The Famous Artists is compiling a list of many of the world’s greatest artists with surnames that start with the letter C. The variety of styles and subjects painted by these artists literally runs from A to Z.

Our collection of famous C artists begins with one of the most well-recognized names in the art world – Paul Cezanne. Cezanne was one of the great French Impressionists who embraced the Plein Air style of painting.

Along with Cezanne, we have found an innovative Italian portrait painter. Rosalba Carriera is often credited with combining portrait painting, miniatures, pastels and ivory into what many considered a new art form.

Another famous woman painter can be found here as well – Mary Cassatt; the American Impressionist.

While we know less about his life than we do Cezanne and Carriera, The Famous Artists is also excited to share with you the 13th Century Italian painter and mosaicist Pietro Cavallini.

Be sure to check out our biographies for both of these talented artists and a number of their most famous paintings.
