators of the Twentieth Century, Picasso dabbled in various styles, including Cubism - but his unique vision and personal style are perhaps his most enduring contributions to art history.
