The Famous Artists is proud to present our growing collection of biographies of selected artists with a surname starting with the letter L.
The two famous L artists we have profiled so far are quite different in both style and subject. Our first famous artist is the Danish landscape painter Janus La Cour. His landscapes often had a cloudy or gray sky which seemed to illuminate the countryside below.
Our second L artist is Sir Edwin Landseer, the English artist famous for his animal paintings which portrayed animals with human emotions and expressions. Landseer’s paintings were overall darker than La Cour’s in both theme and coloring.
