Welcome to TheFamousArtists.com!

The Famous Artists strives to become the best family-friendly art site on the web. We have artist biographies that focus on who the famous artists were as people and the beauty of their work. We’ll leave the overly graphic and over-exposed works of art to the larger sites. We’ll also leave the critical essays on style, technique and other such things to the museums and art scholars.

The Famous Artists is all about celebrating art and how so much of the world’s history and beauty has been captured on canvas, paper and wood.

So, come on in and explore our ever-growing list of famous artists in the public domain and their wonderful creations. We currently showcase almost 70 famous artists with detailed biographies and selected works. You may have heard of many of these painters and there could be a few you haven’t met before too.
